California law requires teen drivers under the age of 18 who hold a learners permit to drive with an adult 25 years of age or older who has a valid California driver license in the passenger seat or a seat close enough where they can take control of the vehicle.
If you are over 17½ but under 18 years of age, you may get your California drivers permit without the drivers education certificate however, you will not be able to take the driving test until you turn 18. Once you pass your written test, you will be issued a provisional permit.
The California DMV requires beginning drivers between the ages of 15 ½ and 18 to complete an approved 30 hour drivers education course to become eligible to get a drivers permit. Once you have completed your OnlineDriversEd.com course, we will send your completion certificate to you by mail. You will then need to bring the completion certificate with you to your written permit test appointment at your local DMV office.
Your learners permit, also called a provisional permit, will allow you to practice driving with an adult 25 years of age or older who has a valid California driver’s license. He or she must sit close enough to take control of the vehicle if necessary.
You must have had your permit for at least 6 months before applying for your license.
