  • Get a lot of rest before you start.
  • Do not take any drugs that can make you drowsy.
  • Do not drive long hours.
  • Take regular rest stops, even if you are not tired. Stop for coffee or a soft drink every 100 miles or every two hours.
  • Keep shifting your eyes from one part of the road to another. Look at objects near and far, left and right, and check the speedometer.
  • Roll your window down to get some fresh air.

If none of the above suggestions seem to help you stay awake, the best thing to do is pull off the highway at the first rest stop. A short nap may be enough to refresh you.

  • Following too close.
  • Failure to yield to emergency vehicles.

#11. You must make sure that you have enough space to pass another vehicle on a two-lane road:

Whenever signs or road markings permit you to pass, you must always make sure you have time and room to get all the way in front of the vehicle you are passing without creating danger for vehicles coming toward you and before you reach a no-passing zone.

The driver should stop their vehicle in a safe location off the highway or off the main traveled portion of the roadway as soon as practical. After the car is stopped drivers should put the car in park and remain in the vehicle.

When approaching a school bus that is picking up or dropping off passengers, you must come to a complete stop before reaching the bus, regardless of your direction of travel.

You are not required to stop for a school bus on a divided roadway when traveling in the opposite direction. A divided roadway is one in which the road is separated by physical barriers such as a fence, curbing or separation of the pavement. Roadway striping by itself does not constitute a physical separation of the roadway.

#18. Which signal means you must come to a complete stop, yield to cross traffic or pedestrians, and then proceed when it is safe?

A flashing red light has the same meaning as a stop sign. You must come to a full stop, then proceed with caution when the roadway is clear.


#19. This sign tells you:

No Left Turn.

You must not make a left turn at this intersection.


#20. Which is the background color on a road sign like this?

Construction and maintenance signs are used to notify drivers of possible danger in or near work areas. Most signs used in highway and street work areas are diamond-shaped. Orange is the basic color.


#21. Locked wheel skids are usually caused by:

This type of skid is usually caused by braking too hard at a high rate of speed and locking the wheels. Ease off the brake if the wheels lock and the car begins to skid.


#22. What can help to reduce the amount of glare from oncoming vehicles at night?

If the high beams of an oncoming car are not dimmed, avoid looking directly at the bright lights. Glance toward the right side of the road, then look ahead to determine the position of the other vehicle. Keep doing this until you have passed the other vehicle.


#23. Parking 21 feet from the nearest rail of a railroad crossing:

It is illegal to park within 50 feet of the nearest rail of a railroad crossing.


#24. You have been forced to drive through deep water. What is the first thing you should do afterwards?

Check your brakes after leaving the water to see if they will stop the car. If the brakes are wet, they may suddenly grab or pull to one side. Dry them by accelerating slowly while gently holding down the brake pedal.

This is a yield sign.

Three-sided red yield signs require that you yield the right-of-way to cross traffic or to merging traffic.

Arizona Graduated Driver Licensing Law

Arizona has a Graduated Driver Licensing program to help young drivers get their initial driving experience under conditions that involve lower risks. With a step-by-step program they are introduced in stages to more complex driving situations.

The program has three phases:

    Graduated Instruction Permit
    Graduated Driver License (Conditional License)
    Full and Unrestricted Driver License

Instruction Permit Requirements for Teens

  Minimum age is 15 years and 6 months

To be eligible for a Graduated Instruction Permit, a teenager must be at least 15 years and 6 months old.

  Proof of identity, age, and legal presence is needed

The teen and parent must provide necessary application documents. These include documents that show full name and birth date, like a birth certificate or passport, social security number, and proof of Arizona address .

For teens under 18 years, the application for an instruction permit or driver license must be signed by at least one adult, usually a parent or legal guardian. The adult will be responsible for any negligence or willful misconduct when the teen is driving.

  Must pass vision exam and the written test

Before the application is approved, a teenager must pass a vision test and the written test.

  Practice driving with the Graduated Instruction Permit

After passing the test, MVD issues a temporary Instruction Permit, also known as a Learner’s Permit.

The permit allows a teenager to practice driving together with a license driver who is at least 21 years old.

When you practice driving, you must always have the permit in your possession and the supervising driver must always occupy the front seat next to you.
