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 lessen your chances of being involved in a crash, you should:
Use your turn signals to indicate that you plan to change lanes.
Tailgate other drivers.
Keep your eyes focused no more than 15 feet in front of your motorcycle.
Not use a headlight during the day.

To lessen the chances of a crash occurring, you should make yourself visible, communicate your intentions to others, maintain adequate space cushions, search your path of travel at least 12 seconds ahead, identify and separate hazards, and be prepared to react to changing conditions.

2. Most crashes happen:
At speeds greater than 55 mph.
After several hours of riding.
On short trips.
On long trips.

Most motorcycle crashes happen on trips that are shorter than five miles in length at speeds slower than 30 mph.

3. It is important to flash your brake light when:
You are tired while riding.
You will be slowing where other drivers won't expect it.
There is a stop sign ahead.
Your signals are not working.

Motorcycle brake lights are more difficult to see than the brake lights of larger vehicles, so flashing your brake light may help other drivers to notice it. You should flash you brake light before slowing down where other drivers may not expect you to slow down, such as in the middle of a block or when approaching an alley.

4. 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.

5. When riding a motorcycle:
It is a good idea to drag your feet.
Your toes should be pointed downward.
You should keep your feet firmly on the footrests.
You should try to keep your feet away from the controls.

To maintain proper balance, your feet should be placed firmly on the footrests and not dragged on the ground. Do not point your toes downward, as this may cause them to catch on the road. Keep your feet near the controls so you can reach them quickly, if needed.

6. A helmeted rider is _______ more likely to survive a crash than a rider not wearing a helmet.
Two times
Three times
Six times
20 times

No matter the speed, riders who are not wearing helmets are three times more likely to die from head injuries than riders who are wearing helmets at the time of a crash.

7. To get the best possible protection, wear a helmet that:
Fits snugly.
Is well-worn and broken in.
Is pretty loose.
Does not have a chinstrap.

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.

8. Which of the following is not a safe step in preventing fatigue while riding?
Protecting yourself from the elements
Taking artificial stimulants
Limiting the distance ridden in one day
Taking frequent breaks

When taking a long trip, be sure to schedule in frequent breaks to rest and try not to ride more than six hours in one day. Wind, cold, and rain can make you tire quickly, so be sure to dress to protect yourself from the elements. Avoid taking artificial stimulants, as the effects when they wear off can be very dangerous.

9. What is the best lane position for a motorcycle operator?
The left position in the lane
The center position in the lane
The right position in the lane
There is no single lane position that is best for all situations.

There is no lane position that is always best and no lane position that should always be avoided. Select a lane position that is appropriate for your current riding conditions, allowing you to maintain an adequate space cushion and be visible to others.

10. When you park a motorcycle next to a curb, it should be:
Parked at a 90-degree angle with the rear wheel touching the curb.
Parked at a 45-degree angle with the front tire touching the curb.
Parked like a car, with the front and rear wheels the same distance from the curb.
Parked at the left edge of the parking space so approaching drivers can more easily see the motorcycle.

You will have more traction as you lean into the curve.
You may have less traction as you lean into the curve.

It is possible to use both brakes while turning, but it must be done with great care. Some of the tires' usual traction is being used to make the turn while the motorcycle is leaning, so less traction is available for stopping.

Not ride during the day.
