2021 NJ Driver Manual Available in Additional Languages

Tagalog, Chinese Added to Make Manual Available in State’s Four Most Commonly Spoken Languages

TRENTON – The New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission today announced the 2021 New Jersey Driver Manual is now available in two additional languages, Tagalog and Chinese, on its website at

The 2021 New Jersey Driver Manual was previously available in English and Spanish. With the addition of Tagalog and Chinese, the manual is now available in the four most commonly spoken languages in the state.

“The NJMVC is pleased to offer the 2021 New Jersey Driver Manual in Tagalog and Chinese to better serve our state’s diverse population,” NJMVC Chief Administrator Sue Fulton said. “We urge all New Jersey drivers – new and experienced – to use the manual to learn how to be safe, courteous, and aware drivers.”

In addition to the four versions available online, hard copies of this year’s manual in Spanish will ship the week of Nov. 14.

The 2021 manual includes the latest updated information about the rules of the road and the requirements for obtaining a driver license in New Jersey.

New drivers are especially encouraged to use the manual to study and prepare for the written knowledge test. The knowledge test is taken after you receive your permit, and is part of the state’s Graduated Driver License (GDL) program.

Knowledge tests are administered by the NJMVC on computers in more than 12 languages. Failure rates for knowledge tests in recent months have ranged between 40-50%.

“We can’t stress this enough – study the manual before you come for your knowledge test,” said Chief Fulton. “Be prepared and don’t take any shortcuts. We want applicants to succeed and pass their tests.”

Experienced drivers also should consult the manual to refresh their driving knowledge and stay up to date on new laws and best practices for safe driving in New Jersey.

The current New Jersey Driver Manual is accessible on the NJMVC website here in all four available languages.
