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.

When a vehicle makes a turn, the rear wheels follow a shorter path than the front wheels. The longer the vehicle, the bigger the difference between the paths of the front and rear wheels. Therefore, long trucks often have to swing wide to complete a right turn.

When approaching a roundabout, slow down. A roundabout is designed to be driven at a low speed.

36 . If you pass a school bus that is stopped with its red lights flashing, you will:
