Section 7

1. What dangers are created due to aquaplaning?
  • The steering-wheel becomes “heavy” (it will not turn easily).
  • You cannot steer the vehicle through the steering-wheel and brake safely.
  • The vehicle develops a higher speed.
2. You are accelerating your car very harshly and it starts skidding. The first thing you should do is to:
  • Brake softly.
  • Brake harshly.
  • Release the accelerator.
3. Why must safety distance be longer when it starts raining?
  • It is very likely that due to the dirt existing on the road a dangerous layer of sludge may be created on the road, which may increase braking distance.
  • Braking distance is reduced.
  • Visibility is increased.
4. Frozen roads are often more slippery:
  • When the snow starts thawing.
  • When it starts snowing.
  • At the beginning of spring.
5. After a long dry spell a road may be more slippery:
  • When it stops raining.
  • When it starts raining.
  • After a two-hour raining.
6. You feel that the rear wheels of your car are sliding to the right. In order to correct this sliding you should:
  • Turn the steering-wheel to the left.
  • Brake and hold the steering-wheel firmly.
  • Turn the steering-wheel to the right.
7. You are moving in a straight road at a high speed. Which part of the car will lower if you slow down abruptly?
  • None.
  • The front part.
  • The rear part.
8. On a long downhill it is preferable that you should:
  • Change into a lower gear so as to take advantage of engine “braking”.
  • Brake continually.
  • Drive having engaged the neutral.
9. The best way to park the vehicle on a slope is to:
  • Put on the handbrake firmly.
  • Put on the handbrake firmly, place a support under one of the wheels and secure it by engaging a gear (first or reverse).
10. How can somebody secure a passenger vehicle with a mechanic gear-box against rolling on a downhill?
  • By putting on the handbrake and engaging the reverse.
  • By putting the gear into neutral.
  • By putting on the handbrake only.
11. In case of a heavy rain, you should switch on:
  • The side lights only.
  • The rear fog lights.
  • The dipped headlights and the front fog lights.
12. Outside a residential area you should switch on the dipped headlights also in the day-time:
  • To overtake.
  • In a tunnel.
13. You are driving in a motorway. It is raining, therefore, visibility is reduced. You should:
  • Switch on your lights.
  • Switch on the hazard warning lights.
  • Not use the lights.
14. If a driver moving in the opposite direction dazzles you having their headlights on full beam:
  • You should switch on your full beam headlights as well.
  • You should slow down and drive looking at the right side.
15. You are turning from a well-lit street to another which is not lit. What should you be careful about in this case?
  • The speed must be adjusted to different visibility conditions.
  • The eyes adjust immediately to different lighting conditions.
  • Obstacles on the edges of the road are recognised easier than before.
16. Which hours must you have the dipped headlights of your car on when moving?
  • From 7 in the evening till 6 in the morning.
  • From sunrise to sunset.
  • Half an hour after sunset and up to half an hour before sunrise.
17. It is foggy and you are driving in a motorway having a visibility of 40 m. What speed must you not exceed?
  • 70 km/h.
  • 50 km/h.
  • 90 km/h.
18. In the day-time you should use your lights:
  • When reversing.
  • When visibility is insufficient.
  • When driving in country roads.
19. Every time you overtake a vehicle in the night-time and you are allowed to switch on the full beam headlights, you should do this:
  • Just before moving to the left.
  • When you are on the same level with it.
  • When you are on the left and before reaching its level.
20. What should you do if in the day-time you enter an underground passage which has insufficient light?
  • Use the light warnings.
  • Switch on the dipped headlights.
  • Switch on the side lights.
21. Why should you drive with at least the dipped headlights on even in the day-time, when visibility is obstructed significantly by a fog, rainfall or snowfall?
  • So that you become visible in good time by the other road users.
  • So that you are able to move at a very high speed.
22. Can you drive with headlights on full beam in an unlit residential area?
  • YES
  • NO
23. The panes of your vehicle have ice. What should you do before starting?
  • Remove the ice from the windscreen.
  • Clean the ice from all panes.
  • For driving within a city, it suffices to clean only the ice from the part of the pane which is in front of the driver’s seat.
24. What should you check, among others, in a passenger car with a towed caravan, before starting?
  • Whether rear visibility through the mirrors is sufficient.
  • Whether the towed caravan has all the necessary equipment.
25. Even in the day-time you must drive with the dipped headlights on:
  • When visibility is insufficient due to the dirty windscreen.
  • When visibility is insufficient due to a rainfall or fog or snowfall.
26. In order to avoid aquaplaning:
  • Drive at a reduced speed.
  • Drive in a high gear.
27. The ice:
  • Is formed mainly in mountainous areas, on bridges and near water currents.
  • Is formed mainly in foggy days.
  • Has usually been distributed uniformly on the road.
28. The tyre grip on a wet road is reduced when compared to a dry road, by:
  • 25%.
  • 50%.
  • 75%.
29. Aquaplaning occurs:
  • When you throw road water to the other users.
  • When your vehicle slips on a layer of road water.
30. What should you do when tyre grip on the road is reduced?
  • Slow down and avoid abrupt movements through the steering-wheel.
  • Restrict the speed of your car to 50 km/h.
