Illinois offers a huge assortment of free downloadable manuals, handbooks, and other publications online to help motorists educate themselves. All you need in order to view, save, and print these documents is Adobe's free Reader software. Here's just a sampling of the manuals you can access:
Illinois Rules of the Road: Also called the driver's handbook, this detailed manual goes over almost every aspect of driving, obtaining driver's licenses, properly managing title and registration, and even selling a car. Sample test questions are sprinkled through the text with an answer key in the back of the book. There is also a Web-based version available.
Illinois Motorcycle Operator Manual: This 48-page booklet covers everything a driver needs to know to get a motorcycle endorsement on their Illinois driver's license. Topics include what will be on the written and road tests for the motorcycle endorsement, what safety equipment is necessary, and even how to properly execute turns and other driving maneuvers. The manual won't substitute for practice behind the handlebars, but it comes as close as possible.
Illinois Commercial Driver's License Study Guide: This 161-page document goes into exhaustive detail on every aspect of the commercial driver licensing requirements and processes for Illinois. You can also obtain a free printed copy at your local driver license office; considering the ink and paper needed on this one, that may be less expensive than printing it yourself.
Illinois Traffic Offenses (Revised): Concise listing of all Illinois traffic offenses and their code numbers; handy if you want to know exactly what that ticket is accusing you of doing.
Bicycle Rules of the Road: Aimed mainly at the young rider but also useful for older bicyclists, this short handbook covers laws, traffic signals, signs, equipment, and safety.
DUI Fact Book: This 44-page book contains statistics, laws, and other materials relating to driving under the influence (DUI) of drugs or alcohol.
Use It & Lose It - The War on Drunk Driving: More information on drunk driving, Illinois' zero tolerance law, and its effect on your driving privilege. Aimed at young drivers.
