Driver's Permit Practice App Available
Muhlenberg Community Library in partnership with Driving-Tests.org, a company dedicated to driver safety and education, offers free DMV practice tests to library patrons. The 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.
