Did you hear the news? The New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission will no longer be giving you a written test. Well, not on paper anyway. You’ll still have to pass a so-called written exam before getting your learner’s permit but the test will now be given online. 

If you’re thinking wait, the knowledge test was already being administered on computer at MVC offices, you’re not wrong. But now teens in high school who had been taking their tests at school on paper will also be switched to all-digital web-based exams.

This got me wondering if after all these years of driving would I be able to ace a written test?

Would you?
