Effective Spring semester 2019, a personalized VTA Eco Pass Clipper Card (Eco Pass) will be available to all registered San Jose City College students. This gives SJCC students the opportunity to utilize affordable public transportation on the VTA Bus and VTA Light Rail systems. SJCC Student ID cards are separate from the Eco Pass. Both cards are available at the Welcome Center in the Student Center. More details VTA Eco Pass.
If you plan to drive a car in the United States, it required to have California Driver’s License. The State of California does not recognize an International Driving Permit or International Driver’s License as a valid form of driver’s license. You can also use it as your ID in many public places. Please apply only at the official website www.dmv.ca.gov!
If you have or are eligible for a social security number, then you must provide the number on your application. An exception to the SSN requirement: If you are legally present in the U.S., but ineligible for an SSN, you are exempt from SSN requirements. However, you must still provide at least two acceptable birth date/legal presence documents for any DL/ID card application OR provide a valid SSN.

Didn’t pass? Don’t worry. You can repeat this step. Before retesting, study the California Driver Handbook. Provisional applicants must wait a week before retesting.
If you still do not pass the knowledge test after three (3) attempts, you will need to begin the application process again (go to STEP 1).

Passed your knowledge test? Congratulations!
Step 5: What Happens Once You Pass Your Knowledge Test?
Even if you have driven before, it is a good idea to practice driving before making a driving test appointment.
The behind-the-wheel driving tests are available by appointment only. Once you are ready, you can schedule an appointment online at www.dmv.ca.gov or by calling 1-800-777-0133.
On the day of your driving test appointment, arrive 10-15 minutes early with an accompanying licensed driver as described in your permit’s restrictions. Go to the START HERE window or a designated check-in counter.
The items you will need include:
No one except the examiner is allowed to accompany you during the driving test.
Your driving test begins with a vehicle safety check. This pre-drive inspection demonstrates that you are familiar with your vehicle and that your vehicle meets the DMV’s minimum safety requirements.
Didn’t pass? Don’t worry. You can make an appointment to repeat this step. Provisional applicants must wait two (2) weeks before retesting.
Check the DMV website for the retest fee(s). If you still do not pass the driving test after three (3) attempts, you will need to begin the application process again (go to STEP 1). Passed your driving test? Congratulations!
