    Washington's Department of Licensing publishes a number of driver manuals and handbooks to help new motorists learn the rules of the road (and to help experienced drivers brush up on their knowledge). You can pick these manuals up at your local Department of Licensing office, or you can download them here for free.

    The manuals available online are in PDF format, so be sure that you have the free Adobe Reader software on your computer.
