California Driving Lesson Requirements

Driving Lesson Requirements

Show More

Teens Ages 15-18

If you are between 15 and 18 years old, the state of California requires you take at least six hours of in-car driving lessons with a licensed driving instructor at a DMV-approved program, such as DriversEd.com.

In addition, parents are required to supervise 50 hours of in-car training (Ten of which are done at night). Any professional driving lessons beyond the 6-hour requirement counts against those 50 hours.

Adults Ages 18 and Older

If you're over 18, we recommend professional driving lessons. Driver's education significantly reduces collisions and traffic violations among new drivers.**

Although California does not require adults over the age of 18 to enroll in driving lessons, you may still be eligible for insurance discounts and/or course credit for taking them. Plus, you'll learn everything you need to know to pass your DMV driving test.
