#1. If your vehicle starts to skid or hydroplane, you should:
If your vehicle begins to skid, stay calm and ease off the gas. Stay off the brake. Until the vehicle slows, your brakes will not work and could cause you to skid more. Turn the steering wheel in the direction you want the vehicle to go. As soon as the vehicle begins to straighten out, turn the steering wheel back the other way. If you do not do so, your vehicle may swing around in the other direction and you could start a new skid. Continue to correct your steering, left and right, until the vehicle is again moving down the road under your control.
#2. Driving around a lowered gate at a railroad crossing is:
Never drive around the gates. It is dangerous and against the law.
#3. Drinking coffee after drinking alcohol:
There is no way to sober up quickly. Coffee, fresh air, exercise, sleep, or cold showers will not help. Time is the only thing that will allow the alcohol to get out of your system.
#4. What should your speed be when entering an interstate highway?
When you merge with traffic, try to enter at the same speed that traffic is moving. High-speed roadways generally have ramps to give you time to build up speed. Use the ramp to reach the speed of the other vehicles before you pull onto the road.
Do not drive to the end of the ramp and stop. This will not leave you enough room to get up to the speed of traffic. Also, drivers behind you will not expect you to stop. If they are watching traffic on the main road, you may be hit from the rear.
If you have to wait for space to enter the roadway, slow down on the ramp so you have some room to speed up before you have to merge.
#5. Backing a vehicle on freeways:
Never back a vehicle in any travel lane. It is illegal and unsafe to do so. If a turn or exit is missed, do not back up, instead proceed to a safe turn around area.
#6. Before turning left or right, you must signal during the last:
Get into the habit of signaling every time you make a change. Signal at least 100 feet before you plan to turn.
#7. You are more likely to get tired on a long trip if you:
You should not drive late at night when you normally sleep.
#8. This sign means:
No Turn on Red. You may not turn right or left during the red light. You must wait for the signal to turn green.
#9. Give your horn a sharp blast:
If there is danger, sound a sharp blast on your horn. Sound a sharp blast when:<ul> <li>A child or older person is about to walk, run, or ride into the street.</li> <li>Another car is in danger of hitting you.</li><li>You lose control of your vehicle and you are moving into the lane of oncoming traffic or in the direction of pedestrians.</li></ul>
#10. In Arkansas, headlights are required:
Turn on your headlights whenever you have trouble seeing others. If you have trouble seeing them, they are having trouble seeing you.
By law, you must turn on your headlights from a half hour after sunset to a half hour before sunrise. You must also use headlights at any time you cannot see a person or object clearly within 500 feet.
If you turn on your wipers due to weather conditions, you must also turn on your headlights. It is the law in Arkansas.
#11. A traffic light with a green arrow indicates:
A green arrow may be shown alone or with other indications. Drivers facing the signal may enter the intersection to make the movement shown by the arrow. When the green arrow is shown in a left-turn signal, it usually means that opposing traffic is stopped. This is known as a protected turn.
Remember, the green arrow does not mean that all other traffic is stopped by a red light.
You must allow opposing traffic already in the intersection to clear the intersection before proceeding.
#12. During a rainfall on a hot day, when are road pavements usually most slippery?
Pavements are often most slippery for the first few minutes during a rainfall. If it starts to rain on a hot day, the pavement can be very slippery for a while. Heat causes the oil in the asphalt to come to the surface. The road is more slippery until the oil is washed off.
#13. When passing a bicyclist, you should pass:
Leave at least three feet of space between your car and a bicyclist when passing.
#14. When a police officer is directing you to drive against a red light, you should:
Traffic controls include traffic signals, traffic signs and pavement markings. Traffic control also can be provided by law enforcement, highway personnel or school crossing guards. You must obey directions from these persons.
#15. If a yellow center line is solid on your side of the road, it means:
If the solid yellow line is on your side of the road, do not pass. Pass only if there is a dashed (broken) line on your side.
#16. The first thing affected by drinking alcohol is your:
Remember, alcohol reduces all of the important skills you need to drive safely. Alcohol affects those areas of your brain that control judgment and skill. This is one reason why drinking alcohol is so dangerous, it affects your judgment. Alcohol also slows your reflexes and reaction time, reduces your ability to see clearly, and makes you less alert. As the amount of alcohol in your body increases, your judgment worsens and your skills decrease. You will have trouble judging distances, speeds, and the movement of other vehicles. You will also have trouble controlling your vehicle.
#17. Which is true about motorcycles?
The small profile of the motorcycle may make it appear farther away and traveling slower than it actually is. Drivers need to take a second look, and then a third. Always make a visual check (mirrors, too) of blind spots before entering or leaving a lane of traffic and at intersections. Intersections are the most likely places for car/motorcycle crash to occur. This usually is the result of a car driver NOT SEEING the motorcycle and turning into the motorcycle’s path.
#18. It is illegal to park a vehicle if a fire hydrant is within:
Parking is not allowed within 15 feet of a fire hydrant.
#19. A flashing yellow light means:
A flashing yellow traffic signal light indicates to proceed with caution.
#20. When two vehicles from different directions arrive at the same time at a four-way stop, which one must yield?
At four-way stops, the first vehicle to stop should move forward first. If two vehicles reach the intersection at the same time, the driver on the left yields to the driver on the right.
#21. You should adjust your seat, rearview mirror, and side mirror:
Your safety and that of the public depends greatly on what you do before driving, including adjusting your seat and mirrors, using safety belts, checking your vehicle, maintaining a clear view outside the vehicle, and securing the vehicle. Always check your seat and mirrors before driving away. Do not adjust the seat while the vehicle is in motion.
#22. This sign tells you that:
Winding road. There are several curves ahead. Drive slowly and carefully. An advisory speed sign may be attached below the sign.
#23. A vehicle carrying this sign:
A reflective orange triangle on the rear of a vehicle means the vehicle is traveling less than 25 miles per hour. A driver may see this sign on construction equipment or in rural areas on farm vehicles, or on horse drawn wagons or carriages.
#24. When you drive through a construction zone, you should:
Adjust your speed to traffic conditions. Proceed with caution. Obey all instructions provided by signs, traffic signals and flaggers. Do not follow other vehicles too closely. Remember to be prepared for the unexpected when traveling through work zones.
#25. When should you drive with your parking lights turned on?
Never drive at any time with only your parking lights turned on. Parking lights are for parking only.
Looking for Arkansas Permit Practice?
Looking for permit practice tests to study for your Arkansas instruction permit? Well, then you’ve found them.
Don’t wait with your practice until the last minute. While some do seem to manage last-minute cramming and succeed, it’s widely accepted that this is not the best way to approach an exam.
Take Your Time with the Arkansas Permit Practice
Doing the Arkansas permit practice tests is simple and fast, but don’t just rush through the tests. Take some time to reflect on answers you don’t understand. Use parents and friends around you to your advantage. Discuss and try to explain why an answer to a question is correct – or incorrect. That will help you to get facts clear in your head.
Remember, all errors you make highlight any areas where you need to study more.
