Driver Handbook

The New Hanover County Schools Driver Handbook is divided into five chapters. Each chapter in the handbook has been converted into an Adobe Acrobat file. You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your computer in order to view these files. Adobe Acrobat Reader is on the Web as a free download.
Once you have opened a chapter, the table of contents is bookmarked to the specific topic.  Just click on the name of the topic that you wish to view. A link back to this page is provided in the navigation panel at the left of each page. If necessary, you can use the magnifying tool to zoom in on files. Alternatively you may access the various sections of the handbook via the drop-down menu in the navigation menu to the left.
