Florida Driver Education Handbook.
Mick, Susan H.
This student edition contains the same basic information as the official Florida Driver Handbook, but the reading difficulty of the material has been sharply reduced. It also provides activity-oriented exercises and review tests on this material. Introductory materials include a complete listing of all activities given, some vocabulary exercises (such as are found the beginning of each chapter in the handbook to improve student reading), and brief overview of the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. Each of the five chapters contains vocabulary improvement material and exercises, informative materials, activities, practice test, and answers to all activities and tests. Topics covered include licenses; driver examination; driving privilege revocation, suspension, and cancellation; driving after drinking; accidents; insurance laws; natural laws; traffic signals and signs; parking; defensive driving; motor vehicle inspection; motorcycles; chauffeur license; and emergency equipment. Between chapters 4 and 5 is a 30 page review section that also provides informative materials and activities. A glossary is appended. (YLB)
