The Written Knowledge Test for Your Georgia Permit
The Georgia driver’s knowledge exam has 40 test questions separated in two parts:
1 20 road signs questions
2 20 road rules questions
The second part checks your knowledge of common road rules, Georgia traffic laws, and safe driving practices. You are also supposed to know about distracted and impaired driving, including the laws about drinking and driving and how alcohol affects you.
To pass the exam, you need 15 correct answers on each part (75%). You will not pass if you have 20 correct answers on the road-signs part and only 10 on the road-rules part.
Learning Georgia Road Signs and Their Meanings for Your Learner’s Permit
The road signs you need to learn for your Georgia learner’s permit are all described in the Georgia Drivers Manual . Always make sure you have the latest version of the manual.
There are more than 70 road signs mentioned in the manual. You should know them by name and how to act or react when you see any of them on Georgia highways.
Road signs are posted to keep you and other road users safe. They communicate messages to drivers and pedestrians to help traffic flow smoothly and reduce accidents. Neglecting or not understanding the meaning of a road sign can be dangerous.
Most signs today use symbols instead of words, so they can be understood by drivers who speak another language. Georgia, however, still used many signs with word messages. For this reason, it is important that you understand basic English.
You should also know that the road-signs part of the exam is in English only.
Remember that you will find even more signs on Georgia roads than the ones described in you manual, some less common but still important for your safety on the road.
This is not the Real Road Sign Test
Even if some of these questions may show up on your real knowledge exam at Georgia Department of Driver Services, this is not the real test. It is published only to help you study and learn the most common signs.
