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. To be effective, eye or face shield protection must be all of the following, except:
Able to fasten securely.
Too tight to allow sunglasses or eyeglasses to be worn.
Free of scratches.
Able to allow clear views to both sides.

To be effective, an eye or face shield must be free of scratches; be resistant to penetration; allow clear views to both sides; fasten securely; permit air to pass through to prevent fogging; and allow room for eyeglasses or sunglasses, if needed.

2. Because of their small size, motorcycles seem to be:
Traveling faster than they actually are.
Traveling more slowly than they actually are.
Not moving when they actually are.
Closer than they actually are.

Because of their size, motorcycles may seem to be traveling faster than they actually are.

3. During your pre-ride inspection, you should check all of the following, except the:
Headlight and taillight.
Turn signals.

Before setting off on any ride, you should do a thorough check of your motorcycle. Inspect the tires, oil and fluid levels, headlight, tail light, turn signals, brake light, clutch and throttle, mirrors, brakes, and horn.

4. 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.

5. To increase your line of sight when preparing to pass another vehicle on its left, you should:
Ride in the left portion of your lane.
Ride in the right portion of your lane.
Ride in the center portion of your lane.
Try to stand up on your motorcycle.

When preparing to pass another vehicle on its left, you should ride in the left portion of your lane. This will increase your line of sight and make you more visible to oncoming traffic.

6. A pre-ride inspection should be done:
Before every ride.
Once a week.
Once a month.
Once a season.

To prevent any dangerous situations caused by technical issues, you should perform a thorough inspection of your motorcycle before every ride. Compared to a car, small technical problems can have more serious consequences on a motorcycle.

7. When it is raining, it is usually best to:
Ride in the center of the lane.
Pull off to the side of the road until the rain stops.
Ride in the tire tracks left by cars.
Increase your speed.

Wet pavement is especially slippery when it first begins to rain. Deposits of oil left by cars will not yet have washed off the roadway. If it is raining, it is safest to ride in the tire tracks left by cars. The left tire track will often be your best choice, although this may vary.

8. Of the crashes involving both a motorcycle and a car, how many are caused by the driver failing to properly yield the right-of-way to the rider?
About 10 percent
About 25 percent
Over 50 percent
About 90 percent

Of the crashes involving both a motorcycle and a car, more than half are caused by the driver failing to properly yield right-of-way to the rider.

9. Do not change gears on railroad tracks because:
Your motorcycle may stall.
You might go too fast.
Other drivers may not be expecting you to change gears.
The uneven surface may make it more difficult to switch gears.

It is best not to shift gears when crossing railroad tracks. There is a chance your motorcycle might stall while you are on the tracks.

10. You should check your tires for all of the following, except:
Air pressure.
General wear.

When doing a pre-ride inspection of your motorcycle, you should check the air pressure, general wear, and tread of your tires.

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

When approaching a potentially dangerous area, such as an intersection, you should cover the clutch lever and both brakes in order to reduce the amount of time you will need to react to any hazards.

12. Generally, the body eliminates one alcoholic drink per hour. If a person consumed eight alcoholic drinks four hours ago, how many drinks likely remain in their body?

The minimum number of drinks left in a person's system can be estimated by subtracting the number of hours since the last drink from the total number of drinks consumed. In this case, the alcohol content of about four drinks would remain.

13. If only one alcoholic drink is consumed:
Judgment and riding abilities can still be affected.
There is usually no effect on the body.
There is an effect on the body, but it only lasts for a short time.
There is an effect on the body, but it can be eliminated by drinking coffee.

As little as one alcoholic drink can significantly affect the skills that are needed for safe riding. The only way to remove the alcohol content of a drink from your body is to allow your body time to eliminate it.

14. Without a helmet, a motorcycle rider is ________ more likely to suffer a critical head injury in a crash.
Three times
Four times
Five times
Six times

Without a helmet, a rider is five times more likely to sustain a critical head injury in a crash.

Leather garments can provide the greatest level of protection to motorcyclists. It is important to wear clothing that covers your legs and arms entirely when riding a motorcycle.

16. When checking tire pressure:
Eyeballing the tire is a good method.
Use a tire gauge.
It is best to squeeze the tire.
Compare the height of the tire to another tire.

You should use a tire gauge to check the tire pressure before every ride. An under-inflated tire may still look okay, so a visual check is not enough.

17. A way to lower the risk of being involved in a crash is to:
Communicate your intentions to other road users.
Not look ahead while riding.
Wear dark clothes.
Ride in the parts of a lane that make it difficult to be seen.

To reduce the risk of being involved in a crash, you should always ensure that you are visible to others. Communicate your intentions through proper use of your signals, brake light, and lane position. Maintain a space cushion around your motorcycle and consistently scan the road ahead of, behind, and next to your vehicle.

18. To get the best protection, be sure that your helmet:
Meets Department of Transportation guidelines.
Looks sturdy.
Is inexpensive.
Is in your favorite color.

Choose a helmet that meets U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and state standards. It should fit you snugly all the way around and be free of obvious defects.

19. A shatter-resistant face shield:
Can protect a rider's face in a crash.
Is only useful in protecting riders from dirt.
Does not offer as much protection as goggles.
Should not be used with a helmet.

A plastic, shatter-resistant face shield can provide protection for your entire face in the event of a crash. Goggles can protect your eyes, but not the rest of your face. A face shield also provides routine protection from dirt, dust, insects, rain, and pebbles.

20. How do headache, cold, and hay fever medications usually affect your body?
They make you drowsy.
They make you more alert.
They make you hungry.
They make you unable to concentrate.

Near the left footrest
Near the right footrest
On the left handle grip
On the right handle grip

The throttle of a motorcycle is usually located on the right handle grip. Be sure to know where all of your motorcycle's controls are located before riding.

23. Mirror checks:
Should be part of your normal scanning routine.
Should be avoided because they will distract you.
Should be avoided since other drivers will see you easily.
Are only recommended in bad weather.

For your safety, it is important to be aware of what's behind you. Frequent mirror checks should be a part of your normal searching routine.

24. When riding in a group, the best riding formation is generally:
A staggered formation.
A single-file line.
A pyramid formation.

A staggered formation is generally best when riding in a group. You should move into a single-file line when turning, riding in a curve, or entering or exiting a highway.

25. When changing lanes, riders should:
Rely only on their mirrors to identify other vehicles.
Turn their head to look for traffic behind them.
Not worry about other traffic.
Slam on the brakes to allow any vehicles in their blind spot to pass.
