When teens are first learning to drive, they are highly receptive to important messages about the dangers of unsafe driving and driving while intoxicated. That is why it is so important for parents to get involved at this initial stage to ensure proper and thorough education to help set ground rules and instill good driving habits, as their teen takes on the responsibility of operating a motor vehicle.
The online course is self-timed and students may start-and-stop the course as needed. Our software will track the student's progress so that when they log-out they can log in later and pick up exactly where they left off in the course.
The final exam consists of 40 multiple choice questions and may be taken as many times as necessary until the student has scored 85% (34 out of 40 questions correct) or better.
Once a student has completed the course, we will send them official DMV form DL400c. This form must be presented at DMV in order to apply for a learner's permit and before a student may enroll with a "behind-the-wheel" driving school to learn how to drive a car.

What Do You Need to Get a California Learner’s Permit?
You do have to wait until you turn 16 before you can apply to get a first time driver’s license in California, but if you’re 15½, you can apply for a learner’s permit and then move on to your provisional license.
If you’re ready to get started, there are a few things you’ll have to take to the California DMV.
The California DMV is also going to test your vision, and you’ll have to complete a written exam that covers traffic laws and road signs. If you pass these two tests, you’ll get your California learner’s permit. Now you’ll be able to practice driving as long as there is a licensed adult who is 25 years or older in the passenger seat.
You’ll also need to enroll in a driving school so that you can complete your behind-the-wheel training with an authorized driving instructor as required by the California DMV.
What Do You Need to Get a California Driver’s License?
After turning 16 and driving with your California learner’s permit for six months, you can now take the official DMV road test. There are still some requirements before you tackle this test, however.
A parent or guardian must be with you if you’re 16 when taking your road test. If you successfully pass the test, you’ll receive a temporary California license (good for sixty days) before your official photo license comes in the mail. Failure to pass the driving test means that you have to wait at least two weeks before retaking it.
California Intermediate License Restrictions
There are plenty of restrictions that come along with having a California learner’s permit or provisional license.
Remember that if you just have your learner’s permit, a legal guardian over the age of 21 with at least one year driving experience must be with you at all times. They should always in the front passenger seat, and unless they are your sibling, you can’t have passengers under the age of 21.
For the first 12 months with your license, you’re forbidden to drive between the hours of 11pm and 5am, if you’re under the age of 18. You also shouldn’t be carrying passengers who are 20-years-old or younger.
There are exceptions to these rules, however.

Minimum California Auto Insurance Coverage & Penalties
Now that you have your California driver’s license, you’re ready to hit the road. There are still a few things to keep in mind, though. Your vehicle must have liability insurance coverage. For person injury the minimum coverage is $15,000 and for property damage it’s $5,000. Being caught without appropriate coverage, you could get you up to $500 in fines. Get into an accident without coverage and you could have your license suspended altogether.
Cell Phone, Text Messaging, & Drunk Driving Laws in California
You should be aware of the penalties that come along with driving laws in California. For example, for your first California DUI conviction you could receive:
That’s just for your first conviction. More convictions mean more jail time, fines, and the possibility of having your California license revoked.
Since September 2008, the state has had a ban on texting while driving. Fines can ranges from $20 your first time to $50 each time after that. Any device must be hands-free.
