Colorado Permit Test

  • No stress! Take your test in one of our quiet, calm offices rather than at the crowded DMV.
  • No waiting! We can test you anytime between 8AM and 5PM.
  • Our permit test package gives you two attempts at the test. In case you don't pass the first time, we'll make sure you understand the questions you missed using the CO Driver Handbook.
  • Quickly pop over to the DMV to get your permit issued once you've passed since our offices are super close to a Driver's License Office.

We’re a DMV-approved, third party testing center where you can take your written knowledge test—also known as the permit test—in an enjoyable, stress-free atmosphere. If the crowds at the Driver’s License Facility unnerve you, our quiet classroom can be a nice alternative. For the price of $25, you can take the permit test twice with us (if you don’t pass the first time and if you missed less than thirteen questions), right away at no extra charge. Please be aware that we close at 5 pm. We will not be able to start a test after 4:30 pm, in order to give you enough time to complete the test without feeling rushed.

The Colorado Written Permit Test is a 25-question test that covers the contents of the Colorado Driver Handbook. We have Colorado Driver Handbooks for sale for $3.00 each in our office or use the link above to download it for free from the DMV. There are some new rules so if it’s been a while since you’ve taken your permit test, it’s worthwhile to peruse the handbook to see what’s changed.

Our permit test package is good for two tests. If you don’t pass the first time, we’ll review what you missed and can then proctor a second test as long as you didn’t miss more than thirteen questions (50%) the first time. 

We will need to see the following items before we can test you:

1. Your preregistration number. (See next drop down section for instructions on how to obtain one.) 

2. A photo ID which can include a Colorado Identification card, a school ID card, a passport, green card, etc. Make sure to bring that in when you come for your test. 

3. High school students who are taking the test need to bring in their birth certificate—cannot be a copy—and some form of photo ID or school ID card. A passport or Colorado ID card will work in place of both the birth certificate and photo ID. It’s best if you start your test before 4:00PM so, if you pass, you’ll have time to pop over to the DMV and have them issue your permit.

Again, thank you for considering us. We hope you’ll choose Learn to Drive—the stress-free antidote to the DMV for your written permit test.

If you’re feeling uncertain or hesitant about taking the test, we understand! We’ve helped hundreds of people in your situation and have two options to consider.

1. You could take some of our online Practice Permit Tests from the comfort of your own home before you come in to our office. This will help you get comfortable taking a test that is very similar to the actual permit test.

2. Another option is to take our Permit Prep Class which is a one-on-one tutoring session with one of our instructors just prior to taking your test. This session covers the Colorado Driver’s Handbook and will help you understand the new rules and regulations before you take the test. See the Permit Prep Class + Permit Test below.

Please note: While we can test you, please understand that only the DMV can issue your permit.

Again, thank you for considering us. We hope you’ll choose Learn to Drive—the stress-free antidote to the DMV for your written permit test.

The Colorado DMV now requires all students to pre-register their personal information with the State of Colorado before completing a Permit Test. If you already have a Colorado ID card or have done this process before and still have your preregistration code, you won’t need to go through it again. This process allows the DMV to confirm which documents you will bring to their offices when it’s time to get your teen’s driver permit issued.  While it’s a bit of a hassle up front, it should streamline the process of obtaining a permit at the DMV. 

PLEASE NOTE:  If you already have a Colorado ID card, you can skip this step. Just make sure to bring your Colorado ID card to the class. If you already have a pre-registration code, please have your teen bring it with them at the beginning of class. If you do not have a pre-registration code, please follow the directions below to obtain one. You must have a pre-registration code to complete your course and take the permit test.
