I don’t know about you, but I’ve definitely got better things to do with my day than spend it at the DMV. You too? Good news! The California Department of Motor Vehicles just announced that it now offers two online options for people who need to take the written driver license’s knowledge test: A remote version of the traditional knowledge test, and also an interactive eLearning course.

The DMV says, “Currently, the remote exam is available for the nearly 2 million tests taken by Californians renewing their license each year, the more than 1.3 million tests taken by adults getting their license for the first time who also don’t have a California identification card, and Californians getting a REAL ID or motorcycle license for the first time. The eLearning course is available for Californians renewing their license.”

You’ll need to take it on a computer with a webcam, so they can monitor and make sure you’re not cheating…but this is going to make it a lot more convenient to get that piece of DMV business done!
