About This Second California DMV Practice Test
This additional California DMV Practice Test has 30 questions. When studying for your instruction permit or full driver license, we strongly recommend you to aim for a score of at least 28 correct answers (93%). It gives you some margin for errors on the real exam situation.
The purpose of this self-assessment test is to help you identify parts of your knowledge or experience that may need improvement or further studies of the Driver Handbook. It should also give you a pretty good idea of when you are ready for the real DMV examination and when you are ready to start driving.
If you aren’t ready, spend some time with your best friend: the California Driver Handbook. You should get a hard copy from your DMV office and download a version to your cell phone here. Reading the driver handbook will pay off.
Self-assessment Tests You Can Trust
There is a fair number of other websites offering practice tests. We recommend some you can trust: Complete Driver’s Permit Test at driversprep.com, California DMV Written Test Practice at licenseroute.com, and California DMV Permit and Driver License Tests at freedmvtest.org. These sites have verified questions and answers drawn from a very large database. Unlike many other sites, they also have a dedicated support that can help you with difficult topics.
Don’t bother to go after brain dumps of actual exam questions. Nowadays, each real DMV exam is drawn from a large bank of questions. It is unlikely that you will get exactly the same questions that somebody else got. Furthermore, taking shortcuts to pass the DMV exam won’t make you a good driver. You need knowledge.
Focus on the Right Questions
The California DMV test has several questions about specific California laws. You must know what the laws says about smoking with a minor in a vehicle and leaving a minor alone in a car. You can find these laws at the end of the Driver Handbook. Look for a chapter titled “Additional driving laws/rules”.
