To get a Washington State driver license, applicants are required to pass a knowledge and driving test. Munros' Driving Instruction, Inc. is authorized to provide both the knowledge and driving tests. In order to test with us, applicants must either visit a Department of Licensing office to provide the necessary documents or pre-apply online at https://secure.dol.wa.gov/home/newDriver.aspx
Scores for the knowledge and driving test will be reported to the Department of Licensing electronically within 24 hours; although we try our hardest to report them immediately so you can go to the DOL afterwards. Passing the knowledge and driving test does not guarantee that an applicant will be issued a driver license. The DOL will determine if an applicant has met all licensing requirements; they reserve the right to re-test applicants. Re-testing is done at random and at no cost to the applicant.
The knowledge test consists of 40 multiple-choice questions about traffic safety laws. Applicants must answer at least 32 questions correctly in order to pass the test. The knowledge test will be offered at specific times at select locations. Take the practice test online at the DOL website: http://www.dol.wa.gov/driverslicense/practicetest.html.
The driving test will test the applicants ability to drive legally and safely. Applicants must pass the driving test with a score of 80 or better out of 100 possible points. For more information on what applicants will be evaluated on, please visit: http://www.dol.wa.gov/driverslicense/drivingtest.html. Occasionally, we train employees as examiners; you may be asked if you mind if they ride along - you have the right to refuse.
Applicants may provide their own vehicles or pay to use one of our vehicles to use for the driving test. Our cars are small to midsize sedans with automatic transmissions. If you are required to have an Interlock device, you must test in a vehicle with one. Applicants are encouraged to schedule a private drive lesson prior to testing if you have little or no experience with driving.
