This California DMV practice test (2|3|4) was recently updated for September 2021. It includes the most vital road signs and rules questions taken directly from the official California Driver Handbook for 2021. Use genuine questions that are very similar (often identical!) to the DMV driving permit test and driver's license exam to prepare for the DMV driving permit test and driver's license exam.

To help you recall the topics, each practice test question includes a hint and explanation. The written component of the official DMV test will consist of questions about regulations of the road, traffic signs, and driving statutes, as well as information from the Driver Handbook.

To get the required 83 percent passing score, you must correctly answer 38 out of 46 questions (or 30 out of 36 if you are over 18). Use this DMV practice exam to help you prepare for your California instruction permit or driver's license.

The DMV exam is available in various languages, but you must begin the test by 4:30 p.m. to ensure that you have enough time to complete it. The California Driver Handbook outlines the state's strict rules for awarding instruction permits to minors.

Using any form of testing help during the test will result in an automatic failure, and the DMV may take further action against your driving permit, so please don't cheat.

If you want to enter the freeway but do not see a space for your vehicle in traffic, slow down on the ramp to wait for a gap. Do not drive to the end of the ramp and wait for a gap or you will not have enough room to accelerate to the speed of traffic before entering the roadway.

20 . When driving on a multilane street with two-way traffic:

Driving directly alongside another vehicle could create a collision if the other driver crowds your lane or tries to change lanes without looking. To avoid this, you should drive ahead of or behind vehicles in other lanes rather than alongside them.

You may not know what is on the other side of a hill or just around a curve, even if you have driven the road many times. If a vehicle is stalled just out of sight on the roadway, you must be able to stop. Whenever you come to a hill or curve, adjust your speed so you can stop if necessary.

22 . Should you always drive more slowly than other traffic?

You must drive more slowly than usual when there is heavy traffic or bad weather. However, if you block the normal and reasonable movement of traffic by driving too slowly, you may be cited.

23 . Temporary signs used in construction and maintenance work areas:

All temporary signs in work zones have orange backgrounds with black writing and/or symbols.

24 . Which of the following statements is true?

Driving too slowly can be dangerous because it may cause drivers behind you to become frustrated and make dangerous moves to pass you. It is safest to drive with the flow of traffic, within the legal speed limit.
