See all Pass the Permit Test Topics


To pass the Permit Test you must be able to read and understand Road Signs and Pavement Markings. We have organized the Road Signs into the categories as they appear in the Florida Drivers Handbook.

We recommend you review all the signs and spend a little extra time on those that you don't instantly understand.

Florida Road Signs and Pavement Markings - Guides and Practice Tests

  • Caution Zones

    Caution zone signs alert you to things like a school crossing, a railroad crossing, a drawbridge, or construction. Understanding caution zone signs is critical for your safety and the safety or people in school cross walks, and construction zones. In addition, as speeding fines are doubled in School Zones and Construction you should follow the posted speed limits.

  • Regulatory Signs

    Regulatory signs are the most common sign you encounter daily. They control traffic; they set limits or give commands and are enforceable by law.

  • Pavement Markings

    Pavement Markings are lines, symbols, and words that are painted on roadways to help direct drivers and control traffic flow. You must know what the different lines, colors, and symbols mean and obey them.

  • Warning Signs

    Warning signs give you advance notice of possible hazards and alert you to drive with caution.
