Welcome to the wonderful world of big socialist govt bureaucracy. "i'm from the govt and I'm here to help". Yeah. The DMV gets to make their own rules, and your only option is to comply, even if compliance is effectively impossible. Don't waste any time or money on lawyers 'helping you' in these issues, as there is nothing cost effective we can do for you with DMV, short of an expensive lawsuit if one could be validly based on your facts. Just a friendly warning no one has told you about, that is, even if you do get all the items CA DMV demands, they may not honor the 'required classes' from out of state as not being good enough', and might make you do it all over again in CA classes to satisfy them. You might consider volunteering to do that if all else fails.
