If you're about to get a driver's license or learner's permit in the state of Maryland, you'll have to demonstrate a working knowledge of Maryland road signs during both the written road laws exams as well as the driving skills test. It's always a good idea to take a Maryland Road Sign Practice Test before taking the final exam to get your driver's license. Some road signs may seem really easy. For example, almost everyone knows what a stop sign is, but the exam might require you to know more information. For instance: how long you have to stop, whether rolling stops are acceptable or what to do if another driver at the intersection stops at the same time as you. The practice test can help you learn what to do in these situations and how to answer the questions so that you'll ace the exam on the first try.

Who Should Take the Practice Test

Taking a Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Administration Road Sign Practice Test is a good idea for anyone who is a new driver or a driver from another state as they will need to take the road sign test prior to licensing. If you expect to take the road laws test or an in-vehicle test, you should also take a practice test, because it can help you pass the exam on the big day.

The Maryland Traffic Sign Practice Test

The Maryland traffic sign practice test mimics the actual exam, testing you on road and traffic signs and making sure you know not only what they mean, but what is required of you to adequately comply with the signs. There are over 50 signs in the test, and 25 signs are randomly chosen for the exam, so taking practice tests is a good way to make sure you're well versed in the signs, what they mean and how to obey them. Taking a Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Administration Traffic Sign Practice Test will help you differentiate different signs and signals you might find in Maryland, as well as the practical implications of compliance. Using the Maryland Driver's License Handbook can help you study what the signs mean and look up a sign that might have you stumped.
