Wayne County Public Library has partnered with the popular driver education platform Driving-Tests.org. Patrons can access Driving-Tests to start preparing for their DMV knowledge exam by visiting https://wcpl.driving-tests.org/. The program is designed to help both new and experienced drivers. Tests can be accessed from any computer or mobile device.
“I’m excited that, in this age of social distancing, we can better serve the needs of our diverse community virtually with this service, especially since many in our county may not be able to use DMV services during the ongoing crisis. It offers a lot to our patrons,” said Susan Edgerton, Reference Librarian at WCPL. The Driving-Tests collection includes access to a DMV office finder, beginner driver’s guide, virtual DMV assistant, and Challenge Bank – a special test that stores the user’s wrong answers from taking practice tests.
With the motto of “everyone can be a safe driver,” Driving-Tests.org provides WCPL patrons with unlimited access to official state driver’s manuals, online practice tests for car, motorcycle, and commercial driver’s license (CDL), an exam simulator, and a DMV-related FAQ. In addition to being the largest and most visited independent online driver education provider in the U.S., Driving-Tests.org helps patrons pass their driving knowledge test faster and more effectively – learner drivers who take the practice tests and read the official manual are 73% more likely to pass than those who study the manual alone.
Driving-Tests was founded in 2010 by CEO Andrei Zakhareuski as an educational platform that empowers people to increase their knowledge of how to be safe behind the wheel. It is a part of Elegant E-Learning, Inc., a ten-year-old company with a proven track record of revolutionizing online resources for learner drivers. Driving-Tests is also part of a plan to improve global driver safety by providing free practice tests written by experts to anyone who wants to study, along with online copies of official study guides. To help achieve this goal, the company has also created driving practice sites for the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and India.
Since 2010, over 46 million Americans have passed their knowledge test using the platform.
