The Office of Driver Services has published a manual to help you prepare for the driving tests. The manual also includes great information on safe driving, vehicle equipment, sharing the road, and traffic rules.
The comprehensive Arkansas Driver's License Study Guide is written to include all the information you need to know before passing your driving tests. If you are applying for a new license you will need to get a copy of the manual and read it very carefully.

It's also a good idea to pick up a new one every few years as a refresher course for any new laws that have been passed.
Begin with the contents page to get a feel for how the information is organized. The majority of pages are dedicated to equipment safety, sharing the road, and traffic rules.
The manual comes with a detailed section of what to expect and how to prepare for the road test, and you can get a practice test for the written exam through your driver's education classes.
Essentially, you'll want to practice basic driving skills in many situations:
- Wet Roads
- Backing Up
The Arkansas State Police will give you the road skills test. Being well prepared and knowing what to expect may help you with any driving jitters.
