The library is partnering with Driving-Tests.org to offer free Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) practice tests to library patrons. The new service includes free tests specifically based on Pennsylvania’s DMV materials. This program includes multiple car, motorcycle, and CDL practice tests, online driver’s manuals (car, motorcycle, and CDL), and a FAQ section with detailed answers to over 100 DMV-related questions. It is the only site of its kind to include accessibility tools that let users hear selections read aloud, make them into MP3s, translate pages into other languages, magnify text, and mask portions of the screen for greater visibility on the practice tests.
