DMV Checklist for Written Test

(To get your permit)

 

ages 15-1/2 to 17-1/2:

Be prepared to fill out the Driver's License Application (DL 44) when you get to the DMV or click here to fill it out online. Since you are a minor, both of your parents must sign it. An appointment is not necessary for the written test but I highly recommend an appointment so that your wait is not too long.  Visit www.dmv.ca.gov or call 1-800-777-0133 to schedule your appointment.

What you will need to bring to DMV to take your written test:

  • Filled out Driver’s License Application (DL 44)

  • Pink Driver’s Ed Certificate of Completion (DL 400C)

  • Birth certificate/passport

  • Social security card/number

  • Proof of address

  • About $36 for the DMV. (DMV does not take credit cards)

  • When you arrive at the DMV go to the START HERE window which will be identified by a sign
