The written knowledge test in Massachusetts is commonly known as the Learner’s Permit Exam. This is an exam that tests an applicants understanding of Massachusetts motor vehicle laws and safe driving practices. The exam can be administered in three formats: electronically using a kiosk, on paper or orally.
An applicant is required to take the vision test, pass the learner’s permit exam, and pass a road test to be a licensed driver in Massachusetts.
If an applicant has an out-of-state Class D or Class M license that is current or has been expired for less than a year, it may be transferred to a Massachusetts license if the customer meets the Registry of Motor Vehicles’ identification and eligibility requirements. The out-of-state license must indicate full driving privileges in that state.
Class D and M learner’s permit exams are available on a walk-in basis only during regular RMV branch hours, up until one hour before closing time.
Before taking the exam, you should read the Driver’s Manual carefully. Remember, many applicants fail the exam the first time.
