Careful not all question are on the real test.
After scoring perfect scores on the practice test multiple times I was confident. But the real test has different questions and worded different so make sure to have other study materials. Other than that it’s a good app.

Still no way to apply/pay for CAV Decal…
7 years later and I still have to mail the CAV Decal application and a check! I haven’t written or sent a check in years. Wake up DMV! Not to mention the fact that I have to wait 30 days for the new EV lease registration and license to arrive before I can apply for the new decal and then another 30 days to receive that, so I can’t drive my new EV in HOV lanes for about 2 months. It’s frustrating. This process is archaic. They need to offer a temporary decal. The DMV has been in need of a serious overhaul for years (maybe privatized). They have no vision or understanding of what’s needed or how to keep up with the current times. And that “CA DMV Wallet” app is a joke. I’ve been waiting for them to offer the iOS Wallet CDL like other states for ever. Another failure. Gavin Newsom - do something.

App works well, very functional!
I’m not sure if the app has improved or the one star ratings were actually just end user issues. I have an iPhone 7 with the latest updates and the app opens, practice test options are available for all of the licenses. I tried the Class C practice exam 1x without issue, before recommending the app to my daughter. I found the app to be a very useful tool as did my daughter.

I took all 25 test and I passed my permit test! I credit it all to this app. I read the DMV booklet but it was really boring and hard to retain the information. So instead I stopped reading the book and instead started taking the test and I passed the permit test! Thank you for creating this free app! I appreciate it a lot!!! 💗😊

HORRIBLE!! Clearly an app created by the Government
Entered all information to change an address and in the “Show me how” link it doesn’t let you return to continue. No way to close the “show me how” pop-up and you must exit the transaction in order to proceed, which deletes all your information/progress and you must start from scratch. Way to go DMV! Going to use the web browser version instead to avoid headaches (who knows if that will work...)

Very accurate
I had taken my permit test today and I had seen atleast 15 questions I hadn’t seen in the coarse of 6 months of studying and I was very disappointed. The apps I had used were dmv genie and some other app. So so so dissatisfied with there app

Helpful, but outdated
I’ve taken my dmv written test, last week and the questions are completely different compared to the ones on the test. However, both the dmv site and dmv app needs to be updated to be more accurate.

Driving Written Test: Okay
It would be great if they could put every single question to answer in the practice test instead of always repeating the stuff you’ve answered around the end of it.

Use the web site
Took several tries before it would take me to the registration page. When I finally got information added and added to cart it would not take me to the cart. Tried again and it told me it was already in cart but no way to get to cart. Garbage app. Use web site and avoid frustration.

Just read the Handbook
I took the written test today and none of the practice questions on the app are on the test. I mean at all this app is trash. It’s outdated and 2 years behind in knowledge. Just read the book at least 2 times and you’ll be good. If I hadn’t read the book I would’ve failed. Good luck on your test.

What’s the point of this app?
All the functions are web based and take you the DMV’s website regardless. Seems pointless. A nice feature would be to integrate renewals (ie driver license, registration, etc) into the app with customizable notifications when you need to renew. Seems underbaked. Glad our tax dollars are going to good use!

Beyond frustrating
I would never have imagined a worse experience than going to the DMV in person. This app said hold my beer and doubled down on making the experience as bad as possible. I will be waiting inline with my book tomorrow instead of using this app. 1 Star. Would not Recommend.

Doesn't work
I downloaded this app on iPhone to practice the tests. It doesn't work. No matter where I go the screen is blank. Nothing comes up. I've tried several times, different days, with wifi, without wifi and just kept my 4g on and it never worked for me. What a waste of time!

Blank screens and crashes
The home screen and main menu is the only thing that worked in this app. Anytime I clicked one of the links it would either go to a blank screen or when I clicked the office finder it will crash every time.

Test Outdated
I used this test to practice for my drivers license renewal but when I went to take the test I learned that not one question was on the test. I told the clerk at motor vehicle and she told me that the test had not been updated. What a waste of time.

Sort of a worthless app if you're looking for wait times as they are completely off. Went early and the app said it was a 10 minute wait time, ended up waiting for 2 hours.
