If all that stands between you and seeing the California magic of a sunrise in Death Valley National Park or a moonrise in Sequoia National Park is the ability to drive to those somewhat out-of-the-way locations, then getting your learner’s permit is the first step towards getting your driver’s license. Our fifth DMV permit practice test features another 45 multiple-choice questions worded very similarly to those you’ll find on the actual written exam and based on information from the very latest version of the official 2024 California Driver Handbook. Unlike some other practice tests, we also help you learn at the same time by explaining when you answer a question incorrectly and by storing the incorrectly answered question in your personal Challenge Bank. You can find it under the progress matrix to the side of the screen so that you can review all your incorrect questions and direct your future study time. If you find this test helpful, please don’t forget to click one of the buttons on the final screen to recommend it, tweet about it, or share your score on Facebook. Practice makes perfect, so feel free to come back and retake the test as often as you want – it’s always free, and the questions will change and shuffle each time. Good luck!
