Correct answer is 4th. Welcome to India.

While Driving Motorcycle, arm signals be given by

Left Hand only
Right Hand Only
Not neccessary
As per Drivers convenience

I thought 4th was correct answer but its 2nd.

I scored 70% and passed the test.

and i thought we have "indicators" for that! or don't we? how it could be that everyone forgot about indicators! guys Indicators are used for indicating the turn. keep your hands on bike.

and that Cattle sign is same through out the world. it is to warn you about Cattle crossing the road.

Yep, that's right - however, I don't think safety4all was asking the question in that context; he was basically justifying the right hand usage using the car scenario.

Isn't it? Given these days, forget the signals, no consideration given to their or others life on the road; however, it's applicable not just for motorcycles but all kind of vehicles plying on the road - especially lorries!

Yes, not just for two wheelers but even for four wheelers, hand signals are adviced as per law (sadly, it has to catch up the technological advancement such as turn indicators)!
Surprisingly, hand signals are still in use even in developed countries. Basically, right hands are used on left-side traffic (like ours, UK) and left hands are used on right-side traffic (like US, Germany).

It will be one massive step for encouraging road user discipline.

Certain schools already include these (albeit not extensively) under civics and social studies, but if made universal to all schools will really help bring some sanity for next generations.

Relax, a full fledged license is not given at once. Even the real learners license test that I took several years back had much more questions than the 6/10 used as pass criteria in the link. (Actually, some still manage to get a license even without giving any tests; few others don't even think a license is needed. What do you say for them?)

Funny, but there are such obsolete laws do exist a plenty. Here's another one: The headlamps should have either a black dot at the center or a black stripe covering the top half. The modern headlamps as well as the bulbs themselves sport shading to prevent direct shine (however, even with reflectors they are powerful enough to melt your cornea). Putting these black dots doesn't help much and the black stripe on top half only hinders the low beam as high beams shine via lower half!

Thumbs up Re: Online Driving Test (in English & Marathi). Try it, and educate yourself on the r

A very nice effort, though my only concern is that the questions are too simple. They should be slightly more challenging. Not Einstein level but something more tougher than this. And the number of questions should also be more. However, this is still a great way to educate people and newbie drivers.

I gave the test today and scored 90% in the first attempt. I didn't have a problem of correct answers getting marked as incorrect, so I guess that most of the bugs/wrong answers have been ironed out.

Thanks to Mr Sameer Shaikh for taking the initiative.

for the first time in my life i scored a 100 percent and that too without cheating and furthermore on my first attempt, not bad i guess, this is a good means for getting some road related iq in a fun manner in stark contrast to the test we have to give at the regional rto while getting a license ( some would know who didnt hired the services of a pimp for procuring a driving license) anyway thanks for forwarding a fun link.

Its a real good way to educate new drivers. Took the test and got 80% in my 1st attempt. But one question really confused me:

While Driving Motorcycle, arm signals be given by:
-Left Hand only
-Right Hand Only
-Not necessary
-As per Drivers convenience

I thought "Not Necessary" was the right answer. But the correct answer was "Right Hand Only" and as asr245 rightly pointed out, it is not safe practice. what are signal indicators for????

Can you Distinguish between Red Signal and Green Signal?

About 13 million people in India are Color Blind and they often can't see the difference between a red and a green light.

Are you Color Blind?
Here is a short test to find out!
Click here LLRtest | Facebook

Color Blindness, medically known as Daltonism or deuteranopia is a common malady, especially among men. Color vision deficiency is defined as the inability to perceive differences between some or all colors that other people can easily distinguish. Most often it’s genetic, but it can be caused by other reasons.

This handicap has always been ignored. But it shouldn't be. There are an estimated 10 million colorblind people driving cars in the US and they often can't see the difference between a red and a green light.

Hah! I passed too. I scored 70%, so its just pass! Could not take a screen shot as i could not find the paint application on my new Win 7 laptop. But i passed and I am happy about that. I remember when I was given the sign booklet by the RTO when I went for my LL long time ago. Its amazing how we take all those signs for granted! Well thanks to this post, I am going to buy a new road sign book tomorrow and just browse through it. It's good to know them anyways!

Cheers!

Excellent link and a wonderful way to learn the rules for newbies. I got 70% in the first attempt though I should admit that it made me a bit nervous with a few questions. Thanks for sharing this link.

This is a nice site. The test is short and sweet. For all those guys who enjoyed this, I would suggest you to register and try the AP government transport department's LLR practice and mock test site, Welcome to LLR Practice & Mock Test -APTD. This provides the full list of questions used by transportation department categorized into various sections along with their explanations.
