BAL DRIVING SCHOOL, LLC is authorized by Department of Licensing to provide both the WA State Written and Drive test. In order to take a test with us, applicant must either visit a DOL office to provide the necessary documents and get the number or pre-apply online at http://www.dol.wa.gov/driverslicense/preapply.html.( if you newly moved to this state and never been issued WA ID or driver license before, you must pre-apply first. Bring that number when you come to take your test. You have to have that number in order for us to put your score into DOL date base. (hint : That will be first five letters of your last name, first letter of your first name, first letter of your middle name then some numbers and some alphabets.) 

​KNOWLEDGE / WRITTEN TEST: The knowledge test is used to ensure you understand road signs, traffic laws, and safe driving practices before you drive on the roadway. It is a multiple-choice test with 40 questions, and you must correctly answer 32 of them to pass the test. (Paper and pencil no computer).
