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 leaving a parking space, drivers should:
Look around the vehicle for children and obstructing objects.
Signal to other drivers.

All owners and/or operators of motor vehicles in Texas must have at least the minimum amount of liability insurance.

8. When may drivers leave their vehicle unattended with the engine running?
If they are leaving for just a couple minutes.
If they are idling near a railroad crossing.
If they are idling in an unfamiliar area.

It is illegal for any driver to permit their car to stand idling and unattended without turning off the engine, locking the ignition, removing the key from the ignition, and setting the brake. However, these requirements do not apply to a driver who starts the engine by using a remote starter or other similar device that remotely starts the engine without the key in the ignition.

9. If two vehicles arrive to a four-way stop at the same time:
The vehicle on the left must yield to the vehicle on the right.
