Driver’s Education designed with you in mind

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.

Course Syllabus

Course Duration

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.

Final Exam

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 You Need to Know About Vacaville California Licensing Procedures

Starting the process of applying for your Vacaville California learner's permit or first Vacaville California driver license can seem very daunting at first, so it helps to have as much information handy as possible. Vacaville California has a graduated driver license program for Vacaville California drivers ages 15 and a half to 18, and there are a number of things we want you to be aware of to make sure that applying for your Vacaville California driving license goes as smoothly as possible. So let's begin, shall we?

Types of Licenses

You should be made familiar with the three basic types of Vacaville California driver's licenses. They are: Vacaville California learner's permit, Vacaville California teen driver's license, and the regular Vacaville California driver's license. Here's a simple outline of the requirements and restrictions for each license type:


Vacaville California Learner's Permit

  • must be at least 15 and a half years of age, but under 18
  • must be accompanied by a person at least 25 years of age who also has a Vacaville California driver's license
  • cannot drive with passengers under 21 (except siblings)


Vacaville California Teen Driver's License

  • must be 18 or have had learner's permit at least 6 months
  • late night driving is restricted (see details below)
  • requires passing a road test
  • cannot transfer passengers under 21 until 1-year probationary period has passed


Vacaville California Driver's License

  • must be 18 or have had teen driver's license for one year
  • no further restrictions apply

Now that you've been introduced to the different types of licenses, here's what you need to know about applying for each one.

Vacaville California Learner Permit or Vacaville California Provisional License

Although you have to be at least 16 to apply for your first Vacaville California driver's license, when you're 15 and a half you can apply for a Vacaville California provisional license, otherwise known as a Vacaville California learner's permit.

So if you're 15 and a half or older, take the following to your local Vacaville California DMV.


At your local Vacaville California DMV, you'll have to pass a vision exam, as well as a traffic laws and sign test.  Once you pass the written exam and vision test, you'll receive your Vacaville California instructional driver license, or Vacaville California learner's permit. This license will enable you to practice driving providing you have someone 25 years or older in the seat next to you as you learn. However, the driver accompanying you must have a Vacaville California driver's license. You can find a few sample tests on the Vacaville California DMV website here.


Vacaville California Teen Driver's License

If you're 18 or have had your Vacaville California learner's permit for at least 6 months, you're ready to try for a Vacaville California teen driver's license! But before you do so, you must complete the following requirements:

  • Be able to provide proof of financial responsibility (more on this later).
  • Completed driver education
  • 6 hours of behind-the-wheel training with a professional driving instructor 
  • 50 hours of practice with an adult 25 or older (at least ten of these practice hours must have been done at night)
  • Have your Vacaville California learner's license for at least 6 months

Because you only get three chances to pass the road test, we strongly suggest getting as much driving practice as you can! Any 16-year-old applicants must be accompanied by a parent or guardian when taking the Vacaville California driver's license road test. After you pass your driving test, you'll receive an interim Vacaville California license (valid for 60 days) until your Vacaville California photo license comes in the mail. If you fail the Vacaville California driving test, you have to wait two weeks before taking it again.

Vacaville California Teen Driver License Restrictions and Penalties

There are several restrictions you need to be aware of regarding your Vacaville California learner's license or Vacaville California provisional drivers license.

If you only have your Vacaville California learner's permit, you must be supervised by a parent, legal guardian, or person over 25 who has at least one year of driving experience. The person who is supervising you must sit in the front passenger seat. In addition, you cannot drive with passengers under 21 (except brothers or sisters).

If you have a teen driver's license but are under 18, you are not permitted to drive a vehicle between 11AM and 5AM for the first twelve months unless have a parent, legal guardian with you. Also, you cannot transfer passengers under 21 until your 1 year probationary period has passed.

Exceptions to this restriction are made in the following cases:

  • You have a medical necessity
  • You are participating in a school activity
  • You have an employment necessity
  • You must transport a family member
  • You are an emancipated minor.

If you have further questions, go to the teen page on the Vacaville California DMV website.

Vacaville California Auto Insurance Vacaville California Financial Responsibility Laws

Once you receive your Vacaville California drivers license, you're almost ready to drive. What else is need? Auto insurance, of course. Any vehicle registered in Vacaville California must be covered by liability insurance. The minimum coverage is $15,000 for personal injury and $30,000 for 2 or more persons, and $5,000 for property damage. If you are found to be driving without Vacaville California mandatory liability insurance, you could face a fine of up to $500 plus court costs. If you are involved in an accident and cannot provide proof of insurance, your Vacaville California learner's permit or Vacaville California provisional license may be suspended.

Vacaville California Drunk Driving, Cell Phone, and Text Messaging Laws

As a new Vacaville California driver, it's important that you learn and take seriously the Vacaville California drunk driving, cell phone, and text messaging laws. Upon your first Vacaville California DUI offense, you face:

  • Imprisonment of 96 hours to 6 months
  • A fine of $390 to $1000
  • Your license will also be suspended for 6 months
  • Also, you will have to complete a Driving Under the Influence Program
  • And may be ordered to install an Ignition Interlock Device.

Further Vacaville California DUI convictions will result in increased jail time, community service, fines, and Vacaville California license suspension or even Vacaville California license revocation. As a young driver, now is the time to learn good habits, and one of the most important of these is DON'T EVER DRIVE DRUNK!

Studies show a strong link between text messaging and traffic accidents. Therefore, as of September 2008 the Vacaville California Legislature passed a ban on text messaging while driving. Driving while texting carries a fine of $20 for a first offense and $50 for each additional offense. No points will be issued on your Vacaville California drivers license. Drivers under 18 are also prohibited from using a cell phone or wireless device from driving. All drivers must use a hands free device for their cell phone while driving in Vacaville California.

As stated above, any 16-year-old applicants who would like to apply for a Vacaville California driver license must have completed at least 50 driving hours (signed by a parent, legal guardian, or certified driving instructor) and at least 6 hours of an approved Vacaville California online driver education course.
