California DMV Practice Test Overview

This CA DMV practice test includes questions about traffic signs, driving laws, pedestrian and motorcycle safety, parking, alcohol use, cell phone use, speed and carpooling. The quizzes are designed to help you focus on pertinent driving laws related to safety and operation of your vehicle. If you aren't sure of the answer to the question, you can refer to the California driving manual or you can make your best guess. You'll be presented with a reference to the California regulation that the question is taken from. If you miss the answer to a question or you need clarification, you can refer to the manual for more information. You can also navigate backward in the quiz and change your answers if you want to.

In order to pass these quizzes, you must score correctly on 80 percent of the questions. This is the same as what you'll experience when you go to take your California drivers license test. If you take the quiz and don't get 80 percent on your first try, you can keep trying. The DMV practice test is randomized and you'll get some new questions each time. These quizzes are designed to help you pass the CA drivers license exam by offering realistic questions similar to what you'll see on your actual test when you go into the DMV office.

Other CA Drivers License Tests You Might Need

In addition to the written California drivers license test, you may need to take some additional tests in order to obtain your driver's license. These tests include a vision exam, a hearing test and a road test for maneuverability. To prepare for your visit to the California DMV, you might want to try a practice road signs and signals test. You can also refer to the current driving manual for California. This manual contains everything you need to know about the rules, regulations and laws for drivers in the state. All of the questions on the California drivers license test are taken from information that's available within the manual.
