The road sign test

#1. To avoid getting tired on a long trip, you should:

Highway hypnosis can make you feel sleepy and unaware of the traffic around you. Highway hypnosis is caused by the sameness of the road and traffic. The hum of the wind, tires, and engine also adds to the hypnosis. You can avoid highway hypnosis by constantly moving your eyes, watch the traffic and highway signs around you. You should also stop and take regular breaks. Walk around, get some fresh air and have some, water, coffee, soda or juice. If you are really sleepy, take a nap.


#2. You should be especially alert for deer on the road:

Highest-risk periods are from sunset to midnight and the hours shortly before and after sunrise (dusk and dawn).


#3. When you approach a railroad crossing without warning signals, stop signs or crossing gates:

Slow down, look for a train, and be ready to stop. Never try to beat a train across the tracks. A white, X-shaped sign or crossbuck is located at the railroad crossing. This sign has the same meaning as a yield sign. You must yield to all trains at crossings.


#4. Who has always the right-of-way on Missouri roads?

The law says who must yield the right-of-way, it does not give anyone the right-of-way. You must do everything you can to prevent striking a pedestrian or another vehicle, regardless of the circumstances.


#5. When it is raining or the road is wet, most tires have good traction up to about:

When it is raining or the road is wet, most tires have good traction up to about 35 mph. However, as you go faster, your tires may ride on the water rather than the pavement. This is known as hydroplaning and it refers to loss of traction and control. In a severe rainstorm, the tires can lose all contact with the road at 55 mph.


#6. When you park headed uphill and there is a curb, you should turn your front wheels:

Headed uphill, turn your front wheels away from the curb (toward the travel lane) and let your vehicle roll back a few inches. The curb will stop the car from rolling anywhere.

Remember, when you park on a hill, the general rule is to turn your wheels sharply towards the side of the road or curb. This way, if your vehicle starts to roll downhill, it will roll away from traffic. However, when headed uphill at a curb, you should turn the front wheels in the opposite direction, away from the curb and towards the road.


#7. This hand signal means:

Left turn – left arm extended horizontally out of open window.


#8. Good driving requires you to look:

Good driving requires you to be observant and aware of your surroundings. You must look down the road, to the sides, and behind your vehicle. Be alert for unexpected events.


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

Beware of carbon monoxide poisoning. Cars produce carbon monoxide which is deadly gas. Remember, the gas has no smell, taste or color.

Do not:

  • Leave the motor running in a garage.
  • Leave vents open when following closely behind another car.
  • Leave the motor running and the windows closed while the car is parked.
  • Drive with a defective muffler or exhaust system.
  • Use the heater or air conditioner in a parked car with the windows closed.

#10. The Department adds points to your driving record:

When you are convicted of a traffic violation, while your vehicle was in motion, the Department receives notice and adds points to your driving record. This isn’t like a football or basketball game – you don’t want these points.


#11. Which is true about a center left turn lane?

Enter this lane when preparing to slow down or stop before making a left turn from the main roadway. If not prohibited by other signs, you may also make a U-turn.


#12. You can use your horn in the following situations EXCEPT:

Do not use your horn unless you have to. Needless use of your horn may distract other drivers and cause a traffic crash. There is only one reason to use your horn: to warn other drivers. Your horn should not be used as a display of anger or frustration. Unless there is a real danger, don’t honk your horn around blind pedestrians, bicyclists, horses or horse-drawn vehicles.


#13. Unless otherwise posted, the legal speed limit on interstate highways, freeways or expressways within urbanized areas is:

Unless posted speed limits direct otherwise, the speed limit on interstate highways, freeways or expressways within urbanized areas is 60 mph.


#14. Rear-end crashes are caused by:

Rear-end crashes are very common. They are caused by drivers who follow too closely and cannot stop in time when the vehicle ahead suddenly stops.


#15. If there is enough room for two vehicles on a two-way road with unmarked lanes, you may pass another vehicle to the right:

You may overtake and pass to the right of another vehicle only under the following conditions:

  • When the vehicle overtaken is making or about to make a left turn.
  • Upon a city street with unobstructed pavement of sufficient width for two or more lines of vehicles in each direction.
  • Upon a one-way street.
  • Upon any highway outside of a city with unobstructed pavement of sufficient width and clearly marked for four or more lanes of traffic.

#16. When a traffic signal is showing a steady red light:

A red light tells you to stop. After making a complete stop, and unless otherwise posted, you may turn right on a red light if the way is clear of pedestrians and traffic.


#17. Which is true about swinging wide to the left before making a right-hand turn?

On right turns, avoid swinging wide to the left before making the turn. If you swing wide, the driver behind you may think you are changing lanes or going to turn left and may try to pass you on the right. If you swing wide as you complete the turn, drivers who are in the far lane will not expect to see you there.


#18. Stopping suddenly or braking quickly:

Be alert so that you know well ahead of time when you will have to stop. Stopping suddenly is dangerous. Braking quickly could cause you to lose control of your vehicle. You also make it harder for drivers behind you to stop without hitting you. Try to avoid panic stops by seeing events well in advance. By slowing down or changing lanes, you may not have to stop at all, and if you do, it can be a more gradual and safer stop.


#19. When a vehicle approaching head-on in your lane, you should do the following, except:

Never swing over into the left lane.

Slow down. Use your horn to attract attention and keep to the right.

This question asked what you should not do.


#20. A second offense of speeding or passing in a work zone carries an additional fine of at least:

If you are caught speeding or passing in a construction zone or work zone on Missouri state roadways, you could be fined a minimum of $250 for the first offense and a minimum of $300 for a second or subsequent offense in addition to any other fine authorized by law.


#21. When driving beside a motorcycle, you should:

When you are passing, give motorcycles a full lane width. Do not squeeze past these road users.


#22. Which is the second most cited drug in car crashes?

Marijuana is the second most cited drug in car crashes, after alcohol.


#23. Which of the following is NOT considered safe driving on an interstate system?

Changing lanes without signaling is not considered safe driving.

Remember, giving an appropriate signal is required by law.


#24. When a stop line is present at a stop sign, drivers must:

You must stop at the stop line if one is present even if it is located past the stop sign. If there is no stop line, stop before the crosswalk. If there is no stop line or crosswalk, stop before entering the intersection. Look both ways, and then proceed when it is safe.


#25. Which is the best advice if you encounter an aggressive driver on the road?

Stay out of the way. Remain calm and do not react with similar behavior.

You must take the complete four-part driver examination if:

  You are a new driver.

  You have a license that is expired more than six months.

If you let your Missouri driver license expire more than 184 days, you must take all tests again.

The Official Written Test

The written test will verify your knowledge on Missouri traffic laws and methods of driving.

The test is not an open book test. Cheating, or using or attempting to use any recording, photographic, or two-way communicating device during the test may be considered fraud. Fraud is a Class “A” misdemeanor that may result in the loss of your driving privilege for up to one year.

The examination is not timed, so don’t rush through your questions.

You take your test at a driver examination station. Missouri does not offer online testing from home.

Missouri Graduated Licensing Program

All first-time drivers between 15 and 18 years must complete a period of driving with a licensed driver (instruction permit), and restricted driving (intermediate license), before getting a full driver license.

When you practice driving, you must always carry the permit with you, seat belts must be worn by the driver and all passengers, and the use of a hand-held electronic wireless communication device for sending, reading, or writing a text or electronic message is strictly prohibited.

  Pass the road skills test.

With a valid intermediate license you may drive without supervision. The license, however, comes with passenger restrictions and a night curfew.

  • During the first 6 months, you cannot drive with more than one passenger who is under 19 years old and who is not a member of your immediate family.
  • After the first 6 months, you cannot drive with more than three passengers who are under 19 years old and who are not members of your immediate family
