#1. When you see a sign with this shape and color, you must:

A stop sign means you must come to a complete stop. Give the right-of-way to pedestrians and to all cross traffic before moving again.

Continue

#2. When approaching an intersection to make a left turn and oncoming traffic prevents you from making an immediate turn, you should:

Slow down and stop if necessary. If you are turning left, make sure there are no vehicles or pedestrians blocking your path. You do not want to be caught waiting for a path to clear while being stuck across a lane that has an oncoming vehicle moving in your direction.

Continue

#3. It can be dangerous to leave a motor running in a garage because of:

Cars produce carbon monoxide, a deadly odorless and colorless gas. Fumes from a leaky exhaust system can cause death in a very short time. Never run the motor in your garage, or sit in the car with the motor running, without opening a window.

Continue

#4. Where should you stop your vehicle when there is no stop line or crosswalk?

When required to stop because of a sign or signal, a driver must stop before the vehicle reaches the stop line, or if there is one, a crosswalk. If there is no crosswalk and no stop line, a driver must stop at the point nearest the intersecting roadway where the driver has a view of approaching traffic before entering the intersection.

Continue

#5. The four-sided diamond shape is used for which road signs?

General warning signs are yellow with black lettering or symbols and most are diamond shaped. They warn you of specific road conditions and dangers ahead.

Continue

#6. A shared center lane for turning can be used:

Shared center lanes are reserved for making left turns and can be used by vehicles traveling in either direction.

Lanes are marked on each side by solid yellow and dashed yellow lines.

In Arkansas it is permissible for a vehicle making a left turn from an intersecting street or driveway to utilize a center left turn lane as part of the maneuver to gain access or merge into traffic lanes. It is not permissible to use the center left turn lane as an acceleration lane.

Continue

#7. When an emergency vehicle with flashing red or blue lights and activated siren approaches, you must:

Pull over to the right edge of the road, or as near to the right as possible, when you see or hear an emergency vehicle approaching from any direction.

If you are in an intersection, drive through the intersection before you pull over.

Continue

#8. If gates rise at a railroad crossing, but the red light is still flashing, you should:

Never drive around the gates. It is dangerous and against the law.

Continue

#9. What does this sign mean?

Two-way traffic ahead. Also used to indicate that you are on a two-way road.

Continue

#10. Trucks and buses have:

A truck’s blind spots, the no-zone, are danger spots because truck drivers cannot see vehicles in these areas.

Typically, the larger the vehicle, the larger the blind spots.

The easiest way to avoid lingering in the no-zone is to look for the truck driver’s reflection in the side mirror. If you cannot see the driver, you are in the truck driver’s blind spot.

Continue

#11. What should you do if you are involved in a traffic crash and someone is injured?

If any person is injured or killed, call for help. Make sure police are notified with a precise location of the crash scene and provide to the dispatchers any cautionary information such as gas spills, fire or downed electric lines.

Do not move the injured unless they are trapped inside a burning vehicle or other immediate form of danger.

Continue

#12. If you see this sign in front of you, it tells you that:

Do not enter.

The sign marks a one-way roadway with traffic coming against you. You must not enter from the direction you are traveling.

Remember, this is a square sign with a white horizontal line inside a red ball. The sign is not circular.

Continue

#13. Which of the following is true about driving on a wet roadway?

When it is raining or the road is wet, most tires have good traction up to about 35 mph. However, as you move faster, your tires will start to ride upon the water, much like water skis. This is called hydroplaning.

In a heavy rain, your tires can lose all traction with the road at around 50 mph. Bald or badly worn tires will lose traction at much lower speed. The best way to keep from hydroplaning is to drive slower in the rain, or when the road is wet.

Continue

#14. The road surface of a bridge may be dangerous in winter because it may remain icy after the rest of the roadway is clear.

Be very careful on bridges. The road on both sides of the bridge may be ice-free. However, cold air blowing under the bridge quickly freezes water, making icy patches a real problem.

The slippery when wet warning sign is often located near bridges and overpasses.

Continue

#15. When changing lanes you should always check your mirrors and look over your shoulder.

When changing lanes, you should:

  • Look in your rear-view and side mirrors. Make sure there are no vehicles in the lane you want to enter and make sure no one is about to pass you.
  • Look over your shoulder in the direction you plan to move. Your rearview and side mirrors will not allow you to see vehicles in your blind spots.
Continue

#16. Signaling well ahead of a turn helps other drivers to understand your intentions and gives you the right-of-way:

You must warn others when you are going to change direction or slow down. This will give them time to react if needed, or at least not to be surprised by what you do. It does, however, not give you the right-of-way.

Continue

#17. A learner's license allows you to drive unsupervised:

You may drive only when accompanied in the front passenger seat by a licensed driver who is age 21 or older.

Continue

#18. A flashing yellow light means:

A flashing yellow traffic signal light indicates to proceed with caution.

Continue

#19. What is true about giving your horn a sharp blast?

Never use your horn to encourage someone to drive faster or get out of the way.

Continue

#20. When you park your car on any hill:

Drivers are responsible for making sure that their vehicle is not a hazard when it is parked. Always set your parking brake when you park. Leave the vehicle in gear if it has a manual transmission or in park if it has an automatic transmission.

Continue

#21. Because motorcycles are smaller than cars:

The small profile of the motorcycle may make it appear farther away and traveling slower than it actually is. Drivers need to take a second look, and then a third. Always make a visual check (mirrors, too) of blind spots before entering or leaving a lane of traffic and at intersections. Intersections are the most likely places for car/motorcycle crash to occur. This usually is the result of a car driver NOT SEEING the motorcycle and turning into the motorcycle’s path.

Continue

#22. A pedestrian is crossing your lane at an intersection, but there is no marked crosswalk. You should:

You must yield to pedestrians in or about to enter a crosswalk. Always yield to pedestrians before making a turn.

Continue

#23. Through many work zones, the speed limits may be reduced and lane usage could be restricted for safety purposes.

Through many work zones, the speed limits may be reduced and lane usage could be restricted for safety purposes.

Continue

#24. If you are traveling in the left lane on a multi-lane road and someone comes up behind you at a faster speed, you should:

If you are traveling in the left lane and someone comes up behind you at a faster speed, move one lane to your right. Do not tie up traffic in the left lane.

On multi-lane roads, the left-most lane is intended to be used to pass slower vehicles. If you move slower than the traffic flow or are being followed too closely and there is a right lane, move over to the right.

Continue

#25. Which is true about alcohol?

Alcohol is involved in approximately 38 percent of the traffic crashes in which someone is killed. If you drink alcohol, even a little, your chances of being in a crash are much greater than if you did not drink any alcohol.

Understand the Arkansas Graduated Driver License Program

Like all states, Arkansas has a graduated driver license program.

The purpose of the graduated driver license program is to allow drivers to gradually become safe and experienced drivers with a step-by-step process.

1  First step – Instruction Permit

As a first step, Arkansas state police always issues an instruction permit. The permit allows a new driver practice driving together with a supervising driver.

To apply for an instruction permit, you must be at least 14 years old. When your application is accepted, you must pass the knowledge exam and vision test to receive your instruction permit.

With an instruction permit you may practice driving with a licensed driver 21 years or older. The supervising driver must always sit beside you in a front seat.

The permit is valid for one year and cannot be extended.

If you are under 16 years and pass the skills test, you may proceed to step 2 and get your first learner’s license.

2  Step 2 – Learner’s License

Arkansas state police issues a learner’s license after you have passed the skills test and if you are between 14 and 16 years old.

When you hold a learner’s license, you must always be accompanied by a licensed driver who is at least 21 years old and all passengers must wear seat belts.

The Learner’s License is restricted to supervised driving until your 16th birthday AND until six months of supervised driving is completed.

3  Step 3 – Intermediate License

You may get an intermediate license if you have passed all tests, have held the instruction permit, and are between 16 and 18 years old.

The intermediate license is also restricted to supervised driving unless the six-month period with supervised driving has already been met when the applicant turns 16.

If the intermediate license is restricted to supervised driving, you must be accompanied by a licensed driver who is at least 21 years old until the period of six months is complete.

After the six-month period, you may drive alone.

With an intermediate driver’s license, you may, however, not drive alone between the hours of 11:00 pm and 4:00 am unless you are driving to and from school activity, church activity, job, or in an emergency.

There is also a passenger restriction when you drive alone. You cannot drive with more than one unrelated minor passenger. An unrelated minor passenger is a person under 21 years old who is not a sibling, step-sibling, or a child who lives in the same household as the driver.

4  Step 4 – Unrestricted Class D License

The Class D license is a non-restricted license issued to persons 18 years or older.

Before you can get an unrestricted license, you must have held a valid Instruction Permit indicating a completion of the knowledge exam, vision, and skills test.

You must also be free of serious accident and conviction of a serious traffic violation for at least 12 months prior to application.




FAQ – Arkansas Graduated Driver License Program

The Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL) law helps provide a safe environment for young drivers by placing strategic restrictions on when and with whom they may drive. The process of receiving a teen driver license contains three levels: learner's license, intermediate license, and unrestricted/regular driver license.

A learner's license is issued to teens between 14 and 16 years old. With a learner's license, a teenager must always drive with a supervising adult. The intermediate license allows a teenager to drive alone, but with a curfew between 11:00 pm and 4:00. With the intermediate license they are also restricted from having more than one unrelated passenger under 21 years.

The use of a cell phone, whether it is talking or texting, is prohibited by law except for an emergency.

No more than one unrelated minor passenger is allowed, unless you are accompanied by a licensed driver. Unrelated minor passenger is a person under 21 years old who is not a sibling, step-sibling, or a child who lives in the same household as you.

The permit allows you to practice driving with a supervising driver who is at lest 21 years old and sits beside you in the front seat.

When you are 18 years old and have passed the skills test, Arkansas state police can issue a Class D Driver License without restrictions.

No, a driver education course is not mandatory in Arkansas. You must, however, pass a knowledge test before the state police issues a learner's permit and teens must practice driving for at least six months before they can be eligible for a license.
