Learning to Drive this Year? Did you know the Library has a free resource to help you past your driving test?

300-250That’s right, the Library offers a free online practice test for passing the Nevada DMV test. It also includes the Nevada Driver’s Handbook you view online or download.

Visit Driver’s Education Practice Tests on the Library’s Database A-Z page.

Here’s what a local had to say about the practice tests and handbook!

“I went into the DMV this morning to take my written test and passed with a 90%! Though the practice tests were extremely helpful I would recommend reading the handbook because there is stuff in there that is not asked on the practice test. But, with the help of this site I was able to walk out of the DMV permit in hand! This site is truly a God sent and the biggest help you could ask for when preparing to take the test! I would recommend taking every test multiple times until your score is in the 90′s so that you really understand and know everything! I wish everyone taking their test the best of luck! ~ Jill Clark, Las Vegas, Nevada
