Practice for DMV written test.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    You see a car approaching from the rear. When you check your mirror again to change lanes, you no longer see the car. You should:

    • A.

      Look over your shoulder to be sure the car isn't in your blind spot.

    • B.

      Turn your signal on and change lanes slowly.

    • C.

      Check your outside mirror to see if the car is in your blind spot.

    Correct Answer
    A. Look over your shoulder to be sure the car isn't in your blind spot.
    Explanation
    When you check your mirror and no longer see the car approaching from the rear, it is important to look over your shoulder to be sure the car isn't in your blind spot. Mirrors have limitations and may not always provide a complete view of the surrounding traffic. By looking over your shoulder, you can ensure that there are no vehicles in your blind spot before changing lanes. It is essential to take this extra precaution to avoid a potential collision.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Who has the right-of-way at an intersection with no crosswalks?

    • A.

      Pedestrians always have the right-of-way.

    • B.

      Vehicles, but only should slow down and be careful.

    • C.

      Pedestrians, but only with the green "WALK" signal.

    Correct Answer
    A. Pedestrians always have the right-of-way.
    Explanation
    Pedestrians always have the right-of-way at an intersection with no crosswalks because they are more vulnerable and at a higher risk of injury compared to vehicles. It is important for drivers to yield to pedestrians and allow them to cross safely. Even though there may not be a designated crosswalk, pedestrians still have the right to cross the road, and drivers should be cautious and attentive to their presence.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    You are driving 55 mph on a two-lane highway, on lane in each direction, and want to pass the car ahead of you. To pass safely, you need to:

    • A.

      Wait until solid double, yellow lines separate the lanes.

    • B.

      Increase your speed to 65 mph.

    • C.

      Have a large enough gap in the on coming traffic.

    Correct Answer
    C. Have a large enough gap in the on coming traffic.
    Explanation
    To pass the car ahead of you safely, you need to have a large enough gap in the oncoming traffic. This is because passing requires moving into the oncoming lane, and doing so without a sufficient gap in traffic can lead to a collision. Waiting until solid double yellow lines separate the lanes is also important, as these lines indicate a no-passing zone where passing is prohibited. Increasing your speed to 65 mph is not necessary for passing safely and may actually increase the risk of an accident.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    If you are unable to see the road ahead while driving because of heavy fog and your wipers do not help, you should :

    • A.

      Slow down and continue driving.

    • B.

      Turn on your high beams and continue driving.

    • C.

      Pull off the road completely until visibility improves.

    Correct Answer
    C. Pull off the road completely until visibility improves.
    Explanation
    In heavy fog, when you are unable to see the road ahead and your wipers do not help, it is unsafe to continue driving. Slowing down may not be sufficient to avoid accidents. Turning on your high beams can actually worsen visibility by reflecting off the fog. The safest option is to pull off the road completely until visibility improves. This allows you to avoid potential collisions and wait for the fog to clear before continuing your journey.

  • 5. 

    You must notify DMV within 5 days if you:

    • A.

      Are cited for a traffic violation.

    • B.

      Sell or transfer your vehicle.

    • C.

      Paint your vehicle a different color.

    Correct Answer
    B. Sell or transfer your vehicle.
    Explanation
    According to the given information, you must notify the DMV within 5 days if you sell or transfer your vehicle. There is no mention of notifying the DMV for being cited for a traffic violation or painting your vehicle a different color. Therefore, the correct answer is to sell or transfer your vehicle.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    All children under age six riding in your vehicle must use a child passenger restraint system unless:

    • A.

      They are not your children.

    • B.

      A child passenger restraint system is not available.

    • C.

      They weigh 60 pounds or more.

    Correct Answer
    C. They weigh 60 pounds or more.
    Explanation
    Children who weigh 60 pounds or more are exempted from using a child passenger restraint system. This means that if a child weighs 60 pounds or more, they do not need to use a child passenger restraint system while riding in the vehicle.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    It is a good habit to signal continuously during the last 100 feet before you turn at an intersection:

    • A.

      Unless you are in a designated turn lane.

    • B.

      Unless your turn is protected by a green arrow.

    • C.

      Even if you do not see any other vehicles around.

    Correct Answer
    C. Even if you do not see any other vehicles around.
    Explanation
    It is important to signal continuously during the last 100 feet before turning at an intersection, even if you do not see any other vehicles around. This is because signaling is not just for the benefit of other drivers, but also for pedestrians and cyclists who may be present. By signaling, you are indicating your intentions and allowing others to anticipate your actions, which helps to prevent accidents and promote overall safety on the road.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    If five or more vehicles are following you on a narrow two-lane road:

    • A.

      Move to the right side of your lane and drive slowly.

    • B.

      Pull off the road when it is safe and let them pass.

    • C.

      Continue driving because you have the right-of-way.

    Correct Answer
    B. Pull off the road when it is safe and let them pass.
    Explanation
    If five or more vehicles are following you on a narrow two-lane road, it is best to pull off the road when it is safe and let them pass. This is the safest option as it allows the vehicles behind you to proceed at their desired speed without the risk of tailgating or aggressive driving. It also helps to alleviate any potential congestion or frustration on the road. By pulling off the road, you are being courteous and ensuring a smoother flow of traffic for everyone involved.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    If you are towing another vehicle or trailer on a freeway with four lanes in your direction, you may travel in:

    • A.

      Any of the traffic lanes in your direction.

    • B.

      Either of the two right lanes.

    • C.

      The far right lane only.

    Correct Answer
    B. Either of the two right lanes.
    Explanation
    When towing another vehicle or trailer on a freeway with four lanes in your direction, you are allowed to travel in either of the two right lanes. This is because the right lanes are generally slower and provide more space for maneuvering while towing. The far right lane is specifically mentioned as an option, but it is not the only lane you can use. Therefore, you have the flexibility to choose between the two right lanes when towing on a four-lane freeway.

    It is illegal for a person 21 years of age or older to drive with blood alcohol concentration (BAC) that is ________ or higher.

    • A.

      0.08% - Eight hundredths of one percent.

    • B.

      0.10% - One tenth of one percent.

    • C.

      0.05% - Five hundredths of one percent.

    Correct Answer
    A. 0.08% - Eight hundredths of one percent.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 0.08% - Eight hundredths of one percent. This is the legal limit for blood alcohol concentration (BAC) for individuals who are 21 years of age or older. It means that if a person's BAC is 0.08% or higher, they are considered to be driving under the influence and can be charged with a DUI offense.

    You may legally park your car in front of a driveway:

    • A.

      If the driveway is in front of your house.

    • B.

      As long as it is not parked for longer than 15 minutes.

    • C.

      Under no circumstances.

    Correct Answer
    C. Under no circumstances.
    Explanation
    Under no circumstances can you legally park your car in front of a driveway. This means that regardless of whether the driveway is in front of your house or if you are only parked for a short period of time, it is still not allowed. Parking in front of a driveway can obstruct the entrance or exit of vehicles, causing inconvenience and potential hazards. Therefore, it is important to always avoid parking in front of driveways to ensure the smooth flow of traffic and to respect the rights of other drivers.

    If you approach an intersection without a stop sign or signals, you:

    • A.

      Should always stop before driving through the intersection.

    • B.

      Must yield the right-of-way to all other vehicles.

    • C.

      Should slow down and be ready to stop. If necessary.

    Correct Answer
    C. Should slow down and be ready to stop. If necessary.
    Explanation
    When approaching an intersection without a stop sign or signals, the correct course of action is to slow down and be prepared to stop if necessary. This is because there may be other vehicles approaching the intersection from different directions, and it is important to be cautious and ready to yield the right-of-way if required. Simply slowing down and being prepared to stop allows for better visibility and reaction time, ensuring safety at the intersection.

    When parked on any hill, always set your parking brake and:

    • A.

      Leave your vehicle in neutral.

    • B.

      Keep your front wheels parallel to the road.

    • C.

      Leave your vehicle in gear or the "Park" position.

    Correct Answer
    C. Leave your vehicle in gear or the "Park" position.
    Explanation
    When parked on a hill, it is important to set your parking brake to prevent your vehicle from rolling. Leaving your vehicle in gear or the "Park" position adds an extra layer of safety by providing additional resistance to prevent the vehicle from moving. This is especially important when parking on a steep hill, as the parking brake alone may not be enough to hold the vehicle in place. Keeping the front wheels parallel to the road is also a good practice, but it is not directly related to preventing the vehicle from rolling.

    Rate this question:

  • 14.

    • C.

      There is a pedestrian crosswalk ahead.

    Correct Answer
    C. There is a pedestrian crosswalk ahead.
    Explanation
    The sign indicates that there is a pedestrian crosswalk ahead. This means that drivers should be cautious and prepared to yield to pedestrians who may be crossing the road. The sign serves as a warning for drivers to slow down and be aware of pedestrians in the area.
