Quick Prep, Test & Car (in our vehicle) $250 $125

We know the entire test better than anyone because we're certified by PennDOT to perform the same license test they administer at the local DMVs. This 30-minute session includes a DDA coach on test day and our car's use to warm up, review parallel parking, and calm things down right before your test. Local DMVs sometimes experience four or 5-month delays, but DDA can schedule our car, coach, and your test in just a few days so you can pass and get that PA license ASAP. Transportation to and from our Newtown Square facility is required.

Our teen programs are ideal for students who have a valid PA permit and would like to test with DDA at the end of their driving lessons instead of testing at the local DMV.

Take a Free Practice PA Permit Test If you haven't been to the DMV to get your learner's permit, or you've been there a few times and had difficulty passing the computer knowledge test--it's okay. DDA is here to help!!! Just click on the PA Driver's Manual (to the left), and you can take a 25 question practice permit test, which is very similar to the PA test. If you feel you need more practice questions, just Google "free PA permit test," and you can keep trying practice questions until you're ready to pass the real thing--GOOD LUCK!!!!
