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 riding downhill on a motorcycle with a sidecar:
Stopping will be easier than when riding without a sidecar.
Stopping will take longer than when riding without a sidecar.
You cannot stop.
Stopping is about as easy as it is when riding without the sidecar.

Riding with a sidecar increases the weight of a motorcycle and increases the braking force needed to stop the motorcycle. Slowing and stopping take longer when riding a vehicle downhill than when riding on a flat surface.

2. A helmet should not:
Meet U.S. DOT standards.
Fit snugly.
Be without obvious defects.
Have been previously worn in an accident.

You will get the greatest amount of protection from a helmet if it meets U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and state standards, fits snugly all the way around, and has no obvious defects. A helmet worn at the time of a crash should be replaced.

3. As weight transfers to the front of your bike while you are braking, you should:
Gradually increase pressure to the front brake.
Use more rear brake pressure.
Not worry. The weight transfer will not have an effect on your motorcycle.
Try to lock the front tire.

While you are braking, gradually increase the amount of pressure applied to the front brake lever as the weight of the bike is transferred forward to the front tire.

4. When riding, goggles:
Protect your eyes, but not the rest of your face.
Protect your face, but not your eyes.
Are not as effective at protecting your eyes as eyeglasses.
Are not effective in providing any protection.

Goggles can provide protection for your eyes, but only a face shield can protect your entire face. Eyeglasses are not an adequate substitute for either goggles or a face shield.

5. When approaching an intersection, you should:
Assume other drivers see you, especially if they make eye contact.
Never assume other drivers see you.
Stay focused on moving through the intersection.
Speed up to make others notice you.

Never assume that other drivers see you, even if they make eye contact with you. It is not uncommon for drivers to look directly at a motorcyclist and still fail to notice them. Always reduce your speed when approaching an intersection.

6. As the motorcycle’s weight moves forward while braking, you:
Can apply the front brake harder.
Should lessen the amount of pressure on the front brake.
Can apply the rear brake harder.
Lose traction.

As your weight shifts forward while you are braking, the amount of traction available to the front wheel increases. This means that you can begin to apply the front brake harder.

7. Riding at night:
Is discouraged.
Is made safer by wearing reflective clothing.
Is not safe because other drivers cannot see your turn signals.
Should only be done in the city.

You should wear reflective materials when riding at night to make yourself more visible to other road users.

8. If your motorcycle starts to wobble, it is best to:
Grip the handlebars firmly and close the throttle gradually.
Gradually apply your brakes.

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.

9. When you ride, the best gear to wear is:
Any gear that helps to protect you.
The lowest-priced gear.
Gear that looks good.
Any gear that fits.

You should wear gear that helps protect you while you ride. It is best to wear a DOT-approved helmet, face or eye protection, and protective clothing.

10. If a driver is following you too closely, you should:
Flash your brake light before you slow to warn the other driver.
Pull over to the side of the road.
Slow down.

If someone is following you too closely, it is a good idea to flash your brake light before slowing down. A tailgater may be concentrating on you and not see upcoming hazards that require traffic to slow down.

11. When choosing clothes for riding, which of the following is not a good choice?
A jacket and pants that cover your arms and legs completely
Boots or shoes that cover your ankles
Gloves made of leather
A baseball cap to cover your hair

To protect yourself against injury, you should wear a DOT-compliant helmet; face or eye protection; a jacket and long pants made of sturdy material; boots or shoes that are high and sturdy enough to cover and support your ankles; and gloves made of durable material.

12. ______ is a guarantee that another driver sees you.
Eye contact
Using a turn signal
Following another vehicle

Nothing guarantees that a driver sees you. It is safest to assume that if another vehicle can enter your path, it will.

13. 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.

14. Who should set the pace in a group of riders?
The leader
The riders just behind the leader
The rider in back
The oldest rider

The last rider in a group of motorcyclists should set the pace of travel. Having the last rider set the pace will ensure that no riders are left behind.

15. Motorcycle riders should not rely on their mirrors to see what’s going on around them because:
Motorcycle mirrors are smaller than the mirrors on other vehicles, so you can't see as much.
Motorcycles, like cars, have blind spots.
Mirrors are never accurate.
Mirrors take your eyes off the road in front of you and they should not be used.

Motorcycles, like any other vehicle, have blind spots. Therefore, you cannot rely only on your mirrors to know what is happening behind you. Frequent head checks should be part of your normal routine.

16. Slippery surfaces can make it difficult to control a motorcycle. Which of the following would be considered a slippery surface?
Wet pavement
A driveway
Dry pavement
A parking lot

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 slippery surfaces. Motorcyclists should ride with extra caution when riding over slippery surfaces.

17. If your motorcycle begins to wobble, you should:
Keep riding, as the wobble will likely correct itself.
Quickly brake.
Close the throttle to slow down.
Accelerate quickly.

Trying to accelerate out of a wobble will only increase the problem. Instead, grip the handlebars firmly, slow down while gradually closing the throttle, move your weight as far forward and downward as you can, and pull off the road as soon as you can. Once off the road, you should address the problem causing the wobble.

18. 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.

19. Why should a load be placed low on a motorcycle?
If a load is too high, it raises the center of gravity.
If a load is too high, it may interfere with the turn signals.
It may be difficult to see over a load that is placed too high.
Others can't see your load if it is low.

Placing a load too high on a motorcycle will raise the motorcycle's center of gravity and risk upsetting its balance.

20. When going through a curve, you should:
Always stay in the same portion of the lane throughout the entire curve.
Always stay in the left portion of the lane throughout the entire curve.
Always stay in the right portion of the lane throughout the entire curve.
Remember that the best path may not follow the curve of the road.

Road and traffic conditions can change at any time. Always be prepared to change your lane position as appropriate no matter where you are on a roadway. The best path through a curve does not necessarily follow the curve of the road.

21. A simple way to make your motorcycle easier to see is to:
Ride with a large flag attached to its frame.
Ride with the headlight turned on.
Wave at other drivers.
Ride on the shoulder whenever possible.

You can make yourself easier to see by wearing brightly-colored, reflective clothing. Ride with your headlight on at all times and use your turn signals and brake light appropriately.

22. If you wait an hour per alcoholic drink before you ride your motorcycle:
You cannot be arrested for drinking and riding.
Your skills will not be affected.
Side effects may still remain.
You will be fine as long as you ride slowly.

On average, a person's body can eliminate the alcohol content of about one drink per hour. However, it is still possible for alcohol to accumulate in a person's system even if they consume only one drink per hour. This accumulation can still affect their ability to ride safely.

23. A windshield:
Is a good substitute for a face shield.
Does not completely protect your eyes from the wind.
Is required on all motorcycles.
Should be used on windy days.

A windshield is not an adequate substitute for the protection offered by goggles or a face shield. Most windshields will not protect your eyes from the wind.

24. Riders who do not wear helmets while riding are ________ to die in a crash than riders who do wear helmets.
Half as likely
Twice as likely
Three times as likely
Just as likely

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.

25. When it starts to rain, it is usually best to:
Increase your speed.
Exit the road.
Ride in the tire tracks left by cars.
Ride in the center of the lane.

The center of a lane can be especially hazardous when wet. When it begins to rain, avoid the center of the road by riding in the tire tracks left by cars. The left tire track is often the best option.
