If you are one of those people who get bored sitting through exercises and lessons that drag for hours - this timed California practice permit test is for you! This online practice quiz is almost identical to the regular California permit practice test you probably took already, with one small, but crucial difference - it is timed to keep you on your toes!  You get twenty seconds to read and answer every question, no pauses,no taksies backsies and no do-overs! Good luck and mind the clock, it is ticking as you're reading this!

This online practice permit test contains only questions from the real 2019 California permit test and it has been built to match the same format used by the DMV.  The practice quiz contains twenty multiple choice questions on traffic rules, road signs, right of way, speed limits, parking and so much more (yes, we did fit all that into just 20 questions, we are that good).  We know, we know, the real test has 46 questions, not 20, we are well aware of that, but we want to keep things nice and simple and that is why this free California DMV practice permit test contains only twenty questions.  It still requires you get the same passing grade of 85% (that means answering no less than 17 questions correctly), but if are one of those people who just have to have the real thing, head over to our California permit test simulator right away and let everyone else enjoy their practice exam!

One of the major concerns for those preparing to take the permit test for the first time is finding the right study materials.  Let us tell you this:  there's really no better way to prepare than by reading the drivers manual and taking free practice tests.  The real permit test is based on the drivers handbook, there is really no question on the DMV test that cannot be answered by researching the manual, that is why you are always, ALWAYS recommended to read the handbook before you pay the DMV a visit.  Is it fun?  No.  Is it quick?  No.  But it does work! So read the book before you do anything else!

Speaking of fun - this is where this CA permit practice test comes in!  You don't have to treat it as a chore or just "another practice test you have to take because your mom told you to".  Treat it as a challenge - share it with friends on twitter or facebook and see who can get the highest score or be the fastest one to complete the exam!  Learning can and should be entertaining, so go out and have a ball!

Good luck at the DMV and please post back with your results! (We know you'll do awesome, but it never hurts to hear it anyway)
