  • Helpful, but don’t rely on just this app! Dec 11, 2019

    By Jasminexaa
    I recently passed my permit test, so here are some suggestions that I definitely recommend doing if you want to pass! I know everyone says this, but I can’t stress it enough, read the manual! I live in Tennessee and every question on my test came straight from the book. If you don’t want to read the book then skim through the pages at least. I really only used the book to study the alcohol and dui portion, everything else I studied from doing practice quizzes online. If you live in Tennessee I recommend taking the test on paper, make sure to ask for it otherwise you’ll be taking it on the computer. I took the computer test, the questions are worded differently so make sure to read it carefully before choosing an answer! Don’t rely on just this app alone because none of the questions that were on this app appeared on my actual test. However, there were some that were similar. I passed with only 1 wrong. The test itself isn’t hard, unless you make it hard. It’s mostly filled with commonsense, it isn’t timed so don’t rush. If you don’t pass the first time you can always retake it. I believe in you, you got this!

    This app is perfect except for the ads. I keep getting this ad that forces you to play a mini game and when you finally finish, there is never an x. Never. I waited for like a minute on a still screen and the only button that showed up was the PLAY NOW button. This forces me to close and reopen the app. Please fix this.

  • Extremely helpful! Made the test easy. I just passed! Jan 23, 2019

    By Amelia_19
    So happy that I used this app to help me study! It made the test feel really easy! The first time I tried taking the test last year, I used different means of studying, and unfortunately did not pass. However, this app was wonderfully helpful, and I passed with little difficulty this time around! The way the app is designed is very user friendly, but most importantly, it helps you to retain information in a fun, informative, and sustainable way. The smaller tests really teach you the information; and I loved the marathon tests, where it kept giving you the questions you got wrong until you’ve proven that you’ve learned them. My process: I went through all the tests in order, followed by going through the marathons again to review, then used “exam mode” before wrapping up. And then on test day (while I waited in line at the RMV), I took the “exam mode” again and again probably 15 or 20 times just to refresh. I tried many different programs, and this is by far the best app in my opinion!

    My friend recently took her permit test using this app, and she recommended it to me. I gave it a try at first, and it was rather difficult. However, this was because it was my first time taking the quizzes, so there’s no blame on the app. After taking the quizzes repeatedly until I got 100% each time I took them, I was ready for the simulation. I only failed once to get a pass right afterward! Every time after, I passed as well; sometimes I even got 100%. I went to the DMV this morning, took my test online, and the questions were almost EXACT to the ones on the app. Only reworded! I passed my permit test with only 2 wrong answers, but I flew through the exam. I highly recommend this app to people who are unsure about what’s on the test. This app is very accurate to what you’ll see at the DMV. If you want to go the extra distance and get premium, feel free. I did not purchase premium and STILL ended up passing. PLEASE DOWNLOAD!

    Absolutely recommend this app! I did get the Premium, and I passed my Written Test for first time! (I got my Instruction Permit) I wouldn't recommend doing what I did, which was cramming the night before, but I completed most of the tests in this, and I only missed one question (which I knew the answer!) out of the 40. :)

  • Good app but didn’t work for New Jersey Test Jul 2, 2018

    By Hachihachoochoo123456789yeah
    So this app is pretty good; it’s motivational, has lots of questions, and makes sure you review anything you got wrong. I’m glad it worked out for so many people but the road test practice questions for the New Jersey road test needs to be updated. Considering there were 10 tests, one of them being 360 questions, I’d feel I knew a good amount of questions for the road test. But during the test I’d say only roughly 15 seemed remotely familiar. The rest I knew from the drivers manual. Plus during the actual test, the choices I had learned to choose from the app were wrong. I wish I could post them so changes can be made but I don’t remember them. Also I know the app has repeat questions so people can review what they learned in the past but the frequency of the repeats is too often, there should be more varied questions to review for more information. If you’re taking the road test, use this app first since it seems easy to learn with but then read the actual manual to make sure the information you need to focus on for your state is accurate.

  • (EDITED) Massachusetts Permit Exam Pass Aug 9, 2018

    By RPrewett
    It’s absolutely ridiculous that the creators created this new premium feature that it’s very expensive. I was lucky enough to have taken the test two days before the update came out so I was able to access all the tests, some of which are now charged for. I had recommended this to my friends who will be taking their tests in the upcoming months but I’m going to go right back to them and tell them forget it because the app is just about useless now. They say the “core functionality” is still there, but the most helpful tests like marathon and the road signs test have been set to premium. They may have added some other tests, but many other people along with me were able to pass without all those added tests. But, the following text is what my original review said when the app was FREE. “THIS APP IS AMAZING! After passing all the practice tests, I was able to pass my permit test without getting any wrong! I got all 18 I needed to get right straight away! I would also recommend, at least for MA, reading/skimming through the drivers manual! You got this!”

    I studied for 5 hours over the course of 3 days leading up to my permit test. I did all of the free practice tests and passed all of them I was feeling really confident going into the test. I passed the signs easy but then on the next section with the rules I failed by a lot. This app will not help you unless you pay for premium. I would recommend using the dmv manual online to study this app will waste your time, money, and storage on your phone. If you are thinking about studying for your permit test don’t NOT use this app it will give you false hope that you are actually ready for the test. Because I trusted this app all my friends make fun of me because i failed and my parents a mad at me because I didn’t study hard enough and they think I don’t care enough about driving to work for it. ————————————————— DO NOT USE THIS APP TURN BACK WHILE YOU CAN!!!!!!!!!!😡😡😡😡

  • This app is amazing, I Passed my TN, Class A CDL😁‼️ Aug 23, 2018

    By LLTeddy52
    At first I was nervous cause, I thought it’s just a normal app with lies. Then I started studying it and wow it blew my mind. Especially when I studied the exam. At first I studied the “test” on here and went to the DMV and failed my tests on the first try😔. I got really discouraged. But I asked myself, what’s the difference between “test” and the “exam “ on here. It’s totally different. Once I started studying the exam part, it had different questions and answers. I studied the exam on here and pass all my tests on the second try with flying colors. The questions and answers are the Exact same in the DMV. It blew my mind how this app helps you some much. I never read the book, I only studied this app and I passed all my tests. Now I’m going back to take all my endorsements. I never in my life wrote a review but this app changed my life and gave me so much hope. I will recommend this app to everybody. This app is legit.

  • Great Resource Jul 8, 2020

    By cstunes
    Just passed my written permit test in California (46 questions) and used this app to prepare. Highly recommend supplementing this resource into your studying for the test. I did not purchase premium but used all three practice tests, the diagnostic, and the road signs mini test. That was sufficient enough for me but I am sure that getting premium would be even better. The information and wording is incredibly accurate to what shows up on the actual test. I came across a few questions on the exam that were formatted the exact same way on a practice test here. The marathon tests are also very helpful for reviewing the questions you scored poorly at. I think the best thing you can do to prepare is to READ the Driver’s Manual frequently and use DMV genie to familiarize yourself with the test-taking. Don’t stress too much but if you study sufficiently, you will be destined for greatness!

    Edit: So I spoke with the developer. And they told me because Android and Apple are totally different platforms i have to repurchase the premium version. So watch out for that if you switch. I love the app overall but when I got a new phone (Android) "I switched over from apple", and tried to log in its saying it doesn't recognize the email and there is no way to contact anyone. I have the premium version and don't want to have to pay another $15 and start all over.

  • I passed my Core NY CDL test!!! Sep 11, 2018

    By Jrod Buffalo NY
    I have been going over the NY CDL handbook for some time, but never committed enough, I found this app about two months ago and I went on the app every time I felt bored or just to try it out, after almost two months -having previously read the book over a couple of times- I went took and passed my CDL B permit !! Thanks to this easy user friendly app!! I couldn’t be any happier, thank you !!!...The main reason of my review was to let every user and admin that this app DO work!! Now I go back in the app and there is a $9.99 for Pro version that was NOT needed to be paid for before, I mean I get it, but your app has thousands of downloads plus people like me share and recommend your app sadly now we got to pay to get multiple test and questions not being repeated, basically:(

  • Actually pretty good Apr 16, 2019

    By Sehedra
    So, when I took my permit test for the first time, I completely failed it. I decided to download this app and study. It was pretty easy to study on he go or at home, and it even let you pick your own states’s diving handbook. The only thing is, when I went to do my test after studying for 10+ hours, there were a few questions on there that weren’t on the practice test anywhere. I can’t say for sure it’ll be wrong, but that’s just my experience. 4/5 stars. Great app, but it doesn’t have every feature and question that I would like.

  • nice but has an annoying bug Dec 13, 2019

    By kneec4ps
    It’s a very helpful app with questions pertaining to my state that helped me ace my permit test, but now that my permit expired and I have to take the test again, I’m noticing new problems. Most notably, whenever I’m supposed to get my results after finishing the practice test to see how I would do on the actual exam, I get “0% questions answered” and “0% questions correct” even though all the questions were answered and correct. This is something that needs to be fixed really soon if this app is supposed to help me for the test I’m supposed to take again soon. Other than that the only other things I can complain about are the recent paywall which is annoying (and which wouldn’t really seem like a great investment for $10 unless you’re THAT terrible at taking the test), but the content that seems to be locked probably doesn’t show up very much on the exam (at least in my state).

  • No Premium Access Jul 6, 2018

    By Faelandaea
    I am a premium member on the web site. I wanted this app to streamline my study for my CDL on my iPad. Unfortunately, there is no log in and no method at all to access premium content or get rid of those obnoxious ads. I am uninstalling and going back to the web version I guess. Devs ... there is no point in providing an app if not everyone on every level can access the content they paid for. At this point, this app is just a lure for folks to get them to the web for buying premium access. I’d love this app if it weren’t for you blocking me from premium and shoving full page ads in my face every few questions. 3 stars for design, but had to knock off two stars for blocking me out of the level of content I paid 40 bucks for.

  • Used to be great.... Jul 9, 2019

    By Godsgirl481
    Had this app about a year ago when I first went to go take my test. It had amazing tests, the information was accurate, and I could test whenever I wanted. I passed the test first try. Now, I have to retest because my learners expired before I could pass the driving portion. I redownloaded the app so that I could refresh my memory. Now, the app as premium exclusive content (conveniently, the stuff that helped me most before), ads, and a bunch of other new stuff that makes the app useless. I can’t just do the easy stuff to pass and the ads are distracting when you are trying to study. Why change the app when what you had before worked so well?? I am extremely disappointed now.

  • Very helpful with minor issues Feb 27, 2019

    By Tbaby616
    Paid the extra $9.99 to unlock all the tests available and it was definitely worth it. Provides extra questions that would show up on my tests at the BMV. Helped me pass my general knowledge so far which I was struggling heavily with. Although I’ve noticed here and there certain questions will say that you clicked the wrong answer, and if you read the explanation it gives you as to why it was wrong it turns out that the answer you picked was actually correct. So they just need to go through and look at which questions they falsely marked as the correct answer and this app will be perfect.

    By Slugtums
    I started using this app as recommended by a friend of mine. When I started using it, I was intrigued and I loved it. But as of today’s recent update I was shocked when I saw that all of my progress was gone. At first I thought, maybe it’s good that I get a refresher on all my skills, but now I can see that all this app cares about now is making money. How dare you guys put a price tag on lessons so valuable to driving? Does it not matter to you the skills of how someone will drive? Whatever the matter, I’m very disappointed with you guys for putting money over the education of driving.
