Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    If it feels like your tires have lost traction with the road during rain:

    • A.

      Ease your foot off of the gas pedal.

    • B.

      Try to keep the steering wheel straight.

    • C.

      Do not try to stop or turn until the tires grip the road.

    Correct Answer
    A. Ease your foot off of the gas pedal.
    Explanation
    When your tires lose traction with the road during rain, it is important to ease your foot off of the gas pedal. This is because accelerating can cause the tires to spin even more, further reducing traction. By taking your foot off the gas pedal, you allow the tires to regain grip on the road. Additionally, it is advised to keep the steering wheel straight and avoid sudden stops or turns until the tires regain traction to prevent skidding or sliding.

    To avoid being blinded by oncoming cars at night, you should:

    • A.

      Look at the right side of the road.

    • B.

      Wear polarizing anti-glare glasses.

    • C.

      Concentrate on the center line.

    Correct Answer
    A. Look at the right side of the road.
    Explanation
    To avoid being blinded by oncoming cars at night, it is recommended to look at the right side of the road. This is because the headlights of oncoming cars are usually positioned on the left side of the vehicle, and by looking towards the right side of the road, the glare from these headlights can be minimized. This allows the driver to maintain better visibility and reduces the risk of being temporarily blinded by the bright lights.

    When you are behind a motorcycle, you should:

    • A.

      Ride the brake.

    • B.

      Allow more following distance.

    • C.

      Drive more slowly.

    Correct Answer
    B. Allow more following distance.
    Explanation
    When you are behind a motorcycle, it is important to allow more following distance. Motorcycles have a shorter stopping distance compared to cars, so maintaining a larger gap ensures that you have enough time to react and stop safely if the motorcycle suddenly brakes or encounters any obstacles. This also gives the motorcyclist more space and visibility, reducing the risk of accidents and allowing both vehicles to maneuver more easily.

    If your vehicle has a two-part safety belt system you should:

    • A.

      Use both the lap and shoulder belt.

    • B.

      Use only the shoulder belt.

    • C.

      Use only the lap belt.

    Correct Answer
    A. Use both the lap and shoulder belt.
    Explanation
    If your vehicle has a two-part safety belt system, it is important to use both the lap and shoulder belt. This is because the lap belt helps to secure the lower part of your body, while the shoulder belt helps to secure the upper part of your body. By using both belts, you are ensuring that you are properly restrained in case of a sudden stop or collision, reducing the risk of injury. Using only the shoulder belt or lap belt alone may not provide adequate protection.

    The following statements regarding the use of seatbelts are true, with the EXCEPTION of:

    • A.

      They are not necessary if your vehicle has an air bag.

    • B.

      They keep you from being thrown from the vehicle in the event of an accident.

    • C.

      They prevent a human collision by holding you in place.

    Correct Answer
    A. They are not necessary if your vehicle has an air bag.
    Explanation
    Seatbelts are necessary regardless of whether a vehicle has an airbag. While airbags provide an additional safety measure, seatbelts are still essential for preventing a human collision by holding the occupant in place and keeping them from being thrown from the vehicle in the event of an accident.

  • 6. 

    You are driving on the freeway. The vehicle in front of you is a large truck. You should drive:

    • A.

      Closely behind the truck in bad weather because the driver can see farther ahead.

    • B.

      Farther behind the truck than you would for a passenger vehicle.

    • C.

      No more than one car length behind the truck so the driver can see you.

    Correct Answer
    B. Farther behind the truck than you would for a passenger vehicle.
    Explanation
    When driving behind a large truck on the freeway, it is recommended to maintain a greater distance compared to a passenger vehicle. This is because trucks have larger blind spots, and the driver may have limited visibility of the road ahead. By keeping a safe distance, you can increase your own visibility, have more time to react to any sudden stops or obstacles, and reduce the risk of a collision.

  • 7. 

    You see a signal person at a road construction site ahead. You should obey his or her instructions:

    • A.

      Only if you see orange cones on the road ahead.

    • B.

      Unless they conflict with existing signs, signals, or laws.

    • C.

      At all times.

    Correct Answer
    C. At all times.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "At all times." When you see a signal person at a road construction site, it is important to obey their instructions regardless of whether there are orange cones on the road ahead or if there are existing signs, signals, or laws. The signal person is responsible for ensuring the safety of both drivers and construction workers, so it is crucial to follow their directions to prevent accidents and maintain a smooth flow of traffic through the construction zone.

    When can you drive in a bike lane?

    • A.

      During rush hour traffic if there are no bicyclists in the bike lane.

    • B.

      When you are within 200 feet of a cross street where you plan to turn right.

    • C.

      When you want to pass a driver ahead of you who is turning right.

    Correct Answer
    B. When you are within 200 feet of a cross street where you plan to turn right.
    Explanation
    You can drive in a bike lane when you are within 200 feet of a cross street where you plan to turn right. This is because it is necessary to enter the bike lane in order to make a right turn at the upcoming cross street. However, it is important to note that you should always yield to any bicyclists in the bike lane and make sure it is safe to enter before doing so.

  • 9. 

    All of the following practices are dangerous to do while driving. Which of these is also illegal?

    • A.

      Listening to music through headphones that cover both ears

    • B.

      Adjusting your outside mirrors.

    • C.

      Transporting an unrestrained animal inside the vehicle.

    Correct Answer
    A. Listening to music through headphones that cover both ears
    Explanation
    Listening to music through headphones that cover both ears is dangerous because it can distract the driver from the road and the surrounding environment. It prevents them from hearing important sounds such as sirens, honking, or other warning signals. This can lead to accidents and jeopardize the safety of the driver and others on the road. Additionally, in many jurisdictions, it is illegal to wear headphones while driving as it impairs the driver's ability to hear and respond to potential hazards.

    What should you always wear in the car?

    • A.

      Seat belt / child restraint

    • B.

      Sunglasses

    • C.

      Reflective clothing

    • D.

      Helmet

    Correct Answer
    A. Seat belt / child restraint
    Explanation
    It is important to always wear a seat belt or use a child restraint in the car for safety purposes. Seat belts are designed to protect occupants in the event of a collision by restraining their movement and preventing them from being thrown forward. Child restraints are specifically designed to provide additional protection for young children, ensuring that they are securely fastened and properly positioned in the vehicle. Wearing a seat belt or using a child restraint significantly reduces the risk of injury or fatality in a car accident.
