Uninsured Vehicles in California

About three million vehicles on California’s roadways are uninsured or inadequately insured. These uninsured drivers typically have the most unreliable and unsafe cars. It is likely that they are also the least careful drivers. Studies have shown that the more uninsured drivers there are on the road, the more fatal car crashes.

Uninsured drivers are a problem. They cost other drivers billions of dollars each year. If only 30 percent of all uninsured California drivers purchased insurance, California drivers could save $250 million in costs

Two Steps to Large Insurance Savings

A new law in 2013 provided access to licenses for 1.4 million non-citizen individuals in California. Unlicensed immigrants previously lacked insurance because they could not buy coverage when they did not have a valid license.

January 1, 2015, a new law will go into effect. It will help more low-income drivers to purchase affordable automobile insurance. The new law expands and enhances California’s current Low-Cost Automobile Insurance Program (CLCA).

It is believed that a substantial number of the 1.4 million non-citizens will benefit from the new law. The change can potentially also reduce insurance rates for everyone.

Senate Bill 1273

Among others, the Senate Bill (1273) was supported by Personal Insurance Federation of California, State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company, and United Farmworkers of America.

Three Feet for Safety Act Goes into Effect in California

Starting September 16, 2014, California joins the 25 other states that already require motorists to keep a minimum distance when passing a bicyclist.

The new California Act states that you must keep at least three feet between any part of the motor vehicle and any part of the bicycle or its operator. If traffic or roadway conditions make it impossible to keep the three-feet distance, you must slow to a speed that is reasonable and prudent. You may pass only when doing so do not endanger the safety of the bicyclist.

A violation of this Act may cost you $35. If you violate the law and cause bodily injury to a bicyclist, you will be fined $220.

Other States with Passing Laws

The following states have enacted three-feet passing laws: Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Virginia, Utah, West Virginia and Wisconsin. So has the District of Columbia.

Pennsylvania has a four-feet passing law.

Several other states have general laws which states that motorists must pass bicyclists at a safe distance and speed, without specifying the distance.

Always Be Patient

On a two lane road, you should always avoid being next to the bicyclist at the same time as oncoming traffic is at the same location. Keep well back and wait until it is safe to pass.

If you are too close and the bicyclist must brake or move away from the right side of a lane, you could run them over.

Florida Highway

International Trend

Right now, there is an international trend in lower car insurance premiums. In Great Britain premiums have fallen sharply. Even most states in U.S. see lower costs.

The reason? Safer cars and lower costs for insurance companies.

Averages in U.S.

National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) uses a five-year running average of annual premium costs. This year’s data shows that premiums have declined in most states. Some states, as much as 2 to 4 percent. Drivers with good records and modestly priced cars can benefit even more from this trend. Oklahoma is the only state where the average increased by more than 1 percent.

Premiums vary greatly between states. An annual car insurance policy in Washington, D.C., as an example, is twice as expensive as the average premium in Iowa. A car owner in Florida pays 27 percent more than the average U.S. vehicle owner.

School bus loading children

Stop for a Stopped School Bus

All states have laws requiring a driver to stop for a stopped school bus with flashing red lights. Unfortunately, the laws differ slightly from state to state.

The typical state law requires you to stop when meeting or overtaking a school bus from either direction. You must stop before reaching the bus and you must remain stopped until such school bus resumes motion or the flashing red lights are no longer activated. Remember, red lights are turned on whenever a school bus is stopped on the highway for the purpose of receiving or discharging school children. Even if you cannot see any children, you must remain stopped.

When are you Allowed to Pass?

You may be allowed to proceed with care when meeting a school bus which is on a different roadway. The definition of a different roadway varies. You may also be allowed to proceed on highways with limited access when the bus has stopped in a loading zone where pedestrians are not permitted to cross the roadway.

Study the Rules in Your State

Make sure you know the laws in your state and any state you plan to visit. Penalties for passing a stopped school bus are often severe. Watch for the flashing lights and stop arms on school buses. Always obey crossing guard instructions, as well as speed restrictions. Focus on traffic and be aware of your surroundings. Do not use your cell phone in a school zone. It may distract you and may be against the law.

Auto insurance

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.

Good Student

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.

Good Records

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.

Safe Car

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.



Studying - copyright: www.123rf.com


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.

The Manual

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.

The Questions

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.
