CONGRATULATIONS YOU PASSED!! You have your permit! You now have your permit. But what does this mean? You must have a VALID permit for a minimum of six months to be eligible for your drive test. How long is my permit good for? Can you drive by yourself to school or at night? Am I able to drive while family members or friends in the car? What happens if I loose my permit? All good questions so here is the break down on how this all works.  1st When you pay your application fee to take your written test (you have (3) three attempts to pass), the time starts to count down for you to get your license (you have (3) attempts to pass) and if you fail any test (3) three times you start the application process all over by paying your application fee and resubmitting your certificates (Driver Education/Training certificates do not expire) and retake a permit test again. You have one year from the day you pay the application fee or fail three times at the written or the driving test (whichever comes first) to complete the whole process up to getting your drivers license. For example: You went in for your written test (January 1, 2016) and paid the application fee, took the test and failed it. You must now wait at least a week before you can go back and take your second test. But lets say your life is hectic and busy with say sports and you can’t get back to the DMV till lets say 7 months (July 1, 2016) later and this time you pass.  Great but how long is your permit good for? In this example your permit is only good for 5 months. Why because, your application expires 1 year from the date you paid the application fee (January 1, 2015). What happens now is that you must go back (January 1, 2015 or later) and start the process over and get a new permit. It doesn’t mean that having your permit was a waste of time on the contrary you have had your permit for 5 months and are credited for that. So when you get your new permit you only have to have it for one month or more to become eligible for the drive test. NOTE; The old permit must accompany the new permit to show proof of the original permit date received. When you receive your permit and you are under 17 ½ years old you must first take a drivers training lesson with a qualified driving instructor to validate your permit by signing it. A parent, guardian, spouse or adult 25 years of age or older, who has a valid California driver license, must be with you when you drive. He or she must sit in a position close enough to take control of the vehicle, if necessary. It is illegal for you to drive alone at any time. 2nd What happens if you loose or your permit expires? It shouldn’t be a problem but you must have something to prove that you have had your permit from a specific date (when you originally received it). When you originally receive a permit you get: Your permit which consist of 3 half pages numbered at the bottom. Your receipt on a half page with the application fee paid. Some DMV offices are still printing out your photo page on a half page. You must keep the expired instruction permit with your new instruction permit until you pass your driving test. The new instruction permit and the expired permit is the only proof of credit that satisfies the six-month requirement. When a new application is started, DMV does not retain the previous application information. If you lose your expired instruction permit, without the necessary proof of a previous application, the full six-month waiting period will be required before you will be allowed to take your driving test. When you drive you only need the three half pages numbered 1-3 in your possession. Keep the other documents (your picture ID and receipt) for proof if you loose your permit. We average about 25 students who loose there permits each year who train with us.
