STEPS TO GETTING YOUR CALIFORNIA LICENSE (15.5 – 17.5 years old)

*Note: If you turn 17.5 after getting your permit, the licensing requirements for those who are 15.5 – 17.5 years old no longer apply to you. You can simply meet the licensing requirements for those who are 17.5 – 18 years old. The biggest difference between the two age groups is that you don’t need to complete the behind-the-wheel driving hours if you are 17.5 – 18 years old. Instead, you can practice driving and take your driving test as soon as you turn 18 years old.

Step 1: Take Aceable’s California Drivers Ed

Complete our state-approved 30 hour course on your iOS device, Android device, or the web. Aceable’s course has pictures, videos, memes, voiceovers, text, and pop-up questions – we like to mix it up and keep it interesting. We’ll mail you a Certificate of Completion of Driver Education once you’re done with the course.

Step 2: Get Your California Permit

Head to the DMV to ace your written test and get your permit! You’ll need to get at least 38 out of 46 questions correct, and you have three chances to pass the test. If you fail, you must wait seven days before taking the test again.

You’ll also need to provide a fingerprint and signature, pass a vision exam, and take a picture.

Make an appointment because the DMV doesn’t take walk-ins! You can also make an appointment by using the DMV Now app or calling 1-800-777-0133.

Step 3: Do Behind-the-Wheel with California Drivers Ed
  1. Take your first two-hour lesson with a professional instructor, who will sign your permit. You can’t legally drive until you have your first behind-the-wheel lesson with a professional instructor.
  2. After your first two-hour lesson with a professional instructor, you can start on the 50 hours of behind-the-wheel instruction (10 of which must be done at night) with a parent, guardian, spouse, or adult who is 25 years old or older and has a valid California driver license. The state of California doesn’t have any restrictions on what hours of the day you can drive, but you should master most driving skills in daylight first.
  3. You’ll need to complete two more 2-hour lessons with a professional instructor (that’s six hours total of professional instruction) before you can get your license.

Parents no longer need to keep logs for the 50 hours of behind-the-wheel practice. Instead, parents now sign the second page of the student’s permit (underneath the signature of the first behind-the-wheel driving instructor) stating that the 50 hours of practice have been completed.

If you want, you can complete all or a portion of the 50 hours with a professional instructor.

Don’t forget, you aren’t allowed to drive alone just yet, and you should always have your provisional permit with you!

Step 4: Get Your California License

Within 6-12 months of getting your permit, after completing all of the behind-the-wheel driving instruction, and when you’re at least 16 years old, head to the DMV to take the driving test and get your license!

Make an appointment because the DMV doesn’t take walk-ins! You can also make an appointment by using the DMV Now app or calling 1-800-777-0133. Please note that the DMV can book up very quickly, especially during high-volume seasons like the summer and during spring break. You should schedule your driving test as far in advance as possible.

If you fail your driving test, you must wait two weeks before you can take it again. You have three chances to pass.

When you pass, the DMV will issue you an interim license that’s valid for 90 days. Your new photo driver license will arrive in the mail. Until then, always have your interim license with you when you drive.

In the meantime, you can’t transport passengers who are under the age of 20, and you can’t drive between 11pm and 5am. After you turn 18, these restrictions don’t apply.

STEPS TO GETTING YOUR CALIFORNIA LICENSE (17.5 – 18 years old)
Optional: Take Aceable’s California Drivers Ed

If you’re older than 17.5 but younger than 18, you aren’t required to present driver education and driver training certificates to get your permit and license. However, you’ll still be required to take the written permit test at the DMV, and Aceable is a great way to study for this.  Let us help you ace the test on the first try!

Our state-approved 30 hour course can be completed on your iOS device, Android device, or the web. The course has pictures, videos, memes, voiceovers, text, and pop-up questions – we like to mix it up and keep it interesting. The course also never expires, so you don’t have to worry about deadlines and can move at a pace that works best for you.

TESTS IN THE CALIFORNIA DRIVERS ED COURSE
California Drivers Ed Level Assessments

There are 10 levels in the course. At the end of each of the levels is a level assessment consisting of 10 questions. The questions will be a mix of multiple-choice and true/false questions. You must score at least 70% or better (at least 7 out of 10 questions correct) in order to pass and go on to the next level.

If you fail a level assessment, you can take it again. There is no limit on how many times you can take a level assessment and you don’t have to pay again to take a level assessment more than once.

California Drivers Ed Final Exam

There will be a final exam at the very end of the course. It will have 50 questions, and you must scores at least 70% or better (at least 35 out of 50 questions correct) in order to pass and receive a Certificate of Completion from Aceable.

YOUR CALIFORNIA DRIVERS ED CERTIFICATE
California Drivers Ed Certificate Shipping Options

Your Certificate of Completion will be mailed to you when you finish the 30-hour course (10 levels). Unfortunately, we aren’t allowed to email or fax certificates, and students can’t come into the Aceable office to pick up certificates. We are required to mail out original hard copy certificates using a third-party delivery service, such as the US Postal Service and FedEx.

The course comes with free standard shipping via the US Postal Service (USPS), and certificates sent out using this option should arrive within 5-12 business days. Certificates are sent out of our Concord, CA office, so the closer you are to that area the faster you’ll receive your certificate.

If you want to upgrade to an expedited shipping option, you can purchase that option on the web or app once you reach the very end of the course. Here are the prices:

TYPE CARRIER DELIVERY TIME COST

All certificate orders placed after these times will be processed the following business day, excluding national holidays observed by USPS.

The day that we ship out your certificate does not count as a business day. For example, if we mailed your certificate out on Monday and you requested 2nd Day Shipping, your certificate will arrive by Wednesday.

AB 60 PERMIT & LICENSE
What is AB 60?

Beginning on January 1, 2015, the state of California started making permits and licenses available to all California residents, regardless of their immigration status. California residents without a social security number or proof of legal presence can apply for an AB 60 Permit or Driver License, which comes with the same privileges as a Basic Class C Driver License.

Instead of providing a social security number and proof of legal presence, applicants for an AB 60 Permit or Driver License must provide satisfactory proof of identity (California ID, Mexican Passport, Guatemala Passport, etc.) and California residency (lease, utility bill, school record, etc.).

Applicants for an AB 60 Permit or Driver License must also submit all other required paperwork and documents to the DMV.*

*If you’re applying for a permit, click here to see the other documents you need to bring to the DMV.

*If you’re applying for a license, click here to see the other documents you need to bring to the DMV.

Like an applicant for a Basic Class C Driver License, an applicant for an AB 60 Driver License also needs to present a DL 44 (Driver License Application) at the DMV. To have a DL 44 mailed to you, call DMV’s Automated Telephone Service at 1-800-777-0133 (available 24 hours a day, 7 days per week). You can also visit your local DMV office to pick one up.

  • If you were previously issued a social security number, enter it on the DL 44 form.
  • If you were never issued a social security number, check the box on the application indicating this.
  • Don’t use a false social security number or one that wasn’t issued to you by the Social Security Administration.
  • Do not complete the voter registration form if you aren’t a U.S. citizen.

State Recognition of AB 60 Permits & Licenses

All AB 60 Permits and Licenses are recognized as valid by the state of California. Every AB 60 Permit and License will have a visible distinguishing feature on the front that reads “Federal Limits Apply.” On the back, it will note “Not Acceptable for Official Federal Purposes.”

Please note that the law prohibits the state, local officials or agents, and any program that receives state funds from discriminating against you because you hold or present an AB 60 Permit or License. Your AB 60 Permit or License should be accepted by state and local law enforcement the same way as any other state-issued license or ID card.

Secondary Review

Secondary Review occurs when the DMV needs to further investigate your documents or your record. It’s designed to ensure that all eligible Californians are able to obtain a permit or license, regardless of their immigration status.

Your application for an AB 60 Permit or License will be on hold and you can’t take your driving test until you complete the Secondary Review process. However, you should be able to take your written test. The DMV employee should explain why you’re being referred to Secondary Review.

Reasons you may be referred to Secondary Review include:

  • You previously submitted an invalid SSN or there was a mismatch with a previous DMV record
  • The identity documents you provided aren’t on the list of approved documents and must be further verified by the DMV
  • Any of the documents you’ve provided are perceived as potentially fraudulent
  • You’ve received a ticket from law enforcement in the past while driving (whether or not you gave your true name).

You can access the Secondary Review Application here. To schedule a Secondary Review appointment, call 855-421-1001. Wait times may vary, depending on call volume. You’ll receive an appointment confirmation letter by mail.

You’ll have another opportunity to prove your identity and California residency using a wider variety of documents, and you’ll be required to attend an extra appointment with a DMV at a different office than the field office you originally visited. Secondary Review is conducted by staff members of the DMV’s Investigations Division, who will review your identity and residency documents. Your interview make take up to one hour.

The Secondary Review process can take anywhere from two weeks to three months- it all depends on volume and the region you’re applying in.

You can email general questions about the Secondary Review process to: driverslicense@caimmigrant.org

JUNIOR PERMIT/LICENSE

If you are over 14 and under 18, you may apply for a Junior Permit (also known as a Junior License) if one of the following circumstances exists:

  • If a family member who usually drives you is ill and taking a bus (or other transportation) isn’t an option. You’ll need your application signed by your family member’s doctor, stating what the illness is and approximately when the family member is likely to recover and be able to drive again.
  • If getting to school and school activities via bus or other means is inadequate. You’ll need your school principal to sign your application, verifying the facts. You will only be able to drive from your home to school and back.
  • If you work and getting to and from work via bus is inadequate, AND your income is essential in the support of your family. Your employer will have to sign your application and verify the distance between your home and work, and the distance from your employment to public transportation.
  • If you work for your family in a family business enterprise and it’s essential that you drive, then you’ll need your parents to write and sign a statement saying this on your application.

It’s not easy getting approval from the DMV for a Junior Permit/License, as they will want you to explain why carpools, taxis, bicycles, or walking won’t work for you.

Within six months of being issued a Junior Permit, you will also have to show that you have completed your drivers education (online with Aceable) and your behind-the-wheel driver’s training (the six hours of professional instruction) or your Junior Permit will be cancelled.

Your Junior Permit will be valid for six months, or until it’s no longer necessary for you to drive a vehicle. If you move to another address, your Junior Permit may no longer be valid, so check on this. If you’ve violated any of the provisions, then your Junior Permit will be cancelled or revoked.

The application for a Junior Permit (Form DL 120) can be filled out online and printed before you take it in person to a DMV office. Click here for the application.

OUT-OF-STATE PERMITS AND LICENSES
Out-of-State Permit

As a minor with a permit from another state, you’ll need to meet all California permit application requirements. It means you’ll have to:

  • Be at least 15.5 years old but younger than 18 years old
  • Complete the DL 44 (Driver License Application) and have your parents sign it
  • Pass the written knowledge test on Traffic Laws and Signs at the DMV
  • Present your social security number, as well as a document verifying your birthdate and legal presence
  • Pay the $34 application fee
  • Present a DL 33 Form (To Secondary Schools Other Than California Schools). You can get the DL 33 at your local DMV or by calling 1-800-777-0133. Send the DL 33 to your out-of-state drivers ed school and ask them to complete and return it to you.

Back to top

Out-of-State License

As a minor with a driver license from another state, you’ll need to present your out-of-state driver license to the DMV and pass a knowledge exam as part of the application process. The behind-the-wheel test is usually waived for a person with an out-of-state driver license, but the DMV may require a behind-the-wheel driving test for any type of driver license application.

As a minor, you will also be subject to provisional restrictions per California law. For example, licensed teens in California can’t transport passengers under the age of 20 and can’t drive between 11pm and 5am. After you turn 18, these restrictions don’t apply.
