Road signs in South Africa stay close to the Vienna Convention on Road Signs and Signals concerning shape and function, but there are also some local signs unique to South Africa.

A white background signifies the sign is permanent, while a yellow background signifies that the sign is temporary. Warning signs are an upwards-pointing red triangle and black pictogram describing the danger or obstruction. Speed limit signs are a red circle with the limitation in black. South Africa drives on the left.
