The item that will help you the most when you are preparing for the driver’s written exam is the Hawaii Driver’s Manual. This guide contains all of the rules of the road that you need to know. It has information on traffic laws, parking laws, safety, and road signs. All of the questions on the written test come right from the book as well. If you study the book, you will be in good shape for the test. Of course, you can improve your chance of passing by following the rest of the advice here as well.

Downloading a PDF of the manual is a simple way to get the manual without having to pick up a copy from the Hawaii Department of Transportation. You can put the PDF on your computer, or you can put it on your mobile devices and e-reader so you have easy access to it. Reading and studying the manual is important, but you also want to test your knowledge.

Online tests
