Permit Test 4



#1. When another vehicle is in danger of hitting you, you should:

If there is danger, sound a sharp blast on your horn. Sound a sharp blast when:

  • A child or older person is about to walk, run, or ride into the street.
  • Another car is in danger of hitting you.
  • You lose control of your vehicle and you are moving into the lane of oncoming traffic or in the direction of pedestrians.

#2. Orange is used as a background color on which road signs?

Work zone signs are typically diamond shaped, orange with black letters or symbols.


#3. Yellow lines on the pavement:

Yellow lines mark the center of a road used for traffic going in opposite directions.


#4. You have given consent to take a test for determining the alcoholic level in your blood:

The law in Arkansas says that if you are driving a vehicle, you have given consent to submit to a chemical test for the purpose of determining the amount of alcohol in your blood. If a law enforcement officer instructs you to take an alcohol test you are compelled to do so. You can lose your driver license if you refuse to take an alcohol test. Food in the stomach causes alcohol to be absorbed more slowly, slowing down the rate and the amount of intoxication. It will not prevent the alcohol to get into your blood.


#5. When approaching a stopped school bus which is picking up or dropping off children and traveling on your side of an undivided highway, you must:

When approaching a school bus that is stopped and red warning lights on the bus are activated, all approaching vehicles are required to also stop. Regardless of where the driver may be in relation to the bus, whether it is in the same lane of traffic, opposing lane or at an intersection, traffic must come to a complete stop until the school bus turns off the warning lights and begins to move. Drivers are not required to stop if the school bus is approaching along an opposite lane of travel separated by a median twenty feet or more in width.


#6. When you see this sign:

Added lane sign. Two roadways come together, but you are not required to merge. An additional lane begins. Watch for traffic in the new lane.


#7. You approach an intersection with a stop sign. Where must you first stop?

When required to stop because of a sign or signal, a driver must stop before the vehicle reaches the stop line, or if there is one, a crosswalk. If there is no crosswalk and no stop line, a driver must stop at the point nearest the intersecting roadway where the driver has a view of approaching traffic before entering the intersection.


#8. You need to drive more slowly at night because:

You must be able to stop within the distance you can see ahead with your headlights. Your headlights let you see about 400 feet ahead. You should drive at a speed that allows you to stop within this distance, or about 50 mph.


#9. You must obey signals and directions from school crossing guards:

You must obey their directions at all times.


#10. What is a turnout area used for?

When necessary you should use the turn-out area to let other vehicles pass.


#11. What does this sign mean?

Hospital is a word message sign or an H symbol sign. Remember, blue and white signs direct you to services, such as rest areas, gas stations, campgrounds, or hospitals.


#12. When driving beside a motorcycle, you should:

Never share a lane with a motorcyclist.


#13. What does this sign mean?

Divided highway ahead (divided highway begins). The highway ahead is divided into two one-way roadways. Keep to the right.


#14. When driving on slick roads, you should:

To prevent skidding on slippery surfaces you should adjust your speed, avoid fast turns and quick stops.


#15. Any time you merge with other traffic, you:

Anytime you want to merge with other traffic, you need a gap of about four seconds. If you move into the middle of a four second gap, both your vehicle and the vehicle that is now behind you have a two second following distance.

You need a four second gap whenever you change lanes, enter a roadway, or your lane merges with another travel lane.

Do not try to merge into a gap that is too small. A small gap can quickly become even smaller. Enter a gap that gives you a big enough cushion of safety.


#16. If you are involved in a collision you must always:

If you are involved in a crash you must stop, regardless of the extent of damage.


#17. If another vehicle is about to enter the street between you and where you plan to turn, you should:

If another vehicle is about to enter the street between you and where you plan to turn, wait until you have passed it to signal your turn. If you signal earlier, other drivers may think you plan to turn where they are and proceed into your path.


#18. Which is a suitable restraint system for a child under one year?

For the best possible protection, place infants in the back seat of your vehicle in rear-facing child safety seats. Rear-facing seats are the safest way to transport an infant and should be used until the child no longer meets the height or weight limit of the particular seat.


#19. When children are nearby, what should you do before backing out of a driveway or parking lot?

Check behind your vehicle before you get in. Children or small objects cannot be seen from the driver’s seat.


#20. You approach a railroad crossing and see a vehicle with this sign. You should:

Leave extra room for vehicles required to come to a stop at railroad crossings, including transit buses, school buses, and vehicles carrying hazardous materials. Remember, if you are following this type of vehicle you should slow down and be prepared to stop. It is against the law to pass any vehicle within 100 feet of a railroad crossing.


#21. Double parking is allowed:

Parking along the street or highway next to another parked vehicle (double parking) is not allowed.


#22. When you approach a traffic circle:

When approaching, slow down to the posted advisory speed. Yield to pedestrians in the crosswalk. When entering a traffic circle or rotary, you must yield to drivers already in the circle.


#23. Drivers lingering on the sides and in the rear of a truck or tractor-trailer:

Motorists remaining in the blind spots on the sides and in the rear of a truck hamper the trucker’s ability to take evasive action to avoid a dangerous situation, and the possibility of a crash is increased.


#24. The 'two-second rule' tells you:

There is an easy way to tell if you are following too closely. It is call the two-second rule, and it works at any speed. There are situations where you need more space in front of your vehicle. In these situations, you may need a four second following distance to be safe. Remember, using the two-second rule does not mean that you are able to stop within two seconds.


#25. This sign means:

No Right Turn. You cannot make a right turn at this intersection. Remember that a red circle with a slash means NO. Such a sign shows you what is not allowed.

See result!
