How to Apply Driver’s License in California for the First Time

How to Apply Driver’s License in California for the First Time:

I have a Philippine Driver’s License and was driving since 2006, however the DMV State of California does not recognize my license and any International Driving Permit (IDP) as a valid driver license, they recognize a valid driver license that is issued by the foreign jurisdiction of which the license holder is a resident – say for example if you are coming from Philippines, you should check with the US Embassy if they can issue an International Driver’s Permit so you can drive immediately after you arrive in US, but in my case I was not able to inquire that before I left Philippines so I was not able to drive in California right away.

It took me a while before I finally realize I have to apply my own Driver’s License. What’s holding me back is I don’t know where to start. Here’s how I am applying for my CA Driver’s License
