The number of questions on the actual test varies, depending on which State you take it in. For example: The written test in California has 46 multiple-choice questions, whereas Florida's has 50 questions. The passing score also varies depending on the State. We chose 50 questions for this test, and a driver needs at least 40 correct answers to pass (that is, at least 80%).
