This sign warns you of a horizontal alignment (curve) in combination with an intersection side road (intersection).
Start by comparing it with a standard curve sign. This is a curve, right? Then compare this sign with the Merge sign. They are similar, and it can be difficult to tell them apart. But you will immediately see that the merge sign has a thick line going straight.
#2. What does this sign mean?
This sign tells you that there is a flag-person ahead to control traffic. Slow down and be prepared to stop.

#4. What should you expect before coming to the T-intersection?
This sign warns you of a railroad crossing before you come to the T-intersection ahead.
#5. On which side should you pass a panel like this?
The diagonal stripes on the barricade or vertical panel guide the driver towards the direction to where the traffic is to pass. Stripes slowing downward to the left means the driver should bear to the left.
#6. What does this sign mean?
Lane Use Control. Your lane is splitting off into two separate directions. You can turn left or go straight through.
#7. What does this sign mean?
This is a regulatory sign, indicating you must keep right. At locations where it is not readily apparent that traffic is required to keep to the right, this sign tells you to pass only to the right-hand side of a roadway feature or obstruction. It is often placed at raised medians, parkways, islands, and underpass piers. The sign can be reversed (Keep Left).
#8. What does this sign indicate?
The pass-with-care sign indicates the end of the no-passing zone. When you have passed this sign, you are again allowed to pass other vehicles with care.
#9. This sign is:
This is an Advisory Speed sign. These cautionary signs show the recommended safe speed around curves, corners, and off-ramps.
#10. This traffic sign warns you of:
Narrow bridge. The bridge is wide enough to accommodate two lanes of traffic, but with little clearance.
#11. This sign warns you of:
Reverse turn. This sign tells you there two sharp turns ahead (one to the left and then a sharp turn to the right). Reduce speed.
#12. This sign alerts you to:
Low Clearance. You are approaching a low bridge or underpass. Do not enter if your vehicle or cargo exceeds the maximum height indicated on the sign.
#13. This sign means:
Divided highway ahead. The highway ahead is divided into two one-way roadways. Divided highways have a center strip that separates traffic going in opposite directions. The first sign is posted before a divided highway begins.
#14. This warning sign means:
Two-way Traffic. This sign tells you that you are leaving a divided roadway and will be driving on a two-way highway. The sign may also be posted along such a roadway to remind you of oncoming traffic in the left lane.
#15. What does this sign mean?
Double Arrow. Traffic is permitted to pass on either side of an island, obstruction, or gore in the roadway. Traffic separated by this sign may either rejoin or change directions.
#16. What does this Large Arrow sign mark?
The One-Direction Large Arrow sign is used either as a supplement or alternative to the Chevron signs. It can also be used to supplement a Turn or Reverse Turn sign. The sign is not used in roundabouts, at the beginnings and ends of medians or at center piers.
#17. This sign warns you of:
The road surface changes ahead from a hard-surfaced pavement to a low-type surface or earth road.
#18. What does this sign mean?
Added lane sign. Two roadways come together, but you are not required to merge. An additional lane begins. The added lane sign is normally visible from both roadways. There could also be a sign placed on the side of each roadway.

Stop sign ahead. When you come to this sign, slow down to be ready to stop at the stop sign.

Difficult Signs on the Driver’s License Test
Many licensed drivers in the United States fail to recognize the meanings of some common road signs they see daily. In some cases, it also means that licensed drivers would fail their license knowledge test if they were forced to re-take the exam.
Teenagers with no driving experience also have difficulties with some of the most common road signs. It is usually because they haven’t figured out the universal language of road signs.
In fact, very few first-time applicants get the perfect score on their first DMV test, even though road signs probably are the easiest part of the written test.
Quiz-A-Go-Go has put together this quiz with some of the most difficult signs because knowing road signs and their meanings is essential for safety on our highways.
Any driver who gets behind the wheel is responsible for knowing all signs and their meanings. Disobeying a road sign just because you didn’t understand it may be costly and put yourself and others at risk of an accident.
Some signs in this quiz may never show up on a DMV test, but if you aim to be the best driver you can be, you should learn them. In a real-life situation, they can be difficult to interpret. By knowing them, you can avoid unnecessary mistakes.
In this quiz, you will see some signs confusing many test takers on the actual license or permit test. On average, they miss six out of the 20 signs.

Which are the Most Important Signs on the DMV Test?
DMV will not ask you to identify the most difficult signs. They are well aware that many students will fail to recognize them.
Instead, DMV will focus on common signs you must recognize.
Failing to stop at a Stop sign is, for example, not only an offense, but it also puts you and others in danger. DMV often has a question about what you must do at a stop sign, and you should note that rolling stop is not enough, even if the way is clear.
Questions about Yield signs and Railroad Crossing signs are also common. Note that the RR Crossing sign is a warning sign, but it has the same meaning as a Yield sign, and sometimes it can be combined with a Stop sign.
Two other warning signs you must know are Divided Highway and Divided Highway Ends. At first glance, they look the same, and it can be easy to miss one of them on a test. Ensure you can tell them apart.
Obviously, the Speed Limit sign is also one you must recognize. The black and white sign must be obeyed at all times. Some states have special rules about exceeding the speed limit when passing other vehicles, but most states will not allow speeding under any circumstances.
Some Speeds signs are yellow or orange. Do you know why?
If you have studied your driver’s manual, you know that yellow and orange are colors that display a warning. They are not regulatory, but you should obey them for your own safety.
