The Knowledge Tests (DKT Tests ACT) are a necessary component in obtaining your learner licence for all vehicles.

There are practice tests available which can be accessed through the button below.

When you do the Test, you will have to answer 35 questions drawn from those 378 training questions.

All questions must be answered correctly for Alcohol and Drugs, Intersections, Seat Belts and Vulnerable Road Users.

Two questions are allowed to be answered incorrectly in each category of Car General and Driving General.

In total you are allowed a maximum of four incorrect answers.

Preparing for these tests does not have to be difficult. In fact, if you want to do your best without a lot of unnecessary struggle, you can use this site to help you.

By using this site to prepare in advance, you will not only have a chance to take practice tests but you can also benefit from getting the correct answers as well. Therefore, if you are weak in any section, you can cut down on time looking for the right answers.

These tests are also based specifically on the Australian Capital Territory Road Ready Rules Handbook.

  • Rules on Seat Belts and Child Restraints

  • Legal Penalties for Driving Under Intoxication and the legal limits

Q: What Questions Can I Expect On The ACT Test (DKT)?
If you want to know what types of questions to expect on these tests, you may want to start your search by reviewing the Australian Capital Territory Road Rules Handbook in that particular year. This handbook will provide you with a lot of valuable information on the different driver’s license classes and other things that may be on the ACT learners test. For instance, if you are taking the knowledge section of the ACT exam, you can expect to see 35 multiple-choice questions. Most of these questions considered to be common sense and will only require a general knowledge of driving in this area. There are other questions that are not so common, however, and will require specific knowledge to respond accurately. To pass this section of the exam, you need to answer at least 31 questions accurately.
