Adults are not required to take any driver education courses. Adults can simply submit their DMV application. After, pass a vision and knowledge exam. Noteworthy, we recommend reading the CA DMV Handbook prior. In addition, everyone must pass the written knowledge first. And then, you can take the driving exam.
