Cudahy Family Library announces a partnership with DrivingTests.org, to offer free Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) practice tests. 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 practice tests.
