did you guys take the natl driver's test?

I got 90% or two wrong. I don't even agree with the answers to the two I got wrong. They should have at least 50 questions for such a test to have any reliable results imho....http://www.nationaldriverstest.com

A lot of the answers to those questions can differ between certain situations... I believe online tests for Drivers License (I know this is different) Should be completely banned in the United States... Oh well... I got a few wrong as well, but mainly because I chose the correct answers

I thought the same thing, then I remembered that our cars are just under 15ft long so I figured it out based on car lengths.

95% - Trick question - When driving in fog you should use your a) Fog Lights Only B) High Beams C) Low Beams. I debated the answer on that one and changed it between Low Beams and Fog Lights Only. My rationale for picking Fog Lights Only was that in a fog you want the light to be low and below the fog. The more light you have in a fog the more the light illuminates the fog and makes it hard for you to see. I guess their reasoning for C being correct is that not all cars have fog lights.

That wasn't a trick question. Fog Lights ONLY can't be the correct answer, becase you're supposed to have your headlights on when using fog lights. Answer C then is the only fully correct answer.

I had a previous car that disabled the low beams when the fogs were switched on. I don't remember which car it was. Could have been my E46....but I honestly don't remember. That is why I had trouble with this question.

95%. The answer to this question depends on the state, I s'pose...

8. You may pass on the right of another vehicle when:

A. When traveling on a multi-lane highway carrying two or more lanes of traffic in the same direction

B. The other vehicle is making or about to make a left turn, when a lane is provided to pass on the right

C. Both answers are correct



Correct answer was C. I chose B.
