Obtaining A Copy Of The Drivers Manual
“How can I obtain a copy of the Massachusetts drivers manual”, “where can I download a copy of the Massachusetts drivers handbook”, “does the MA RMV charge for the MA permit book?” These are the questions that appear on the site oh so often.
You can obtain a copy of the MA driver's manual either at a local RMV office (mind you, they don't always have printed copies available at every facility, it does cost money to print them and the office tends to run out of these free copies very quickly, since people don't tend to return them. It is much easier to log into the RMV website and download a copy of the book you need and then either read it off the screen or print it out and keep in the car. In order to save you some trouble, here is a download link you can use:
You will need to have Adobe Reader or any other program that can open pfd files installed on your computer to be able to open those files. If you don't know what this mambo-jumbo means, give us a buzz, we'll walk you through installing and running it, it only takes a few minutes.
Massachusetts Permit Test Study Guide
This is probably what most of us have used the drivers handbook for - to prepare for the Massachusetts permit test. No doubt, the handbook is the best MA permit test study guide there is: it covers all of the driving rules, road signs, defensive driving tactics and your knowledge exam is based on the information that appears in the book. The only cons of the permit book is the fact that it does not have any permit practice test MA questions for you to study before you take the real exam. Sure, you will be presented with some sample permit questions just before you take the real permit test at the RMV, but if you want to study before you go into the office, you can simply use this MA RMV permit practice test or these free drivers permit practice test MA questions that can be taken over and over again until you learn virtually every rule there is.
While the book is being used primarily by those who are applying for the Massachusetts learners permit, this is not the only use for the book we can think of. In fact, we advise that everyone who holds a Massachusetts drivers license keeps a current copy of the RMV handbook in the car - it is always good to have it nearby when you want to check out some driving rule or make sure you are doing everything right if you or someone else had a traffic accident. So don't throw the book away right after taking your Massachusetts driving test, keep it in the car with you!
The Massachusetts drivers manual will be especially useful for teen drivers since it lists all MA learners permit restrictions that need to be observed as part of the Mass graduated drivers license program. The book also explains all requirements to MA drivers education classes, make sure to check them out too!
