How Many Questions on this Practice Test?
This CA DMV practice test has 30 questions, which is a little less than the real DMV test, unless you are already licensed and need to take the knowledge test again (the re-examination test has 18 questions, half of the real test for adult drivers).
If you are under 18 years, the permit exam has 46 questions. If you are 18 or older, the written exam has 36 questions.
Driver License Examination in California
To get your California Driver License or Learner’s Permit, you need to pass:
- The vision test (if you wear eyeglasses or contact lenses, bring them with you).
- The written license test.
- A road test or “behind-the-wheel driving test”. You must make an appointment to take the road test. It is waived if you hold a License from out-of-state or a U.S. territory.
Remember, after paying the application fee, you can take the knowledge test 3 times. Should you fail your third attempt, you must start all over by handing in a new application and paying the fee again. So, it is a good idea to take as many practice tests as you can before you head down to your local DMV office.
Use both the Handbook and the Practice Tests
Feel free to take the practice test several times here or at Driver’s Prep. When users pass several practice tests with a score of 92% or more, it is rare for them to fail the real driver license test.
Don’t Just Memorize
Don’t just memorize the questions in the practice tests. Use test questions and answers to see what topics need your attention. In other words, try to fully understand the meaning of the questions and not just that “the question about passing a motorcycle” has option “B” as the correct answer.
