May I take Driver Education before I reach the age of 15 1/2?

Yes, but you will be covering a lot of material during this course. Most students prefer to take the class close to when they take the DMV written exam, so the information is fresh in their mind. At the end of class, you will keep your study materials and books, so you will be able to review.  For additional practice, there is a free App called DMVCA.  Download to your iPhone and you will have over 300 multiple choice questions and answers to help you prepare for the Permit exam.
