The Driver License Division of the Department of Public Safety has published the Utah Driver Handbook which discusses the rules when operating a vehicle on the roads of Utah.

Some of the topics contained in the handbook are how to get a driver license; rules of the road; traffic signs, signals, and road markings; basic driving skills; how accidents may affect you; license revocation and suspension; driving under the influence of alcohol; the point system; driving records; registration, inspection, and equipment; RVs and large vehicles; driver license field offices; defensive driving courses and many others.

You can also download the handbook in its PDF format online but be sure to have the free Adobe Reader software in your computer to access the documents. The handbook also caters to Spanish speaking drivers (Manual de Conducir de Utah en Espanol).

For commercial drivers, a Commercial Vehicle Driver Handbook is published to aid them on additional topics on obtaining a commercial driver license (CDL), driving safely, transporting cargo safely, transporting passengers, air brakes, combination vehicles, tank vehicles, hazardous materials vehicles, and the tests that CDL applicants must pass to receive their commercial license. If you intend to drive a commercial vehicle, you must study this handbook in addition to the Utah Driver Handbook.
