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 a flashing yellow traffic light mean?
Merging traffic
Proceed with caution.
Pedestrian crossing
Come to a full stop.

A flashing yellow traffic light indicates that you should drive with caution.

2. Distracted drivers are at a greater risk of a crash when they are using which of the following?
CD player
Cell phone
All of the above

Using a cell phone (including a hands-free phone) or any kind of audio device (including a radio or CD player) can be a dangerous distraction and contributes to the risk of a crash.

3. To reduce the effects of headlight glare at night, you should look:
Straight ahead.
Over your shoulder.
At the center of the road
To the right edge of the road.

If oncoming drivers do not dim their headlights for you, keep your eyes on the right side of the road ahead. Do not look directly at the oncoming headlights because the glare may blind you for several seconds.

4. 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.

5. The most important thing to remember about speed management and curves is that you must:
Drive at the posted speed limit as you enter the curve, then slow down at the sharpest part of the curve.
Slow down before you enter the curve.
Accelerate gently before you enter the curve.
Drive at the posted speed limit before, throughout, and after the curve.

The most important thing to remember about driving in curves is that your vehicle’s inertia may make it difficult to turn. To maintain control, it is essential that you slow down before entering the curve.

6. At night, it is hardest to see:
Road signs.
Other motorists.
Street lights.

Compared to signs and other roadside objects, pedestrians are hardest to see at night.

7. Before switching on the ignition, you should:
Be sure only backseat passengers have buckled their seat belts.
Be sure only adult passengers have buckled their seat belts.
Be sure only child passengers have buckled their seat belts.
Be sure all of the vehicle's occupants have buckled their seat belts.

Develop a routine for entering and leaving your car. Before switching on the ignition, buckle your safety belt and see that all passengers do likewise.

8. At a four-way stop:
The driver to arrive first has the right-of-way.
The driver to arrive last has the right-of-way.
One driver should continue driving without stopping.
One driver should wave the other drivers ahead.

At four-way stops, traffic from all four directions must stop. The first vehicle to reach the intersection should move forward first. If two vehicles reach the intersection at the same time, the driver on the left yields to the driver on the right.

9. When entering a street from a driveway, you:
Must drive slowly to allow approaching vehicles and pedestrians time to get out of your way.
Must honk your horn so approaching vehicles and pedestrians know to give you room.
Must stop and proceed only when there are no pedestrians or vehicles approaching.
Can disregard any pedestrians if there is no sidewalk.

Always stop before entering the roadway from a driveway and yield to any approaching vehicles or crossing pedestrians. The stop should be made before crossing the sidewalk area. Failure to stop is unlawful.

10. Roads freeze quickly when they are:
In the sun.

In cold or wet weather, you should take special care on sections of road that are shaded by trees or buildings. These areas freeze more quickly than the rest of the road and are the last parts of the road to dry.

All vehicles driven in New Jersey must be covered by liability insurance. Driving without proper coverage can result in fines, mandated community service, license suspension, and registration suspension.

12. If your brakes fail while you are driving, you should first:
Switch to a higher gear and press the gas pedal.
Switch to neutral and coast.
Switch to a lower gear and pump your brakes.
Turn off the ignition.

If your brakes fail while you are on the road, your first response should be to switch into a lower gear and begin to pump your brake pedal to build up pressure to stop your vehicle. Find a safe place to stop the vehicle and do not drive it again until the brakes have been fixed.

13. Round signs indicate:
No passing zones.

Round signs warn drivers of an upcoming railroad crossing area. Drivers should use extra caution when approaching a railroad crossing.

Speed up to increase the distance between you and the tailgater.

26. Which is not a factor in determining the distance that it takes to stop your vehicle?
