Florida Road Signs 2
If you have completed a defensive driving course, you may be able to save on your auto insurance premiums when buying a new or used car either by financing, leasing or through bank car loan.
Regulatory signs control traffic; they set limits or give commands and are enforceable by law. Warning Signs give you advance notice of possible hazards. Drive with caution. You will be asked to identify roadway signs on the Florida Permit Test.
Florida DMV Test
If you’re a Florida resident fifteen years or older, you are eligible to apply for a Florida driver’s license, but if you are under the age of eighteen, you will first take the Florida written DMV test and receive a permit, with which you will be allowed to practice driving under the supervision of a legal driver who is at least twenty-one years of age.
There are a lot of numbers associated with the Florida DMV test, but here’s another one. When you are driving in Florida, you are not only driving with fellow residents but copious tourists. In 2017 alone, there were an estimated 116.5 million tourists in Florida. This is almost six times the amount of people who call Florida home, and while not all visitors will drive while visiting, a lot of them do, and they certainly add to the traffic.
Because a visitor doesn’t know the laws as a resident does, they may not follow them. And because a visitor doesn’t know the roads, they may get lost easily and drive slower. These are the people you will be driving among once you get your Florida license.
When you’re ready to take your Florida DMV test, don’t fall into the trap of thinking that you don’t have to know everything. Study the rules in the driver’s handbook. Pay attention to the road signs while you’re riding in another person’s car. Don’t pay too much attention to what other drivers think is right, but make sure that you know the true meaning of the state’s laws and road signs for yourself. Watch other drivers, but know that they could very well be visiting the state, and may not know all the laws.
