1. You should drive on the shoulder to pass a car:

Explanation
Passing on the right is permissible only if it is possible to do so without driving off the roadway. Never pass another vehicle on the shoulder because the other driver will not expect you to be there and may pull off the road.

2. How should drivers apply the gas pedal?

Explanation
The acceleration pedal should be pressed slowly and smoothly. Depressing the gas pedal too quickly can cause your wheels to overspin, making it difficult to control your vehicle.

3. This sign means:

illinois-pedestrian crosswalk
Explanation
This sign indicates that there is a pedestrian crosswalk.

4. Signs with orange backgrounds are:

illinois-construction
Explanation
The color orange is used only for construction and maintenance warning signs.

5. Changing from one lane to another is best done:

You should always change lanes gradually and carefully. Only change lanes when necessary. Every lane change increases the possibility of a traffic accident.

Explanation
Drivers must respect and cooperate with all other road users and conform to specific rules in order to maintain order and to avoid crashes. When encountering an aggressive driver, it is safest to just get out of their way. Always avoid competing with other drivers.

7. When passing on the left of a vehicle, it is safe to move back into the right lane:

Explanation
When passing another vehicle on its left, you may move back into the right lane when the headlights of the passed vehicle can be seen in your rearview mirror. Always signal before changing lanes.

8. In which of the following scenarios should your wheels not be pointed straight ahead?

Explanation
While waiting to turn left, keep your wheels pointed straight ahead until it is safe to start your turn. If a vehicle hits you from behind, this will prevent you from veering into oncoming traffic. When parked facing either uphill or downhill, turn the wheels so the vehicle will not roll into traffic if the brakes fail.
