Introduction

If the time has come that you're ready to take your DMV permit test then you want to make sure you are well-prepared so you pass the first time.

Testing Your Knowledge

The first thing this app asks you for when you launch is the state in which you will be taking your Permit Test. This is important because different states can have different laws. After you select your state you are ready to begin the test preparation.

Because I want to give an accurate review I have answered a number of these questions and as a driver for more than 20 years I’m a bit embarrassed to admit I haven’t been able to get all the answers right! That just goes to show how important proper preparation is for this test as these sample questions are extremely similar to what you’ll find on the actual test.

Not all the content is free; if you want to unlock additional practice tests you'll need to purchase them. They are available from $0.99 to $3.99. To me this seems well worth it as you really don't want to have to re-write the test.

 

A Pleasing User Interface

Now as for how the information is presented, the user interface is clean, uncluttered, and simple to use. All focus is on the content and so it should be.

If you come across a question you feel unsure about you can tap on Hint and if you happen to get a question wrong you’ll be given the correct answer as well as an explanation. Even if you get the answer right you can still view the explanation if you like so you can get a full understanding and be that much better prepared for the test.

If you purchase the full version of a particular state you'll be given 230 questions in a variety of tests. You will also have access to Marathon Mode which will allow you to keep practicing until you get every single answer correct. This is a great way to make sure you really absorb the information and ensure a passing grade.

Final Verdict

This incredibly simple app has the sole purpose of making sure you are well prepared for your Permit Test and in that regard it passes with flying colors. The DMV Genius: Permit Practice Tests for Your State app seems like a wise choice if you plan on writing the test. Even if you feel you know all you need to know, it’s likely that there will still be a few questions that leave you stumped. Better to be stumped on the practice test than on the real thing.
