California DMV Test

These questions are current as of either 2004 or 2005 (I'm not sure which - either way they should still be pretty close to what you'd see on a real test). The only way I can get new questions is from visitors to this website. If you want to help keep this test updated, please e-mail me the questions and answers from your DMV written test, and I'll do my best to incorporate them into the interactive test.

NOTE: I am not the DMV. I am not affiliated with the DMV. This is just a practice test. I don't know anything about ID cards, hazmat tests, or anything else like that. If you need that kind of information, please go to the California DMV website.
