The Adapted Illustrated Montana Driver Manual
The Adapted Illustrated Montana Driver Manual is designed to help new driver license applicants understand and remember information that is required to get and keep a Montana driver license. Each of the eight chapters includes a practice quiz with an answer key.
This adapted illustrated driver manual is based on the 2015 Montana Driver Manual published and distributed by the Motor Vehicle Division of the Montana Department of Justice. The adapted manual is organized and presented in a clear and easy-to-read format with graphics and images.
In addition to helping new drivers learn the rules of the road and pass the test for a first Montana driver license, the Adapted Illustrated Montana Driver Manual includes positive encouragement to drive without distractions and impairment, to share the road safely, and to always buckle up.
An audio version of this manual will be recorded by the Montana Talking Book Library and made available on this website when recording is complete. If you would like to be notified when the audio version is available, make sure you are subscribed to the OPI’s Traffic Education E-News.
First published in 1971, this manual has been updated and republished four times, including this 2016 edition. Contact the Traffic Education Office with any questions or comments about the Adapted Manual. Call (406) 444.4432 or click Contact above for more information.
To teach traffic education in Montana’s public schools, teachers must have an active Montana educator’s license, an acceptable driving record, and at least 8 semester credits in initial traffic education coursework taken at Montana State University-Northern. Traffic education courses taken elsewhere might be transferable to Montana. Click the MSU-N link below for more information on obtaining the required credits to become an approved traffic education teacher. The current summer schedule of traffic education courses at MSUN is also posted below.
Traffic education teachers are in demand in Montana. One way a school fills this gap is to encourage a currently employed teacher to seek the traffic education endorsement. In just a few weeks from late spring to early summer, an educator can receive enough training to begin teaching traffic education in mid-summer with initial approval from the Traffic Education Office at the OPI. To learn more about becoming a teacher of traffic education and what is required to maintain your approval, download Teaching Traffic Education in Montana FAQs.
Contact the Traffic Education office with questions about teaching traffic education in Montana. For information on establishing or renewing your Montana educator’s license, go to the Educator Licensure webpage. To learn more about the traffic education profession in Montana, go to the Montana Traffic Education Association website where you can learn about their annual conference and other activities of the organization.
