Mock Test #6 – Study Help for Your Theory Test

Mock Test #6 - Study Help

#1: Your brakes have become wet. What should you do to dry them?

Image for test question
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.

#2: You are the first to arrive at the scene of a crash. An injured person is lying in a busy road. What is the FIRST thing you should do to help?

Image for test question
Warn other traffic. Further collisions and fire are the main dangers following a crash.

Highway code rule: 283.

#3: 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.

#4: Your vehicle has anti-lock brakes. If you need to stop in an emergency, how should you apply the footbrake?

Image for test question
In the case of an emergency, apply the footbrake immediately and firmly.

Highway code rule: 120.

#5: You need glasses to read traffic signs and vehicle number plates. When must you wear your glasses?

Image for test question
If you need to wear glasses (or contact lenses) to do drive, you must wear them at all times.

Highway code rule: 92.

#6: Skidding is most likely to happen when driving:

Image for test question
A skid usually occurs when there is not enough traction to keep the tyres rolling. On a wet road water can build up between the tyres and the road surface, forcing the tyres to ride on a film of water. On gravel and dirt roads tyres could also loose traction. To avoid getting into a skid, adjust your speed to the conditions, then look well ahead so that you have plenty of time to react smoothly.

Highway code rule: 119.

#7: 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.

#8: What kind of vehicles will be marked with a panel like this?

Image for test question
Certain tank vehicles carrying dangerous goods must display hazard information panels. The panel illustrated is for flammable liquid.

Highway code rule: 284.

#9: After entering a motorway you should initially:

Image for test question
Enter and remain in the left-hand lane long enough to adjust to the speed of traffic before considering overtaking.

Highway code rule: 259.

#10: The road is wet. Why might a motorcyclist steer round drain covers on a bend?

Image for test question
Motorcyclists and cyclists may suddenly need to avoid uneven road surfaces and obstacles such as drain covers or oily, wet or icy patches on the road. Give them plenty of room and pay particular attention to any sudden change of direction they may have to make.

Highway code rule: 213.

#11: 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.

#12: What does this sign mean?

Image for test question
Water course alongside road.

#13: Which of the following is a likely effect of drinking alcohol?

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.

#14: When you want to make a left turn at a junction with a steady red light, you should:

Image for test question
A red traffic signal means Stop. Wait behind the stop line on the carriageway.

Highway code rules: 175, 176, 109.

#15: 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.

Image for test question
When passing animals, drive slowly. Be particularly careful of horse riders and horse-drawn vehicles especially when overtaking. Always pass wide and slowly.

Highway code rule: 215.

#19: 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.

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.
