"Yesterday, 03/17/2015, I took my first knowledge exam, after spending several hours and weeks of reviewing the pdf manual and several mva online test assessments. Unfortunately, I failed... I was confident that I would pass but came home and down hearted. Then, I stumbled on this God sent FREE online reviewer, then I re-scheduled the next day 03/18/2015. After taking all 5 sample tests and the almost 200 final exam, the result was so amazing I was able to answer all the questions without any doubt at all!

"I just passed my test today, this website is definitely helpful.... Just practice the questions and read the manual, and you woud be fine."Stella M, Maryland
"I've been using this site for about a year now to practice for my Learners test and I honestly didn't think I was ready because let's face it reading the handbook gets a little boring and doesn't exactly prepare you for what the questions on the test are gonna look like, so after awhile I got fed up and just searched up practice test in Maryland and I've loved this site ever since, it totally prepared me for the test I failed the first time because I was a little nervous but went back the next week and passed and had 16 minutes left! The questions are somewhat similar but not exactly but it still prepares you for the upcoming MVA test absolutely loved it !!!"Briette B, Maryland
"Absolutely helpful site. You should take tests online on this site. I got 24/25. its really of great help."Masroor Dhar, Maryland
"Today, I passed my law test, 98%, I recommend you to practice these Maryland Online Driver Tests. Thanks,"Omaira Gibens, Maryland
"This website is amazing, it helped me pass my permit test with only 2 questions wrong!!!!"Don Parker, Maryland
"Today I passed the knowledge test. This website is very helpful. Almost all of questions on the test were the same as questions on this website, just different in some words, but the main contents were the same. Thanks so much to the team who manages this website. I recommend this website to anyone who wants to pass a driving test."Pong Grubbs, Maryland
"My mother works at the MVA and tells me stories that people, especially those with work Visas, have a difficult time passing the tests. They will take the test 50 times and still fail. They read and read the handbook however only 5% of the questions are from the handbook. And if you ever been to the MVA, it is not an in and out task. If people are more prepared and educated by using this website as a FREE tool and resource then the lines at the MVA would make everyone happy. Do yourself the favor, practice these tests. Take a day online, at home, go over each test until you get 100% and stop wasting your time and everyone else's at the MVA because you are just going to FAIL if you do not use this website and resource given to you for FREE. "A. Dereck, Maryland
"I've been having to reschedule my permit test the past week, so I've been taking these practice tests each day of test and today I was finally able to get up to the mva and take the permit test and passed. I've been getting above 80% on the practice tests here and only got 3 wrong on the actual test, which passed me. I suggest using this site because some of the same questions were on the actual test. "Kaheem Dudley, Maryland
"It's mind blowing....awesome job getting this site to practice before the real test. "Tolulope Fabusuyi, Maryland
