Manuals in ArkansasPage Overview
The Office of Motor Vehicles publishes manuals to assist drivers: one for drivers of passenger cars, one for motorcycles (in English and in Spanish), and one for commercial drivers. These manuals provide a wealth of information to help you become a safe driver.
The comprehensive driver's manual is dedicated to equipment safety, sharing the road, and traffic rules for all drivers.
Preparing for the road skills test should be a big priority for you. Remember, in Arkansas the state police will give you this test. Being well prepared and knowing what to expect may help you with any driving jitters.

Because many commercial vehicles travel across state lines, the CDL Manual includes information on both state and federal laws.
The CDL Manual will be your primary source to study for the written and road skills tests. Even after you pass the exams you will refer back to the manual frequently.
The Arkansas motorcycle manual is your main source for motorcycle licensing. The motorcycle license is a Class M license; you will learn about the qualifications, process, and traffic laws in the drivers manual.
A motorcycle safety course is encouraged by the Office of MV to promote the good driving habits taught in the course. The Office of MV has a division, Safety Responsibility which will help you locate safe driving programs near you.
The driver's manuals are updated less frequently than the laws. You'll want to stay current on all traffic rules and Office of Motor Vehicle policies. Visit the Office of Motor Vehicles often.Other Topics in This Section
