Question: I have a few more questions that I can't seem to find the answers to in my book. 1 - If you are preparing for a right turn, should you position yourself closer to the center of the lane you are in, or closer to the right curb? 2- You are at a green light, but the traffic is heavy. Are you allowed to enter the intersection to prepare for a left turn, or do you have to wait? In my town I see people go all the time into the intersection and when traffic clears or when the light turns yellow they turn. 3- If you have a solid line, is it absolutely no passing, or can you pass if an obstruction or condition requires it? 4- If you hear a siren but don't see it, should you get over, or wait until you can see it? My book doesn't really say, one site I read says pull over and stop as soon as you hear it. But I would think that would be wrong as the sirens could be coming from anywhere. Thanks again! Thanks for your answers. That is what I was thinking for 2, but wanted to make sure. As for 3, it confused me a little. I guess I am thinking of a situation where a car is parked, or a mailman is delivering, or something like that. Everything makes sense now, thanks a bunch! Thanks for looking that up. My book says when turning right you should turn as close to the right curb as possible, but it doesn't really say what to do when preparing to turn. I found a site online that is supposed to test based on your states manual. So I checked all the answers with my book to verify, but there were a few I wasn't sure about. This was one of them. It says that when you are going to turn right you should prepare by turning toward the center of your lane and then proceeding to turn right. And then my manual says try to turn as close to the right curb as possible. I think I would do OK, but it seems like there are so many questions that have answers that could be right, but the wordy is tricky. Thanks again for your help, I really appreciate it!

Number 1, according to the traffic handbook of Illinois states that you need to remain as close to the curb during a right hand turn as possible. This is what I assumed it would be but now I have some back up on that. It doesn't really make sense to go into the middle of the lane because cars behind you could try to get around you while you're slowing down to make the turn and you'd end up hitting them if you whipped into the center of the lane. Number 2 is you have to wait. People don't but if you look around, you'll see a lot of signs saying "Do not block intersection" because blocking the intersection (pulling out even though you're not sure when you can go) will get you pulled over with a hefty fine if you're caught because you hold up traffic and if the light changes, you're going to have to run it or sit in the middle of the intersection, blocking everyone else. A double solid line is no passing. period. A solid line on one side and dashed on the other means the car on the dashed line side can pass if they go the speed limit and there's no on coming traffic Number 4- according to North Carolina and New Hampshire, if you hear a siren, pull over. Since you can't find it in Ohio (I couldn't either) I'd just assume it holds true unless you find otherwise. Good luck on your test!

A lot of it is common sense. Just be sure you know your road signs, and what to do if you go into a skid (yep they ask about that!) If you have a book, usually the dmv will have one you can read to study for the test, use that and it should help you out. Im sure you will do just fine :) If you dont pass it dont fret, I can tell you I failed mine the first time, but passed it the next day. Good luck :)

Go to the back of the drivers hand book and study all of the questions in appendix B, a lot of those are on the test!
