California Permit Practice Test – No. 5

California Permit Practice Test – No. 5

We have designed the DMV permit practice tests at to help you prepare and keep track of your progress as you study the California Driver Handbook. Always make sure you have the latest version of the booklet. Even if California DMV doesn’t update the actual exam with all the latest laws, you should keep updated with the newest information for your safety on the road.

The more you know, the better driver you will be!

Don’t Skip the California Driver Handbook

It would help if you always got a clear understanding of what the California Driver Handbook contains. DMV draws all questions on your permit or driver’s license exam from this handbook. You should review the guide and identify topics you must study in detail.

Laws that control what you can and can’t do are essential, not only for your permit exam but to be a safe driver when you’ve got your permit and get behind the wheel.

Give it Time!

Commonly, teenagers fail their first attempt at the permit test. The reason is often poor study habits.

It is challenging to absorb everything in the handbook just a few days before the examination. It probably worked for your school tests at one point in life, but it will work for your learner’s permit.

If you are an experienced driver preparing for a renewal test, you should also read the handbook. Many things have changed since you took your driver’s license exam, and the California DMV has shifted focus on the test questions.

Give the handbook and our permit practice tests at least a week or two. Have it beside you when you take practice tests. Look up your mistakes and compare the information.

Permit Practice - Give it time!

Find Someone to Study with

If it is your first license and you try to study by yourself, you close the door to important feedback. Discussing road rules with a friend or a parent helps you learn faster. Ask questions like how and why instead of memorizing facts or exact answers. Simply trying to memorize the material is one of those poor study habits we all picked up from school, which could cause you to fail!

Don’t expect practice tests to give you exact questions or answers (even if you will see those too). Practice tests are a way to study and learn!

Motivate Yourself

You may find it boring to learn all the information in the handbook. Even impossible. Most of the time, you may want to do something else and put off studying for the exam.

However, you’ve read this far! It proves you want to do this!

Learning to drive includes knowing all the rules of the road. It’s an essential step towards your goal: a driving permit and a full driver’s license. And ultimately, a car. Feel excited. Print out your goal in big words and commit yourself on social media.

Then, stick with it.

Success requires some sacrifice, but believe us: once you have your permit, your sacrifice won’t seem that big of a deal. You will probably say it was all a piece of cake!
