8. If you are being tailgated, you should:

Explanation
If you are being tailgated, it is best to allow more room to open up in front of your vehicle. This will help you avoid the need for sudden stops, which could result in the tailgater rear-ending you, and will make it easier for the tailgater to pass. Speeding up may only make things more dangerous by prompting the other driver to continue tailgating you at a higher speed.

9. Rollovers happen when:

Explanation
A rollover happens as a result of a driver changing lanes or turning too quickly.

10. Accelerating roughly is:

Explanation
When accelerating, speed up smoothly and gradually so your vehicle does not jerk. Rough acceleration can cause mechanical damage.

11. To avoid becoming an aggressive driver, you should:

Explanation
To avoid becoming an aggressive driver, begin a trip with realistic expectations of how long the trip will take, allowing extra time for traffic delays. Do not tailgate other vehicles. To avoid upsetting other drivers, do not drive slowly in the left lane and do not gesture at the drivers (even in seemingly minor ways, like shaking your head).

12. When traveling with cargo, you must make sure the cargo is secure:

Explanation
Cargo should be inspected before beginning a trip, within the first 50 miles of the trip, and every three hours or 150 miles traveled. The driver of a truck transporting cargo is responsible for the cargo being safely secured throughout the trip.

13. During the skills test, if making a turn that requires a stop, you should:

Explanation
If you must come to a stop before making a turn during the driving skills test, you should come to a smooth stop behind any stop line, crosswalk, or stop sign. Keep your front wheels aimed straight ahead and do not let your vehicle roll. If stopping behind another vehicle, stop where you are still able to see the rear tires of the vehicle ahead of you.

14. When driving:

Explanation
It is important to communicate your intentions to others on the road. Make sure to signal before turning or changing lanes, even if no other vehicles are nearby.
