4th California Practice Test – 30 Permit Questions
Like previous California DMV permit practice tests on this website, the 4th collection of permit questions from the DMV driving test guides you through 30 essential areas in the Driver Handbook.
We have designed the practice test to help you prepare and keep track of your progress as you study the booklet.
More Challenging Permit Tests
With practice tests that are slightly more challenging, you can improve your test-taking endurance. You may also learn how to pace yourself and read everything more carefully.
When applicants fail their first attempt, they usually do so because they rush through the test too quickly. One simple mistake at the beginning of the test can make you feel like you want to give up.
To succeed, you must break through the discouragement and carry on. You should know most of the answers if you have studied the handbook and scored 90% or more on the practice tests. One mistake isn’t the end of it, and not even two mistakes. Remind yourself of your strengths and try to visualize the result, your learner’s permit or full driver’s license.
A visualization of what you want to accomplish will keep you moving forward.
Why Practice Tests Help
Don’t look for the exact questions or answers that may appear on your test. Even if you can see such questions and answers in these tests, you should read everything critically. Ask yourself questions like how and why. Discuss rules, laws, and safe driving with others. It will improve your learning.
Research shows that practice is very effective when you want to learn for life, rather than just the immediate permit exam.
Use the practice tests wisely.
Permit questions and explanations give you feedback on how you are doing and how close you are to reaching your goal. Make sure you read the little feedback snippets after each question.
If you need help understanding a question, go back to the driver handbook or find an experienced driver to ask.
