    When must you signal before making a turn?

    • A.

      At least 100 ft

    • B.

      75 ft

    • C.

      25 ft

    • D.

      10 ft

    Correct Answer
    A. At least 100 ft
    Explanation
    When making a turn, it is important to signal in advance to inform other drivers of your intentions.

    Explanation
    You may park 50 ft away from a stop sign. This distance allows for clear visibility and ensures that the stop sign is not obstructed by parked vehicles, allowing drivers to see and react to the sign in a timely manner. Parking too close to a stop sign can create hazards by blocking the view of other drivers and potentially causing accidents.

    B. 25 ft
    Explanation
    You may park up to 25 ft next to a corner. This is because parking too close to a corner can obstruct the view of other drivers and pedestrians, increasing the risk of accidents. By allowing a minimum distance of 25 ft, it ensures better visibility and safety for everyone on the road.

      150 ft

    Correct Answer
    A. 243 ft
    Explanation
    The stopping distance on a dry road at 50 m.p.h is 243 ft. This means that it would take a vehicle traveling at 50 m.p.h on a dry road approximately 243 ft to come to a complete stop. Stopping distance is influenced by factors such as speed, road conditions, and the vehicle's braking capabilities. In this case, the given answer suggests that on a dry road, a vehicle traveling at 50 m.p.h would require a stopping distance of 243 ft.

    • D.

      10 inches

    Correct Answer
    A. 6 inches or less
    Explanation
    The proper distance you may park from the curb is 6 inches or less. This means that when parking your vehicle, you should make sure to leave no more than a 6-inch gap between your vehicle and the curb. This is important to ensure that your vehicle is not obstructing the flow of traffic and allows for the safe passage of other vehicles on the road. Parking too far from the curb can create hazards and may result in a violation or fine.

    What are the penalties for driving without insurance?

    • A.

      Suspension of liscense

    • B.

      Fine of 300 dollars

    • C.

      Suspension of license and registration and fines

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Suspension of license and registration and fines
    Explanation
    Driving without insurance is illegal in many jurisdictions. The penalties for this offense typically include the suspension of the driver's license and vehicle registration, as well as fines. These penalties aim to deter individuals from driving without insurance, as it poses a risk to both the uninsured driver and other road users. By suspending the license and registration, authorities ensure that the driver cannot continue to operate a vehicle until they obtain proper insurance coverage. Additionally, fines serve as a financial consequence for breaking the law and encourage compliance with insurance requirements. Therefore, the correct answer is suspension of license and registration and fines.

    Explanation
    Serious accidents causing death, injury, or $200 damage must be reported within 5 days to a division of motor vehicle office. This indicates that the correct authority to report such accidents is the motor vehicle office, as they need to be aware of the incidents and take appropriate actions. Reporting to the police, the mayor, or the hospital may not be sufficient or relevant in this context.

    • C.

      Not paying child support

    • D.

      Moving violations

    Correct Answer
    D. Moving violations
    Explanation
    Points are issued for various infractions committed by individuals. In this case, the correct answer is "moving violations." Moving violations refer to traffic offenses such as speeding, running a red light, or reckless driving. When individuals commit these violations, they receive points on their driving record, which can lead to consequences such as increased insurance rates or the suspension of their driver's license.

    Rate this question:

    • C.

      3-6 months

    • D.

      1 month

    Correct Answer
    A. After receiving 12 points
    Explanation
    In this scenario, the correct answer is "after receiving 12 points." In many jurisdictions, a driver's license can be suspended or revoked when they accumulate a certain number of points due to traffic violations. Each violation carries a specific number of points, and once a driver reaches the threshold (in this case, 12 points), they will be given a proposed license suspension notice. This notice serves as a warning that their license may be suspended if they continue to accumulate points.

    What should you do if approaching a steady yellow or amber signal?

    • A.

      Stop

    • B.

      Speed up

    • C.

      Slow down and stop before nearing the intersection only if possible

    • D.

      Run away

    C. Slow down and stop before nearing the intersection only if possible
    Explanation
    When approaching a steady yellow or amber signal, the appropriate action is to slow down and stop before nearing the intersection only if it is possible to do so safely. This means that if it is not safe to stop suddenly, such as when you are too close to the intersection or there is traffic behind you, you should continue through the intersection with caution. However, if it is possible to stop safely, it is recommended to do so to avoid the risk of a collision.

      Speed only when there are no police about

    • B.

      Keep from looking at any one thing for more than a few seconds

    • D.

      Talking on phone

    Correct Answer
    B. Keep from looking at any one thing for more than a few seconds
    Explanation
    A good practice while driving is to keep from looking at any one thing for more than a few seconds. This is because prolonged distraction from the road can increase the risk of accidents. By keeping our attention focused and scanning the surroundings, we can be more aware of potential hazards and react in a timely manner. It is important to avoid distractions such as looking at our phones, eating, or engaging in activities that take our eyes off the road. Additionally, speeding only when there are no police around is not a good practice as it disregards traffic laws and can endanger oneself and others on the road.

    What is the proper lane to turn into when making a left turn?

    • A.

      The lane nearest the center in the direction you are heading

    • B.

      The lane closest to the curb in the direction you are heading

    • C.

      Any lane that allows you to turn so long as it is in the direction you are heading

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. The lane nearest the center in the direction you are heading
    Explanation
    When making a left turn, it is important to turn into the lane nearest the center in the direction you are heading. This is because it allows for a smoother and safer turn, as it provides enough space to complete the turn and merge into the flow of traffic in the intended direction. Turning into the lane closest to the curb may cause the vehicle to cross multiple lanes of traffic, increasing the risk of accidents. Choosing any lane that allows the turn may lead to confusion and potential conflicts with other vehicles.

      The lane closest to the curb

    • C.

      The lane furthest away from the curb

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. The lane nearest the center of the road
    Explanation
    When making a left turn from a two-way street, it is recommended to position your car in the lane nearest the center of the road. This allows for a safer and more efficient turn, as it provides better visibility and minimizes the chances of colliding with oncoming traffic. Placing the car in the lane closest to the curb or the lane furthest away from the curb would not be ideal for making a left turn.

      Speed up

    • D.

      Run away

    Correct Answer
    A. Slow down and be prepared to stop
    Explanation
    Slowing down and being prepared to stop when nearing an intersection is a good practice because it allows the driver to have better control of the vehicle and be ready to respond to any potential hazards or changes in traffic conditions. It also gives the driver more time to assess the situation, check for any oncoming vehicles, and make a safe decision on whether to proceed or stop at the intersection. This practice helps to prevent accidents and ensures the safety of both the driver and other road users.

These issues can affect the balance and alignment of the tires, resulting in vibrations and thumping sounds while driving. It is important to check the tires regularly and address any issues to ensure safe and smooth driving.

    • C.

      Stay to the center lane

    Correct Answer
    A. Check intersections ahead for signals
    Explanation
    A good practice when driving into the city is to check intersections ahead for signals. This is important because traffic signals regulate the flow of vehicles at intersections, and being aware of them in advance allows drivers to anticipate and adjust their speed accordingly. By checking intersections for signals, drivers can ensure they are prepared to stop or proceed safely, reducing the risk of accidents and promoting smoother traffic flow in the city.

    What lights should you be using when driving in the fog?

    • A.

      Fog lights

    • B.

      Headlights

    • C.

      Low beams

      Fog lights and low beams 

    Correct Answer
    D. Fog lights and low beams 
    Explanation
    When driving in foggy conditions, it is important to use fog lights and low beams. Fog lights are specifically designed to cut through the fog and provide better visibility. They are positioned lower on the vehicle, closer to the ground, which helps to illuminate the road without reflecting off the fog. Low beams, on the other hand, provide a wider and shorter range of light, reducing glare and improving visibility in foggy conditions. Therefore, using both fog lights and low beams is the best combination to ensure safe driving in fog.

    A. They increase your chance of surviving and accident
    Explanation
    Using seat belts and shoulder belts increases your chances of surviving an accident. Seat belts are designed to restrain your body during a collision, preventing you from being thrown out of the vehicle or hitting the interior components. Shoulder belts, on the other hand, provide additional protection by securing your upper body and reducing the risk of severe injuries. By wearing both seat belts and shoulder belts, you are effectively minimizing the impact forces on your body, which significantly improves your chances of survival in the event of an accident.

    Which way should you turn if you are going into a skid?

    • A.

      In the direction the back of your car is skidding

    • B.

      The direction the front of your car is skidding

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. In the direction the back of your car is skidding
    Explanation
    When a car is skidding, it means that the back of the car is sliding out of control. To regain control and stabilize the car, it is necessary to turn the steering wheel in the direction that the back of the car is skidding. This helps to align the front wheels with the direction of the skid, allowing the tires to regain traction and the car to straighten out. Therefore, the correct answer is to turn in the direction the back of your car is skidding.

    A. At least 2 seconds
    Explanation
    To ensure a safe distance between vehicles, it is recommended to stay at least 2 seconds behind the car you are following. This allows enough time to react to any sudden changes in the traffic ahead, such as braking or swerving. By maintaining this distance, it reduces the risk of rear-end collisions and provides a buffer zone for unexpected situations. It is a general guideline that helps drivers maintain a safe and appropriate distance on the road.

    What should you do if you go into a skid?

    • A.

      Take your foot off the gas

    • B.

      Hit the brakes

    • C.

      Pull the parking handle

    • D.

      Drive fast

    Correct Answer
    A. Take your foot off the gas
    Explanation
    When a vehicle goes into a skid, it means that the tires have lost traction with the road surface. In this situation, hitting the brakes or continuing to accelerate by driving fast can worsen the skid and make it harder to regain control of the vehicle. By taking your foot off the gas, you allow the tires to regain traction and help the vehicle stabilize. This reduces the risk of further skidding and increases the chances of safely maneuvering the vehicle back onto the intended path.

For example, honking the horn can alert other drivers of potential dangers or to get their attention, while flashing your lights can signal to other drivers that you are giving them the right of way or to proceed with caution. These actions can help promote safer driving and better communication between drivers on the road.
