    • A.

      An ambulance officer

    • B.

      A doctor

    • C.

      A member of the public

    • D.

      A police officer

    Correct Answer
    D. A police officer
    Explanation
    In many jurisdictions, police officers have the authority to request a breath screening test to determine if a person is driving under the influence of alcohol. This is because driving under the influence poses a significant risk to public safety. Breath screening tests are a quick and non-invasive way to measure a person's blood alcohol concentration. By allowing police officers to conduct these tests, it helps enforce laws against drunk driving and protect the welfare of the general public.

    You are driving in a 100km/h speed area and you see an "Accident" sign. What speed must you slow down to?

    • A.

      50 km/h

    • B.

    Explanation
    When you see an "Accident" sign while driving in a 100km/h speed area, you must slow down to 20 km/h. This is because the sign indicates a potentially hazardous situation ahead, and reducing your speed significantly will give you more time to react and avoid any potential dangers. Slowing down to 20 km/h ensures that you can navigate through the accident area safely and with caution.

    When turning right at a roundabout, you must:

    • A.

      Indicate right when leaving the roundabout

    • B.

      Indicate right before entering the roundabout

    • C.

This is necessary to signal your intention to other drivers and indicate that you will be exiting the roundabout at the next available exit. Indicating right when leaving the roundabout is not necessary as it may confuse other drivers. Indicating left before entering the roundabout is incorrect as it would indicate that you are turning left instead of right. Not indicating at any time on the roundabout is also incorrect as it does not provide clear communication to other drivers.

    • D.

      Stop and if no train is coming, you may drive over the lines

    Correct Answer
    C. Stop until the lights stop flashing
    Explanation
    When red lights are flashing at a railway level crossing, it is important to stop until the lights stop flashing. This is because the flashing lights indicate that a train is approaching or already crossing the intersection, and it is necessary to wait until it is safe to proceed. Failing to stop can lead to a collision with the train, endangering both the driver and the passengers. Therefore, it is crucial to follow the instructions given by the flashing lights and wait until they stop before driving over the railway lines.

    If you intend to move your vehicle from the right-hand lane to the left-hand lane, you must:

    • A.

      Move to the left as quickly as possible

    • B.

      Speed up and signal as you move to the left

    • C.

    If you are driving in fog, your vehicle should have its: 

    • A.

      Park lights on

    • B.

      Headlights on dip

    • C.

      Headlights on high beam

    • D.

      Hazard lights on

    Correct Answer
    B. Headlights on dip
    Explanation
    When driving in fog, it is important to have your headlights on dip. This is because the low beam setting helps to illuminate the road directly in front of your vehicle without creating a glare that can reflect off the fog and impair visibility even further. It also allows other drivers to see your vehicle without being blinded by the headlights. Using high beams or hazard lights can actually worsen visibility in foggy conditions.

    The best way to check for hazards before reversing your vehicle is by walking around the vehicle before reversing. This allows you to visually inspect the area surrounding your vehicle and identify any potential obstacles or hazards that may be in your blind spots and not visible through the mirrors. By physically walking around the vehicle, you can ensure a comprehensive and accurate assessment of the surroundings, reducing the risk of accidents or collisions while reversing.

    To help you from being blinded by the headlights of an oncoming vehicle, you should:

    • A.

      Look to the left-hand side of the road

    • B.

      Look to the right-hand side of the road

    • C.
