    • D.

      None of the above

    The correct answer is "It identifies you as a Junior Operator." When a person is under the age of 18, their driver's license will have a "Restriction I" on it, indicating that they are a junior operator. This restriction is in place to signify that they have certain limitations and requirements as a young and inexperienced driver.

If it is during curfew hours, the adult must be a parent or legal guardian.

    Rate this question:

  • 20.

    • C.

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. A criminal offense because you are driving while unlicensed
    Explanation
    Driving during a curfew without a parent or legal guardian is considered a criminal offense because you are driving while unlicensed. This means that you are operating a vehicle without the necessary legal permission to do so, which is against the law. It is important to have a valid driver's license in order to ensure that you have met the necessary requirements and are qualified to drive on public roads. Therefore, driving without a license during a curfew is considered a criminal offense.

    Rate this question:

  • 22. 

    Between 1 and 4am, the curfew for Junior Operators is enforced with...

    • A.

      Primary enforcement: you can be stopped just for driving

      Secondary enforcement: you will only be stopped if you are doing something else wrong too, such as speeding.

    • C.

      Tertiary enforcement: you will only be in trouble if you crash.

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Primary enforcement: you can be stopped just for driving
    Explanation
    The correct answer is primary enforcement: you can be stopped just for driving. This means that during the specified curfew hours, Junior Operators can be pulled over by law enforcement solely for the reason of driving during that time period. They do not need to be engaged in any other illegal activity, such as speeding or crashing, in order to be stopped.

    Rate this question:

    • C.

      Tertiary enforcement: you will only be in trouble if you crash

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Secondary enforcement: you will only be stopped if you are doing something else wrong too, such as speeding.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is secondary enforcement: you will only be stopped if you are doing something else wrong too, such as speeding. This means that during the specified time period, the Junior Operator curfew is not strictly enforced unless the driver is also found to be engaged in another violation, such as speeding. In other words, simply driving during this time is not sufficient cause for being stopped, but additional infractions can result in enforcement action.

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. The public schools in that community cancel because of weather
    Explanation
    When the public schools in a community cancel because of weather, it is likely that road tests are automatically cancelled for the day as well. This is because the cancellation of public schools indicates that the weather conditions are severe enough to make it unsafe for students to travel and attend school. Similarly, it would be unsafe for individuals to take road tests in such weather conditions. Therefore, when the public schools cancel due to weather, it is a precautionary measure to ensure the safety of everyone involved, including those taking road tests.
