At the beginning of the test it mentions that they are looking for safe conscientious people.
That really should tell you all you need to know about the test. You want your answers to line up with what a safe driver would do.
They are not looking for risk takers. There are way too many car accidents over here in IQ from people not paying attention while driving. So far no one (to my knowledge) has been killed.
So knowing the above, when the test asks you...
When coming to a stop light and the light is turning yellow, do you:
A. Speed up to get through the light.
B. Coast through the intersection at your current speed.
C. Slow down & stop for the light.
Correct answer is going to be what a safe conscientious person would do...
C. Slow down and stop for the light.
Once again they are NOT looking for risk takers. On the rest of the test your answers need to be consistent with what a safe conscientious person would do.
I personally am a safe driver which my home state recognizes with a neat little sticker on the back of my DL for my renewal.
