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. This road sign means:
All traffic must turn right.
No right turn.
All traffic must go straight ahead.
A road joins from the right.

This sign indicates that there is an intersection ahead. A road joins from the right.

2. This sign means:
Lane ends.
No right turn.
Slippery when wet.
Two-way traffic.

Warning signs prepare drivers for upcoming road conditions and hazards and are usually yellow and black. This sign tells drivers that a lane is ending and that they should prepare to allow traffic to merge safely.

3. Allowing a space cushion between your vehicle and its surroundings is important because it:
Prevents distractions from other vehicles.
Allows you time to react to unexpected situations.
Keeps traffic flowing at a safe pace.
Keeps other drivers alert.

The only way to be sure you will have enough time to react to mistakes made by other drivers is to leave plenty of space between you and the vehicles around you.

4. Where should you go to take the Missouri driver examinations?
Any Missouri State Highway Patrol examination station.
Any Department of Transportation office.
Any Missouri contract office.
The nearest high school driver education class.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol (MSHP) administers the driver examination. To find the testing center nearest you, contact the MSHP or the Department of Revenue.

5. To let others know that you want to be an organ donor, you should:
Complete the organ donor information on the back of your license.
Discuss your decision with your next of kin.
Have two witnesses sign the back of your license.
All of the above.

To ensure your decision to be an organ donor, either enroll online or in person when applying for or renewing your permit or license. Completely fill out the back of your permit or license and inform your family.

6. When you approach a railroad crossing without flashing warning signals or crossing gates, you should:
Cross the tracks immediately and as quickly as possible.
Always stop before crossing the tracks.
Prepare to yield to any train at the crossing.
Speed up to beat any oncoming train.

Always be prepared to yield to any oncoming trains before crossing railroad tracks, particularly if there are no lights or gates controlling the crossing. Never start to cross the tracks until there is room for your entire vehicle on the other side of the tracks. Due to the risk of a vehicle stalling, it is not wise to shift gears when crossing railroad tracks.

7. You come to an intersection with a flashing red light. You must:
Slow down and drive carefully through the intersection.
Turn either right or left, since the road is blocked ahead.
Stop at the intersection and wait for a flashing green light.
Stop at the intersection, then proceed as traffic allows.

A flashing red light means that you must come to a full stop, and then proceed when the way is clear.

8. When making a right turn on a green light, you must:
Maintain your normal driving speed.
Stop and look for nearby police cars.
Yield to pedestrians.
Increase your normal driving speed.

Unless a posted sign prohibits it, you may turn right or left at a steady green light. When turning, you must yield to other vehicles and pedestrians within the intersection.

9. If you see this sign above your lane, you:
May not exit the freeway.
May either continue through the interchange or exit the freeway from your current lane.
May stay in your lane and continue through the interchange.
Must exit the freeway, if you stay in your current lane.

If a yellow panel with the message "Exit only" is on a highway sign, the lane below the sign will not continue through the interchange. Instead, the lane will go off of the roadway to form a ramp. If you are in a lane directly under an "Exit only" sign, you may change lanes to move through the interchange or you must exit the highway.

10. If you are driving so slowly that traffic is backing up behind you, you should:
Decrease your speed.
Pull off the right side of the road and let traffic pass.
Not let the other cars pass your vehicle.
Use your four-way flashers.

Driving more slowly than the flow of traffic can be hazardous. If you are on a two-lane, two-way road and driving so slowly that traffic is backing up behind you, you are required to pull off the road and let the other vehicles pass. Only drive significantly under the speed limit when conditions require it.

11. When you are being tailgated:
Move over to the right, if there is an open lane to your right.
If there is not an open lane to your right, wait until the way is clear ahead and reduce your speed slowly to encourage the tailgater to drive around you.
Never slow down abruptly.
All of the above.

If you are being tailgated by another driver and there is a right lane, move over to the right. If there is no right lane, wait until the road ahead is clear and then reduce your speed slowly. This will encourage the tailgater to drive around you. Never slow down abruptly as this will only increase the risk of your vehicle being hit from behind.

12. The minimum and maximum speed limits on Missouri interstate highways are:
40 mph and 55 mph.
40 mph and 70 mph.
30 mph and 70 mph.

Stay calm and move out of the aggressive driver's way.
Flash your vehicle's lights to let the aggressive driver know he is wrong.

Nothing will happen.
