Practice Oklahoma Driving Tests! http://pioneer.lib.ok.us/pls/111-Press/6349-practice-oklahoma-driving-tests http://pioneer.lib.ok.us/pls/111-Press/6349-practice-oklahoma-driving-tests

Free Permit Practice Test ButtonDriving exams. Adjust the side mirrors, buckle up, and turning your phone off are all tips we know when we get in to the driver's seat - but what about the written exam before that?

Do you know? What headlight beams do you use when driving at night in heavy fog? What does that crazy diamond shaped sign with the black squiggle on it mean? And what speed can you drive on a four-lane divided highway if it's not posted?

No worries! Your hometown libraries have you covered. Visit http://pioneerlibrarysystem.org/buckleup to take our online practice exams. And we'll have you speeding through the written portion on in no time....the driving portion we'll leave to that brave family member or friend.
