Whether you’re planning a fall foliage tour, a tour of Revolutionary War sites, or a visit to the Berkshires, you’ll need an operator’s license. If, on the other hand, you’re planning to drive commercially, you’ll need a commercial driver’s license (CDL). Before you can get a driver’s license, a motorcycle license, or a motorcycle endorsement, you must first obtain the corresponding type of learner’s permit. And the first step to obtaining a learner’s permit is to pass a written learner’s permit exam. Here you can find the RMV manuals you should study and practice tests you should take to help you prepare. Our practice tests include hundreds of questions that are based on the RMV manuals and resemble those on the official learner’s permit exams. We’ve even created some marathon practice tests to get you fully prepped and ready to pass your permit exam
