    We are taking a road trip to California. I am 16, live in Oregon, and have had my permit for well over a year, and the big question is can i drive there(with a parent in the car of course;). i need the hours for my license) I read in the Oregon driving book it depends state by state of using a permit in other states, but if anyone has knowledge of documentation that shows whether or not i am able to would be appreciated.

    thanks.:D

    I am 90% sure you cannot drive in California without a California Driver's Permit or a California Driver's License.

    It's saying that for the first 10 days you're in California you're legal to drive with you Oregon permit. Watch out for the 405.

    According to the California Driver's Handbook, Page 2:
    Visitors over 18 years old with a valid driver license from their home state or country may drive in California without getting a driver license as long as their home state license remains valid. ​
