The knowledge test, also called the written test, is a 40 question, multiple choice test that covers the fundamentals of driving. Walk-in testing for the written test is available on Saturdays from 12-3 pm ($30 per 2 attempts both started within 1 hour -we won't start tests any later than 2:30 pm on Saturdays) or during the week by appointment ($50 per 2 attempts both started within 1 hour).
The Washington State Driver Guide covers all of the material that is in the test. The Driver Guide is available for download from the Department of Licensing website, or a hard copy is available if you visit any of the DOL's offices. In order to take the written test, you must bring in some form of ID (birth certificate & SS card or Washington State ID/Permit are both valid forms of ID for the test), and you must also bring your PIN/Confirmation ID #. This number is on Washington State IDs, Permits, and Licenses; if you don't have any of these, you can obtain your PIN/Confirmation ID # by preapplying online at the DOL's website.
Practice Test - Please note this practice test is to help you understand what the test format will be and is not a good study guide to help you prepare for the test.
The best way to prepare yourself for the test is to read the DOL Driver Guide.
