    How do you observe?

    • A.

      Look out of the rear window, the side windows and then forward

    • B.

      Check all 3 mirrors

    • C.

      Check your interior mirror, right door mirror and then your blind spot

    • D.

      Check interior mirror, right door mirror, blind spot and then rear window

    Correct Answer
    C. Check your interior mirror, right door mirror and then your blind spot
    Explanation
    The correct answer is to check your interior mirror, right door mirror, and then your blind spot. This is the correct sequence for observing while driving. By checking the interior mirror first, you can get a general view of what is happening behind your vehicle. Then, by checking the right door mirror, you can specifically see what is happening on the right side of your vehicle. Finally, by checking your blind spot, which is the area not visible in your mirrors, you can ensure that there are no vehicles or obstacles in that area before making any maneuvers.

  • 4. 

    When would you use a signal?

    • A.

      If there are cars behind you

    • B.

      You never need a signal

    • C.

      When you see someone who would benefit from a signal, but not putting it on if the cars behind are too close as they may slow down

    • D.

      Only if there are cars coming towards you

    Correct Answer
    C. When you see someone who would benefit from a signal, but not putting it on if the cars behind are too close as they may slow down
    Explanation
    The correct answer is when you see someone who would benefit from a signal, but not putting it on if the cars behind are too close as they may slow down. This answer suggests that using a signal is appropriate when there is someone who would benefit from it, such as pedestrians or other drivers, but it is not necessary to use it if there are cars behind that are too close, as it may cause them to slow down abruptly. This emphasizes the importance of considering the safety and impact on other drivers when deciding to use a signal.

    When moving away on a hill, what should you do differently?

    • A.

      More gas, less bite

    • B.

      More bite, less gas

    • C.

      Less bit and less gas

    • D.

      More gas and more bite

    Correct Answer
    D. More gas and more bite
    Explanation
    When moving away on a hill, you should apply more gas and more bite. This means that you should increase the pressure on the accelerator pedal (more gas) and engage the clutch more firmly (more bite) to prevent the vehicle from rolling backward. By doing so, you will provide enough power to the wheels and maintain control while moving uphill.

    The correct answer is "If there is someone to benefit." This means that if there is someone who would benefit from you pulling over, such as a police officer signaling you to stop or if there is an emergency situation, then you would need a signal to pull over. However, if there is no one to benefit from you pulling over, then you would not need a signal to do so.

    Correct Answer
    B. Handbrake, neutral cancel the signal if you used one
    Explanation
    After stopping, the next step should be to engage the handbrake to ensure the car remains stationary. Then, the car should be put into neutral to disengage the engine from the wheels. Finally, if a signal was used while stopping, it should be canceled to indicate that the intention to move has changed.
