About this test

6 min to complete
Available in EN, ES, RU

The only thing standing between you and cruising down the Pacific Coast Highway, heading out to Joshua Tree, or driving up to ski or snowboard in Big Bear, is getting your learner’s permit and then your driver’s license. Our fourth DMV practice test is here to help you gain even more confidence with questions like the ones you’ll face on the written permit test at the California DMV – 40 multiple-choice questions with information straight from the official California Driver Handbook. Like all our other permit practice tests, it requires no sign-in, no information from you of any kind, and is available 24/7. We provide the most effective set-up to practice for the test and learn at the same time, including an array of questions that shuffle each time you take the test, instant feedback, explanations when you answer a question incorrectly, and hints if needed. Under the test progress matrix on the side, you’ll also find a link to your Challenge Bank, where you can review the questions you’ve answered incorrectly at any time, allowing you to focus your future studying on your weakest areas. If you feel this test helps you, we’d love it if you could click one of the special links on the final screen to tweet about it or give us a ‘like.’ Feel free to return and take the test as often as you’d like and… Good luck!
