This is it. The very first stage of the licensing process. The test you need to pass to qualify for your Learners Licence.
The Driver Knowledge Test is a road rules test and the first of several before you can get to the full licence. It’s a computer-based test with 45 multiple-choice questions. The test takes approximately 30-45 minutes to complete.
If you don’t pass this test, you won’t be allowed onto the roads. The test is required whether you’re planning to drive a car or truck or ride a motorbike.
Each DKT test is based on a random selection of questions pulled from a much larger pool. The general pool of questions (of which there are close to over 600 possible questions) revolves around:
Therefore, you must learn quite a bit in each of the areas as you never know which questions will be asked on the exam.
Given the long list of question categories for the DKT, you would think it’s a difficult test to pass. And for many people, it is. But, to overcome this issue, most would-be learner drivers practice the DKT online.
You can download and review your state’s driver/road users’ handbook. But, reading alone won’t prepare you for the types of questions and how they are asked. So, after reviewing the handbook, start using the practice questions online. These questions are designed to be similar to the real test.
We’ve even found that practising the questions online makes it easier to review the handbook. That’s because the online platform is a gamified version of the handbook that teaches you as you go.
DKT practice tests that are designed like the real test makes a big difference in passing or failing the test. So, get practicing and we’ll see you on the road.
Understanding the rules of the road is the first step to getting your learners licence. And the way you’re tested on your readiness to obtain a learner’s permit? By passing the Driver Knowledge Test/Learners Theory Test/ Computerised Theory Test (CTT) on the road rules.
The states may label it differently, but it’s basically a test of your knowledge of the road rules governing your state.
The DKT test is based on the Drive Safe Handbook/State Road Rules Handbook. But, there are also online quizzes like the ones we offer that help you to prepare with a more hands-on approach.
So, to pass the DKT we recommend that you practice driver knowledge test questions online. You would be joining thousands of users who practice their DKT online before sitting the actual test.
The Learners Theory Test must be taken in person at a transport or service centre, motor registry, etc. in your state. You’ll need to book in advance (and early) if you want your preferred date/time to sit the test.
Most states allow you to book the Driver Knowledge Test online (like here at the DKT NSW website). You’re required to make payment at the time of booking. The test is then done at the service centre that you selected when you booked online.
You’ll have to wait a few days before you can retake the test. For example, if you fail the driver knowledge test NSW, you have to wait at least 7 days before you can make another attempt. But, you can try as many times as you need until you pass. The problem though is that you have to pay each time you sit the test.
How to avoid this issue? Practice the DKT test questions before doing the exam.
Yes, you’ve aced the Driver Knowledge Test and you’re ready to take on the road.Now that you’ve attempted and passed the DKT, you can then immediately apply for your learner’s permit.
The DKT test and learner's permit are just the first steps in getting a licence. Moving up the ranking means getting to the:
So, next on your agenda should be preparing for the next stage of the licensing process – getting your P1 licence. But, before upgrading to the P1, you’ll need to have held a learner’s licence for anywhere between 6 months and over 12 months depending on your age.
Your learner's permit is generally valid for around 2 years. After this, you’ll either need to reapply or upgrade your licence during the period. In addition to holding the learner licence for the minimum number of months, you also need to show the required number of hours of supervised driving.
So, start logging the required day and night-time hours so that you meet all the requirements when you go to upgrade to a P1 licence. (Some states like Victoria have moved away from the physical logbook to an app. Check that out before you start logging your driving hours.)
To get to the P1, you also need to sit and pass the driving test/ practical driving assessment. Just remember that if you use an automatic vehicle for the test, you’ll only be authorised to drive automatic vehicles if you pass. You can always upgrade your licence through another driving assessment using a standard type vehicle.
From here, it’s on to the Hazard Perception Test to move up to P2 and on to a full licence. The process runs smoothly if you don’t have any suspensions are penalties against your licence. So, it all starts with the DKT and using our driver knowledge test questions online.
The official DKT has 45 questions split into 2 parts. The first part is 15 general knowledge questions, and the second is 30 road safety questions. Sounds easy right? But, these 45 questions are drawn from a pool of over 600 questions. And you must get at least 12 correct in the first part and 29 of 30 correct in the road safety section to pass the DKT. So, the more you practice, the easier it will be to book, take, and pass the NSW DKT and get your Aussie Learner's Licence.
