You are following another vehicle. In North Carolina, what is the recommended following distance?

A At least two seconds

The North Carolina Driver's Handbook recommends the "two-second rule," a following distance of at least two seconds behind the vehicle in front of you. You can measure your following distance by noting when the vehicle in front of you passes some stationary object and then counting the seconds that elapse before you reach the same object. If driving conditions are poor or traffic is heavy, you should increase your following distance.

In the midst of finishing up learning on the older app, it told me to download this newer version. However, I didn’t want to have to go through all those questions again, so I simply finished reviewing on the old app and took the practice test on this newer app. Upon completion of the tests, it would not let me move forward or see my score! How should I know if I have done well enough to pass if I cannot see my own score?
