A practice test for the Wyoming drivers license.

• 1.

### What is the speed limit in a school zone?

• A.

20 mph unless otherwise noted

• B.

30 mph unless otherwise noted

• C.

65 mph unless otherwise noted

• D.

75 mph unless otherwise noted

• E.

15 mph unless otherwise noted

A. 20 mph unless otherwise noted
Explanation
The correct answer is 20 mph unless otherwise noted. In most areas, the speed limit in a school zone is reduced to 20 mph to ensure the safety of children and pedestrians. However, there may be certain school zones where a different speed limit is specified, and drivers should follow the posted signs in those cases.

### What is the speed limit in a  business district?

• A.

20 mph unless otherwise noted

• B.

30 mph unless otherwise noted

• C.

65 mph unless otherwise noted

• D.

75 mph unless otherwise noted

• E.

40 mph unless otherwise noted

B. 30 mph unless otherwise noted
Explanation
In a business district, the speed limit is generally set at 30 mph unless there are specific signs indicating otherwise. This means that drivers should not exceed 30 mph unless there is a posted speed limit sign that states a different limit. The speed limit in a business district is typically lower than on other roads to ensure the safety of pedestrians, cyclists, and other vehicles in the area.

Rate this question:

• 3.

### What does this sign mean?

• A.

Stop.

• B.

No entry for non-emergency vehicles.

• C.

No parking on Mondays.

• D.

Yield to the right of way.

D. Yield to the right of way.
Explanation
The sign in question indicates that drivers should yield to the right of way. This means that if there are other vehicles approaching from the right side, drivers must allow those vehicles to proceed first before continuing. Yielding to the right of way helps maintain a smooth flow of traffic and prevents accidents at intersections or areas where multiple roads merge.

Rate this question:

• 4.

### When in heavy fog, which lights do you use?

• A.

Fog lights.

• B.

Low beams.

• C.

High beams.

• D.

Break lights.

B. Low beams.
Explanation
When in heavy fog, it is recommended to use low beams. This is because low beams provide a wider and shorter range of illumination, which helps to reduce the glare caused by the fog. High beams, on the other hand, reflect off the fog and create a blinding effect, making it difficult to see the road ahead. Fog lights are specifically designed to be used in foggy conditions, as they are positioned low on the vehicle and emit a wide, low beam of light. Brake lights are not relevant in this situation as they are used to indicate when the vehicle is slowing down or stopping.

Rate this question:

• 5.

### When can you cross solid yellow lines?

• A.

Only when making a left turn into or from an alley, private road or driveway.

• B.

You can never cross a double sided line.

• C.

When passing another vehicle.

• D.

Only for emergencies.

A. Only when making a left turn into or from an alley, private road or driveway.
Explanation
Solid yellow lines indicate that passing is not allowed. However, there are exceptions to this rule. One of the exceptions is when making a left turn into or from an alley, private road, or driveway. In this situation, you are allowed to cross the solid yellow lines temporarily to complete the turn. It is important to note that you should still exercise caution and yield to any oncoming traffic before crossing the solid yellow lines.

Rate this question:

• 6.

### When driving on an Interstate highway or other highway with two or more lanes, what must you do when you approach an emergency vehicle whos audible or visual signals are in use?

• A.

Immediately stop.

• B.

Merge into the lane farthest from the emergency vehicle, unless told otherwise by a police officer.

• C.

Continue driving as normal.

• D.

Merge into the middle lane, unless told otherwise by a police officer.

B. Merge into the lane farthest from the emergency vehicle, unless told otherwise by a police officer.
Explanation
When approaching an emergency vehicle with audible or visual signals in use on a highway with two or more lanes, it is important to merge into the lane farthest from the emergency vehicle. This allows for a clear path for the emergency vehicle to pass and ensures the safety of both the emergency responders and other drivers on the road. However, if directed otherwise by a police officer, it is important to follow their instructions as they have the authority to override this rule in certain situations.

Rate this question:

• 7.

### When can you pass a school bus with activated lights?

• A.

You can never pass a school bus.

• B.

• C.

Only if there is a physical barrier or separate roadways between your vehicle and a school bus.

• D.

There is no need to stop for a school bus.

C. Only if there is a physical barrier or separate roadways between your vehicle and a school bus.
Explanation
You can only pass a school bus with activated lights if there is a physical barrier or separate roadways between your vehicle and the school bus. This means that there must be some form of physical separation, such as a median or barrier, between your vehicle and the school bus. This is to ensure the safety of the children who may be loading or unloading from the bus. Passing a school bus without a physical barrier or separate roadways is illegal and can result in penalties.

Rate this question:

• 8.

### When you're behind a truck, where should you position yourself?

• A.

Your position on behind a truck is irrelevent.

• B.

Immediately behind the truck.

• C.

Never drive behind a truck, always to the side.

• D.

A car's length behind the truck.

D. A car's length behind the truck.
Explanation
When you're behind a truck, it is recommended to position yourself a car's length behind the truck. This allows for better visibility and gives you enough space to react to any sudden changes or hazards. Being too close to the truck can obstruct your view and increase the risk of a collision, while being too far behind can create a gap that other vehicles may fill, making it difficult for you to merge or change lanes. Therefore, maintaining a safe distance of a car's length behind the truck is the best position.

Rate this question:

• 9.

### When passing a car, how long do you wait before returning back to your lane?

• A.

When you see the car in your rear view mirror.

• B.

2 seconds.

• C.

When you feel it's safe to do so.

• D.

Immediately after passing the car.

A. When you see the car in your rear view mirror.
Explanation
The correct answer is "When you see the car in your rear view mirror." This is because it is important to wait until you can see the car you have just passed in your rear view mirror before returning back to your lane. This ensures that you have given enough space and time for the car you passed to safely adjust its speed and distance. It also helps in avoiding any potential collisions or accidents.

Rate this question:

• 10.

### How far ahead should you look when driving?

• A.

5 - 10 seconds

• B.

10 - 15 seconds

• C.

15 - 20 seconds

• D.

That's not a concern.

B. 10 - 15 seconds
Explanation
When driving, it is important to look ahead to anticipate any potential hazards or obstacles on the road. Looking 10-15 seconds ahead allows drivers to have enough time to react and make necessary adjustments to their driving. This includes scanning for any upcoming intersections, traffic lights, pedestrians, or any other potential dangers. By looking ahead, drivers can maintain a safe distance from other vehicles and have better control over their vehicle, reducing the risk of accidents.

Rate this question:

• 11.

### How long must you signal prior to turning at a high speed?

• A.

4 - 5 seconds

• B.

5 - 6 seconds

• C.

7 - 8 seconds

• D.

Immediately before turning.

A. 4 - 5 seconds
Explanation
When turning at a high speed, it is important to signal in advance to alert other drivers of your intentions. Signaling 4 - 5 seconds prior to turning allows sufficient time for other drivers to react and adjust their speed or position accordingly. This helps to prevent accidents and promotes safe driving practices on the road.

### By how much should you reduce your speed on a wet road?

• A.

Reduce by half.

• B.

Reduce by 5 - 10 mph.

• C.

Reduce by 10 - 20 mph.

• D.

Reduce to a crawl.

B. Reduce by 5 - 10 mph.
Explanation
On a wet road, reducing speed by 5-10 mph is recommended. This is because wet roads are more slippery than dry roads, reducing the tire's grip on the surface. By reducing speed, the driver can have better control over the vehicle and reduce the risk of skidding or losing control. Reducing speed by half or by 10-20 mph may not be necessary in all cases and reducing to a crawl is excessive and impractical in most situations.

Rate this question:

• 13.

### By how much should you reduce your speed on packed snow?

• A.

Reduce by half.

• B.

Reduce to a crawl.

• C.

Reduce by 5 - 10 mph.

• D.

Reduce by 10 - 20 mph.

A. Reduce by half.
Explanation
When driving on packed snow, it is important to reduce your speed to maintain control of the vehicle and avoid accidents. Reducing by half means decreasing your speed by 50%. This is a significant reduction that allows for better traction and maneuverability on slippery surfaces. It is a safer option compared to reducing by a specific number of miles per hour, as the appropriate speed reduction may vary depending on the specific conditions of the road.

### When driving on ice, how much should you reduce your speed?

• A.

Reduce by half.

• B.

Reduce by 5 - 10 mph.

• C.

Reduce to a crawl.

• D.

Reduce by 10 - 20 mph.

C. Reduce to a crawl.
Explanation
When driving on ice, it is important to reduce your speed to a crawl. This is because ice significantly reduces traction, making it difficult to control the vehicle. Driving at a crawl allows you to maintain better control and react more effectively to any potential hazards or loss of traction. Reducing your speed by half or by a specific number of miles per hour may not be sufficient in icy conditions, as it may still be too fast for the limited traction available.

Rate this question:

• 15.

### What is the absolute fastest you should drive on a dark road?

• A.

100 mph

• B.

90 mph

• C.

55 mph

• D.

75 mph

C. 55 mph
Explanation
The absolute fastest you should drive on a dark road is 55 mph. This speed limit is set to ensure safety while driving in low visibility conditions. Driving at higher speeds can increase the risk of accidents, as it becomes more difficult to react to unexpected obstacles or hazards on the road. Additionally, driving at a moderate speed allows for better control of the vehicle and reduces the chances of losing control or skidding on slippery surfaces.
