Illinois contains a vast network of roads and highways connecting everything from Chicago to cornfields and your ability to access it all starts with a driver’s permit, which you receive by first studying the Illinois Driver’s handbook on this page. We provide the most current version, getting it directly from the Illinois Secretary of State’s website. When you feel comfortable with the handbook, you can start applying your knowledge with our free Illinois permit practice tests. Once you’ve mastered both the Illinois Driver’s Handbook and done well on your practice tests, it’s time to schedule your real exam, and get that Illinois driver’s permit for yourself! You’re ready!
