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. A driver should always:
Stay in their lane.
Have an emergency plan.
Stay in the left lane.
Drive above the speed limit.

While driving, you should continually scan the road ahead to spot potential hazards well in advance. Make emergency plans for how to deal with the hazards in the event that they become dangerous.

2. If transporting explosives, you may leave your vehicle unattended:
In a rest area.
At a truck stop.
On private property.
In a safe haven.

When transporting hazardous materials, you may leave your vehicle unattended in a safe haven. A safe haven is a location that has been approved for parking unattended vehicles that are loaded with explosives.

3. If a tire fails, you should:
Loosen your grip on the steering wheel.
Immediately apply the brakes.
Check your tires after coming to a complete stop.
Turn sharply off the road.

In the event of tire failure, hold the steering wheel firmly. Stay off the brakes and let the vehicle slow down on its own. Once the vehicle has slowed considerably, you should brake very gently, pull off the road, and stop. Check your tires after coming to a complete stop.

4. When an engine is started:
The brakes should be locked up.
Warning lights should come on and then quickly turn off.
The coolant temperature will decrease.
The hood must be open.

After a vehicle is started, the warning lights and buzzers should go out after a few seconds. If the warning signals do not turn off, there may be something wrong with the vehicle.

5. Proper coupling technique:
Is the same on all vehicles.
Is essential to the safe operation of a vehicle.
Includes ensuring that the fifth wheel plate is not greased.
Can be learned over time.

Knowing proper coupling and uncoupling technique is fundamental to the safe operation of combination vehicles. Improper coupling can be very dangerous.

6. If you’re feeling tired before a drive, you should:
Drink coffee.
Take caffeine pills.
Not drive.
Drive as fast as possible so you get to the destination quickly.

Stimulant drugs, including caffeine, are not helpful as a way of avoiding fatigue. They may help keep you awake, but will not make you any more alert. Feeling tired is a sign that your body needs sleep, and the only way to properly address it is to stop driving and get some sleep.

7. If an aggressive driver is involved in a crash on the road ahead of you, you should:
Block the driver in with your vehicle.
Stop after the crash scene and report the driver’s aggressive behavior to the police.
Continue driving and mind your own business.
Pull over and yell at the driver.

If you observe a crash involving an aggressive driver, you should stop a safe distance from the crash scene, wait for police to arrive, and inform them of the aggressive behavior you witnessed.

8. Driving at night is:
Safer than driving during the day.
Just as safe as driving during the day.
More dangerous than driving during the day.

Driving at night is more dangerous than driving during the day. It is more difficult for drivers to see hazards, the glare of headlights can affect drivers' vision, and there are more fatigued and impaired drivers on the road.

9. When checking a tank vehicle, it is most important to verify that:
There are no leaks.
There is no frost on the windshield.
The paint is not cracking.
The tires are new.

A tank vehicle has a number of items that must be checked during a pre-trip inspection. Refer to the operator's manual for your specific vehicle to ensure that you are checking the vehicle properly. When inspecting any tank vehicle, it is most important to verify that there are no leaks.

10. Belts in the engine compartment should be:
Easy to slide off.

When inspecting your vehicle's engine, check the belts for tightness and excessive wear. The amount of "give" that is safe for each belt in a given engine will vary, so learn what is appropriate for your vehicle.

11. When checking your vehicle's lights before driving:
The vehicle should be running and in gear.
The engine should be turned off.
The check can be done from inside the vehicle.
The check can be done by looking at a reflection from a shiny surface.

To check your vehicle's lights before a trip, you should set the parking brake, turn off the engine, remove the key from the ignition, and take the key with you. Turn on your low beam headlights and four-way flashers. Get out of the vehicle to make sure the lights are working properly.

12. If you apply for an original or renewal HazMat endorsement, you must undergo a check through which agency?
The Transportation Security Administration
The Federal Bureau of Investigation
The Department of Energy
The local law enforcement agency

To obtain a hazardous materials endorsement, you must pass a security check conducted by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA).

13. To know which placards to use, you need to know:
The hazard classes of the materials.
The types of containers holding the materials.
The destination.
The shipper.

To determine which hazardous materials placards to use, you must know the hazard class of the materials; the amount of hazardous materials being shipped; and the total weight of all classes of hazardous materials in the vehicle.

14. To help your vehicle be seen by others:
Your headlights should be clean.
Your headlights should be turned off during the day.
Your headlights should be covered with grease.
Your headlights should be used, but only in the rain.

A vehicle's headlights should be clean during trips. This will ensure that the lights can provide as much light as possible, helping the vehicle to be seen.

15. Pull out the trailer air supply control to test:
The parking brake.
The trailer emergency brakes.
The trailer service brakes.
The landing gear.

Be sure to test the trailer emergency brakes before beginning a trip. After ensuring that the trailer rolls freely, you can test the emergency brakes by pulling out the trailer air supply control, or placing it in the "emergency" position. Pull forward slightly with the tractor and make sure the trailer does not move.

16. If a substance is being transported in a reportable quantity, what letters will appear on the shipping paper and package?

If a substance is being transported in a reportable quantity, the shipper must display the letters "RQ" on the shipping paper and package.

Move the vehicle forward slowly and apply the brakes with the brake pedal.
Reverse the vehicle slowly and apply the brakes with the hand control.
Reverse the vehicle slowly and apply the brakes with the brake pedal.

To test the trailer service brakes, you should first ensure that the braking system has a normal air pressure level, then release the parking brake. You should then move the vehicle forward slowly and apply the brakes with the hand control. If the trailer service brakes are working properly, you will feel the brakes activate.

18. What should you do if the coolant temperature gauge rises above the highest safe temperature?
Continue to drive.
Pull over and find out what the problem is.
Run the air conditioner.
Turn up the radio.

A coolant gauge rising above the highest safe temperature may indicate that there is a problem with the vehicle that could result in engine failure or a fire in the engine. Stop as soon as you safely can and investigate the problem.

19. Which cargo is the most difficult to transport, due to its shifting weight?

Driving with liquids in a partially-filled tank requires special care because liquids are prone to surge when carried in a tank. Liquid surge causes a vehicle's weight to shift.

20. The easiest way to recognize that your trailer has begun to skid is to:
Ask another driver.
Use your mirrors to determine if the trailer has left the lane.
Release the brake pedal and then push it down again.
Watch the jackknife warning light on the control panel.

The easiest way to spot a trailer skid is to use your mirrors. Any time you brake hard, check your mirrors to ensure that your trailer is still in its proper position.
