### When turning at an intersection :

• A.

You have right of way when turning right

• B.

You may overtake another vehicle when turning correct

• C.

You must stop if the robot turns red even if the flashing green filter arrow is on for you to turn right

• D.

None of the above

D. None of the above
Explanation
None of the options provided in the question is correct. When turning at an intersection, the general rule is to yield the right of way to oncoming traffic and pedestrians. You should only proceed with the turn when it is safe and there are no conflicting vehicles or pedestrians. The traffic signal and any applicable signs or signals should be obeyed, regardless of the direction of the turn. Therefore, the correct answer is none of the above.

Rate this question:

• 3.

### When approaching an intersection you must stop if:

• A.

Passengers are waiting to be picked up

• B.

The robot turns to amber and you will stop over the line

• C.

There is a long queue of vehicles in front of you trying to cross the road

• D.

The robot turns amber and you can stop safely behind the stop line

D. The robot turns amber and you can stop safely behind the stop line
Explanation
When approaching an intersection, you must stop if the robot turns amber and you can stop safely behind the stop line. This means that if the traffic light changes to amber and you have enough time to come to a safe stop before crossing the stop line, you should do so. Stopping behind the stop line is important for ensuring the safety of other vehicles and pedestrians at the intersection.

Rate this question:

• 4.

### When approaching a robot and the red light is flashing, you must:

• A.

Keep moving slowly through the intersection if there is no traffic

• B.

Stop and, when safe, pull off again as at a four â€“way stop

• C.

Stop and wait for it to turn green before you can go

• D.

B. Stop and, when safe, pull off again as at a four â€“way stop
Explanation
When approaching a robot (traffic signal) and the red light is flashing, the correct action is to stop and, when it is safe to do so, proceed as if it were a four-way stop intersection. This means that you should yield the right of way to any other vehicles or pedestrians who arrived at the intersection before you. Once it is safe, you can then continue through the intersection. The flashing red light indicates a malfunction or temporary situation with the traffic signal, requiring drivers to treat it as a stop sign.

Rate this question:

• 5.

### When turning right or left at an intersection you must:

• A.

Slow down to a safe speed and turn when it is safe

• B.

Indicate just before turning and turn when it is safe

• C.

Observe around you and indicate well in advance of the turn, slow down to a lower gear, and turn after ensuring that it is safe

• D.

Overtake another turning vehicle if it is moving too slowly

C. Observe around you and indicate well in advance of the turn, slow down to a lower gear, and turn after ensuring that it is safe
Explanation
When turning right or left at an intersection, it is important to observe the surrounding environment and indicate your intention to turn well in advance. This allows other drivers to anticipate your actions and adjust their own driving accordingly. Slowing down to a lower gear helps to control the speed and maneuver the turn smoothly. Finally, it is crucial to ensure that it is safe to make the turn before proceeding. This involves checking for oncoming traffic, pedestrians, and any other potential hazards that may affect the turn.

Rate this question:

• 6.

### You may not enter an intersection if:

• A.

There is already traffic in the intersection waiting to move and the lights may change at any time

• B.

You want to turn right and there is not enough space in the intersection for other vehicles to turn safely

• C.

(A )and (B)

• D.

None of the above

C. (A )and (B)
Explanation
You may not enter an intersection if there is already traffic in the intersection waiting to move and the lights may change at any time, or if you want to turn right and there is not enough space in the intersection for other vehicles to turn safely. This means that both options (A) and (B) are correct.

Rate this question:

• 7.

### When approaching a four-way stop, the driver must:

• A.

Stop behind the vehicle in front and drive off together with the other vehicle

• B.

Stop regardless of whether there is other traffic or not, and only move if it is safe to do so

• C.

Give the appropriate signal and then keep moving if there is no other traffic coming

• D.

Stop and only move off when there is no other traffic in sight

B. Stop regardless of whether there is other traffic or not, and only move if it is safe to do so
Explanation
When approaching a four-way stop, the driver must stop regardless of whether there is other traffic or not, and only move if it is safe to do so. This means that the driver should always come to a complete stop at the stop sign, even if there are no other vehicles present. They should then proceed only when it is safe to do so, checking for any oncoming traffic or pedestrians before moving off. This ensures that the driver is following the rules of the road and prioritizing safety.

### When are the maximum distances that driving and passing beams should be able to illuminate:

• A.

Driving beams 100 m â€“ passing beams 50 m

• B.

Driving beams 150 m â€“ passing beams 75 m

• C.

Driving beams 100 m â€“ passing beams 40 m

• D.

Driving beams 175 m â€“ passing beams 50 m

C. Driving beams 100 m â€“ passing beams 40 m
Explanation
The maximum distances that driving and passing beams should be able to illuminate are determined by the requirements for safe driving and passing. Driving beams should be able to illuminate a distance of 100 m, which allows the driver to see the road ahead clearly and react to any obstacles or hazards in time. Passing beams, on the other hand, should be able to illuminate a distance of 40 m, which is shorter than the driving beam distance. This is because passing beams are used when overtaking another vehicle, and the shorter distance ensures that the driver can see any oncoming traffic and safely complete the pass.

• A.

Swerve and pass the vehicle

• B.

Stop without swerving

• C.

Hoot and accelerate past it

• D.

• B.

5 m from a roadway crossing

• C.

4 m from a tunnel

• D.

Opposite another vehicle where the road is 8 m wide?

A. 9 m from a pedestrian crossing
Explanation
It is legal to stop your vehicle 9 m from a pedestrian crossing. This is because stopping too close to a pedestrian crossing can obstruct the view of pedestrians and other drivers, potentially leading to accidents. By stopping 9 m away, there is enough space for pedestrians to safely cross and for other vehicles to have clear visibility of the crossing.

### To avoid a fine, you must produce your licence on request from a traffic officer:

• A.

Within 24 hours

• B.

Within 36 hours

• C.

Immediately

• D.

Within 12 hours

C. Immediately
Explanation
When a traffic officer requests to see your license, you are required to produce it immediately. This means that you must present your license to the officer without any delay or hesitation. Failing to do so may result in a fine. It is important to have your license readily accessible while driving to comply with this requirement.

### Under normal circumstances it is legal for a driver to allow a passenger to do the following:

• A.

Shift the gears for him/her

• B.

Hold the steering wheel

• C.

Make hand signals

• D.

None of the above

D. None of the above
Explanation
Under normal circumstances, it is not legal for a driver to allow a passenger to shift gears, hold the steering wheel, or make hand signals. These tasks should be performed solely by the driver to ensure safe and responsible control of the vehicle. Allowing a passenger to perform these actions can lead to accidents, loss of control, and violation of traffic laws. Therefore, the correct answer is "None of the above."

Rate this question:

• D.

None of the above

D. None of the above
Explanation
According to most traffic regulations, it is generally not permissible to park your vehicle within a certain distance of an intersection. The specific distance may vary depending on local laws, but it is typically more than 5 meters. Therefore, none of the given options (4 m, 3.5 m, 5 m) are correct.

Rate this question:

• 32.

### Seat belts must be worn:

• A.

• B.

While parking

• C.

When the vehicle is parked

• D.

All of the above

A. When driving on all roads
Explanation
Seat belts must be worn when driving on all roads because they are designed to keep occupants safe in the event of a collision or sudden stop. Wearing a seat belt reduces the risk of being thrown from the vehicle, hitting the windshield, or colliding with other passengers. It also helps to distribute the force of impact across the strongest parts of the body, minimizing the risk of serious injury. Therefore, it is important to always wear a seat belt while driving to ensure personal safety and comply with traffic laws.

Rate this question:

• 33.

### To avoid being fined, a driver must ensure that a small child sits:

• A.

On the driverâ€™s lap

• B.

On a passengerâ€™s lap

• C.

In a special child seat and is properly secured with a seat belt

• D.

All of the above

C. In a special child seat and is properly secured with a seat belt
Explanation
To avoid being fined, a driver must ensure that a small child sits in a special child seat and is properly secured with a seat belt. This is the safest option for the child as it provides proper restraint and protection in the event of an accident. Having the child sit on the driver's or passenger's lap is not recommended as it does not provide the same level of safety and increases the risk of injury. Therefore, the correct answer is that the child should be in a special child seat and properly secured with a seat belt.

Rate this question:

(i), (ii), (iii) and (iv)

• B.

(i), (ii) and (iii)

• C.

(i)

• D.

(ii)

D. (ii)
Explanation
Under normal circumstances, a driver may stop on a freeway to change a flat tire. This is a common and necessary reason for stopping on a freeway as it ensures the safety and proper functioning of the vehicle. Stopping to pick up a hitchhiker, stretching legs, or taking a break are not recommended or allowed on freeways due to safety concerns and regulations.

Rate this question:

• 35.

### Your vehicle will be towed away and impounded if left:

• A.

For 12 hours in the same place next to a public road in a rural area

• B.

For 24 hours or more in the same place next to a public place in a rural area

• C.

For 5 days in the same place next to a public road in an urban area

• D.

All of the above

B. For 24 hours or more in the same place next to a public place in a rural area
Explanation
If a vehicle is left in the same place next to a public road in a rural area for 24 hours or more, it will be towed away and impounded. This suggests that leaving a vehicle unattended for an extended period of time in a rural area next to a public road is not allowed and will result in the vehicle being removed and stored by authorities.

Rate this question:

• 36.

### What is the longest time you may leave your vehicle parked in one place next to a public road in a urban area:

• A.

21 days

• B.

10 days

• C.

7 days

• D.

6 days

C. 7 days
Explanation
In an urban area, the longest time you may leave your vehicle parked in one place next to a public road is 7 days. This is likely because urban areas have limited parking spaces and high demand for parking, so long-term parking is not allowed to ensure fair access for all drivers. Additionally, leaving a vehicle parked for an extended period of time can create congestion and inconvenience for others.

Rate this question:

• 37.

### Under normal circumstances you may do the following:

• A.

Fill up with petrol while the engine is running

• B.

Drive on a sidewalk

• C.

Move backwards without checking for safety

• D.

None of the above

D. None of the above
Explanation
None of the options listed are safe or legal actions to take while driving. Filling up with petrol while the engine is running can be dangerous due to the potential for sparks igniting the fuel. Driving on a sidewalk is illegal and poses a risk to pedestrians. Moving backwards without checking for safety can result in accidents or collisions. Therefore, none of the options provided are appropriate choices while driving.

Rate this question:

• 38.

### You may not use your hooter except under the following circumstances:

• A.

To signal to someone that you want to offer them a lift

• B.

In an attempt to avoid a collision

• C.

To tell the driver in front to go faster

• D.

None of above

B. In an attempt to avoid a collision
Explanation
The correct answer is "In an attempt to avoid a collision." This means that you are only allowed to use your hooter (horn) when you are trying to prevent a crash or accident from happening. Using the horn in any other situation, such as offering someone a lift or pressuring the driver in front to go faster, is not permitted.

Rate this question:

• 39.

### What else is important about the hooter:

• A.

You must be able to hear it from at least 40 m away

• B.

You can only hoot once in front of a hospital

• C.

The tone or pitch of the sound may not change

• D.

None of above

C. The tone or pitch of the sound may not change
Explanation
The hooter must have a consistent tone or pitch, meaning it should not vary or change while it is being sounded. This is important because it allows for clear and consistent communication in situations where the hooter is used, such as in emergency situations or to alert others of a potential danger. If the tone or pitch were to change, it could cause confusion or misunderstanding, potentially leading to a delay in response or an ineffective warning.

### What is a safe following distance at all speeds:

• A.

3 seconds

• B.

2 seconds

• C.

4 seconds

• D.

All of the above

B. 2 seconds
Explanation
A safe following distance at all speeds is 2 seconds.

Never exceed the speed limit

• B.

Keep as far to the left as is safe

• C.

• D.

Always be a courteous and helpful driver

B. Keep as far to the left as is safe
Explanation
The most important rule of the road in South Africa is to keep as far to the left as is safe. This is because in South Africa, like in many other countries that drive on the left side of the road, vehicles are supposed to drive on the left-hand side. By keeping to the left, it ensures that traffic flows smoothly and reduces the risk of accidents. It also allows for easier overtaking of slower vehicles on the right side. Therefore, it is crucial for drivers in South Africa to adhere to this rule for the safety of themselves and others on the road.

• B.

Apply your brakes a few times, then change lanes

• C.

• D.

None of above

C. Check the traffic behind and in the blind spot, then signal and change lanes when it is safe
Explanation
When changing lanes, it is important to check the traffic behind and in the blind spot. This is to ensure that there are no vehicles approaching from the rear or in the adjacent lane that may be in your blind spot. After ensuring that it is safe to proceed, you should then signal your intention to change lanes and make the lane change. Applying brakes a few times before changing lanes is not necessary and may confuse other drivers. Therefore, the correct procedure is to check the traffic, signal, and change lanes when it is safe.

This ensures that there is enough time to safely cross the road without interfering with the flow of traffic. It is crucial to prioritize safety and make sure that there is no immediate or potential danger before crossing a road.
