|Wyoming Permit Practice Test|
|Questions per test:||25|
|Type of test:||Random multiple-choice|
#1. If your vehicle breaks down on a highway, you should always:
If your vehicle is not working properly and you need to stop, you should stop with all four wheels on the shoulder. Turn on your emergency four-way flashers. Get out of the side of the vehicle away from the traffic. To indicate vehicle problems, tie a white cloth to an antenna or door handle and raise your hood or trunk lid. Do not walk for help if you are on the interstate.
#2. When headlights are required, can you drive with just your parking lights on?
Never use parking lights while driving. They cannot be seen until after your vehicle is clearly visible. It is not legal to drive with only parking lights when headlights are required.
#3. Traffic signs that warn a driver of temporary traffic conditions due to road works 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.
#4. If you are involved in a traffic crash and someone is injured:
Give aid to any injured persons and send for an ambulance. Do not move an injured person unless there is danger of another crash.
Remember to contact the police if there is an injury, death or property damage amounting to $1,000 or more. The law requires you to give the police information on the crash at the time of the crash.
#5. Which is true about signaling at higher speeds?
You must signal at least 100 feet from an intersection. At higher speeds, you should signal at least 4 to 5 seconds before you wish to turn.
#6. This red and white sign means:
You get on the Interstate by using an entrance ramp, but be alert for Do Not Enter and Wrong Way signs that might indicate that you are about to begin going the wrong way on an exit ramp instead. The Wrong Way sign is a supplement to the Do Not Enter sign. It is placed along the exit ramp or the one-way roadway farther from the crossroad. It tells you that you have already entered a one-way road and are driving in the wrong direction.
If you find yourself going the wrong way on a ramp, you should pull onto the shoulder, stop, and only turn around when there is no oncoming traffic.
#7. When passing a truck, it is dangerous to:
When a passenger vehicle cuts in too soon after passing a heavy vehicle, then abruptly slows down, truck drivers are forced to compensate with little time or room to spare. Because it takes longer to pass a large vehicle, you should maintain a consistent speed when passing and be sure you can see both headlights and the entire cab of the truck in your rearview mirror before pulling back into your lane. Consider the vehicle’s total length, particularly rigs with double trailers. Some can be as much as 100 feet long.
Trying to beat a truck through a single-lane construction zone, for example, removes the truck driver’s cushion of safety and places you in danger.
#8. When entering an interstate, you must:
Do not forget that traffic on the interstate has the right of way. You cannot always count on other drivers seeing you or moving over to give you room to enter.
#9. During a rainfall on a hot day, when are road pavements usually most hazardous?
Be careful during the first half hour after the rain begins. Dust and oil mix with the water and make the roadway slippery. The road is more slippery until this mixture is washed off.
#10. You are driving 45 mph in a 55-mph speed limit zone. You can be cited for speeding.
Posted speed limits do not tell you at what speed to drive. It is imperative that you drive according to road conditions. You must also adjust your speed for traffic conditions and how well you can see ahead.
Wyoming statutes say: No person shall drive a vehicle on a highway at a speed greater than is reasonable and prudent under the conditions and having regard to the actual and potential hazards then existing. This is known as the basic speed law.
#11. A temporary removal of a person's privilege to drive is the same as:
A suspension is the temporary removal of a person’s privilege to drive. The license may be returned after a specified period of time, and/or after certain requirements have been met.
#12. A third or subsequent DWUI offense will result in:
A third or subsequent DWUI offense (within 10 years), will result in a revocation. The length of the revocation is three years.
#13. What does this sign mean?
School signs tell you are near a school or school crossing. If you see a school sign, slow down. Check for children and identify as critical any child who could run into your path.
#14. When a police officer is directing you to drive against a red light, you should:
A police officer’s directions outweigh traffic lights or signs. You must also obey directions from school crossing guards and flag persons.
#15. What do the light gray areas in the picture mark?
Blind spots are the areas near the right and left rear corners of the vehicle which cannot be seen through rearview mirrors. You must turn your head and look over your shoulder to view these areas.
Avoid driving in other drivers’ blind spots by placing your vehicle where you can be seen.
#16. A pedestrian has entered a crosswalk where there are no signs or signals. Who should be given the right-of-way?
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.
#17. What can you do to avoid carbon monoxide poisoning?
Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless, and poisonous gas. Signs of carbon monoxide poisoning are weariness, yawning, dizziness, nausea, headache, and ringing in the ears. If you feel any of these symptoms, stop your engine and open the windows to get fresh air.
Have the exhaust system checked regularly to be sure it does not leak. Avoid parking for long periods of time with the engine running. Do not start your vehicle, or warm up the engine, in a closed garage.
#18. To avoid getting accidentally trapped on 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.
Never shift gears with a manual transmission while crossing the tracks.
#19. Where is the pavement marked with the letter R on each side of a large X?
Pavement markings at railroad crossings consist of an RXR followed by a stop line closer to the tracks. They may be painted on the paved approach to a crossing. Stay behind the stop line while waiting for a train to pass.
#20. The speed limit in a blind intersection is:
The speed limit in a blind intersection is 15 mph. An intersection is considered blind if there are no stop signs at any corner and you cannot see for 100 feet in either direction during the last 100 feet before crossing.
#21. If a school bus with flashing red lights has stopped on the other side of a two-lane roadway with a center turning lane, 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.
#22. Penalties for driving while under the influence of drugs are:
The penalties are the same whether the driver was drinking alcohol or taking controlled drugs.
#23. If you have a tire blowout while driving, it can be dangerous to:
Remember, do not overreact. Do not steer sharply off the road.
If you have a tire blowout, you should hold the steering wheel tightly, and keep the car going straight down the road. Ease your foot off the gas pedal but do not hit the brakes. After the car is under control, brake gently, and pull off the road at the nearest safe spot.
#24. When parking uphill on a two-way street with no curbs, your front wheels should be:
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.
#25. Which light indicates that you must always come to a complete stop at an intersection?
At a steady red signal, you must stop behind the crosswalks or stop line. You can turn right unless there is a sign that prohibits the turn. You may turn right only after stopping and yielding to persons and other vehicles. You may also, after stopping and yielding, turn left from a one-way street onto a one-way street.
