考加州駕照

請問有人知道在加州LA, 從報考駕照到拿到駕照大概要多久時間呢? 包括筆試和路考

Update:

To: Gary:

I am permanent resident. To rent a car by IDL is very expensive. I plan to apply the DL after my return to LA later. So if I can rent a car by International DL minimum 3 weeks start from LAX, then switch to resident DL? Or I can switch to resident's rate by just temporary DL?

Update 2:

I was in LA just few weeks ago. 'Alamo' told me that both car rental fee and insurance are all different for drivers who have international license or US local license. I am a new immigrant. I don't have any record in DMV.

Update 3:

I need to rent a car in beginning but at lowest expense. That's why I have to estimate for how long time is required to get DL. So I can rent a car in same period. Then switch to resident's rate if I still need to rent a car.

Update 4:

If 3 weeks is not possible, then how long time period can be expected?

Update 5:

To: Ashoka:

I love your answers. But if you can move your reply from '意見' to '回答'?

我使用英文是因為我的中文打字很慢, 沒有其他意思. 您的回答我讀了好多遍. 根據您的意見, 我下次回LA租車過日子, 在拿到執照前, 使用外國人買租車保險至少一個月是跑不掉了, 臨時執照可以降低保費嗎? 我很窮, 想省錢呀! Mamamia!

Update 6:

To: S

很不幸的, 小弟家裡就是有一個剛過二十的. 一個月1000會不會太狠了? 那一年的保險費就夠買一輛車了. 我知道美國甚麼都要錢. 小弟雖窮, 該花的還是要設法, 我現在是在抓預算, 看看拿到駕照前需投資多少在租車+保險上. 這位大姊可有甚麼省錢的妙方?

小弟有數十年駕駛經驗, 不過那都是在台灣. 美國是另一回事, 我需要學習.

    Everyone is different.

    One of the process that California DMV has to do is verify your legal status, which will take the longest time (as California does not issue ID/DL to anyone that don't hold a legal status in California).

    So if this is the first ever ID/DL that you applied through California DMV, it may takes months.

    But if you have a ID/DL before, it will be about 1-2 weeks.

    Seriously, car rental has nothing to do with your license.

    It has more to do with the insurance itself.

    Again - how long does it takes depends on if you have a record with DMV or not.

    3 weeks for a license? Unless the schedule at DMV works for you, it will be almost impossible to do so.

    Again - it depends on your "hit" with the USCIS.

    It can range from a month to 1 year. No one knows.

    題目背熟的, 筆試一次過, 當場就可以約路考時間. 要去DMV前可以預約時間, 先上網預約就省的在DMV大排長龍.

    動作標準的, 一次路考就會過, 當場就拿臨時駕照. 別以為在台灣會開就輕忽. 主考官英文可能很含糊, 你沒聽懂她在嘟噥什麼, 扣分...要一次考過, 針對某個DMV看看有沒有常走的路線, 自己先練練車. 對附近街道熟悉有助於一次成功.

    貴?

    請問版主貴庚, 性別? 如果你是男性, 26歲以下, 駕照在3年之內... 你就算是買了車, 保險費還是不少錢的. 家裡如果有會開車的teenager一個月1000元的保險費不算誇張. 你可以隨便找家保險公司問問看.

    我在LA租過一天稅前10幾元的車. 但是, 如果加稅+保險=一天就要60-70元. 我是20年, 無紀錄女性的加州駕照..這樣了了嗎?

    租車公司把上萬美元的車租給你, 保險是為你, 為他, 以及路上其它的人. 如果真出事, 那是很恐怖的. 抱歉, 這就是醜陋的現實.

    你要有車才能買保險, 租車只能買travel car insurance. 你可以先看看手邊哪個信用卡是有包括租車險的. 我知道discovery有, 很多信用卡也有, 重點就是租車時要刷那張卡. 你不可以用網上標價錢租車, 你只能用該卡直接跟車行租, 這樣才有保險. 如果信用卡沒有這種服務, 也可以找找專賣travel insurance的.

    筆試通過後就預約路考,通常可以約在兩個星期左右,如果路考順利通過的話,大約再三個星期可以拿到正式駕照。

    所以如果一切順利的話,從通過筆試那天開始大約五個星期,在這期間妳會拿到臨時駕照。(以我是外國人的身分而言)

    筆試不難,DMV裡有一本小冊子,看熟就好。路考建議請位教練指導,他會帶你在考場的考試路線練習。筆試通過後有三次的路考機會,若三次還不過,要重新考筆試。

    你去打聽一下哪幾個考場比較好過,通說不同考場的過關率差很多。我很幸運,離我最近的考場報考人數算太多,而且考試路線也簡單。

    筆試要一大早就去考,DMV一開門就要到,你的等待時間會減少很多。下午才去的話,你光是要排進門裏頭都要排半天。DMV很慢,要有心理準備,帶本小說或帶game去殺時間。

    這位,寫中文的你就不當一回事?我今年8月中才開始考筆試,9月底拿駕照。國際駕照租車和美國駕照租車的價格沒差,小車一天20多美金,貴的是保險,比車子還貴,但若你要用租車去考駕照,一定要show保險資料給DMV看,否則不讓你考路考。

    路考通過後,即使你是美國人,也要等2~3星期,因為你的資料會被送到Homeland Security去審核,所以5個星期是最樂觀的估計。拿到臨時駕照就可以買車買保險,租車就可以退掉。

    Alamo這樣告訴你?try Enterprise, same price.
