Traffic Signs and their Significance

Posted On : 2/23/2018


It’s true that most people aren’t much concerned about traffic signs when they are just beginning to learn to drive. It’s understandable that placing one’s feet on the correct pedals at the right time is more important in that moment.

But we know that Traffic Signs is a part of your UK driving theory test, so you will have to spend some time on getting a grasp on it.

Also, besides your test preparation, knowledge of traffic signs is significant and goes a long way in helping you drive confidently in your future.

So, what is a traffic sign?

A traffic sign tells you about some instructions that need to be followed while you are driving on the road. Now there can be many symbols and some of them with very minute differences.

Usually, the speed limits are shown by black numbers on a circular white shape with a border in red colour. The exception to this is the National Speed Limit which is the default speed limit displayed as a plain white circular sign with a black diagonal line.

For example, if you see two signs, one in red-and-white and other in blue, along with a number (let’s say 40) in the center, then the former would mean that one should not drive at more than 40 kilometers per hour, and the latter would tell one to go at a minimum 40 kilometers per hour – this is usually seen where slow-moving vehicles would hamper the flow of traffic, such as in tunnels.

How to prepare for Traffic Signs?

To build such confidence in your DVSA theory test, the best way is to subscribe to a plan of your choice on our site and begin preparing by practising via mock tests.
