No driver's education would be complete without several read-throughs of the driver's manual. Every state puts out a publication for its drivers with basic information about the rules of the road and defensive driving tactics. Most also offer information about getting a license in that state.
The first section provides complete instructions for getting a driver's license in Virginia. The second section talks about the rules of the road and communicating with other drivers, plus info for registering a vehicle.
The manual includes examples of good driving practices, such as using seatbelts, adjusting your mirrors, and leaving enough space between your vehicle and others on the road. The manual also discusses avoiding dangerous behaviors such as driving aggressively, driving while distracted, or driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol.
Whether you are driving for the first time, are new to the state, or just want to refresh your memory, the Virginia Driver's Manual is a good place for basic information.
You may also obtain a printed copy of the Virginia Driver's Manual from any DMV customer service center. High school students and those attending commercial driving schools can also get copies at school.
