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. When driving with passengers, a bus driver should:
Engage in conversation with the passengers.
Not engage in conversation with the passengers.
Engage in conversations with the passengers if they feel comfortable doing so.

Always signal your intentions before turning or changing lanes. Do not assume that other drivers will move out of your way simply because you are signaling to turn.

One liquid burning flare.
Three red reflective triangles.

8. To ensure that you do not slow down traffic when driving a large truck, you should:
Switch gears while driving uphill.
Try to pass another vehicle while driving uphill.

9. When traveling down a hill, you can reduce the amount of required braking by:

Switching into neutral.

Before starting down a hill, decelerate and shift down into a gear that will allow you to control your vehicle without braking too hard. Using too much brake when driving downhill can cause the brakes to overheat, reducing the braking power.
