The NSW Driver Knowledge Test — DKT

When you’re starting your journey towards becoming a licensed driver in New South Wales, the first step is passing the Driver Knowledge Test (DKT). This computer-based test assesses your understanding of road rules, safe driving practices, and road signs.

What is the DKT?

The DKT is a mandatory test for those seeking to obtain a learner licence in NSW. It comprises 45 multiple-choice questions, including 15 general knowledge questions and 30 road safety questions.

How to Prepare

Before attempting the DKT, it’s wise to take several practice tests. These mock exams simulate the actual question format, boosting your confidence and readiness, and are designed to familiarise you with the types of questions you will face on the actual exam, enabling you to identify areas where you may need further study.

The most effective way to prepare is by studying the Road User Handbook and the Learner Driver Log Book and taking practice tests. You can find material for DKT prep on our awesome info page.  The Driving Instructor can also help you prepare—we know the DKT inside and out and can guide you through the key sections of the Road Users’ Handbook, clarify any points of confusion, and provide you with valuable tips and strategies for test day.
