Here’s What Other Learners from Maine Are Saying:

"Love this site! Definitely learning more from here than the book."

Jimi Beatz, Lewiston, Maine

"This site is awesome. I read the book and did the practice questions but felt that I needed more. Doing the multiple choice practice test showed me my weak points, helped me study better and gave me the confidence I needed. Took the test today and passed."

Amars B., Portland, Maine

"I passed my written test!!! Yayyyyyyyyy!! Thanks so much, This website is amazing and really really helped me a lot. I had only 2 days to prepare. I practiced all the questions here along with the manual. The real exam was so easy and all the questions I got were exactly similar to this website. Thanks again!"

Sumayya A., Bangor, Maine

"This site, all the tests and the manual helped a lot. I passed the written section of my exam yesterday. The most valuable and difficult was the Fines and Limits test and the related section in the Manual. I even made a spreadsheet with all the consequences of DUI and memorized it. Without it I would not have passed. Highly recommend the tests to anyone who is taking the exam in Maine."

Galina D., South Portland, Maine

"Well I went 2 and a half weeks ago for my permit test I failed the test. I found this website and I went today and passed with a score of 98 how cool is that! I was so happy I wanted to share this with who ever triess this site, it’s a great site and thank you very much"
