    If you are a bus or truck driver, or plan to be, use the Commercial Driver's Manual as a starting place to study for your commercial driver's license (CDL) exams. It tells you the steps for getting your CDL and offers useful advice for staying safe on the road.

    Motorcycle Operator Manual

    If two wheels are more your speed, the Motorcycle Operator Manual gives you the requirements for getting a motorcycle learner's permit and motorcycle license in Virginia, as well as providing important safety information that is unique to motorcyclists.

    These manuals are also available in print at your local DMV customer service center.
