This California road signs practice test is built around 20 multiple choice questions.  This is a topical exam, which means you will not see any questions on traffic laws, driving rules or regulations - this is about road signs and road signs only. Every question on the practice test has three or four possible answers, yet only one of them is correct.  Be sure to read through all of the available options before making your selection, you will not be able to correct your answer once you choose it.  Don't worry if you happen not to answer all of the questions correctly the first time you take this DMV traffic signs test, remember that this is practice and the more you practice, the better you get.  Whenever you miss a DMV road signs question, we will show you the right answer immediately.  Feel free to note it down, but remember that you will be provided with an opportunity to review all of the questions you miss at the end of the exam. 

Quite a few students ask how much time they should expect to invest into this free CA DMV road sign test.  Unfortunately, there is no definitive answer we could give you.  We designed this practice test to be quick and efficient, and you can study whenever you have five minutes to spare: on the ride to school, during your lunch break, before you go to bed.  Five minutes is all it takes to complete the California road sign test once, but how many times do you need to take it before you are good to go to the next practice test?  We recommend that you use your grades as a marker and don't stop working on the traffic signs quiz until you can answer 18 our of 20 questions correctly.  We know this grade is marginally higher than the DMV requires you to get in order to be issued with a drivers permit, but you really don't want to be walking on the edge, where a single missed question can mean the difference between passing and failing.  Play it safe, answer at least 18 questions on this 2016 CA DMV road signs test!

Looking for even more ways to prepare for the DMV permit test?  Grab yourself a copy of the drivers manual! The book contains a comprehensive California road signs study sheet you could even print out and post it on the wall next to your desk, so the signs are always in front of you.  The list of traffic signs you will find in the permit test study guide is identical to the list of signs you can expect on the actual DMV exam, the entire written test is based on this book and you cannot find a better study aid when studying for the exam.  Combine reading the handbook with taking this free California DMV road signs practice test and watch the magic happen!

Those who have happened to complete a drivers education program (and if you are under 18 years of age, there is no bypassing of this step), you need not to worry about the manual.  Every certified and state-approved California drivers education program contains a separate section on traffic signs that teaches you everything you need to know to pass the DMV sign test the first time (provided you actually paid attention while taking drivers ed classes).  Now you just need to brush up on your driving chops, so take this free California DMV road signs practice test (CA) 2016 and off you go to your permit test appointment!  Good luck!
