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. What does a traffic signal displaying a solid red arrow mean?
Drivers must come to a complete stop.
Drivers may proceed through the intersection with caution.
Drivers must yield to oncoming traffic.

A traffic signal displaying a solid red arrow has the same meaning as a red traffic light. Drivers must come to a complete stop and wait for a traffic signal that allows them to turn in their desired direction.

2. To reduce the chances of a collision, you should:
Wear bright or reflective clothing.
Change lanes frequently.
Focus only on your riding, not on your surroundings.

Wearing bright or reflective clothing can help make you more visible to other drivers and reduce your risk of being involved in a collision. Always maintain an awareness of surrounding drivers to better prepare yourself for their movements.

3. Increase your following distance if:
It is raining.
There is light traffic.
It is sunny.

You should increase your following distance if it will take your motorcycle longer than normal to stop, if you can't see through the vehicle ahead of you, or if traffic is heavy and other vehicles are likely to try to squeeze in front of you.

4. The gearshift is located:
By the left footrest.
By the right footrest.
By the right handle grip.

The gearshift lever of a motorcycle is located in front of the left footrest and is operated by the rider's left foot.

5. Which of the following is an example of a potentially slippery surface?
A gravel road
A paved driveway
Dry pavement

Traction may be poor on surfaces such as wet, snowy, icy, or muddy pavement; gravel roads; lane markings; and steel plates and utility hole covers.

6. When parked on the road, a motorcycle should:
Create an angle with the curb that is between 45 and 90 degrees.
Be parked without a wheel or fender touching the curb.
Be parked parallel to the curb.

When parked on the road, a motorcycle should create an angle with the curb that is between 45 and 90 degrees. A wheel or fender should be touching the curb.

7. When at an intersection, eye contact with an oncoming driver:
Is a good way to know that the driver sees you.
Does not mean that the driver sees you.
Is required before proceeding through the intersection.

You should never count on eye contact as an assurance that a driver sees your motorcycle. It is not uncommon for drivers to look directly at motorcyclists and still fail to notice them.

8. When approaching a blind intersection, you should:
Move into the portion of the lane that will bring you into another driver’s field of vision at the earliest possible moment.
Stop at the stop sign or signal and then proceed normally.
Flash your lights and sound your horn to alert other drivers to your presence.

When approaching a blind intersection, move into the portion of the lane that will bring you into another driver’s field of vision at the earliest possible moment.

9. Which factor does not play a major role in affecting your blood alcohol content (BAC)?
The amount of alcohol consumed
Body weight

Factors that play an important role in determining a person's blood alcohol content (BAC) include the amount of alcohol consumed, how fast it was consumed, and the person's body weight.

10. When you are being passed, you should:
Ride in the left portion of the lane.
Ride in the center portion of the lane.
Ride in the right portion of the lane.

When being passed, it is generally safest to ride in the center portion of your lane. Riding on the side nearest the passing driver increases the danger of colliding with them, and riding on the side farthest from the driver may tempt them to return to your lane too soon.

11. What does this sign mean?
No right turn
No left turn
No U-turn

Regulatory signs are white signs with red and black markings that inform drivers of specific traffic laws in the indicated area. This sign indicates that U-turns are prohibited.

12. If you will be carrying a passenger on your motorcycle, you will likely have to:
Reduce the tire pressure.
Make no tire pressure adjustments.
Increase the tire pressure.

Because a passenger will place additional weight on your motorcycle, you will probably need to add a few pounds of pressure to your tires before riding. Check your owner's manual for details regarding the appropriate pressure settings to use.

13. A sign that your rear tire has suddenly gone flat is that:
The back of your motorcycle is swaying from side to side.
You heard a loud noise.
A discharge of air can be seen.

If the rear tire of a motorcycle goes flat, the back of the motorcycle may jerk or sway from side to side. If you experience this movement when riding your motorcycle, you should stop riding and check your tires as soon as possible.

14. When selecting a jacket that will be used as protective apparel, a motorcycle rider should look for a jacket that is:
Black, or another dark color.
Made of leather or synthetic materials.

When riding a motorcycle, it is highly recommended that you wear protective apparel. Look for a jacket that completely covers your arms and fits snugly but still allows you to move freely. Leather or sturdy synthetic materials with integrated body armor offer the best protection.

15. Blind spots on motorcycles:
Are nothing to worry about.
Should be consistently checked by riders.
Don't exist if the motorcycle has a rearview mirror.

Just like any other vehicle, motorcycles have blind spots. A rider should always turn their head to check for traffic in their blind spot before changing lanes. It is a good idea for a rider to make head checks a part of their normal routine.

16. When changing lanes:
Your mirrors can adequately show you your surroundings.
Do a head check in addition to using your mirrors.
Activate your turn signal and immediately move to the right or left.

Like any vehicle, motorcycles have blind spots. In addition to using your mirrors, you must always turn your head to check your blind spot before changing lanes.

17. The best way to stay out of trouble while riding a motorcycle is to:
Look well ahead of your motorcycle.
Avoid high-density traffic areas.
Ride at speeds faster than the speed limit.

To avoid running into dangerous situations while riding, you should consistently scan the road well ahead of your motorcycle. Watch the road ahead to identify and react to potential hazards before meeting them.

18. If you accidentally lock your rear brake on a good traction surface, you should:
Let go of the rear brake.
Keep the rear brake locked until you stop.
Release the rear brake and only use the front brake.

If you accidentally lock the rear tire on a good traction surface, leave it locked until you can come to a complete stop. Even with a locked rear wheel, you will be able to control a motorcycle on a surface with good traction as long as the motorcycle is upright and traveling in a straight line.

19. Helmets are:
Required for all riders.
Not required, but recommended.
Only required for inexperienced motorcycle users.

Georgia law requires riders to wear U.S. Department of Transportation-compliant helmets every time they ride. A helmet is a rider's best defense against head and neck injuries in the event of an accident.

20. When entering a curve, you should position your motorcycle:
In the outside of the curve.
In the inside of the curve.
Where you can most safely handle road and traffic conditions.

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

21. The center portion of a lane contains an oily strip. This strip:
Should be avoided at all times.
Usually provides adequate traction for riding, unless it is raining.
Should only be traveled upon if you are sharing the lane with another vehicle.

While the center strip of the road can be oily, it usually provides enough traction for safe riding, unless it is raining. The oily strip is usually no more than two feet wide, so motorcyclists can generally ride on either side of the strip and still be in the center portion of the lane.

22. Most motorcycle/automobile accidents occur:
At intersections.
On the open road.
In parking lots.

Most collisions between motorcycles and automobiles take place at intersections. The most common cause of these accidents is the automobile operator failing to properly yield the right-of-way to the motorcyclist.

23. When riding a motorcycle, your lane position:
Has little impact on whether or not other drivers can see you.
Is very important because it may affect whether or not other drivers can see you.
Cannot protect you from wind blasts from other vehicles.

An appropriate lane position can increase your ability to see and be seen. Being properly positioned in a lane can also help you avoid blasts of wind coming off of surrounding vehicles.

24. There is the greatest potential for conflict between a motorcycle and other traffic:
On the highway.
At intersections.
On rural roads.

Intersections present the greatest potential for conflict between a motorcycle and other vehicles. Motorcyclists should exercise caution when approaching an intersection.

25. What does this sign mean?
Slippery when wet
Lanes shift

Warning signs are yellow with black lettering or symbols and provide important information to motorists about upcoming road conditions. This sign warns that the roadway ahead is likely to be slippery when wet.

26. Should you wear gloves while riding a motorcycle?
Yes. Your hands may cold while riding.
Yes. They provide an improved grip and help protect your hands.
No. Gloves are not recommended as they can interfere with the controls.

Wearing gloves while riding provides an improved grip and help protect your hands. You should use gloves that are full-fingered and made of a durable material.

27. Long-term exposure to wind noise:
Is not a danger.
Can cause irreversible hearing damage.
Is just part of riding a motorcycle.

Long-term exposure to wind noise can cause permanent damage to your hearing. Using ear protection when you ride should protect you from the dangers of wind noise while still allowing you to hear important sounds, like sirens or car horns.

28. When choosing a jacket for protection, you should ensure that it:
Fits loosely and flaps in the wind.
Fits snugly enough that it does not flap in the wind.
Is it not made of leather or another sturdy material.

When riding, you should choose pants and a jacket made of leather or another sturdy material. They should fit you snugly enough that they do not flap in the wind, but also loosely enough that they let you move freely.

29. If vehicles are present on both sides of you motorcycle, which lane position is usually the best option?

There is no lane position that is always best and no lane position that should always be avoided. A responsible rider will adjust their position as road and traffic conditions warrant. If vehicles are on both the left and right sides of a rider, the center lane position is probably the safest option.

30. When riding in a group on a straight road, motorcyclists should:
Ride in a single-file formation.
Pair up.
Stagger their formation.

Riding in a staggered formation is the best way to keep group ranks close while maintaining adequate space cushions for each individual rider. Motorcyclists should move into a single-file formation when turning, riding in a curve, or entering or leaving a roadway.
