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. What does this road sign mean?
Slow down and prepare to stop if cars are approaching you.
Come to a full stop then proceed when it is safe to do so.
Proceed carefully through the intersection, not always stopping.

An octagonal sign always means stop. When approaching a stop sign, you must come to a complete stop at the marked stop line and proceed only when it is safe to do so. If there is no stop line, stop before the crosswalk. If there is no crosswalk, stop before the intersection at a point from which you can see any oncoming traffic.

2. When you are behind a motorcycle, you should:
Be ready to use your horn.
Drive more slowly.
Allow a larger following distance.

When following a motorcyclist, allow for at least a three- to four-second following distance. Motorcycles can stop quickly and following them too closely endangers your life and that of the motorcyclist. If the motorcyclist should fall, you need extra distance to avoid the rider. The chances of a fall are greatest on wet and icy roads, gravel roads, and metal surfaces such as bridges, gratings, and streetcar or railroad tracks.

3. If you have an argument with another person and you are angry, you should:
Loudly play the radio while driving so you won’t think about your argument.
Take a few minutes to cool off before driving.
Drive on the interstate to let off steam.

Your emotions affect your ability to drive safely. If you are overly angry, excited, afraid, worried, or depressed, you should give yourself time to calm down before operating a vehicle. You need to be able to mentally focus on driving without thinking about the things that made you upset.

4. This sign means:
All traffic must turn left.
No left turn.
No U-turn.

This sign means drivers cannot make a left turn. It is unsafe and unlawful to make a left turn at an intersection where this sign is posted.

5. This sign means:
Do not enter.
Yield the right-of-way.
Reserved parking for persons with disabilities.

This sign is posted on one-way streets and other roadways where a driver is not allowed to enter. A driver may see this sign if attempting to enter an expressway ramp in the wrong direction.

6. Stopping distances and the severity of collisions:
Decrease as a vehicle's speed increases.
Are not affected by a vehicle's speed.
Increase as a vehicle's speed increases.

Excessive vehicle speed can have disastrous effects. As a vehicle's speed increases, the potential impact of a collision also increases, elevating the possibility of serious injury and death. Increase your following distance as your speed increases to ensure that you will be able to stop safely if needed.

7. MVA will suspend the license of any driver who:
Refuses to use a false ID to purchase alcohol.
Fails to meet the attendance requirement for school.
Refuses to submit to a test determining their blood alcohol concentration (BAC).

A person may not be compelled to take a drug or alcohol test. However, upon receipt of a certified statement from a police officer that a test was refused, the MVA will impose the suspension period for a test refusal.

8. This yellow warning sign means:
You are approaching a school or school crosswalk.
Slow down, drive with caution, and watch for children.
Both of the above.

This sign is placed on roads near schools to warn drivers to slow down, drive with caution, and watch for children.

9. A school bus is stopped ahead of you in your lane with its red lights flashing. You should:
Stop and proceed when you think all of the children have exited the bus.
Slow to 25 mph and pass cautiously.
Stop for as long as the red lights are flashing.

When a stopped school bus is using its flashing red lights, approaching drivers must stop and remain stopped until the lights stop flashing. If the school bus is on the opposite side of a divided highway, drivers do not need to stop.

10. Before you enter an intersection, you should look to your:
Left, your right, then your left again.

Before you enter an intersection, look to both the left and right for approaching vehicles or crossing pedestrians. Look to your left a second time, as vehicle approaching from your left will be closer than those approaching from your right. Look across the intersection before you start to move to make sure the path is clear all the way through.

11. Which of the following describes the thinking of defensive drivers?
They know other drivers will do the right thing.
They consider what other drivers might do and are prepared to react.
They expect no breaks and give none.

Driving defensively means anticipating potential errors made by others and preparing to compensate for their mistakes.

12. Remove all snow, frost, and ice from:
Just the windshield.
All windows.
Just the windshield and passenger window.

It is important that you are able to see clearly through all of your vehicle's windows, including the windshield. Remove all snow, ice, and frost from your vehicle's windows and mirrors before you start to drive.

13. If your car's suspension is bad, it can cause:
Vehicle control problems.
Squealing brakes.
Slack in the steering.

Your suspension helps you control your vehicle and provides a comfortable ride over varying road surfaces. If your vehicle bounces a lot after driving over a bump, or is generally hard to control, you may need new suspension parts.

14. This sign means:
Do not enter.
Stop ahead.

Interfere with traffic and receive a ticket.
Improve traffic flow.
Demonstrate defensive driving techniques.

You must drive more slowly than usual when there is heavy traffic or bad weather. However, if you block the normal and reasonable movement of traffic by driving too slowly, you may be cited. You should match the speed of traffic, unless the speed of traffic exceeds the legal speed limit.

17. When displayed on the rear of a vehicle, the sign shown indicates:
The vehicle is being drawn by an animal.
The vehicle is traveling at speeds of 25 mph or slower.
The vehicle makes sudden stops.

You may encounter slow-moving vehicles on the roadways, such as bicycles, horse-drawn vehicles, or farm vehicles. Some of these vehicles may display this emblem to warn other drivers that they will only be traveling at speeds of 25 mph or slower.

18. This road sign means:
All traffic must go straight.
Turning on a red signal is prohibited.

Regulatory signs provide notice to road users of traffic laws that must be obeyed. When posted at an intersection, this sign tells drivers that turning right or left on a solid red signal is prohibited.

Driving as closely to the right edge of the road as possible and stopping.
Moving into the right lane and driving slowly until it has passed.
Stopping immediately, even if you are within an intersection.

You must yield the right-of-way to any emergency vehicle that is using its siren and flashing lights. Do this by driving to the right edge of the road and stopping, taking care not to stop in an intersection. You may move again after the emergency vehicle has passed.

Follow the driver in front of you closely.
Pass the driver in front of you as soon as you can.

Anything that causes evasive action while driving.
Anything that takes your attention away from driving.
Anything that causes you to pay more attention to driving.

The term “distracted driving” refers to driving while anything takes your eyes, hands, or mind away from the task at hand. Distracted driving is the most common contributing factor to reported traffic collisions. Distractions of any sort cause drivers to miss key visual and audio cues needed to avoid a crash.
