There's probably a driver's manual available wherever you are at. There tends to be a lot of procedural stuff in there, exactly what's supposed to happen at a 4-way-stop, what to do at a one lane bridge, the like.

Driving school might be a good idea for you. Check what's available, price, reputation, possible reductions on your insurance.

>Where does one even learn to drive?
Driving schools are mandatory in my country (for now), but even if they're not mandatory in yours, i'd take it.
Not only will you be sure you're up to accepted standards, but you're pretty sure that you don't pick up bad habits from your dad/mom/spouse/whoever

As >>35532 mentions, they may also give some insurance benefits and additional options.
If you live far from nearest town/city, i'd grab trailer driving lessons as well.
If you live in a cold area with risk of lots of ice and snow, i'd strongly suggest you take a winter or ice driving safety course as well.

>How do I read the signs?
You'll learn that in the theoretical part of the driving lessons or from the book. The primary ones you need to concentrate on are speed limits and the signs that indicate the state of the road up ahead (like eg. a roadworks, yield or narrowing road sign) or localized rules (eg. a "one way" sign).
A few signs also help with gauging sharp corners etc.

Training with simulation-oriented racing games (eg. Gran Tourismo) helped me to learn to pick up signs and cues. On a race track there is also signage that helps you gaugewhen to brake and turn.

>Any books or online articles I can read?
You'll likely be given a training book or manual as part of your lessons.
On the other hand, there's not really any good books on the subject, but a lot of different driving simulators have cropped up here and there. A few are all-in-one games, while others focus on one area (eg. parking or naviagtion)

>Any tips?
I suggest reading into basic car maintenance and emergency procedures as well. (optionally take a first-aid course once every few years, which can also have job-related benefits)
I also suggest you study the car manual well and learn how to read the service list (this will help you against nasty surprises when buying a used car).
Being able to switch your own lightbulbs and refill the various fluids on your own can save you a lot of money down the road.
Women, elderly people, Audi and BMW drivers are good at showing you how NOT to drive in traffic. The same goes for most C-level workers out there. Especially study anyone that are mismatched with their vehicle (like an itty-bitty lady in a HUGE SUV)
Never drive with a handheld cellphone! Multitasking is a muscle that grows weaker with use!
