Preparing for the Mississippi Road Sign Test

Mississippi gives every person over the age of 16 and 1/2 the right to take the driver's license examination. Once you successfully pass both the written test and the driving test, you can legally drive a motor vehicle. Younger drivers must hold a temporary permit for a minimum of six months before taking the exam, but older drivers can apply for a license without obtaining a permit first.

Drivers License Requirements

Like most states, Mississippi has a series of requirements in place that you must meet before applying for a license and taking the written and driving tests. Those requirements include:
  • You must reside in the state.
  • You must be 16 and 1/2 or older.
  • You must present a valid photo ID.

The Mississippi Department of Public Safety Road Sign Practice Test

Studying and taking a Mississippi traffic sign practice test is an important part of preparing yourself for the actual test. The Mississippi Driver's Manual covers many of the basic road and traffic signs that you might see on your final test, including warning signs, guide signs, traffic signs and indicators that you might see on other vehicles. The Mississippi Driver's Manual also includes other basic information that you need when taking the written test. You'll learn what to do when you come to a railroad crossing, how far back you need to park from a fire hydrant and what to do if an ambulance is behind you. The manual includes other informative tips on how to make wide turns, what to do when following another vehicle and when to use your signals.

Preparing to Pass Your Test

Make sure that you can pass your driver's test by taking the Mississippi Department of Public Safety Traffic Sign Practice Test first. Consisting of 25 questions, the test will randomly select signs from the more than 50 traffic and road signs available, and if you take the test more than once, you'll find different signs appearing each time. This free test is available for those who want to prepare for the real test and those who want to test their knowledge. Taking a Mississippi road sign practice test can help you get a better score when you take your actual test to obtain a license.
