Illinois Permit Test No. 4 - Passing score: 80%
35 questions for your Illinois permit exam. And this is just one of many IL FREE permit practice tests waiting for you here.
The passing score in Illinois is 80%. It means you should answer at least 28 out of 35 questions correctly to pass this practice test. The safest tactic, however, is to aim for a full score. Take as many tests as you need to feel comfortable with all answers. Learn by your mistakes. If needed, use the DMV Rules of the Road and read up on the facts.
What You Need to Know about Road Signs
A question about the shapes or colors of Illinois road signs is likely to appear on your DMV permit practice test, and may also appear your real written exam. The idea is that you should be able to recognize signs from a distance and act correctly, even if the sign is barely visible.
Diamond shaped signs are perhaps most important. They warn you of possible hazards on or close to the road. If you aren't sure about the message on the sign, the shape and the colors yellow (for general warning) or orange (indicates a work zone) should tell you to slow down and be extra alert.
A circular shaped sign is placed on the side of the road when you approach a railroad crossing. It is the only circular sign in Illinois and United States. Slow down and be prepared to stop, if necessary. Be aware that some vehicles ALWAYS stop at railroad crossings.
Yield signs and stop signs are also easy to identify by their unique shape.
