Cue the flashing rainbow ceiling lights, you're about to go for a ride in the "Cash Cab."

The popular New York City-based trivia show, which aired more than 200 episodes on Discovery from 2005 to 2012, is now in the middle of airing its second rebooted season.

Think you'd be able to make it through "Cash Cab" with host/driver Ben Bailey without shouting out the window for help? Try your luck here, with actual questions from the series, and a few that might appear in upcoming episodes. 

We'll make it a little easier on you, though -- Bailey's three-strikes rule doesn't apply. 

"Cash Cab" quizzes New Yorkers during new episodes airing every Friday at 7 p.m.
