When facing a green light at an intersection, you may proceed:

Before proceeding at an intersection, you're always required to yield to traffic already in the intersection. This applies even if you're facing a green light.

Do pedestrians have the right-of-way when crossing at an intersection?

Drivers in Nevada are obliged to yield to pedestrians crossing the road. When approaching an intersection or crosswalk, whether marked or unmarked, use caution and watch both sides of the street for pedestrians. A crosswalk exists anywhere two roads intersect.

What is the penalty for leaving the scene of a crash resulting in serious bodily injury or death?

Drivers in Nevada that are convicted of leaving a crash scene resulting in serious bodily injury will have their license suspended or revoked, receive a fine between $2,000-$10,000, and face imprisonment for between 2-15 years.

What information should you exchange with other involved parties in a car accident?

Exchange your name, address, driver's license information, insurance information and phone number with anyone else involved in the crash. After exchanging information, write down as much information about the crash as possible. This includes weather conditions, road conditions, time of the crash, and how the crash occurred.

What do flashing yellow or amber lights on a school bus mean?

When may you turn right on a red light?

If the turn can be made safely, you may turn right on a red light in Nevada after coming to a complete stop and yielding to any pedestrians/vehicles lawfully proceeding through the intersection. Look for signs that prohibit the turn.

What should you do if you crash into an unattended vehicle and you're unable to locate the owner?

If you crash into an unattended vehicle, you're expected to make a reasonable attempt to locate the owner of the vehicle. If unable to locate the owner, you should instead leave a note in a secure place with your contact information and details regarding the crash. In additon, you should take pictures of the scene (including damage to the other car and their license plate number), and notify your insurance company as well as the nearest police department about the accident. Crashes in Nevada must be reported immediately.

How far away from a school bus loading or unloading passengers do vehicles have to stop?


In Nevada, drivers from both directions have to stop for school buses loading or unloading passengers. School buses use flashing red lights to indicate that the bus is stopped to load or unload school children. Do not proceed until the lights have been turned off. A stop is not required when driving on the opposite side of a divided highway.

Are headsets or earplugs prohibited while driving?

In Nevada, there is no prohibition on wearing headsets while driving. However, you should be very careful about covering your ears entirely as you will miss the visual queues otherwise present in the road environment.

Why must you be prepared to stop when driving behind a school bus and approaching a railroad crossing?

School buses, vehicles carrying passengers for hire, vehicles transporting hazardous material, and vehicles with a normal operating speed of 10 mph or less must stop at all railroad crossings in Nevada. If you are driving behind any of these vehicles, you should be prepared to stop as well.

Texting while driving is:


Texting and the use of any hand-held devices while driving is prohibited for all drivers in Nevada. This is because any such use will severely distract you and increase the risk of a crash. It's recommended that you pull off the road and stop if you need to make a call. Never use a phone when driving in hazardous conditions as you must focus all your attention on driving.

When may you turn left on a red light?

The only time you're permitted to turn left on a red light in Nevada is when turning from a one-way street onto another one-way street. Before turning, yield to any pedestrians/vehicles lawfully proceeding through the intersection and make sure there aren't any signs prohibiting the turn

What does this sign mean?


Making a left turn is prohibited near this sign - this is a ‘No Left Turn’ sign.

You intend to turn left at a traffic light intersection with a red arrow. What does the red arrow indicate?

Which car goes first?


Car A is driving on the terminating road and must yield the right-of-way. Of the two remaining vehicles, B should proceed first as B is driving straight ahead while C is turning across the path of B.

What should you avoid when passing another vehicle?


It can be dangerous to return to your lane too early after passing - always make sure that the passed vehicle is at a safe distance behind you before signaling and returning to the lane.
