Adults and youths who have not developed normal reading skills are experiencing difficulty in passing the written test required in the procurement of a driver's license. The document is a modified handbook, written to enable persons who are not able to comprehend the material included in the "Florida Driver's Handbook" to pass the written test. The modified handbook was designed so that an individual will advance at his own pace until he completes a module or unit. It is written, with the exception of a few technical words, at a fourth grade readability level. The handbook contains comprehension and vocabulary exercises. Topics included in the handbook are organized into five chapters: (1) Your License; (2) Your Driving Right or Privilege; (3) Your Driving; (4) Your Vehicle; and (5) Chauffeur's License. The modified handbook was prepared to serve as an instructional aid for persons interested in specific topics relating to the Florida Right to Read Effort. (Author/AJ)
