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. After entering a turn, you should roll on the throttle and:
Always slow down.
Maintain a steady speed or accelerate gradually.
Accelerate drastically.
Not worry about your speed.

Roll on the throttle through a turn to stabilize your suspension. Maintain a steady speed or accelerate gradually through the turn.

2. 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.

3. To reduce your reaction time, you should:
Ride under the speed limit.
Cover the clutch and brakes.
Shift into neutral when slowing.
Accelerate before turning.

When approaching a potentially dangerous area, such as an intersection, you should cover the clutch lever and both brakes in order to reduce the amount of time you will need to react to any hazards.

4. The gearshift lever is operated by:
Your right hand.
Your right foot.
Your left hand.
Your left foot.

The gearshift lever of a motorcycle is located in front of the left footrest and is operated by the rider's left foot.

5. When crossing angled railroad tracks, it is usually safest to approach the tracks:
By proceeding straight within your lane.
At a 45-degree angle.
At a 90-degree angle.
At a fast speed.

In general, it is safest to simply proceed straight in your lane when crossing angled railroad tracks. Turning to approach tracks at a right angle can be dangerous because it may send you traveling into another lane.

6. One way to tell if your rear tire has gone flat while riding is if:
There is a hissing noise coming from the rear of the bike.
The back end is jerking from side to side.
You are unable to accelerate.
The rear brake does not work.

If your rear tire fails, the back of your motorcycle will likely jerk from side to side. It is rare for motorcyclists to actually hear a tire fail.

7. Before riding, check all of the following, except:
Your tires' inflation pressure.
The amount of tread on your tires.
The reflective quality of your tires.
The general condition of the sidewalls on your tires.

Before every ride, be sure to check your tires' inflation pressure, your tires' treadwear, and the general condition of the sidewalls and tread surface on the tires.

8. If you must ride over an obstacle, you should:
Decrease your speed as much as possible.
Lean the motorcycle to one side.
Speed up, if possible.
Stay on your seat and remove your feet from the footrests.

If you are unable avoid an obstacle and must instead ride over it, slow down and approach the obstacle at as close to a 90-degree angle as possible. Keep your motorcycle straight up and down, if possible. Just before contact, roll off the throttle slightly to lighten the front end of the motorcycle.

9. When riding in a group, it is best to put inexperienced riders near the front because:
Experienced riders can more easily keep an eye on them.
They will get lost if they are leading.
They may slow the group down as the leaders.
They will ride too fast in any other position.

In a group, less experienced riders should ride toward the front, just behind the leader, so more experienced riders can easily watch them.

10. Signals on a motorcycle:
Serve little purpose since motorcycles are smaller than most other vehicles.
Are very important to alert other motorists to a rider's intentions.
Should not be used if no vehicles are close to the motorcycle.
Are more complicated than those on a car.

You are especially vulnerable as a motorcyclist, so it is very important to use your turn signals to alert others to your intentions. Always use them any time that you plan to change lanes or turn, even if you don't think anyone else is nearby.

11. 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.

12. Rain suits:
Should not be used.
Should not balloon when riding.
Are not needed since motorcycles shouldn't be operated in the rain.
Should tear easily.

High-quality rain suits designed for motorcycle riding will resist tearing and ballooning when a rider travels at high speeds.

13. When riding in a group, inexperienced riders should ride:
In the front of the group.
Right behind the leader.
At the back of the group.
Wherever they are most comfortable.

When riding in a group, inexperienced riders should ride just behind the leader near the front of the group. This allows more experienced riders to keep an eye on them from the back of the group.

14. Riding between two vehicles moving in the same direction:
Is illegal.
Is encouraged if traffic is heavy.
Is encouraged during the day to prevent traffic jams.
Is acceptable if the motorcyclist is comfortable with the move.

In Oregon, it is illegal for motorcycles and mopeds to pass between two moving vehicles on a multilane highway or one-way street.

15. 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.

16. When you are riding on a bridge grating, you should:
Always ride on the far right side of the lane.
Always ride on the far left side of the lane.
Slowly zigzag across the grating.
Relax, maintain a steady speed, and ride straight across the surface.

Crossing rain grooves or bridge gratings may cause your motorcycle to move in a weaving motion. This is usually not dangerous, so simply relax and proceed across the surface at a steady speed. Trying to ride at an angle to compensate for the weave is dangerous because it forces you to zigzag to stay in your lane.

17. All of the following will lessen your chances of being involved in an accident, except:
Remaining alert.
Identifying hazards and prioritizing risks.
Riding without a headlight.
Maintaining a space cushion.

To reduce your risk of being involved in a crash, you should remain alert and ready to react to any hazard. Identify hazards and decide the order in which you need to address the hazards. Always use your headlight to make yourself more visible and maintain an adequate space cushion around your motorcycle at all times.

18. When braking, you should:
Squeeze the front brake and press the rear brake.
Grab at the front brake and squeeze the rear brake.
Jam on the front brake and grab at the rear brake.
Press down on the front brake and jam on the rear brake.

To brake, squeeze the front brake lever and press down on the rear brake pedal. Always use both brakes when slowing or stopping.

19. If your motorcycle begins to wobble, you should:
Accelerate out of the wobble.
Use the brakes gradually.
Grip the handlebars firmly and close the throttle gradually.

Trying to accelerate out of a wobble is dangerous and will only make your motorcycle more unstable. Instead, grip the handlebars firmly (without trying to fight the wobble), gradually close the throttle to slow down, and move your weight as far forward and downward as possible. Pull off the road as soon as you can.

20. It is difficult for other motorists to see motorcycles at night. To make up for that, a motorcycle rider should:
Reduce their speed when riding at night.
Sound their horn repeatedly when riding at night.
Not ride at night.
Stay directly in front of another vehicle to be seen in their headlights when riding at night.

Strategies for safely riding at night include reducing your speed, increasing your following distance, using the lights of the car ahead to help see farther down the road, using your high beam headlight (unless following or meeting another vehicle), and being flexible about your lane position.

21. When changing lanes, riders should:
Rely only on their mirrors to identify other vehicles.
Turn their head to look for traffic behind them.
Not worry about other traffic.
Slam on the brakes to allow any vehicles in their blind spot to pass.

A motorcycle has blind spots just like any other vehicle. A rider must always turn their head to check for traffic before changing lanes.

22. A group of riders should pass another vehicle:
In a staggered formation.
In a pyramid formation.
One at a time.
In a splintered formation.

On a two-lane highway, a group of riders should pass another vehicle one at a time. The second rider should not begin to pass until the first rider has safely re-entered the original lane. Riders should continue in this pattern until they have all safely passed the vehicle.

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. More than half of all crashes:
Occur at speeds greater than 35 mph.
Happen at night.
Are caused by worn tires.
Involve riders who have operated the involved motorcycle for less than six months.

More than half of all motorcycle crashes involve riders with less than six months of experience on the motorcycle being used.

25. When changing lanes, you should:
Signal, use your mirrors, and turn your head.
Signal and use your mirrors.
Turn your head and change lanes.
Signal and change lanes.

Always use the proper turn signal before a turn or lane change. Use your mirrors and perform head checks before changing lanes to check for traffic surrounding your vehicle.
