Number of Questions on Permit Practice Test No. 6
This permit practice test, and all other tests at california-dmv-practice-test.org, is designed to help you prepare for your California Driver’s License or Learner’s Permit.
The practice test has 30 questions, slightly less than the actual examination.
The new online MVProctor knowledge test has 40 questions for an original permit or driver’s license.
Should you already have a California License and be asked to take the license test for renewal after five years, the renewal test has 25 questions. If you are under 70, you will likely qualify to take this renewal test online.
Get the California Driver Handbook
A practice test is a great way to prepare for the examination at California DMV! It’s even better when you get free questions and answers, which you’ll find here. We offer free online practice tests and several knowledge articles to help you quickly get your permit or license.
Our practice tests cover all essential topics in the Driver Handbook and any driver’s ed class. But don’t skip the handbook and think that practice tests are enough.
Memorizing questions and answers may help you pass the official exam. Still, memorized answers can make you a poor driver since facts sometimes fail to stick in your memory in the long perspective.
Learning the rules of the road and California laws takes time, and the more time you give it, the better the knowledge will stick. So, get yourself a copy of the California Handbook and read it. Make sure you have the latest version since laws change almost every year.
The California Examination Process
The Driver’s License examinations include:
- Vision test (if you wear eyeglasses or contact lenses, bring them with you).
- Knowledge test.
- 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.
At CA DMV, you take the knowledge test on an automated test terminal with a touchscreen terminal. You can still get a paper test if you ask for it or have trouble using a computer.
Since 2022, you may also have the option to take the MVProctor knowledge test from home. MVProctor is a fully online, remotely proctored exam that replaces the written test you traditionally took at a DMV office.
