What you need to know
You may have seen various signs mixed in with NWT’s scenery, but now it's time for you to understand them all to get to the best our roads have to offer! You need to be able to recognize all these signs to stay safe on the road. This practice test offers 30 multiple-choice questions, written in a very similar manner to those on the actual NWT knowledge exam, that cover not only road signs but also general road rules, so be sure you study all relevant sections in the NWT Driver Handbook. For each question you’ll receive an optional hint and an explanation. Each question you answer incorrectly will be stored in your Challenge Bank so you can revisit it later. Good luck!
