C-, but in my state, they don`t ask about percentages of accidents or alcohol involved accidents. And our school zones are all posted at 15 mph.

Of course, these questions don`t really tell whether you`re a good driver or not. In order to do that, the questions would have to go like this:

1. When turning left at a stoplight, do you pull out into the intersection in case there`s no break in oncoming traffic and go when the light turns yellow, ensuring that at least one car get through, or do you just sit there through several cycles?

2. When approaching an intersection with a stoplight and 2 or more lanes, do you stay in the right lane even though you`re going straight, or do you merge over one lane so people behind you turning right don`t have to wait for the light to turn green?

3. When driving in the left lane on the interstate, do you figure "well, I`m going 5 miles over the speed limit and that`s fast enough, so I don`t have to merge when somebody comes up behind me." Or do you merge like a decent sane human being?

This also depends on which state your in. In California, following distance is 300 feet and the speed limit in school zones is 25mph.

On a two-lane, two-way road you may pass another vehicle when:

None of the answers applied! Unless they`re talking about a two-lane road with just reflectors as opposed to lines. I thought it went like this:

fully solid - no passing
fully dotted - passing when it`s clear, unless a sign says otherwise
dotted on your side, solid on the other - you can`t pass, the other side can, when clear. (vice versus)

someone correct me if i`m wrong.

i could be wrong on the exact time school zones go from 25 to 35..but its in that ballpark

yes..quite a few of these are different from state to state.
ky does`nt even require you to know about alcohol since your not supposed to have any at all..and school zones are always 25 unless it is one hour prior and post opening/closing or just not in session.

Only 50% :(

Lucky I`ve never studied for it or anything since I can`t drive for another year.

Also, I got a few wrong because of the measurement differences. For example, I know the speed limit in a school zone here in Australia is 40km/h. I have no idea how many mp/h that is..

The question about the low beams turning off...Pull over, turn on your hazard lights, find your fuse box and check the damn fuse. It`s either burnt out or loose. You can push it back in or change it out with the spare that is clipped in the box. That is the most common reason that BOTH lights go out at once. After that your into messing with relays and checking for burnt wires. You just have to know SOMETHING about cars before you try not to kill yourself driving one. (Yes, I`m a girl. Yes, I like cars. Old cars.)

A lot of the questions are wrong if you are in Arizona. Like the speed limit in a school zone. The answer they have is 20 but in Phoenix it`s 25. Heck some areas it`s 35! Dumb test. All I know is that on the real test I got a 92%. 8-)

Yes if your low beams stop working on a bridge you should STOP until somebody can help you. Why would you even think of using the high beams they`re not meant to shine light...

"You are driving at night when your low-beam headlights stop working. What should you do?

Pull off the road and turn on your emergency flashers.

Really? And then what, just sit their till dawn?"

Then call a towing service on your cellphone.

Big load of crap.

On multiple-laned roads, the far left lane is used only for:

Women. (At least that`s the way it works around here.)

About what percentage of collisions involve alcohol?

I thought this was about rules, not trivia.

When do pedestrians have the right of way?

The law varies by state.

+++++

You may not park within how many feet of a stop sign?

The law varies by state.

bumbleBB: ABS helps with steering because it stops your wheels from locking up

TopperHey:ABS does help steering, as it keeps the wheels turning so you can roll them in a certain direction.

what I heard from both of you is one of the answers, ABS is used to help make a vehicle stop quicker, more traction helps slow vehicle down. have you ever tried to turn while abs is engaging to help your braking, you skid. and no, we don`t have ice.

as for the "left lane" law:
http://www.mit.edu/~jfc/right.html

left lane in Texas is just another lane, and so in many other states as well.

I`ve lived in OR,MA,ME,MI,and WA. And moved back and forth between a few of those states, several times.
At this point I would love to say:
Having to retake the drivers test every damn time you want to switch your licence over to a new state is utter BS. >:(

Half those question don`t follow DoT regulations, and those are the guy and gals that administer the driving tests; not some poo, money grubbing, bottom feeding, greedy insurance agency/industry.

By the I got 50%, half the "test" is spot on, the rest are just asking for someone to be fined or hurt.

Note: What I meant to say was "You are not allowed to follow a firetruck or other emergency vehicle, when it`s lights are flashing/siren is sounding." You also aren`t allowed onto the block the firetruck has stopped on for the emergency, without direction of an official directing traffic.

Anti-lock brakes quite clearly says "If you have them, read your user manual to be sure you know how to use them". THAT was helpful!!

So... couldn`t find reference to the `what to do if a big truck wants over`.. can only guess that it is a common sense question, but we see here how often people use THAT.

The flashing red means to treat it as a stop sign, so none of the answers ACTUALLY fit. But `Stop` is close enough, I suppose.

30 ft is the rule here, it looks like... so my answer wasn`t even an option. 25 is close, but would still get ME a ticket.

There was no reference on what to do should your low beams stop working, so again I guess it wanted common sense? Although personally I would want to turn on my high beams, and get somewhere safe before I pulled over.

I skipped the `hand down` pic, because that is pretty universal, and I didn`t bother looking it up. But for accuracy I went ahead and looked. I was right. Slow or Stop :)

Done, sorry for wasting your time

I`m sorry, but quite a few of those questions were not on my drivers test, nor taught to me in my drivers ed class. The percentage question is BS, because that can change every year, if you actually look at the data. The same with `single biggest contributor`, it has the ability to change.

As an added note, after going through the test once on my own I opened the TN Study Guide/Handbook to answer further questions.. Apparently you just aren`t allowed to `follow` a firetruck or other emergency vehicle. No `so many feet behind it` anywhere evident.

It had no set `speed limit` for school zones, only to say there are heavy fines and to follow the directions on the Signs posted (while lights are flashing, blah speed limit... which around here is USUALLY 25, not 20).

Right of Way with Pedestrians appears to be pretty much, if they are there, they get to go. Intersections, with and without lights, kids playing in the street, blind people crossing ANYWHERE... and so on.

continued rant

vapour13- yes pedestrians always have the right of way. if you hit one, you are usually at fault, unless another witness can proved that the guy jumped out of nowhere.

when in parking lots, you always need to watch out for them and look where your car is going eg. if you are going backwards, look behind you, not in your mirrors :-)

Ikeray isn`t wrong but he isn`t right either, abs prevents the wheels from spinning when on ice and brakes does not lock unless they are frozen stuck which is almost impossible to happen.
i know this because my teacher bashed it (metaphorically speaking) into my head

I was going to say the same thing about ABS. This test counts not I would have only missed 2 had it not been for those two questions. In our state school zone speed limit is 15 unless otherwise posted.

IkeRay you`re a moron. ABS helps with steering because it stops your wheels from locking up and therefor losing traction, which you need to steer you car. I don`t blame you for your stupidity on that one though because you`re from texas and don`t drive on ice. The rest of the stupid that spewed from you is your own creation though.

ALB (or ABS in most cars) don`t help steering. I don`t care what this test says, ABS only help shorten stopping distances, Traction Control helps with steering.

"left lane on multiple lanes road for overtaking only"
not in Texas

I don`t care about the alcohol ones (collisions is probably a made up statistic anyways) because I don`t drive with any alcohol in my body.

I got a 78% but add in at least 2 of those 4 and I get well into the 80`s.

finally, when a truck goes to pass you, you speed up and shoot him the bird, trucks shouldn`t be passing cars on the road.
