A Driver's Ed Course Fully Licensed by the California DMV

California DMV license # 4582.
The igottadrive.com Online Drivers Ed course is licensed by the California DMV (license # 4582) to replace the standard 30 hours of classroom time that must be completed by all future drivers. This course is designed to introduce you to all the fundamentals of safe driving while preparing you to receive your permit and then your California driver's license.

When you complete the course, you will receive a California Certificate Of Completion, which can be used to get your driver’s permit. Expedited certificate shipping available. You can also earn high school credits through our learning partner, Orion High School. This could also qualify you for a car insurance discount as well. We are committed to providing the knowledge you need to pass your “skills & knowledge test” and get out on the road and be a safe driver.

You can get your California driver’s license quickly and easily through our simple 3-step process. As long as you’re over 15.5 years old, you can become a fully licensed driver without all the stress. California’s process for obtaining a license can be confusing and difficult if you’re doing it alone. We want to make it as easy as possible to avoid the hassle and complete your coursework.

Important for California students

A driver’s permit allows a student to practice maneuvers on the road, as long as they are under the supervision of a parent, guardian, or adult who is at least 21 years old. You will need to successfully complete the driver’s ed course and pass the "skills & knowledge test" test at your local California DMV to acquire your permit, and we can help you through the process.

The Simple Steps to get a Permit 


Once you have secured your permit, it’s time to start your in-car training to prepare for the road test at the DMV. It will take a lot of hands-on practice, but the more you work at your skills the easier the final test will be. Spend as much time as you can behind the wheel and under the supervision of an experienced driver, and you’ll be ready for every aspect of the driving test.
