Not enough to pass :-(

Ouch! While you were on a roll there for a few questions, you didn’t pass this time. But I know this test, and I think you’ll pass next time. Really.

1. When riding through a curve, you should:
Always ride in the right portion of the lane.
Always ride in the left portion of the lane.
Be flexible about your lane position.

Every curve is different, so there is no single best lane position for riding in all curves. Be prepared to change your lane position as road, traffic, and weather conditions change.

2. When it starts to rain, it is usually best to:
Ride in the center of the lane.
Ride in the tire tracks left by cars.
Pull to the side of the road until the rain stops.

When it starts to rain, the oily strip down the center of a lane is especially hazardous. Avoid this danger by riding in the tire tracks left by cars. The left tire track is often safest, but this can vary.

3. To make it easier to be seen by other motorists, you should:
Wear brightly-colored clothing while riding.
Wear darkly-colored clothing while riding.
Wave your arms while riding.

Wearing brightly-colored clothing while riding will make it easier for others on the road to see you. This is true regardless of the time of day.

4. A flat front tire is especially dangerous because:
The front tire affects your steering, which also affects your balance.
The front tire being flat will disable the front brake.
The front tire being flat will prevent you from accelerating.

A flat front tire is especially dangerous because it interferes with your ability to steer, which is essential to keeping your balance. If steering begins to feel heavy, it is possible that you have a flat front tire.

5. The key to making a quick turn is to:
Shift your weight quickly.
Turn the handlebars quickly.
Get your motorcycle to lean quickly.

The key to making an evasive maneuver is to get your motorcycle to quickly lean in the direction you wish to turn. The sharper the turn, the more it must lean.

6. As you consume more alcohol, your ability to safely ride:
Stays the same.

The skills a person needs to ride safely decrease as the amount of alcohol consumed increases. If you have consumed alcohol in any amount, it is safest not to ride your motorcycle.

7. Of the following, it is most important to flash your brake light when:
Someone is following you too closely.
You will be slowing suddenly.
There is a stop sign ahead.

Because a motorcycle's brake light is not as noticeable as the brake lights of a car, it is usually a good idea to flash your brake light when slowing or stopping so others will be more likely to notice that you are decelerating. This is particularly important if you are slowing down more quickly than others might expect.

8. Riding gloves should be made of:
Any soft material.

To provide maximum grip and protection, riding gloves should be made of leather or a similar durable material.

9. If you have to ride over an object, you should:
Increase your speed.
Lean your motorcycle.
Slow down.

If you cannot avoid riding over an obstacle, you should approach it at as close to a 90-degree angle as possible. Slow down, make sure your motorcycle is straight, rise slightly off of your seat, and roll on the throttle just before contact.

10. You should conduct a safety inspection of your motorcycle:
Before every ride.
Every week.
Once a month.

You should always conduct a thorough safety inspection of your motorcycle before you ride. A small technical issue on a motorcycle can be more dangerous than a small technical issue on a car.

11. The best way to stop quickly is to:
Use only your front brake.
Use only your rear brake.
Use both brakes at the same time.

To stop quickly, apply controlled pressure to both the front and rear brakes at the same time.

12. There may be less traction available for braking when:
A motorcycle is leaning.
A motorcycle is straight up and down.
A motorcycle is on dry pavement.

Any time a motorcycle is leaning, such as in a turn or curve, there is less traction available for braking. Both brakes may still be used while a motorcycle is turning, but it must be done with great care.

13. Of the following, which is not a reason to keep a cushion of space between your motorcycle and the vehicle in front of you?
It allows you more time to respond to hazards.
It prevents you from finding an escape route.
It provides space to maneuver your motorcycle.

Maintaining an adequate space cushion ensures that you will have time to respond if another driver makes a mistake. A cushion of space also allows you the space you need to safely maneuver your motorcycle.

14. The best way to help others see your motorcycle is to:
Use your headlight.
Maintain eye contact.
Wave at drivers.

The best thing to do to help others see your motorcycle is to keep your headlight on at all times. Motorcycles sold in the United States after 1978 automatically have the headlight activated while running, but be sure that the headlight works properly before every ride.

15. Where should you position your motorcycle when entering a curve?
The outside of the curve
The inside of the curve
Wherever traffic and road conditions require

All curves are different. When taking a curve, choose a lane position that is appropriate for conditions and adjust as needed.

16. Before starting a turn, a motorcyclist should change gears to:
Prevent a change in power in the middle of the turn.
Be able to keep both hands on the handle grips during the turn.
Prevent the motorcycle from slowing down.

It is best to change gears before starting a turn. Shifting gears while in the turn can cause a sudden change in power to the rear wheel, causing a skid. If you must change gears while in a turn, change gears smoothly to best prevent skidding.

17. Whichever style of helmet you choose, you will get the most protection by ensuring that your helmet:
Fits snugly.
Is clean.
Looks cool.

You will get the maximum protection from your helmet if it meets U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and state standards, fits snugly all the way around, and has no obvious defects.

18. What does this sign mean?
Yield to other drivers.
A stop sign is ahead.

Warning signs are yellow with black lettering or symbols and provide important information to motorists about upcoming road conditions. This sign warns that a stop sign is ahead.

19. To control a motorcycle well, you should:
Use your arms to hold yourself up.
Keep your knees against the gas tank.
Sit so your arms are straight when reaching for the handlebars.

When riding, you should be seated so you can use your arms to steer rather than to hold yourself up. Your elbows should be slightly bent when you hold the handgrips. Keep your knees against the gas tank to help maintain your balance.

20. When riding in a group, riders should:
All maintain safe following distances.
Follow each other as closely as possible.
Not worry about distances between members.

When riding in a group, it is generally best to travel in a staggered formation. This formation allows riders to remain in close ranks while still maintaining safe following distances.

21. What type of footwear is the best for motorcycle riders?
Leather boots

Leather boots provide the best degree of protection when riding. They should be high and sturdy enough to cover and support your ankles.

22. When riding a motorcycle, you should:
Always wear a jacket.
Only wear a jacket at night.
Only wear a jacket if it is cold outside.

You should always wear a sturdy jacket with long sleeves when riding a motorcycle, even if the weather is warm.

23. A headlight:
Is a good way to help others see you.
Often distracts other drivers.
Attracts unwanted attention.

The single most effective thing you can do to help other road users see your motorcycle is to have your headlight on at all times while riding, even during the day.

24. The proper position within a lane should:
Increase your line of sight.
Place you in other drivers’ blind spots.
Encourage others to share your lane.

A properly chosen lane position should provide a number of benefits, including an increased ability to see others and to be seen. It should help you avoid wind blasts, other drivers' blind spots, and surface hazards. Your lane position should discourage other drivers from trying to share your lane and provide you with an escape route, should a hazard arise.

25. Which of the following is not a factor in determining a person's blood alcohol content (BAC)?
The amount of alcohol consumed
How quickly the alcohol is consumed
How often the person consumes alcohol

The main factors that determine a person's blood alcohol content (BAC) are the person's body weight, how much alcohol is consumed, and how quickly the alcohol was consumed. It is always safest to not ride after consuming alcohol in any amount.

26. When passing a row of parked cars, you should:
Ride on the left side of the lane.
Ride wherever you are most comfortable.
Ride in the right portion of the lane.

When passing a row of parked cars, the left portion of the lane is generally safest for travel. This position will help you avoid hazards like doors being opened, people stepping out from between the parked cars, and cars pulling out of parking spaces. Always be ready to adjust your lane position to respond to changing road and traffic conditions.

27. The best lane position for a motorcycle:
Is in the left part of a lane, next to the centerline.
Is in the right part of a lane, next to the curb.
Can vary depending on road and traffic conditions.

There is no single lane position that is best at all times. Choose the lane position that allows the most visibility and space around you. Change your lane position as traffic situations change.

28. Passengers should:
Look over their shoulder when taking a turn or curve.
Never hold onto the rider.
Sit as far back as possible.

Before mounting, you should ask your passenger to look over your shoulder in the direction of any turn or curve that you may take. Doing so will help you and your bike to lean in the appropriate direction.

29. If vehicles or other potential hazards are to your right, you should ride on which side of your lane?
Either side

When riding on the road, position yourself in a manner that allows you the most possible space. If there are hazards to your left, ride on the right side of your lane. If there are hazards to you right, ride on the left side of your lane.

30. To be effective, eye or face shield protection must:
Fasten securely.
Restrict your vision to the sides so you can focus on the road ahead.
Not allow eyeglasses or sunglasses to be worn.

To be effective, an eye or face shield must be free of scratches; be resistant to penetration; allow clear views to both sides; fasten securely; permit air to pass through to prevent fogging; and allow room for eyeglasses or sunglasses, if needed.
