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. You are driving when your power steering stops working. You should:
Honk your horn and turn off the ignition.
Turn on your hazard lights and brace yourself.
Work hard to steer, reduce your speed, drive to a safe area, and stop.
Slam on your brakes.

If your power steering stops working, additional effort will be required to maintain steering control. Reduce your speed and pull off the roadway to stop in a safe area.

2. This sign means:
You must drive slowly and sound your horn.
A bus stop is ahead.
You are entering a school's parking lot.
A school zone is ahead.

Warning signs are used to warn drivers about upcoming hazardous conditions and are usually yellow with black markings. This sign tells drivers that they are approaching a school zone and that they should slow down and watch for children.

3. This sign means:
Watch for bicycles.
Bicycles not allowed.
Bicycle repair shop ahead.
Bicycles have the right-of-way.

This sign provides advance warning that bicycles may be present.

4. When approaching an accident scene, you should:
Keep your attention on your driving.
Keep moving.
Stop if you are involved or if emergency help has not yet arrived.
All of the above.

Do not stop at an accident scene unless you are involved or emergency help has not yet arrived. Keep your attention on your driving and keep moving, watching for people who might be on or near the road. Never drive to the scene of an accident, fire, or other disaster just to look.

5. If two vehicles arrive to an uncontrolled intersection at the same time:
The largest vehicle has the right-of-way.
The car on the left has the right-of-way.
The car on the left shall yield to the car on the right.
The car on the right shall yield to the car on the left.

If two vehicles arrive at the same time to an uncontrolled intersection, the driver on the left must yield to the driver on the right. The driver on the left may then proceed when it is safe to do so.

6. Shortly before your driver or nondriver license expires, the Driver License Bureau will mail a renewal reminder postcard to:
The most current address on your driver record.
The address on your last application.
The address in your local phone book.
Your local contract office.

The department will mail you a reminder to renew before your license expires. The reminder will be sent to the mailing address on your driver record. A renewal notice will not be mailed for a temporary instruction permit or commercial learner’s permit.

7. Defensive driving is:
Identifying dangerous driving situations and taking action to avoid accidents.
Defending yourself against poor drivers by getting ahead of them in traffic.
Following the vehicle ahead of you at a close distance.
Quickly changing lanes and shifting in and out of traffic congestion.

You drive defensively when you identify dangerous driving situations and take action before an accident occurs. Defensive driving helps prevent conflicts with aggressive, offensive, discourteous, careless, inattentive, impulsive, ignorant, or intoxicated drivers or pedestrians.

8. To avoid being in a truck or bus driver’s blind spot, you should:
Never pass them.
Avoid driving alongside them and avoid tailgating.
Flash your lights at them.
Sound your horn.

Because a large vehicle, such as a truck or bus, has large blind spots to its sides and rear, avoid driving alongside such a vehicle and do not tailgate one.

9. This road sign means:

No exit.
No right turn.

This sign indicates that right turns are prohibited.

10. This is a ____ sign.

This triangular sign is a "Yield" sign. When you see this sign, you must slow down to check for traffic and yield the right-of-way to pedestrians and approaching cross traffic. Stop only if it is necessary to do so.

11. Two solid yellow lines on the pavement mean:
Passing is allowed for drivers from both directions.
Passing is not allowed.
Passing is allowed if you are at the top a hill.
Passing is allowed during daylight only.

Yellow lines tell you that the traffic on the other side of the lines is moving in the opposite direction. You should never cross two solid yellow lines to pass from either direction.

12. A license plate frame:
May cover the word "Missouri" on the plate.
Should not cover any information on the plate.
May cover the month and year registration stickers.

Missouri law requires that license plates be securely fastened to a vehicle and that all parts of the plates are visible and clean for view or inspection by any law enforcement entity.

Finance A Car Today.
Full Ambulance Cannot Turn.
Fear of Authority Causes Tension.
Failure to Appear in Court for Traffic violations.

Continue to drive regardless of any warning labels.
Drive only during daylight hours.

16. You may pass another vehicle:
In a curve or on a hill because the chance is small that another vehicle is coming.
By using the shoulder of the highway.
If your lane is next to a solid yellow line and the passing lane is clear ahead.
None of the above.

You may not pass another vehicle on a hill or in a curve because you cannot see oncoming traffic and may cause a collision. Never pass another vehicle by driving onto the shoulder of a highway. Passing another vehicle by driving over a solid yellow line is prohibited.

17. When preparing to turn left, drivers should:
Slow down gradually while checking their rearview mirror.
Move into the left lane.
Watch for oncoming vehicles and pedestrians.
All of the above.

As you approach a left turn, signal your intentions three to five seconds in advance. Continually check your rearview mirror as you gradually slow down. On a multilane road, move into the left lane before reaching the intersection where you plan to turn. Yield to traffic and pedestrians and turn when your path is clear.

18. Lanes of traffic moving in the same direction are divided by ____ lines.

Solid white lines are used to separate lanes traveling in the same direction (as well as to mark the right edge of the road). Broken white lines separate lanes traveling in the same direction and may be crossed to pass. Yellow lines separate lanes of traffic moving in opposite directions.

A second conviction will require an IID to be installed before a license can be reinstated.
