Started preparing for the California permit test and feeling a bit overwhelmed? You are not the only one! Reading the official drivers manual helps a lot and it is a great way to make the  first step towards obtaining a drivers license, but boy, is there a lot of information in that book? Licensing procedures, laws and penalties, DUI, all those rules and signs can make your head spin, especially if you don't know what to study yet. Fortunately, you've come to the right place! Our free 2019 California practice permit test has 20 questions on road rules and traffic signs to get you on the roll!

These twenty multiple choice questions are meant to give you the first taste of California traffic laws, they were not meant to cover everything you need to know for the DMV permit test, yet taking this practice test will immediately show you where you stand in terms of being prepared for the exam.  If you score 80% or over on the test without any help (hey, no cheating!) - move on to the next one, this exam is too easy for you!  However, if you are having any difficulties or feel like you have to turn to hints too often - take the test at least couple of times until you have these questions fully covered!  Remember, this is just a practice permit test, not the real one, there is no shame in repeating it!

All questions on this California permit practice test are multiple choice, only one of the answers is correct.  When you are not sure what the right answer is, you can either view a hint that will give you more details on the question, or hit the 50/50 button and have two incorrect answers removed from the test to make the job easier.  The practice test will also show you a detailed explanation to every question you miss.  It's all right to use these options on this California permit test cheat sheet, but remember, you won't be able to use them at the DMV, so make sure to pay attention and read an explanation for each and every practice test question you get wrong!  Better yet, write them all down and research the manual for detailed answers, after all, the real permit test is based on that book and you should read it at least once before you visit the DMV!

We take great care in selecting permit test questions for this free California practice permit test, we constantly review and update all of our questions to make sure the practice test is good for the 2019 California DMV permit test.  If you are worried that the permit test at your local DMV is different from the one somewhere else - stop right there.  The permit test is exactly the same all across California, from Los Angeles to  San Diego and from San Jose to San Francisco.  Sure, questions may change from time to time, since the DMV does not want you simply memorizing DMV written test answers, they want you to learn the rules of the road.  The test, though, remains essentially the same and if you do well on practice permit tests and read the drivers handbook, you will do just fine on your visit to the DMV!
