California Driver's License Manual

In order to apply for your Driver's License you must first pass a written test. The driver's manual is the book that provides the information you need to know in order to pass your written test and to get your driver's permit. It is important to read the manual because Section 2 and 3 have pertinent information necessary to pass this test.

Information Covered in the Manual

The manual provides information regarding different types of licenses, state traffic laws, road signs, safe driving information and regulations - all of which will help you drive safely and successfully. For example:

  • You must pull over and stop at the side of the road for any emergency vehicle with its lights or sirens on
  • Signs in yellow with black lettering and symbols are usually warning signs

Sections of the Manual

There are several chapters within each part of the manual. The 3 major sections include:
  1. Information about licenses and owning a vehicle
  2. Traffic laws and regulations
  3. Safe driving suggestions
You can download a copy of the Driver's Manual for more detailed information.

Where to Get a Hard Copy of the Manual

Please see the Driver's Manual Here for an online copy of the manual and practice quizzes for each chapter OR the manual is available to purchase at any DMV office.


As well as reading the manual, It is important to review all information regarding acquiring a Commercial Driver's License (CDL). Please use the following links to gain more knowledge about the licensing process.

The link to acquire a Drivers Manual, is for New York, not California. Thus it is a useless link for this website.


what to study for the driving test?

is it better if you practice with someone first, or see how someone drives and ask questions about what to see or about what to do when you're driving...,

Or just read the manual, that would specified everything that you should do when you're driving....
