About this test

5 min to complete
Available in EN, ES, RU
You’re one of the most experienced drivers on the road. But the rules have changed. Fines. Speed limits. Regulations. Insurance rules. You’ll need to know the ins and outs of all of those for your renewal exam. This Exam Simulator is designed to help you prepare for the official Senior Citizens' Renewal Exam at California DMV. It's the closest experience you'll get to taking the exam. You'll get a new set of 25 questions every time you restart it. We recommend you take it at least three times, but please feel free to take it as many times as you need to confidently conquer the real test. To simulate the DMV experience, this Exam Simulator offers no hints, no explanations, and it will shut off if you miss 4 questions (just like the test screens at the DMV).

What to expect from your official exam at the DMV

  1. You'll get 25 questions. You're allowed to make 4 mistakes maximum.
  2. If you fail the written test, you are required to wait 7 days before attempting it again. Your application fee allows you 3 chances to pass the knowledge test. If you fail 3 times, you’ll have to reapply entirely.
  3. You will take the test on a touchscreen computer at one of the DMV’s Touchscreen Terminals (TSTs). You'll select your preferred language, log in using the same thumbprint that you used to begin the driver license process, and begin the multiple choice test. The TST system does not require computer skills and there is no mouse. The “print” size can be enlarged to make the knowledge test easier to read.
  4. The official exam is available in several languages, large print English, an audio version, or a video version for those who use American Sign Language.
  5. Every question on the test is taken from the California Driver Handbook. Take your time and read each question carefully. There is only 1 correct answer. The other 2 answers will be either obviously wrong or close to being correct; however, not the most accurate.
