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. If your brakes fail when traveling downhill, decide what to do as quickly as possible because:
The longer you wait, the faster your vehicle will go.
The longer you wait, the more vehicles will get out of your way.
The longer you wait, the slower your vehicle will go.

However you choose to deal with a brake failure on a downhill slope, it is important that you make your decision as quickly as possible. The longer you wait to act, the faster your vehicle will be moving, and the harder it will become to stop.

2. When drivers turn, they usually:
Look in the direction of the turn.
Look in the direction opposite the turn.
Look behind their vehicles.

When turning, drivers usually look in the direction of their turn. If a driver fails to signal before a turn or lane change, their body movements may still provide a clue that they are planning to turn.

3. 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.

4. The only way to sober up after consuming alcohol is to:
Take a cold shower.

Most alcohol is removed from the body by the liver, which processes alcohol at a fixed rate. Despite popular belief, techniques like drinking black coffee or taking a cold shower will not accelerate this process. The only thing you can do to become sober after drinking is allow your body the time it needs to eliminate the alcohol from your system.

5. 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.

6. 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.

7. Shaded areas of a road:
Usually don’t freeze.
Are usually blocked from all moisture, so they cannot freeze.
Will remain slick after ice has melted on other areas of the road.

Because they are exposed to less sunlight and warm up more slowly, shaded areas will remain icy and slippery after ice on other areas of the road has melted.

8. If there is a cargo fire in a box trailer:
The trailer doors should be opened.
The trailer doors should not be opened.
A large, heavy blanket should be put over the trailer.

The doors of a trailer should be not be opened in the event of a cargo fire, especially if the cargo includes hazardous materials. Opening trailer doors would increase the fire's oxygen supply, potentially causing the fire to increase in size.

9. 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.

10. When passing a row of parked vehicles, a driver should:
Stay close to the vehicles.
Watch for signs of a person exiting a vehicle.
Flash their headlights.

You should be cautious when passing parked vehicles. A person may step out of a parked vehicle or out from between parked vehicles without looking for oncoming traffic. A driver may begin moving their vehicle before realizing you are there.

11. Radial and bias-ply tires:
Should be used together.
Should be used together on the front of a vehicle.
Should not be used together.

Radial and bias-ply tires should not be used together. All wheels on a vehicle should be the same style and equally-sized.

12. Hydroplaning usually occurs:
When tires are properly inflated.
When driving at speeds slower than 15 mph.
In areas where water collects on the road.

Hydroplaning occurs on surfaces where water has collected. If there is enough water, vehicles can hydroplane at speeds as low as 30 mph. Hydroplaning becomes more likely if tires are under-inflated or if the tread is worn.

13. 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.

14. Which of the following is not a type of distraction?

Distractions that can affect safe driving can be classified as physical (such as reaching for an object), mental (such as talking with passenger), or both (such as talking on a hand-held phone).

15. If you are driving at a reduced speed in a construction zone when you spot a construction worker near the road, you should:
Speed up.
Stay at your current speed.
Further reduce your speed.

Always decrease your speed when traveling through a construction area. Slow down even further if there are workers on or near the roadway.

16. When accelerating on a surface with poor traction, such as a wet road, a driver should:
Speed up quickly.
Speed up slowly.
Not be concerned about the pavement.

You should accelerate very gradually when driving under conditions that create poor traction.

17. If unable to tell if the road is becoming icy and slippery, a driver:
Should try guessing.
May open their window and feel the front of the side mirror for ice.
Should look at the road closely.

If you think the road surface may be becoming icy but you are not certain, you can open your window and feel the front of the side mirror, mirror support, or antenna. If ice has formed on any of these items, the road is likely becoming icy as well.

18. Which of the following is not a cause of hydraulic brake failure?
Loss of hydraulic pressure
Brake fade on long hills

Most cases of hydraulic brake failure come from one of two causes. The brakes may fail due to a loss of hydraulic pressure or due to overuse on long hills, causing the brakes to fade.

19. 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.

20. Drivers talking to passengers in their vehicle should be viewed as:
Responsible drivers.
Distracted drivers.
Knowledgeable drivers.

Drivers who are engaged in conversation with passengers may be distracted from the task of driving. Use extra caution when driving near distracted drivers.
