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. When approaching a T intersection, drivers:
Should yield the right-of-way to cross traffic.
Have the right-of-way.
Should force their way into traffic.
Should back up and turn around.

When approaching a T intersection while traveling on the street ending at the intersection, you must stop and yield the right-of-way to vehicles on the crossroad. Only proceed when it is safe to do so.

2. You are waiting to turn left at a multilane intersection and opposing traffic is blocking your view. You should:
Accelerate rapidly when the first lane you need to cross is clear.
Wait until you can see all the lanes you need to cross before going ahead with your turn.
Wait for an oncoming driver to wave you across the intersection.
Edge your car into each lane of opposing traffic as soon as it clears.

You should never start a left turn until you can see that all the lanes you need to cross are clear and that you can safely make the turn.

3. Who must yield when a driver is turning and a pedestrian is crossing without a traffic light?
Whoever started moving last
The driver
Whoever is slower
The pedestrian

Drivers must yield to pedestrians when they are crossing at any intersection without a traffic light, whether or not there is a crosswalk.

4. “Highway hypnosis” is a driving condition that can result from:
Staring at the roadway for long periods of time.
Frequent rest stops.
Too much sleep the night before your trip.
Short trips on expressways.

"Highway hypnosis” happens when you stare straight ahead at the roadway for long periods of time and stop actively scanning ahead, behind, and around your vehicle. This can lead you to zone out, making you very likely to crash into traffic slowing or stopping ahead of you.

5. When approaching a steady red traffic light, drivers should:
Drive through the intersection if there is no crossing traffic.
Continue driving, as they have the right-of-way.
Stop only if a police officer is nearby.
Come to a complete stop.

A steady red traffic light indicates that drivers must come to a complete stop. Driving through a red light is against the law and is extremely dangerous. Drivers may turn right on a steady red light if there is no sign prohibiting a turn on red.

6. When you see or hear an emergency vehicle coming, you should:
Stop immediately and let the vehicle pass.
Drive as far toward the right side of the road as is safe and stop.
Proceed slowly and permit the vehicle to pass.
Keep moving slowly, staying to the right side of the road.

When driving on a two-lane roadway or undivided highway, you must yield to an emergency vehicle using its lights and/or siren, regardless of the direction from which it is approaching. Immediately drive as near as possible to the right side of the road and stop, taking care not to stop within an intersection.

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

When parallel parking your vehicle, your wheels should be within 18 inches of the curb. Only park where you will not be disruptive to traffic and where drivers can clearly see your vehicle from every direction.

8. If worried, nervous, angry, or crying, a driver:
Will drive no differently than they would if they were thinking more clearly.
Can drive faster because they are more in touch with their senses.
Should take the time to focus on driving before starting the engine.
Should call a friend to vent while driving.

You may not be able to drive well if you are worried, excited, crying, angry, or depressed. Emotions can distract you from your driving because your mind is focused on something else. Take time to calm down and get focused before driving.

9. Traffic signs and pavement markings:
Must always be obeyed.
Are merely suggestions.
Must be followed only when there is other traffic.
Must be followed only when a police officer is present.

Traffic flow is controlled by pavement markings, traffic islands, signals, and signs. These devices inform drivers of conditions on the roadway and help guide drivers safely to their destinations. You must always obey traffic signs, signals, and pavement markings.

10. Your tire blows out while you are driving. You should:
Slam on your brakes.
Hold your steering wheel tightly and slow to a stop.
Keep driving normally.
Turn on your emergency flashers and continue driving.

If you experience a tire blowout, do not immediately apply the brakes. Grip the steering wheel firmly and steer to remain in your traffic lane. Reduce your speed gradually by releasing the accelerator and staying off the brakes. Once you are moving very slowly, apply the brakes lightly and pull off the road into a safe area.

11. Is it legal cross a double solid yellow centerline to pass?
If there is no oncoming traffic.
If the vehicle ahead of you is driving under the speed limit.

Two solid yellow lines down the center of a two-way road mean that neither lane of traffic may cross the lines, unless they are turning off of the roadway. A driver can cross double yellow lines when turning into or out of a driveway or entrance to a business. No passing is allowed over a solid yellow line.

12. What does a lane control signal with a steady yellow X above a reversible lane indicate?
The signal is about to change to a red X.
The signal is about to change to a green arrow.
Drivers may drive normally in this lane.
Drivers may drive slowly in this lane.

Lane control signals are used when the direction of the flow of traffic in a specific lane changes throughout the day. They are used to show which lanes of traffic are open and closed, as well as to show if toll booths are open or closed. When a lane control signal contains a steady yellow X, drivers should clear the indicated lane because the signal is about to change to a red X.

13. Drivers should use their low beam headlights:
When driving in fog, dust, or rain.
When following closely behind another vehicle at night.
Within 500 feet of an approaching vehicle when driving at night.
All of the above.

Use low beam headlights when driving at night and following closely behind another vehicle or within 500 feet of a vehicle approaching from the opposite direction. Use low beam headlights when driving in fog, rain, dust, sleet, or snow.

14. You are coming to an intersection with a flashing yellow light. You should:
Stop and wait for the light to change.
Make a U-turn because the intersection is closed.
Drive carefully through the intersection.
Prepare to stop; the light is about to turn red.

A flashing yellow light means that you should proceed through the intersection slowly and with caution. Scan your eyes across traffic in both directions.

15. When driving on slippery roads, you should:
Use alternate routes.
Drive as you would on dry roads.
Increase your following distance.
Avoid crossing bridges or intersections.

Road hazard sign.
Interstate route sign.

17. All automotive crashes must be reported within ____ days.

If you are involved in a crash that is not investigated by a law enforcement officer and the crash has not resulted in injury or death of a person or damage to property of $1,000 or more, you must make a written report of the crash and file it with the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) no later than the 10th day after the date of the crash.

18. When turning onto a one-way street, drivers should:
Always turn into the right lane.
Always turn into the left lane.
Turn into the lane that will interfere the most with traffic.

Your vehicle has two or more occupants.
You are driving more slowly than the flow of traffic.
You are driving more quickly than the flow of traffic.
You are trying to get somewhere quickly.

20. A leaky exhaust system in your vehicle is dangerous because it can cause:
A loss of hearing.
Carbon monoxide poisoning.
Poor engine performance.

The exhaust system carries exhaust gas out of the vehicle and prevents fumes from entering into the passenger compartment. To prevent carbon monoxide poisoning, keep your exhaust system free of leaks. Replace all defective parts immediately.

21. You are driving along a street and hear a siren. You cannot immediately see the emergency vehicle. You should:
Keep driving until you see the vehicle.
Pull to the curb and look to see if it is on your street.
Slow down. Don't stop until you see it.
Speed up and turn at the next intersection.

If you hear a siren or an air horn close by but do not know exactly where the emergency vehicle is, safely pull over to the right side of the road and stop until you are sure it is not headed toward you.

Your insurance and registration information.
