California DMV Written Test Overview

California residents 15 ½ or older may apply for their driver’s permit to begin learning how to drive. In order to get your learner’s permit, you’ll need to take the California DMV written test, which will have 46 questions and you’ll be required to answer 38 correctly to pass. To get a permit, you’ll pay a $33 fee and must take a standard vision test at your local DMV, in addition to the written knowledge test. Those under 17 ½ will also be required to provide proof they are enrolled or have completed a driver’s education program. The DMV written test will be based on the information provided in the 2024 California Driver Handbook and will be multiple-choice and offered on a touchscreen computer. The fee for your written exam is good for 12 months and covers the cost of taking the test up to three times if need be. Use this DMV practice test to make sure you pass the first time!
