** Since the original publishing of this page, other sources of audio driver license manuals have become available. More states are offering these, also check out your state’s license information at
https://driving-tests.org/ There are audio manuals there with the latest versions. As a result, we won’t continue to update this page.
Because the manuals are so long, many people take practice tests in order to begin recognizing common test questions. We have shared some tips for this in our Premium magazine (May 2022), but do check out the drivers license flashcard sets at sites like Quizlet.com For example, here is a link to the flashcards for the Washington state drivers license test. These are free to use for their standard features – and if you scroll down to the bottom of the page, you can see a small speaker icon that will read the cards to you.
To have the manual read to you from the pdf, click on the “Reciteme” button in the upper left of this web page. To disable text to speech, click the X in the upper right. Thanks to the Pennsylvania Literacy Coalition’s links to the state audio version of the drivers manual.
** For Text to Speech versions – WAIT to allow Reciteme to translate the pdf into listening format. Longer Manuals Take Longer** Also every effort has been made to link to the most current driving manual. Please contact us for any corrections.
To listen to manuals noted “text to speech”, you must first ‘Enable Recite’ at the top of this page at Top Left. To disable Recite, click the X at Top Right. ***
