I'm going for my permit soon and I'm a but anxious and scared. Are the questions on the practice test also on the real test?

Yes they are. It's really not that bad, I am sure you will do well. The road signs section is the easiest for sure. As long as you study and take some notes, you'll be fine. Some people just read over it, but I can't do that. haha I had to read and take notes to make sure I absorbed it.

As others have said, yes they are on the test. It's really not that hard. Pretty common sense questions. I believe I got one wrong when I took mine 12 years ago.

How old are you? 
I'm only asking because (at least here in Illinois) if you're over the age of 18 you don't need a permit. You can go straight to the dmv, take the written test, then the driving test, and get your license right then. That's what I did.

The written part is the permit... Its really easy I only took it once. I live in Pa too. My mom took it 7 times. Not sure why she failed so many times lol. As others have said it is a lot of common sense questions. Some are a little tricky but that us where your common sense comes in. Lol. Good luck

In Pennsylvania you are required to get a permit to get behind the wheels to learn to drive. However, if you are over 18, there is no waiting period between getting your permit then going in for a driver's test whereas minors are required to wait a certain amount of time before they are allowed to take their driver's test.
