- Top 5 Most Asked Online Drivers Education Questions

    Technically, there is no age limit specified as to when a teen can begin their drivers education in California. However, the legal earliest age you can earn a DMV learner's permit in CA is 15 ½ years old, so we feel it makes sense to start your drivers ed sometime between the ages of 15 and 15 ½. That way you will have ample time to truly learn the drivers education material packed in our online course and fully understand the CA DMV drivers handbook.

    Yes! Not only does our Online Drivers Ed course fulfill CA Department of Motor Vehicles requirements for the issuance of DMV Form DL-400C for Completion of Drivers Education, our online drivers ed course is APPROVED by the California DMV. That means you are not merely getting a state 'accepted' course, but rather a drivers ed course that meets all rigorous California DMV drivers ed criteria. After completing our internet course, you will be issued the DMV completion certificate DL-400C, which the DMV will ask for when you apply for your CA learner's permit (for minors).

    We do not put time restraints on our drivers ed programs. A time restraint would make you spend a specified amount of time on a section before allowing you to move on. Our program is completely self-paced. This means that if it takes you a little longer to read the material and answer questions, then you can take your time. If you are a very fast reader, then your skills will not be restricted. We do recommend taking your time and absorbing all the driving instruction material. This will make the testing process much easier and smoother for you.

    Currently, our CA drivers ed course only costs $39.00. That includes all taxes, free 1-business day certificate processing, DMV Form DL-400C (for minors) and all shipping & handling costs. It's the best online course at a very affordable price!

    If you are younger than 17 ½, we will mail you a drivers education completion certificate. You will take this completion certificate with you to your local DMV so you can take the written test needed to earn a learner's permit.

    SCHEDULING YOUR PERMIT TEST: We strongly encourage you to schedule your permit test appointment at the DMV well in advance as you may find it difficult to find an appointment on your desired test date. DMV appointments often book up 2-3 months in advance.
