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.

25 . Continuous hard braking on ice and snow often:

Continuous hard braking on snow and ice can result in the locking of the front brake, causing a loss of steering. To avoid the need for excessive braking, make sure to maintain an appropriate speed for conditions.

26 . Work zone barriers, drums, cones, and signs are used to:

Work zones on highways have become increasingly dangerous places for both workers and drivers. When approaching a work zone, watch for materials such as cones, barrels, signs, large vehicles, and workers in brightly colored vests to warn you and direct you.

27 . Increase your following distance when driving behind a large vehicle:

Drivers of trucks, buses, vans, and any vehicles pulling campers or trailers may not be able to see you if you are driving directly behind them. Increase your following distance when driving behind one of these vehicles. Additionally, large vehicles can block your view of the road, so increase your following distance to look around the sides of the vehicle and see the road ahead.

28 . Roads are slippery after it first starts to rain. When the road is slippery, you should:

A wet, slippery road does not allow your tires the traction they need, so it is necessary to drive more slowly on a wet road than you would on a dry road. To reduce the risk of skidding, you should avoid fast turns or stops.

29 . To avoid hydroplaning while driving in rainy conditions, you should:

When driving too quickly in wet conditions, your tires may lose all contact with the road surface. Loss of traction will cause the vehicle to ride on top of the water, which is called "hydroplaning." The best way to prevent this from happening is to drive more slowly in rainy or wet conditions than you would when driving during ideal weather conditions.

30 . To enter a gap in highway traffic:

Whenever you want to change lanes or enter traffic, you must be sure that there are no vehicles in your way in the lane you want to enter. Always check for traffic to the side of and behind your vehicle before you change lanes.
