Rhode Island Road Signs and Traffic Signals Test

Do you know the difference between a warning sign and a regulatory sign? What about how to handle an unregulated T-intersection? All of this and more will be on your RI permit or license exam—so make sure you know the answers! Our FREE RI traffic signs and signals practice test helps you learn quickly and efficiently, rather than wasting hours re-reading the same pages of a handbook. Instead, let our proven study methods increase your memory retention so that you’ll be able to recall the different Rhode Island state and federal road signs, traffic signals, and right-of-way laws for both.

Because each state’s traffic signs are unique, we make sure that our online Rhode Island road signs and signals practice test is uniquely designed for RI drivers, with accurate, state-specific, and up-to-date sample questions pulled right from the DMV’s driver handbook. When you’re through studying with our free RI practice exam, you’ll know how to safely and correctly approach all types of traffic signals, intersections, railroad crossings, and more, as well as how to recognize and tell the difference between road signs such as service signs, construction signs, hazard signs, and more.

Our free Rhode Island practice test includes 25 multiple-choice questions (just like the format of your real test!). You’ll be able to see actual explanations from the DMV handbook with each answer, with instant feedback as you go and a full review at the end so you can get an eye on which questions you may have missed. Use the review to plan your next study session, then come back and track how well you’re progressing until it’s time to take your Rhode Island license or permit exam!

Rhode Island Road Signs and Traffic Signals Test FAQs:

Is the Rhode Island road signs and signals test different from the RI driver’s license test?

The Rhode Island traffic signs and signals test isn’t a separate exam from your standard license or permit test. Rather, it’s a part of the full permit exam, and questions on road signs and traffic signals may be sprinkled in throughout all of the questions, or separated as their own section within your test.

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

To pass your road signs and signals portion of the Rhode Island license test, you’ll need to be able to recognize both state and interstate road signs and their meanings, as well as accurately identify traffic signals and the proper process for driving through them.

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

Yes! The questions on this practice test were taken directly from the Rhode Island driver’s manual, which is the very same source that the RI DMV uses to create its official license test.
