What to Expect on the Virginia Driver's Knowledge Exam

Before you take your Virginia driver’s license test it’s best that you do some practicing first; after all, getting your license for the first time is a big deal. If you want to ace the tests across the board on your first try don’t think it’s impossible instead think ahead. By taking practice tests before the official exam you’re taking the responsible initiative in being well prepared for a rather difficult driving test. But don’t worry because below are four elements outlined for you to practice for the knowledge exam.

Traffic Signals, Signs, & Pavement Markings

You see traffic signals, signs, pavement markings, and work zones every day. These signals, signs, and markings regulate and communicate directions and messages to direct the flow of traffic. It’s very important to familiarize yourself with these road signs because each one has its own special meaning. Knowing when you can make a legal left turn at a red traffic signal is definitely a question you want to know how to answer.

Safe Driving

Do know why you should keep your hands at 8 o’clock and 4 o’clock on the steering wheel? You’re going to be expected to know why hand position on the steering wheel is a safe driving technique. From proper stopping, speed limits, when to stop for school buses, yielding, changing lanes, and checking blind spots these are some of the road rules you’ll be quizzed on.

Seat Belts, Airbags, & Child Safety

In Virginia, it is against the law for the driver, front seat passengers, and those under 18 to not be in seat belts. On top of knowing how to properly secure a seat belt familiarize yourself with airbags and how to properly install a child car seat.

Alcohol & The Law

In the U.S., drinking and driving have severe punishment if police have probable cause you’re under alcohol influence or find an open alcohol container in the vehicle. In order to prove you are well aware of these laws don’t skim through this portion of the Virginia driver’s manual.

Now that you know what to expect on the driver’s license test, let’s put that knowledge to practice. At Driver Knowledge, we have many free practice road rules and road signs test for you. Explore our driver resources today and contact us if you have any additional questions.
