Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    You are getting ready to make a right turn. You should:

    • A.

      Always stop before making a right turn

    • B.

      Signal during the last 100 feet before you turn

    • C.

      Slow down and signal as you start your turn

    Correct Answer
    B. Signal during the last 100 feet before you turn
    Explanation
    When getting ready to make a right turn, it is important to signal during the last 100 feet before the turn. Signaling alerts other drivers and pedestrians of your intention to turn, allowing them to anticipate your actions and adjust their own accordingly. This helps to ensure a safe and smooth flow of traffic. Simply slowing down and signaling as you start your turn may not give others enough time to react, potentially leading to accidents or confusion on the road.

    The speed limit in any alley is:

    • A.

      20 mph

    • B.

      15 mph

    • C.

      10 mph

    Correct Answer
    B. 15 mph
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 15 mph because alleys are typically narrower and have more obstacles compared to regular roads. Therefore, a lower speed limit is necessary to ensure the safety of both pedestrians and vehicles. A speed limit of 15 mph allows drivers to have better control and reaction time in case of any unexpected situations.

    You should stop before crossing railroad tracks:

    • A.

      Whenever a crossing is not controlled by gates

    • B.

      Any time a train may be approaching, whether or not you see it

    • C.

      If your vehicle has three or more axles

    Correct Answer
    B. Any time a train may be approaching, whether or not you see it
    Explanation
    You should stop before crossing railroad tracks because a train may be approaching, regardless of whether or not you see it. This is a safety precaution to ensure that you do not get hit by a train and to allow the train to pass safely. It is important to be cautious and aware of the possibility of a train coming, even if there are no gates controlling the crossing or if your vehicle has three or more axles.

    When driving in fog, snow, or rain, use both your windshield wipers and:

    • A.

      Low-beams headlights

    • B.

      High-beam headlights

    • C.

      Running lights

    Correct Answer
    A. Low-beams headlights
    Explanation
    When driving in fog, snow, or rain, it is important to use both your windshield wipers and low-beam headlights. Low-beam headlights provide adequate visibility without reflecting off the precipitation particles, reducing glare and improving visibility. High-beam headlights should not be used in these conditions as they can cause the light to reflect back into your eyes, further reducing visibility. Running lights, on the other hand, are not sufficient on their own to provide proper visibility in such weather conditions.

    You should adjust your rear view and side mirrors:

    • A.

      Before you get into the car

    • B.

      Before you start driving

    • C.

      After you start driving

    Correct Answer
    B. Before you start driving
    Explanation
    Before you start driving, it is important to adjust your rear view and side mirrors. This is necessary to ensure proper visibility and eliminate blind spots while driving. By adjusting the mirrors before starting the car, you can position them correctly to provide a clear view of the road and the surrounding areas. This will help you make safe lane changes, monitor traffic, and be aware of any potential hazards while driving.

    You are driving in the far right lane of a multi-lane freeway. A line of five cars is merging into your lane ahead from an on ramp. You:

    • A.

      Must maintain your speed and position

    • B.

      Must slow down to let the other vehicles merge

    • C.

      Should make room for the merging vehicles, if possible

    Correct Answer
    C. Should make room for the merging vehicles, if possible
    Explanation
    When driving on a multi-lane freeway, it is important to be aware of merging vehicles. In this scenario, where a line of five cars is merging into your lane from an on ramp, the correct course of action is to make room for the merging vehicles, if possible. This means adjusting your speed or position to create space for them to merge safely. It is important to prioritize safety and cooperation on the road, allowing other drivers to merge smoothly helps maintain the flow of traffic and reduces the risk of accidents.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Which of the following blocks the smooth flow of traffic?

    • A.

      Slowing down to look at an accident scene

    • B.

      Avoiding unnecessary lane changes

    • C.

      Using public transportation instead of your car

    Correct Answer
    A. Slowing down to look at an accident scene
    Explanation
    Slowing down to look at an accident scene blocks the smooth flow of traffic because it causes a disruption in the normal speed and movement of vehicles. This behavior creates a bottleneck effect, as drivers who slow down to observe the accident scene cause a chain reaction of slowing down behind them. This can lead to congestion and delays for other drivers who are not directly involved in the accident. By avoiding unnecessary lane changes and using public transportation instead of a car, individuals can help maintain the flow of traffic and reduce congestion.

    A pedestrian who is blind or visually impaired uses traffic sounds before deciding to cross the street. If you see a pedestrian with a guide dog or white cane waiting to cross at a corner, you should:

    • A.

      Stop at the crosswalk and honk your horn

    • B.

      Drive into the crosswalk so the person can hear your engine

    • C.

      Pull up to the crosswalk so the person can hear your engine

    Correct Answer
    C. Pull up to the crosswalk so the person can hear your engine
    Explanation
    When a pedestrian who is blind or visually impaired is waiting to cross the street with a guide dog or white cane, it is important to pull up to the crosswalk so that the person can hear your engine. This allows them to gauge the presence and location of the vehicle, helping them make a decision on when it is safe to cross. Stopping at the crosswalk and honking your horn may startle the pedestrian and create confusion, while driving into the crosswalk can be dangerous and obstruct their path.

  • 9. 

    When you change lanes or merge with another lane, you:

    • A.

      Have the right-the-way

    • B.

      Should first stop and check for cross traffic

    • C.

      Need at least a 4-second gap in traffic

    Correct Answer
    C. Need at least a 4-second gap in traffic
    Explanation
    When changing lanes or merging with another lane, it is important to ensure that there is enough space and time to safely move into the new lane. Having at least a 4-second gap in traffic allows the driver to properly assess the situation, signal their intention, and make a smooth transition without causing any disruptions or accidents. This ensures the safety of both the driver and other vehicles on the road.

    When a traffic signal light isn't working at an intersection, you should:

    • A.

      Come to a complete stop, then proceed when it is safe

    • B.

      Stop before entering and let all other traffic go first

    • C.

      Slow down or stop, if necessary

    Correct Answer
    A. Come to a complete stop, then proceed when it is safe
    Explanation
    When a traffic signal light isn't working at an intersection, it is important to come to a complete stop and then proceed when it is safe. This is because the malfunctioning traffic signal may cause confusion and increase the risk of accidents. Coming to a complete stop allows the driver to assess the situation and ensure that there is no immediate danger before proceeding. It is important to prioritize safety and give way to other vehicles if necessary.

    If you are convicted by the court of a first DUI, the court will:

    • A.

      Suspend your driving privilege

    • B.

      Sentence you to a mandatory 30 days in jail

    • C.

      Confiscate and sell your vehicle

    Correct Answer
    A. Suspend your driving privilege
    Explanation
    If you are convicted by the court of a first DUI, the court will suspend your driving privilege. This means that your driver's license will be taken away for a certain period of time as a punishment for driving under the influence. This is a common consequence for DUI convictions as it aims to protect public safety by preventing individuals from driving while impaired. The other options mentioned in the question, such as a mandatory jail sentence and confiscation of the vehicle, may also be potential consequences depending on the severity of the offense and the laws in the jurisdiction, but the suspension of driving privilege is the most immediate and certain consequence.

  • 13. 

    Two vehicles are approaching an uncontrolled "T" intersection. One vehicle is one the through road and the other is on the road that ends. Who has the right-of-way at the intersection?

    • A.

      The vehicle on the through road

    • B.

      The vehicle on the right

    • C.

      The vehicle that arrives first

    Correct Answer
    A. The vehicle on the through road
    Explanation
    In an uncontrolled "T" intersection, the vehicle on the through road has the right-of-way. This means that the vehicle traveling on the road that continues straight through the intersection has priority over the vehicle on the road that ends. The vehicle on the through road can proceed without stopping, while the other vehicle must yield and wait for a safe opportunity to enter or cross the intersection.

      Drive to the right edge of your lane but keep moving

    • B.

      Slow down and signal the other drivers to pass you

    • C.

      Drive to the side of the road and stop in the designated area

    Correct Answer
    C. Drive to the side of the road and stop in the designated area
    Explanation
    When you see this white sign, you should drive to the side of the road and stop in the designated area. This sign indicates that there is a slow-moving vehicle or obstruction ahead, and it is important to clear the lane for faster-moving traffic behind you. By pulling over and stopping in the designated area, you allow the vehicles behind you to safely pass and prevent any potential accidents or traffic congestion.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    You are driving in the far right lane of a four-lane freeway and notice think broken white lines on the left side of your lane. You are driving in:

    • A.

      The carpool lane and must merge into the next lane

    • B.

      A special lane for slow moving vehicles

    • C.

      An exit lane

    Correct Answer
    C. An exit lane
    Explanation
    The presence of broken white lines on the left side of your lane indicates that you are driving in an exit lane. Exit lanes are typically marked with broken lines to indicate that vehicles in this lane have the option to exit the freeway. This lane is separate from the carpool lane and is not specifically designated for slow-moving vehicles. Therefore, the correct answer is an exit lane.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    To be sure a lane is clear before you change lanes, you should:

    • A.

      Look in your outside mirrors only

    • B.

      Look over your shoulder into the lane you want to enter

    • C.

      Always turn your head and look over your right shoulder

    Correct Answer
    B. Look over your shoulder into the lane you want to enter
    Explanation
    To be sure a lane is clear before changing lanes, it is important to look over your shoulder into the lane you want to enter. This is because relying solely on outside mirrors may not provide a complete view of blind spots. By turning your head and looking over your shoulder, you can effectively check for any vehicles or obstacles that may be in your blind spot and ensure that it is safe to change lanes.

    Your wheels should be pointed straight ahead, unless you are:

    • A.

      Waiting to make a left turn at a traffic light

    • B.

      Parked on a hill or sloping driveway

    • C.

      Parked on the side of a level roadway and there is no curb

    Correct Answer
    B. Parked on a hill or sloping driveway
    Explanation
    When parked on a hill or sloping driveway, it is important to turn your wheels so that they are pointed towards the curb or edge of the road. This is done to prevent the vehicle from rolling downhill if the parking brake fails. By turning the wheels towards the curb, the vehicle will roll into the curb rather than into traffic if it starts to move. Therefore, the correct answer is "parked on a hill or sloping driveway."

    • B.

      Drive to the right edge of the road and stop

    • C.

      Stay in your lane, slow down, and let it pass

    Correct Answer
    B. Drive to the right edge of the road and stop
    Explanation
    When you see an emergency vehicle with flashing lights behind you, you should drive to the right edge of the road and stop. This is because emergency vehicles require immediate access to the road and stopping allows them to pass safely and quickly. It is important to give priority to emergency vehicles to ensure that they can reach their destination without any delays.

      Solid red lights, flashing red lights, and blacked-out traffic signals

    • B.

      Solid red lights, red arrows, and flashing yellow lights

    • C.

      Solid red lights, flashing red lights, and yellow lights

    Correct Answer
    A. Solid red lights, flashing red lights, and blacked-out traffic signals
    Explanation
    You must always stop your vehicle at solid red lights, flashing red lights, and blacked-out traffic signals. Solid red lights indicate that you must come to a complete stop and wait until the light turns green. Flashing red lights also require you to stop, as they indicate the same as a solid red light. Blacked-out traffic signals are treated as a four-way stop, meaning that all vehicles must come to a complete stop and proceed with caution.

    • A.

      Often to see how traffic is moving behind you

    • B.

      Only on a freeway or highway

    • C.

      Only when you are slowing down

    Correct Answer
    A. Often to see how traffic is moving behind you
    Explanation
    Checking your rearview mirrors often is important to see how traffic is moving behind you. This allows you to stay aware of any vehicles approaching from behind, their speed, and their distance from your vehicle. By regularly checking your mirrors, you can make informed decisions while driving, such as changing lanes or adjusting your speed to maintain a safe distance from other vehicles. This practice is applicable in all driving scenarios, not just on freeways or highways, and not only when you are slowing down.

    You must notify DMV within 5 days if you:

    • A.

      Sell or transfer your vehicle

    • B.

      Paint your vehicle a different color

    • C.

      Are cited for a traffic violation

    Correct Answer
    A. Sell or transfer your vehicle
    Explanation
    If you sell or transfer your vehicle, it is important to notify the DMV within 5 days. This is necessary because the DMV needs to update their records and transfer the ownership of the vehicle to the new owner. Failure to notify the DMV can lead to legal complications and potential liability issues if the new owner is involved in any accidents or violations. Keeping the DMV informed about the sale or transfer of your vehicle ensures a smooth transition of ownership and avoids any potential problems in the future.

      Stop, then proceed when all pedestrians have crossed

    • C.

      Change lanes, look carefully, and pass the stopped vehicle

    Correct Answer
    B. Stop, then proceed when all pedestrians have crossed
    Explanation
    When the driver ahead of you stops at a crosswalk, it is important to prioritize the safety of pedestrians. Therefore, you should stop and wait until all pedestrians have crossed the crosswalk before proceeding. This ensures that you do not endanger the pedestrians and follow the rules of the road.

    It is illegal for a person under 21 years of age to drive with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) that is _____ or more.

    • A.

      0.08%

    • B.

      0.01%

    • C.

      0.05%

    Correct Answer
    B. 0.01%
    Explanation
    In most countries, including the United States, the legal limit for blood alcohol concentration (BAC) while driving is 0.08%. However, the question specifically mentions that the person in question is under 21 years of age. In many jurisdictions, there are stricter laws for underage drivers, and it is illegal for them to drive with any measurable amount of alcohol in their system. Therefore, the correct answer is 0.01%, indicating that even a small amount of alcohol can result in legal consequences for underage drivers.

      Look directly in front of your car

    • C.

      Scan from side to side

    Correct Answer
    C. Scan from side to side
    Explanation
    When looking ahead while driving, it is important to scan from side to side. This allows the driver to be aware of their surroundings and potential hazards that may be present on the road. By scanning from side to side, the driver can effectively monitor the movement of other vehicles, pedestrians, and any obstacles that may be in their path. This helps to ensure a safe and proactive driving experience.

    If you want to pass a bicyclist in a narrow traffic lane when an oncoming car is approaching:

    • A.

      Honk your horn, then pass the bicyclist

    • B.

      Slow down and let the car pass, then pass the bicyclist

    • C.

      Wait until the bicyclist rides off the roadway

    Correct Answer
    B. Slow down and let the car pass, then pass the bicyclist
    Explanation
    When approaching a narrow traffic lane with an oncoming car and a bicyclist, it is important to prioritize safety. Honking the horn may startle the bicyclist and could potentially cause an accident. Waiting until the bicyclist rides off the roadway is not a safe option as it may take a long time. The best course of action is to slow down and let the car pass first, ensuring there is enough space and time to safely pass the bicyclist afterwards. This allows for a safer and more controlled maneuver.

    Rate this question:

  • 28. 

    If there is a deep puddle in the road ahead, you should:

    • A.

      Maintain the posted speed and drive through the water

    • B.

      Steer your vehicle around the water, if possible

    • C.

      Shift into neutral as you drive through the water

    Correct Answer
    B. Steer your vehicle around the water, if possible
    Explanation
    When encountering a deep puddle in the road, it is best to steer your vehicle around the water if possible. Driving through deep water can cause damage to your vehicle and increase the risk of hydroplaning, losing control, or stalling. It is safer to avoid the water by steering around it, if there is enough space to do so.

    When merging onto a freeway, you should be driving:

    • A.

      At or near the same speed as the freeway traffic

    • B.

      At the legal freeway speed limit

    • C.

      Slower than the freeway traffic

    Correct Answer
    A. At or near the same speed as the freeway traffic
    Explanation
    When merging onto a freeway, it is important to match the speed of the freeway traffic or be close to it. This allows for a smooth and safe merging process, as it minimizes the speed differential between your vehicle and the vehicles already on the freeway. Merging at a significantly slower speed can disrupt the flow of traffic and potentially cause accidents. Therefore, it is best to merge at or near the same speed as the freeway traffic.

    • C.

      Merge into another lane and try to go around the traffic

    Correct Answer
    A. Stay out of the intersection until traffic clears
    Explanation
    When you have a green light but the intersection is blocked by traffic, the correct course of action is to stay out of the intersection until the traffic clears. This is because entering the intersection when it is blocked can lead to traffic congestion and potentially cause accidents. It is important to wait patiently and allow the traffic to clear before proceeding through the intersection.

    To turn left from a one-way street onto a one-way street, start from:

    • A.

      The lane closest to the left curb

    • B.

      The center lane

    • C.

      Any lane as long as it seems safe to do so

    Correct Answer
    A. The lane closest to the left curb
    Explanation
    When turning left from a one-way street onto another one-way street, it is advisable to start from the lane closest to the left curb. This is because it allows for a smoother and safer turn, as you will be closer to the direction you are turning and have a better view of any oncoming traffic. Starting from the center lane or any other lane may increase the risk of colliding with vehicles coming from the opposite direction.

    Cargo extending more than four feet from your rear bumper:

    • A.

      Is illegal under all circumstances

      Must be marked with a red flag or lights

    • C.

      Does not legally have to be marked, but it is a good idea

    Correct Answer
    B. Must be marked with a red flag or lights
    Explanation
    Cargo extending more than four feet from your rear bumper must be marked with a red flag or lights. This is because it poses a potential hazard to other drivers on the road. By marking the cargo with a red flag or lights, it becomes more visible to other drivers, reducing the risk of accidents or collisions. This is a safety measure that is required by law to ensure the safety of both the driver carrying the cargo and other road users.

      They have the right-of-way

    • C.

      It is required by law

    Correct Answer
    A. They may not see you
    Explanation
    Drivers should give extra space to drivers backing out of parking spaces because they may not see you. This is important because drivers may have blind spots or limited visibility when backing out, and they may not be able to see pedestrians or other vehicles approaching. By giving them extra space, it reduces the risk of accidents and allows them to safely maneuver out of the parking space.
