Mock Test #3 – Study for the DVSA Car Test

Driver's Mock Test #3 - Car Test Questions

#1: Which sign tells you to anticipate some adverse effects caused by wind?

 
 
 
 
The side winds sign is used where vehicles are suddenly exposed to risk from strong winds. Such locations may include exposed bridges or places where vehicles emerge from cuttings in areas which are particularly prone to high winds.

#2: Which instrument panel warning light could indicate that there is a fault within the braking system?

 
 
 
 
Make sure that you understand the meaning of all warning displays on the vehicle instrument panel. An exclamation mark in a circle could indicate that there is a fault within the braking system.

#3: Drinking even a small amount of alcohol is likely to

Image for test question
Any amount of alcohol affects your ability to drive safely. It affects judgement of speed, distance and risk. It reduces co-ordination and slows down reactions. It also gives a false sense of confidence.

Highway code rule: 95.

#4: You are driving past parked cars. You notice a bicycle wheel sticking out between them. What should you do?

Image for test question
You should drive slowly and carefully on streets where there are likely to be pedestrians, cyclists and parked cars. Remember, a bicycle is more difficult to see than other vehicles.

Highway code rules: 152, 211.

#5: Who has priority when a vehicle joins the motorway?

Image for test question
When you join the motorway you will normally approach it from a road on the left (a slip road) or from an adjoining motorway. You should give priority to traffic already on the motorway.

Highway code rule: 259.

#6: A large vehicle pulls out in front of you at a junction. What should you do?

Image for test question
Remember, large vehicles need extra room. Long vehicles may have to use the whole width of the road to make a turn.

Highway code rules: 170, 221.

#7: A police officer in a patrol vehicle is approaching from behind. If the officer wants you to stop, how will he normally attract your attention?

Image for test question
The police will normally attract your attention by flashing blue lights, headlights or sounding their siren or horn. The officer will then direct you to pull over to the side by pointing or using the left indicator.

Highway code rule: 106.

#8: A red cross is displayed above the hard shoulder on a motorway. This signal means:

Image for test question
A red cross or blank sign above the hard shoulder means that you MUST NOT drive on the hard shoulder except in an emergency or breakdown.

Highway code rule: 269.

#9: If traffic lights are not working, you should proceed as if the junction is:

Image for test question
If the traffic lights are not working, treat the situation as you would an unmarked junction and proceed with great care.

Traffic lights not working means that the traffic lights do not light up. An unmarked junction does not have any give way or stop signs and will have no junction lines. In general, no one has priority in this type of junction.

Highway code rule: 176.

#10: What does this sign mean?

Image for test question
The one-way traffic sign requires vehicles to proceed in one direction only.

#11: When you want to overtake a cyclist, you should pass:

Image for test question
Overtake only when it is safe and legal to do so. Give motorcyclists, cyclists and horse riders at least as much room as you would when overtaking a car.

Highway code rules: 163, 212, 213.

#12: How will a school crossing patrol signal you to stop?

Image for test question
You MUST stop when a school crossing patrol shows a 'Stop for children' sign

Highway code rules: 105, 210.

#13: You are in the right-hand lane at traffic lights. You are waiting to turn right. At which of these traffic lights must you not move on?

 
 
 
 
You may proceed in the direction of the green arrow when it, or the full green light shows. If the full green is replaced by an ahead arrow, you must wait until the right-turn arrow shows before you turn right.

Highway code rule: 177.

#14: You have broken down on a motorway. In which direction should you walk to find the nearest emergency telephone?

Image for test question
You should follow the arrows on the posts at the back of the hard shoulder. Always walk on your side of the carriageway.

Highway code rule: 275.

#15: When should you increase the gap between your vehicle and the one in front to more than two seconds?

Image for test question
Large vehicles can block your view. Your ability to see and to plan ahead will be improved if you pull back to increase your separation distance.

If you are following too close, be aware that the driver may not be able to see you in the mirrors.

Pulling back is a good idea to both see and be seen.

Highway code rules: 126, 222.

#16: You are at a road junction, turning into a minor road. There are pedestrians crossing the minor road. What should you do?

Image for test question
When turning at road junctions, you should give way to pedestrians who are already crossing the road into which you are turning.

Highway code rule: 206.

#17: You want to turn right from a one-way street. How should you position yourself?

Image for test question
Well before you turn right from a one-way street you should take up a position in the right-hand lane or in the space marked for traffic turning right. This will show other road users what you intend to do.

Highway code rule: 179.

#18: Before fitting a rear-facing baby seat into a front seat, you must make sure that:

Online Learning for the DVSA Car Test

Continue with this third FREE mock theory test. It has 20 questions and you will see correct answers at the end of the test.

You can take all our mock tests as many times as you need – until you are 100% ready! The test works on your phone, tablet, or computer. You can easily study at home, school, at the library, on the beach, or any place where you have some time to spare.

Each test has random questions from a larger bank of test questions, which means that each test will be slightly different.

Reaching the Perfect Score

If you reach the perfect score of 100% on more than one car test, you are most likely ready for the real thing. But don’t just memorise mock questions and answers. You are more likely to retain facts you truly understand or have studied thoroughly, rather than phrases you have just tried to memorise.

Are These the Real Questions?

DVSA has a bank of more than 1,000 driving car test questions and since they no longer publish the complete set, there is no way of knowing exactly which ones you will get when you take your real test.

Our mock questions are, however, very similar, or even identical, to the actual car theory test.

It is a good idea to always have the Highway Code handy. Read up on mistakes and try to understand why you missed a question. Did you misunderstand the question or answer? Did you read too fast? Or did you simply not know the answer?

Remember, structured learning instead of just memorising is an important key to success.
