View Full Version : Permit Test in NJ
06-01-2008, 11:41 PM
How hard is the permit test in NJ. I picked up the NJ "Motorcycle Manual" just the other day, but didn't have much time to ask questions about the permit.
Is everything I need to know in that booklet?
Thanks for all the help!

besides the use of a motorcycle, everything else is like cars (traffic lights, signs, etc)

I took the Test to get my permit when I went in to title my new truck... read through the motorcycle manual 1 time...
make sure you read the alcohol section in the NJ motorvehicle book an employee there tipped me off5 ?'s from there and gave me the book for car auto test and i skimmed it and passed :)
then again I am 35 and have good common sense :D

The PA test wasn't too bad, the trick is to skip the hard questions unless you are 100% sure. as soon as you get 16 right, you automatically pass. some simple answers that will show on the test:
If they ask about anticipating a stop, cover the clutch and brakes is always the right answer. Most accidents are people riding under 6 months experience. When you see a dog, slow down, pass it, then speed up. its is most important to flash your brake light when you are about to suddenly stop. Other than those questions, the rest should be common sense

I just took the test last week.
As a licensed driver, I didn't realize I had to take the written test. Rather than having to make a second trip to the DMV, I thought it was worth the $5 risk to take it with a quick flip through the MC book that they handed me.
Most of the questions are actually from the standard driver's manual, so you get alot of questions on road signs and drinking and driving, and a few from the MC manual, like 'when riding with another motorcyclist, after passing a vehicle where should you take position in the lane?' (The correct answer was to the left of the lane, and far enough ahead that the second rider can tuck in behind you and on the right side of the lane.)
If you have a NJ license already, read through the MC Manual once or twice and you should be fine. If you don't, study the standard drivers manual and the MC manual.

You can sometimes find a sample test on your dmv's website as well. Some of the questions on CA sample was on the written test.

some sample tests can be found at dmv-driving-tests . com
it's a free website with online sample tests.
I think that test is easy if you read the handbook ;)
