Obtaining a driver's license handbook can be done by contacting the local department of motor vehicles in the city where the driving test is going to take place, or by going online to the state's DMV website. Each state has a variety of manuals including commercial and motorcycle license manuals.
Driver's manuals cover a number of different topics, which include the rules of the road, the application procedures for a driver's license, safety tips, reading traffic signals and signs, handling emergency situations, and how to change a driver's name and address. Manuals also cover topics related to DWIs. Driver's can benefit from reading a driver's manual if they are getting ready to take a written exam. Many state DMV locations also have an online test that pending applicant's can take in order to prepare for the written test.
State's also have handbooks for those looking to obtain a commercial license, motorcycle license or anyone who wants to freshen up on the rules of the road. Vehicle code handbooks include information about how to handle situations where a driver has been involved in an accident, various traffic laws, inspection information, violations and penalties, as well as how to register a car properly.
