Learn and Practice Free Driver License Test for District of Columbia

Automobile License

You won’t be able to learn how to drive on DC public roads unless you earn a learner’s permit that is available only for persons older than 16. There are 2 types of the permits - the REAL ID and a Limited Purpose permit, which is intended for people who have no SSN and which features certain restrictions in use compared to the Real ID.

To get a REAL ID permit, a person has to collect the following documents:

  • an application form;
  • documents establishing date of birth, legal name, residency (2 proofs are required), SSN, parent approval (if you are under 18);
  • proof of completed mandatory driver education program.

The fees include:

  • $20 learner’s permit;
  • $10 knowledge test.

Having these documents, you can visit a DMV service center and undergo a vision screening and a written permit test in District of Columbia. The test is available in 15 languages and may be conducted with audio assistance. You can retake the test in 3 days, but you are limited to 6 attempts within a year from the first attempt.

Once you pass the test and obtain the permit, you are allowed to practice driving while observing some restrictions, which depend on your age. After obtaining necessary behind-the-wheel skills and passing a road test, you are eligible to qualify for a provisional license that is intended for persons under 21 years and valid for 1 year.

Motorcycle License

In District of Columbia, you are allowed to operate a motorcycle on the public streets only provided you are over 18, and you have a driver license with "М" endorsement. To get it, you have to undergo the DC pre-driving test based on the Motorcycle Operator Manual. If you pass it successfully, you will receive a learner’s permit, which allows driving practice. In DC, it is important that you complete a motorcycle demonstration course instead of passing a motorcycle road test in DC DMV facilities. Thus, to obtain the necessary endorsement, you have to submit:

  • an application;
  • a driver’s license;
  • proof of passing the motorcycle knowledge test;
  • a certificate proving you completed the demonstration course.

Motorcycle endorsement fee makes up $20.

Commercial Driver’s License

District of Columbia DMV offers Class A, B, and C CDLs and 6 endorsement options for various groups of commercial vehicles. They are available for persons over 21 with a valid driver license. CDL can be gained only by passing a road test, and you need a learner’s permit to get behind-the-wheel practice legally. Both general and specific testing is required prior to obtaining the permit. The number of tests depends on a desired class of CDL and the number of endorsements.

You can’t have CDL practice test in Spanish or any other languages except English. The CDL tests are held in Brentwood Center: you may come without an appointment, but you must arrive with a complete set of documents. The required package of documents includes:

  • NCDL issued in DC;
  • US passport or birth certificate (for U.S. citizens) or permanent resident card (for non-U.S. citizens);
  • medical examination report and medical examiner’s certificate card.

These are the following fees you have to pay in advance:

  • $78 learner’s permit;
  • $117 CDL license;
  • $20 CDL endorsement.

When preparing for passing any of District of Columbia knowledge tests, use Driver Start services to facilitate learning traffic rules and to test questions. We provide our users with a number of easy-to-use and effective methods available online without any registration. Also, you can download our up-to-date application from App Store or Google Play to learn and practice the permit tests via your smartphone or tablet.

Practice Driver Knowledge Test and Learn 10 Tips about Driving on Snowy and Icy Road

Did you find any useful practical tips about driving in adverse weather conditions in the Driver’s Manual you read before your driver knowledge test? Yes, there is something about safety when driving on a slippery road or during heavy rain and snow, but basically, the manuals give general recommendations about adjusting to specific driving conditions. So, it is hardly possible that you gain deep knowledge of driving on an icy road, while you practice the driver knowledge test. Behind-the-wheel experience is more useful, but it is rather dangerous to obtain it without being prepared in advance. On the other hand, you can practice the permit test and at the same time get prepared by reading helpful tips from experienced drivers. We collect the most common of them, starting from how to avoid dangerous situations and ending with how to act when you get on black ice.
