Welcome! Your California DMV guide is where you will find loads of helpful information about how to complete DMV-related transactions, and also dozens of other topics related to cars and drivers.

Because many government sites get bogged down with legal-speak, we have compiled easy-to-understand steps on how to complete licensing and registration tasks―and much, much more. All our information has been researched and written by our team of fellow Californians who cut through the red tape in order to provide you with step-by-step instructions on how to get your CA DMV tasks accomplished.

What You Can Find in Our California DMV Guide

Whether you are looking to renew or replace a California driver's license, find DMV forms, take a practice test, locate driver's ed and traffic schools, register your vehicle, apply for a disabled placard, become a car dealer, transfer your car title, or get the inside track on how to apply for a commercial driver's license―our pages will show you how.

DMV.ORG also provides information you might not think to get from the official Department of Motor Vehicles. You can find great rates on auto insurance, request a vehicle history report, order a criminal background check, locate a personal injury attorney, read articles on car maintenance, or see links for buying and selling cars―new or used.

California drivers love their cars, and we love helping you get all the information you need to keep your car on the road. If it has to do with cars and drivers, you'll find it here in the California DMV guide.
