Get Your Massachusetts
Learner's Permit!

The Massachusetts Permit Test is a 25 question exam where you need to get 18 correct to pass. No worries: You can pass the MA permit test easily with help from The Next Street.

Remember:

  • To receive your Learner's Permit, you must be at least 16 years old, take a vision test, written exam, and provide all required documents. If you are under 18 years of age, you must have the written consent of a parent, legal guardian, or other qualified individual, given by signing the Driver's License, Learner's Permit, or ID Card application. 
  • All teen drivers must hold a Learner’s Permit for 6 months before taking their license test, in addition to completing Driver's Ed requirements
  • You can be 15 years and 9 months old to start Driver's Ed. You do not need your permit to start driver's ed. In fact, we recommend you take a few classes before testing, as many of the material on the test is covered in the first classes
  • In addition to the written test, your vision will be tested. If you wear glasses or contacts, be sure to bring them with you on test day.

Learner's Permit Vision Test

It is a requirement to have a vision test in order to receive your permit. If you wear glasses or contacts, be sure to bring them with you. If you’re having trouble with your vision, get a checkup with your eye doctor prior to going to the RMV. You don't want the RMV Vision Test to be when you realize you need glasses. If you fail your Vision Test, you will not be able to take the Knowledge Test and you will need to schedule another test date.

Learner's Permit Knowledge TestFlexible Payment Plans

After you pass your vision test, the second part of the Permit Test is a knowledge test. The Knowledge Test is a 25 question, multiple choice exam taken online. The questions are a random selection from a pool of safe driving questions… and they aren’t easy. You have 25 minutes and you must get at least 18 correct answers in order to pass. Don’t go in cold; make sure you study! If you use The Next Street Permit Prep eBook, you should have no problem passing your test.
