See Why Washington State Has the Toughest Driving Test in the U.S.
If you have a valid Washington State Drivers licence congratulations, because it's the hardest to get in the nation. Here's why:
A law firm by the name of Siegfried & Jensen gathered license and test information from each state’s Official Driver Handbook, and asked an expert to assign each element an overall score.
Washington State came up as the most difficult state to obtain a licence for several reasons: the handbooks, the number of questions on each test, and how many maneuvers were required in the skills portion.
And THAT'S not mentioning the cost! Washington state now charges $85 for a drivers licence -- the highest price in the nation (ouch)!
