NYS DMV Test Answers
Answer A to this DMV practice permit test NY sample question suggests that child restrains are required for all children who are under the age of eight and are less than 4’9”. This sounds right, let's go through all other options we were provided.
Answer B to the DMV NY permit test practice question states that all children for whom the driver of the car is the parent or guardian must wear child restrains. Does it make any difference in terms of safety whether the driver behind the wheel is your parent or your friend? It does not and thus should not affect the need for child restraints.
Answer C to the DMV NY practice test question tells us that all children who are seated in the front seat require child restrains. Does this look right to you? What if the child is larger than a small adult, does the child still need child restraints or would is be safe to use a regular seat belt?
Answer D to this free DMV practice permit test NY sample question suggests that all children who are under the age of six when air bags are not available. You should know that in most cases, air bags don't even deploy when you don't have a seat belt or a safety belt on.
