Drivers Education Program

Theresa Public Library has a quick link available on our website offering a free drivers education program containing: 11 car practice tests, 9 motorcycle practice tests, 12 CDL practice tests, 3 online driver’s manuals (car, motorcycle, CDL), and a FAQ section with detailed answers to over 100 DMV-related questions. All information is state specific.
The Read Aloud toolbar (found in the footer of every page) includes tools that let users hear selections read aloud or make them into MP3s, translate pages into other languages, magnify text, and mask sections of the screen for greater visibility. All tests can now be read aloud by ESL speakers, those with vision problems, and those with such learning disabilities as dyslexia.
