Part of the responsibility of the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles is to ensure proper training and licensing of all drivers on Nevada highways so that public safety can be maintained. That's why the agency is so dedicated to education and resources that are freely and widely available to all. With the wealth of printed information the DMV has prepared on a variety of important topics, there's really no reason not to know your stuff.
All of the manuals below are available online in PDF format (just click the link) or as a printed publication that you can get at the DMV office nearest you.
The 63-page Nevada Driver's Handbook is your first stop in obtaining a new license―or in familiarizing yourself with Nevada rules of the road if you've moved from another state. You can also find the manual in Spanish.
For teenagers just learning to drive, the Beginning Driver Training Guide will be a valuable resource in your journey. It's not meant to replace the Nevada Driver's Handbook, but it's written specifically for beginning drivers who already have an instruction permit. It helps parents and guardians focus on specific skills and knowledge that will be necessary for the beginner to obtain the full driving permit later.
Bikers will take particular interest in the Motorcycle Operator Manual, which contains the specific guidelines and skills necessary to obtain a motorcycle endorsement and to operate a motorcycle safely on public roads.
Drivers who want to obtain a permit to drive large noncommercial vehicles will need to check out the Non-Commercial Class A or B or J and R Endorsement Guide for vehicle-specific rules and regulations.
And finally, people seeking a commercial driver license (CDL) will want to immerse themselves in the comprehensive Commercial Driver's License Handbook. It's not only the vehicles that are oversized―this manual has a whopping 213 pages packed with important information for road safety, as well as driving test requirements.
