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. Moving into another lane while taking a curve is often the result of:
Taking the turn too fast.
Lanes that are too narrow.
Not knowing how to steer.
Lanes that are too wide.

Trying to enter a curve or turn at a speed that is too fast for conditions may cause you to cross into another lane of traffic or leave the road entirely.

2. A motorcycle needs:
Less frequent attention than a car.
More frequent attention than a car.
To have pre-ride checks performed only by a mechanic.
To be serviced only at a dealer.

Because a small technical fault can have more serious consequences on a motorcycle than on a car, motorcycles need to be checked more frequently. Complete a thorough check before every ride.

3. If another driver is following you too closely, it is best to:
Not worry about them.
Change lanes and let them pass.
Speed up.
Get off the roadway.

The best way to deal with a tailgater is to get them in front of you. If you can do so safely, change lanes and let them pass. Increasing your speed may only encourage the driver to tailgate you at a higher speed.

4. Most motorcycle crashes happen:
On short trips.
On long trips.
After at least an hour of riding.
After more than 8 hours of riding.

Most motorcycle crashes happen on trips shorter than five miles, just a few minutes after the rider starts out.

5. A street-legal motorcycle must have all of the following, except:
Front and rear brakes.
Turn signals.
A windshield wiper.
Two mirrors.

In Hawaii, street-legal motorcycles are required to be equipped with brakes, a headlight, a taillight, a stop lamp, a muffler, a horn, a rearview mirror, and a seat.

6. If you are riding when it starts to rain, it is a good idea to:
Ride down the center of the lane.
Increase your speed.
Ride in the tire tracks left by cars.
Pull onto the shoulder of the road.

Because of the presence of oil deposits, the center strip of a lane can be hazardous when wet. When rain starts to fall, it is best to ride in the tire tracks left by cars. It is advisable to reduce your speed on wet surfaces.

7. Riding on the far side of a lane when following another vehicle:
Is recommended because you will be seen easily.
Is not recommended because drivers seldom use their side mirrors and may not see you.
Is recommended because a passenger in the vehicle may tell the driver that you are there.
Is illegal because you have to ride in the center portion of the lane.

Most drivers do not look at their side mirrors as often as they look at their rearview mirror. Therefore, when following a car, it is generally best to ride in the center portion of the lane where you are most likely to be visible in the driver's rearview mirror.

8. A face shield:
Provides protection for the eyes and face.
Is not recommended.
Is required.
Does not protect the face as well as goggles.

A plastic, impact-resistant face shield provides the greatest degree of protection for a wearer's eyes and face. Eyeglasses or sunglasses are not an adequate substitute. In Vermont, you are not legally required to wear eye or face protection if your motorcycle has a windshield, though it is recommended.

9. You should use a larger cushion of space:
When roads are slippery.
When it is sunny outside.
When it is colder than usual.
When you are following other motorcycles.

A two-second following distance is generally appropriate. Allow a larger cushion of space when riding under conditions that will increase your stopping distance, such as when the road surface is icy or wet.

10. To reduce your reaction time, you should:
Shift into neutral when slowing.
Cover the clutch and the brakes.
Pull in the clutch when turning.
Ride under the speed limit.

In potential high-risk areas, such as near intersections, shopping areas, school zones, and construction zones, cover the clutch and both brakes to reduce the time you will need to react to potential hazards.

11. How can you increase your ability to be seen at an intersection?
Try to make eye contact with other drivers.
Make sure you always ride using your headlight.
Wave your arms.
Ride closely to vehicles in front of you.

To maximize your ability to be seen at an intersection, ride with your headlight on and select a lane position that provides oncoming traffic with the best view of your motorcycle. Maintain a space cushion that allows you enough space to take evasive action if a hazard arises. You should never assume that making eye contact with a driver will be enough to make them consciously register your presence.

12. A group of riders should pass another vehicle:
In a staggered formation.
In a pyramid formation.
One at a time.
In a splintered formation.

On a two-lane highway, a group of riders should pass another vehicle one at a time. The second rider should not begin to pass until the first rider has safely re-entered the original lane. Riders should continue in this pattern until they have all safely passed the vehicle.

13. More than half of all crashes:
Occur at speeds greater than 35 mph.
Happen at night.
Are caused by worn tires.
Involve riders who have ridden their motorcycles for less than six months.

Always take extra care when riding a new or unfamiliar motorcycle. Most crashes involve riders who have had less than six months of experience with the motorcycle that they are using.

14. In hot weather, wearing a riding jacket:
Can help protect against heat exhaustion and dehydration.
Is discouraged because it can cause heat-related problems.
Should only be done if the jacket is a light color.
Is not important.

A riding jacket and long pants should still be worn when riding in hot weather. In addition to their other safety benefits, they can protect a rider from heat exhaustion and dehydration.

15. Which fabric provides the best protection for motorcycle riders?

Jackets and pants made of leather offer the greatest degree of protection to those riding motorcycles.

16. A plastic, shatter-resistant face shield:
Is not necessary if you have a windshield.
Only protects your eyes.
Helps protect your whole face.
Does not protect your face as effectively as goggles.

A plastic, shatter-resistant face shield protects your entire face in a crash. Goggles protect your eyes, but not the rest of your face. A windshield is not an adequate substitute for a face shield or goggles.

17. When riding a motorcycle, you should:
Always pick one part of the lane to occupy and never leave that part of the lane.
Vary your lane position as conditions warrant.
Only ride in the center of the lane so other vehicles can see you more easily.
Ride in a zigzag pattern so other drivers notice you.

There is no one lane position that is always best, nor one that should always be avoided. Change your lane position as necessary based on changing road and traffic conditions.

18. It is difficult for other motorists to see motorcycles at night. To make up for that, a motorcycle rider should:
Reduce their speed when riding at night.
Sound their horn repeatedly when riding at night.
Not ride at night.
Stay directly in front of another vehicle to be seen in their headlights when riding at night.

Strategies for safely riding at night include reducing your speed, increasing your following distance, using the lights of the car ahead to help see farther down the road, using your high beam headlight (unless following or meeting another vehicle), and being flexible about your lane position.

19. When riding in curves, turning, or entering a highway, the best group formation is:

While riding in a staggered formation is generally the best option when traveling in a group, riders should move into a single-file line through curves, through turns, and when entering or exiting a highway.

20. As an operator, you should prepare a passenger to ride by instructing them to do each of the following, except:
Get on the motorcycle after the engine has been started.
Sit as far forward as possible.
Maintain a large space between themselves and you.
Keep their legs away from the muffler and chains.

Before beginning a ride, you should ask your passenger to mount the motorcycle only after the engine has been started. They should sit as far forward as they can without crowding you and hold onto the motorcycle's passenger handholds or onto your waist, hips, or belt. They should keep their legs away from the muffler, chains, and other moving parts.

21. To achieve maximum braking, the rider should:
Lock the rear wheel.
Lock the front wheel.
Lock both wheels.
Not lock either wheel.

Maximum straight-line braking is accomplished by fully applying both the front and rear brakes without locking either wheel.

22. In New Hampshire, a person who is age 21 or older with a minimum blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of ______ is considered legally intoxicated.
0.02 percent
0.04 percent
0.06 percent
0.08 percent

A person who is of legal drinking age with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08 percent or higher is considered legally intoxicated. It is both illegal and unsafe to ride a motorcycle while under the influence of alcohol.

23. How does the stopping distance for motorcycles compare to the stopping distance for cars?
Cars need much longer to stop.
Cars need a little longer to stop.
Motorcycles need longer to stop.
Both motorcycles and cars take about the same amount of time to stop.

Under normal conditions, the stopping distances for motorcycles is nearly the same as it is for cars. However, slippery pavement makes quick stops especially difficult for motorcycle operators.

24. A plastic, shatter-resistant face shield:
Is not necessary if you have a windshield.
Only protects your eyes.
Helps protect your whole face.
Does not protect your face as well as goggles.

A plastic, shatter-resistant face shield can help protect your whole face in a crash. While goggles can protect your eyes, they won't protect the rest of your face. A windshield is not a substitute for a face shield or goggles.

25. Riding directly alongside another vehicle:
Can place you in the driver's blind spot.
Is better than riding behind the other vehicle.
Is safe because it limits your escape routes.
Should only be done during the day.

Avoid riding directly alongside another vehicle, since this may place you in the vehicle's blind spot. If the driver can't see you, they may enter your lane without warning. Riding alongside a vehicle is also dangerous because the vehicle will block your route of escape if a hazard arises.
