#2. When overtaking and passing a bicycle, you must allow at least the following space between your vehicle and the bicycle:
Allow at least three feet of space when overtaking and passing a bicycle.
#3. When stopping on a slippery surface such as snow or ice with standard brakes, you should:
Brake early. Tap standard brakes slightly, about one-second apart. Braking suddenly can make the car skid.
Never tap antilock brakes.
#4. If you encounter an aggressive driver on the road, it is wrong to:
Avoid eye contact with an aggressive driver. Just get out of the way.
This question asked what you should not do.
#5. Adult passengers in a car must always wear seat belts:
Every driver and front-seat passenger must wear a properly adjusted and fastened safety seat belt system. The seat belt must be factory-installed and meet federal safety standards.
Remember, all passengers SHOULD wear seat belts. However, current law only requires occupants of the front seats to wear seat belts.
#6. What does this sign mean?
Pedestrian crossing. This sign tells you that you are near an area where a large number of pedestrians cross the street. Slow down and watch for people crossing the street on foot. Pedestrians in crosswalks must be given the right-of-way at all times.
#7. When making a long trip, you should:
You should not leave on a trip if you are already tired.
#8. This is the shape and color of a:
A yield sign is a downward pointing triangle. It is red and white with red letters. You will see no other signs of this shape on the highway.
Slow down and give vehicles crossing your path the right-of-way. If the way is clear, you may move forward slowly without stopping. Yield signs are usually placed where auxiliary roads lead into major roads.
#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. If your car starts to skid due to wet or icy conditions, it is generally wrong to:
You should not brake hard.
Take your foot off the brake, sudden braking increases the skid.
This question asked what you should not do.
#11. If you are crossing the tracks and the warning lights begin flashing or the gates start coming down:
If you are crossing the tracks and the warning lights begin flashing or the gates start coming down, do not stop. Keep moving!
The warning signals will allow enough time for you to finish driving through the crossing before the train arrives. The gate on the far side of the tracks will not block you in. Never try to back up!
#12. On a good road in good weather, the average braking distance at 80 mph is:
The process of stopping your car has three main components: perception, reaction and braking. Before you even start to brake, you will have traveled at least 140 feet (1.16 seconds). Then the average braking distance, at 80 mph on a good road in good weather, will be 320 feet.
#13. When are dashed white lines used as pavement marking between lanes?
White lane lines separate lanes of traffic moving in the same direction. Single white lines may also mark the right edge of the pavement. Dashed lines means that changing lanes and passing is permitted when safe. Solid white lines means that passing is hazardous and discouraged, as when you are approaching an intersection or merge area.
#14. If you refuse to take a test to measure how much alcohol is in your system:
The very act of driving or being in actual physical control of a motor vehicle means that you have agreed to take one or more tests to determine your blood alcohol content (BAC). This law applies to everyone, residents and nonresidents alike. Refusal to take the test upon request by a law enforcement officer will result in an automatic revocation of your driving privilege, even if you have not been drinking. If you have been drinking, the test will determine the BAC level.
If the BAC level is 0.08 or more (or any measurable amount if you are under 21 years old), your driver license will be revoked, even if you are not convicted in court of driving under the influence (DUI).
#15. At an uncontrolled intersection, a pedestrian has entered the crosswalk. In this situation, you should:
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.
#16. When a truck makes a turn:
Trucks often swing wide. This is because the rear wheels follow a shorter path than the front wheels. The longer the vehicle, the greater the difference.
#17. The speed shown on this sign is in effect:
When you see the School Zone sign, you must reduce your speed to the limit shown when the yellow light is flashing. Watch carefully for children and be ready to stop.
#18. When you approach a traffic signal displaying a steady yellow light, you must:
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.
#19. A good rule of thumb for calculating safe distance between you and the car ahead is:
Stay 3 seconds behind the vehicle in front of you. Allow 4 seconds or more in bad weather. With a safe following distance you give yourself time and distance to respond to problems.
#20. How many points may be deducted from your driver's record if you complete a DPS-approved Driver Compliance or Defensive Driving Course?
Two (2) points are deducted for successful completion of a DPS-approved Driver Compliance or Defensive Driving Course.
#21. Parking on a crosswalk in the middle of a block is:
It is illegal to park your vehicle on a crosswalk.
#22. In which situation are you allowed to pass a school bus?
Remember, under special circumstances, an officer may be directing the flow of traffic. If so, obey the officer’s signals instead of the normal traffic signals or signs.
#23. What does this sign mean?
Lane reduction ahead. There will be fewer lanes ahead. Traffic must merge left. Drivers in the left lane should allow others to merge smoothly. Right lane ends.
#24. The driver in front of you signals (left arm extended, with elbow bent upward, at about a 90-degree angle):
Right turn – left arm extended, with elbow bent upward, at about a 90-degree angle.
#25. Traffic signs that show construction and maintenance warnings are:
Orange is used for construction and maintenance warning. The signs are usually diamond shaped. They notify drivers of unusual or potentially dangerous conditions near work areas.

Oklahoma Practice Tests – 25 Questions
This free permit practice test at Driver’s Prep has 25 random test questions. Each set of questions will help you prepare for the real Oklahoma exam and speed up your learning.
All questions are the same or very similar to real Oklahoma written knowledge test questions and all answers can be found in the latest Oklahoma Driver’s Manual.

If you miss a question, there is a brief comment to help you understand why your answer was wrong.
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.
