|Wyoming Permit Practice Test|
|Questions per test:||25|
|Type of test:||Random multiple-choice|
#1. Night driving is more dangerous than daytime driving because:
Darkness requires greater alertness. Reduced visibility, glare from oncoming headlights, animals crossing the road, and eye strain all combine to make night driving hazardous.
Never drive so fast that you cannot stop within the distance you can see ahead with your headlights.
#2. The amount of alcohol in the blood is generally referred to as:
The amount or concentration of alcohol in the blood is known as Blood Alcohol Concentration or BAC.
#3. If a school bus with flashing red lights has stopped on your side of a divided highway, you must:
When meeting or overtaking, from either direction, a stopped school bus with flashing red lights. The driver shall not proceed until the school bus resumes motion or the flashing red lights are no longer activated.
Exception: You may pass a school bus with activated flashing red lights, only if there is a physical barrier or separate roadways between your vehicle and the school bus. You must use extreme caution, however, watching for pedestrians.
#4. If you cannot get in the clear on the other side of a railroad crossing, you should:
Do not get trapped on a highway-rail intersection. NEVER drive onto a highway-rail intersection until you are sure you can clear the tracks on the other side without stopping.
#5. Steer with one hand at the top of the steering wheel when:
When you back up, place your hand at the top of the steering wheel and back slowly. Turn your head and body so that you can see where you are backing. Do not depend upon your mirrors.
#6. A first conviction of Driving While Under the Influence may result in:
A DWUI results when you have been convicted in court of Driving While Under the Influence. Penalties include a license suspension for 90 days. If you served or are serving suspension for Administrative Per Se, the suspension period will be the same.
#7. When you park on a hill headed uphill and there is no curb, you should turn your front wheels:
If you park facing uphill where there is a curb, you should set the parking brake and turn the wheels away from the curb. In any other situation, turn the wheels towards the curb or edge of the road.
Turn off the engine, take the keys and lock the car.
#8. To prevent skidding on slippery surfaces, you should:
As you cannot control a vehicle when it is skidding, it is best not to cause your vehicle to skid in the first place. On a slippery road, keep your speed down. Stopping will be a simpler maneuver, and the risk of skidding will be reduced.
But if you begin to skid, gently turn into the skid, and ease your foot off the gas until you regain control.
Remember to stop doing whatever you did to start the skid. If you slammed on the brakes, ease up on them. If you accelerated too fast, ease up on the gas pedal.
#9. Which is true about Anti-Lock Brakes (ABS)?
One aspect of having Anti-Lock Brake Systems (ABS) is that you can turn your vehicle while braking without skidding. In an emergency situation, ABS pumps the brakes for the driver – much faster than the driver can. All drivers need to do is press down hard on the brake pedal, hold it and steer out of danger. Drivers should be aware that removing steady pressure from the brake pedal or pumping the brakes will disengage or turn off the ABS system. Make sure you are aware of the type of braking system your vehicle has.
#10. What does this sign mean?
Steep hill ahead. Slow down and be ready to shift to lower gear to control speed and protect brakes from damage.
#11. What does a solid yellow line on a two-lane road indicate?
Solid yellow lines indicate no passing or lane changing – unless making a left turn into or from an alley, private road, or driveway.
#12. Once every other license renewal period, you must pass:
Once every eight years, you are required to appear in person to renew your driver’s license. An updated photo will be taken at that time and you will be required to pass a vision screening.
Other tests may be required at the discretion of the examiner.
#13. In Wyoming, headlights are required:
In Wyoming, headlights must be used from one-half hour after sunset until one-half hour before sunrise and at any other time when, due to insufficient light or unfavorable weather conditions, persons and vehicles on the road are not clearly discernable at a distance of 1,000 feet ahead.
#14. Which of the following must you obey over the other two?
A police officer’s directions outweigh traffic lights or signs. You must also obey directions from school crossing guards and flag persons.
#15. When a traffic signal turns green, you:
A steady green light means go. You may enter the intersection when the way is clear. You MUST yield the right of way to other vehicles and persons already in the intersection.
Remember, do not block an intersection.
#16. If many vehicles are passing you in the right lane of an interstate:
Stay in the right lane unless overtaking and passing another vehicle. If many vehicles are passing you in the right lane of a multilane roadway, you are probably going slower than the rest of the traffic and should move right.
Remember, maintain a steady speed, keeping pace with other traffic, and obey posted speed limits.
#17. Going slower than traffic is:
Going slower than traffic or stopping suddenly is as dangerous as speeding. The risk of rear-end collisions is added to the risk of vehicles passing you.
No person shall drive a motor vehicle at such a slow speed as to impede the normal and reasonable movement of traffic except when reduced speed is necessary for safe operation or in compliance with law.
#18. Be especially careful to look for bicyclists when you are preparing to:
Be especially careful to look for bicyclists when you are preparing to enter a roadway or to make a turn. Intersections are particularly dangerous for both cars and bikes. You must not try to pass a bicyclist just before making a turn. Merge safely where it is allowed, then turn.
#19. If you are being followed closely or tailgated, you should:
- Provide more time and space ahead to react to emergencies (increase the following distance between you and the vehicle in front of you.)
- Move to the right lane of a multilane highway.
- Reduce your speed to encourage the driver behind to pass. Never slow down quickly to discourage a tailgater, all that does is increase your risk of being hit from behind.
#20. When a pedestrian is crossing at an intersection with no marked crosswalk, you should:
A driver must give the right of way or yield to a pedestrian:
- When a pedestrian is in a marked crosswalk on your side of the roadway with or without traffic control signals.
- When making a lawful turn on a red light, after coming to a complete stop.
#21. A sign with this shape means:
The pentagon (five-sided) shape warns you of school zones and marks school crossings.
#22. This sign is:
This is a regulatory speed limit sign. It shows the maximum speed you are allowed to travel.
#23. If you are sitting in a large truck, is your total view of road better or worse than in a car?
Many drivers falsely assume that a trucker can see the road better because they sit twice as high as the driver of a car. The truck driver has a better view over the top of any cars ahead of him, but heavy vehicles also have sizeable blind spots that passenger vehicles do not have.
#24. Always look carefully for motorcycles before you change lanes because:
Motorcycles are not easily identified in traffic. Even when seen it’s difficult for some drivers to judge how far away the cyclists are or how fast they are traveling.
Motorcyclists have the same rights and responsibilities on public roads as other users.
#25. Using hands-free cell phones while driving:
While legal, using hands-free cell phones provides little safety benefit over handheld phones. Research shows that it is the actual process of conversing that proves to be among the greatest driver distractions.
Wyoming law prohibits reading or sending a text message from a cell phone or other device while operating a vehicle.

Official Wyoming Knowledge Test
The knowledge test has questions related to the class of license you are applying for. Answers to all exam questions are found in the applicable driver manual.
On the test, you must identify traffic signs by shape, color, or symbol, and identify signals and pavement markings. The test also has questions regarding seat belt usage, traffic laws, safety rules, crash prevention and vehicle equipment.

Wyoming tests are only in English. If you cannot speak English, you may use an interpreter for the written tests.
