|Questions on each practice test:||25|
|Type of test:||Random multiple-choice test|
#1. Which car or cars are driving in the truck's blind spots?
The yellow (A) car and the red (B) car. It is important to remember that there are several no-zones (blind spots) in which a truck driver cannot see other vehicles. These areas include both sides, rear, and front of the truck.
#2. This flagger signal means:
To stop traffic, the flagger extends a red flag into the line of traffic, with the flag hanging down. The free arm is held with the palm above shoulder level and facing the viewer.
#3. When driving near a pedestrian who is carrying a white cane and using a guide dog, you must:
Drivers must give the right-of-way to any blind person crossing the street. Blind pedestrians will normally have a guide dog or will be using a cane. The cane may be all white, white with a red tip, or chrome. The person will tap it on the pavement ahead. The law says you should:
- Stop immediately and let the person pass.
- Stop outside the crosswalk, not in the crosswalk.
- A vehicle must stop 15 feet away for a blind person in the roadway or at an intersection.
#4. If you miss your exit when leaving a freeway, you should:
If you miss your exit, take the next one.
#5. At a fire hydrant, parking is not allowed:
It is illegal to park your vehicle within 15 feet of a fire hydrant.
#6. Under Oklahoma mandatory point system your driving privilege will be suspended if you within five years accumulate:
If you accumulate 10 or more points within five years, your license will be suspended.
#7. 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.
#8. What does this road sign mean?
Steep hill ahead. Slow down and be ready to shift to lower gear to control speed and protect brakes from damage.
#9. You near an intersection. The traffic light changes from the green to yellow. What would your best action be?
Yellow circular lights or arrows are caution warnings. The light is about to change. Remember, you must stop if you can stop safely before entering the crosswalk at the intersection! Adjust your speed as you approach so that you can come to a smooth stop if needed. Do not speed up to beat the light.
If you cannot stop, enter the intersection carefully. Collisions often happen here.
#10. 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.
#11. When driving on a clear night with a steady stream of oncoming traffic, you should use:
Use low beams when following other vehicles, when meeting oncoming vehicles, and when driving in the city where there are streetlights. Use high beams only when driving in the open country without other cars near. Parking lights are not for highway driving.
#12. What should you do when you approach this sign?
Stop sign ahead. When you come to this sign, slow down to be ready to stop at the stop sign.
#13. If you need to use arm signals, how would you signal a right turn?
Right turn – left arm extended, with elbow bent upward, at about a 90-degree angle.
#14. What does this sign mean?
Deer crossing. Deer or other animals are common in this area. Watch for deer crossing the road, particularly during twilight and night-time hours.
#15. If you are traveling 60 mph and suddenly need to stop, how far will your car approximately go, before you react and can start braking (1.5 seconds)?
The process of stopping your car has three main components: perception, reaction and braking. Perception and reaction are affected by human factors, but it usually takes longer to stop than most people realize. The time it takes to perceive a danger is usually half a second, and the time it takes to react is approximately two thirds of a second to one second. In that time (1.5 seconds) a car has traveled 132 feet.
Note: the handbook talks about 1.16 seconds, but the values in the table represent the distance traveled in 1.5 seconds. This is also used in this question.
#16. If you encounter an aggressive driver on the road:
Keep away from people who are driving crazy. Avoid eye contact with an aggressive driver. Stay cool. Keep looking straight ahead and refuse to be part of the problem. Do not join in the confrontation, even if it is just honking your horn or glaring back. Just get out of the way. Do not make it worse.
- Do not make obscene gestures.
- Do not block passing or right-turn lanes.
- Do not tailgate.
- Do not use bright lights when following at night.
- Do not take more than one parking space.
- Avoid bumping into another car when you open your car door.
#17. An important reminder for safe night driving is to:
Over driving headlights is a common and dangerous practice. You should never drive so fast that you cannot stop within the distance you can see ahead with your lights.
#18. The blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level at which it is illegal for a person less than 21 years to drive is:
It is unlawful and punishable as stated below, for any person under 21 years of age to drive, operate, or be in actual physical control of a motor vehicle who has any measurable quantity of alcohol in the blood or breath at the time a test is administered. Remember, observations and information gathered by the arresting officer are also evidence that may be used in court and can result in a conviction without a BAC test. This applies if you exhibit evidence of being under the influence of any other intoxicating substance or exhibit evidence of the combined influence of alcohol and any other intoxicating substance.
#19. Which lane is closed for traffic going straight ahead?
Lane-use control signals show how specific lanes of a street or highway should be used. A steady red X over a lane means you are not allowed to use the traffic lane.
#20. To avoid getting tired on a long trip, you should:
It is advisable to take regular rest stops, every 100 miles or every two hours.
Highway hypnosis is often brought on by monotony, like the sound of the wind, the tires on the pavement, and the steady hum of the engine. Keep shifting your eyes from one area of the roadway to another and focus them on various objects – near and far, left and right.
#21. At a railroad crossing with only crossbuck signs, you should:
As you approach a railroad crossing, slow down and look up and down the tracks to make sure a train is not coming.
#22. If you are involved in a minor collision without injuries, you should always:
If the accident do not involve injury or death, you must make every reasonable effort to move your vehicle from the roadway so the regular flow of traffic is not blocked.
#23. Where is the pavement marked with the letter R on each side of a large X?
At railroad crossings, the pavement is usually marked with the letter R on each side of a large X (R X R).
#24. Which signs have the shape of a four-sided diamond?
Four-sided diamond-shaped signs warn you of existing or possible hazards on roadways or adjacent areas.
#25. Visitors with a driver's license from a foreign country may drive in Oklahoma, as long as:
An Oklahoma License is not required for nonresidents at least 16 years old who are properly licensed to drive in their home state or country.

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.
