I was given 35 questions, i think 25 of them were exactly from this site. This site is your source to passing!"Emmanuel Bawse, Portland, Oregon
"I took my test today (Passed). If you can pass all the tests on this site, you can pass the real thing! This helped me so much. All I did for 3 days (after school) was do these tests over, and over, and over...and during lunch hour and on the bus, I'd read the OR driving manual cover to cover for a week."Trinity Mikayla B., Salem, Oregon

"I just moved to Oregon from Virginia. I read through the book but I was feeling uneasy about taking the test and I happened to come across this website. I admit the first few times I didn't do too well with taking the test on this site. I knew the areas that I had trouble with so I went back to the book and re-read certain things. Came back to this site and passed. I waited a few days and went to DMV and passed the test. I got 93%!!! This site is very helpful!!!!"Renae J., Oregon

"I used this website (driving-tests.org) to study for my permit test and I failed the test the first day I took it but I made it to the last question #35 and I was only permitted to miss 7 before I fail, I got to the last question of the test and got it wrong so that caused me to fail. I got to go in the next day to retest so I studied on this website again through the night, next morning, up until the test and I passed the second time (next day) that I took the test! Thank You!"Samantha Breding, Oregon
"I paid for a cheat sheet from other DMV test website... studied for week and went to take test, failed. Lost my confidence to do it again until i knew its time to take again to keep my driving privilege. found this website, it was free. gave it a try and saw much more options to study. but best of all this has test simulation that really made me feel im taking real test. so i did that over and over, the confidence are huge. went in earliest morning and aced it, so i d highly recommend to anyone to study on this website!

"This website helped me pass my permit test with a 90%, took me 3 tries, anyways i found this website very successful and helping. I totally would recommend this website. "Mari Cruz, Oregon
"Words cannot describe the joy this site has given me. I tried and failed for 8 years eventually deciding to just give up at 25 years old. The thought of driving was overwhelming and stressful, I knew for myself I had to get my permit but I just had no confidence in passing. I studied and studied and still failed. My mother introduced me to this site and told me if I study all the tests and master them I'd pass. I took the test today and passed with five wrong! My dream of driving is now a reality, I recommend this site to anyone who has given up hope. You can pass, it just takes time and dedication."Isiah Harris, Oregon
