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. When driving on wet pavement, it's important to remember:
That pavement is especially slippery right after it starts to rain.
That wet roads can cause hydroplaning.
To give yourself additional space when coming to a stop.
All of the above.

Wet roadway surfaces can be dangerously slick, especially immediately following a rainfall. When you are driving on wet roads, your vehicle is traveling on a thin layer of oil, dirt, and water. Slow down when there is heavy rain, standing water, or slush on the road to reduce the risk of your wheels losing traction on the slick surface.

2. This sign means:
There is a detour ahead.
You must stop for flaggers.
The road ahead is closed to traffic.
The highway ahead is undergoing maintenance.

Construction and maintenance signs are orange-colored and are used to notify drivers of unusual or potentially dangerous conditions in or near work areas. This sign warns drivers that they are approaching a construction zone and that they should prepare to lower their speed and drive with extraordinary caution.

3. When stopped behind a motorcycle, drivers should allow the rider a distance of at least:
One full vehicle length.
Three full vehicle lengths.
Two feet.
Four feet.

Stop a safe distance behind motorcyclists at intersections, signals, or crossings. A full vehicle length is recommended to help prevent impact with the motorcycle should your vehicle be hit from the rear. In dry conditions, motorcycles can stop more quickly than cars, so being aware and alert at all times can help prevent a collision.

4. A yellow and black diamond-shaped sign:
Warns you about conditions on or near the road.
Helps direct you to cities and towns ahead.
Tells you about traffic laws and regulations.
Tells you about road construction ahead.

Warning signs, which tell you about conditions on or near the road ahead, are usually diamond-shaped with black symbols or words on a yellow background.

5. On a road with three or more lanes, a vehicle entering a lane from the right:
Always has the right-of-way.
Must yield the right-of-way to a vehicle entering the same lane from the left.
Should be allowed the right-of-way by a vehicle entering the same lane from the left.
Does not need to use its blinker.

On a road divided into three or more lanes with traffic moving in the same direction, a vehicle entering a lane of traffic from the right must yield the right-of-way to a vehicle entering the same lane of traffic from the left.

6. 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.

7. This road sign means:
Road widens ahead.
Lane reduction; the right lane ends soon.
Highway entrance ramp ahead.
Lane reduction; the left lane ends soon.

This sign indicate that the right lane ends ahead.

8. A reflective orange triangle on the back of a vehicle indicates that:
It is a slow-moving vehicle.
It is an ambulance.
It is a school bus.
The vehicle is broken.

A reflective orange triangle on the rear of a vehicle means the vehicle is traveling at speeds slower than 25 mph. You may see this decal on construction equipment, farm vehicles, and horse-drawn wagons or carriages.

9. You are coming to an intersection and have a green light. Pedestrians are crossing against the red. You should:
Honk your horn.
Speed up and pass in front of the pedestrians.
Stop to let the pedestrians cross safely.
Drive close to the pedestrians and frighten them so they’ll think twice before crossing against a red light.

Yield to pedestrians and cars that may be caught in an intersection when you have a green light. Be careful around pedestrians under every circumstance.

10. If you stop along the road at night:
Turn off all your lights.
Use your parking lights only.
Use your headlights only.
Turn on your emergency flashers and leave your low beams turned on.

If you stop along the road at night, turn on your emergency flashers and leave your low beam headlights turned on. Be sure that other road users will be able to clearly see your vehicle.

11. If you need to slow down while driving on a slippery road, the first thing you should do is:
Firmly apply your brakes.
Take your foot off the gas pedal.
Apply your parking brake.
Pump your brakes.

To slow down on a slippery road, you should first take your foot off the gas pedal. If you need to slow down even more, gently apply a slow, steady pressure to your brake pedal.

12. This sign is used to warn drivers:
That the right lane ends and traffic should merge left.
That the road curves ahead.
About upcoming intersections.
About road construction.

This sign indicates that the right lane on a multilane roadway ends ahead. Traffic in the right lane must merge left.

13. When making a left turn, you should not:
Signal to other drivers.
Cut the corner.
Slow down.
Move to the center or far left lane.

You should slow down and activate your left turn signal before making a left turn. Be careful not to cut the corner short, as this may interfere with other vehicles.

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.

Two-thirds of what it is when the vehicle is stationary.
One-fifth of what it is when the vehicle is stationary.
Three-fifths of what it is when the vehicle is stationary.
Four-fifths of what it is when the vehicle is stationary.

As your speed increases, your field of vision decreases. When driving 60 mph, your field of vision is reduced to one-fifth of what your field of vision is when your vehicle is stationary.

23. 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.

24. Diagonal stripes sloping downward left on a barricade or panel mean:
The driver should stop.
The driver should bear to the right.
The driver should bear to the left.
The driver should drive in a straight line.

The diagonal stripes on a barricade or vertical panel guide drivers in the direction in which they should pass. Stripes sloping downward and to the right mean the driver should bear to the right. Conversely, stripes sloping downward and to the left mean bear to the left.

25. When parallel parking, you should park within ____ inches of the curb.

Blow your horn, steer right, and brake.
Stay in the center of your lane, blow your horn, and brake.

If another vehicle is approaching you head-on in your lane, you should first honk your horn to attract attention. If the other driver does not move over, try to escape to the right. If you swerve left and the other driver corrects at the last instant, you will still crash. If a collision is unavoidable, brake firmly and steadily. Every mile per hour you slow down will reduce the impact.

28. If involved in an accident with an unattended vehicle, drivers:
May continue driving without stopping.
Should find the vehicle's owner or leave a written note describing the situation.
Should not contact their insurance agency.
May leave the scene without leaving notice.

You are on a two-way road.
You are on a one-way road.
The road is under repair.
