Driver's Education Guide for Santa Barbara Teenagers

Ready to earn your drivers license? For most teens, the process starts around the age of 15 by taking a Simple drivers ed program. When a teenager in Santa Barbara turns 15½, they are legally old enough to earn a learning permit. After earning their permit, teens must take a minimum of 6 hours drivers training with a Department of Motor Vehicles licensed driving school in Southern California. In addition, teens must practice 50+ hours with their parents over a 6+ month period. When a teen turns 16 years old and had fulfilled all of their drivers ed and drivers training requirements, they can then schedule an appointment at the Santa Barbara DMV to take their license test. After taking the driver's license test (which is taken in-car), a passing student will go home with a temporary driver's license that same day.
