How To Get A California Drivers License

In California, driver’s licenses are regulated by the California Department of Motor Vehicles. Anyone who operates a motor vehicle in the state of California must possess a license. Basic driver licenses in California are referred to as Class C Driver Licenses. To apply for a Class C driver’s license, candidates must present the proper documentation, including: a signed Driver License & ID Card Application, including agreeing to submit a chemical test the testing of alcohol or drugs, as well as documentation that identifies your true full name, birthdate, verifies California residency, and pay a non-refundable application fee.

For those residents who are under 18 years old, California offers Minor’s Permits. To obtain a minor’s permit, candidates must be at least 15 ½ years old, complete the driver license & ID Application form (also known as the DL 44/eDL 44 form) and have their parent or guardian sign the application form. Minor’s permits are not valid until candidates begin driver’s training. Those with a minors’ permit must practice with a licensed California driver who is a parent, guardian, driving instructor, spouse or an adult who is 25 years or older.

Those with a Minor’s Driver’s License must be 16 years old, have proof of driver’s education and driver training, have a valid California instruction permit and have signature from a parent or guardian that validates that the candidate has had 50 hours of supervised practice, including 10 hours of driving at night.
