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. If you’re going to turn left onto a one-way street, you should complete the turn into:
The right lane.
The lane closest to your previous lane.
Either lane.
Neither lane.

You should always turn from the lane that is closest to the direction you want to go. Turn into the lane closest to your previous lane.

2. This sign means:
Don't drink if you are going to drive.
Slippery when wet.
Road curves ahead.
You are approaching a hill.

This sign warns that the road is slippery when wet.

3. This sign means:
No U-turn.
Do not enter.

This sign is placed at the beginning of one-way streets and ramps to indicate that you must not continue driving in your current direction.

4. You have the right-of-way when turning left on which of the following traffic signals?
A solid green light
A flashing yellow light
A green arrow pointing left
A flashing red light

A green steady arrow means you may pass through the intersection in the direction that the arrow is pointing. Oncoming traffic is required to stop for turning traffic.

5. This sign means:
U-turns are prohibited.
U-turns are permitted.
Winding road ahead.
Sharp left turn ahead.

A regulatory sign displaying a red circle with a red slash through the middle indicates that a specific action is prohibited. U-turns are not permitted where this sign is posted.

6. Which of the following is true about driving on a wet roadway?
As you drive faster, your tires become less effective.
Water does not affect cars with good tires.
Deep water is less dangerous than shallow water.
As you decrease your speed, the roadway becomes more slippery.

The faster you drive on a wet roadway, the less effective your tires will be at wiping the water from the road. If your speed becomes excessive enough, your tires will lose their grip on the road entirely and you will begin to hydroplane (that is, to slide down the road on a film of water).

7. A bicyclist who doesn’t obey traffic laws:
Is in the right because bicyclists don’t have to obey traffic laws.
Can be ticketed.
Will always receive a warning from law enforcement.
Will have their bicycle impounded.

All bicyclists have the same rights, duties, and responsibilities as drivers of motor vehicles. Motorists and bicyclists who do not obey traffic laws can be ticketed.

8. 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.

9. Traffic signals sometimes display arrows to control turns from specific lanes. A green arrow:
Is used only on one-way streets.
Has the same meaning as a circular green traffic light, but traffic must turn in the direction indicated by the arrow.
Means that you may proceed, but only if the green arrow is accompanied by a circular green light.
Points the way to an airport.

A green arrow has the same meaning as a circular green traffic light, but traffic in the indicated lane must turn in the direction shown by the arrow.

10. This sign means:
Trucks are permitted on an upcoming narrow bridge.
The bridge ahead is open to one-way traffic only.
The bridge ahead is wide enough for only one car at a time.
The bridge ahead may be too narrow to meet or pass a truck.

Warning signs are used to warn drivers about upcoming hazardous conditions and are usually yellow with black markings. This sign warns drivers that an upcoming bridge may be too narrow to meet or pass a truck and that they should be careful.

11. If you are driving on the interstate and pass your exit, you should:
Quickly cut across traffic to make your turn.
Make a U-turn to go back to the exit.
Continue driving and use the next exit.
Put your vehicle in reverse to go back to the exit.

Don’t make a last-minute turn into an exit. If you pass your exit, you must go to the next one.

12. A person who drives much slower than the speed limit:
Is a very safe driver.
Always has the right-of-way.
Should not let following cars pass.
May create a dangerous driving environment.

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.

13. You are involved in an accident and another person is injured. You should:
Moved the injured away from the scene immediately.
Always leave the injured where they are.
Not move the injured unnecessarily. Keep the injured warm and administer first aid.
Stay away from the injured.

After an accident, do not move the injured unnecessarily. Unskilled handling can make serious injuries out of minor ones. Keep the injured warm until skilled help arrives. If there is severe bleeding, attempt to stop the flow of blood with direct pressure.

14. This sign means:
One-way traffic.
Two-way left turn.
Two-way traffic.
Minimum speed limit.

Regulation signs regulate traffic speed and movement, displaying rules which drivers must obey. This sign tells drivers the direction in which they must drive when turning onto a one-way street.

15. A driver should be extra alert to motorcyclists, bicyclists, and pedestrians because:
They’re difficult to see in traffic.
They obey different traffic laws than larger motor vehicles.
They always have the right-of-way.
They don’t have rearview mirrors.

In many collisions with motorcycles, bicycles, and pedestrians, drivers reported that they were looking but still did not see the smaller vehicle or pedestrian. These can be more difficult to spot in traffic than passenger vehicles because they are smaller, may move faster, and have less noticeable lighting. To prevent collisions with these smaller and less protected road users, drivers should always be alert to the presence of motorcycles, bikes, and pedestrians.

16. By driving a motor vehicle on the roadways in Oregon, you have agreed to:
Maintain liability insurance for as long as you drive.
Take a breath, blood, or urine test if arrested for driving under the influence.
Post bail or appear in court if arrested for a traffic violation.
Keep your vehicle’s equipment in safe operating condition.

Under the Implied Consent Law, by driving a vehicle in the state, you give your consent to take a breath, blood, or urine test when asked to do so by a police officer if you are arrested for driving under the influence of intoxicants (DUII). Refusing to take one of these tests when asked will result in potential legal repercussions.

17. Do not pass:
On a hill or curve.
When school bus lights are flashing.
When approaching an intersection.
All of the above.

You should never pass if there is an oncoming vehicle in the passing lane, if your view is blocked by a curve or hill, at an intersection, before or on a railroad crossing or bridge, or in any other no passing zone. Unless you are on the opposite side of a multilane roadway with a median or shared center turn lane, you may not pass a stopped school bus that has its flashing red lights activated.

18. If two drivers arrive at the same time to a four-way intersection controlled by stop signs:
The driver on the right has the right-of-way.
The driver on the left has the right-of-way.
One driver may continue driving without stopping.
One driver should honk to indicate that they are giving up the right-of-way.

Yield the right-of-way to the driver on your right at a four-way intersection if you both arrive to the intersection at the same time. You may then proceed when it is safe to do so.

19. Which of the following is a safe way to drive through a curve?
Slow down as you enter, speed up as you exit.
Maintain a constant speed throughout the curve.
Speed up as you enter, slow down as you exit.
Stay near the right edge of your lane.

You should slow down as you enter a curve and increase your speed gradually as you exit. Increasing your speed as you enter a curve will make it more difficult to control your vehicle.

20. At an intersection with a stop sign, you should stop and:
Check your rearview mirror for cars tailgating.
Move when the vehicle ahead of you moves.
Look right first, then left, then right again.
Look left first, then right, then left again.

When stopped at an intersection, you should first look to your left, as vehicles coming from the left are closer to you than vehicles coming from the right. Look to your right, then look to your left again, in case there are any vehicles coming from that direction that you did not see at first glance.

21. This sign means:
Curves ahead.
Divided highway starts.
Divided highway ends.
Bumps in the road.

This sign warns drivers that the divided highway ends ahead.

22. A speed limit is:
The maximum or minimum legal speed you can travel on a road under dangerous conditions.
The maximum or minimum legal speed you can travel on a road under ideal conditions.
The suggested speed to travel on a road under ideal conditions.
None of the above.

A speed limit is the maximum or minimum legal speed you can travel on a road under ideal conditions. You may drive more slowly than the posted speed, but it is illegal to drive any faster. You must drive more slowly where signs or signs indicate a school zone or work zone speed limit. If conditions such as road construction or bad weather make the posted speed unsafe, drive under the speed limit.

23. Downward-facing triangular signs:
Indicate school zones.
Tell drivers to yield.
Indicate construction zones.
Indicate railroad crossings.

Downward-facing triangular signs usually indicate that drivers should yield. Once the road is clear of traffic or pedestrians and it is safe to do so, drivers may proceed.

24. Crossbuck signs indicate:
Railroad crossings.
School zones.
No passing zones.

Crossbuck signs tell drivers to yield to trains at a railroad crossing. Drivers should not try to outdrive a train.

25. A driver entering public traffic from a driveway or private road:
Has the right-of-way.
Should yield to drivers already on the public road.
May force their way into traffic.
Can assume that other drivers will change lanes to make room.

If you are entering traffic from a driveway or private road, you should yield to drivers already on the public road. Merge safely into traffic when you are able to do so.

26. If your vehicle begins to skid, you should:
Turn your steering wheel into traffic.
Turn your steering wheel in the direction you want to go.
Release the steering wheel.

If your vehicle begins to skid, remain calm. Steer in the direction that you want to go and try not to overcorrect.

27. Round signs indicate:
No passing zones.
School zones.
Upcoming railroad crossings.

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

28. When may you proceed through an intersection that has a stop sign but no stop line or crosswalk?
After slowing down to verify that there is no cross traffic
After coming to a complete stop and verifying that it is safe to proceed
After you have stopped at least 20 feet prior to the intersection
After slowing down to a speed of 10 mph

Stop before the stop line or crosswalk at any intersection that is controlled by a stop sign. If there is a stop sign but no stop line or crosswalk, stop before entering the intersection and proceed when it is safe to do so.

29. This sign means:
Traffic signal.
Fire station.
T intersection.
Left turn signal.

Warning signs prepare drivers for upcoming road conditions and hazards and are usually yellow with black markings. This sign alerts drivers to an upcoming traffic signal. They should be prepared to respond to a yellow light, red light, and/or cross traffic.

30. A single broken white line down the center of a two-lane road indicates:
Lanes are moving in opposite directions and drivers are not permitted to pass.
Lanes are moving in opposite directions and drivers are permitted to pass when it is safe to do so.
Lanes are moving in the same direction and drivers are not permitted to pass.
Lanes are moving in the same direction and drivers are permitted to pass when it is safe to do so.

White lines are used to separate traffic moving in the same direction. Dashed lines indicate that drivers directly next to the line are permitted to pass when it is safe to do so.

31. To help prevent crashes, you should:
Communicate with other road users.
Ignore other drivers on the road.
Drive only on side streets and back roads.
Avoid driving during rush hour.

Crashes often happen because one driver does something that other road users are not expecting. You should communicate with other motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians by doing things like signaling when slowing down, stopping, or changing direction. Use your emergency signals or horn when appropriate.

32. From the center lane, which maneuver(s) can you perform?
You may make left turns.
You may make U-turns.
You may pass slow-moving traffic.
All of the above.

This sign indicates where a lane is reserved for the exclusive use of left-turning vehicles from either direction. Such a lane may not be used for passing or for through-traffic.

33. When approaching an uncontrolled intersection, a driver should:
Maintain their speed and proceed.
Stop at the intersection, check in all directions, and proceed.
Yield to all other drivers.
Be prepared to yield.

At an intersection where there is no stop sign or traffic signal, you should yield to a vehicle approaching the intersection from the right. However, always be prepared to yield to avoid a crash. Do this by taking your foot off the accelerator, covering the brake, and looking left, right, and left again.

34. On the freeway, you see a "Merging traffic“ sign. You should:
Honk at incoming traffic.
Always remain at your present speed.
Speed up to avoid congesting traffic.
Move to another lane, if safe, to let traffic enter.

When on a roadway with two or more lanes, you should make room for entering vehicles. If there is no one driving next to you, move over one lane.

35. Which is the most common cause of traffic crashes?
