About This Second California DMV Practice Test

In 2023, the California DMV updated its tests, removing many old exam questions and modernizing the knowledge test.

This second California DMV Practice Test has 30 new questions from the latest Driver Handbook.

When studying for your instruction permit or full driver’s license, we strongly recommend you aim for a score of 100% on each practice test. It gives you a good margin when you attempt the actual exam.

A self-assessment test aims 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 good idea of when you are ready for the actual DMV examination and when you are ready to start driving.

If you aren’t ready, spend 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 handbook a couple of times will pay off.

Self-assessment Tests You Can Trust

Test statistics - Courtesy of:

There is a fair number of other websites offering practice tests. We recommend some you can trust: Complete Driver’s Permit Test at, California DMV Written Test Practice at, and California DMV Permit and Driver’s License Tests at These sites have verified questions and answers drawn from an extensive database. Unlike many other sites, they have dedicated support to help you with difficult topics.

Don’t bother to go after brain dumps of actual exam questions. Nowadays, the DMV draws questions from a large data bank. Each test is unique, and you will get different questions every time you take a test. 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 the rules 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 “Other Important Roadway Information.”
