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. The faster you drink alcohol:
The faster the alcohol is removed from your body.
The faster the alcohol accumulates in your body.
The less the alcohol affects your body.

The faster you drink, the faster the alcohol will accumulate in your body. Alcohol leaves a person's system at an average of one drink per hour. If you consume more than one drink in an hour, you will still have alcohol in your body after one hour has passed.

2. Using all three lane positions is:
Not encouraged because then you can never get used to any part of a lane.
Discouraged because it confuses other motorists.
Wise if you are adapting to changing conditions.

There is no single lane position that is always best and no single lane position that should always be avoided. Vary your lane position as road and traffic conditions warrant.

3. You have an improved chance of avoiding serious injury in a crash if you wear all of the following, except:
A DOT-compliant helmet.
A leather jacket.
A sweatshirt.

Wearing a U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT)-compliant helmet can help protect you against head and neck injuries in the event of a crash. A jacket made of leather or sturdy synthetic material can also protect you against injuries.

4. When starting your motorcycle, the engine should be in:
First gear.
Third gear.

Make sure your motorcycle's transmission is in neutral before you start the engine. Most motorcycles have a neutral indicator on the speedometer that lights up when the ignition switch is on and the cycle is in neutral.

5. Will a DOT-compliant helmet limit a motorcyclist's view of the road?
Yes, a helmet dramatically reduces a rider's view to the sides.
It depends. Some DOT-compliant helmets limit a rider's view.
No. A DOT-compliant helmet will never limit a rider's view to the sides.

A U.S. Department of Transportation-compliant helmet will allow you to see as far to the sides as is necessary for safe riding.

6. When other vehicles are slowed or stopped:
A motorcyclist should not weave between lanes of traffic.
It is acceptable for a motorcyclist to weave in and out of traffic lanes.
A motorcyclist should ride in a straight line between two lanes.

Riding between rows of stopped or slowly moving vehicles can be dangerous. Vehicles may change lanes, doors may open, or arms may be stuck out of vehicles' windows. Despite their size, motorcycles need the full width of a lane to operate safely.

7. Locking your brakes can:
Be helpful in most situations.
Improve steering.
Cause control problems.

Locking the brakes can cause control problems. If your front brake locks, you should release the brake then immediately re-apply it. If you lock your rear brake when stopping on a good traction surface, keep it locked until you have completely stopped.

8. Which of the following is not a benefit of maintaining a cushion of space between your motorcycle and other vehicles?
You have more time to react to the movements of other drivers.
You have space to maneuver.
You have limited escape route options.

Maintaining a space cushion helps to ensure that you will have enough time to react to the movements of others and enough room to maneuver safely.

9. Most motorcycle crashes happen:
At speeds over 55 mph.
At speeds below 30 mph.
On long trips.

Most motorcycle crashes happen at speeds below 30 mph and on trips that are shorter than five miles long.

10. When stopping, you should:
Use both brakes.
Use the front brake only.
Use the rear brake only.

It is a good idea to get into the habit of using both the front and rear brakes every time you slow or stop.

11. When buying a motorcycle helmet, you should be most concerned about the helmet's:

Protection should be your first consideration when buying a motorcycle helmet.

12. If passing another vehicle:
You may exceed the speed limit until the pass is complete.
You may disregard no passing zone markings if you began the pass in a passing zone.
You must observe the posted speed limit.

All passes must be completed within the posted speed limits and only in areas where passing is permitted.

13. If you are riding behind another vehicle at night, you can determine if there are bumps on the road ahead by:
Listening for the other vehicle scraping against the pavement.
Noticing the other vehicle’s taillights bouncing up and down.
Looking at the rear bumper of the vehicle ahead and trying to determine if it is bouncing.

To determine upcoming road conditions when riding at night, use the vehicle ahead of you. For example, the headlights of the vehicle may provide a better view of the road than your own high beam. If the vehicle's taillights bounce up and down, this indicates the presence of bumps on the road.

14. If your rear wheel locks up while you are stopping on a surface with good traction, you should:
Keep the wheel locked until you have stopped completely.
Release the rear brake and only use the front brake.
Release the rear brake and then quickly re-apply the brake.

If you accidentally lock the rear wheel while stopping on a surface with good traction, you can keep it locked until you have completely stopped. Even with a locked rear wheel, you can control your motorcycle if it is upright and traveling in a straight line.

15. Eye protection is:
Required for all riders.
Not required, but recommended.
Only required for inexperienced motorcycle users.

Georgia law requires a rider to wear eye protection when on a moving motorcycle. A full face shield provides a rider with the best possible protection.

16. When choosing a helmet, you should ensure that it:
Has no cracks or defects.
Looks nice.
Fits loosely.

To get the best possible protection, choose a helmet that meets U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and state standards. It should fit snugly all the way around and be free of obvious defects, like cracks, loose padding, and frayed straps.

17. Your lane position should:
Allow you to blend in with traffic.
Provide an escape route.
Encourage others to use 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.

18. When cars are merging from an entrance ramp:
A motorcyclist should assume the entering drivers see them.
A motorcyclist should never assume the entering drivers see them.
A motorcyclist should stop.

Always allow merging cars plenty of space and never assume that the drivers see you. Change lanes away from the entering traffic, if possible. If there is no room for a lane change, adjust your speed to allow for safe merging.

19. When making a non-emergency stop on a motorcycle:
Only the front brake should be used.
The front and rear brakes should be applied at the same time.
Only the rear brake should be used.

When making a normal, non-emergency stop, use the front and rear brakes simultaneously and downshift.

20. When stopping, you should:
Use both brakes.
Use the front brake only.
Use the rear brake only.

Use both brakes every time you slow or stop. It is important to be able to brake quickly by using both brakes.

21. A motorcyclist should attempt to avoid obstacles on the roadway. If avoiding an obstacle is not possible, the motorcyclist should:
Speed up before coming into contact with the object.
Stay seated so the seat can cushion some of the impact.
Try to approach the obstacle at as close to a 90-degree angle as possible.

If you are unable to avoid an obstacle and must instead ride over it, you should slow down and approach the obstacle at as close to a 90-degree angle as possible.

22. What does this sign mean?
Signal ahead
Crossroad ahead
Divided roadway ahead

Warning signs are yellow with black lettering or symbols and provide important information to motorists about upcoming road conditions. This warning sign indicates a divided roadway ahead.

23. When turning, you should:
Move your knees away from the gas tank.
Turn just your head, not your shoulders, to look through the turn.
Turn your head and shoulders to look through the turn.

When turning, look through the turn to where you want to go. Turn only your head, not your shoulders, and keep your eyes level with the horizon. Turning your shoulders may cause you to steer off course.

24. When looking through a turn, you should:
Turn just your head, not your shoulders.
Turn your head and shoulders to improve your view.
Turn your shoulders, but not your head.

When taking a turn, you should look through the turn to where you want to go. Turn just your head, not your shoulders, and keep your eyes level with the horizon.

25. As a rider, you can lessen your chances of being involved in an accident by:
Not looking ahead for hazards.
Refraining from using turn signals, as doing so could distract other drivers.
Being visible to other drivers.

To reduce the risk of a collision, be sure to make yourself visible, clearly communicate your intentions, maintain an adequate space cushion, search your path of travel, and identify and separate hazards. Always be prepared to react to any hazard that could arise.

26. When riding with a passenger on your motorcycle, you should instruct the passenger to:
Get on the motorcycle before the engine starts.
Sit as far back as possible on the bike.
Not talk or move unnecessarily.

Tell passengers to avoid unnecessary conversation or movement while on a moving motorcycle. Passengers should get onto a motorcycle only after the engine is started. They should sit as far forward as possible without crowding the operator.

27. Which of the following is not recommended as protective apparel for motorcycle users?
Long pants
A baseball cap

When riding a motorcycle, it is highly recommended that you wear protective apparel. Clothing that may help protect a motorcycle user in the case of a crash include long-sleeved jackets; long, heavy pants; over-the-ankle, closed-toe boots; and full-fingered leather gloves. It is a good idea to cover as much skin as possible when riding a motorcycle.

28. When riding in a group, inexperienced riders should be:
In the front.
Just behind the lead rider.
In the rear.

In a group, less experienced riders should be positioned toward the front, just behind the leader. This will allow more experienced riders to watch them from behind.

29. When riding in the rain, you should:
Ride down the center of your lane.
Ride on the right side of your lane.
Ride in tire tracks left by other cars.

A road is often very slippery when rain first begins to fall. When it starts to rain, ride in the tire tracks left by cars to get the best traction.

30. When preparing to pass a vehicle on the left, you should ride in which portion of the lane?

When preparing to pass another vehicle on the left, you should ride in the left portion of your lane.
