According to research if he fails on the third try he will be required to reapply for the examination which will consist of retaking the written exam.

Q: I failed the behind-the-wheel portion of my driver's test. Can I protest my score?

A: You cannot protest the score you received, but you may take the behind the wheel exam up to three times.

Adults can make a request to be retested the same day. Minors who fail the written test must wait one week before taking the exam again. Minors who fail the driving test must wait two weeks.

If after the third time you still need to pass the behind the wheel exam, you must start the application process over from the beginning.

There is also a required retest fee for the second and third times that you take the behind the wheel exam.

The DMV offers many online resources -- including the latest California Driver Handbook -- to help drivers prepare for the tests, including the latest California Driver Handbook. Go to and click on the "Publications" tab. The materials are available in nine languages including, Spanish, Chinese, Korean, Punjabi and Vietnamese.
