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. 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.

2. When you are being passed on the left, you should:
Speed up.
Ride in the right portion of the lane.
Ride in the center portion of the lane.

When being passed on your left, you should ride in the center portion of your lane. Riding in the right portion of the lane can be dangerous as it may tempt the passing driver to re-enter your lane too quickly.

3. When approaching a blind intersection, riders should:
Stop at the stop line before moving forward to improve their view of cross traffic.
Ignore the stop line and move forward to get a better look.
Stop at the stop line then proceed through the intersection.

When approaching a blind intersection that is controlled by a stop line or stop sign, you must first stop where indicated. You may then edge forward and stop again just short of where the cross traffic lane meets your lane. From that position, lean your body forward and look around buildings, parked cars, or bushes to see if anything is approaching. Make sure your front wheel stays out of the crossroad while you are looking.

4. Stopping in a turn can be difficult because:
There is decreased traction available for stopping while the bike is leaning.
The rider is usually focused on the turn and not on the braking.
The brake controls do not work in turns.

It is possible to use both brakes while turning, but it must be done with great care. Some of the usual traction is being used to make the turn while the motorcycle is leaning, so less traction is available for stopping.

5. The proper action to take when riding an unfamiliar motorcycle for the first time is to:
Just start riding. There is no better way to learn than by doing.
Just start riding. Most bikes are similar, so you don’t have to take the time to identify safety features.
Work the throttle, clutch, and brakes before riding to learn the bike's gear pattern.

Every bike is a little different, so don't start riding an unfamiliar motorcycle without first familiarizing yourself with how it operates. Do a safety and maintenance check; find out where everything is located; and work the throttle, clutch, and brakes a few times to learn its gear pattern.

6. If you have a passenger aboard your motorcycle, you should do all of the following, except:
Ride at speeds that are slower than usual.
Allow more distance to stop than usual.
Tell the passenger to hold onto the back of the bike.

A motorcycle that is carrying a passenger will handle differently than usual due to the added weight of the additional rider. An operator should ride at slower speeds and allow more time and distance to slow down and stop. A passenger should hold firmly and securely onto the motorcycle's passenger handgrips or onto the operator's waist, hips, or midsection.

7. A rider's boots or shoes should:
Be below their ankles.
Cover their ankles.
Be made of a soft, pliable material.

For riding, choose footwear that is sturdy and high enough to cover and support your ankles. Soles should be made of hard, durable, slip-resistant material.

8. Which of the following materials provides the best protection for motorcycle riders?

Clothing made of leather or sturdy synthetic materials provide the greatest degree of protection for those riding motorcycles.

9. The safest part of the lane:
Is always the left portion of the lane.
Is always the right portion of the lane.
Changes depending on the situation.

There is no single lane position that is always best and no single lane position that should always be avoided. Adjust your lane position as circumstances warrant.

10. You should flash your brake light to:
Tell other motorists that you are riding near them.
Help other motorists see your motorcycle while traveling in slow traffic.
Tell other motorists that you are going to slow down or stop where they don't expect you to do so.

Motorcycle riders should use their brake lights to communicate with other road users. It is particularly important for a motorcyclist to flash their brake light before slowing down to make a tight, fast turn off of a high-speed roadway. Motorcyclists should flash their brake lights when slowing in any location where other drivers may not expect them to slow down.

11. When traveling at night, you should:
Ride as fast as you would if riding during the day.
Ride more slowly than you would if riding during the day.
Ride faster than you would if riding during the day.

When traveling at night, ride more slowly than you would if riding during the day, especially when traveling on an unfamiliar road. Riding more slowly allows you additional time to avoid hazards under conditions of decreased visibility.

12. For motorcycle operators, eye protection is:
Not required, but recommended.
Not recommended.

Motorcycle operators are required to use proper eye protection when riding in Georgia.

13. Your motorcycle should fit you, meaning:
Your fingertips should barely reach the handlebars when you are seated on the motorcycle.
The seat should be one foot higher than your waist when you are standing next to the motorcycle.
Your feet should comfortably reach the ground when you are seated on the motorcycle.

A motorcycle fits you appropriately if your feet comfortably reach the ground while you are seated. Be sure a motorcycle fits you before riding.

14. 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.

15. If your motorcycle starts to weave while riding over uneven metal bridge gratings, you should:
Downshift immediately to a lower gear.
Proceed in a zigzag pattern until you cross the bridge.
Relax and steer straight.

If your motorcycle begins to weave while riding over uneven rain grooves or bridge gratings, simply relax and proceed straight across the grooves at a steady speed. Steering in a zigzag pattern as you cross gratings is more dangerous than the weaving.

16. When riding, your feet should be:
On the gas tank.
Hanging loosely.
On the footrests.

Your feet should remain on your footrests while riding to help you maintain proper balance.

17. If your motorcycle begins to weave while you are riding over rain grooves or bridge gratings, you should:
Speed up to get over the surface faster.
Exaggerate the zigzag motion to get the attention of other drivers.
Maintain a steady speed and ride straight across the grooves or gratings.

If your motorcycle begins to weave when riding over grooves or gratings, simply maintain a steady speed and proceed straight across the surface. Trying to compensate for the weave by riding at an angle forces you to zigzag to stay in your lane, which is more dangerous.

18. The operator of any motor vehicle involved in a collision resulting in more than $1,000 worth of property damage must:
File a report, but only if planning to report the accident to their insurance company.
Submit a report of the accident to the DMV.
Contact the highway department.

The operator of a motor vehicle involved in a collision resulting in property damages greater than $1,000 must submit a report of the collision to the DMV. The DMV is authorized to impose sanctions following an uninsured reportable collision.

19. A plastic, shatter-resistant face shield:
Protects your face, but not your eyes.
Protects your eyes, but not your whole face.
Helps protect your whole face.

A plastic, shatter-resistant face shield provides maximum protection for your entire face, including your eyes, in the event of a crash. A windshield is not an adequate substitute.

20. Lanes of traffic moving in the same direction are separated by:
White lines.
Yellow lines.
Road signs.

White lines are used to separate traffic moving in the same direction. Solid lines indicate that drivers are not permitted to pass, whereas dashed lines indicate that drivers are permitted to pass, if it is safe to do so.

21. When attempting to pass another vehicle, you should:
Ride within the posted speed limits.
Exceed the posted speed limit to complete the pass, but not by more than 10 mph.
Pass more than one vehicle at a time.

All passes must be completed within legal speed limits. Riders should pass only where it is safe and legal to do so.

22. To reduce the chances of a collision, a motorcycle rider should:
Maintain an adequate space cushion.
Ride very slowly.
Ride the centerline.

To reduce your chances of being involved in a collision, always allow yourself an adequate cushion of space. Maintain your space cushion when following another vehicle, being followed by another vehicle, passing, being passed, or lane sharing.

23. 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.

24. When sitting on a motorcycle, your arms should:
Have a large bend at the elbow when reaching for the handle grips.
Be slightly bent when holding the handle grips.
Be fully extended when reaching for the handle grips.

Your arms should be slightly bent when you are holding the handle grips of a motorcycle. Bending your arms reduces arm fatigue and permits you to press on the handlebars without having to stretch.

25. Noise created by wind:
Is easy to get used to.
May cause irreversible hearing damage.
Is never a danger.

Long-term exposure to wind noise can permanently damage your hearing. Using proper ear plugs or other hearing protection when riding is recommended.

26. When wearing a jacket for protection, the jacket should:
Be loose-fitting and flap in the wind while riding.
Fit snugly.
Be uncomfortable.

Clothing for riding should provide protection while keeping you comfortable. Jackets and pants should be snug enough that they do not flap in the wind, but not so snug that they restrict your movements.

27. 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.

28. What can remove alcohol from a person's system?

The only way to sober up after drinking is to give your body the time it needs to remove the alcohol. There are no techniques that will speed up this process.

29. 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.

30. If your front wheel locks while you are stopping, you should:
Continue to apply the front brake.
Release the front brake and only use the rear brake.
Immediately release the front brake, then re-apply the brake firmly.

If your front wheel locks while you are making a quick stop, release the front brake immediately and then re-apply it firmly. Use both the front and rear brakes if you need to stop quickly.
