The 25-question knowledge test

#1. This sign tells you:

No Left Turn: Left turns are against the law. In Virginia, U-turns are considered two left turns and are also illegal if this sign is posted.


#2. What does this sign mean?

Stop sign ahead. When you come to this sign, you should slow down and be ready to stop at the stop sign ahead.


#3. This road sign indicates:

Low clearance sign: The overpass ahead has a low clearance. Do not proceed if your vehicle is taller than the height shown on the sign.


#4. What does this sign mean?

Winding Road. The road ahead winds with a series of turns or curves. On all curves, slow down for better control.


#5. This sign indicates:

The color orange marks a work zone and means slow down and be alert.


#6. What does this sign mean?

Slippery when wet.

When pavement is wet, reduce your speed. Do not brake hard or change direction suddenly. Increase the distance between your car and the one ahead of you.


#7. This road sign means:

Reduced speed limit ahead: Prepare to reduce your speed. The speed limit is changing ahead.


#8. This road sign indicates:

Divided highway begins. The highway ahead is split into two separate roadways by a median or divider and each roadway is one-way. Keep right.


#9. Which shape is used for stop signs?

Octagon (Stop): This eight-sided shape always means stop. You must come to a complete stop at the sign, stop line, pedestrian crosswalk, or curb. Wait for any vehicle or pedestrian to clear the way.

The color and shape of a traffic sign communicates important information about the sign’s message. In poor visibility conditions, such as heavy fog, you may be able to make out only the shape of a sign. As you approach a sign and while still distant, you may see the color long before you can read the message or see the symbol, giving you some advance information.


#10. What does this sign mean?

If you drive past the wrong way sign you are going in the wrong direction and could get into a head-on crash with vehicles headed your way. Cautiously turn around.
