It is impossible to predict exactly which road rule and road sign knowledge you will be questioned on during the Idaho permit test. However, we can say that at least one third of the permit test will focus on road signs and pavement markings. These subjects are given priority on the assessment, as it is impossible to drive safely without being able to read road signs and pavement markings. If you are wondering which road signs and pavement markings you need to study in preparation for the Idaho driving test, you have come to the right place! Scroll down this page a little way, and you will find a complete list of all the road signs and pavement markings in the DMV database. You’re welcome!

This comprehensive list of road signs and pavement markings is not the only DMV written test support we offer here on We also provide a free road signs DMV practice test, with real driving test questions from Idaho exam papers. Plus, a 2024 driver’s education course for Idaho applicants, to help you get to grips with pavement markings and road signs for the permit test. The study of road signs is a little more complex than simply memorizing a few common road signs. At least, it is if you are hoping to perform well during the DMV test! Individual road signs may appear unique at first glance, but they are actually constructed using a “code” of symbols, letters, colors and shapes. When you know how to read the code, you can interpret the meaning of any road sign you encounter on the Idaho DMV permit test, and while you are learning to drive. This will also help you to recognize and respond to many important road signs from a distance. For example, you may see a yellow diamond-shaped sign on the side of the road quite far ahead. You do not need to be close enough to see the symbol within the sign before you act, as you know that all yellow diamonds are warning signs. Thus, you can start to reduce your speed and drive with care, before the warning sign comes fully into view.

To help you understand the language of colors, shapes and symbols that connect United States road signs, we have included a module dedicated to the subject on our free drivers ed course for Idaho learners. Reading through “Signs, Signals & Markings” a couple of times prior to the permit test will substantially improve your chances of earning a passing grade on the exam first time. Every module of our course includes fantastic images, detailed explanations and a ton of useful hints and tips which could help you during the assessment.

As you start to feel more confident in your knowledge of warning signs, regulatory signs, guide signs, work zone signs and pavement markings, you should reinforce what you have learned by using our free road signs practice drivers test for Idaho students. This is one of many free self-assessment tools available for unlimited access here on While most of our quizzes contain an impressive mix of realistic multiple-choice questions, just like the real permit test, the road signs DMV practice test is a little different. This comprehensive quiz does not contain any permit test questions relating to rules of the road, making it the perfect tool to put your road sign and pavement marking knowledge to the test.
