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. 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.

2. Riding at night is usually:
Easier than riding during the day because you can more easily see the lights of other vehicles.
More difficult than riding during the day because it is harder to see.
Not allowed on highways.
Less distracting than riding during the day.

Riding safely at night is challenging because it is harder to see and be seen than it is during the day. The absence of normal shadows and light contrasts makes it harder to judge distances.

3. When you are being passed by a vehicle on your left, you should:
Help the other driver by moving as far to the right as possible.
Help the other driver by moving to the shoulder.
Ride in the center portion of your lane.
Ride in the left portion of your lane

When being passed, it is best to ride in the center portion of your lane. Riding on the side nearest to the passing vehicle increases the risk of a collision. Riding on the side farthest from the passing vehicle is also dangerous because it may tempt them to merge back into your lane too soon. Stay in the center portion of the lane when being passed.

4. Signals on a motorcycle:
Are not very important.
Are even more important than signals on larger vehicles.
Should not be used unless another vehicle is right next to the motorcycle.
Are less important than signals on larger vehicles.

Because motorcyclists are more vulnerable than the drivers of cars and trucks, appropriate use of signals by motorcyclists is even more important than it is for other drivers.

5. To help other drivers see you, you should wear:
Darkly-colored clothes.
Brightly-colored clothes.
A black jacket.

Wearing brightly-colored clothing will help you to be seen by other road users. Wear clothes that increase your visibility both during the day and at night.

6. On a slippery surface, you should not:
Reduce your speed.
Avoid making sudden moves.
Use only the front brake when slowing or stopping.
Use both brakes when slowing or stopping.

To ride safely on a slippery surface, you should use both brakes when slowing or stopping, reduce your speed, and avoid making sudden moves. Be alert to oily areas, dirt, gravel, shaded areas, and bridges, as these surfaces are more likely to be slippery than others.

7. When riding, you should:
Turn your head and shoulders to look through turns.
Keep your arms straight.
Keep your knees away from the gas tank.
Turn just your head and eyes to look where you are going.

When turning, look through the turn to where you want to go by turning only your head. Keep your knees against the gas tank to help maintain your balance while turning. Your arms should be slightly bent any time you are holding the handgrips.

8. 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.

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. On which of the following surfaces does a motorcycle have the best traction?
Dry pavement

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

11. If in a no passing zone:
A motorcycle may still pass another vehicle.
A motorcycle is not allowed to pass another vehicle.
A motorcycle may pass another vehicle if the pass can be completed before another vehicle approaches.
A motorcycle may pass on the shoulder.

Passing is prohibited in no passing zones. It is also prohibited to pass by riding off of the main-traveled portion of a roadway.

12. It is recommended that a motorcyclist:
Shift gears in a turn.
Shift gears before a turn.
Change power suddenly in a turn.
Ride the brake throughout the turn.

It is recommended that you change gears prior to entering a turn.

13. The control for the rear brake is usually located:
On the right handlebar.
On the left handlebar.
Near the left foot.
Near the right foot.

The rear brake of a motorcycle is usually operated with the right foot.

14. The single most important thing you can do to improve your chances of surviving a crash is to:
Wear a high-quality helmet that is securely fastened.
Wear shorts.
Wear sneakers.
Wear goggles.

The single most effective action you can take to improve your chances of surviving a crash is to wear a high-quality helmet that is securely fastened.

15. After drinking, what lessens the effects of alcohol?

The liver burns alcohol at a set rate, and there is nothing you can do to speed along the process. The only way to lessen the effects of alcohol is to give your body the time needed to remove it.

16. A plastic, shatter-resistant face shield:
Is not necessary if you have a windshield.
Only protects your eyes.
Protects more than just your eyes.
Does not protect your face as well as goggles.

A plastic, shatter-resistant face shield helps protect your entire face, including your eyes. Goggles can protect your eyes, but not the rest of your face. A windshield is not an adequate substitute for either.

17. When riding at night, you should travel:
More slowly than you would during the day under similar conditions.
At the speed you would travel during the day under similar conditions.
Faster than you would during the day under similar conditions.
On the shoulder of the road so other vehicles can see you.

When riding at night, travel at a slower speed than you would during the day under similar weather and traffic conditions. It can be difficult to see potential hazards in the dark, so slowing down can increase your chances of avoiding any hazards.

18. 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.

19. 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.

20. When it comes to motorcycle safety, you should:
Assume everything on your motorcycle will work properly.
Conduct a pre-ride inspection before every ride.
Conduct a pre-ride inspection each month.
Conduct a pre-ride inspection twice a week.

A small mechanical fault can have more serious consequences on a motorcycle than on a car. Conduct a thorough pre-ride inspection of your motorcycle before every ride.

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. If you are not traveling slowly enough when shifting into a lower gear, the:
Motorcycle could lurch and the rear tire could skid.
Motorcycle could accelerate too quickly.
Front tire will likely skid.
Engine will make a loud noise.

If you are not riding slowly enough when shifting into a lower gear, the motorcycle will lurch and the rear wheel may skid.

23. It is most important to flash your brake light when:
Switching into a neutral gear.
You will be slowing suddenly.
There is a stop sign ahead.
Your signals are not working.

If a tailgater is following you too closely, it is advisable to flash your brake light before you begin to decelerate. The tailgater may be concentrating on you and may not be aware of hazards farther down the road that you are slowing to avoid.

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

To help reduce your reaction time, you should cover the clutch and brakes. This is especially helpful when riding through areas where potential hazards are likely.

25. To lessen your chances of being involved in a crash, you should:
Not use your turn signals when changing lanes.
Follow other vehicles closely.
Watch about five feet ahead of your motorcycle while riding.
Always be ready to use crash-avoidance techniques.

To reduce the risk of 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. Always be ready to avoid an unexpected hazard.
