    Explanation
    The correct answer is 10. According to section 543.006, the time specified in the notice to appear must be at least 10 days after the date of arrest unless the person arrested demands an earlier hearing. This allows the person enough time to prepare for their hearing and gather any necessary evidence or legal representation.

    A person may comply with a written promise to appear in court by an appearance by counsel.

This allows the person to fulfill their legal obligation without physically being present in court themselves.

    • D.

    Correct Answer
    B. Before coming within 200ft of approaching traffic
    Explanation
    When an operator of a motor vehicle is passing another vehicle on the left of the center of the roadway, they should return to an authorized lane of travel before coming within 200ft of approaching traffic. This is to ensure that there is enough distance between the passing vehicle and the oncoming traffic for a safe merge back into the lane. This helps to prevent accidents and allows for a smooth flow of traffic.

  • 7. 

     an operator may not perform a U- turn when approaching a curve or crest of a grade if the vehicle is not visible to another operator approaching from either direction within ______

    • A.

    • B.

      300ft

    • C.

      200ft

    • D.

      100ft

    Correct Answer
    A. 500ft
    Explanation
    An operator may not perform a U-turn when approaching a curve or crest of a grade if the vehicle is not visible to another operator approaching from either direction within 500ft. This distance is necessary to ensure that there is enough visibility for other drivers to react and avoid a potential collision. Performing a U-turn in such a situation could be dangerous and increase the risk of accidents.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    An operator shall signal a turn for not less than the last ____ ft of movement before turn.

    • A.

      500

    • B.

      200

    • C.

      300

    • D.

      100

    Correct Answer
    D. 100
    Explanation
    An operator is required to signal a turn for at least the last 100 feet of movement before making the turn. This is important for the safety of other drivers and pedestrians, as it gives them sufficient notice and time to react to the upcoming turn. Signaling in advance helps to prevent accidents and promotes smooth traffic flow.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    When approaching an emergency vehicle that is  using visual signals an operator shall (if no lane is available to move over to) slow to a rate of ______ when the posted speed limit is 70.

    • A.

      25 MPH

    • B.

      50 MPH

    • C.

      60 MPH

    • D.

      Stay traveling the speed you were traveling

    • E.

      20 MPH

    Correct Answer
    B. 50 MPH
    Explanation
    When approaching an emergency vehicle that is using visual signals, an operator should slow down to a rate of 50 MPH when the posted speed limit is 70. This is because it is important to reduce speed and be cautious when passing emergency vehicles to ensure the safety of both the emergency personnel and other drivers on the road. Slowing down to 50 MPH allows for better control and reaction time in case of any sudden changes or emergencies.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    An operator  approaching a railroad grade crossing shall stop not closer than ______ or farther than ______ from the nearest rail if a crossing gate is lowered.

    • A.

      15ft, 40ft

    • B.

      25ft, 50ft

    • C.

      15ft, 50ft

    • D.

      25ft, 100ft

    Correct Answer
    C. 15ft, 50ft
    Explanation
    When approaching a railroad grade crossing with a lowered crossing gate, an operator is required to stop not closer than 15ft from the nearest rail. However, they should also not stop farther than 50ft from the nearest rail. This ensures that there is enough distance for the operator to safely stop and wait for the crossing gate to be raised before proceeding.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    A child should be in a child safety seat if they are younger than ____, unless the child is taller than ______

    • A.

      8yr, 4'9"

    • B.

      8yr, 3'

    • C.

      5yr, 3'9'

    • D.

      5yr, 4'

    Correct Answer
    A. 8yr, 4'9"
    Explanation
    Children should be in a child safety seat if they are younger than 8 years old, unless the child is taller than 4'9". This is because child safety seats are designed to provide proper protection for younger children who may not yet be tall enough to safely use a regular seat belt. However, once a child reaches the age of 8 or is taller than 4'9", they are usually considered to be big enough to safely use a regular seat belt without the need for a child safety seat.

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In many jurisdictions, a person operating a motorcycle is required to wear an approved helmet regardless of age. Helmet laws vary by country and within countries, but the statement is broadly accurate for areas with helmet laws in place to enhance safety for motorcyclists.
