    The California Driver's Handbook recommends pulling off the road and resting as a tip to help you stay alert on long drives. This is because driving for extended periods of time can lead to fatigue, which can impair your ability to concentrate and react quickly. Taking breaks and getting some rest allows you to refresh your mind and reduce the risk of accidents caused by drowsiness.

      Sentence you to a mandatory 30 days in jail

    • C.

      Confiscate and sell your vehicle

    Correct Answer
    A. Suspend your driving privilege
    Explanation
    If you are convicted by the court of a first DUI, the court will suspend your driving privilege. This means that your driver's license will be temporarily revoked, and you will not be allowed to legally drive for a certain period of time. This is a common consequence for DUI convictions as a way to ensure public safety and discourage individuals from driving under the influence. It is important to note that the specific duration of the suspension may vary depending on the jurisdiction and the circumstances of the offense.

      Stare at the middle of the road

    • B.

      Look directly in front of your car

    • C.

      Scan from side to side

    Correct Answer
    C. Scan from side to side
    Explanation
    When driving, it is important to scan from side to side. This means constantly checking the road and surroundings by looking from left to right and vice versa. By scanning from side to side, you are able to anticipate any potential hazards, such as pedestrians, vehicles, or obstacles, that may be entering or crossing your path. This allows you to react in a timely manner and make necessary adjustments to your driving. Staring at the middle of the road or looking directly in front of your car limits your field of vision and may cause you to miss important information on the sides.

    Your wheels should be pointed straight ahead, unless you are:

    • A.

      Waiting to make a left turn at a traffic light

    • B.

      Parked on a hill or sloping driveway

    • C.

      Parked on the side of a level roadway and there is no curb

    Correct Answer
    B. Parked on a hill or sloping driveway
    Explanation
    When parked on a hill or sloping driveway, it is important to turn your wheels in a specific direction to prevent your vehicle from rolling. If you are parked facing uphill, you should turn your wheels away from the curb or towards the road. This will allow the curb to act as a barrier and prevent your vehicle from rolling downhill. If you are parked facing downhill, you should turn your wheels towards the curb or towards the road. This will also prevent your vehicle from rolling downhill. This is why the correct answer is "Parked on a hill or sloping driveway."

      The front seat in generally safest for children six years of age and older

    Correct Answer
    B. Children under age one should not ride in the front seat of air bag-equipped vehicles
    Explanation

Air bags are designed to protect adult passengers and can deploy with great force, which can cause serious injuries or even be fatal for young children. It is recommended that infants and young children ride in the back seat of the vehicle, in an appropriate child safety seat, facing the rear, to minimize the risk of injury in the event of a crash.

    Explanation
    To be sure a lane is clear before changing lanes, it is important to look over your shoulder into the lane you want to enter. This is because relying solely on outside mirrors may not provide a complete view of blind spots. By turning your head and looking over your shoulder, you can effectively check for any vehicles or obstacles that may be in your blind spot and ensure a safe lane change.

    When driving in the fog, snow or rain use both windshield wipers and:

    • A.

      Low-beam headlights

    • B.

      High-beam headlights

    • C.

      Running lights

    Correct Answer
    A. Low-beam headlights
    Explanation
    When driving in fog, snow, or rain, it is important to use low-beam headlights. Low-beam headlights provide better visibility in adverse weather conditions by illuminating the road directly in front of the vehicle without causing glare or reflection. High-beam headlights should not be used in these conditions as they can reflect off the moisture particles in the air, further reducing visibility. Running lights are not sufficient for providing adequate visibility in such weather conditions.

      Come to a complete stop, then procede when it is safe

    • B.

      Stop before entering and let all other traffic go first

    • C.

      Slow down or stop, if necessary

    A. Come to a complete stop, then procede when it is safe
    Explanation
    When a traffic signal light is not working at an intersection, the correct thing to do is to come to a complete stop and then proceed when it is safe. This is because without a working traffic signal, the right of way is not clearly defined, and it is important to ensure that it is safe to proceed in order to avoid any potential accidents or conflicts with other vehicles. By coming to a complete stop and assessing the situation, drivers can make a decision based on the flow of traffic and proceed safely.

    Explanation
    School crossing guards are responsible for ensuring the safety of pedestrians, especially children, when crossing the road near a school. Their instructions should be followed at all times, regardless of whether it is during school hours or if children are present. This is because their presence and guidance are crucial for maintaining a safe environment for everyone, and disregarding their instructions could lead to accidents or other hazards.

    If you have a green light, but traffic is blocking the intersection:

    • A.

      Stay out of the intersection until traffic clears

    • B.

      Enter the intersection until traffic clears

    • C.

      Merge into another lane and try to go around the traffic

    Correct Answer
    A. Stay out of the intersection until traffic clears
    Explanation
    When faced with a green light but a blocked intersection, the correct action is to stay out of the intersection until the traffic clears. This is because blocking the intersection can cause congestion and disrupt the flow of traffic in other directions. It is important to wait until there is enough space for your vehicle to completely clear the intersection before proceeding. Entering the intersection or trying to go around the traffic by merging into another lane is not recommended as it can lead to accidents and further congestion.

      15 mph

    • B.

      25 mph

    • C.

      20 mph

    Correct Answer
    B. 25 mph
    Explanation
    The speed limit for a school zone is 25 mph, unless otherwise posted. This means that drivers should not exceed the speed of 25 miles per hour when driving through a school zone, unless there are signs indicating a different speed limit. This lower speed limit is implemented to ensure the safety of children who may be present in the area, reducing the risk of accidents and allowing drivers more time to react to any unexpected situations.

    To turn left from a one-way street onto a one-way street, start from:

    • A.

      The lane closest to the left curb

    • B.

      The center lane

    • C.

      Any lane as long as it seems safe to do so

    Correct Answer
    A. The lane closest to the left curb
    Explanation
    When turning left from a one-way street onto another one-way street, it is safest to start from the lane closest to the left curb. This allows for a smoother and more predictable turn, as you will be positioned closer to the left side of the road. Starting from the center lane may confuse other drivers and increase the risk of collisions. While it may be possible to turn from any lane if it seems safe, choosing the lane closest to the left curb is the recommended and correct option.

    • A.

      Always stop before making a right turn

    • B.

      Signal during the last 100 feet before you turn

    • C.

      Slow down and signal as you start your turn

    Correct Answer
    B. Signal during the last 100 feet before you turn
    Explanation
    When making a right turn, it is important to signal during the last 100 feet before the turn. This is to alert other drivers and pedestrians of your intention to turn, giving them enough time to react and adjust their own driving accordingly. By signaling in advance, you are promoting safety and reducing the risk of accidents or confusion on the road.

    • A.

      Is illegal under all circumstances

    • B.

      Must be marked with a red flag or lights

    Correct Answer
    B. Must be marked with a red flag or lights
    Explanation
    Cargo extending more than four feet from your rear bumper must be marked with a red flag or lights. This is because it poses a potential hazard to other drivers on the road. The red flag or lights serve as a warning signal to alert other drivers of the extended cargo, ensuring their safety and preventing accidents. Failing to mark the cargo can lead to accidents or traffic violations, which is why it is necessary to do so.

    Correct Answer
    A. Continue waiting and yielding to traffic in the lane
    Explanation

    Which of the following blocks the smooth flow of traffic?

    • A.

      Slowing down to look at an accident scene

    • B.

      Avoiding unnecessary lane changes

    • C.

      Using public transportation instead of your car

    Correct Answer
    A. Slowing down to look at an accident scene
    Explanation
    Slowing down to look at an accident scene can block the smooth flow of traffic because it causes a disruption in the normal speed and movement of vehicles. When drivers slow down to observe an accident, it creates a bottleneck effect as other vehicles behind them also reduce their speed, leading to congestion and delays. This behavior is often referred to as "rubbernecking" and can significantly impede the flow of traffic on busy roads. It is important for drivers to maintain their speed and focus on the road ahead to ensure a smooth traffic flow.

    You may legally park your car:

    • A.

      At the corner in an intersection

    • B.

      Across a sidewalk if you are parially in the drive way

    • C.

      In a bicycle lane if there is no sign forbidding it

    Correct Answer
    C. In a bicycle lane if there is no sign forbidding it
    Explanation
    It is illegal to park at the corner in an intersection as it obstructs the view of other drivers and pedestrians, posing a safety hazard. Parking across a sidewalk, even partially in a driveway, is also not allowed as it blocks pedestrian access and can be inconvenient for the residents. However, if there is no sign specifically forbidding it, you may legally park in a bicycle lane. It is important to note that parking in a bicycle lane should be avoided whenever possible to ensure the safety of cyclists.

    The speed limit in an alley is:

    • A.

      20 mph

    • B.

      15 mph

    • C.

      10 mph

    Correct Answer
    B. 15 mph
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 15 mph because alleys are typically narrow and have limited visibility, making it necessary to drive at a slower speed to ensure the safety of pedestrians, cyclists, and other vehicles. Driving at a lower speed limit reduces the risk of accidents and allows drivers to react quickly to any unexpected obstacles or hazards that may arise in such confined spaces.

By adjusting the mirrors before starting the car, you can position them correctly according to your height and seating position. This will allow you to have a clear view of the road and the vehicles around you, enhancing your overall safety on the road.

This helps to maintain a smooth flow of traffic and prevents any potential accidents or disruptions. By allowing the merging vehicles to enter your lane, you are promoting safe driving practices and demonstrating good driving etiquette. However, it is crucial to prioritize your own safety and not make sudden or unsafe maneuvers to accommodate the merging vehicles.
