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. If you are riding in traffic when a small animal enters your lane, you should:
Do whatever you can, including swerving into other lanes, to avoid hitting the animal.
Switch lanes as quickly as possible.
Stay in your lane.
Flash your lights to try to scare the animal.

Do everything you safely can to avoid hitting an animal in the road. If you are in traffic, however, you should remain in your lane. Swerving into another lane of traffic to avoid hitting an animal can cause you to collide with another driver. Hitting something small is less dangerous than hitting something big.

2. When riding at night, you should:
Be flexible about your lane position and adjust to changing conditions.
Travel at a faster speed than usual to get to your destination more quickly.
Always use your low beam headlight to see better.
Decrease your following distance so you can be as close as possible to the vehicle ahead.

Always be flexible about your lane position, especially when riding at night. Be especially careful to employ safe riding strategies when riding under conditions that are less than ideal.

3. 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.

4. Your lane position should:
Avoid other road users' blind spots.
Provide a good view of the shoulder.
Provide a poor view of road hazards.
Invite others to share your lane.

A properly chosen lane position should help you to see others and be seen by them. Avoid riding in another driver's blind spot for a long period of time.

5. If you are riding when it starts to rain, it is a good idea to:
Ride down the center of the lane.
Increase your speed.
Ride in the tire tracks left by cars.
Pull onto the shoulder of the road.

Because of the presence of oil deposits, the center strip of a lane can be hazardous when wet. When rain starts to fall, it is best to ride in the tire tracks left by cars. It is advisable to reduce your speed on wet surfaces.

6. For a motorcycle to be street-legal, it must have all of the following, except:
Two mirrors.
A horn.
A windshield wiper.
Front brakes.

To be street-legal, a motorcycle must have a headlight, taillight, and brake light; front and rear brakes; turn signals; a horn; and two mirrors.

7. Where is the front brake lever usually located?
On the left handgrip
On the right handgrip
By the left foot peg
By the right foot peg

The front brake lever is generally located on the right handgrip. Make sure that you are aware of the locations of all your motorcycle's controls before beginning to ride.

8. To receive maximum protection, wear a helmet that is certified by the:
U.S. Department of Transportation.
Federal Trade Commission.
Federal Transportation Network.
National Association of Helmets.

To get maximum protection, use a motorcycle helmet that meets U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) standards.

9. When riding through a curve, a group of motorcyclists should:
Ride in a staggered formation.
Ride in a single-file formation.
Ride in a side-by-side formation.
Use both lanes if possible.

While a staggered formation is generally recommended, riders in a group should move into a single-file formation when taking curves, taking turns, entering a highway, or leaving a highway.

10. Moving into another lane while taking a curve is often the result of:
Taking the turn too fast.
Lanes that are too narrow.
Not knowing how to steer.
Lanes that are too wide.

Trying to enter a curve or turn at a speed that is too fast for conditions may cause you to cross into another lane of traffic or leave the road entirely.

11. 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.

12. In hot weather, wearing a riding jacket:
Can help protect against heat exhaustion and dehydration.
Is discouraged because it can cause heat-related problems.
Should only be done if the jacket is a light color.
Is not important.

A riding jacket and long pants should still be worn when riding in hot weather. In addition to their other safety benefits, they can protect a rider from heat exhaustion and dehydration.

13. If your friend has been drinking alcohol, it is a good idea to do any of the following, except:
Arrange for a safe ride home for your friend.
Occupy your friend with activities to distract them from drinking.
Keep your friend from leaving until they are sober.
Allow your friend to ride their motorcycle.

There are several strategies you can use to prevent someone from riding their motorcycle while impaired. You can arrange another way for them to get home, involve them in other activities to slow the pace of their drinking, use any available excuse to stop them from leaving before they are sober, and get other friends involved to intervene as a group.

14. If you are riding and your motorcycle starts to handle differently, you should:
Continue riding normally.
Pull over and check the tires.
Pull over to check the chain.
Pull over to check the windshield.

A sudden change in handling may indicate that a tire on your motorcycle has failed. If you feel a change in the way your motorcycle handles, pull over safely and check your tires.

15. For the best protection, riding gloves should be made of:

Gloves should be made of leather or another durable material to provide proper protection for the wearer.

16. When being passed, all of the following are potential hazards, except:
Extended mirrors.
Objects being thrown from other vehicles.
Blasts of wind.

When being passed, motorcyclists should be careful not to be hit by any part of the passing vehicle, including its mirrors. In addition to the vehicle itself, motorcyclists should be aware of wind gusts coming from the passing vehicle and potential objects being thrown by a passenger in the vehicle who may not be paying attention to the road.

17. A flat front tire is especially hazardous because:
It affects how you steer.
The front tire provides the power for the bike, so you will lose acceleration.
The flat tire will shake the bike, making it hard to use the mirrors.
You won’t be able to use the brake.

A flat front tire is especially dangerous because it affects your ability to steer. If your front tire goes flat while you are riding, safely exit the road as quickly as possible.

18. A driver making eye contact with you:
Means that they see you.
Will never happen.
Does not mean that they will properly yield to you.
Guarantees that they will properly yield to you.

You should never count on eye contact to guarantee that a driver will yield to you. It is not uncommon for drivers to look directly at a motorcyclist but fail to consciously notice them.

19. If hazards are on your left, you should ride:
In the left portion of the lane.
In the right portion of the lane.
In any portion of the lane.
On the shoulder.

When hazards exist to your left, it is often best to ride in the right portion of the lane. Be prepared to adjust your lane position as road and traffic conditions change.

20. If taking a long trip, you should:
Try to minimize the number of rest breaks.
Use artificial stimulants, like caffeine, if you feel drowsy.
Dress warmly to avoid getting too cold during the ride.
Schedule more than 12 hours of riding a day.

To reduce the risk of fatigue on a long trip, dress to protect yourself from tiring elements, such as wind, cold, and rain. Limit yourself to no more than six hours of riding per day and take rest brakes at least every two hours. Avoid using artificial stimulants, as these only result in extreme fatigue when they wear off.

21. 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.

22. When stopping behind a vehicle, you should:
Stop far behind the vehicle, then slowly creep up.
Stay well behind the vehicle.
Make a quick stop right behind the vehicle.
Stay about four car lengths behind the vehicle.

Stay well behind the vehicle in front of you, even if you are both stopped. The vehicle could back up unexpectedly, or you may need space to get out of the way of another vehicle bearing down on you from behind.

23. When braking, you should use:
The front brake only.
The rear brake only.
Both front and rear brakes.
Either the front or rear brake, but not both.

You should always use both brakes every time you slow or stop.

24. Unlike most food and drinks, alcohol does not need to be digested. This means that:
Within minutes of being consumed, the alcohol reaches the brain and begins to affect the drinker.
The alcohol never gets removed from the body.
It takes a long time to feel the effects of alcohol.
Once it is in your system, your body gets rid of the alcohol quickly.

Because it does not have to be digested, alcohol enters a person's bloodstream quickly and reaches the brain within minutes. It gets eliminated from the body at a relatively slow rate: about one drink per hour.

25. During the day, your headlight should:
Not be used.
Be used on its high beam setting.
Be used on its low beam setting.
Alternate between high beam and low beam settings.

Using your high beam headlight during the day increases the likelihood that other drivers will see you. Use your high beam headlight any time you are not riding behind or approaching other vehicles.
