    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Broken lines_______.

    • A.

      May be crossed in a passing maneuver

    • B.

      Should not be crossed in a passing maneuver

    • C.

      Divide oncoming traffic

    • D.

      Divide same-direction traffic

    Correct Answer
    A. May be crossed in a passing maneuver
    Explanation
    Broken lines on the road indicate that passing is allowed in that area. This means that drivers can cross the broken lines to overtake another vehicle if it is safe to do so. Therefore, the correct answer is "may be crossed in a passing maneuver".

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Solid lines_______.

    • A.

      May be crossed in a passing maneuver

    • B.

      Should not be crossed in a passing maneuver

    • C.

      Divide oncoming traffic

    • D.

      Divide same-direction traffic

    Correct Answer
    B. Should not be crossed in a passing maneuver
    Explanation
    Solid lines should not be crossed in a passing maneuver. This is because solid lines indicate a no-passing zone, where it is unsafe and illegal to overtake another vehicle. Crossing a solid line in a passing maneuver can increase the risk of a collision with oncoming traffic or result in a violation of traffic laws.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    If the line on the left of you is yellow, _______.

    • A.

      The traffic is moving in the same direction

    • B.

      The traffic is moving on the left

    • C.

      The traffic is moving in the opposite direction

    • D.

      When the traffic is moving on the right.

    Correct Answer
    C. The traffic is moving in the opposite direction
    Explanation
    If the line on the left of you is yellow, it indicates that the traffic on that side is moving in the opposite direction. This is because yellow lines are typically used to separate traffic moving in opposite directions. Therefore, if there is a yellow line on the left side of the driver, it suggests that the traffic in the adjacent lane is moving towards the driver's vehicle.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Two-lane roads may have______ marked with a solid yellow line.

    • A.

      "no passing zones"

    • B.

      "no-zones"

    • C.

      Broken lines

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. "no passing zones"
    Explanation
    Two-lane roads may have "no passing zones" marked with a solid yellow line. This means that drivers are not allowed to pass other vehicles in these areas. The solid yellow line indicates that it is unsafe to pass due to limited visibility or other factors. Therefore, drivers must wait until it is safe to pass and the solid yellow line changes to a broken line.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    When required to stop because of a sign or signal,______.

    • A.

      You must stop before your vehicle reaches the stop line or, if there is one, the crosswalk

    • B.

      Stop on the crosswalk

    • C.

      Stop 300 feet before the intersection.

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. You must stop before your vehicle reaches the stop line or, if there is one, the crosswalk
    Explanation
    When required to stop because of a sign or signal, you must stop before your vehicle reaches the stop line or, if there is one, the crosswalk. This is the correct answer because it follows the standard rules of traffic safety. Stopping before the stop line or crosswalk ensures that you are not obstructing the flow of traffic or endangering pedestrians. Stopping 300 feet before the intersection or stopping on the crosswalk are both incorrect and unsafe actions.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Be alert for______ when crossing intersections that have undefined crosswalks.

    • A.

      Oncoming vehicles

    • B.

      Pedestrians

    • C.

      Trains

    • D.

      Wild animals

    Correct Answer
    B. Pedestrians
    Explanation
    When crossing intersections that have undefined crosswalks, it is important to be alert for pedestrians. This means being cautious and looking out for people who may be crossing the road. Since the crosswalk is undefined, there may not be clear markings or signals indicating where pedestrians should cross, so it is essential to watch for them to ensure their safety and avoid accidents.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    _______ have both a turn arrow and straight arrow.

    • A.

      Shared center lanes

    • B.

      Reversible express lanes

    • C.

      Two-way left turn lanes

    • D.

      Dual use lanes

    Correct Answer
    D. Dual use lanes
    Explanation
    Dual use lanes refer to lanes that can be used for both turning and going straight. These lanes typically have separate arrows for turning and going straight, allowing drivers to choose the appropriate direction based on their intended maneuver. This design helps to improve traffic flow and reduce congestion by providing dedicated lanes for turning without obstructing the through traffic. Therefore, dual use lanes are the correct answer as they have both a turn arrow and straight arrow.

    Rate this question:

      You can go through the intersection

    • D.

      You can go in the direction the arrow is pointing

    Correct Answer
    A. You can use this lane
    Explanation
    A green arrow indicates that you can use the lane it is pointing to. It allows you to proceed in the direction the arrow is pointing, indicating that it is safe to use that specific lane to navigate through the intersection.

    Rate this question:

  • 13.

      You can't go through the intersection

    • D.

      You must wait for the arrow to turn green

    Correct Answer
    B. You cannot use this lane
    Explanation
    A red "X" means that you cannot use this lane. This symbol indicates that the lane is closed or not available for use, and drivers should not enter or continue driving in that lane. It is important to obey this sign to ensure safety and avoid potential accidents or disruptions in traffic flow.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    When there are no signs or markings to control the use of lanes, there are special rules that indicate which lane is to be used. These rules cover_______.

    • A.

      General driving

    • B.

      Passing

    • C.

      Turning

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    When there are no signs or markings to control the use of lanes, special rules are in place to indicate which lane should be used. These rules cover general driving, passing, and turning. Therefore, the correct answer is "all of the above."

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    If you miss your turn or exit,_______.

    • A.

      Stop

    • B.

      Go on where you can safely turn around

    • C.

      Back up

    • D.

      Roll down your window and ask for help from another driver

    Correct Answer
    B. Go on where you can safely turn around
    Explanation
    If you miss your turn or exit, the best course of action is to continue driving until you find a safe place to turn around. This could be at the next intersection or exit where it is safe to make a U-turn or find an alternate route to your destination. Stopping or backing up on a busy road can be dangerous and is not recommended. Asking for help from another driver may not always be reliable or necessary in this situation.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    On ______ roads, the left-most lane is intended to be used to pass slower vehicles.

    • A.

      One-way

    • B.

      Two-way

    • C.

      Multi-lane

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Multi-lane
    Explanation
    The left-most lane on multi-lane roads is intended to be used to pass slower vehicles. This is because the left lane is typically the fastest lane and is meant for overtaking. On multi-lane roads, there are multiple lanes going in the same direction, allowing for more flexibility in passing slower vehicles.

    • A.

      A solid red light

    • B.

      A flashing yellow light

    • C.

      A stop sign

    • D.

      A solid yellow light

    Correct Answer
    C. A stop sign
    Explanation
    A flashing red light is equivalent to a stop sign. Both indicate that drivers must come to a complete stop before proceeding.

    Rate this question:

  • 18.

    • A.

      The same thing as a solid red light

    • B.

      The same thing as a solid yellow light

    • C.

      Slow down and proceed with caution

    • D.

      The same thing as a solid green light

    Correct Answer
    C. Slow down and proceed with caution
    Explanation
    A flashing yellow light indicates that drivers should slow down and proceed with caution. It is not the same as a solid red, yellow, or green light, as those have different meanings. Instead, a flashing yellow light is used to warn drivers to be cautious and prepared to stop if necessary. It is commonly used at intersections, pedestrian crossings, or areas with potential hazards.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    When entering a intersection when the light turns green you must,_______.

    • A.

      Stop and proceed when safe

    • B.

      Yield the right-of-way to traffic and pedestrians who are still in the intersection

    • C.

      Yield to right-of-way traffic only

    • D.

      Yield to pedestrians only

    Correct Answer
    B. Yield the right-of-way to traffic and pedestrians who are still in the intersection
    Explanation
    When entering an intersection when the light turns green, you must yield the right-of-way to traffic and pedestrians who are still in the intersection. This means that even though the light is green, you should not proceed immediately. Instead, you should wait for any vehicles or pedestrians who are still crossing the intersection to clear before proceeding. This ensures the safety of all road users and prevents any potential accidents or collisions.

      50 m.p.h.

    • D.

      55 m.p.h.

    Correct Answer
    D. 55 m.p.h.
    Explanation
    The maximum speed limit for lettered roads is 55 m.p.h. This means that drivers are not allowed to exceed this speed limit when driving on lettered roads. It is important to adhere to speed limits in order to ensure the safety of all road users and to avoid any potential accidents or violations.

    Rate this question:

  • 23.

    • A.

      5 to 10 feet

    • B.

      10 to 15 feet

    • C.

      15 to 50 feet

    • D.

      15 to 20 feet

    Correct Answer
    C. 15 to 50 feet
    Explanation
    When approaching a railroad track, it is important to stop within a certain distance to ensure safety. The correct answer is 15 to 50 feet. This range allows for enough space to stop safely and avoid any potential accidents. Stopping too close to the track can be dangerous because it may not provide enough time to react to an approaching train. On the other hand, stopping too far away may cause unnecessary delays and inconvenience for other drivers. Therefore, stopping within 15 to 50 feet is the recommended distance to ensure safety and efficiency.

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Their location on interstates for navigation and emergency situations.
    Explanation
    Emergency reference markers are mile markers placed along the outside shoulder of the roadway. These markers serve to mark the edge of the roadway and provide information to drivers about their location on interstates for navigation and emergency situations. They are used to help drivers identify their exact location in case of an emergency or when needing assistance. Therefore, the correct answer is that emergency reference markers convey information about the driver's location on interstates for navigation and emergency situations.

      Upon any highway outside of a city with four or more lanes of traffic.

    • E.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    E. All of the above
    Explanation
    The driver of a motor vehicle may overtake and pass to the right of another vehicle in all of the mentioned situations. When the vehicle is about to make a left turn, it creates an opportunity for the driver to pass from the right side. Upon a city street with sufficient width for two or more lines, there is enough space for the driver to safely pass from the right side. Upon a one-way street, where traffic is moving in the same direction, passing from the right side is allowed. Lastly, on any highway outside of a city with four or more lanes of traffic, passing from the right side is permitted.

    Rate this question:

  • 27.

    • C.

      When approaching within one hundred feet of or at any intersection or railroad grade crossing

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "all of the above". This means that under all of the mentioned conditions (when there is a solid yellow line, to pass slower vehicles on a highway, and when approaching within one hundred feet of or at any intersection or railroad grade crossing), no vehicle shall be driven to the left side of the roadway.

    Rate this question:

  • 28. 

    When an emergency vehicle is approaching in any direction you must_______.

    • A.

      Pull over to the right edge of the road or as near to the right as possible

    • B.

      Continue driving the way you are

    • C.

      Pull over to the left edge of the road or as near to the left as possible

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Pull over to the right edge of the road or as near to the right as possible
    Explanation
    When an emergency vehicle is approaching in any direction, it is important to pull over to the right edge of the road or as near to the right as possible. This allows the emergency vehicle to pass safely and quickly. Pulling over to the left edge of the road or continuing to drive the way you are can obstruct the path of the emergency vehicle and potentially cause delays or accidents. Therefore, pulling over to the right is the correct and safest action to take in such situations.

    Which of the following situations are you not required to stop for a school bus_______.

    • A.

      On a 2-lane road where the vehicles travel in either direction

    • B.

      On a 2-lane road that is a one-way street

    • C.

      When the school bus is stopped in a loading zone where students are not permitted to cross the roadway.

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. When the school bus is stopped in a loading zone where students are not permitted to cross the roadway.
    Explanation
    When the school bus is stopped in a loading zone where students are not permitted to cross the roadway, you are not required to stop for the school bus. This is because the loading zone indicates that students are not crossing the roadway, so there is no need to stop. However, in all other situations mentioned (on a 2-lane road where vehicles travel in either direction and on a 2-lane road that is a one-way street), you are required to stop for a school bus.

    Rate this question:

  • 31. 

    You must remained stopped until_______.

    • A.

      Another person in another vehicle honks at you

    • B.

      The bus moves or the bus driver signals you to proceed

    • C.

      Another vehicle tells you it's okay to pass the vehicle

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. The bus moves or the bus driver signals you to proceed
    Explanation
    When approaching a stopped school bus with its red lights flashing and stop sign extended, you must remain stopped until the bus moves or the bus driver signals you to proceed. This is to ensure the safety of the children boarding or exiting the bus. The other options mentioned, such as another person honking at you or another vehicle giving you permission to pass, are not valid reasons to proceed as they do not guarantee the safety of the children. Therefore, the correct answer is the bus moves or the bus driver signals you to proceed.

    Rate this question:

  • 32. 

    You should signal at least________ before you turn so other drivers can be ready.

    • A.

      100 feet

    • B.

      50 feet

    • C.

      75 feet

    • D.

      150 feet

    Correct Answer
    A. 100 feet
    Explanation
    When driving, it is important to signal your intention to turn in advance to give other drivers enough time to react and adjust their driving accordingly. The correct answer of 100 feet suggests that you should signal at least this distance before you turn. This allows drivers behind you to slow down or change lanes if needed, reducing the risk of accidents and promoting safe driving practices.

    Rate this question:

  • 33. 

    U-turns should not be made_______.

      On any curb or near the crest of the hill

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. On any curb or near the crest of the hill
    Explanation
    U-turns should not be made on any curb or near the crest of the hill because these locations can obstruct the view of oncoming traffic, increasing the risk of accidents. Making a U-turn on a curb or near the crest of a hill can also make it difficult for other drivers to anticipate your movements, potentially causing confusion and further hazards on the road. Therefore, it is important to avoid making U-turns in these specific locations for the safety of all road users.

    A. Avoid swinging wide to the left before turning.
    Explanation
    When making right turns, it is important to avoid swinging wide to the left before turning. This means that the driver should not veer too far to the left side of the road before initiating the turn. Doing so can be dangerous as it may lead to collisions with vehicles approaching from the opposite direction or pedestrians crossing the street. By staying closer to the right side of the road while making a right turn, the driver can ensure a safer and smoother maneuver.

    Enter the Two-way Left-turn lanes ________.

    • A.

      When preparing to slow down or stop before making a left turn form the main roadway

    • B.

      When traveling

    • C.

    • D.

      When making a right turn

    Correct Answer
    A. When preparing to slow down or stop before making a left turn form the main roadway
    Explanation
    Two-way Left-turn lanes are used when preparing to slow down or stop before making a left turn from the main roadway. These lanes provide a designated space for vehicles to wait while preparing to turn left, separate from the flow of traffic in the main lanes. This helps to improve safety by reducing the chances of rear-end collisions and allowing other vehicles to continue moving in the through lanes without interruption.

    When approaching a roundabout, ________

    • A.

      Stop and proceed when safe

    • B.

      Keep accelerating

    • C.

      Yield to traffic in the circle and pedestrians in the crosswalks.

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Yield to traffic in the circle and pedestrians in the crosswalks.
    Explanation
    When approaching a roundabout, it is important to yield to traffic already in the circle and also yield to pedestrians in the crosswalks. This means that you should wait for a safe gap in traffic before entering the roundabout and give priority to any pedestrians who are crossing the road. Stopping and proceeding only when safe is a good practice, but it is not specific to roundabouts. Keeping accelerating is not the correct approach as it can lead to accidents and disrupt the flow of traffic in the roundabout. Therefore, the correct answer is to yield to traffic in the circle and pedestrians in the crosswalks.

    When parking down hill with or without a curb, _________.

    • A.

      Keep wheels pointed straight ahead

    • B.

      Turn wheels to the right

    • C.

      Turn wheels to the left

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Turn wheels to the right
    Explanation
    When parking downhill, it is important to turn the wheels to the right. This is done to prevent the vehicle from rolling into traffic in case the brakes fail. By turning the wheels to the right, the vehicle will roll into the curb or the side of the road, acting as a barrier and preventing it from moving further downhill. This is a safety precaution that should be followed when parking on a downward slope.

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Turn wheels to the left
    Explanation
    When parking uphill with a curb, it is important to turn the wheels to the left. This is because if the car were to roll backwards, it would roll into the curb and the wheels being turned to the left would help prevent the car from rolling further downhill. This is a safety precaution to ensure that the car remains stationary and does not pose a risk to other vehicles or pedestrians.

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Turn wheels to the right
    Explanation
    When parking uphill without a curb, it is recommended to turn the wheels to the right. This is because if the vehicle were to roll downhill, it would roll away from the roadway instead of into traffic. Turning the wheels to the right creates a "backstop" against the curb or road edge, preventing the vehicle from rolling into the road.

     when parallel parking, stop even with the vehicle ahead of the parking space about ________ to the left of that vehicle.

    • A.

      1 1/2 feet

    • B.

      2 1/2 feet

    • C.

      1 foot

    • D.

      2 feet

    Correct Answer
    A. 1 1/2 feet
    Explanation
    When parallel parking, it is important to stop even with the vehicle ahead of the parking space about 1 1/2 feet to the left of that vehicle. This distance allows enough space for the driver to maneuver the vehicle into the parking space without hitting the vehicle in front or leaving too much space between the two vehicles. It ensures that the parked vehicle is properly aligned and does not obstruct traffic or other parked vehicles.

    Check the left lane for traffic by _______.

    • A.

      Using your rear-view mirror inside your vehicle

    • B.

      Using your right side-view mirror

    • C.

      Using your left and inside rear-view mirrors and by looking over your left shoulder

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Using your left and inside rear-view mirrors and by looking over your left shoulder
    Explanation
    To check the left lane for traffic, it is important to use multiple sources of information. The left and inside rear-view mirrors provide a view of the lane behind and to the left of the vehicle. However, these mirrors have blind spots that may not show all the traffic. Therefore, it is necessary to also look over the left shoulder to ensure there are no vehicles in the blind spot. By combining the use of mirrors and physically looking over the shoulder, the driver can effectively check the left lane for traffic.

    B. Increase your speed to match the speed of other vehicles
    Explanation
    The correct answer is to increase your speed to match the speed of other vehicles. When using a ramp and acceleration lane, the purpose is to merge safely into traffic. To do so, it is important to increase your speed to match the flow of traffic on the main road. This allows for a smoother merge and reduces the risk of causing a disruption or collision with other vehicles.

    To avoid highway hypnosis, it is important to constantly move your eyes and pay attention to the traffic and highway signs around you. This helps to keep your mind engaged and prevents your attention from drifting. By actively observing your surroundings, you can stay alert and focused on the road, reducing the risk of falling into a trance-like state. The other options of drinking coffee or listening to the sounds around you may provide temporary stimulation but are not effective in preventing highway hypnosis.
