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 taking the basic vehicle control skills test, failing to exit your vehicle properly during any exercise will result in:
Failure of only that exercise.
An extra point against your final score.
Automatic failure of the basic vehicle control skills test.

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 control skills test.

2. When dropping off students at a school, a driver should:
Secure the bus by turning off the engine.
Leave the key in the ignition, if leaving the driver’s compartment.
Read a book while students unload.

When unloading students at a school, a bus driver must secure the bus by turning off the engine. If they must leave the driver's compartment, they should remove the key from the ignition. The driver must supervise the unloading process.

3. When making a stop to pick up students, a driver should ensure all surrounding traffic has stopped before:
Opening the door and signaling for the students to approach.
Turning on the alternating red lights.
Pulling over to the side of the road.

When stopping to pick up students, a school bus driver should ensure that all surrounding traffic has stopped before opening the door and signaling for the students to approach the bus.

4. If a student is believed to have suffered a back injury, you should:
Move them off the bus.
Not move them.
Encourage them to try to stand.

A school bus driver should not attempt to move a student who has suffered a neck or spinal injury unless the student's life is in immediate danger.

5. Before a trip, you should make sure that:
The brake pedal sticks.
The gas pedal is loose.
The grooved pedal surface has not been smoothed out.

When checking your vehicle's pedals during a pre-trip inspection, you should ensure that there is nothing under or around the pedals that will obstruct their use. Make sure the pedals are in proper working condition and that the surfaces of the pedals are grooved, if applicable.

6. A passive railroad crossing:
Has a control device.
Does not have any control devices.
Should be avoided.

Railroad crossings that do not display any traffic control devices are known as passive crossings. The decision to proceed across tracks at a passive crossing is entirely up to the driver.

7. Bus stops may be changed by:
The driver.
The school district.

Official school bus routes and stops are established by the local school district. Drivers should never change a stop location without the written approval of an appropriate district official.

8. School buses:
Are never equipped with ABS.
Are only equipped with ABS if located in cold climates.
May be equipped with ABS.

Most commercial vehicles manufactured after 1998 or 1999 are required to be equipped with Anti-Lock Braking Systems (ABS). Many older buses are also equipped with ABS.

9. ABS allows you to:
Drive faster.
Drive less carefully.
Maintain control under slippery conditions.

Anti-Lock Braking Systems (ABS) help prevent brake lockup when driving on slippery surfaces. If a driver brakes too hard on a slippery surface, ABS makes it easier for the driver to maintain control of their vehicle. A vehicle equipped with ABS should be driven and braked in the same way as a vehicle without ABS.

10. If there is a fire on a school bus, the students:
Must be evacuated.
Should stay on the bus but be moved to a part of the bus unaffected by the fire.
Should stay in their seats.

If a school bus is on fire, or if there is a threat of fire, it is mandatory for a bus driver to evacuate the students from the bus.

11. When performing a pre-trip inspection and looking into the fifth wheel gap, you should:
Make sure the locking jaws are open.
Make sure the locking jaws are fully closed around the kingpin.
Make sure the locking jaws are loose.

When inspecting a trailer coupling, you should make sure the fifth wheel locking jaws are closed around the shank of the kingpin, not the head of the kingpin.

12. If students on the bus cause a disturbance while other students are unloading, what should you do?
Immediately walk to the back of the bus and take care of the disturbance while students unload.
Wait until the students are done unloading and then take care of the disturbance.
Have a student who is closer to the disturbance handle the situation while you supervise unloading.

The process of loading or unloading students from a school bus requires a driver's full concentration. If there is a behavioral issue on the bus, wait until the exiting students are safely off the bus and out of the way before you address the problem on the bus.

13. If a gate controlling a railroad crossing does not go back up after a train passes, you should:
Drive around the gate.
Wait for another vehicle to cross the tracks first to see if it is safe.
Call your dispatcher.

If you are stopped at a railroad crossing and a gate fails to return to its open position after a train passes, call your dispatcher. Do not attempt to drive around the lowered gate.

14. When completing an offset back/right parking maneuver, you should:
Pull straight forward, then drive straight back.
Drive straight back, then pull forward to the left.
Pull straight forward, then back to the right.

If you are asked to complete an offset back/right parking maneuver, you should first pull straight forward, then back up to the right. Your vehicle must be parked completely within the boundaries of the parking space.

15. To safely unload a bus, students should:
Remain seated until they are told to exit.
Stand up and head toward the door while the bus is slowing down.
Exit the bus and stand directly next to the bus while it is being driven away from the stop.

Students who are about to unload a school bus should remain seated until the driver tells them that it is safe to exit. After exiting the bus, they should walk to a position that is at least 10 feet away from the bus so the driver can clearly see them.

16. Backing a school bus is:
Strongly encouraged.
Strongly discouraged.
Only to be done in the morning.

Backing a school bus is strongly discouraged and should only be done if there is no safe alternative. If you must drive in reverse, be sure to follow all proper safety protocol.

17. During the driving test, when asked to make a lane change:
You should not be concerned with other motorists.
You should use your turn signal and change lanes when safe.
You should make the lane change as quickly as possible, even if that means cutting off another driver.

When asked to make a lane change during the on-road driving test, you should make the proper traffic checks, use your turn signal, and smoothly change lanes when it is safe to do so.

18. An encroachment is when:
A driver does not appear for their scheduled basic skills test.
A vehicle touches an exercise boundary line during the basic skills test.
A driver fails one section of the basic skills test.

An encroachment during the basic vehicle control skills test is when an exercise boundary line is touched or crossed by any portion of the applicant's vehicle. Every encroachment will be counted as an error.

19. As a general rule, where should students be kept during an emergency?
On the bus
On the side of the road near the bus
In a field away from the bus

In most emergency or crisis situations, students on a school bus will be safer and more easily controlled if they are kept on the bus than if they are evacuated. However, if staying on a bus will expose the students to risk or injury, the bus driver should escort them to a safe location.

20. Pre-trip inspections should be done:
Differently each time in order to place emphasis on different items.
The same way each time to prevent you from forgetting anything.
Once in a while.

A pre-trip inspection should be completed in the same way before every drive. Consistency will help you learn all of the proper steps and decrease the likelihood that you will forget to check something.
