The ultimate permit test study guide, a free DMV cheat sheet, the best study tool to help you nail the permit test - these are the things we want the official 2016 Delaware drivers manual to be, but does it fit the shoe? Well, yes and no.  The DMV manual does have all answers to the permit test, it can and should be used by anyone studying for the knowledge exam, yet it's far from being the most concise and straight to the point publication out there.  Download your copy of the drivers handbook and read on to find out out how you can save hours by concentrating on chapters of the book you will really be tested on during the knowledge test!

One of the main reasons why so many first-time drivers license applicants end up not reading the drivers manual is because it is too large and contains way too much information that is not related to the DMV written test and so is of little use to someone who is just making his/her first steps in the world of driving.  Cheap car insurance in Delaware, buying or selling a vehicle, obtaining a title or custom license plates - these are all great topics and many people would love to read up on them, just not when they are studying for the drivers license test!  We could easily weed out at least a third of the information in the 2016 Delaware drivers handbook and it would not lose any relevance to a first-time test taker!  So if you are anything like us and don't want to waste hours on reading things that won't be on the test, go ahead and skip straight to page 47 of the manual, section "Impaired driving".  The entire section is extremely important, be sure to pay attention.  The only page you can quickly skim through in this section is the one that list DUI penalties - make sure you are aware of DUI fines, but don't try and remember all of them.

Keep reading until you reach page 61 of the drivers book - How to Title/Register your vehicle.  You can stop here and move on to page 66 - Rules of the Road.  This is where it actually gets fun and this is what you are being tested on at the office.  You will need to cover everything starting from this page and up to the end of the drivers manual.  Don't worry, it may seem like a lot of information to process, but it really isn't that bad - the key is to start early and reading a little every day.  If you start studying for the knowledge test at least a few weeks in advance, you will only have to read a few pages of the Delaware drivers manual per day - anyone can do that!

Sadly, the DMV has chosen not to include into the drivers license handbook one thing that really matters to drivers license applicants - a practice test to help them assess how well they have learned the rules.  Fortunately, we are here for you! We have built an entire collection of free practice quizzes for you to work on and we have a test for you regardless of your current level of expertise!  Beginners will find it easier to start with the basic Delaware practice permit test.  Those who want to study road signs or pavement markings will enjoy working on topical road sign practice tests.  Students who believe they are ready to hit the DMV office should try their wits against the Delaware permit test Simulator, a practice test that simulates the real exam to the smallest detail!  Remember though, practice tests should not substitute for reading the official Delaware drivers book, you should do both!  Good luck!
