Traffic Signs

A significant number of questions will focus on traffic signs. You will need to tell the difference between colors, shapes and intentions. Signs are used to guide drivers to different roads or indicate a number of upcoming events, such as: turns, merged lanes, highway ramps and much more. Test how well you know the road signs with the Sample Driver’s Practice Test above.

Pavement Markings

You have already seen pavement markings – dashes, double lines, and single lines that come in yellow or white. But do you know what they mean? To be a safe driver, the MA DMV needs to verify that you know how to read pavement markings.

Take the DMV sample test to see how well you know these road lines:

  • Lane separations
  • No passing zones
  • Edges of the roadway
  • Turning lanes
  • Reversible lanes
  • One-way roads
  • Bicycle lanes
  • Sharrows (shared-use lanes)

Inclement Weather

Inclement weather can be anything from slight rain to heavy snowfall or hail. If driving in conditions that are less than perfect, you need to be able to handle your vehicle in a safe way. Review the chapters that discuss driving in inclement weather to know how to maneuver your vehicle if any of the following situations happen:

  • Driving with wet brakes
  • Brake failure
  • Blown tires
  • Engine malfunction
  • Skidding
  • Jammed gas pedals
