What Happens if you Fail the Test?

When you apply for your learner’s permit, your $20 application fee includes two attempts to pass the written knowledge test. If you fail the written test, you will have to wait until the next business day to take it again. After your second failed attempted, you will have to pay a $20 testing fee for each subsequent attempt you make.In general, obtaining a learner’s permit is not a difficult process. Students who have studied the Washington Driver’s Handbook in its entirety rarely have any problem passing the test, and for extra assurance an excellent idea is take one or more of the free practice tests that are available online.
