This test is designed for students of the Central Mass. Safety Council Auto School (CMSC), located in West Boylston, Auburn, Devens, Milford, and Northborough and serving several high schools in central Massachusetts. The Massachusetts leaner's permit test is a computer-generated, multiple-choice test lasting a maximum of 25 minutes. Students must answer at least 18 out of 25 questions correctly to pass the test. That would be 72%, or no more than 7 wrong. The best way to study for the test is to read and study the Driver's Manual, which is available at RMV branches and online portals.
