Road signs in Malaysia are road signs used in all expressways, highways, federal roads, state roads, and municipal roads in Malaysia. Until in the early 1980s, Malaysia follows closely to the Australia-Japan standard of road signs with diamond warning signs and circular signs as restrictive signs to maintain traffic. The signs usually use the FHWA Series fonts (Highway Gothic) typeface like United States, Canada and Australia.

The Malaysian traffic signs used Bahasa Melayu (Malay language) the official and the national language in that country. However, English is also used for important public places such as tourist attractions, airports, railway stations and immigration checkpoints. But in Pengerang Highway (Federal route 92) linking Kota Tinggi to Sungai Rengit in Johor state, both Malay and English language are used.

Traffic signs in Malaysia use blue signs for federal, state and municipal roads. Green signs used for toll expressway or highways only. State Road use letters. Example:Negeri Sembilan N70, Melaka M70 and expressways use letters E --. Federal Roads only use numbers and digits, for example Federal Route 1. However, federal road numbers can also be added with the FT-- prefix before the route number, which is normally used by JKR and Malaysian police. For example, Federal Route 1 can also be written as Federal Route FT1.
