Where can I get a copy of the permit book?

The first step in obtaining a drivers license does not involve getting behind the wheel. Driving is secondary to getting your hands on a permit book, or what it is more commonly known as a drivers manual. Every state DMV office offers these study guides for free. You can grab one in person, or download one from your state's DMV Web site. 

In order to drive you'll need a learners permit. But to get a permit you must pass your state's written test (also known as a knowledge exam). All of the information on the written test is culled from your state's permit book. Thus, if you want to pass, study this manual. The margin of error for most written exams is slim. Most states only allow four wrong answers.

After you think you're ready, test your knowledge by taking a practice test. You'll find some state DMV Web sites offer these tests online. You can also visit several third party online sites that specialize in practice tests. You won't find any trick questions. All of the information is based directly on information taken from state driver manuals.

Passing will allow you to get a permit and make you eligible for drivers ed.
