    Correct Answer
    B. Start your vehicle engine with the starting system
    Explanation
    The first thing to do when you want to start your car is to start your vehicle engine with the starting system. This involves turning the key or pressing the start button to initiate the ignition process, which powers up the engine and allows it to run. Once the engine is started, you can proceed with other tasks such as putting on your seat belt, adjusting mirrors, and checking your surroundings. However, starting the engine is the initial step in the process of getting your car ready to drive.

    • A.

      Touching your mirrors

    • B.

      Turning the wheel

    • C.

      Setting the transmission to the correct gear

    • D.

      Trying the acceleration gear

    Correct Answer
    C. Setting the transmission to the correct gear
    Explanation
    After starting a car, the next thing to do is to set the transmission to the correct gear. This is important because it allows the car to move smoothly and safely. Selecting the appropriate gear ensures that the engine's power is effectively transferred to the wheels, enabling the car to accelerate or decelerate as needed. It is a crucial step in operating a vehicle and should be done before attempting to drive or maneuver the car.

  • 3. 

    How do you steer the direction of the vehicle?

    • A.

      By turning the steering wheel to the left

    • B.

      By keeping the steering wheel straight

    • C.

      With the steering wheel

    • D.

      With the speeding gear

    Correct Answer
    C. With the steering wheel
    Explanation
    The steering wheel is the primary control mechanism used to steer the direction of a vehicle. By turning the steering wheel, the driver can change the direction of the vehicle. This is achieved by a combination of mechanical linkages and the turning radius of the wheels. The other options, such as keeping the steering wheel straight or using the speeding gear, are incorrect as they do not directly control the steering of the vehicle.

    What are brakes used for?

    • C.

      To turn the car

    • D.

      To stop the car

    Correct Answer
    B. To slow/stop the vehicle.
    Explanation
    Brakes are used to slow down or stop a vehicle. When the driver applies the brakes, the brake pads or shoes create friction against the wheels, causing them to slow down or come to a complete stop. This is essential for controlling the speed of the vehicle and ensuring safety on the road.

    What are the examples of safety measures while driving?

    • A.

      Listening to music loud while driving

    • B.

      Smoking while driving

    • C.

      Talking while driving

    • D.

      Texting while driving + speeding

    Correct Answer
    D. Texting while driving + speeding
    Explanation
    The examples provided in the question are all activities that can be considered unsafe while driving. However, the correct answer is "Texting while driving + speeding." Texting while driving is a major distraction that takes the driver's attention away from the road, increasing the risk of accidents. Speeding, on the other hand, is a violation of traffic laws and reduces the driver's ability to react to unexpected situations. Therefore, both texting while driving and speeding are safety measures that should be avoided to ensure safe driving.

    Correct Answer
    A. They are used in most countries to set the maximum speed at which road vehicles may legally travel
    Explanation
    Road speed limits are used in most countries to set the maximum speed at which road vehicles may legally travel. This is done to ensure road safety and reduce the risk of accidents. By setting a maximum speed limit, it helps to control the flow of traffic and prevent drivers from driving at excessive speeds, which can increase the likelihood of collisions and make it more difficult for drivers to react to unexpected situations. Speed limits also help to promote consistency and uniformity on the roads, making it easier for drivers to anticipate the actions of other vehicles and maintain a safe driving environment.

The focus is on checking the behavior of drivers and their vehicles, rather than the condition of roads, equipment, or road workers.
