1. You can drive off the road to pass another vehicle:

Explanation
You may never drive off the paved or main-traveled portion of the road and onto the shoulder to pass another vehicle.

2. If pedestrians are illegally crossing in the middle of the street instead of in a crosswalk, you:

Explanation
You must yield to pedestrians at all times. If the pedestrians are jaywalking or crossing the street where they should not be, you must still stop for them.

3. Continuous hard braking on ice and snow often:

Explanation
Continuous hard braking on snow and ice can result in the locking of the front brake, causing a loss of steering. To avoid the need for excessive braking, make sure to maintain an appropriate speed for conditions.

4. If a vehicle using high beams comes toward you, you should look toward ____ of the road.

Explanation
If a vehicle approaching you is using its high beams and fails to dim them, you should glance toward the right side of the road. This will keep you from being blinded by the other vehicle’s headlights and will allow you to see well enough to stay on your course until the vehicle passes.

5. While driving, your wheels slip off the edge of the road. You should:

Explanation
If your vehicle begins to leave the road, continue to drive with the wheels off the pavement and reduce your speed by gently applying the brakes. When at a safe speed, turn the steering wheel to return to the pavement. Do not attempt to force your vehicle back onto the pavement by sharply turning the steering wheel.

6. Drivers are not required to yield to pedestrians in a crosswalk.

Explanation
A driver must come to a complete stop and yield when a pedestrian is in a marked crosswalk. A driver must also yield to a pedestrian who is in an unmarked crosswalk on the driver’s side of the roadway when there are no traffic control signals.

7. What does a lane use control signal displaying a solid yellow X above a reversible lane indicate?

Explanation
Lane use control signals are used when the direction of the flow of traffic in a specific lane changes throughout the day. They are used to show which lanes of traffic are open and closed, as well as to show if toll booths are open or closed. When a lane control signal contains a solid yellow X, drivers should clear the indicated lane, as the lane signal is about to change to a red X.

8. It is very foggy. You should slow down and:

Explanation
Use your low beams when driving in fog, snow, rain, or mist. Light from high beams will reflect off of precipitation, causing a glare and making it even more difficult to see. Some vehicles are equipped with fog lights that should be used in addition to low beam headlights.
