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. When making an ordinary stop, you should:
Use both the front and rear brakes.
Use only the rear brake to save the front brake for special situations.
Use only the front brake to save the rear brake for special situations.
Sharply squeeze the front brake only.

Develop the habit of using both brakes every time you slow or stop. If you need to stop quickly, it is best to apply both brakes. It will be easier to apply both brakes in a quick stop if you have already developed this habit.

2. Where is the greatest potential for conflict between a motorcycle and other traffic?
Parking lots
Residential areas

The greatest potential for conflict between your motorcycle and other traffic is at intersections. Be extra alert when riding somewhere where another vehicle may cross in front of your path of travel.

3. When looking through a turn to see where you are going, you should:
Turn just your head.
Turn your head and shoulders.
Turn just your shoulders.
Turn your entire body.

When making a turn, 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.

4. When riding, you should:
Always scan the road ahead and anticipate potential risks.
Focus on the controls, including the speedometer, rather than the road.
Not be concerned with hazards, because hazards are minimal on the roadway.
Always look ahead, but try not to look for hazards.

When riding, always look well ahead of your vehicle to help you anticipate potential hazards. Doing this will help you react to hazards before meeting them.

5. Most motorcycles:
Have only a front brake.
Have only a rear brake.
Have brakes in both the front and rear.
Have three brakes: one in the front, one in the rear, and an emergency brake.

Motorcycles generally have two brakes, one for the front wheel and one for the rear wheel.

6. When traveling in a group, riders should:
Spread out to make the group easier to see.
Stay close together to make the group easier to see.
Separate occasionally.
Ride in pairs.

When riding in a group, riders should maintain close ranks while also allowing adequate space cushions around each rider. Staying close together makes the group easier to see and reduces the risk that riders will become separated. Riders should not pair up because doing so does not allow adequate room for them to maneuver.

7. When a motorcycle is leaning while going through a corner:
The amount of traction available for braking is reduced.
The amount of traction available for braking is increased.
The brakes work more smoothly than usual.
The motorcycle has more stability than usual.

Any time a motorcycle is leaning, there is less traction available for braking. It is usually best to apply the brakes before entering a turn or curve.

8. When riding a three-wheeled motorcycle through a curve, it is best to:
Stay in the center of the lane.
Stay on the outside of the lane.
Change your path as needed.
Use the shoulder.

The cornering characteristics of a three-wheeled motorcycle or a motorcycle with a sidecar differ from those of a two-wheeled motorcycle. The best path for a three-wheeler to take through a curve may not actually follow the curve. For example, you may need to move from the outside of the curve to the inside of the curve before straightening out your path.

9. You should do all of the following to lesson your chances of being in a crash, except:
Be visible by wearing proper clothing and using your headlight.
Communicate your intentions by using your turn signals and brake light.
Search for hazards in your path.
Hope the other drivers see you.

To minimize your risk of a crash, ensure that you are visible to other drivers, communicating your intentions to other drivers, and maintaining a cushion of space around you. You should search for, identify, and separate hazards. Be prepared to react to anything that happens.

10. Which of the following is not important when looking for a motorcycle helmet?
The helmet meets U.S. Department of Transportation standards.
The helmet fits snugly all the way around your head.
The helmet has no obvious defects, such as cracks or loose padding.
The helmet looks cool.

To ensure that a helmet will provide you with as much protection as possible, check to see if it meets U.S. DOT and state standards; fits snugly all the way around your head; and has no obvious defects, such as cracks, loose padding, or frayed straps.

11. When you are being passed from behind, you should:
Ride in the center portion of the lane.
Ride in the left portion of the lane.
Ride in the right portion of the lane.
Ride in any portion of the lane.

When you are being passed from behind, stay in the center portion of your lane. This will discourage the other driver from re-entering your lane before it is safe.

12. When entering a turn, a rider should:
Speed up.
Reduce their speed.
Move their shoulders to match the angle of the turn.
Sit up as high as possible.

Before entering a turn, a motorcyclist should reduce their speed by closing the throttle and, if necessary, applying both brakes.

13. If you are transporting a passenger, they should:
Lean as you lean.
Hold onto the seat.
Sit as far back on the seat as possible.
Never hold onto you.

Passengers should lean as the operator leans. A passenger should sit as far forward as they can without crowding the operator and hold firmly onto the operator's waist, hips, or belt.

14. Riding directly alongside another vehicle is discouraged because:
You may have a difficult time getting to a highway exit.
You may be in the other vehicle’s blind spot.
You may block the driver's view.
It prevents other drivers from passing both of you.

Riding alongside another vehicle is dangerous because you could be riding in the vehicle's blind spot. The driver may enter your lane without warning if they can't see you. The vehicle will also block your route of escape if a hazard arises.

15. A helmet will not provide the best possible protection:
If it is certified by the DOT.
If it fits snugly.
If it is free of defects.
If it has cracks.

A helmet should meet U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and state standards and fit snugly all the way around to provide maximum protection. It should be free of defects such as cracks, loose padding, or frayed straps.

16. When riding a motorcycle and trying to turn, you should:
Press the grip in the direction you want to turn.
Press the grip opposite of the direction you want to turn.
Not hold the grip because it can be dangerous.
Not lean the motorcycle as that can be unsafe.

When traveling faster than a walking pace, your motorcycle will need to lean to turn. Pressing the grip in the direction you want to turn will cause you to lean in the appropriate direction

17. Maximum front-line braking is accomplished by:
Using the rear brake only.
Using the front brake only.
Using both brakes.
Using the rear brake while downshifting.

Maximum straight-line braking is accomplished by fully applying both the front and rear brakes without locking either wheel. You should always use both brakes every time you slow or stop.

18. If your motorcycle starts to wobble, you should:
Gradually brake.
Grip the handlebars firmly and close the throttle gradually.

Do not try to accelerate out of a wobble because doing so will only make the motorcycle more unstable. Instead, grip the handlebars firmly, slow down by gradually closing the throttle, move your weight as far forward and downward as possible, and pull off the road as soon as you can. Avoid applying the brakes, as this may also worsen the wobble.

19. 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.

20. What can help reduce the risk of a head or neck injury in the event of a crash?
Riding on the shoulder
Riding under the speed limit
Wearing a helmet
Not allowing a passenger on the motorcycle

Wearing a helmet is the single most effective thing you can do to reduce the risk of head or neck injuries in the event of a crash.

21. When choosing a lane position, you should consider:
Whether or not other drivers will see you.
How many cars are on the road ahead.
Which portion of the lane will result in a shorter trip.
If you can pass more vehicles in a certain position than in another.

While a properly chosen lane position can offer several advantages, you should be certain that your lane position will allow you to be seen by others and have an adequate space cushion.

22. Approved helmets:
Can limit the view of the motorcycle operator.
Allow the motorcycle operator to see as far to the sides as necessary.
Are dangerous to wear.
Do not have to be worn if the motorcycle operator thinks their view would be limited.

While some people worry that wearing a helmet may dangerously limit their field of vision, this is not the case. Any approved helmet will let the operator see as far to the sides as is needed for safe riding.

23. When preparing to pass another vehicle on the left, which portion of the lane should you ride in?
The left portion
The center portion
The right portion
The shoulder

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

24. When riding an unfamiliar motorcycle, you:
Will not benefit from familiarizing yourself with the motorcycle before riding.
Should not bother with a pre-ride inspection if the owner says the motorcycle is in good condition.
Should take a few minutes to locate all of the motorcycle's controls before riding.
Should ensure the paint is in good condition.

When riding an unfamiliar motorcycle, you should always perform all of the same checks that you do on your own motorcycle. Take the time to locate all of the controls before riding because all motorcycles are at least somewhat different from one another.

25. When carrying a passenger on a motorcycle, you must:
Have a seat that is large enough for two riders.
Only have one set of footrests.
Not encourage the passenger to wear protective clothing.
Put a sticker on the brake light to warn other motorists that a passenger is on the motorcycle.

You should not carry a passenger unless your motorcycle has a seat that is large enough for two riders. The motorcycle should be equipped with footrests for the passenger. Your passenger should wear the same kind of protective gear that is recommended to operators.
