[prMac.com] Milton, Canada - Elegant eLearning today is pleased to introduce DMV Genius 1.0 FREE for iOS: Permit Practice Tests for Your State, their motor vehicles permit practice test app. This Education app provides a 20-question practice test for each of the 50 U.S. states, allowing users to prepare for their Driver's License Permit Test. DMV Genius helps individuals, who are applying for their first permit or moving to a new U.S. state, practice to take a Permit Test at the Department of Motor Vehicles.
DMV Genius contains one free 20-question permit practice test for each U.S. state and additional 40-question tests available as an upgrade through an in-app purchase. Each permit practice test was uniquely created for that particular state using that state's official Driver's Manual, and uses the same scoring and grading techniques as DMVs across the country. Because DMV Genius was created directly from the driving manual of each state, questions are similar to those on the actual tests.
When users launch DMV Genius, they are prompted to choose their state. Once a state has been selected, the user is taken to a screen where they may launch the included 20-question test. Users are provided with a detailed summary of all questions at the completion of the test. This summary includes the user's answers, correct answers, hints, and explanations. Users may also purchase 5 additional 40-question state-specific tests to increase the number of practice questions and improve their chances of passing the official test. Users may share their test scores with friends via integrated Facebook and Twitter connectivity.
Questions are arranged with multiple-choice answers. For each multiple choice question there is a hint and an immediate feedback explanation, if a user provides a wrong answer. When a question is answered incorrectly, a detailed explanation is provided explaining why the answer was incorrect, what the correct answer is, and any helpful hints that may apply. For example, for the NY Permit Practice Test, one question is: "When making a turn, the law requires you to signal a turn with your directional lights or hand signals at least: A. 50 feet ahead, B. 25 feet ahead, C. 75 feet ahead, D. 100 feet ahead." Tapping an incorrect response produces the following explanation, "Wrong! Here is why: The law requires you to signal a turn or lane change with your directional lights or hand signals at least 100 feet (30 m) ahead. A good safety tip is to signal your intention to turn before you actually begin braking to make the turn."

More than just a practice test for new drivers, DMV Genius is also a refresher course on state laws and best practices for experienced drivers. Since the app may be used over again, young drivers may benefit from reviewing questions during their first few years of driving, when developing good driving habits are the most important. Experienced drivers may also benefit from best driving practices reminders. Senior drivers may benefit from DMV Genius' driving regulations quizzes. Brushing up on the rules and regulations of the road can benefit all drivers.
"DMV Genius is your inside guide to each state's DMV," stated Elegant eLearning's Andrei Zakhareuski. "This is the easy and effective way for new drivers to prepare for the road."
