A couple of weeks ago, we challenged you to take a shot at a written driving test. The test wasn't designed for rocket scientists, but a few of you justifiably complained about the confusing verbiage in some of the questions, and the fact that some laws vary from state to state. Yeah, some of you flunked.

Moving forward, the folks over at AutoInsurance.org have offered us a new exam -- based simply on road signs. This should be easy. After all, road signs are designed to be comprehended at a glace, day or night, in rain or shine, even if English is your fourth language.

Toss your apprehensions aside. This 19-question quiz won't bewilder or baffle you with a superfluity of words, and the pictographs generally mean the same thing in all municipalities. So no excuses this time... Go ahead, take the quiz.

      Yay 100%. No surprise since I only took my real test a couple months ago.
      • 5 Years Ago
      95% - I've never seen that "traffic on both sides" sign before. Otherwise, except maybe for the HazMat sign, it's not too difficult to figure out any of those.

      On the subject of the pavement ending, you'd be surprised how capable a Hyundai Sonata is offroad when there's no room to turn around.

        haha...I learned that same thing about my Bonneville too. I felt like it was a jeep or something.

      Looks like almost everyone here got high scores.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Another above average score! Bring on more tests.
      • 5 Years Ago
      100% You should be ashamed if you can't figure them out.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Same problems here. We don't use HM and the sign for the arrows left and right is actually just the "stay right of obstruction" sign except there are arrows going to both sides of the island. Really, it makes a million times more sense.

        I also find it funny that you guys don't use solely pictograms. Makes me think of the Top Gear review of the Caddy CTS where everything is labelled in English despite the fact that people who speak German, Italian, French, Spanish, etc would just as easily be buying the car. Especially given the percentage of Americans who speak Spanish.

      100%. Not bad, as I have only been driving for 45 years.
      • 5 Years Ago
      100%. Yay!

      100%. Might not have gotten the HM one, except we just happen to have a local highway with that sign (or rather, the crossed-out version of it).
