What you need to know
If you wish to get your driver’s licence in Nova Scotia, you will need to start by getting your learner’s licence as part of the Graduated Driver Licencing program. In order to get your learner’s licence, you will need to take two written tests, which are 20-question tests with one based on rules and the other based on signs. You will need to answer at least 16 questions correctly on each test to pass, achieving an 80% score. In addition to the written tests, you will also need to pass a vision test. When you go to the testing site, you will need to bring proof of age, two other forms of identification, and signed parental consent if you are 16 or 17. In addition to paying the knowledge test fee, you will need to pay the licence fee of $25.10 if you pass the written and vision tests. This Nova Scotia practice test can help you pass the rules and signs tests on the first attempt because it is based on the same information from the 2024 Nova Scotia Driver’s Handbook as the real test.
