How to Pass the NT Learner's Test the First Time
The NT learner’s test is a prerequisite to getting a drivers licence in NT, Australia.
If you’re looking to drive a vehicle in NT, passing both written and practical driving exams are a must. If time and money are of the essence, then it’s imperative that you pass these official exams quickly and in just one go.
Here’s how to pass the NT learner’s test the first time.
How to Pass the NT Theory Test
In order to prepare for the exam you will need to obtain and read the NT Road Users Handbook.
The Northern Territory written driving exam is computer-based and will have 30 multiple choice questions, all of which are taken from the road user’s handbook. To pass, you will need to get 26 out of 30 items correct.
The key to passing the written exam is to prepare yourself as much as possible. If you don’t want to pay the theory test fee over again you will need to pass the driving test on the first try.
For this, you will need to understand and take heart the material that’s found in the NT driver’s handbook.
How to Take the NT Driver Test
To take the official exam you will need to submit a license application form, fully filled out at the nearest MVR office along with proof of residency and ID. Pay a fee and you will be given a chance to take the written exam.
Practice, Practice Practice
One of the best ways to pass the NT learners test is to practice using an online practice test website.
The questions you get from a practice test will be the same as the official exam. Over time, you can familiarize yourself with most of the questions and can answer with confidence.
Better yet, you can take these practice exams as much as you like and get immediate feedback to what questions you got right and the ones that you didn’t get.
It’s recommended that you open your NT Road Users Handbook and read through the material from cover to cover. If you have a friend or family member who’s already driving, ask them to give you a short tour so you can get a glimpse of the rules and traffic in action.
When you feel you’re confident to take the test, go online and do it. If you pass, take one or two more as the questions may vary. Don’t be discouraged when you fail- just go back to reading the handbook and try again.
Keep in mind that the NT learner’s test will select 30 questions in random from a pool of 300+ questions, so the practice test you took may not be the exact one you get during the real exam.
Passing the Driver’s Written Test on the First Try
Take the practice test a few more times so you can get most, if not all the pool of questions in the database.
Arrive at the testing location in good time and get enough rest the day before. Wait for the results and you can proceed to the next phase- the driving exam.
