  • Pay the DMV application fee, this fee pays for both your permit and your driver’s license.

Do you have to have your parents with you to get a permit?

Q. Do my parents need to come with me to get a driver’s license or an instruction permit? A.If you are under the age of 16, yes (one parent or guardian). If you are over 16, no, unless you have not had your parent certify your SO hours of driving time.

How much does it cost to take the California permit test?

You need to take a 46-question written test. To pass the exam, you need to get 38 correct answers at least. Once you pass the exam, you’ll need to pay a $35 application fee, which covers your provisional learner’s permit and driver license.
