I'm from Cali.
You can go take a written test for the permit and receive it on spot. (if you pass) It's not hard, I went in there without doing any study whats so ever, passed it. JK, I failed so I picked up a handbook, sat there and read it for 20 min, took it again and passed. Then I went to a bike dealership and bought my first brand new first bike!
I don't understand your 2nd question.... at all. lol
Btw, you'll be cool on the 600 man don't trip.
Scratch that, since you're under 17, you will have to take the course for a license. But I'm sure the permit is the same way. And take the course before you turn 18. They give you a huge discount to take the course! The one I looked into charged $150 for under 18 and $250 for the rest of us old farts.
Welcome to the world, I glade you have a bike now get out and learn how to use it.
Take the MSF corse make sure you have enough insurance. Just Ride.
1st I would not ride it to and from school until you are super efficient on a motorcycle. There is a lot about riding that has nothing to do with starting and stopping the bike. Your classmates are trying to run you over. That pack shifted and now you are in a bush. So on.
2nd. The track and street have nothing in common. Most pro racers do not ride street because they don't have the skill set to deal with deer, kids chasing balls, crap falling of of trucks, traffic coming at them.
I've got a fair amount (60+ hours) on the street, so it's not as if I'm starting from nothing.
