In addition to learning about road signs and rules of the road, new drivers must study New Mexico traffic signals in preparation for the 2024 DMV written test. While traffic lights will likely only account for a small percentage of the questions on your MVD test paper, it is important to keep in mind that there is no way to know which traffic lights will be addressed. To find out whether your traffic signal knowledge is up to the challenge of the general knowledge permit test, try answering some traffic light test questions with this NM drivers license practice test. Unlike most revision tools aimed at new motorists studying for the New Mexico DMV test, this handy little DMV practice permit test contains nothing but signal-related questions!

Like all the resources we provide, this NM traffic lights test comes with unlimited re-sits and is completely free to use. The practice driving test for New Mexico residents presents 20 traffic signal questions and answers, which are ‘true or false’ or multiple-choice in style. This means that only one of the MVD written test answers listed with each question is correct. Choosing 16 correct answers in a single round will prompt the NM DMV practice test to award you a passing grade. This works out as an 80% minimum pass requirement, which is marginally harder than the pass requirement on the real DMV permit test. While working on this beginner’s traffic signals test, keep in mind that you are free to look up information in the traffic lights chapter of the New Mexico written test study guide. As you become more confident with the study material, you will have less and less trouble answering questions on your own. To help you work through the NM driving test practice quiz as quickly as possible, our team has installed two study aids which you can use to answer questions instead of looking up information in the drivers manual. The ‘hint’ study aid generates clues about the correct MVD test answers, while the ‘50/50’ study aid removes some incorrect solutions. Both tools are available for unlimited access during every traffic test question on the NM drivers practice test.

In the weeks leading up to the DMV test for New Mexico residents, you will also need to learn about rules of the road, road signs and pavement markings. As this traffic lights test only contains material relating to signals and lights, you should use one of our other NM drivers test practice quizzes to support your study of these subjects. Elsewhere on, you will find a dedicated DMV practice test signs quiz, several entry-level tests that address all topics and a 25-question MVD cheat sheet. To ensure complete preparation for the DMV test and the best chances of passing first time, you should aim to complete and pass every quiz we offer before facing the challenge of the real exam.

This New Mexico driver’s manual practice test and the other revision tools we offer are designed as supporting resources, for use alongside the official drivers manual. It is impossible to predict precisely which traffic signal questions you will be asked during the permit test, but we can guarantee that the information needed to answer all of them can be found in this comprehensive manual. There are more NM traffic lights in the manual than there are DMV practice permit test questions on this quiz, which is why we have programmed the test to generate a different set of 20 traffic light questions each time you hit the ‘start’ button. Try to pass the quiz as many times as possible before moving on to a different subject.
