    IL Driver Handbook

    The first step on the road to obtaining your Illinois driver's license should be to thoroughly study the Illinois Rules of the Road, also known as the Illinois driver's handbook or driver's manual.

    This manual is available both online in HTML format and as a downloadable PDF file requiring the free Adobe Reader software to read. The Illinois driver's manual is also available at your nearest Illinois Secretary of State driver services office.
