    When stopping behind a heavy vehicle, you should:

    • A.

      Slow down, inch your way forward and stop close behind it.

    • B.

      Keep a further distance from it than you would from a smaller vehicle.

    • C.

      Switch on your hazard lights.

    • D.

      Pull your handbrake

    Correct Answer
    B. Keep a further distance from it than you would from a smaller vehicle.
    Explanation
    When stopping behind a heavy vehicle, it is important to keep a further distance from it than you would from a smaller vehicle. This is because heavy vehicles, such as trucks or buses, have larger blind spots and may require more space to maneuver. By keeping a greater distance, you allow the driver of the heavy vehicle to see you in their mirrors and have enough room to make any necessary maneuvers without the risk of a collision. This ensures the safety of both you and the driver of the heavy vehicle.

    When dazzled by the headlights of an on coming vehicle, you should:

    • A.

      Slow down and direct your gaze to the left in order to avoid the glare.

    • B.

      Slow down immediately and beam your headlights in order to avoid the glare.

    • C.

      Speed up and bypass it in order to avoid the glare.

    • D.

      Do nothing.

    Correct Answer
    A. Slow down and direct your gaze to the left in order to avoid the glare.
    Explanation
    When dazzled by the headlights of an oncoming vehicle, it is important to slow down to ensure safety and to give yourself more time to react to any potential hazards. Directing your gaze to the left can help to avoid the direct glare of the oncoming headlights, as the left side of the road is usually darker. This can help to reduce the discomfort and temporary blindness caused by the glare, allowing you to maintain control of your vehicle and avoid any potential accidents.

    When driving in wet weather, it is advisable to:

    • A.

      Drive with hazard lights on.

    • B.

      Stop your vehicle immediately and wait for the weather to pass.

    • C.

      Maintain the same speed.

    • D.

      Drive at a slower speed.

    Correct Answer
    D. Drive at a slower speed.
    Explanation
    When driving in wet weather, it is advisable to drive at a slower speed. This is because wet roads can be slippery and reduce the traction between the tires and the road surface. By driving at a slower speed, it allows for better control of the vehicle and reduces the risk of skidding or hydroplaning. Slowing down also gives more time to react to any hazards or sudden changes in road conditions. Therefore, driving at a slower speed is a safer option in wet weather.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    In order for your vehicle to avoid skidding on a wet road when applying emergency brake, you should:

    • A.

      Depress and release the brake pedal repeatedly.

    • B.

      Use handbrake and footbrake concurrently.

    • C.

      Brake hard until the car stops.

    • D.

      Use handbrake only.

    Correct Answer
    A. Depress and release the brake pedal repeatedly.
    Explanation
    Depressing and releasing the brake pedal repeatedly helps to prevent skidding on a wet road when applying the emergency brake. This technique, known as "pumping the brakes," allows the tires to maintain traction with the road surface by preventing them from locking up. When the brakes are pumped, it allows the driver to maintain control of the vehicle and decrease the chances of skidding.

    If your cell phone rings while you are driving, you should

    • A.

      Answer it if you have hands-free device.

    • B.

      Let the call go to voice mail.

    • C.

      Answer it if the call is from your parents.

    • D.

      Answer while driving, and keep a look out for traffic police.

    Correct Answer
    B. Let the call go to voice mail.
    Explanation
    When driving, it is important to focus on the road and minimize distractions. Answering a phone call while driving can divert attention and increase the risk of accidents. Therefore, the best option is to let the call go to voice mail, ensuring safety on the road.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    What should you do if your vehicle starts to aquaplane?

    • A.

      Drive at a constant speed to gain better traction.

    • B.

      Apply the brakes firmly to prevent your vehicle from sliding.

    • C.

      Slow down gradually and not apply the brakes.

    • D.

      Do nothing.

    Correct Answer
    C. Slow down gradually and not apply the brakes.
    Explanation
    When a vehicle starts to aquaplane, it means that the tires lose contact with the road surface due to a layer of water between the tires and the road. In this situation, applying the brakes firmly can cause the tires to lock up and the vehicle to skid uncontrollably. Therefore, the correct action to take is to slow down gradually by easing off the accelerator and not applying the brakes. This allows the tires to regain contact with the road and regain traction, reducing the risk of accidents.

    If another driver suddenly cut his vehicle left in front of you:

    • A.

      Honk your horn to warn the driver and maintain your speed.

    • B.

      Maintain your speed and take your right of way.

    • C.

      Slow or stop your car to prevent an accident.

    • D.

      Overtake then yell at the driver while giving the finger.

    Correct Answer
    C. Slow or stop your car to prevent an accident.
    Explanation
    If another driver suddenly cuts his vehicle left in front of you, the correct response would be to slow or stop your car to prevent an accident. Honking your horn may warn the driver, but it does not guarantee that they will react in time to avoid a collision. Maintaining your speed and taking your right of way can lead to a collision if the other driver does not yield. Overtaking and yelling at the driver while giving the finger is aggressive and dangerous behavior that can escalate the situation and increase the risk of an accident.

    What should you do when approaching a traffic junction?

    • A.

      Speed up and drive through the junction.

    • B.

      Slow down and prepare to stop if the traffic light turns amber.

    • C.

      Maintain your speed.

    • D.

      Honk your horn and flash your lights and go fast through the junction.

    Correct Answer
    B. Slow down and prepare to stop if the traffic light turns amber.
    Explanation
    When approaching a traffic junction, it is important to slow down and prepare to stop if the traffic light turns amber. This is because the amber light is a warning that the light is about to turn red, indicating that you should come to a stop. Speeding up and driving through the junction is dangerous and can lead to accidents. Maintaining your speed is also not recommended as it may not give you enough time to react to changing traffic conditions. Honking your horn and flashing your lights is unnecessary and can be seen as aggressive behavior.

    You are driving on a road where the speed limit is 50 km/h. All of the other cars are driving 55 km/h or faster. You may legally drive:

    • A.

      55 km/h or faster - The speed of traffic.

    • B.

      Anywhere between 50 km/h and 55 km/h.

    • C.

      No faster than 50 km/h.

    • D.

      At least 10km/h faster than the speed limit.

    Correct Answer
    C. No faster than 50 km/h.
    Explanation
    The given scenario states that the speed limit on the road is 50 km/h and all other cars are driving at 55 km/h or faster. This implies that the maximum speed allowed is 50 km/h, and it is illegal to drive faster than that, even if other cars are doing so. Therefore, the correct answer is "No faster than 50 km/h."

    • D.

      Signal, check your mirrors and then look over your shoulder.

    Correct Answer
    D. Signal, check your mirrors and then look over your shoulder.
    Explanation
    The proper way to change lanes is to first signal your intention to change lanes, then check your mirrors to ensure there are no vehicles in your blind spot, and finally look over your shoulder to double-check before making the lane change. This sequence of actions helps ensure the safety of both yourself and other drivers on the road.

    Driving faster than traffic and continually passing other cars:

    • A.

      Increases fuel efficiency.

    • B.

      Helps prevent traffic congestion.

    • C.

      Increases your chance of an accident.

    • D.

      Is ok if you are a parent and late picking up your child.

    Correct Answer
    C. Increases your chance of an accident.
    Explanation
    Driving faster than traffic and continually passing other cars increases your chance of an accident. When you drive at a higher speed than the flow of traffic, you have less time to react to unexpected situations, such as sudden braking or lane changes. Continually passing other cars also increases the risk of collisions, as it requires frequent lane changes and increases the chances of misjudging distances. Therefore, driving faster than traffic and constantly passing other vehicles is not recommended as it compromises safety on the road.

    You should use your horn when:

    • A.

      Another road user cuts your lane abruptly.

    • B.

      Alerting other road users.

    • C.

      Another vehicle is in your way.

    • D.

      Pedestrain jay-walk and you have the right of way.

    Correct Answer
    B. Alerting other road users.
    Explanation
    Using your horn is a way to alert other road users of your presence or to warn them of a potential danger. It is important to use your horn in situations where you need to get the attention of other drivers or pedestrians, such as when someone is not paying attention or is about to make a dangerous move. In this case, the correct answer is "alerting other road users" because using your horn serves the purpose of making others aware of your presence on the road.

    • A.

      5 to 10 km/h slower than traffic on the expressway.

    • B.

      At or near the same speed of traffic on the expressway.

    • C.

      The posted speed limit for traffic on the expressway.

    • D.

      At your vehicle speed limit.

    Correct Answer
    B. At or near the same speed of traffic on the expressway.
    Explanation
    When merging onto the expressway, it is important to match the speed of the traffic already on the expressway. This allows for a smooth and safe merge, preventing any disruptions or accidents. Driving at or near the same speed as the traffic ensures that you are able to merge seamlessly into the flow of vehicles without causing any sudden changes in speed or creating a hazard for other drivers.

    When driving in hazy conditions, you should use your:

    • A.

      Low beam headlights

    • B.

      Highbeam headlights

    • C.

      Fog lights only

    • D.

      Emergency lights

    Correct Answer
    A. Low beam headlights
    Explanation
    When driving in hazy conditions, it is recommended to use low beam headlights. This is because low beam headlights provide a shorter and more focused light beam, which helps to improve visibility without causing glare or reflecting off the particles in the haze. High beam headlights can actually worsen visibility in hazy conditions by reflecting light back into the driver's eyes. Fog lights are designed for use in dense fog situations, and emergency lights are not suitable for regular driving conditions.

    Which of the following statements about blind spots is true?

    • A.

      They are eliminated if you have one outside mirror on each side of vehicle.

    • B.

      Blind spots can be checked by looking in your rear view mirrors.

    • C.

      Certain cars do not have blind spots.

    • D.

      Large trucks have bigger blind spots than passenger vehicles.

    Correct Answer
    D. Large trucks have bigger blind spots than passenger vehicles.
    Explanation
    Large trucks have bigger blind spots than passenger vehicles. This is because trucks have larger dimensions and longer bodies, resulting in larger areas around the vehicle that cannot be directly seen by the driver. These blind spots can be especially dangerous when changing lanes or making turns, as other vehicles may be hidden from view. Therefore, it is important for truck drivers to be extra cautious and use additional mirrors or cameras to minimize blind spots and ensure the safety of themselves and other road users.
