California DMV Knowledge Test – 8

You should prepare well for your California DMV knowledge exam. The first-time failure rate in California is above 40%, meaning almost one applicant out of 2 failed the CA knowledge test the first time.

Get the California Driver Handbook online or from your DMV office. Make sure you read it.

Use practice tests to verify your progress.

Each of our practice tests has 30 questions. It is less than the actual exam unless you must pass a re-examination. The new online MVProctor knowledge test has 40 questions for an original permit or driver’s license. The renewal test has 25 questions.

The Best Study Tips: Don’t Cram for the exam

Remember, you build up knowledge over time. It is the same thing with confidence.

Don’t try to digest the driver handbook in just a few days or think practice tests are the magic answer to passing the knowledge exam.

To pass the knowledge test and become the best driver you can be, you need real insight and knowledge of California traffic laws.

The right attitude and mindset may be the best way to get there eventually. The difficulty of the California DMV exam is relative to the amount of time and effort you invest in studying. The more you know and understand safe driving and traffic laws, the easier the test will seem.

There are no trick questions on the test. Just be sure to read everything carefully.

  1. These tests help us to study hard so we can pass and learn. What can be done to make the drivers still follow these Q&A after they leave the DMV?

    • Thank you. In the past years the number of people running red lights and stop signs, running a left arrow when it turns red… (I’ve seen seven cars run a red arrow), speeding, street racing, vehicles passing in left turn and right turn lanes

      making a left or right turn from the middle lane, every time I am out on the road I see too many dangerous violations, what I never see is anyone ticketing them.
      I drove down 259th street in Harbor city last week, three parked vehicles didn’t have a rear license plate. On Anaheim street, I’ve several times seen a row of parked vehicles damaged, probably street racing.
      Seeing people playing with their cell phones, reading while driving.
      Two days ago nearly hit a big construction type truck that ran the red light to turn wide in front of me, the guy paused in the left turn lane, then turned left against the red arrow, cutting off people driving down Western Avenue…

      And here I am, reviewing new regs and new signs.
      Being a good citizen.
