Download the Driver’s Manual of Your State

Most drivers probably reviewed their state’s driving manual, only when they applied first for a driver’s license. But you should still download the driver’s manual of your state. This can help you review the traffic rules and regulations in your state.

It’s especially important to do this if you have recently moved from one state to another. You can see a list of all the states and territories of the USA.

Clicking on the name of the State will bring you to website of the State’s Motor Vehicle Division or Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). Most state’s driving manuals can be downloaded for free. We have indicated the paid ones below. As a general rule, requesting for a printed book costs extra.

You will need a PDF reader (such as Adobe Acrobat) to open the files.
