    • A.

      1.6 cm

    • B.

      2.5 mm

    • C.

      1.6 mm

    • D.

      Option 4

    Correct Answer
    C. 1.6 mm
    Explanation
    The minimum thread depth for tires is 1.6 mm. This measurement is important for maintaining traction and grip on the road surface, especially in wet or slippery conditions. A deeper thread depth allows the tire to channel water away from the contact patch, reducing the risk of hydroplaning. It also helps to maintain stability and control while driving, especially during cornering and braking maneuvers. Therefore, it is essential to regularly check and replace tires that have worn down below the minimum thread depth to ensure safe driving conditions.

    A. Yes-a valid insurance certificate must be in the vehicle at all times
    Explanation
    Having a valid insurance certificate is a requirement for a licensed vehicle to retain its license. This is because the insurance certificate serves as proof that the vehicle is insured and financially protected in case of any accidents or damages. Without a valid insurance certificate, the vehicle is not considered legally insured, and therefore, it cannot retain its license. It is important to have the insurance certificate in the vehicle at all times to comply with the legal requirements.
