Mock Test #6 – Study Help for Your Theory Test

Mock Test #6 - Study Help

#1: Why should you keep well back when following this lorry?

Image for test question
Your ability to see and to plan ahead will be improved if you pull back to increase your separation distance. Keeping well back also allows the driver of the lorry to see you in his mirrors.

Highway code rule: 222.

#2: You are driving along a wet road. How can you tell if your vehicle is aquaplaning?

Image for test question
If the steering becomes unresponsive, it probably means that water is preventing the tyres from gripping the road. Ease off the accelerator and slow down gradually.

Highway code rule: 227.

#3: What does this sign mean?

Image for test question
Other danger ahead. The sign conveys no specific message on its own. It is always used together with a supplementary plate, describing the hazard.

#4: To overtake a vehicle ahead you need to enter an area designed to divide traffic. The area is surrounded by a solid white line. What should you do?

Image for test question
You MUST NOT overtake if you would have to enter an area designed to divide traffic, if it is surrounded by a solid white line.

Highway code rules: 130, 165.

#5: This arm signal means that the driver in front intends to:

Image for test question
For a left turn, extend the right hand at shoulder level, palm facing forward, and rotate it in an anti-clockwise direction. Use an arm signal to emphasise or reinforce your signal lights if necessary.

Highway code rule: 103.

#6: You are on a motorway. There are red flashing lights above every lane. In this situation you must:

Image for test question
When red lamps are flashing above your lane, you MUST STOP unless you can move safely to a lane where red signals are not showing. When red lamps are flashing above all lanes, you MUST NOT go beyond the signal in any lane.

Highway code rule: 258.

#7: You arrive at an incident. A motorcyclist is unconscious. After warning other traffic, your FIRST priority is the casualty’s

Image for test question
Remember the letters D R A B C.

If the person is not talking and the airway may be blocked, then place one hand under the chin and lift the chin up and forward. If they are still having difficulty with breathing then gently tilt the head back. Once the airway is open check breathing for up to 10 seconds.

Highway code rule: 283.

#8: You may use front fog lights:

Image for test question
You MUST use headlights when visibility is seriously reduced, generally when you cannot see for more than 100 metres (328 feet). You may also use front or rear fog lights but you MUST switch them off when visibility improves.

Highway code rules: 226, 236.

#9: If you need to use arm signals, how would you signal a right turn?

Image for test question
For a right turn, extend the right hand at shoulder level with palm facing forward.

Use an arm signal to emphasise or reinforce your signal lights if necessary.

Highway code rule: 103.

#10: What does this sign mean?

Image for test question
Water course alongside road.

#11: When you are towing a trailer on a motorway your speed must not exceed?

Image for test question
National speed limits for cars towing caravans or trailers are: 30 mph (48 km/h) in built-up areas, 50 mph (80 km/h) on single carriageways, and 60 mph (96 km/h) on dual carriageways and motorways.

Highway code rules: 124, 125.

#12: What does this sign mean?

Image for test question
The sign is an advance warning of tunnels. If the tunnel is controlled by wig-wag signals, the sign is supplemented by a plate.

#13: Your overall stopping distance will be much longer when driving:

Image for test question
In wet weather, stopping distances will be at least double those required for stopping on dry roads. This is because your tyres have less grip on the road.

Highway code rules: 126, 227.

#14: Which of the following may apply when dealing with this hazard?

Image for test question
In winter, streams are likely to flood. In extremely cold weather, they could ice over. Assess the situation carefully before you drive through. Be aware that water may hide a depth gauge.

After this hazard, test your brakes at the first safe opportunity by pushing gently on the brake pedal to make sure that they work. If they are not fully effective, gently apply light pressure while driving slowly. This will help to dry them out.

Highway code rule: 121.

#15: Under normal circumstances you should not drive on the hard shoulder of a motorway. When are you allowed to use it?

Image for test question
In areas where an Active Traffic Management (ATM) Scheme is in force, the hard shoulder may be used as a running lane. You will know when you can use this because a speed limit sign will be shown above all open lanes, including the hard shoulder.

Highway code rule: 269.

#16: You are on a motorway. Traffic ahead is suddenly braking sharply. What should you do to warn traffic behind you?

Image for test question
Hazard warning lights may be used when your vehicle is stationary and temporarily obstructing traffic. You may also use them when you are on a motorway or unrestricted dual carriageway and you need to warn drivers behind you of a hazard or obstruction ahead. Only use them for long enough to ensure that your warning has been observed.

Highway code rule: 116.

#17: Travelling in neutral or with the clutch pressed down is known as:

Image for test question
This term describes a vehicle travelling in neutral or with the clutch pressed down. It can seriously reduce driver control.

Highway code rule: 122.

#18: There is a puffin crossing ahead. It is showing a green signal. Which colour follows the green signal?

Image for test question
Toucan, puffin and equestrian crossings are similar to pelican crossings, but there is no flashing amber phase. The light sequence for traffic at these three crossings is the same as at traffic lights.

If the signal-controlled crossing is not working, proceed with extreme caution.

Highway code rule: 199.

#19: How should you react when you see drivers who appear to be inexperienced?

Image for test question
Learners and inexperienced drivers may not be so skilful at anticipating and responding to events. Be particularly patient with learner drivers and young drivers.

Highway code rule: 217.

#20: Which sign tells you that the dual carriageway ends ahead?

 
 
 
 
End of dual carriageway. The sign indicates the resumption of two-way traffic on a single carriageway road after a length of dual carriageway.

Study Help with a 6th Mock Test

Like previous mock tests, it has 20 questions from a larger pool. Answers are found at the end of the test.

Our Mission is to Prepare You Well

Our mission is to offer free study help and prepare all drivers to be safe on the road.

But we can all help. We strongly believe that parents and teachers should engage more in how to improve the skills of young drivers. It will make our roads safer for everyone.

Learning is a Slow Process

Learning the rules of the road and safe driving techniques is a slow process. Most of your driving skills will come with experience. But without a thorough knowledge of the basics, experience can also lead you astray. You may think you know what to do in certain situations, but in reality, you don’t. Therefore, knowledge is extremely important.

When you have decided to get a driving licence, use our study help and take your studies seriously. Don’t study just to pass the examination. Study to be the best driver you can be.

Should You Wait to Get Your Driving Licence?

Car accidents are a leading cause of death for teenagers in Great Britain and in many other countries. This may be why teenagers today wait longer before they get their licence to drive. Driving is not the central focus like it was 20 years ago. But in suburban and rural areas, it can still be important to get the privilege to drive at an early age.

In England, Scotland and Wales every new driver must pass a theory test, then a practical road test before they can get a full driving licence. The minimum age to hold the full car licence is 17 years, or 16 years if you can claim a mobility benefit.

We don’t believe that age is a main problem when it comes to road safety; things like maturity, attitude and knowledge are.
