You’ve probably spent years seeing various signs mixed in with California’s roadside scenery, but you’ll need to understand them all to get to the best our roads have to offer. You might see a steep incline sign if you decide to tackle the North San Marcos Road in Santa Barbara, or winding road signs on Palomar Mountain Road between LA and San Diego, or hairpin turn signs if you decide to tackle Mulholland Drive. You need to be able to recognize all these signs to stay safe on the road. This practice test consists of 50 multiple-choice questions, written in a very similar manner to those on the actual DMV written exam, that cover not only road signs but also general road rules, so be sure you study all relevant sections in the 2023 California Driver Handbook. You’ll receive an explanation for each question, and each question you answer incorrectly will be stored in your Challenge Bank so you can revisit it later. As with all our other tests, this practice test requires no information from you, can be revisited anytime and retaken as many times as you want (the questions will shuffle each time), and is available 24/7. Soon, you’ll be able to recognize every road sign and be confident in every road rule situation. Good luck!
