California Provisional Permit

What to know before you go to the DMV:

If you are between the ages of 15½ and 17½ you have the green light to earn your Learner's Permit in the state of California. But before you head to your local Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), you'll need to complete a driver education program first. The state of California requires at least 30 hours of driver education before you can take your in-person vision, traffic laws and road signs test.

We conveniently offer California Driver Education Online that fulfills your driver education program requirement and gives you the certificate of completion you need. The course is licensed by the California DMV and teaches you everything you'll need to know to prepare for and pass the California Learner's Permit Knowledge test. So, don't feel overwhelmed.
