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. Which of the following is not a sign of fatigue?
Difficulty focusing, with frequent blinking
Yawning repeatedly or rubbing eyes
Staying in your lane

Potential warning signs of fatigue include difficulty focusing, frequent blinking, or heavy eyelids; yawning repeatedly or rubbing your eyes; daydreaming; wandering or disconnected thoughts; trouble remembering the last few miles you've driven; missing exits or traffic signs; having trouble keeping your head up; drifting from your lane; following too closely; hitting a shoulder rumble strip; or feeling restless and irritable.

2. Pre-trip inspections:
Should never be done the same way two times in a row.
Should always be done in the same order.
Do not need to be done if the driver is familiar with the vehicle.

A vehicle inspection should be completed in the same order every time. This will make it easier for you to learn all of the steps and will make it less likely that you will forget to check something.

3. When backing, you should:
Move quickly to get out of the way of other drivers.
Try not to use your mirrors.
Start from any position.
Use a helper, if possible.

Backing a large CMV is always dangerous because you will not be able to see everything behind you. If you must back up, use a helper, if possible.

4. What is Gross Combination Weight?
The total weight of the powered unit, trailer, and cargo
The total weight of a single vehicle without its load
The maximum weight allowed by the manufacturer

Gross Combination Weight (GCW) is the total weight of a powered unit, its trailer(s), and the cargo being carried.

5. For safety purposes, when should you turn off a retarder?
When the roadways are slippery
When you are carrying a passenger
When you are carrying a heavy load
When driving in heavy traffic

Retarders are mechanisms in some vehicles that help slow a vehicle and reduce the need for braking. However, using a retarder may cause wheels to skid when they have poor traction. Turn off retarders when traveling under wet, snowy, or icy conditions.

6. When using a mirror, you should:
Look quickly at the mirror.
Stare at the mirror for a long time.
Use only the driver’s side mirror.

When making mirror checks, you should look at the mirrors fairly quickly. If you spend too much time looking in a mirror, you may travel a substantial distance down the road without seeing what is coming up ahead.

7. When passengers have carry-on baggage, it is best to:
Leave the items leaning against the rear exit door.
Leave the items near the front door.
Secure the items in a manner that allows easy access to all exits.

Bus passengers should never be allowed to leave baggage in the aisle or doorway of a bus. All luggage and cargo must be positioned in a manner that ensures riders are able to exit by any window or door in an emergency.

8. To warn drivers behind you that you will be slowing down, you should:
Turn on the right turn signal followed by the left turn signal.
Tap your brake pedal a few times to illuminate your brake lights.
Swerve from side to side to get their attention.

To let drivers behind you know that you plan to slow down, lightly tap your brake pedal a few times to flash your brake lights. It is important to communicate your intentions to other drivers.

9. If being tailgated while driving a large vehicle, you should do all of the following, except:
Reduce your speed gradually.
Increase your following distance.
Speed up.
Try to let the other vehicle pass.

If you are being tailgated, avoid making quick changes in speed and open up your following distance. This will make it easier for the tailgater to pass you. Increasing your speed is not a good idea because the driver may continue to tailgate you at the higher speed, only increasing the danger.

10. Emergency equipment, such as fire extinguishers, are:
Only needed in vehicles transporting hazardous materials.
Only needed for interstate travel.
Required in all commercial motor vehicles.

All commercial motor vehicles must carry appropriate emergency equipment, including fire extinguishers.

11. When backing with a trailer:
You should not back up in a straight line.
You should not correct drift until you are very far off course.
You should pull up to reposition the vehicle as needed.
You should avoid braking.

When backing with a trailer, you should pull up to reposition your vehicle as needed.

12. If you are turning left at an intersection where there are two available turn lanes:
It is best to use the right lane.
It doesn’t matter which lane you use.
It is best to use the left lane.

You may have to swing right to safely make a left turn. If there are two left turn lanes available at an intersection, you should always begin your turn in the rightmost lane.

13. When checking your vehicle's lights before driving:
The vehicle should be running and in gear.
The engine should be turned off.
The check can be done from inside the vehicle.
The check can be done by looking at a reflection from a shiny surface.

To check your vehicle's lights before a trip, you should set the parking brake, turn off the engine, remove the key from the ignition, and take the key with you. Turn on your low beam headlights and four-way flashers. Get out of the vehicle to make sure the lights are working properly.

14. To avoid a collision with a hazard on the roadway:
You should always try to stop.
Swerving may be a safer option than stopping.
You should never swerve.

Swerving out of the way of a hazard is sometimes safer than trying to stop before reaching the hazard. You can usually turn away from something more quickly than you can come to a complete stop.

15. What is the only way to sober up after drinking?
Take a cold shower.
Drink coffee.

The liver removes alcohol from the body at a fixed rate that cannot be increased through tricks like drinking coffee or taking a cold shower. The only way to sober up after drinking is to wait for the alcohol to be removed from your system.

16. A vehicle must be equipped with all of the following, except:
A fire extinguisher.
Spare electrical fuses.
Warning devices for a parked vehicle.
A flashlight.

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.

17. When starting an engine, warning lights and buzzers should:
Turn on and stay on.
Flicker occasionally.
Turn off right away.

After starting a vehicle's engine, the warning lights and buzzers for oil, coolant, charging circuits, and the Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) should go out right away.

18. Who is responsible for the safe operation of a vehicle?
The driver
The mechanic
The owner

20. Hydroplaning is like:
Water skiing.

Hydroplaning is similar to water skiing: your vehicle's tires glide along the road on a film of water without having traction with the surface of the road.
