Getting a teen driver license in California
To reduce teen auto crashes and related death and injuries, the state of California adopted the Graduated Driver’s License (GDL) law in 1997.
Under this rule, new teen drivers must:
- Complete this online driver education course (which you’ll do. We guarantee it.)
- Practice DMV questions at the end of the course.
- Once you done with course, we’ll send you your Certificate of Driver Ed Completion (Form OL 237).
- Take Certificate of Driver Ed Completion Form OL237 and your birth certificate with you when you go to DMV to take your permit test.
- Bring the DMV Application Form DL 44, Behind-The-Wheel School’s Form OL 392 and our Certificate of Driver Ed Completion (Form OL 237) to the DMV. The DMV does not offer the form DL 44 online because it requires original signatures.
- Pass DMV written traffic law test (46 questions on the test. You need to answer 39 correctly.) You will have three chances to pass. If you fail, you can’t retake the test for seven days.
- DMV will also test your eyesight, so if you wear glasses or contacts make sure to bring it with you.
- Pay the DMV fee. This will cover three attempts to pass your DMV written and driving tests.
- Get your picture taken.
- Give a thumb print.
- You’ll also need to bring proof of birth evidenced by at least one of these documents:
- Your original or certified copy of your birth certificate, OR an acceptable document showing date of birth/legal presence. Some examples of these documents include the following:
- U.S. birth certificate
- Proof of Indian Blood Degree
- U.S. passport
- Official U.S. Armed Forces Identification Card
- Naturalization certificate
- Permanent Resident Card
- Passport from another country or Mexican Border Crossing Card (with a valid I-94 form)
- Proof of U.S. citizenship
- Adoption documents that contain your full legal name after adoption
- Name change documents that show your full legal name prior to and after the name change
- Marriage certificate
- A registration/declaration document or certificate that verifies a domestic partnership
- Certificate of dissolution of marriage or other document that proves this, which states your legal name after court action was taken
- Your Social Security Number (which will be verified with the Social Security Administration, so no shenanigans.)
Complete 50 hours of driving practice with an adult (25 years or older).
Hold a provisional learner’s permit for six months.
Pass the driver test at a DMV location and get your provisional license.
Age RequirementsDepending on your age you will need to take different steps to obtain your license.
California Driver HandbookTo read the handbook online, bookmark the California Driver Handbook.
Six hours of required driver’s training with licensed driving school, is a bare minimum that is required by law. A new teen driver is also required to practice driving for an additional 50 hours with a parent or guardian over the age of 25. Out of 50 hours that are required by California law, 10 hours of this driving practice must be at night.
CA DMV has published a Parent-Teen Training Guide filled with training suggestions, skill building exercises and self-testing.
Since your teen is required to have a learners permit for six months prior to taking their driver license test, they should have plenty of opportunities to practice. Think of this as an opportunity to have a personal driver for the next six months. Fair trade considering you were driving them for last 16 years.
To make sure that you and your teen driver are on the same page during this process, we’ve included a free Parent-Teen Agreement with our California Driver’s Education online course. This document gives you and your teen a list of rules and consequences associated with their new freedom. You can both sit down together and decide on what is fair for each of you, express your agreement to the terms by initialing/signing where indicated so that everyone will be held accountable for their actions.
Key to Success: Lead by Example
Teaching your kids to drive can be a fun but also stressful. The way you drive will definitely translate into your teen’s driving habits. Make sure you follow basic rule and practice defensive driving.
- Obey speed laws
- Be courteous to other drivers
- Explain Dangers of Drinking or using drugs
- Offer to get your kid without getting them in trouble if they ever need your help or find them in situation where they had a drink.
- Remember car crashes are one of the leading caused of young people death, and habits that you develop now will last a lifetime.
