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 turning, you should:
Signal before the turn.
Turn off your turn signal just before starting the turn.
Signal only if vehicles are in front of you.

Be sure to activate the appropriate turn signal well in advance of a turn or lane change. Signal continuously throughout the turn and make sure to cancel the signal after the turn is completed, if your vehicle doesn't have self-canceling signals.

2. When nearing a construction worker who is close to the road, you should:
Increase your speed.
Decrease your speed.
Not drive in any lane.
Wait until the construction is complete before proceeding.

When driving through work zones, you should make a particular point of reducing your speed when workers are on or near the road.

3. To avoid a hazard:
You should always steer to the left.
You may be able to drive onto the shoulder.
You should steer sharply in one direction.

In some emergencies, the best strategy for avoiding a hazard may be to drive onto the shoulder. Most shoulders are strong enough to support the weight of a large vehicle.

4. A distracted driver:
Usually follows the rules of the road.
Usually has slowed perception.
Is a good person to follow.

Distracted drivers perceive hazards on the road more slowly than drivers who are focused, or they do not perceive hazards at all.

5. If you have an engine fire, you should:
Open the hood as soon as possible.
Turn off the engine as soon as possible.
Not use a fire extinguisher.

To keep an engine fire from spreading, you should turn off the vehicle's engine as soon as possible. Do not open the hood if you don't have to.

6. If you are feeling tired and yawning a lot while you are driving, you should:
Pull over and take a nap.
Get some coffee.
Drive faster.

If you begin to feel tired while driving, you should stop to get some sleep. Trying to push on to reach your destination while tired is dangerous. You should not rely on caffeine to keep you awake.

7. When in heavy traffic, the safest driving speed is:
Slower than the speed being driven by surrounding traffic.
The same speed being driven by surrounding traffic.
Faster than the speed being driven by surrounding traffic.

In heavy traffic, it is safest to travel at the same speed as other vehicles. If two vehicles continue to drive in the same direction at the same speed, they cannot hit each other.

8. The heavier the vehicle:
The less important the brakes become.
The harder the brakes need to work.
The quieter the brakes will sound.

The heavier a vehicle is, the more the brakes will need to work to bring the vehicle to a complete stop.

9. Which of the following is not an example of a driver who might be a hazard?
A driver operating a vehicle without first scraping ice off the windshield
The operator of a rental truck
The driver of a station wagon with items covering the back windows
A person operating a pick-up truck

Drivers with blocked vision may pose hazards to others on the road. Examples of such drivers include those who haven't scraped ice off of their windshields; those driving vehicles loaded with large items blocking the windows; and those who are driving rental trucks without being used to the limited rear visibility of a truck.

10. What is black ice?
A thick layer of ice on the road
A thin layer of ice on the road
Ice that is black from debris on the road
Ice that is easily seen

Black ice is a thin layer of ice that is clear enough for the road surface to be seen through it. A road covered in black ice may look like it is merely wet.

11. Wheels with welding repairs are:
Safe to be used if the repairs were done by a professional.
Safe to be used if the repair seems solid.
Not safe to be used.

Wheels or rims that have had welding repairs are not safe for use. They should be replaced before the vehicle is taken on the road.

12. The steering wheel should be:
Held with both hands.
Held with one hand to keep the other hand free.
Held with one hand at a time, alternating between hands.

A steering wheel should be held firmly with both hands, placed on opposite sides of the wheel.

13. 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.

14. Which of the following is not an indicator of when to change gears?
Engine speed (rpm)
Road speed (mph)
The speed of the vehicle next to you

There are two indicators that determine when you need to shift into a higher gear. One indicator is the engine speed (rpm). You should read your vehicle's manual to learn its rpm range and shift up when you reach the top of that range. The other indicator is road speed (mph). You should learn which speeds each gear can accommodate, then keep an eye on the speedometer and shift up as needed.

15. If oil and water build up in your vehicle's air tanks, the brakes:
May not work correctly.
May feel squishy.
Will squeal loudly when used.
Will be extremely sensitive.

Air tanks should be drained daily to remove water and oil buildup. An excess of oil and water in the air tanks can interfere with proper brake function.

16. A driver who stops at a green light could be:
An impaired driver.
A driver who is color blind.
A person who does not know the rules of the road.

It is important to observe other drivers' actions and identify clues that a person could be driving impaired. Drivers who have had too much to drink, are sleepy, are on drugs, or are ill can present hazards to other drivers. One sign that a driver may be impaired is that they stop in inappropriate places, such as at green traffic lights.

17. When starting an engine as part of a pre-trip inspection, the driver should:
Listen for unusual noises.
Place the engine in first gear.
Turn on the heater.

Check your engine during the pre-trip inspection. After starting the engine, you should listen for unusual noises.

18. If the brakes pull to one side or the other when used:
They are working properly.
They need to be checked.
They will be the most effective.

If the brakes pull to one side or the other when used, it is an indication of brake trouble.

19. A tread depth of ____ should be in every major groove of a front tire.
1/32 of an inch
2/32 of an inch
4/32 of an inch

For safe operation, a commercial motor vehicle needs a tread depth of 4/32 of an inch in every major groove on the front tires, and a tread depth of 2/32 of an inch on other tires.

20. Where on a truck should placards be placed?
On the rear
On the left and right sides
On the front
All of the above
