What you need to know
Getting your Nova Scotia learner’s licence, as part of the province’s Graduated Driver Licensing program, involves passing two tests, a signs test and a rules test. Each test has 20 questions, and you must answer 16 questions on each correctly to achieve 80% passing scores. The tests are based on the 2024 Nova Scotia Driver’s Handbook. When you are ready to get your learner’s licence, you will need proof of age, two other proofs of identification with your signature, and then signed parental consent if you are 16 or 17 years of age. If you pass the written and vision tests, you will then need to pay the licence fee of $25.10. This Nova Scotia learner’s licence practice test can help you become more comfortable with the subject matter, since the questions on it are based on the same information as the questions on the actual exam.
