Alyssas (Fake) Permit Test - Quiz

Ya know, Alyssa's all-important driving questions for her test that she's going to PASS. Because of Bueller's help, of course :D


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What do the no-zones represent?

    • A.

      Areas you should avoid

    • B.

      The truck driver's blindspots

    • C.

      Areas you'll be safest around a truck

    • D.

      Both a and b

    Correct Answer
    D. Both a and b
    Explanation
    The no-zones represent both areas you should avoid and the truck driver's blind spots. These are areas around a truck where the driver has limited or no visibility, such as the sides and rear of the truck. It is important to stay out of these areas to avoid potential accidents or collisions.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    True or false: you can pass this line.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The correct answer is False because the question is asking if it is possible to pass the line, implying that passing the line is not allowed. Therefore, the statement "you can pass this line" is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    What does this sign mean?

    • A.

      Yield

    • B.

      No passing

    • C.

      Road work ahead

    • D.

      Curve ahead

    Correct Answer
    B. No passing
    Explanation
    The sign with the text "No passing" means that it is prohibited to overtake or pass other vehicles on the road. This sign is used to ensure the safety of all drivers by preventing risky maneuvers that could lead to accidents. It is a reminder for drivers to maintain their current position and not attempt to pass any vehicles in front of them.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    T o F All regulatory signs are rectangular in shape

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Not all regulatory signs are rectangular in shape. While many regulatory signs, such as stop signs and speed limit signs, are indeed rectangular, there are also regulatory signs that are circular, triangular, or have other shapes. These signs are used to convey different types of regulatory information and may indicate different rules or regulations on the road. Therefore, the statement that all regulatory signs are rectangular is incorrect.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    In rain, your speed should be about how many mph slower than the speed limit?

    • A.

      5

    • B.

      10

    • C.

      15

    • D.

      92

    Correct Answer
    B. 10
    Explanation
    In rain, your speed should be about 10 mph slower than the speed limit. This is because rain reduces visibility and creates slippery road conditions, which can make it harder to control your vehicle and react to unexpected situations. Slowing down allows you to maintain better control and reduces the risk of accidents.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    A solid green traffic light assures you of the right of way and clear path of travel

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    A solid green traffic light does not assure you of the right of way and clear path of travel. While a green light indicates that you have permission to proceed, it does not guarantee that the way is clear. It is important to always check for any potential hazards or obstructions before proceeding through an intersection.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Under normal highway conditions, a driver should look ahead of his or her car a distance equal to at least how many seconds

    • A.

      2

    • B.

      4

    • C.

      8

    • D.

      12

    Correct Answer
    D. 12
    Explanation
    Under normal highway conditions, a driver should look ahead of his or her car a distance equal to at least 12 seconds. This means that the driver should visually scan the road ahead to anticipate any potential hazards or obstacles that may arise within that time frame. By doing so, the driver can maintain a safe following distance, react promptly to any sudden changes, and make informed decisions while driving.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Usual following distance (on paper)

    • A.

      2 seconds

    • B.

      3

    • C.

      4

    • D.

      6

    Correct Answer
    B. 3
    Explanation
    The usual following distance is 3 seconds. This means that a driver should maintain a distance of at least 3 seconds behind the vehicle in front of them. This allows for enough time to react to any sudden changes or emergencies on the road. It is important to maintain a safe following distance to prevent accidents and give enough space for braking or maneuvering if necessary.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Highway following distance

    • A.

      2

    • B.

      3

    • C.

      4

    • D.

      6

    Correct Answer
    C. 4
    Explanation
    The answer 4 is the most appropriate option for the given question "Highway following distance". This suggests that the ideal following distance on a highway should be 4. This distance allows for a safe and adequate space between vehicles, giving drivers enough time to react and brake if necessary. It also helps to reduce the risk of accidents and allows for smoother traffic flow.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    How can you see if there is a car in your blind spot?

    • A.

      Look in your rear view mirror

    • B.

      Don't look. If there's a car, it won't hurt you.

    • C.

      Look in your outside mirror

    • D.

      Do a headcheck

    Correct Answer
    D. Do a headcheck
    Explanation
    To see if there is a car in your blind spot, you need to do a headcheck. This involves physically turning your head and looking over your shoulder to check the area that is not visible in your rearview or side mirrors. This is important because blind spots are areas around your vehicle where other vehicles may not be visible, and relying solely on mirrors may not give you a complete view. By doing a headcheck, you can ensure that there is no car in your blind spot before changing lanes or making a maneuver.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    What is a good rule of thumb when your vehicle is out of control (tire blow out, hydroplaning)

    • A.

      Maintain normal speed

    • B.

      Make no sudden changes in speed or steering maneuvers

    • C.

      Reduce speed

    • D.

      Increase speed and turn quickly to the right

    Correct Answer
    B. Make no sudden changes in speed or steering maneuvers
    Explanation
    When your vehicle is out of control, such as experiencing a tire blowout or hydroplaning, it is important to make no sudden changes in speed or steering maneuvers. This is a good rule of thumb because sudden movements can further destabilize the vehicle and increase the risk of accidents. By maintaining a steady speed and avoiding sudden changes in direction, the driver can have better control over the vehicle and potentially minimize the potential damage or harm caused by the loss of control.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Who goes first at an intersection

    • A.

      The one in the hurry

    • B.

      The one that got there first

    • C.

      The oldest one

    • D.

      The one on the left

    Correct Answer
    B. The one that got there first
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "The one that got there first." At an intersection, the general rule is that the vehicle that arrives first has the right of way. This is to ensure a fair and orderly flow of traffic. By giving priority to the vehicle that arrived first, it helps to prevent confusion and potential accidents. It is important for drivers to be aware of this rule and to follow it to maintain safety on the road.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    How far away must a car park on a curve or a hill to be visible?

    • A.

      100 feet

    • B.

      150

    • C.

      200

    • D.

      250

    Correct Answer
    B. 150
    Explanation
    A car must park at least 150 feet away on a curve or a hill to ensure visibility. This distance is necessary to allow other drivers to see the parked car in advance and make necessary adjustments to their driving accordingly. Parking too close to a curve or a hill can obstruct the view of oncoming traffic and increase the risk of accidents.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    You're on a four lane highway with lanes separated by double yellow lines.  A school bus stops on the other side of the highway and lets off children.  What do you do?

    • A.

      Stop and wait for the red lights to stop flashing

    • B.

      Continue and watch for children that might have crossed

    • C.

      Stop and wait until the red lights stop flashing, the road is clear, and the bus has moved

    • D.

      Keep driving without making adjustments

    Correct Answer
    C. Stop and wait until the red lights stop flashing, the road is clear, and the bus has moved
    Explanation
    When a school bus stops on the other side of the highway and lets off children, it is important to stop and wait until the red lights on the bus stop flashing. This indicates that the children have safely crossed the road. Additionally, it is necessary to ensure that the road is clear and the bus has moved before proceeding. This is to ensure the safety of the children and to comply with traffic laws regarding school buses.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    Can you get a ticket for driving slowly?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    A. Yes
    Explanation
    Yes, you can get a ticket for driving slowly because it can be considered as obstructing the flow of traffic. Driving significantly below the speed limit can impede the normal movement of vehicles and cause congestion or accidents. Therefore, law enforcement officers may issue a ticket for driving too slowly in order to ensure the safety and efficiency of the road.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    You intend to turn into a driveway just after an intersection. When should you signal?

    • A.

      Before the intersection

    • B.

      In the intersection

    • C.

      At the driveway

    • D.

      Never

    Correct Answer
    B. In the intersection
    Explanation
    When intending to turn into a driveway just after an intersection, it is important to signal in the intersection. Signaling in the intersection alerts other drivers and pedestrians about your intention to turn, allowing them to anticipate your movement and adjust their own accordingly. This helps to ensure a smooth and safe transition into the driveway without causing confusion or potential accidents.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    Flashing red light?

    • A.

      Stop like regular red light

    • B.

      Stop sign

    • C.

      Yield

    Correct Answer
    B. Stop sign
    Explanation
    A flashing red light typically indicates a stop sign. When encountering a flashing red light, drivers are required to come to a complete stop, just like they would at a regular red light. Therefore, the correct answer is stop sign.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    Signal how far in advance?

    • A.

      50 feet

    • B.

      100

    • C.

      300

    • D.

      500

    Correct Answer
    B. 100
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 100. This suggests that the signal should be given 100 feet in advance. This is likely referring to signaling while driving, indicating that a signal should be given 100 feet before making a turn or changing lanes. Giving a signal in advance allows other drivers to be aware of the intended action and adjust their driving accordingly, promoting safety on the road.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    When making a right turn, you should have a ____ gap in traffic

    • A.

      2-5 second

    • B.

      7-8

    • C.

      10-15

    • D.

      15-30

    Correct Answer
    B. 7-8
    Explanation
    When making a right turn, it is important to have a sufficient gap in traffic to ensure a safe maneuver. A gap of 7-8 seconds allows enough time for the driver to assess the traffic flow, check for any oncoming vehicles or pedestrians, and make the turn without causing any disruption or hazard to other road users. This duration provides a reasonable buffer to ensure a smooth and controlled right turn.

    Rate this question:

  • 20. 

    Per se law deals with what

    • A.

      Drinking and driving

    • B.

      Reckless driving

    • C.

      Leaving an accident scene

    Correct Answer
    A. Drinking and driving
    Explanation
    Per se law deals with drinking and driving. This law establishes that a person is considered to be driving under the influence if their blood alcohol concentration (BAC) exceeds the legal limit, regardless of whether they show signs of impairment. In other words, it is not necessary to prove that the individual's ability to drive was actually impaired, as the BAC alone is sufficient evidence of guilt. This law aims to deter people from driving after consuming alcohol and to ensure the safety of the roads.

    Rate this question:

  • 21. 

    How far ahead should you look when you are on the open highway

    • A.

      One mile

    • B.

      Half a mile

    • C.

      Quarter mile

    Correct Answer
    C. Quarter mile
    Explanation
    When you are on the open highway, it is recommended to look at least a quarter mile ahead. This allows you to have enough time to react and make any necessary adjustments to your driving. By looking this far ahead, you can anticipate any potential hazards, such as other vehicles, pedestrians, or obstacles on the road. It also gives you a better understanding of the traffic flow and helps you maintain a safe distance from the vehicles in front of you. Looking a quarter mile ahead promotes better situational awareness and helps prevent accidents.

    Rate this question:

  • 22. 

    Why shouldn't you rely on another driver's signal light to turn?

    • A.

      The lights may have been left on from an earlier turn

    • B.

      The vehicle may be turning another way

    • C.

      The lights may not be working properly

    Correct Answer
    A. The lights may have been left on from an earlier turn
    Explanation
    Relying on another driver's signal light to turn can be unreliable because the lights may have been left on from an earlier turn. This means that the driver may not actually be intending to turn in the direction indicated by their signal light. It is important to always assess the situation and make decisions based on the actual actions and movements of other drivers, rather than solely relying on their signal lights.

    Rate this question:

  • 23. 

    You come to a sharp crest of a hill. What should you do?

    • A.

      Turn your lights on

    • B.

      Turn your stereo off

    • C.

      Slow down

    Correct Answer
    C. Slow down
    Explanation
    When approaching a sharp crest of a hill, it is important to slow down. This is because the visibility may be limited on the other side of the hill, and there could be potential hazards such as oncoming vehicles, pedestrians, or obstacles. Slowing down allows the driver to have better control of the vehicle and react appropriately to any unexpected situations that may arise. Turning on the lights or turning off the stereo are not directly related to the specific situation of approaching a sharp crest of a hill.

    Rate this question:

  • 24. 

    Who always has the right of way?

    • A.

      Pedestrians

    • B.

      Batmobile

    • C.

      Two-wheelers

    • D.

      Both option A and B

    Correct Answer
    D. Both option A and B
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "All of the above" because in most traffic situations, pedestrians always have the right of way. Additionally, emergency vehicles like the Batmobile are given priority and have the right of way when their sirens are on. 

    Rate this question:

  • 25. 

    Speed limit signs represent

    • A.

      Represent the maximum speed for ideal driving conditions.

    • B.

      Something Nate pays attention to

    • C.

      Represent the maximum speed for all driving conditions

    • D.

      May be disregarded if the traffic flow is faster.

    • E.

      Represent the suggested speed for the road or highway

    Correct Answer
    A. Represent the maximum speed for ideal driving conditions.
    Explanation
    Speed limit signs represent the maximum speed for ideal driving conditions. This means that under perfect circumstances, such as clear weather and good road conditions, drivers should not exceed the speed indicated on the sign. However, it is important to note that drivers should always adjust their speed according to the actual driving conditions, even if it is below the posted speed limit.

    Rate this question:

      Put some relaxing music on the stereo as you drive

    • B.

      Cool off before you drive

    • C.

      Concentrate and be cautious as you drive.

    Correct Answer
    B. Cool off before you drive
    Explanation
    It is important to cool off before driving if you are angry or upset because these emotions can impair your judgment and reaction time, increasing the risk of accidents. Taking some time to calm down and regain control of your emotions will help you drive more safely and responsibly.

    When you approach a traffic signal displaying a steady yellow light, you must

    • A.

      Go through the intersection before it turns red

    • B.

      Stop if it is safe to do so

    • C.

      Be prepared to stop

    • D.

      Slow down and proceed with caution

    Correct Answer
    B. Stop if it is safe to do so
    Explanation
    When approaching a traffic signal displaying a steady yellow light, the correct action is to stop if it is safe to do so. A yellow light indicates that the signal is about to turn red, and drivers should prepare to stop. However, if it is not safe to stop abruptly, such as when it may cause a rear-end collision, drivers should proceed with caution and safely clear the intersection. The key is to prioritize safety and make the decision based on the specific circumstances at hand.

    Rate this question:

  • 30. 

    If you are being tailgated, the best thing to do is:

    • A.

      Move to the right lane and let vehicle pass, if possible

    • B.

      Speed up

    • C.

      Maintain speed

    • D.

      Brake

    Correct Answer
    A. Move to the right lane and let vehicle pass, if possible
    Explanation
    When being tailgated, the best course of action is to move to the right lane and let the vehicle pass, if possible. This is the safest option as it allows the tailgating vehicle to overtake and reduces the risk of a rear-end collision. Speeding up or maintaining speed may escalate the situation and increase the chances of an accident. Braking suddenly can be dangerous and may cause the tailgating vehicle to collide with the car from behind. Therefore, moving to the right lane and allowing the vehicle to pass is the most appropriate response.

    Rate this question:

  • 31. 

    You are approaching a school bus which has stopped on the other side of a divided highway. You should

    • A.

      Stop and wait for it to load or unload children

    • B.

      Stop, check for children, then proceed

    • C.

      Stop and wait until the flashing red lights go off

    • D.

      Watch for children and be ready to stop.

    Correct Answer
    D. Watch for children and be ready to stop.
    Explanation
    When approaching a school bus that has stopped on the other side of a divided highway, you should watch for children and be ready to stop. This is because children may be crossing the road to get on or off the bus, and it is important to be cautious and prepared to stop in order to ensure their safety. The other options of stopping and waiting for the bus to load or unload children, checking for children and then proceeding, or waiting until the flashing red lights go off are not the correct answers because they do not emphasize the need to actively watch for children and be prepared to stop.
