My 16-yr old son is smart and creative, but has traditionally not done well with tests. He has anxiety and is currently in the process of seeking diagnosis for ADHD. He has now failed the DMV written test 6 times, and he is incredibly frustrated. Are there any tutors or other suggestions parents may have? He has studied repeatedly the DMV book, he took an online course, and has taken numerous practice tests. He does well on the practice tests but then continues to “panic” at the DMV and miss 1 or 2 too many questions to pass. His parents are supportive and encouraging. We do our best to not put pressure on him & stay positive. Seeking help here because he really wants to drive, but is now feeling worse about himself every time he fails and now has taken a long break from trying.Oct 24, 2022

Not sure if anyone will have an answer to this, but I can't find it online so far, and the DMV is not answering phone calls.
My husband and I just moved to Berkeley. We are trying to get CA drivers licenses, and change our voter registration to CA.
All the DMV resources explain how to do this pre-COVID: go to a DMV and take a written test. But DMV is appt only now, and everything I'm finding suggests they are not taking new appointments.
I feel like I must be missing something, but can't figure it out... so thought there might be other parents who have run into this.
I read that you have to get a CA license within 10 days, but maybe that will be extended due to the lack of DMV facilities?
Thanks so much for any thoughts / support!

Hello Wise Community,
My 17-year-old daughter got her driver's license a little over 3 months ago. Legally, she cannot transport anyone under 20 until she turns 18 in September. She is a good kid and generally follows rules. However, she's pushing hard against this one, telling me that I am the only parent who expects her to follow this law. Her friend's parents allow them to transport friends if they clear who/when/where in advance. She is particularly pushing to drive a teammate on her school lacrosse team to a game for which a team bus is not available. In addition to the state law, the school has a rule that students are not to drive each other to school events regardless of age.
While I appreciate she (reluctantly and with hesitation) asked me about this, my instinct is to hold firm to both the school rule and the state law. Am I an outlier here?Mar 9, 2020
