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. A motorcyclist must wear a helmet.

Though wearing a helmet greatly reduces the risk of a fatal head injury, wearing one is not legally required in Illinois. However, it is highly recommended.

2. Reflective clothing should:
Be worn only at night.
Be worn only during the day.
Not be worn.
Be worn day and night.

Brightly-colored and/or reflective clothing will increase your chances of being seen under any conditions. Remember that most motorcycle crashes happen in broad daylight so it is still best to wear bright clothing during the day.

3. You should completely check your motorcycle:
Before every ride.
Once a week.
Once a month.
Once a year.

A motorcycle requires more frequent attention than a car. Make a complete check of your motorcycle before every ride.

4. When riding at night, you should do all of the following, except:
Use your high beam.
Use the headlights of vehicles ahead to help you see.
Be visible.
Ride only in the left portion of your lane.

When riding at night, use your high beam (unless you are following or meeting another car), take advantage of the headlights of other vehicles, and wear reflective materials to increase your visibility. You should always be flexible about your lane position, selecting whichever position will help you to see, be seen, and have an adequate space cushion.

5. When passing a row of parked cars to your right when there is no oncoming traffic to your left, you should:
Stay toward the right side of your lane.
Stay toward the left side of your lane.
Look to your left frequently.
Use your rearview mirrors more frequently than usual.

When passing a row of parked cars, it is generally best to stay on the side of your lane that is not directly next to the cars. This will help to protect you from potential hazards like car doors being opened or people stepping out from between the cars. If there is traffic coming from the opposite direction, it is a good idea to stay in the center portion of the lane.

6. When riding in a group, inexperienced riders should position themselves:
Just behind the leader.
In front of the group.
At the rear of the group.
Beside the leader.

In a group of motorcyclists, riders with less experience should be positioned toward the front of the group, just behind the leader. This will allow more experienced riders behind them to keep an eye on them.

7. Which of the following surfaces does not provide poor traction?
Wet pavement
Dry pavement
Lane markings

A number of surfaces can provide poor traction for tires. Wet pavement; roads covered in loose gravel or sand; muddy, snowy, or icy areas; and painted lane markings can be more hazardous for a motorcyclist than dry pavement.

8. Making eye contact with other drivers:
Is the best way to know that they see you.
Is not worth the effort it takes.
Does not mean that they will yield to you when they should.
Guarantees that they will yield to you.

You should never take eye contact as a guarantee that a driver will properly yield to you. It is not uncommon for drivers to look directly at a motorcyclist but fail to register that they are there.

9. In a normal turn:
The motorcycle and rider should lean together.
The motorcycle and rider should lean in opposite directions.
The motorcycle should lean, but the rider should not.
The rider should lean, but the motorcycle should not.

During normal turns, the motorcycle and the rider should be leaning together at the same angle. In slow, tight turns, only the motorcycle should lean while the rider keeps their body straight up.

10. 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.

11. When a tire goes flat, the rider can often hear it.

You will seldom actually hear a tire go flat. Instead, tire failure may be indicated by a sudden change in the motorcycle's handling.

12. In general, riders should:
Pick one lane position and always use it.
Change lane positions frequently to prevent monotony.
Choose a lane position that maximizes their space cushion.
Never use the center lane position.

Because road and traffic conditions are always changing, the safest lane position is also always changing. Choose the position that will maximize your space cushion and allow other drivers to see you most easily.

13. In Illinois, you can be convicted of driving under the influence (DUI):
Even if your BAC is under the legal limit.
Only if your BAC is 0.08 percent or higher.
Only if you have an accident while your BAC is .08 percent or higher.
Even if you have not been drinking or consuming controlled substances.

Anyone with a minimum blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08 percent is considered legally intoxicated and is not permitted to operate a motor vehicle. However, a person with a BAC under the legal limit may still be convicted of driving under the influence (DUI) if their driving ability is impaired.

14. It is important to flash your brake light when:
Approaching a police officer.
Someone is following too closely.
There is a stop sign ahead.
Your signals are not working.

It is a good idea to flash your brake light before slowing if someone is following you too closely. The other driver may be focused on you and be unaware of the upcoming hazard that is causing you to slow down. It is also important to flash your brake light if you are about to slow down in a place where other drivers might not expect you to do so.

15. When braking, you should only use the rear brake.

Use both brakes any time you slow or stop.
