    Correct Answer
    B. Move your vehicle out of the traffic lane, if possible
    Explanation
    In the event of a minor accident with no injuries and minimal damage, it is advisable to move your vehicle out of the traffic lane, if possible. This is important to prevent any additional accidents or congestion on the road. Leaving your vehicle in the traffic lane until law enforcement arrives can create a hazardous situation for other drivers. However, if moving the vehicle is not possible due to safety concerns or if instructed to do so by law enforcement, it is best to follow their guidance.

      About a half of a mile

    Correct Answer
    B. About a quarter of a mile
    Explanation
    When driving on the open highway, it is important to look ahead to anticipate any potential hazards or obstacles. Looking about a quarter of a mile ahead allows you to have enough time to react and adjust your driving accordingly. This distance gives you a good balance between being aware of what is happening ahead while still being able to focus on the immediate road conditions. It is crucial to maintain a safe following distance and be prepared for any sudden changes in traffic or road conditions.

    Explanation
    When parking next to a curb, it is important to use your turn signals when pulling next to or away from the curb. This is necessary to indicate your intentions to other drivers on the road and ensure their safety. By using your turn signals, you communicate your actions and allow others to anticipate your movements, reducing the risk of accidents or collisions.

    Correct Answer
    A. Make room for the merging traffic, if possible
    Explanation
    When traffic is merging into your lane on the freeway, it is important to make room for the merging traffic if possible. This means that you should adjust your speed or position to create space for the merging vehicles to enter the lane safely. Asserting your right-of-way by driving faster or always slowing down and maintaining your position can be dangerous and may lead to accidents or collisions. Therefore, the best course of action is to be considerate and accommodating to the merging traffic.

    Correct Answer
    C. Signal for 100 feet before turning
    Explanation
    When making a right turn at an upcoming intersection, it is important to signal for 100 feet before turning. Signaling allows other drivers and pedestrians to anticipate your actions and adjust their own accordingly. This helps to ensure a smooth and safe maneuver. Moving toward the left side of your lane or avoiding the bicycle lane are not necessary or recommended actions when making a right turn.

    School crossing guards are responsible for ensuring the safety of children crossing the road near schools.

    When the red lights are flashing on a stopped school bus, it indicates that children are either getting on or off the bus. It is important to stop for a stopped school bus with its red lights flashing to ensure the safety of the children. Failing to do so can result in accidents and put the lives of children at risk. Therefore, it is crucial to obey this traffic rule and stop for a school bus when its red lights are flashing.

    Alcohol affects judgement because it impairs cognitive function and decision-making abilities.

This can lead to poor judgement, impaired reasoning, and risky behavior.

    The speed limit in any alley is:

    • A.

      20 mph

    • B.

      15 mph

    • C.

      25 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 and other vehicles. Additionally, the lower speed limit helps to reduce the risk of accidents and allows drivers to have more time to react to any unexpected obstacles or hazards that may arise in the alley.

    Which of the following roadways freezes first when wet?

    • A.

      Bridges

    • B.

      Intersections

    • C.

      Tunnels

    Correct Answer
    A. Bridges
    Explanation
    Bridges freeze first when wet because they are exposed to the cold air from both above and below, causing them to cool down more quickly than other roadways. The cold air circulating around and underneath the bridge causes the moisture on the surface to freeze faster, making it more slippery and dangerous for drivers. Intersections and tunnels are not as exposed to the cold air, so they do not freeze as quickly as bridges.

    • C.

      Change lanes, look carefully, and pass the stopped vehicle

    Correct Answer
    B. Stop, then proceed when all pedestrians have crossed
    Explanation
    When the driver ahead of you stops at a crosswalk, it is important to prioritize the safety of pedestrians. Therefore, the correct action to take is to stop and wait until all pedestrians have crossed the crosswalk before proceeding. This ensures that you do not endanger the pedestrians and comply with traffic regulations.

      Only if you are involved in an accident

    • B.

      If you are involved in an accident or stopped for a citation

    • C.

      Only if you are stopped and cited

    Correct Answer
    B. If you are involved in an accident or stopped for a citation
    Explanation
    If you are involved in an accident or stopped for a citation, you must show proof of insurance to law enforcement. This is because in both situations, law enforcement needs to verify that you have valid insurance coverage. In the case of an accident, they need to ensure that you are financially responsible for any damages caused. If you are stopped for a citation, they need to confirm that you are in compliance with the law by having insurance coverage.

    Explanation
    When you sell your vehicle, you are required to notify the DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles) within a certain timeframe. In this case, the correct answer is 5 days, meaning that you must inform the DMV of the sale within 5 days of the transaction taking place. This allows the DMV to update their records and transfer the ownership of the vehicle to the new owner.

    • C.

      To the side

    Correct Answer
    B. Ahead
    Explanation
    The "three second rule" applies to the space ahead of your vehicle. This rule suggests that you should maintain a distance of at least three seconds between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you. This allows you enough time to react and stop safely in case of any sudden changes or emergencies on the road. By following this rule, you can help prevent rear-end collisions and ensure a safer driving experience.

    Use your high beam headlights at night:

      As little as possible

    • B.

      Only on unlighted streets

    • C.

      Whenever it is legal and safe

    Correct Answer
    C. Whenever it is legal and safe
    Explanation
    Using high beam headlights at night should be done whenever it is legal and safe. High beam headlights provide better visibility and help the driver to see farther down the road. However, it is important to use them only when it is safe to do so, as they can blind or distract other drivers. Using high beams should be avoided in well-lit areas or when there is oncoming traffic or vehicles ahead, as it can create a hazard. Therefore, the correct answer is to use high beam headlights whenever it is legal and safe.
