Teen Events @ Fredricksen

 


FREE RESOURCE!

In partnership with Driving-Tests.org, the Fredricksen Library is proud to offer FREE Pennsylvania Driver Permit practice tests. These tests, for both automobile and motorcycle, along with the Driver Handbook for each, are available on our library homepage or by clicking on the icon to the left. Each test includes 20 to 40 questions that are very similar, often identical to the real Dept. of Transportation test.  Start now to see how ready you are for the real thing!
