For both the California online driver education course, and the California online traffic violator school course, you should use the links on the left hand side of our website entitled "Return to my Course". Select the appropriate course, and then follow the instructions from there to enter your username and password for the course.

If you have not yet registered for a course, you will first need to navigate to your desired course from the top navigation bar, and then register for the course by adding it to your shopping cart or following the instructions given on that page.
There is no specific age requirement for Online Driver Education. If you are taking it for the first time as a teenager, and are looking to get your learner's permit, then we would not recommend it for anyone under the age of 14 1/2. This is because you are not eligible to get your learner's permit with the DMV until you are 15 1/2. We would not want you to forget everything you learned in your Online Driver Education course because you took the course too young.
You can still get a driver license at the age of 16 in California. Despite common rumors(usually spread by older kids) there is no planned legislation to change the legal driving age in California. You must first obtain a learner's permit. You can get a learner's permit at age 15 1/2. See the FAQ on licensing procedures in California for more details.

Our online course works great on any device that uses a full browser. This includes any 7 inch or greater tablet including the iPad and Kindle Fire. The best browsers are: Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, Netscape, Google Chrome, and Safari. The course has been run and tested in all of these browsers.

The course will also run on an iPhone or other smartphone. These devices usually do not run a full browser. It would be difficult to view much content on such a small device, and because of the browser, the functioning may be limited.

Of course, our course will also run on any regular PC, laptop or Apple computer.
The California DMV requires you to be at least 15 1/2 to get your learner's permit.
What should I bring with me to my written learner's permit test at the DMV? What do I need for my behind the wheel drive test at DMV? Can I still get my driver's license on my 16th birthday?
If you are under 18 you must bring the following items with you to DMV in order to take your written test for a learner's permit.

  • Proof of completion of classroom or online driver education. This will be a certificate issued to you upon completion of your driver education from the school you took the course from.
  • Your birth certificate. It must be an official copy from the county where you were born, and contain the raised county seal. If you were born out of the country, you must bring your proof of legal residence.
  • Your social security card.
  • An application for a driver license. This is a DMV form # DL 44, and can be picked up on the counter of your local DMV office. It is a from in duplicate, so it cannot be downloaded from the internet. The form must be signed by ALL parents or guardians.
  • An application fee of $32 dollars for an original license. Checks and debit cards are ok, but no credit cards.
  • You will be required to take a vision test, so if you wear glasses/contacts you will need them.
If you are over 18, you will need all these things except for the proof of completion of driver education, and the parent/guardian signature.
If you are under 18, you will need the following for your behind the wheel drive test at the California DMV.

  • You will need to be at least 16 years old.
  • You will need to have held your permit for at least six months, and bring it with you.
  • You will need to have practiced for at least 50 hours (10 of which must have been at night), and your parent/guardian will need to sign on your permit to verify this practice.
  • You will need to bring your certificate of completion for the 6 hours of behind the wheel driver training. This certificate is issued to you by the school where you completed the behind the wheel driver training. 
  • You will need to bring a vehicle for the test. The DMV does not provide the vehicle for the behind the wheel drive test. The vehicle you bring must be in sound working order. The lights/blinkers, wipers, horn, seat belts, windows/doors, glove box, must all be in working order. The tires must not be bald. There can be no cracks in the windshield.
  • You will also need to bring the proof of registration and insurance for the vehicle you will use on the test.
  • It is a good idea to bring your birth certificate and SS card again, even though you brought them to get you permit. If the DMV made a mistake entering the data the first time, they may require you to show them again. If you do not have them, they may not let you take the test.

If you are 18 or over, you will just need to bring your learner's permit, your car, and the proof of registration and insurance for the car.

Getting your driver's license on your 16th birthday makes for the ultimate sweet 16. And yes, it is still possible. In order to make it happen, you have to plan ahead. The California DMV requires you to hold your learner's permit for at least 6 months prior to taking your behind the wheel driving test to get your driver's license. The DMV also does not allow you to get your learner's permit until you are aged 15 1/2. Therefore, you must prepare for, take, and pass your written test for your learner's permit on the day that you turn 15 1/2. Then you will have held your permit for exactly 6 months and be eligible for your driver's license test on the day that you turn sweet 16. If you do not pass your written permit test on the first try, then you will be delayed by one week, so study hard.
I just got my learner's permit. Can I use it today? I have my learner's permit. Who can I drive with? Why can't I login to my online course, or why doesn't it save my progress through the course?
If you are under 18 years of age, then you may not drive with your learner's permit until you have completed the first lesson of behind the wheel driver training with a licensed California driving school.

If you are age 18 or older, you may begin using your learner's permit immediately after it is issued to you.
If you are under the age of 18, then you may drive with anyone who is 25 or older. The person who is 25 or older must posses a valid California driver's license, and must be sitting in the front passenger seat next to you. That person must also be sober and in a condition to be able to assist you if necessary. If those requirements are met, then you may drive anywhere in the State of California, at any time of day or night, with anybody else in the car too, as long as the 25 or older person is next to you.

If you are 18 or older, then you may drive with anyone who is also 18 or older, as long as all the other rules above are also met.

Our online course must be able to communicate with your computer in order for you to login, and for it to save your forward progress through the course. It does this by placing a cookie on your computer. Most cookies (including ours) are totally safe. They are used by most websites today in order to keep track of your important interactions with the website. For example, Amazon.com uses a cookie to keep track of items that you may place in a shopping cart. These cookies will not harm your computer, and they are not used to obtain personal information from you. They are simply used to make your internet experience better.

In any case, if you are having login problems, or if your progress through our course is not being recorded, it is most likely due to the fact that you are either blocking cookies from our website, or that a previously placed cookie has become expired or corrupted. The first steps to fix this are as follows, and pertain to most internet browsers.

  • Close all open browsers.
  • Then re-open your browser and go to the settings. Delete all temporary internet files, and delete all cookies.
  • Then make sure that you are not blocking cookies from allgooddrivers.com, or from cloud.allgooddriving.com.
  • Then add allgooddrivers.com, and cloud.allgooddriving.com to the list of sites where cookies are accepted. 
  • Then return to our site, and attempt to login and take the course again.

If you still have problems, and you have security/antivirus/anti spyware software, then you may need to adjust it's settings as well. It is rare that these programs effect our course, but some of them have very aggressive settings that may be adjusted to block everything from anyone(including important cookies).  To test this you may want to temporarily turn it off, then access the course and see if it works. If it does, then you know you  need to adjust the settings within your security software.

If you do not have security software and are still having problems, then you likely have a virus or spyware that is interfering with our cookie. You may need to install some security software to fix the issues.

If after all this you are still having problems, then you will need to contact us using the "contact us" link on the left.

What is your policy if I have to cancel a Behind The Wheel Training appointment?
If a cancellation or schedule change is necessary, you must notify the office at least 24 hours before the scheduled appointment.  If the office is not notified of a cancellation or change, a $20.00 cancellation fee will be charged.  For all cancellations or schedule changes, please call: 1-800-977-1971
