California DMV publications

To compliment much of the information we have offered you, the DMV offers many publications which help California drivers navigate our roadways.

Here we hoped to give you the quick version and links to any publications you may need when it comes to the DMV.

DMV Publications

California Driver Handbook
Clearly one of the most important documents the DMV offers, the Driver Handbook is a collection of all the rules and regulations drivers are expected to follow when on public roadways.

This is useful reference information for anyone expecting to take their drivers test, or for anyone who simply wants to buff up on the rules of the road.

Road rules are something that everyone should brush up on periodically, this helps make our California roads as safe and easy to navigate as possible.

The DMV offers the California Driver Handbook online and in PDF format. Now you can browse through it from your computer at home.

For your convenience the Commercial Handbook is also offered online and in PDF format.

Motorcycle Handbook
