What is the Road and Sign Test?

The Road & Sign Test is the 2nd and final step on your way to getting your driver's permit. Once you have completed your TLSAE (Drug and Alcohol Course) the next step is to take an exam that covers Florida road signs and road rules. The DMV Road & Sign test (also known as the Permit Test) is available online. Teen’s 15 to 17 years old with a parent/guardian proctor nearby to proctor the test (that just means they have to watch you while you take the test). Anyone over the age of 18 who needs to take the DMV Test must take it at a local DMV Office.

This exam consists of 50 questions. There are 45 questions on road rules and 5 questions on road signs. You must correctly answer 40 out of 50 questions to pass. The passing score for the exam is 80%. Through the FL-DHSMV you are allowed a total of 60 minutes to complete the Road & Sign exam. Your exam scores are electronically reported to the Florida DHSMV and will be available in the state system when you go to your local office to get your permit.

When taking the exam you are allowed 3 attempts to pass the exam online. If you fail your 1st or 2nd attempt at the exam, you may attempt the test again. However there will be a state required Florida DHSMV assessed retesting fee of $20 for your 2nd and 3rd attempts. If you fail your 3rd attempt at an online exam, you will have to go to your local DHSMV or tax collector office. At those locations you will be required to take a handwritten based version of the test. The online testing version will no longer be available to you.

Getting a learner's permit in Florida means you have driving privileges, but they are restricted. Once you've obtained your permit you are required to do the following when operating a motor vehicle:
  • At all times you must be accompanied by a licensed driver in the front passenger seat. This driver must be 21 years of age or older.
  • For the first 3 months after the date you received your permit, you can only drive during daylight hours.
  • After the first 3 months, you may drive between the hours of 6:00 am and 10:00 pm.
  • If you are under 18 you must keep your learners permit for 1 year before getting your operator’s license.
  • If you are over 18 you can get your operator’s license immediately after taking the required TLSAE course and DMV exam.
It is extremely important that you understand all the road signs you could encounter on Florida roads and highways in order to successfully pass your exam, and to be a safe and responsible driver.
