Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Out of State violations count against my driving record in Massachusetts.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Out of state violations count against a person's driving record in Massachusetts. This means that if someone receives a traffic violation in another state, it will still be recorded and affect their driving record in Massachusetts. It is important for drivers to be aware of this, as it can impact their insurance rates and potentially lead to license suspension or other consequences.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Driving is a privilege not a right in Massachusetts.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In Massachusetts, driving is considered a privilege rather than a right. This means that individuals do not have an inherent right to drive, but instead must meet certain requirements and follow specific rules in order to obtain and maintain a driver's license. This distinction emphasizes that driving is a privilege granted by the state, and can be revoked or suspended if individuals fail to adhere to the laws and regulations governing the roadways.

    Correct Answer
    A. 183 clean record
    Explanation
    To be eligible to take the road test, if I am under 18, I must have had a permit for at least 183 days and have a clean record during that time. This means that I must have held a learner's permit for a minimum of 183 days without any traffic violations or accidents. This requirement ensures that young drivers have enough experience and demonstrate responsible behavior on the road before taking the road test for their driver's license.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    In the middle of the night (12-5am) I can only drive if a licensed parent is sitting next to me.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because during the specified time period (12-5am), the person can only drive if they have a licensed parent sitting next to them. This implies that there are certain restrictions or regulations in place that require a licensed parent's presence for driving during this time.

    • B.

      State Courts Allowance for Regular Re-offenders

    • C.

      Student Councils Against Rewarding Ruthlessness

    • D.

      State Courts Against Road Rage

    • E.

      Students Coordinating Against Reckless Routines

    Correct Answer
    D. State Courts Against Road Rage
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "State Courts Against Road Rage." This answer makes the most sense in the context of the question, as it suggests that SCARR courses are required by state courts as a penalty for individuals who engage in road rage. The other options do not relate to the topic of road rage or the penal system, making them less likely to be the correct answer.

      Until age 18

    • D.

      Until age 21

    Correct Answer
    C. Until age 18
    Explanation
    After receiving the license, the individual remains a Junior Operator until they reach the age of 18. This means that for a period of six months, they will have the restrictions and limitations that come with being a Junior Operator, such as curfew and passenger restrictions. Once they turn 18, these restrictions will no longer apply.

    Rate this question:

  • 9.

    • C.

      Until age 18

    • D.

      Until age 21

    Correct Answer
    C. Until age 18
    Explanation
    As a Junior Operator, the individual is not allowed to drive during the curfew hours without a licensed parent sitting next to them. This restriction applies until they reach a certain age. The correct answer is "until age 18" because the curfew lasts until the individual turns 18 years old. After reaching this age, they will no longer be subject to the curfew restrictions.

    Rate this question:

  • 10.

      Until age 18

    • D.

      Until age 21

    Correct Answer
    A. For six months
    Explanation
    The passenger restriction only applies for a period of six months. After this time, there are no limitations on having passengers under the age of 18 in the car, except for immediate family members.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    An exception to the passenger restriction says that I can have anyone at all in the car as long as...

    • A.

      ...they are classmates

    • B.

      ...I treat my license like a permit again, having a 21+ licensed adult sitting next to me.

    • C.

      ...the passengers do not distract me from driving safely

    • D.

      ....it is before the curfew hours of 12:30-5:00am

    Correct Answer
    B. ...I treat my license like a permit again, having a 21+ licensed adult sitting next to me.
    Explanation
    The exception to the passenger restriction allows the person to have anyone in the car as long as they treat their license like a permit again and have a 21+ licensed adult sitting next to them. This means that the person can have any passenger in the car, regardless of their relationship or age, as long as they have a responsible adult accompanying them. This exception ensures that there is someone experienced and capable of assisting the driver if needed, promoting safety on the road.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Breaking curfew by twenty minutes is...

    • A.

      Enforced by primary enforcement

    • B.

      Enforced by secondary enforcement

    Correct Answer
    B. Enforced by secondary enforcement
    Explanation
    Breaking curfew by twenty minutes is enforced by secondary enforcement means that there may be penalties or consequences for breaking curfew, but they are not actively enforced unless there is another primary reason for law enforcement to get involved. This suggests that breaking curfew by a small amount of time may not be a high priority for law enforcement, and they may choose to focus on more serious offenses instead.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Violating the passenger restriction is....

    • A.

      Enforced by primary enforcement

    • B.

      Enforced by secondary enforcement

    Correct Answer
    A. Enforced by primary enforcement
    Explanation
    Violating the passenger restriction is enforced by primary enforcement, which means that law enforcement officers have the authority to stop and ticket drivers solely for this violation. Primary enforcement allows officers to take immediate action without needing another violation to occur. This ensures that passenger restrictions are strictly enforced and helps maintain safety on the roads. Secondary enforcement, on the other hand, means that officers can only enforce the passenger restriction if the driver has committed another violation.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    As a Junior Operator, driving at 2:30 am without a parent, you could be stopped because of...

    • A.

      Primary enforcement

    • B.

      Secondary enforcement

    Correct Answer
    A. Primary enforcement
    Explanation
    As a Junior Operator, driving at 2:30 am without a parent, you could be stopped because of primary enforcement. Primary enforcement allows law enforcement officers to stop and cite a driver solely for a specific violation, such as driving without a parent during restricted hours. In this case, the fact that you are a Junior Operator and driving without a parent is enough for the officer to pull you over and issue a citation. Secondary enforcement, on the other hand, requires another violation to be observed before the officer can stop and cite the driver.

It indicates that the driver should yield the right of way to any other vehicles or pedestrians before proceeding. This is an important traffic rule that ensures safety at intersections or areas where the flow of traffic needs to be controlled.

    Rate this question:

  • 19.

    • E.

      Located in the South

    Correct Answer
    C. A connector to Interstate 84
    Explanation
    Interstate 684 must be a connector to Interstate 84 because it is mentioned in the options and there is no information provided to suggest that it is a major interstate that goes East-West or North-South. Additionally, the fact that it is specifically mentioned as a connector to Interstate 84 implies that it is not a major interstate itself but rather a road that connects to another interstate.

      Be prepared to stop.

    • D.

      Stop if it is safe to do so.

    • E.

      Go only if it is safe to do so.

    Correct Answer
    E. Go only if it is safe to do so.
    Explanation
    A green light indicates that it is permissible to proceed, but only if it is safe to do so. It is important for drivers to exercise caution and assess the traffic conditions before proceeding through the intersection. Simply having a green light does not guarantee safety, as there may be other vehicles or pedestrians still crossing the intersection. Therefore, the correct interpretation of a green light is to go only if it is safe to do so.

    Rate this question:

  • 22. 

    A yellow light means...

    • A.

      Go fast!

    • D.

      Go if you can beat the light.

    • E.

      A green light will follow, so be prepared for the change.

    Correct Answer
    C. Stop if it is safe to do so.
    Explanation
    A yellow light indicates that the traffic signal is about to change to red. It serves as a warning for drivers to slow down and prepare to stop. The correct answer suggests that drivers should stop if it is safe to do so, meaning they should assess the situation and determine if they have enough time to stop before the light turns red. This promotes safe driving practices and helps prevent accidents at intersections.

    B. Getting hit by traffic
    C. Not putting the tire on in a secure and balanced manner
    D. Trying to do the tire change on a hill
    E. Driving too fast or too far on the "donut"
    Explanation
    When changing a tire, there are several dangers to be aware of. The car falling off the jack is a potential danger if the jack is not properly secured or if the car is not on a level surface. Getting hit by traffic is another danger, especially if the tire change is being done on the side of the road without proper caution. Not putting the tire on in a secure and balanced manner can lead to the tire coming loose while driving, causing a potential accident. Trying to do the tire change on a hill can make it difficult to properly secure the car and increase the risk of it rolling. Lastly, driving too fast or too far on the "donut" tire, which is a temporary spare, can be dangerous as it is not designed for long distances or high speeds.

    Rate this question:

  • 25. 

    You should not use cruise control in the rain or in bad weather because it gives you less control over the vehicle.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Using cruise control in the rain or bad weather can be dangerous because it reduces the driver's control over the vehicle. In such conditions, the road surface can become slippery, visibility may be reduced, and unexpected obstacles can appear. By relying on cruise control, the driver may not be able to react quickly enough to adjust the speed or apply the brakes when necessary. Therefore, it is advisable to avoid using cruise control in these conditions to maintain better control over the vehicle.

    The proper tyre pressure for the tyres on your car can be found...

    • A.

      Printed on the tire itself

    • B.

      Printed on the air pressure gauge

    • C.

      Printed on a sticker inside the driver's door

    • D.

      Printed on the receipt from where ypu bought the tires

    Correct Answer
    C. Printed on a sticker inside the driver's door
    Explanation
    The proper tyre pressure for the tyres on your car can be found printed on a sticker inside the driver's door. This is because car manufacturers typically provide information about the recommended tyre pressure for each specific vehicle model on a sticker placed inside the driver's door frame or on the door jamb. This ensures that the driver has easy access to the correct tyre pressure information while entering or exiting the vehicle. It is important to follow these recommended tyre pressure guidelines as they are specific to the vehicle and can optimize safety, fuel efficiency, and tire performance.

      Not reach Lincoln's head

    • D.

      Reach Lincoln's neck

    Correct Answer
    B. Cover at least part of Lincoln's head
    Explanation
    When you stick a penny into the treads of your tyres with Lincoln's head going in first, it should cover at least part of Lincoln's head. This is because the depth of the treads should be sufficient to partially or fully hide Lincoln's head on the penny. If the treads are too shallow and do not cover any part of Lincoln's head, it indicates that the tyre tread is worn out and needs to be replaced.

    A car with ABS has an antilock _____________ system.

    Correct Answer
    brake
    braking
    brakes
    break
    breaks
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "brake". ABS stands for Anti-lock Braking System, which is a safety feature in cars that prevents the wheels from locking up during braking, allowing the driver to maintain steering control. Therefore, a car with ABS has an antilock brake system. The other options, "braking", "brakes", "break", and "breaks" are related to the concept of braking but do not specifically refer to the system itself.

    Oil should be changed every 5,000 miles or so (for most people, that adds up to about once every 3-4 months) because oil is necessary for keeping the engine ________, cool, and lubricated.

    Correct Answer
    clean
    Explanation
    Oil should be changed every 5,000 miles or so because it is necessary for keeping the engine clean, cool, and lubricated. Over time, oil can become contaminated with dirt, debris, and other particles, which can negatively impact the engine's performance. Regularly changing the oil helps to remove these contaminants and maintain a clean engine. Additionally, oil also helps to cool the engine by absorbing heat and lubricates the moving parts to reduce friction and wear.

    In an emergency, antilock brakes are very helpful because while you are stomping on the brakes, you can also ___________.

    Correct Answer
    steer
    turn
    Explanation
    In an emergency, antilock brakes are very helpful because while you are stomping on the brakes, you can also steer and turn. This means that you can maintain control of the vehicle while braking, allowing you to navigate around obstacles or avoid collisions. Steering and turning are essential actions to take in emergency situations to ensure the safety of yourself and others on the road.

    If you have conventional brakes (not ABS), the danger is that in an emergency you might be tempted to slam on the brakes. But that won't usually help if you have convenional brakes because stomping on the brake will just cause you to ____________ and you will not be able to steer. So, with conventional brakes, you should "pump the brakes" in an emergency. But with antilock brakes, you just stomp and steer and let the ABS computer do the pumping for you.

    Correct Answer
    skid
    Explanation
    When you slam on the brakes with conventional brakes, it can cause the wheels to lock up and lose traction with the road. This loss of traction leads to a skid, where the vehicle continues to move forward but the wheels are sliding instead of rolling. In this situation, the driver loses control of steering and the ability to maneuver the vehicle. Therefore, the correct answer is "skid" because slamming on the brakes with conventional brakes can cause the vehicle to skid.

    Air bag safety can be summed up as ABC: Always slide your _________ back, __________ everyone, and make sure ________________ ride in the back.

    Correct Answer
    seat buckle children
    seat Buckle children
    chair buckle children
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "seat buckle children, seat Buckle children, chair buckle children". This answer is correct because it follows the ABC rule for air bag safety. The first blank should be filled with "seat" to indicate that one should always slide their seat back to create a safe distance from the air bag. The second blank should be filled with "Buckle" to emphasize the importance of wearing seat belts for everyone in the car. Lastly, the third blank should be filled with "children" to highlight the need for children to ride in the back seat, as it is the safest position in case of a collision.

    The first emergency action to take if battery acid gets in your eyes is...

    • A.

      Call 911

    • B.

      Call a poison control center

    • C.

      Rinse out the eye(s), preferably with running water for a long time

    • D.

      Read the owner's manual for instructions on what to do

    Correct Answer
    C. Rinse out the eye(s), preferably with running water for a long time
    Explanation
    If battery acid gets in your eyes, the first emergency action to take is to rinse out the eye(s), preferably with running water for a long time. This is because rinsing the eyes helps to dilute and remove the acid, reducing the risk of further damage to the eyes. It is crucial to rinse the eyes for a long time to ensure thorough flushing of the acid. Calling 911 or a poison control center may be necessary after rinsing, but the immediate priority is to rinse the eyes to minimize the potential harm caused by the battery acid. Reading the owner's manual is not the appropriate action in this emergency situation.
