When I went to get my learner’s permit

Last summer, I really wanted to get my learner’s permit so I could start practicing driving. But taking tests of any kind has always felt hard to me. Even though I study and prepare, my test results don’t always show what I know.

For the permit test, I used the state online testing site—taking practice exams to prepare. Though I’d studied on and off throughout the year, I still failed my first few attempts at taking the actual test. The biggest struggle for me was knowing what to study, because the Department of Motor Vehicles has so many versions of the exam and you never know which test you’re going to get.

After many failed attempts, I began to worry that maybe I wouldn’t be able to pass.
