California Permit Practice Test FAQs:
What score do I need to pass the California permit knowledge test?
You must pass the CA permit exam with a score of 80% or better.
Does this practice test include the same questions I’ll see on the DMV permit test?
Our California permit practice test is created using information straight out of the DMV driver’s handbook, which is specific to California traffic regulations. The questions on your practice test are the same as what you can expect to see on your DMV permit exam. The California DMV often switches up its exact questions from year to year, but the information you’re tested on doesn’t change.
How do I earn my California driver’s license?
To earn your California driver’s license, you must be at least 16 years old. All first-time drivers, regardless of age, must first acquire a learner’s permit to practice driving. If you’re under 18 years old, you must hold that permit for at least 6 months, as well as complete an approved driver education course and at least 50 hours of supervised driving practice. Once you have completed your permit requirements (based on your age), the last step is passing a behind-the-wheel road exam to earn your CA driver’s license.
