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

BThe bus driver is signaling for you to pass
CThere is a hazard on the road ahead

Which passengers have to wear a seat belt?

The driver and front-seat passengers 13 and older
BFront-seat passengers only
CBack-seat passengers only

In Oklahoma, the driver and all front-seat passengers age 13 and older must wear a seatbelt. Violation of the seat belt law is a standard offense. In addition, the child passenger safety law also requires that all children wear an appropriate child restraint. What is appropriate depends on the size, height and weight of the child. For children over 8 and taller than 4 feet 9 inches, the appropriate restraint is a seat belt.

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

display
Before reaching the school bus
B10 feet
C15 feet
D20 feet

Motorists from both directions have to stop for a school bus loading or unloading passengers. School buses in Oklahoma use flashing red lights and/or a stop arm to indicate that the bus is stopped to load or unload school children. Do not proceed until the school bus has started driving again, the lights have stopped flashing, the stop arm has been retracted or the driver signals for motorists to proceed. A stop is not required when driving on an opposite roadway or when stopped in a loading zone by a controlled-access highway where crossing is prohibited for pedestrians.

Which of the following is a 4-point violation?

Failure to stop for a school bus loading or unloading children
BFollowing improperly or too closely
CFailure to yield right-of-way

Oklahoma has a point system to keep unsafe drivers off the roads. Failure to stop for a school bus loading or unloading children is a 4-point violation. Following improperly or too closely is a 2-point violation. Failure to yield right-of-way is a 2-point violation. Accumulating 10 or more points within any five-year period will cause your driver's license to be suspended. 2 points will be deducted for every year in which there are no pointable traffic violations.

What should you do before driving in snowy conditions?

Remove snow and ice from windows, lights, and mirrors
BLet the engine warm up for at least 40 minutes
CCheck your tire tread depth

Removing snow and ice will not only make it easier for you to see the road ahead. It will also make it easier for other road users to see you. While it can be beneficial to let your engine warm up before driving, it's unnecessary to let it warm up for 40 minutes. Checking your tire tread depth is important, but it is something you should do when driving in all weather conditions and not just snowy conditions.

When are studded tires permitted?

AAt all times
Between November 1 and April 1

Studded tires have studs embedded in the tread that provide added traction. They are permitted in Oklahoma between November 1 to April 1.

BYes, if the gross weight exceeds 5,000 lbs
CNo

The added weight of the trailer to your vehicle can drastically increase the distance needed to come to a full stop. For this reason, most states have laws regarding independent braking on trailers over a certain gross vehicle weight (GVW). In Oklahoma, the gross weight limit is 3,000 lbs.

What is the maximum speed limit on county roads unless otherwise posted?

This law also applies towreckers, road maintenance vehicles and any stationary vehicle displaying hazard lights.
