    If you drive faster than other vehicles on a road with one lane in each direction and continually pass the other cars, you will:

    • A.

      Get you to your destination much faster and safer.

    • B.

      Increase your chances of an accident.

    • C.

    Correct Answer
    B. Increase your chances of an accident.
    Explanation
    Driving faster than other vehicles on a road with one lane in each direction and continually passing other cars increases the chances of an accident. This is because driving at a higher speed makes it more difficult to react to unexpected situations or sudden maneuvers by other drivers. Additionally, constantly changing lanes and passing other vehicles increases the risk of collisions. It is important to drive at a safe and reasonable speed to ensure the safety of yourself and others on the road.

    Correct Answer
    C. Under no circumstances
    Explanation
    It is never safe or legal to drive off of the paved roadway to pass another vehicle. This action can be dangerous and increase the risk of accidents. Drivers should always wait for a safe and legal opportunity to pass another vehicle on the road.

    • A.

      A 3-axle vehicle if the Gross Vehicle Weight is less than 6,000 pounds.

    • C.

      A vehicle pulling two trailers.

    Correct Answer
    A. A 3-axle vehicle if the Gross Vehicle Weight is less than 6,000 pounds.
    Explanation
    A person with a Class C driver's license is allowed to drive a 3-axle vehicle if the Gross Vehicle Weight is less than 6,000 pounds. This means that they can operate a vehicle with three axles as long as it does not exceed the weight limit of 6,000 pounds.

    • A.

      Leave a note on the vehicle.

    • B.

      Report the accident without delay to the city police or, in unincorporated areas, to the CHP.

    • C.

      Both of the above.

    Correct Answer
    C. Both of the above.
    Explanation
    In the given scenario, if you have been involved in a minor traffic collision with a parked vehicle and cannot find the owner, you must both leave a note on the vehicle and report the accident without delay to the city police or, in unincorporated areas, to the CHP. Leaving a note on the vehicle is important to inform the owner about the incident and provide your contact information. Reporting the accident to the authorities is necessary to ensure that the incident is properly documented and to comply with legal requirements. Therefore, both actions are required in this situation.

    Unless otherwise posted the speed limit in a residential area is ____.

    • A.

      20 mph

    • B.

      25 mph

    • C.

      30 mph

    Correct Answer
    B. 25 mph
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 25 mph. In most residential areas, the speed limit is set at 25 mph for the safety of pedestrians, cyclists, and other vehicles. This lower speed limit helps to reduce the risk of accidents and allows for better control and reaction time while driving in a neighborhood. It also helps to create a quieter and more peaceful environment for residents.

    A driver in front of you is signaling with his or her hand and arm pointing upward. This driver wants to:

    • A.

      Turn right

      Turn left

    • C.

      Slow down

    • D.

      Stop

    Correct Answer
    A. Turn right
    Explanation
    When a driver in front signals with their hand and arm pointing upward, it indicates their intention to turn right. This is a universally recognized hand signal used to communicate their next maneuver to other drivers on the road. By extending their hand and arm upward, the driver is indicating that they will be making a right turn at the upcoming intersection or junction.

    On a two-lane undivided highway, the maximum speed limit for vehicles towing trailers is:

    • A.

      60 mph

    • B.

      55 mph

    • C.

      70 mph

    • D.

      65 mph 

    Correct Answer
    B. 55 mph
    Explanation
    On a two-lane undivided highway, the maximum speed limit for vehicles towing trailers is 55 mph. This is because towing a trailer can affect the stability and maneuverability of the vehicle, making it less safe to travel at higher speeds. The lower speed limit helps to reduce the risk of accidents and allows the driver to have better control over the vehicle while towing a trailer.

    To avoid tailgating, one should follow the:

    • A.

      Four- second rule 

    • B.

      Six-second rule

    • C.

      Three-second rule

    • D.

      Two-second rule

    Correct Answer
    C. Three-second rule
    Explanation
    The three-second rule is a safe driving practice that helps prevent tailgating. It states that a driver should maintain a minimum distance of three seconds between their vehicle and the vehicle in front of them. This allows for enough time and space to react to any sudden changes or emergencies on the road. By following this rule, drivers can reduce the risk of rear-end collisions and maintain a safe driving distance.

    • A.

      5 years

    • B.

      2 years 

    • C.

      7 years 

    • D.

      3 years 

    Correct Answer
    C. 7 years 
    Explanation
    If a person is convicted of causing serious bodily injury when trying to evade a peace officer, the maximum imprisonment is 7 years. This means that if someone intentionally causes significant harm to another person while attempting to escape from a law enforcement officer, they can be sentenced to a maximum of 7 years in prison. This punishment is likely due to the severity of the offense and the potential danger posed to both the officer and the public during the evasion.

    When you want to enter a freeway, you should:

    • A.

      Stop and yield to the traffic on the freeway

    • B.

      Enter the freeway at or near the speed of freeway traffic

    • C.

      Stop before merging into freeway traffic

    • D.

      Enter the freeway at a minimum speed

    Correct Answer
    B. Enter the freeway at or near the speed of freeway traffic
    Explanation
    When entering a freeway, it is important to enter at or near the speed of the traffic already on the freeway. This allows for a smooth and safe merge, as merging at a significantly lower speed can disrupt the flow of traffic and potentially cause accidents. By matching the speed of the freeway traffic, you can seamlessly merge into the flow without causing any disruptions or hazards.
