When You Need a California Driver License
If you become a resident of California, you must get a CA driver license within ten (10) days. Residency is established by voting in an election, paying school tuition, property tax or any other benefit not given to non-residents.

The following steps are required to get your California driver’s license if you are 18 or older:

After doing the above you will be given a permit if you have not had a previous license or a license if moving from out-of-state.
