Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Taillights must be red and of such intensity that they may be seen from a distance of how many feet behind the car?

    • A.

      200

    • B.

      300

    • C.

      400

    • D.

      500

    Correct Answer
    D. 500
    Explanation
    Taillights must be red and of such intensity that they may be seen from a distance of 500 feet behind the car. This is important for the safety of both the driver and other road users. The bright red color and high intensity of the taillights ensure that they are easily visible, even in low light or adverse weather conditions. This allows vehicles following behind to maintain a safe distance and react in a timely manner to any sudden stops or changes in speed.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    What would you do in the event your vehicle goes into a skid?

    • A.

      Steer into the skid

    • B.

      Hit your brakes hard

    • C.

      Turn wheels away from the skid

    • D.

      Speed up

    Correct Answer
    A. Steer into the skid
    Explanation
    When a vehicle goes into a skid, the tires lose traction with the road surface, causing the vehicle to slide. Steering into the skid means turning the wheels in the same direction as the skid. This technique helps to regain control over the vehicle by allowing the tires to regain traction. By turning the wheels away from the skid, the skid can worsen and the vehicle may spin out of control. Hitting the brakes hard can also worsen the skid and make it harder to regain control. Speeding up is not a suitable response as it can increase the likelihood of losing control of the vehicle.

    The motorist must always stop for all of the options listed except for a railroad crossing. When approaching a stop sign, the motorist is required to come to a complete stop and yield the right-of-way to other vehicles or pedestrians. When encountering pedestrians in a marked crossing, the motorist must stop and allow them to cross safely. Similarly, when an emergency vehicle with its lights and sirens on is approaching, the motorist must stop and yield the right-of-way. However, at a railroad crossing, the motorist must not stop on the tracks but should slow down and proceed with caution if there are no trains approaching.

    The stopping distance equals:

    • A.

      Braking distance plus three second rule

    • B.

      Safety time plus three second rule

    • C.

      Reaction distance plus braking distance

    • D.

      150 feet

    Correct Answer
    C. Reaction distance plus braking distance
    Explanation
    The stopping distance is the total distance traveled by a vehicle from the moment the driver perceives a hazard to the moment the vehicle comes to a complete stop. It consists of two components: the reaction distance and the braking distance. The reaction distance is the distance traveled by the vehicle while the driver reacts to the hazard and applies the brakes. The braking distance is the distance traveled by the vehicle while the brakes are applied and the vehicle decelerates to a stop. Therefore, the correct answer is "Reaction distance plus braking distance."

    When parking uphill with a curb, the correct answer is to turn the wheels in to the curb (to the right). This is because if the car were to roll downhill, the front wheels would roll into the curb, which would act as a barrier and prevent the car from rolling further. Turning the wheels away from the curb (to the left) would not provide any protection against the car rolling downhill. Pointing the wheels straight ahead would also not be recommended as the car could potentially roll downhill without any obstruction.

    The official document that shows ownership of a vehicle is called:

    • A.

      Registration certificate

    • B.

      Odometer

    • C.

      Title

    • D.

      License

    Correct Answer
    C. Title
    Explanation
    The official document that shows ownership of a vehicle is called a title. This document is issued by the government and contains information about the vehicle, such as the owner's name, address, and any liens or loans on the vehicle. The title is important because it proves legal ownership and allows the owner to transfer or sell the vehicle. The registration certificate, on the other hand, is a separate document that shows that the vehicle has been registered with the appropriate authorities and has met all the necessary requirements to be legally driven on the road. The odometer is a device that measures the distance traveled by a vehicle, while a license refers to a permit or authorization to drive a vehicle.

    When parking on a hill, either uphill or downhill, without a curb, in which direction should the driver turn their wheels?

    • A.

      To the right

    • B.

      To the left

    • C.

      Straight ahead

    • D.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    A. To the right
    Explanation
    When parking on a hill without a curb, the driver should turn their wheels to the right. This is because if the vehicle were to roll downhill, the right-turning wheels would catch against the curb (if there was one) or the edge of the road, preventing the vehicle from rolling further. Turning the wheels to the right also ensures that the vehicle will roll away from traffic if the brakes were to fail.

    You must keep what in your car and show to a police officer if asked?

    • A.

      Title to your car

    • B.

      Proof of Liability Insurance

    • C.

      Spare Tire and Jack

    • D.

      Emergency First Aid Kit

    Correct Answer
    B. Proof of Liability Insurance
    Explanation
    When asked by a police officer, you must keep proof of liability insurance in your car. This is because liability insurance provides coverage for any damages or injuries you may cause to others while driving. It is a legal requirement in many countries to have liability insurance while driving, and failing to provide proof of insurance when asked by a police officer can result in penalties or fines. Therefore, it is important to always carry proof of liability insurance in your car to comply with the law and show it to a police officer if requested.

    A driver will need a red flag if an object overhangs by 5 feet. This is because according to traffic regulations, if an object extends beyond the rear of a vehicle by 5 feet or more, it is required to have a red flag attached to it. The red flag serves as a warning to other drivers on the road, alerting them to the presence of the overhanging object and helping to prevent accidents.

    Explanation
    All children under the age of 4 years riding in a motor vehicle must be in a child safety seat. This is because children at this age are still developing and are more vulnerable to injuries in the event of a car accident. A child safety seat provides the necessary protection and restraint to minimize the risk of injury. It is important to follow this guideline to ensure the safety and well-being of young children while traveling in a motor vehicle.

    A car may start to hydro at any speed over:

    • A.

      10 MPH

    • B.

      35 MPH

    • C.

      55 MPH

    • D.

      65 MPH

    Correct Answer
    B. 35 MPH
    Explanation
    Hydroplaning occurs when a layer of water builds up between the tires of a vehicle and the road surface, leading to a loss of traction. The speed at which hydroplaning can occur depends on various factors such as tire tread depth, tire pressure, and road conditions. However, generally, hydroplaning can start to happen at speeds as low as 35 mph, especially if the tires are worn or the road surface is wet. Therefore, 35 mph is the correct answer as it represents the minimum speed at which hydroplaning can begin to occur.

      Block a fire hydrant

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    All of the given options are considered no-parking zones. A driveway entrance is a no-parking zone because it obstructs the access to a property. A bridge is a no-parking zone because it is a designated area for vehicles to pass through, and parking on it can cause traffic congestion and accidents. Blocking a fire hydrant is a no-parking zone because it hinders the access to the hydrant during emergencies, putting people and property at risk. Therefore, all of the options mentioned in the question are valid examples of no-parking zones.

    • B.

      .02%

    • C.

      .05%

    • D.

      .04%

    Correct Answer
    B. .02%
    Explanation
    In most countries, including the United States, the legal drinking age is 21. Therefore, anyone under the age of 21 is considered a minor. It is illegal for minors to consume alcohol, and the legal blood alcohol concentration (BAC) limit for minors is typically lower than that for adults. In this case, the correct answer is .02%, indicating that if a minor has a BAC level higher than .02%, their license will be suspended.
