Illinois Driver’s License Practice Test

If you have never been a licensed driver but plan to get a license in Illinois, you will have to pass a written exam. Going forward, you'll have to pass a written exam every eight years, unless you have no traffic violation convictions. The basic written exam will test your ability to:

  • Know traffic signs by shape, color and symbol.
  • Know signals and pavement markings.
  • Answer multiple-choice and true-or-false questions about Illinois traffic laws, safety rules, crash prevention and vehicle equipment.

The Rules of the Road provided by Illinois is a good study guide. You can also find practice questions in the Rules of the Road Review Course Workbook and on
