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. At stops, a driver should:
Leave the bus.
Warn exiting passengers about potential hazards.
Talk with other bus drivers.

At bus stops, drivers should warn passengers about potential hazards. This may include warning them to watch their step when exiting the bus by way of lowered stairways.

2. If driving on a surface with poor traction, a driver should accelerate slowly:
Because it is always good to accelerate slowly.
To keep from losing control of the vehicle.
So that they do not accelerate faster than the vehicle ahead.

To avoid a loss of control, you should accelerate slowly when driving in poor-traction conditions, such as rain or snow.

3. When re-entering traffic after a bus stop, you should:
Assume other drivers will allow you to merge back into traffic.
Wait for a gap large enough to allow you to accelerate and merge with traffic.
Allow a passenger to leave the bus and halt traffic to allow you to merge.

When driving a bus, you should be mindful of the size of the gap that your vehicle will need to merge into traffic after making a stop. Wait for a gap of the necessary size to open in passing traffic before re-entering the main road.

4. When backing with a trailer:
You should not back up in a straight line.
You should not correct drift until you are far off course.
You should frequently pull forward to reposition the vehicle.

When backing, you should pull forward to reposition your vehicle whenever needed. Drift should be corrected immediately by turning the steering wheel in the direction of the drift.

5. 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.

6. On any upgrade, gravity will:
Speed your vehicle up.
Slow your vehicle down.
Not impact your speed.

A vehicle will be slowed down by gravity on any uphill grade. You may need to switch to a lower gear to climb a steep grade.

7. Bridges usually:
Do not freeze.
Have heaters to prevent them from freezing.
Freeze before other surfaces.

Bridges tend to freeze before other parts of the road surface. You should be especially careful on bridges when temperatures are near the freezing point.

8. Bridges usually freeze:
Only once temperatures drop significantly below 32 degrees Fahrenheit.
After all other surfaces.
Before other surfaces.

Bridges tend to freeze before other parts of the roadway. Be particularly careful on bridges when temperatures are close to the freezing point.

9. 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.

10. 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.

11. 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.

12. To stay alert while driving, you should:
Eat a heavy meal before beginning your trip.
Keep the cab warm.
Ride with a second person who can share driving responsibilities.

Splitting driving responsibilities with a second driver lowers the chance that either of you will drive while fatigued. You can also reduce the risk of fatigue by avoiding heavy foods and keeping the interior of the cab cool.

13. 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.

14. As part of the vehicle inspection test, you will be asked to:
Explain what you would inspect and why.
Replace an electrical fuse.
Unload the trailer.

During the vehicle inspection test, you will be required to do a complete inspection of your vehicle. During this inspection, you must explain to the examiner what you are inspecting and why you are inspecting those items.

15. To avoid a hazard, you:
Should always come to a complete stop.
May need to swerve your vehicle out of the way.
Should change lanes without looking.

Stopping is not always the best way to avoid a hazard. If there is not enough space for you to stop to avoid coming into contact with the hazard, swerving out of the way may be your safest option.

16. When asked to make a lane change during the driving test, you should:
Make the change as soon as the examiner asks, without looking.
Use your turn signal and change lanes when safe.
Make the lane change as quickly as possible, even if that means cutting off another driver.

You will be asked to change lanes during the on-road driving test. When the examiner asks you to do this, you should make the necessary traffic checks and use the proper signals before changing lanes.

17. The minimum acceptable tread depth for rear tires is:
1/64 of an inch.
1/32 of an inch.
2/32 of an inch.

When inspecting your tires, verify that there is at least 4/32 of an inch of tread depth in every major groove on the front tires, and tread depth of at least 2/32 of an inch on the other tires. Tires on the same vehicle should all be the same size.

18. During the driving test, when encountering a railroad crossing, you should:
Pass another vehicle on the tracks if the other vehicle is going too slow.
Get out of the vehicle to check for a train.
Not change gears while your vehicle is on the tracks.

During the on-road driving test, do not stop, change gears, pass another vehicle, or change lanes while any part of your vehicle is in a railroad crossing.

19. If confronted by an aggressive driver, you should:
Make eye contact to better communicate with them.
Ignore their gestures.
Not move out of their path of travel.

If confronted by an aggressive driver, it is most important to get out of their way, if possible. Do not make eye contact with the driver, as doing so could provoke them. Do not let them provoke you with their actions.

20. While passengers are on board a bus, refueling the bus in an enclosed space, allowing the bus to be towed, and conversing with the passengers are considered to be:
Encouraged practices.
Acceptable practices.
Prohibited practices.

Bus drivers should not engage in conversation with passengers, fuel a bus inside an enclosed building, or tow or push a disabled bus with riders aboard the vehicle. These are all considered to be prohibited practices.
