#5. In this picture, car A may pass the vehicle ahead:
A dashed yellow line separates lanes of traffic moving in opposite directions. Stay to the right of the line, unless you are passing. When passing, you may cross this line temporarily when it is safe to do so.
#6. What does this sign mean?

Always yield to people crossing the roadway, whether the crosswalk is marked or unmarked. Be especially alert in school zones and high-traffic pedestrian areas.
#9. You must use your headlights:
By law, you must use your headlights at nighttime. Nighttime is from one-half (1/2) hour after sunset to one-half (1/2) hour before sunrise. You must also turn on headlights when, due to insufficient light or unfavorable atmospheric conditions, persons and vehicles on the highway are not clearly discernible at a distance of one thousand (1,000) feet or less.
#10. Compared to daytime, what is true about excessive speed at night?
Excessive speed is more dangerous at night because of limited visibility. Do not overdrive your lights. Adjust your speed so you can stop within the distance you can see.

A steady red light means stop. Come to a complete stop before entering the crosswalk or intersection. You must remain stopped until the light turns green.
After coming to a complete stop, you may turn right on red unless there are signs forbidding the turn.
You may also turn left from a one-way street into a one-way street – unless there are signs forbidding the turn.
When you turn, you must yield to all pedestrians and vehicles using the intersection, including bicycles.
#14. This sign marks:
The chevron sign marks a sharp change in direction. The road ahead curves sharply. Slow down, keep right, and do not pass.
#15. Which road signs have a green background?
Green and white signs give information about directions and distances. Guide signs on expressways show you which lanes to use to get where you want to go.
#16. In this situation (approaching the bicyclist from behind), you should:
When passing a bicyclist, be patient. Do not squeeze the bicyclist off the road. Do not use your horn.
On this road, passing on the other half of the roadway is not allowed (see pavement markings).
#17. When making a left turn on a two-way street with multiple lanes, you should:
Turn from the lane that is closest to the direction you want to go and turn into the lane closest to the one you came from. When making turns, go from one lane to the other as directly as possible without crossing lane lines or interfering with traffic. Once you have completed your turn, you can change to another lane if you need to.
#18. When a school bus with flashing red lights is stopped on your side of a divided highway, you must:
If you approach a school bus with flashing red lights and a red stop sign, it means that children are getting on or off the bus and you must stop. You must stop and remain stopped until:
- the bus has started moving.
- the driver motions for you to proceed.
- the red flashing lights go off and/or the sign is pulled back.
You are not required to stop for a school bus when the bus is on a different roadway, or when the bus is stopped in a loading zone by a controlled-access highway where pedestrians are not allowed to cross.
#19. If a car ahead of you stops suddenly and you cannot stop in time to avoid hitting the car from behind, it is likely that you were:
If you cannot stop in time to avoid hitting that car from behind, you are either breaking the basic speed rule (even if you were driving within the posted speed limit) or following too closely.

State law requires that the driving privilege be revoked for any drug conviction (misdemeanor or felony – does not have to involve a motor vehicle).
#21. This sign (yellow X) tells you that:
Lane-use control signals show how specific lanes of a street or highway should be used. A steady yellow X means that the direction of lane is changing and that you should prepare to change lanes).
#22. Which of these is a safe driving practice?
Do not develop a fixed stare. Check the traffic behind you frequently. This will alert you if someone is moving up too quickly or tailgating you. Check the traffic behind you when changing lanes, backing up, slowing down quickly or driving down a long, steep hill.
#23. A total stopping distance refers to:
There are three steps in stopping your vehicle: perception, reaction, and braking. This is known as the total stopping distance.
#24. A truck's blind spots:
It is important to remember that there are several blind spots in which a truck driver cannot see other vehicles. Trucks have bigger blind spots than most passenger vehicles. Longer and taller vehicles tend to have significantly larger blind zones. The blind spots are not eliminated by outside mirrors or the size of the mirrors

Oklahoma Practice Tests – 25 Questions

Oklahoma Real Knowledge Tests – 50 Questions
Please note that the real knowledge test in Oklahoma has 50 random questions about road signs, traffic signals, safe driving techniques and Oklahoma traffic laws. The real test will take slightly longer to complete.
Questions on the real exam are from the latest version of the Oklahoma Driver’s Manual. Therefore you should always start by getting the latest version of the Oklahoma Driver’s Manual.
You can get the manual for a small fee at Motor License agents (Tag Agents ).
You can also download a free PDF-version from www.ok.gov .
When you’ve read the manual and think you have learned the basic rules of driving, you should familiarize yourself with the practice tests.
The passing score in Oklahoma is 80 percent, which means you must answer at least 40 of the 50 questions correctly.
Getting 80 percent on the practice test is also good. But it is better to aim for a full score on each practice test. Make sure you fully understand why an answer is correct (or incorrect). This will truly help on the real exam.
Remember, all our tests are 100% free. So, take enough tests to feel comfortable with all answers.
The examination format has (in general) stayed consistent over the last decade. It helps you understand what kind of knowledge the DPS checks for. This can be just as important as learning the content itself.

Who Must Take the Oklahoma Knowledge Test?
All persons applying for an original first-time Oklahoma license must pass the knowledge test.
If you want to renew a license that expired more than three years you must take all tests again, including the written knowledge exam.
When you want to transfer a valid (not expired) out-of-state license to an Oklahoma driver’s license, DPS will waive written and driving tests if department standards are met.
If you have an out-of-country license, you must – in general – take all tests. Exemptions exist for drivers with a license from Canada or Germany, who must pass only the vision screening.
You cannot get a driver license or permit if your privilege to drive is canceled, suspended, or revoked in Oklahoma or any other state.
The Official Exam
As we already said, all answers to the questions on the Class D license exam are found in the official Driver’s Manual. That is why you should make sure you read it.
The test has questions about Oklahoma traffic laws, safe driving practices, traffic signs and signals, and drug and alcohol laws/effects.
If you need an oral test instead of the computerized test, you should call ahead and make an appointment.
Unlike many other states, the test is only available in English and Spanish. You can bring an interpreter, if needed. Oklahoma DPS will not pay for the interpreter.
