Driving test question?

When taking your driving test and you stop at a stop sign but you can’t see the oncoming traffic, are you allowed to stop at the line first and then pull up safely to where you can see. Without getting marked?

    Yes feel free to creep up so you can see after stopping at the line. (could be a bicycle or something moving down a sidewalk etc when you see that is clear ease up so you can safely assess traffic.

    A STOP sign means several things. 

    1.  You are OBLIGATED to STOP before the sign, not after the sign.  You should stop before the line on the road if there is one.  Now that you've satisfied the most important part of its meaning, 

    2.  You MUST next YIELD to the right of way of any cross traffic.  That means vehicles on the street;  bicycles on the street or on the sidewalk; and pedestrians.  You can creep forward looking for cross traffic.  When all who have the RIGHT OF WAY are gone, 

    3.  You may safely enter the street and turn or go across it, if that's an option.

    Yes, but you must stop a second time after you pull up.

    You do what is legal (stop) and then do what is safe (pull forward very slowly)

    Those places are pretty rare, usually they put traffic lights up if you can't see. There shouldn't be anything like that on the test. But yes, you can spend as much time as you need until its safe to go, as long as you make a full stop.
