Michigan driver's examination

(From the 2018 Michigan driver handbook)
Number of tests: 12
Number of questions: 50
Passing score: 40
Directions: If you have never been licensed, you will be given a knowledge test to determine how well you know Michigan traffic laws and safe driving practices. Applicants age 18 or older will be given this test at the Secretary of State office when applying for a Temporary Instruction Permit. If you have a valid driver’s license from another state, the written knowledge and driving skills tests as well as the 30-day practice requirements may be waived. The Department of State will contact your previous home state to obtain your driving record, which then becomes part of your Michigan driving record.

There are 50 questions on the written test. You have to score 80% and above to pass. All questions are taken from the Michigan Drive License Manual. Please thoroughly study the manual before taking the test.
