What if I fail the DDS written test?

  1. In order to get your permit, you must pass both the Road Rules Test and the Road Signs Test. If you fail only one of the tests, you will only need to retake the one you failed on your next attempt.
  2. If you fail, you must wait at least 1 day to retest.
  3. If you fail a second (or third, or fourth) time, you must wait at least 7 days to retest. You can test as many times as needed until you pass.
  4. Your $10 permit fee will have to be paid for each attempt - even if you only have one test left to pass- so make sure you study!
