How can a teen get a learners permit and when can they drive?

At 15 ½ teens are eligible to receive a permit. A minor must complete a CA driver’s education course and pass the written test at the DMV. To validate a minor’s permit, they must complete one behind-the-wheel lesson and have their instructor sign the permit before driving with a parent or guardian. Once they complete the required 56 hours of driving and hold their permit for 6 months, they are eligible to take the driving test at the DMV.
