Practice Test for California Teen Permit

Before getting behind the wheel, teen drivers need to understand the basics of vehicle safety. The California DMV Permit Test evaluates your readiness to begin driving.

Although student drivers must log some time behind the wheel of a car while studying for their unrestricted licenses, the state of California requires teen drivers to first pass a written exam that tests their knowledge of basic highway laws and safety. Those seeking a California teen permit can study the state's driver's handbook in preparation for the test. Additional preparation will help as well. A CA permit practice test can help students evaluate their readiness for the state-issued exam.

A CA permit practice test will test your knowledge on a variety of traffic laws. These practice tests can be accessed multiple times, so you can take them as many times as necessary while you study to learn the rules of the road.

Why Take Practice Tests?

Everyone experiences some amount of test anxiety. When preparing to take an exam as important as your written test for the California driving permit, you want to arrive at the testing facility comfortable and confident. Practice tests are a great way to assess your knowledge of the material as well as to help you feel comfortable with the format of the test.

Many people who take the California teen permit test fail the first time. Often, this is because they failed to learn pertinent information covered by the test. California law limits the number of times a test can be retaken before additional fees are assessed. If you want to increase your chances of passing your written permit test the first time, take the practice test in order to evaluate your level of preparation before going to the state testing facility.

The DMV permit test for your state is created to evaluate your understanding of the laws of the road. Make sure you are prepared by reviewing the information in the state's driver's handbook and taking a few practice tests before your actual exam. In this way, you can improve your chances for success.
