The knowledge test is a 40 question, multiple choice test that covers the fundamentals of driving. The Washington State Driver Guide covers all of the material that is in the test. The Driver Guide is avaliable 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. The cost of this test is $15 per attempt or $30 per attempt if you want the test read orally to you. Walk in testing for the written test is available during office hours (11-6 p.m. Tuesday-Friday or 9-3 p.m. on Saturday). Please keep in mind that summer is our busiest time of year. There are days when we won't be able to conduct written tests as rapidly. Please be patient. Wait times for the written test will usually be no longer than 15 minutes. If you want the test read to you orally, an appointment is necessary. Please call (360) 633-3636 to schedule an appointment.
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. The link to the Driver Guide is below.
