There are some special California rules and laws you must know for your CA DMV Test. They are very likely to show up on your final Permit Exam or Driver's License Exam.
Your business or not if you smoke in your car? Yes, it is, unless there is a minor in the car. Since 2008, California prohibits smoking in a vehicle when anyone up to 17 years is present.
It is also unlawful to leave a child 6 years old or younger unattended in a car. If a child is left in the car, it must be under the supervision of a person 12 years old or older. In hot weather, it is always dangerous and illegal to leave minors and/or animals in a motor vehicle. Read those chapters carefully.
There are more special rules and laws mentioned in the California Driver handbook. Study those chapters carefully.
