Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) announces that drivers now have the additional option to read and study the Motorists’ Handbook as an eBook on their tablet device in English. The Motorists’ Handbook explain the rules of the road and offers safe driving recommendations to help you safely operate a car or light truck (Class D license).

The Motorists’ Handbook provides details about current Wisconsin law regarding speed limits, traffic signs and signals, parking and much more. It includes instruction on tricky parking procedures and safe driving techniques, even how to maneuver Wisconsin’s relatively new roundabouts.

“This is chock-full of terrific information for applicants and drivers,” said Debbie Kraemer, supervisor, Bureau of Driver Services. “The eBook option for tablets makes this version especially convenient to study and prepare for the knowledge test that all applicants must pass to get a driver license.”

The new eBook option offers flexibility and convenience. Like an increasing number of DMV online services, the Motorists’ Handbook can be accessed online and downloaded free in eReader and Kindle app versions. WisDOT will continue to provide it in PDF form online as well. In its 60-page printed form, the Motorists’ Handbook is available at Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) customer service centers. An abridged, easy-to-read version, the WI Driver’s Book (Manual del Conductor), is available in Spanish at www.dot.wi.gov/drivers/docs/s-handbook.pdf.
