Full Answer

The DMV offers an online test variation, 25 questions and a 100 percent complete practice test for free when the examiner registers to their website. The other courses are available for a minimal fee. The basic course is a great refresher and offers unlimited test variations, 50 questions, state-specific questions and an online practice test. The same test packages are offered in the advance course plus an additional 50 questions. While a bit more expensive than the other courses, the complete course also has the same test package as the advance course, but it also provides a state driver preparation course that teaches specific laws and traffic rules and also serves as a multimedia California DMV handbook. The practice questions can be bought in the DMV website for a small fee.

Sample driver's license written tests are also available on the DMV website. There are free sample questions for regular, commercial and motorcycle drivers. The regular driver's tests are available in a number of languages, including English, Spanish and American Sign Language.
