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. Highway pavement will be particularly treacherous and most slippery:
If it has been raining several hours.
If it has just begun to rain.
If it has been raining for one to two hours.

Pavement is particularly treacherous when it first begins to rain. Accumulations of dirt and oil mix with the rainwater, creating a greasy film on the roadway.

2. A slow-moving vehicle emblem is:
A rectangular red sign.
A circular green sign.
A diamond-shaped yellow sign.
A triangular orange sign.

The slow-moving vehicle symbol is a reflective orange triangle. Expect vehicles using this emblem to be driving at speeds of 25 mph or slower.

3. This road sign means:
Do not enter.
Roundabout ahead.
No U-turns.

Regulatory signs provide notice to road users of traffic laws that must be obeyed. This sign tells drivers that it is prohibited to make a U-turn.

4. You come to an intersection with a flashing red light. You must:
Slow down and drive carefully through the intersection.
Turn either right or left, since the road is blocked ahead.
Stop at the intersection and wait for a flashing green light.
Stop at the intersection, then proceed as traffic allows.

A flashing red light means that you must come to a full stop, and then proceed when the way is clear.

5. How can you help prevent rear-end collisions?
Avoid sudden stops.
Before stopping, check your mirrors and blind spots for traffic.
Release the gas pedal and let your vehicle slow before applying the brakes.
All of the above.

Stopping suddenly can make it difficult for drivers behind you to avoid a rear-end collision. When stopping, release the accelerator to allow your vehicle to slow. Press the brake pedal by applying steady pressure, activating your brake lights and causing the vehicle to stop smoothly.

6. Which of these statements is true about large trucks?
They take longer to stop than passenger vehicles.
They all have air brakes that allow them to stop quickly.
They are more maneuverable than passenger vehicles.

Large trucks take longer to stop than other vehicles traveling at the same speed. The average passenger vehicle traveling at 55 mph can stop within 400 feet. However, a large truck traveling at the same speed can take almost 800 feet to stop.

7. At a railroad crossing, you must:
Watch for vehicles that must stop at all railroad crossings (school buses, trucks carrying hazardous materials, etc.).
Watch for multiple trains.
Both of the above.

You must approach all railroad crossings with extreme caution and cross only when you know that no train is coming from either direction. Be aware of vehicles that must stop at all railroad crossings, such as school buses and trucks carrying hazardous materials.

8. 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.

9. Two solid white lines painted across a traffic lane show the boundaries of a crosswalk. As a driver, you should know that:
Motor vehicles have the right-of-way over pedestrians in crosswalks.
When pedestrians are in crosswalks, they should be given the right-of-way.
No one has the right-of-way in a crosswalk.
Pedestrians are responsible to stay out of the way of all traffic.

Crosswalk lines show pedestrians where to safely cross a road or street. Crosswalks may be marked by horizontal lines, vertical lines, or a combination of the two. You must always stop for pedestrians who are in a crosswalk.

10. This sign is used to warn drivers that:
The right lane is ending and traffic should merge left.
The road curves ahead.
There are upcoming intersections.

Warning signs are usually yellow with black markings. They alert you to conditions that are immediately ahead. This sign warns drivers that the number of lanes is reduced ahead and that traffic should merge left.

11. What does this road sign mean?
Slow down and prepare to stop if cars are approaching you.
Come to a full stop and go when it is safe to do so.
Proceed carefully through the intersection, not always stopping.
Stop only for traffic on an intersecting road.

A stop sign means that you must come to a full stop and yield the right-of-way to vehicles and pedestrians in or heading toward the intersection. Go again when it is safe.

12. If the traffic light is red and you want to turn right, you can turn:
When the cross traffic has cleared.
After you stop.
Both of the above.

Unless a posted sign prohibits it, you may turn right at a red light after coming to a complete stop. When turning on red, you must yield to other traffic, pedestrians, and bicyclists before proceeding.

13. This sign means:
Trucks only.
Trucks are entering the highway.
Upcoming hill.
Trucks have the right-of-way.

Warning signs are usually diamond-shaped with black markings on a yellow background. They alert drivers to upcoming hazards. This sign indicates that drivers are approaching a steep hill and should prepare to adjust their speeds to continue to drive safely.

14. This sign means:
Side road.
Low clearance.
Merging traffic.
Prepare to stop.

Warning signs prepare drivers for upcoming road conditions and hazards and are usually yellow with black markings. This sign tells drivers to be aware of potential traffic entering from an upcoming side road.

15. A leaking exhaust system can:
Cause excessive oil use.
Require your vehicle to have a tune-up sooner than normal.
Make you drowsy while driving.
Set grass fires on country roads.

The exhaust system helps remove toxic gases, reduce the noise, and cool the hot gases coming from a running engine. Fumes from a leaky exhaust system can cause death in a very short time. They can also make you drowsy while driving.

16. To avoid traction loss on wet roads, you should:
Make abrupt turns.
Apply the brakes firmly.
Slow down.

To prevent hydroplaning, lower your speed in response to wet roads and keep your tires in good condition. If you detect a loss of control, take your foot off the gas, do not apply the brakes, maintain the direction of the vehicle, and allow the vehicle to slow to a manageable speed.

17. This white sign means:
The railroad crossing is controlled. Continue at your regular speed.
Look, listen, and prepare to stop at the crossing if necessary.
Stop at the railroad tracks and wait for a signal before crossing.

When approaching a railroad crossing, you must look, listen, slow down, and prepare to stop. Let any trains pass before you proceed.

18. You must not drive your vehicle at a speed greater than:
The maximum speed limit.
A speed that is faster than is reasonable and prudent.
A speed that is safe for existing conditions.
All of the above.

You must not drive at a speed that is faster than is reasonable and prudent. You must drive at a speed that is appropriate for the area where you are driving, the type and condition of surrounding traffic, the presence of pedestrians, the weather, the quality of the road, and light conditions. You must drive within legal speed limits.

19. Before stopping your vehicle at a traffic signal or sign, you should:
Press down hard on the accelerator.
Check your mirrors for surrounding traffic.
Set the parking brake.

When stopping your vehicle on the roadway, first check your mirrors for traffic. Be aware of surrounding drivers as you release the accelerator and allow your vehicle to slow. Move your foot to the brake pedal and press with steady pressure for a smooth stop.

20. Drivers turning left must yield to:
Oncoming vehicles traveling straight or turning right.
Passing cars.
No one in particular.

Drivers making a left turn must yield to all vehicles approaching from the opposite direction. This includes bicycles and motorcycles.

21. Allow a larger space cushion than usual when stopping:
On an incline.
At an intersection.
At a stop sign.
At a toll plaza.

You should allow more space in front of your vehicle than usual when you are stopped on an uphill slope. If the vehicle in front of you rolls backward toward your vehicle when traffic begins to move again, it is less likely that there will be a collision.

22. You are coming to an intersection with a flashing red light. You should:
Slow down and yield the right-of-way.
Slow down and drive carefully through the intersection.
Come to a complete stop, check the traffic, and go when it is safe to do so.

A flashing red traffic light means the same thing as a stop sign. You must come to a complete stop, yield to other traffic and pedestrians, and then proceed when it safe to do so.

23. This sign means:
Change in direction or narrowing of roadway.
No right turn.
No passing zone.

This sign warns a driver of a change in direction or a narrowing of the road. A driver may find several of these signs on the outside of a sharp curve or on approaches to a narrow bridge.

24. When preparing to make a left turn from a two-way street, you should drive:
Near the right-hand side of the road.
Near the centerline.
On the left of the centerline.

When you are turning left from a two-way street, begin in the lane closest to the centerline and start your turn just before the front of your car reaches the center of the intersection. Do not cut the corner. Steering hand-over-hand, turn into the first available legal lane.

25. It is illegal for a person 21 years of age or older to drive with a minimum blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of:
0.05 percent.
0.08 percent.
0.02 percent.
0.1 percent.

For drivers age 21 or older, it is illegal to operate a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08 percent or higher. Driving while under the influence of alcohol is not only illegal, but dangerous.

26. You should sound a sharp blast of your horn when:
The driver ahead of you is driving under the speed limit.
You exit an alley and cannot see what is ahead.
Another vehicle is in danger of hitting you.
You want to pass another vehicle.

In situations that present no immediate danger, a light tap of the horn is generally sufficient to get the attention of others. A sharp blast of the horn should be used in situations of actual danger, such as when another vehicle is in danger of hitting you. You should not use your horn to encourage someone to drive faster or get out of the way.

27. To see objects in their blind spot when changing lanes, drivers should check:
Only the left outside mirror.
Over their left or right shoulder.
Only the inside rearview mirror.

Your vehicle's blind spots are the areas that you cannot see in your mirrors. Look over the appropriate shoulder to check your blind spot when changing lanes.

28. On a road which has no sidewalks, a pedestrian should walk on the:
Side of the road which has the lightest traffic.
Same side of the road on which traffic is moving.
Side of the road facing oncoming traffic.
Side of the road which has the heaviest traffic.

Pedestrians should walk on the side of the road facing the traffic in the lane nearest them.

29. If you reach an intersection where you wish to turn but you are not in the proper lane, you should:
Quickly cut across traffic to make your turn.
Turn on your blinker and make the turn from your current lane.
Drive to the next intersection and make your turn then.
Safely change lanes then put your vehicle in reverse to go back to the intersection.

Never make last-minute turns. If you reach an intersection where you wish to turn but you are not in the proper lane to make the turn, drive to the next intersection and then make the turn from the proper lane.

30. If another driver cuts you off in traffic, you should:
Pull next to the driver and yell at them.
Let it go.
Flash your high beams at the driver.
Get back at the other driver by cutting them off.

To avoid the dangers of road rage, you should never take it personally if another driver cuts you off in traffic. Just let it go and continue driving safely.

31. What can you do to reduce road rage?
Always signal your intention when changing lanes.
Talk on your cell phone while driving.
Use your horn frequently.

To do your part to prevent road rage, you should follow laws, signs, signals, and pavement markings. Always signal your intention when changing lanes.

32. When turning or changing lanes, you must:
Always signal your intentions, even when no visible traffic is present.
Signal only if there is visible traffic.
Signal only when driving at night.
Signal only when driving in heavy traffic at night.

Always signal your intentions when changing lanes, turning, or pulling away from a curb. Do not allow yourself to become lazy and form the bad habit of not following this law.

33. When turning left at an intersection:
You should always yield to oncoming traffic and pedestrians.
Oncoming traffic and pedestrians should yield to you.
You should never yield to oncoming traffic and pedestrians.

Drivers making left turns must yield to oncoming traffic that is traveling straight. Drivers must always yield to pedestrians.

34. Distracted driving may be caused by:
Eating, drinking, or smoking.
Talking or texting on a cellular phone.
Changing a radio station or CD.
All of the above.

It is estimated that drivers make 200 decisions for every mile traveled, making it vital that drivers focus their full attention on the task of driving. Performing any additional task can create a dangerous distraction.

35. This road sign means:
Divided highway begins.
A steep grade is ahead.
The overpass ahead has a low clearance.
Two lanes of traffic moving in opposite directions are about to merge.

This sign warns that the overpass ahead has a low clearance. Do not proceed if your vehicle is taller than the height indicated (in this case, 13 feet, 6 inches).
