I have, it was easy after studying

Well that was actually pretty easy, just get something like an app to help you before you take it, you'll be fine

I started drivers ed after I got my permit and the thing that really helped me prepare was online quizzes!

I took my written test when I was 14 YO for my motorcycles license. I didn't prepare for it and failed it the first time but I went back the next day and passed. It's just a test, nothing to stress about.

I took my permit test almost exactly when I turned fifteen and a half. The test was easy as long as you knew your information. I did it on a computer at the center. Like I said, its easy if you read/know all the information.

Yes, I have! If you think you will pass the test without studying, then you are strongly mistaking

I have had a great experience with learning the rules of driving. It takes a lot more to driving than just steering a wheel and pressing the gas and brake.

i failed the test the first time i took it, and i asked my administrator why. He asked how i was studying and i told him that i found free practice tests online and that i had been doing those everyday. He then told me very simply "Well there's your reason." Apparently those tests were not certified and i had been studying the wrong material the whole time. He told me to simply read over my state's drivers manual before i came back to take the test the next day, and i passed with flying colors.

when I took my test I failed it three times, mostly because I am a very bad test taker and freak myself out. I would advise taking at least three deep breathes to calm down. Also know what stresses you out when you take a test and try your hardest to avoid your stress level getting up.
