About the online version of the NYS Driver's Manual
The online version of the NYS Driver's Manual contains substantially the same information as Parts 2 and 3 of the printed manual (Chapters 4 through 12) dated 9/11. Chapters 4 through 11 include the material you must read and understand to pass the written test for a Class D, DJ or E learner permit. Each of those chapters has an interactive quiz with actual DMV written test questions.
