Michigan Road Signs and Traffic Signals Test

Quick—what’s the difference between a warning sign and a guide sign? Who has the right of way at an uncontrolled intersection? What do red flashing traffic lights mean? Knowing all of your Michigan road signs and traffic signals is a huge part of passing your MI permit or license exam—so don’t leave it to chance! Take our FREE MI traffic signs and signals practice test, created specifically for Michigan drivers using the most accurate and up-to-date info straight from the MI Secretary of State.

Our state-specific Michigan road signs and traffic signals practice test was uniquely designed to help you identify and remember MI traffic signals and road signs quickly and efficiently, as well as learn how to approach and safely maneuver through them. You’ll need to know how to deal with four-way intersections, who has the right of way at a broken traffic light, what a hazard sign is, and more. Make sure you’re fully prepared before scheduling your SOS permit or license exam!

This 25-question MI practice test includes real sample questions and answers from the SOS driver’s handbook. The questions are randomly generated, so you’ll get a new test every time you take it, making sure you’re covering all of your bases as you study. The multiple-choice format is the very same as the real test with the Secretary of State, and you’ll get detailed explanations with each answer so you can have the full context for what you’re learning. Review any missed questions at the end to understand which signs and signals you need more practice on. Take this test multiple times to track your progress and get new questions every time (it’s always free!)—that way, you’ll know just when you’re fully prepared to earn your Michigan permit or driver’s license!

Michigan Road Signs and Traffic Signals Test FAQs:

How is the Michigan road signs test different from the driver’s license exam?

Good news: it’s actually not! The Michigan traffic signs and signals test is a part of the full MI SOS license or permit test. Depending on how the SOS structures its test from year to year, it may be its own section of the license exam, or you may find traffic signal questions sprinkled throughout all of the test questions.

What do I need to pass my Michigan road signs and traffic signals exam?

To pass your road signs and signals portion of the Michigan license or permit test, you’ll need to correctly identify road signs, including speed limit signs, construction signs, warning signs, and more. You’ll also need to know how to safely approach and pass through signals like traffic lights, roundabouts, and intersections.

Does this practice test have the same questions as the actual Michigan permit and license exam?

Yes! The questions on this practice test were taken directly from the Michigan driver’s handbook, which is the very same source the SOS uses to create its official license test.
