A broken line consists of dashes, and it indicates that passing is permitted in that stretch of road. A solid line remains unbroken, and indicates that passing is not permitted. Double lines serve a number of purposes. They may be present because permissions are different for opposing lanes, or they may be present to separate traffic. For example, there may be a stretch of road where a southbound lane is permitted to pass, but a northbound lane is not. Thus, there would be a double line, broken on the southbound side, and solid on the northbound side.

As for the colours, white lines indicate that traffic on both sides of that line flow in the same direction, whereas lanes on opposite sides of a yellow line flow in opposing directions.

What is the difference between double yellow and double white lines?

White Lines: these separate lanes going in the same direction- if BROKEN, you can pass, merge, or cross over them. If SOLID, usually, shouldn't cross or pass over them. Yellow Lines: these separate lanes going in different directions- If BROKEN you can pass or cross; if SOLID you shouldn't cross or pass over them. Double Yellow with One Solid Line and One Broken Line: In this case, you can pass IF the BROKEN half of the line is on your side of the road. Otherwise, you can't pass over the line. Make sure to check an official driver's handbook from your local DMV for more information on the variations to rules and the specifics of said rules.

When the center of a roadway has a combination of a solid yellow and broken Yellow line you may?

If the broken yellow is on YOUR side, you may pass when safe to do so. You must have your car back in your lane before the lines become double solid yellow. If the broken line is on the other side, that lane may pass if safe to do so. If a stretch of road has only a broken yellow line, either lane may pass IF safe but you must now be extra cautious as to what drivers intend to do.
