Explanation
You should drive at least 2-4 seconds behind the car in front of you. This is known as the "two-second rule" and allows for a safe following distance.

### How far before making a turn must you put on your turn signal?

25 ft.

• B.

50 ft.

• C.

100 ft.

• D.

200 ft.

• E.

500 ft.

C. 100 ft.
Explanation
When making a turn, it is important to signal your intention to other drivers in advance. Putting on your turn signal 100 ft before making the turn allows other drivers enough time to react and adjust their driving accordingly. This distance gives drivers behind you enough time to slow down or change lanes if needed. Signaling too late may cause confusion and increase the risk of accidents, while signaling too early may not provide enough notice to other drivers. Therefore, the correct answer is 100 ft.

### When is it OK to pass another vehicle?

• A.

While driving through a curve.

• B.

When there is a solid yellow line in your lane.

• C.

When there is a dashed yellow line is in your lane.

• D.

When driving on a hill.

C. When there is a dashed yellow line is in your lane.
Explanation
It is okay to pass another vehicle when there is a dashed yellow line in your lane because this indicates that it is safe to pass as long as it is done so with caution. A dashed yellow line signifies that passing is permitted in the direction of the line, provided it is safe to do so. Passing in other situations such as while driving through a curve, when there is a solid yellow line in your lane, or when driving on a hill can be dangerous and is not recommended.
