DMV RELEASES AUDIO DRIVER HANDBOOKS

CARSON CITY – The Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles has released audio versions of the Nevada Driver Handbook in both English and Spanish.

The recordings, in the MP 3 format, are available online at dmvnv.com/handbooks.

In general, audio books have traditionally been used to assist second-language learners, learning-impaired students, struggling readers and non-readers. The audio handbooks will help drivers in all of these groups learn the rules of the road and Nevada-specific laws.

“Our goal is to help make Nevada’s roads safer by providing driver training in a variety of formats,” said DMV Acting Director Cyndie Munoz. “We have offered the driver knowledge test in audio for many years. The audio handbooks are a significant enhancement to help new drivers learn the rules.”

The Department gives special thanks to the Nevada Secretary of State’s office and the Nevada Talking Books Services program of the Nevada State Library for assistance with the Spanish edition. A Secretary of State staff member, Maria Tello-Magana, recorded the Spanish audio at the Nevada State Library in Carson City. The English version was recorded by DMV Public Information Officer Kevin Malone.
