Not enough to pass :-(

Ouch! While you were on a roll there for a few questions, you didn’t pass this time. But I know this test, and I think you’ll pass next time. Really.

1. A CMV should:
Not have a fire extinguisher, unless transporting hazardous materials.
Not have a fire extinguisher, unless the vehicle will be traveling through remote areas.
Not have a fire extinguisher.
Have a fire extinguisher and other emergency equipment.

All commercial motor vehicles are required to be equipped with the proper emergency equipment. This may include spare electrical fuses; three red reflective triangles, six fuses, or three liquid burning flares; and at least one properly charged and rated fire extinguisher.

2. When stopped at a railroad crossing, one way for a bus driver to hear if a train is approaching is by:
Opening the emergency window.
Opening the forward door.
Waiting for the passengers on the bus to quiet down on their own.

When approaching a railroad crossing, buses should stop between 15 and 50 feet from the nearest track and the driver should look both ways for a train. They should open the forward door if it improves their ability to see or hear an oncoming train.

3. Do not base your decision to shift gears on:
The speed of your engine (rpm).
The speed of the road (mph).
The actions of the vehicle next to you.

One way to know when it is time to shift gears is to learn your vehicle's operating rpm range. You should shift up when your engine reaches the top of that range. You can also learn which speeds each gear is good for and shift up based on your speedometer.

4. Mirrors should be checked:
Before every lane change.
When changing lanes, but only when other vehicles are nearby.
When changing lanes, but only if it is dark outside.

Always check for traffic in your mirrors before changing lanes. Frequent mirror checks should be a part of your normal scanning routine.

5. When steering to avoid a crash, you should:
Only use one hand to steer.
Keep both hands on the steering wheel.
Not use your mirrors to check other lanes.
Speed up as you get nearer to the hazard.

When turning quickly to avoid colliding with a hazard in the roadway, you should always keep both hands on the steering wheel. You must have a firm grip on the wheel to be able to turn quickly.

6. Regarding winter driving, all of the following are true, except:
Front tires should have a tread depth of at least 4/32 an inch.
Tires should be slightly deflated.
Rear tires should have a tread depth of at least 2/32 an inch.
Use a gauge to verify that each tire has a safe tread depth.

When driving during the winter, it is particularly important that your tires have adequate tread. You need a tread depth of at least 4/32 of an inch in every major groove on the front tires, and at least 2/32 of an inch on the back tires. Check the tread depths by using a gauge.

7. When exiting a vehicle, a driver should:
Hop directly from their seat to the ground.
Maintain at least one point of contact with their vehicle.
Be turned to face their vehicle.

When exiting your vehicle during the basic vehicle control skills test, you must face the vehicle and maintain three points of contact at all times. If your testing vehicle is a bus, you must maintain contact with the handrail. Exiting the vehicle incorrectly may result in automatic failure of the basic vehicle control skills test.

8. When asked to complete a conventional parallel parking maneuver, you should:
Pass the parking space while backing, then pull forward into it.
Pull forward past the parking space, then back into it.
Pull forward into the parking space without passing it first.
Back into the parking space without passing it first.

You may be asked to complete a conventional parallel parking maneuver into a parking space that is to the right of your vehicle. You should drive past the parking space before backing into it while bringing the rear of your vehicle as close to the rear of the space as possible. Your vehicle should be completely within the boundaries of the space.

9. If an approaching driver is using their high beam headlights, you should:
Look directly at the headlights.
Flash your high beam lights to remind the driver to switch to their low beams.
Look to the right side of your lane until the vehicle has passed.
Pull to the side of the road until the vehicle has passed.

If a vehicle is coming toward you while using its high beam headlights, glance away from the headlights and toward the right side of the road until the vehicle has passed. This will keep you from being blinded by the lights.

10. When encountering fog, you will be safest if you:
Stay in the left lane.
Don’t drive in the fog.
Use your low beam lights.
Follow the vehicle ahead of you closely.

Fog can quickly deteriorate drivers' ability to see the road, other drivers, and other hazards. Avoid driving in fog if at all possible.

11. When inspecting the exhaust system, which of the following should not cause concern?
Loose or broken exhaust pipes
Loose or broken mounting brackets
Leaking exhaust system parts
Exhaust system parts that are not rubbing against fuel system parts

When inspecting a vehicle's exhaust system, be alert to a number of potential problems, including loose, broken, or missing exhaust pipes, mufflers, tailpipes, or vertical stacks; loose, broken, or missing mounting brackets, clamps, bolts, or nuts; exhaust system parts rubbing against fuel system parts, tires, or other moving parts of the vehicle; and exhaust system parts that are leaking.

12. Your vehicle's final position should be:
Exactly where the examiner has instructed it to be.
Within five feet of the final position described by the examiner.
Wherever you can safely park.
Within two feet of the final position described by the examiner.

You should finish each exercise with your vehicle in the exact position described by the examiner. You can be penalized for failing to complete an exercise exactly in the manner described by the examiner, potentially resulting in failure of the basic control skills test.

13. After picking up passengers at a stop, a driver should:
Allow the passengers time to sit or brace themselves before beginning to drive.
Honk their horn and re-enter traffic.
Begin driving as quickly as possible.

You should start and stop as smoothly as possible to help prevent passenger injury. After passengers have boarded your bus at a stop, you should allow them time to be seated or to brace themselves before you begin driving.

14. If you are confronted with an aggressive driver, you should:
Make eye contact.
Try to stay in their way.
Ignore any hand gestures.

The best thing to do when confronted with an aggressive driver is to get out of their way, if possible. Avoid making eye contact, which could further provoke the driver. Ignore any hand gestures made by the driver.

15. If involved in an accident, which of the following is not recommended?
Trying to move your vehicle to the side of the road
Caring for the injured
Driving away from the scene

When involved in an accident, you should protect the area, notify authorities, care for the injured, collect required information, and report the accident. You can lose your license for leaving the scene of an accident.

16. An example of mandatory emergency equipment is:
A supply of spare electrical fuses.
A loud horn.
A battery-operated flashlight.
A supply of fireworks.

Mandatory emergency equipment includes: at least one fire extinguisher; spare electrical fuses (unless the vehicle is equipped with circuit breakers); and warning devices for parked vehicles (such as reflective triangles).

17. A vehicle that is smaller than your vehicle:
Will usually be able to stop faster than your vehicle.
Will usually take more time to stop than your vehicle.
Will take about the same amount of time to stop as your vehicle.

In general, a smaller vehicle will be able to come to a complete stop faster than a larger vehicle. Keep this in mind when determining your following distance.

18. Regrooved tires are:
Allowed only on the front of a bus.
Allowed only on the rear of a bus.
Not allowed anywhere on a bus.

Regrooved, recapped, or retreaded tires are not permitted to be used on the front of a bus.

19. Unsafely reaching for a phone is:
Acceptable if you are driving without a passenger.
Acceptable if you plan to use a hands-free feature.
Unacceptable even if you plan to use a hands-free feature.

If you must use a mobile phone while driving, it must be in close proximity to you and easily reachable while you are securely fastened into your seat. It is dangerous and non-compliant to unsafely reach for a mobile phone, even if you plan to use a hands-free feature when speaking on the phone.

20. If a tire fails while you are driving, you should:
Brake as hard as possible.
Release the steering wheel.
Stay off the brakes and let the vehicle slow down.
Stop on the roadway.

In the event of tire failure, hold the steering wheel firmly. Stay off the brakes and let the vehicle slow down on its own. Once the vehicle has slowed considerably, you should brake very gently, pull off the road, and stop.
