Since you are taking practice tests on this site you will soon have a new driver’s license in your hand. And perhaps a new car? And your first auto-insurance?
Nowadays you can do most things online. You also have smart tools that let you compare things side by side and find the best deals. Often true about cars. A lot of web sites also tell you how to find cheap auto insurance. But do they work?
Well, not so good.
Finding the best auto insurance is actually harder than you would think. Just because a friend or neighbor got a great deal doesn’t mean you will get the same offer.
Instant quotes online, like insweb.com, are nothing more than very rough estimates. Our tests showed differences up to 40% compared to the real premiums.
Not until you have provided your Social Security number and a lot of other information can an insurance agent or a web service calculate the real quote. All of this requires a check-up on your driving record, credit history and other official records.
Now, there is much to be said about how the insurance industry works, but this is what we have to live with.
As long as you study and live with your parent’s, stay on their auto insurance. This will also give you time to get a driving record. Hopefully without accidents or tickets.
If you move from home and need your own insurance, ask for good student discounts, most insurance companies have such discounts.
Your driving record matters. You should of course avoid accidents and tickets. If you get points on your record, ask your local DMV office if you can get rid of them by taking a defensive driving course.
Your credit score also matters. Make sure you know what your credit report says. Correct any errors and make sure you pay all your bills and credit cards on time.
The insurance premium is not all about you. It is also about your car. Check safety ratings and compare the average premiums for different car models. That will give you a fairly good idea about which cars to avoid (usually sports cars) and which ones will lower your premium.
An Agent or Online?
Some say that an agent will get you the lowest price, others argue that buying online direct from a company is better.
If records and other circumstances aren’t straight-forward, you should talk to an agent. An agent can give you a lot of useful advice. Compare the agents offer with what you can get online before you decide.
A lot of people take their knowledge test without being prepared. They think that it is all common sense since they already know how to drive. Others just get nervous, not knowing what to expect.
In fact, two out of three fail their first attempt.
That is why we created this site. We don’t want you to fail; we want you to pass the first time.
Reading the driver’s manual is a must. The test is all about verifying that you have done just that.
Don’t just use your eyes when you are reading. The exact recall of specific words and quotations can have the opposite effect in a test if you don’t read questions carefully. You should the try to see the bigger picture, instead of isolated facts.
Discuss questions with yourself or with others. Why is it this way? Why should you use a two-second or three-second following distance? Why do the seconds matter?
Prepare in Time
Start early and read the manual, but don’t rush through everything at once. Give the manual at least a week or two. The key is to digest everything slowly and carefully. After each chapter, try to summarize what you have read. What is important?
If you created a test, what would you ask?
Being familiar with how the test works is very important. Our tests are based on the way the written tests work in most states. You will be given multiple-choice questions with three or four answers. Only one is correct.
Take practice tests every day until you easily score 90% or more.
Read the question again, because this is where you are most likely to fail.
Some read too much into questions, anxious not to be the victim of a trick question. Others glance directly at the answers and see a familiar phrase that they believe is correct, and don’t look at the question again.
There are no trick questions on the real knowledge test. Questions are usually very simple and straight-forward with clear answers. (The tests on this site are harder!).
The difference between giving a question a quick glance or read it carefully one or two times is not that big! You are usually not in a hurry.
What if you have no clue, should you guess?
You might see a question where you have no clue about the answer. After taking our practice tests, we don’t believe that will happen, but still… What should you do in this situation?
If you can save the question until later, do that (most states allow this)! Otherwise, take a guess. But don’t despair if the answer is wrong, just move forward.
However, do not guess too often. If you have read the manual, you should know the answer. Relax and try to picture yourself with the manual. Surely it was in there somewhere? Think and discuss with yourself. Remembering images often helps.
If you need to guess several times, you are probably not ready for your test. Nothing wrong in that, just prepare better next time.
Reaction Distance is Affected
A study done by Car and Driver Magazine found that driver reaction time was much slower when the driver was texting than when he or she was under the influence of alcohol.
Reaction time was triggered by a red light inside the car. The light alerted drivers when to brake.
A baseline was set by measuring reaction times at 35 mph and 70 mph. Then the reaction times was tested while drivers read a text message aloud. This was followed by a trial with the drivers typing the same message.
Each test was repeated five times, and the slowest reaction time (the time between the activated light and the driver hitting the brakes) was dropped.
- Unimpaired: .54 seconds to brake
- Legally drunk: add 4 feet
- Reading e-mail: add 36 feet
- Sending a text: add 70 feet
Massachusetts bans all texting and web browsing and prevents all cell phone use for teen drivers. But how aware are people about the law? And do they follow the law?
Plymouth Rock Assurance, a leading auto insurance company in Massachusetts and Connecticut, did a Distracted Driving Survey. The survey wanted to get an answer to the questions above.
The majority (80%) were aware of the law, meaning one out of five was not even aware of the law.
Nearly 40% (two out of five) did not follow the law. They still sent text messages while driving.
Going forward, one out of four said that the Safe Driving Law will have no effect on their day-to-day cell phone usage.
More from this survey: Women were more likely to have texted while driving than men, and drivers between the ages of 17 and 44 were more than twice as likely to have texted behind the wheel as drivers over the age of 45.
Sadly, too many people are still checking e-mail or sending a text while behind the wheel, even though it’s as dangerous as drinking and driving.
New and updated practice questions for your South Carolina driver’s license test are now available online at driversprep.com.
Always study the driver’s manual from South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles before you try our free practice questions.
The knowledge test consists of a series of questions about your responsibility as a driver, including knowledge of laws and safe driving practices. You must also know the meaning of standard road signs. All questions are based on the information in the driver’s manual. You can download a free copy from www.scdmvonline.com.
When you think you are ready for the knowledge test, try our free practice questions and aim for at least 90% correct answers. By using our free tests you will probably pass the real knowledge test the first time you try. That is how good our practice tests are.
You can also try the official Driver License Practice Test App. However, all areas covered by the app are also found in our practice tests.
To apply for a beginner’s permit in South Carolina, you must be at least 15 years of age or older. You must provide a birth certificate, social security card or its equivalent, proof of residency, and must pass the vision and knowledge tests. As long as you are under 18 years of age, you must have a parent or legal guardian sign your application.
If you have a valid out-of-state learner’s permit, you can replace it with South Carolina beginner’s permit. The time you held your out-of-state permit also counts toward the 180 day requirement.
If your out-of-state permit has expired, however, you must take the vision and knowledge tests to get the beginner’s permit.
