Cathlamet Public Library announces partnership with Driving-Tests.org

 


Cathlamet Public Library has announced a new partnership with Driving-Tests.org, one of the nation’s top sites for driver’s license practice tests. The partnership will strengthen the library’s mission to be a vital gateway to information.

Driving-Tests.org, a company dedicated to driver safety and education, will offer free Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) practice tests to library patrons, starting June 8. The new service includes free tests specifically based on the state’s DMV materials. It is the only site of its kind to include accessibility tools that let users hear selections read aloud, make them into MP3s, translate pages into other languages, magnify text, and mask portions of the screen for greater visibility on the driving practice tests.

The creators of Driving-Tests.org have emphasized availability and accessibility since the site is designed to help new drivers study state manuals and take driving practice tests based on the real DMV written exams. This partnership allows the Cathlamet Public Library to harness the power of Driving-Tests.org’s specialized practice exams to turn new drivers into safer drivers.

The new program will work as an outreach to several valued groups of patrons, including teens, those with disabilities, and seniors who need to take a renewal exam, as well as patrons at every other stage of life.

“We have partnerships with hundreds of schools and other libraries across the nation, devoted to creating safe drivers,” said Andrei Zakhareuski, the founder of Driving-Tests.org. “Our partners value information and accessibility – the same values we have, and the ones that lead to safer roadways.”
