List of Traffic Signs in the Philippines

To get a DRIVER'S LICENSE in the Philippines, you need to pass the LTO (Land Transporatation Office) Driver's License Exam. And part of that exam is identifying the traffic signs and road signs in the Philippines. If you want to pass the exam and get a high score, you need to study the common traffic/road signs in the Philippines. These traffic signs are the signs that you see installed at the side or above the road. Be aware of these signs when you drive or travel in the road.

The Philippines follows its rules towards traffic and road signs from the Vienna Convention on Road Signs and Signals, alongside with other countries such India, Greece and Italy.
 
The Vienna Convention on Road Signs and Signals is an international treaty designed to increase road safety and aid international road traffic by standardizing the signing system for road traffic (road signs, traffic lights, and road markings) in use internationally.
 
The Convention classify all road signs into a number of categories:
  1. DANGER WARNING SIGNS
  2. PRIORITY SIGNS
  3. PROHIBITORY OR REGULATORY SIGNS
  4. MANDATORY SIGNS
  5. INFORMATION, FACILITIES OR SERVICE SIGNS

Good day to all,

I would like to know about the standard and its measurement of Pedestrian signage. In my observation in the hi-ways, I observed that three signage (pedestrian, road left, and pedestrian crossing ahead) in one stand. My question is, is that standard, if it is may I know the details and its measurement of this?

Thanks.

I would like to know the Philippine law that limits the speed limit of vehicles and noise passing in a hospital area? Because we would like to put up a sign for vehicles to slow down in hospital area and no honking nor creating noise in passing in a
hospital area. thank you so much if ever you can give me the law.
