Here’s What Other Learners from Tennessee are Saying:

"This actually works. I took the TN DMV Test simulator, just kept taking it over and over and I only studied one night. I went today to take my real test, passed it in 4 minutes and only missed 4 questions. I was so happy. So for all who gets on this website it's the real deal, the questions are literally the same thing! Good luck and always remember never give up!"

Logan Mize, Antioch, Tennessee

"88% Proud of myself, yes these questions are on the test!"

Angela S., Nashville, Tennessee

"I love this website! It is extremely helpful and knowledgeable of hundreds of driving questions. I passed my permit test with only two wrong answers! Thank you Diving-Tests.Org for everything you do. I am going to tell my sister to study from this site too. Nothing except SUCCESS!"

Nicole D., Memphis, Tennessee

"I was nervous about the knowledge test and this site helped me gain loads of confidence. I only got two wrong because I was nervous. It helped me to remember the road signs and rules of the road. I just got home from my test and got my license. I highly recommend practicing on this sight, especially with the exam mode."

Aubrey B., Columbia, Tennessee

"I took my permit today and I only missed one question (barely) on the test! This website helped me immensely! The questions from the practice tests were very similar to the ones on the actual test. The test was sooooo easy and I think all my studying + using this website definitely paid off."

Olivia S., Knoxville, TN

"I would definitely recommend the exam mode, it perfectly represents the questions on the actual test. I passed only missing one, which was the same one I missed on here."

Kyle W., Chattanooga, TN

"This website is amazing. I read through the handbook one time and took practice tests up until this day and I passed. I am so excited. This is such an amazing feeling to pass my permit test the first time. I would recommend this website to anyone preparing to get their learner's permit."

Lakeisha J., Clarksville, TN

"I was so nervous to take my permit test but after practicing on this site I had nothing to worry about. The test was so easy I passed the first time but all thanks to this site. I recommend this to anyone !! :)"

Ameshia Forrest, TN

"I don’t really like reading, so when I was told I would have to read the driver’s handbook, I was really not in a good mood. Then, I decided to look up online tests. And this site came up on the search. I failed the first few tests but then eventually I passed them. Then, the night before I went to the DMV, I took one last test. When I was taking the test at the DMV, I realized it’s the same as this site’s and I attained a 40/40. I recommend this site to everyone."

Fati J, Tennessee

"I must say this website helped me pass the test with flying colors. :-) 40 Question and only got 3 wrong, not bad at all :-) Kudos!"

Ziggy D, Tennessee

"Amazing website! It helped me tremendously! Studied all the questions for a few hours and passed with a 93%! Love you guys."

Jawad Siddiqi, Tennessee

"I was absolutely terrified about getting my permit - I put it off so late I now have to wait a month after my birthday to get my license. Honestly, this site was amazing. I took every test offered until I scored in the 90s, but aiming for 100. I went in, and once I began to take it, several questions were almost verbatim from this site, and it was so easy! Easier than the ones on the site, in my opinion. Only missed 2, one about points and one that two answers could work in reality but only one worked for them. I drove home after we got out of town (about a 30 minute drive) and I uploaded a picture to Facebook. And I got it on Pi Day too! Thank you! Without you, I wouldn't have passed!"

Desirae Clark, Tennessee

"I just took the permit test and passed with a 100, ya baby this website helped a lot."

Jeffery Walker, Tennessee

"This site is amazing, I took my test yesterday and passed with no problem. Thank you to whom ever made this site!!!"

Detwone Sparks, Tennessee

"Your site is just great! I took and passed all of your theoretical tests on your site a few times (with 100%) and passed the real test without making any mistake for 6 minutes!!! Frankly, I have not read the test book at all. Your site is very helpful for passing the real test!"

Fred Ford, Tennessee

"I read the manual for 3 weeks. Then I repeatedly answered and studied all the practice tests here online for 1 week. March 10,2014, I took the exam and passed with a score of 28/30. Most of my test questions were about Alcohol and DUI fines. Thank you Lord and for this site for all the help."

CMarriett Reyes, Nashville, TN

"Helpful! The questions were exactly like the real permit test. Yesterday I took all 5 tests and I took the test today and I did it! Thank you Driving-Tests.org"
