You may think your knowledge of road signs and pavement markings is up-to-scratch already.

Most road signs are considerably more obscure than those mentioned above, relying primarily on a code of shapes, colors and symbols to communicate with motorists. Plus, there are literally dozens of different regulatory signs, warning signs, guide signs and work zone signs in the DMV database, any of which could be addressed during the VT permit test. If you are keen to earn your learner’s permit and get on the road as soon as possible, it is important to understand that you cannot cut corners where road signs and pavement markings are concerned.
