South Carolina Road Signs and Traffic Signals Test FAQs:

How is the South Carolina road signs and signals test different from the regular SC driver's license or permit test?

It’s not! The South Carolina traffic signs and signals test isn’t actually a separate exam from your normal license or permit test. Instead, it’s a part of the full exam, with questions on road signs and traffic signals sprinkled throughout the entirety of the test. Sometimes, they may be separated into their own section of the exam, but you’ll still answer those at the same time as the other questions on your SC license or permit test.

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

To pass your road signs and signals portion of the South Carolina permit or 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 South Carolina permit and license exam?

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