Tennessee Road Signs and Traffic Signals Test FAQs:

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

The Tennessee traffic signs and signals test is a part of the full DOS license or permit test. Depending on how the DOS 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 Tennessee road signs and traffic signals exam?

To pass your road signs and signals portion of the Tennessee license 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 Tennessee permit and license exam?

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