When are you allowed to use hazard warning lights?CorrectIncorrect
You mustn’t use hazard warning lights while moving, except to warn traffic behind when you slow suddenly on a motorway or unrestricted dual carriageway.
Never use hazard warning lights to excuse dangerous or illegal parking.
What should you do if you have to stop while you’re going through a congested tunnel?CorrectIncorrect
It’s important to keep a safe distance from the vehicle in front at all times. This still applies in congested tunnels, even if you’re moving very slowly or have stopped. If the vehicle in front breaks down, you may need room to manoeuvre past it.
You arrive at the scene of a crash where someone is bleeding heavily from a wound in their arm. Nothing is embedded in the wound. What could you do to help?CorrectIncorrect
If possible, lay the casualty down. Protect yourself from exposure to blood and, when you’re sure there’s nothing in the wound, apply firm pressure using clean material.
You’re at an incident. What could you do to help an unconscious casualty?CorrectIncorrect
If a casualty is unconscious, you need to check that they’re breathing normally. Look for chest movements, look and listen for breathing, and feel for breath on your cheek
A casualty isn’t breathing normally and needs CPR. At what rate should you press down and release on the centre of their chest?CorrectIncorrect
If a casualty isn’t breathing normally, cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) may be needed to maintain circulation. Place two hands on the centre of the chest and press down hard and fast – around 5–6 centimetres and about twice a second.
Following a collision, a person has been injured. What would be a warning sign for shock?CorrectIncorrect
The effects of shock may not be immediately obvious. Warning signs to look for include
• a rapid pulse
• pale grey skin
• rapid shallow breathing.
An injured person has been placed in the recovery position. They’re unconscious but breathing normally. What else should be done?CorrectIncorrect
After a casualty has been placed in the recovery position, make sure their airway remains open and monitor their condition until medical help arrives. Where possible, don’t move a casualty unless there’s further danger.
An injured motorcyclist is lying unconscious in the road. The traffic has stopped and there’s no further danger. What could you do to help?CorrectIncorrect
If someone has been injured, the sooner proper medical attention is given the better. Ask someone to phone for help or do it yourself. An injured person should only be moved if they’re in further danger. An injured motorcyclist’s helmet shouldn’t be removed unless it’s essential.
What should you do if you see a large box fall from a lorry onto the motorway?CorrectIncorrect
Lorry drivers can be unaware of objects falling from their vehicles. If you see something fall onto a motorway, look to see if the driver pulls over. If they don’t stop, don’t attempt to retrieve the object yourself. Pull onto the hard shoulder near an emergency telephone and report the hazard.
You’re going through a long tunnel. What will warn you of congestion or an incident ahead?CorrectIncorrect
Follow the instructions given by the signs or by tunnel officials. In congested tunnels, a minor incident can soon turn into a major one, with serious or even fatal results.
