1.

When is reversing permitted on freeways?

Answer: Never: reversing is always prohibited on freeways.
Explanation:
Reversing is never permitted on freeways. This is because freeways are designed for high-speed traffic and reversing can be extremely dangerous. Reversing on a freeway can cause accidents and disrupt the flow of traffic, so it is strictly prohibited. Activating hazard lights or backing up slowly does not change this rule.
2.

What should you do when changing lanes?

Answer: Check your mirrors, check your blind zone, signal, and proceed when safe to do so.
Explanation:
When changing lanes, it is important to ensure the safety of yourself and other drivers on the road. Checking your mirrors allows you to be aware of the surrounding vehicles and their positions, while checking your blind zone helps you identify any vehicles that may not be visible in your mirrors. Signaling indicates your intention to change lanes, alerting other drivers. Finally, proceeding when safe to do so ensures that you have assessed the situation and have enough space to safely merge into the desired lane.
3.

If you get angry or upset before driving, you should:

Answer: Calm down before you drive.
Explanation:
It is important to calm down before driving because getting behind the wheel while angry or upset can impair your judgment and reaction time, increasing the risk of accidents. Taking the time to calm down allows you to regain focus and concentration, ensuring that you can drive safely and responsibly.
4.

When exiting from a highway, slow down:

Answer: After entering the deceleration lane
Explanation:
When exiting from a highway, it is important to slow down after entering the deceleration lane. The deceleration lane is specifically designed to allow drivers to safely reduce their speed before exiting the highway. By slowing down after entering this lane, drivers can maintain a smooth flow of traffic and avoid any sudden braking or potential accidents. Slowing down before reaching the deceleration lane or before activating the signal may disrupt the flow of traffic and cause confusion for other drivers. Additionally, slowing down only if there is traffic behind is not a safe practice as it is important to adjust speed according to the road conditions and not just the presence of other vehicles.
5.

What is the meaning of a white diamond marking in a lane?

Answer: The lane is reserved for specific vehicles.
Explanation:
A white diamond marking in a lane indicates that the lane is reserved for specific vehicles. This means that only certain types of vehicles are allowed to use this lane, while others are prohibited from entering it. The purpose of this marking is to ensure the smooth flow of traffic and to designate a lane specifically for the designated vehicles.
6.

Which of these things should the driver do before he takes the left turn?

Answer: Yield to oncoming traffic and pedestrians and wait for a safe gap.
Explanation:
Before making a left turn, a driver should always yield to oncoming traffic and pedestrians and wait for a safe gap. This is a fundamental rule of road safety and is designed to prevent accidents and ensure the safety of all road users. Signaling to drivers behind is important as well to indicate your intention to turn, but the most critical step is yielding to oncoming traffic to avoid collisions.
7.

If feeling tired while driving:

Answer: Stop for a rest
Explanation:
When feeling tired while driving, the best course of action is to stop for a rest. This is because fatigue can impair concentration, reaction time, and decision-making abilities, increasing the risk of accidents. By taking a break and getting some rest, the driver can rejuvenate and reduce the chances of falling asleep at the wheel. The other options of turning on the radio, opening the window, or driving with extra care may provide temporary relief but do not address the underlying issue of fatigue and the need for rest.
