Traveling twenty miles in California can change everything around you, from the scenery to the weather, but it’s easier to do that traveling when you can drive, and that driving starts with studying the California Driver’s Handbook. California has the second-largest amount of roads in the entire United States, so being able to drive is often a rite of passage in many cities and necessary to get around. On this page, you’ll find the latest version of the state handbook, pulled directly from the California DMV, which you can easily read, browse, and search using the controls on the page. Once you’ve reviewed the handbook enough to get comfortable, you can start taking our California permit practice tests, and you’ll be getting your permit before you know it.
