STEPS TOWARD GETTING A DRIVER'S LICENSE
How to Prepare for Your Written Permit Test
We recommend Drivers Ed Direct, an online Drivers Education course that prepares students to take their written permit test.
If you already have your permit, call us as soon as possible to schedule your driving lessons!
Obtain a Completion Certificate in Drivers Education from an educational institute or online course. We recommend Drivers Ed Direct.
Take the Drivers Ed Completion Certificate to the DMV, along with identification in order to take the written Permit Test. You must be at least 15 ½. (Check the DMV website for identification requirements.)
Enroll in a behind-the-wheel driving course with Bill's Defensive Driving School, a professional licensed driving school.
Take your first behind-the-wheel lesson with one of our professional, licensed instructors who will validate your permit so you can begin practicing with your parents.
After acquiring your permit, you must complete a minimum of 6 hours of behind-the-wheel driving lessons with our licensed instructor. Each lesson should be two to four weeks apart. This varies by individual student.
It is essential for parents to participate in and observe the behind-the-wheel drivers training. We STRONGLY RECOMMEND that at least one parent ride along on the first and third lessons with the student and the instructor. A minimum of fifty additional hours of driving must be completed with a licensed family member or friend over the age of 25. At least 10 hours must be at night.
After holding your permit a minimum of 6 months, if you have not committed any traffic violations nor been in a collision, you may apply for a Provisional License and take the driving test. Your permit allows you up to a year to take the driving test.
Go to dmv.ca.gov for more information about the Provisional License and the varying requirements for applying for a license over the age of 17 ½.
