The Knowledge Exam is also offered at the Motor Vehicle Commission in Springfield for those students who do not earn at least an 80%. Passing the Knowledge Exam is the first step in the process of getting the Student Learner s Permit. The next step is enrolling in a state approved Driving School for driving lessons.

(16 year old students must enroll in a driving school to get their permit, 17 year old students do not need to enroll with a driving school, it is optional) Once the student completes the lessons, the Driving School will give the student their permit.
