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.

Every 0.02 percent increase in blood alcohol concentration nearly doubles a driver's risk of being in a fatal crash.

28 . This sign tells a driver that:

This sign tells a driver that:
This sign warns that there is a flag person ahead. Always follow directions given by a flagger. Flaggers normally wear orange or yellow vests, yellow-green shirts, or bright jackets. They use paddles and red flags to direct traffic through the work zone and to let workers or construction vehicles cross the road.

29 . You are driving on the freeway. The vehicle in front of you is a large truck. You should drive:

When you follow so closely behind a truck that you cannot see the truck driver’s side view mirrors, the trucker cannot see you and has no way of knowing you are there. Tailgating a truck, or any vehicle, is dangerous because you take away your own cushion of safety if the vehicle in front of you stops quickly.

30 . When should drivers yield the right-of-way to pedestrians in a crosswalk?

Bring your vehicle to a complete stop at a crosswalk to yield the right-of-way to any vehicle or pedestrian already in the intersection. You may carefully proceed if your lane is completely clear.
