How does this work?

Massachusetts is often the butt of jokes for everything from its local accents to winters, but it requires very dedicated drivers to navigate everything the state can throw on a roadway, which is why, in order to get your driver’s permit, you need to study the Massachusetts Driver’s Handbook. The free one provided on this page is the very latest, which we provide directly pulled from Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles. When you’re ready for more practical experience, you can start taking our Massachusetts practice permit tests. After you become comfortable with both the handbook and practice tests, it’s time for the real test, so you can get that Massachusetts driver’s permit!
