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 a student drops an item near a stopped bus, they should:
Hurry and pick up the item.
Leave the item behind.
Ask the driver to pick up the object.
Have another student pick it up.

It is dangerous for students to retrieve dropped items because doing so could cause them to disappear from the driver's view at a crucial moment. If an item is dropped, the student should get out of the bus's danger zones, get the attention of the driver, and ask the driver to retrieve the item.

2. During a basic vehicle control skills test, what is considered an encroachment?
The vehicle crossing over an exercise boundary line.
A driver executing a single pull-up.
A driver placing the vehicle in neutral and applying the parking brake.
The vehicle stalling while the driver shifts gears.

An encroachment during the basic vehicle control skills test is when an exercise boundary line is touched or crossed by any portion of the applicant's vehicle. Every encroachment will be counted as an error.

3. Before operating a school bus, ____ should be checked.
The left mirror
The right mirror
All mirrors
The inside mirror

It is essential that school bus drivers check all of the bus's mirrors before operating the vehicle. You should always have a maximum viewing area that is consistent with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. If necessary, have the positioning of the mirrors adjusted.

4. While students load and unload a bus, the driver should:
Read a book.
Watch the process and keep an eye on the students.
Talk to other bus drivers.
Listen to the radio.

The driver of a school bus should observe students as they enter or exit the bus to ensure that they are not caught in the door or handrails. It is also important to make sure the students have moved a safe distance away from the unloading area after they have exited the bus.

5. When conducting a vehicle inspection, you must show each of the following, except:
That the oil pressure gauge is working.
That the oil pressure warning light turns off, or that the gauge shows increasing or normal oil pressure.
That the oil temperature gauge, if equipped, rises to the normal operating range.
That the oil pressure gauge comes on when brakes are used.

When checking the oil pressure gauge as part of a vehicle inspection test, you must ensure that it is working. The gauge should show increasing or normal oil pressure, or the oil pressure warning light should turn off. If equipped with one, the oil temperature gauge should begin a gradual rise to the normal operating range.

6. When asked to make a lane change during the skills test, you should:
Make the necessary traffic checks first.
Not use your mirrors.
Cut off other vehicles if needed to follow the instructions.
Not make the lane change if you don’t want to.

You will be asked to make multiple lane changes during the driving skills test. Before changing lanes, you should make the necessary traffic checks and use proper signals. Change lanes smoothly when you can do so safely.

7. During the skills test, if making a turn that requires a stop, you should:
Skid to a stop.
Stop after the stop line to get a better view.
Allow your vehicle to roll.
Keep the front wheels aimed straight ahead.

If you must come to a stop before making a turn during the driving skills test, you should come to a smooth stop behind any stop line, crosswalk, or stop sign. Keep your front wheels aimed straight ahead and do not let your vehicle roll. If stopping behind another vehicle, stop where you are still able to see the rear tires of the vehicle ahead of you.

8. During the basic vehicle control skills test:
A pull-up always counts against the applicant.
A pull-up should be completed at least once.
Stopping without changing direction is not considered a pull-up.
Excessive pull-ups are acceptable in the opinions of some test administrators.

During the basic vehicle control skills test, a pull-up will be scored any time an applicant stops and pulls forward to gain a better position. Stopping without changing direction will not. An excessive number of pull-ups will count as errors.

9. When checking tire condition during the vehicle inspection, you should:
Ensure that the insides of the tires are more worn than the outsides of the tires.
Ensure that the outsides of the tires are more worn than the insides of the tires.
Ensure that the middles of the tires are more worn than the outsides of the tires.
Ensure that the tires have even wear.

When examining your tires during the vehicle inspection test, you should ensure that treads are evenly worn.

10. Drivers should try to stop ____ away from students at a bus stop.
About 100 feet
At least 50 feet
At least 10 feet
Less than 10 feet

A school bus should stop at least 10 feet away from students who are being picked up at a bus stop. This forces the students to walk toward the bus, allowing the driver to observe their movements and better monitor their locations.

11. When should a bus start moving after students have boarded?
As soon as the students are through the door
When the students are near their seats but are still standing
When the students are seated and looking forward
As soon as the students cross the standee line

Once students have boarded a school bus, the driver should wait to move the bus until all of the passengers are seated and looking forward.

Pass the parking space while backing, then pull forward into it.
Pull forward past the parking space, then back into it.
Pull forward into the parking space without passing it first.
Back into the parking space without passing it first.

You may be asked to complete a parallel parking maneuver into a parking space that is to the left of your vehicle. You should drive past the parking space before backing into it while bringing the rear of your vehicle as close to the rear of the space as possible. Your vehicle should be completely within the boundaries of the space.

13. When approaching a railroad crossing while operating a school bus, you should generally:
Stop between 15 and 50 feet before the nearest rail.
Stop 100 feet before the nearest rail.
Stop 10 feet before the nearest rail.
Continue across the tracks without stopping.

In general, school bus drivers should stop before any railroad crossings to check the tracks for approaching trains. Drivers should stop no closer than 15 feet, and no farther than 50 feet, from the nearest rail in order to have the best view of the tracks. They should look and listen for approaching trains before proceeding through the crossing.

14. Properly adjusted outside convex mirrors should allow the driver to see:
Where the front of each rear tire touches the ground.
Where the front of each front tire touches the ground.
The top of the bus.
The muffler.

On a school bus, outside convex mirrors should be adjusted to allow the driver to see at least one traffic lane on either side of the bus; the entire side of the bus up to the mirror mounts; and where the front of each rear tire touches the ground.

15. During a basic vehicle control skills test, you may be asked to:
Parallel park.
Inspect your tires.
Monitor your gauges.
Pull forward into a parking space.

Maneuvers that may be included in the basic vehicle control skills test include straight line backing, offset back/right parking, offset back/left parking, driver side parallel parking, conventional parallel parking, and alley docking.

16. Outside flat mirrors should be adjusted to see ____ behind the bus.
One bus length
50 feet
Four bus lengths

17. If your bus's Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) stops working:
You will not have any working brakes.
The brakes will react more slowly than usual.
You will still have normal braking power.
You should not brake.

If its Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) is not working, a vehicle will still retain its normal braking power. The driver should continue to drive and brake in a normal fashion.

18. When approaching students at a bus stop, you should stop:
As close as possible to the students.
Within an arm’s reach of the students.
At least 10 feet away from the students.
About 80 feet away from the students.

When approaching a bus stop, a school bus driver should come to a full stop at least 10 feet away from the waiting students. By forcing the students to walk to the bus, the driver is better able to keep an eye on their movements and location.

19. A school bus stop:
Can be added by the driver if there is a need.
Should be voted on by the students.
May change, depending on weather conditions.
Should be established by the proper school district authorities.
