This Kansas DMV practice test has just been updated for July 2024 and covers 40 of the most essential road signs and rules questions directly from the official 2024 KS Driver Handbook. In order to receive your KS learner’s permit or license and drive in Kansas, you must first pass a written exam based on the Kansas Driving Handbook. That test is also known as the DMV permit test, driving test, DMV written test, driver’s license test, or simply the driver’s test. The exam will contain 25 multiple-choice questions and you must answer 20 correctly to pass. You may receive a learner’s permit if you are 14 years of age or older. You may qualify for a restricted driver’s license at age 15 or older and a regular driver’s license if you are age 16 or older. You may qualify for a farm permit if you are between the ages of 14 or 16, work on a farm, and meet other requirements. For all of these types of permits and licenses, though, you will still need to pass a vision exam and the written exam, which will cover topics such as Kansas’ rules of the road, vehicle laws, driver safety, and more. The learner’s permit fee is $2, plus an $8 photo fee. The regular class C driver’s license fee is $20 for those under age 21 and $12 for those over age 21. Along with the fee, you must pay an $8 photo fee and $3 testing fee.
