Unless you understand all the information, you are not likely to pass the knowledge and skills tests.

A Few Areas to Focus on for Your Montana Written Test

Montana MVD has issued the following quick reminder with statements that you should know and understand to pass the knowledge test and get your learner’s permit. It is likely that several of them will appear on your test.

1. A yellow unbroken line on the right-hand side of the center line means a no-passing zone.

2. When parking on a hill with a curb, your front wheels should be turned as follows:
– Downhill: toward the curb
– Uphill: away from the curb

3. When your car starts to skid:
– Look where you want to go
– Ease off the gas pedal
– Don’t apply the brakes
– Steer where you want to go

4. When two vehicles approach an intersection without traffic signals at the same time, the driver on the left must yield the right of way to the driver on the right.

5. When preparing for a right turn, signal for at least 100 feet, check traffic to the rear and drive in the right-hand lane. Signal 300 feet in rural areas.

6. It is unlawful to park:
– On a sidewalk or bridge
– Closer than 20 feet to a crosswalk at an intersection
– Closer than 30 feet to a stop sign, traffic light or flashing beacon
– Closer than 15 feet to a fire hydrant
– Closer than 20 feet to a fire station
– In front of the entrance to an alley or private driveway
– In any area reserved for disabled parking unless you are disabled.

7. In school zones slow to 20 mph or other posted speed limit. Watch for children at all times

8. Headlights must be turned on:
– From one half hour after sunset to one half hour before sunrise
– Anytime weather conditions make it hard to see
– When part of a funeral line
It is safest to drive with headlights on day and night so other drivers can see your vehicle.

9. When you hear the siren of an emergency vehicle you should pull over to the right and stop.

10. Passing on the right is permitted only:
– When the roadway is wide enough for two cars to move legally in the same direction; and
– When the car ahead is making a left turn, providing you remain on the paved part of the highway.
