U.S. Road Sign Questions & Answers
All states have questions about common road signs and signals on their official knowledge test for a driver’s license or learner’s permit.
Which signs that will show up on the test differ from state to state – but also from test to test. Today, all states use computerized tests with random questions drawn from a larger pool of DMV questions. This means that each test is (at least in theory) unique.
If someone tells you which questions they got on their test, you can’t expect to get the same questions. Even wording of questions and alternatives can vary from time to time.
Therefore, you need to prepare well for your DMV test and truly know and understand the contents of your state’s driver handbook/manual.

Many first-time test takers believe that understanding road signs is just common sense and they tend to skip that part in their state’s driver guide. Unfortunately, many of the errors made on a DMV test involves road signs and signals.
Not only will DMV ask about the name and meaning of signs but also about proper actions and driving behavior, which can make answering a bit trickier.
You should also be aware that DMV tends to focus some questions on the shapes and colors of road signs.
The use of different shapes and colors isn’t random. Every shape and every color are used to convey a specific message.
Yellow road signs display warnings. Orange signs are used to warn you specifically about road works. Blue, brown, and green are only used on different types of guide signs.
Do you know how red, white, and black is used?
Some shapes are only used on one type of signs, like the eight-sided shape, the round shape, the five-sided shape, and the up-side down triangle.
