Drivers Education Manual

Drivers Education Manual

A drivers education manual is an important part of a driver’s education curriculum, usually used in addition to a textbook, movies, video games, and on the road training.

This is true, regardless of whether it is a classroom-based or home-based driver’s education curriculum - online or offline.

There are a lot of different topics covered in your own state drivers ed manual that will help you know the various areas on which you'll be tested when the time comes.

You'll learn the state requirements for getting a license, like age, training, education, and testing.

It will also discuss the different types of licenses available.

Other topics in the manual include how to obtain a new resident/renewal license, a duplicate drivers license, or an extension of your current drivers license.

You'll find important facts on keeping your license, understanding motor vehicle laws, and the dangers and consequences of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

You need to study your drivers education manual so that you'll know what you need to not only pass your drivers license test, but also become a genuinely safe driver.
