Whether you are studying for a regular, commercial, or motorcycle license test, your state provides driver manuals with everything you need to know about operating the vehicle and the guidelines of driving.
Now, it’s time to find out how you can get your hands on this important manual.
Visit the DMV or Vehicle Registration Office
One of your best resources to get a driver manual is your local DMV or other state motor vehicle agency. Most have hard copies at the office, as well as information on how to obtain the manual online (see below).
Before you leave, check to see if your handbook provides practice tests. These tools are great for studying for and passing your driver test. If not, ask an agent if there are any on hand and remember you can find free and low-cost practice tests from third-party providers.
Download Your State’s Driver Manual
If you don’t have time to run down to the local office, look for links to the digital version of the book on the state operated website.
Most state license and vehicle registration offices have their own Web sites and provide the driver handbook in its entirety for download.
Request a Driver Handbook by Mail
If you want a hard copy of the manual but can’t make the drive down to the local branch, you may also call into the DMV office and have one mailed to you. Check to see if your state offers this service and if there is a fee involved so you don’t have any surprises.
Commercial and Motorcycle Driver Handbooks
Manuals for CDL applicants and future bikers are also available in the aforementioned manners so take advantage of your local vehicle registration office’s services. Access to your state’s handbook is extremely easy so that you can start reading and studying as soon as possible.
