Steps to get your Driver License - Minors

  

  Step 1 Complete the Driver's Education Course

 

  • Students must be at least 15½ years old and under 18 years old.

  • If you are over 17 ½ years old and under 18 years old, you may get your permit without a California driver education and driver training certificate; however, you will not be allowed to take the driving test until you turn 18 years old.

  • Register and complete our fun and easy to follow Online Driver’s Education course. Our program (course) is approved by the DMV.

  • You can start our Online Driver’s Education course by visiting our website, and you can take the education course at your own pace and return where you left off at anytime.

  • After completing the required course we will provide you with a Certificate of Completion DL400C for you to show DMV.

Step 2 DMV Driver License Application 

 

​Make an appointment with your local DMV office for the written permit test. What you need for this DMV appointment:

Once we have activated your permit, you can start practicing with your parents. Students are also required to complete the entire course within six (6) months from the first day attended.
