Why Take the United States Road Sign Practice Test
It’s important to know the various types of road signs you will encounter while driving, that’s why road signs are a critical part of the driving permit test as well as the written test portion of the driving exam. Regardless of your state, you will have to be able to successfully pass your road signs test. The major categories of road signs are:
- Regulatory Signs, usually black text on white background, dictate rules of driving such as speed limit and one-way signs.
- Warning Signs, usually black text on a yellow background, give you notice of issues coming up on the road such as a need to merge into another lane or a sharp curve ahead.
- Informative Signs, usually white text on a blue background, provide information on things such as parking locations or an upcoming rest area.
In addition to those three major categories mentioned above, you may also be presented with recreation signs (white text on brown background) which might indicate state parks or hiking trails nearby; construction signs which could list any number of temporary road condition and are always black text on an orange background; and guide signs (white text on green background) which provide directions such as street names and lane indicators for highway interchanges.
