This Virginia road sign practice test addresses all of the important signs described in the manual and that you are expected to know, including the use of shapes, colors, and symbols.

The test has 10 random questions drawn from a pool of more than 100 questions. You can take the test several times to make sure you have a solid knowledge of all signs that can show up on your test.
