FAQs / Should I take my student driver out on public roads to practice before their first driving lesson?

We discourage parents from taking their children out driving on public roads before they have had their first lesson with the instructor.  The permit is not yet valid and students may develop bad habits from this early training.  On the first lesson, the driving instructor will sign the student’s permit which will make it legal for the student driver to begin practicing with a licensed California driver 25 or older.
