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 checking the power steering fluid during a vehicle inspection, you will need to do each of the following, except:
Show where the power steering fluid dipstick is located.
Check for adequate power steering fluid.
Ensure that the power steering fluid level is above the full mark.
Ensure that the power steering level is above the refill mark.

When checking the power steering fluid during the vehicle inspection test, you must be able to indicate where the power steering fluid dipstick is located and show that there is an adequate amount of power steering fluid in the engine compartment. The fluid level must be above the refill mark.

2. Bent lock rings:
Are acceptable.
Are not a concern in dry weather.
Are dangerous.
Can lengthen tire life.

Mismatched, bent, or cracked lock rings are dangerous and should not be used.

3. When driving on a wet road, you should reduce your speed by:
About one-half.
About one-third.
About one-quarter.

Reduce your speed when traveling on surfaces that provide reduced traction. Reduce your speed by about one-third when driving on a wet road.

4. When stopping a manual transmission vehicle, you should:
Push the clutch in when the engine is close to idle.
Push the clutch out when the engine is close to idle.
Shift into neutral when the engine is close to idle.

When stopping, apply gradual pressure to the brake pedal and stop smoothly. If stopping a manual transmission vehicle, push the clutch in when the engine is close to idle.

5. A bus driver does not need to stop when approaching:
A raised drawbridge.
A streetcar crossing.
A railroad crossing.
A stop sign.

When approaching a railroad crossing while driving a bus, you must stop between 15 and 50 feet from the nearest track to look and listen for any approaching trains. Only proceed once you are certain that there are no approaching trains. You do not need to stop at streetcar crossings; if a police officer or flagger is directing traffic; if there is a green traffic signal at the crossing; or at crossings marked "exempt" or "abandoned."

6. Cargo inside a trailer:
Does not need to be secured.
Should be stacked no taller than three feet high.
Should be secured to prevent movement in transit.
Should be loaded with the heaviest items on top of lighter items.

Cargo must be properly secured to prevent it from moving in transit. Loose cargo can be dangerous to the driver operating the CMV, as well as to other road users.

7. Rust around wheel nuts may mean:
It has rained recently.
The nuts could be loose.
The tires should be replaced.

Rust around wheel nuts may mean that they are loose. Check the tightness of the nuts if you see any rust in the area.

8. Texting while driving is:
Allowed if you are contacting your employer.
Allowed when driving on rural roads.
Not allowed.

Texting while driving is dangerous and is never permitted while operating a CMV.

9. When inspecting a power steering-equipped vehicle, you should be sure that:
The fluid is at the proper level.
The hoses are connected to the battery.
The hoses do not contain any fluid.
Only small leaks are present.

When inspecting a vehicle equipped with power steering, check the hoses, pumps, and fluid level. Be sure to check for and repair leaks before operating the vehicle.

10. 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).

11. To ensure you do not interfere with traffic while driving a heavy vehicle, you should:
Switch gears while driving uphill.
Try to pass other vehicles while driving uphill.
Stay in the right lane.
Ride the brakes while driving downhill.

If the weight of your vehicle prevents you from matching the speed of surrounding traffic, you should stay in the right lane, if possible.

12. 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.

13. When inspecting your tires, you do not want to find:
Tire tread that is 4/32 of an inch deep.
Valve stems without damage.
Mismatched tire sizes.

There should be at least 4/32 of an inch of tread depth in every major groove on front tires and 2/32 of an inch on other tires. Valve stems should not be cut or cracked. Tire sizes should not be mismatched.

14. Bridges usually:
Freeze, but only once the temperature drops significantly below 32 degrees Fahrenheit.
Freeze after other road surfaces freeze.
Freeze before other road surfaces.
Have heaters to prevent them from freezing.

Cracked or broken spring hangers.
Missing or broken leaves.
Leaking shock absorbers.

16. If feeling sleepy while driving, you should:
Press on and finish the trip.
Drive faster to arrive to your destination sooner.
Leave the road and take a nap.
Take an energy pill.

If you begin to feel sleepy while driving, the only safe response is to stop driving and get some sleep. Attempting to fight off exhaustion is dangerous and a major cause of fatal crashes. Stimulants are not a safe solution because they may help keep you awake but will not make you more alert. Once stimulants wear off, you will be even more tired than you were originally.

17. What does the vehicle inspection report do?
Inform the motor carrier about problems that may need fixing
Ensure that the vehicle is inspected regularly
Keep people accountable for inspecting the vehicle

A vehicle inspection report keeps the carrier informed about any problems that need to be fixed.
