If you are fourteen or older, one of the things to look forward to is getting your driver’s permit or license. The Library has a few resources to help you succeed in getting on the road. The newest resource includes Driving Tests, with eleven different tests to help you prepare for the Georgia Drivers Permit. Driving Tests can be found on our Reference Databases page under Test Preparation.
Need some help identifying signs? Are your more of a visual learner? Check out Passing the Written DMV Test. (This is not state specific, so you might also want to check Driving Tests to refine your skills.)
We have some books that might get you thinking about a road trip…or not. Here are a few to explore:
Perfect Escape by Jennifer Brown
Seventeen-year-old Kendra, living in the shadow of her brother’s obsessive-compulsive disorder, takes a life-changing road trip with him.
Going Bovine by Libba Bray
About Cameron Smith, a disaffected sixteen-year-old who, after being diagnosed with Creutzfeldt-Jakob’s (aka mad cow) disease, sets off on a road trip with a death-obsessed, video-gaming dwarf he meets in the hospital, in an attempt to find a cure.
Zits: Shredded by Jerry Scott and Jim Borgman
“Based on the hit comic strip Zits and featuring over 300 sidesplitting illustrations, Shredded follows high school sophomore Jeremy Duncan and his band, Goat Cheese Pizza, on an epic road adventure to record their first album. It’s too bad that the only studio they can afford is all the way in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, but if they can just pump enough french-fry grease into their newly veggie-powered van, they actually might make it there!”–Publisher’s website.
