    Not every time, but existing license holder do on occasion have to retake (part of) the written test. Only half and from when I had to it seemed to be the half that had all the new stuff.
    I just checked with the DMV and yes indeed the DMV can make anyone at any renewal take the examination, it is up to their discretion. CVC 12814

    Well that is interesting. I and the wife have always renewed by mail...

    So how do they make this decision, I wonder... I'll agree that there are a good number if drivers out there who shouldn't be driving. My wife is a great & cautious driver. Her vision scares me when walking... I know I may need to decide when to take her keys...if I live that long...

    Oh, and it's not a "rule", it's a law.

    As to your comment about California's debt: It does indeed have a debt, almost all of which was created during the many years of Republican governorships. To be fair, much of the problem stemmed from Prop. 13, which made increasing taxes incredibly difficult and the fact that CA requires a two-thirds vote to pass a budget, which gives tremendous power to a minority of bad legislators. Now that there is not only a Democratic governor but the D's also hold two-thirds majorities in both legislative houses, California currently has a balanced budget.
    This years budget may be "balanced" as in the planned spending doesn't exceed the hoped for revenue... but not do kid yourself that 400 billion in debt went away...

    not trying to be political, just factual.

    I have no idea... no doubt they look at driving record and "points," but according to the CVC they can request a test "at their discretion" and age is not a factor.
