Florida Driving Test
Sep 29th, 2010 by JuannyCinco

Recently I was once again lamenting the fact that I share the road with Floridians.  I tell you – these people don’t know how to drive!  I’ve discussed vehicles and the Un-Roadworthy but this time I’ve come armed with new facts.

What are these facts?

The Florida DMV simply doesn’t care about the rules of the road, the laws of the land, or the simple set of followable instructions that would make everyone’s journey on the various random road-surfaces of Florida safe.  I guess I should punctuate that as random road-surfaces.

How did I come to determine this?  Look at their homepage. They cover habitual offenders, avoiding road-rage (no doubt important here in the land of sunshine and blue-hairs), double traffic fines (because tickets are now big business overtaking safety as a primary concern of the venerable-FHP), SENIOR DRIVER Safety Programs (How about not letting them drive?) What about EVERYONE ELSE’s Safety programs ?   Then of course we cover Sales Tax and paying for your registration.  What else? Oh yes, they also cover Vanity plates.

(Actually this is famously NOT a vanity plate but a real random plate)

Seems they cover ever things about making money but nowhere do they seem to cover anything related to what specifically are the LAWS of the road.

Luckily, after much research I found the laws of Florida driving – and I can now share some of the laws of signage with you!  See if you can match the answer to the sign/light.

Sign 1

A. When the red light is showing you cannot turn right
B. When the red light is showing you might be able to turn right
C. When the red light is showing you can still go left.

Sign 2

A. The center lane is shared and can be used to overtake
B. The center lane can be used to turn left across traffic
C. The center lane is a swerve lane used to avoid accidents

Sign 3

A.  Come to a complete halt before continuing
B.  Come to a rolling stop before continuing if driving a police car
C.  Ohers will STOP for you so move on

Sign 4

A. Yield to the left
B. You have right of way so continue yielding to the right
C. Come to a complete STOP and look confused for a while.  Pull out randomly

Sign 5

A. Watch for pedestrians
B. 10 points!
C. Both A & B

Sign 6

A. Campgrounds are ahead
B. The Seminole Hard Rock Casino isn’t as plush as I remember
C. The Seminole Tee-Pee Casino ahead

Sign 7

A. Stop! We’ve reached the hunting ground
B. Santa lives here in the Winter.  Beware of Prancer.
C. Beware deer because in a collision the dear die but your car doesn’t do much better

Sign 8

A. Speed up – this road doubles as a rollercoaster
B. No Skoal is available here, only the generic brand
C. The DOT has run out of money and didn’t fix this part of the road

Wasn’t that fun?


B, B, A, A, C (ok, it’s A), A, C, A (is the closest answer)
