Practice DMV Tests for Patrons

Highland Public Library is pleased to announce a new partnership with, one of the nation’s top sites for driver’s license practice tests. The partnership will strengthen the library’s mission to provide ready access and resources to information to enrich the community.

Highland Public Library is announcing a partnership with, a company dedicated to driver safety and education, to offer free DMV practice tests to library patrons, starting April 1, 2015. The new service includes free tests, written specifically based on the state DMV materials, and is the only site of its kind to include accessibility tools that allow users to hear selections read aloud, make them into MP3s, translate pages into other languages, magnify text, and mask sections of the screen for greater visibility on driving practice tests.
