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 reduce the chances of a collision, you should:
Wear bright or reflective clothing.
Change lanes frequently.
Focus only on your riding, not on your surroundings.

Wearing bright or reflective clothing can help make you more visible to other drivers and reduce your risk of being involved in a collision. Always maintain an awareness of surrounding drivers to better prepare yourself for their movements.

2. In general, which position within a lane is the best to ride in?
The left position
The right position
There is no single best lane position.

There is no single lane position that is always best and no single lane position that should always be avoided. A responsible rider adjusts their position as conditions change.

3. Which brake is more powerful on a motorcycle?
The front brake
The rear brake
Both brakes are equally powerful.

The front brake of a motorcycle is more powerful that the rear brake and can provide at least 70 percent of the bike's total stopping power.

4. Riding gloves should be made of:
Any soft material.

To provide maximum grip and protection, riding gloves should be made of leather or a similar durable material.

5. Your lane position should:
Allow you to blend in with traffic.
Provide an escape route.
Encourage others to use your lane.

A properly chosen lane position should provide a number of benefits, including an increased ability to see others and to be seen. It should help you avoid wind blasts, other drivers' blind spots, and surface hazards. Your lane position should discourage other drivers from trying to share your lane and provide you with an escape route, should a hazard arise.

6. As you approach a blind intersection, you should:
Move into the part of the lane that allows other drivers to most easily see you.
Move into the part of the lane closest to the traffic control device.
Move into the outside edge of the lane.

When approaching a blind intersection, move into the portion of the lane that will bring you into any other driver's field of vision at the earliest possible moment.

7. A rider's boots or shoes should:
Be below their ankles.
Cover their ankles.
Be made of a soft, pliable material.

For riding, choose footwear that is sturdy and high enough to cover and support your ankles. Soles should be made of hard, durable, slip-resistant material.

8. When riding during the day, you should:
Wear dark clothes since it is light outside.
Wear bright clothes so other motorists can see you better.
Be comfortable, wearing shorts if it is hot.

Most motorcycle crashes occur in broad daylight. To make yourself more visible to other drivers, you should always wear brightly-colored clothing when riding, even during the day.

9. As a rider, you can lessen your chances of being involved in an accident by:
Not looking ahead for hazards.
Refraining from using turn signals, as doing so could distract other drivers.
Being visible to other drivers.

To reduce the risk of a collision, be sure to make yourself visible, clearly communicate your intentions, maintain an adequate space cushion, search your path of travel, and identify and separate hazards. Always be prepared to react to any hazard that could arise.

10. When you are being passed, you should:
Ride in the left portion of the lane.
Ride in the center portion of the lane.
Ride in the right portion of the lane.

When being passed, it is generally safest to ride in the center portion of your lane. Riding on the side nearest the passing driver increases the danger of colliding with them, and riding on the side farthest from the driver may tempt them to return to your lane too soon.

11. What does this sign mean?
Yield to other drivers.
A stop sign is ahead.

Warning signs are yellow with black lettering or symbols and provide important information to motorists about upcoming road conditions. This sign warns that a stop sign is ahead.

12. To help others see your motorcycle, you should:
Use your headlight.
Weave in your lane.
Maintain eye contact with other road users.

Riding with your headlight activated is the best way to help other road users see your motorcycle. Always be sure your headlight works before starting your trip.

13. Blind spots on motorcycles:
Are nothing to worry about.
Should be consistently checked by riders.
Don't exist if the motorcycle has a rearview mirror.

Just like any other vehicle, motorcycles have blind spots. A rider should always turn their head to check for traffic in their blind spot before changing lanes. It is a good idea for a rider to make head checks a part of their normal routine.

14. When riding behind another vehicle, you should position yourself:
To be seen in the vehicle’s side mirror.
To be seen in the vehicle’s rearview mirror.
To be seen through the vehicle's passenger window.

If you are following a car, the driver is most likely to notice you if you position yourself behind them in the center of your lane. This lane position places you in the driver's rearview mirror. Most drivers check their rearview mirrors much more often than their side mirrors.

15. Of the following, which is not a reason to keep a cushion of space between your motorcycle and the vehicle in front of you?
It allows you more time to respond to hazards.
It prevents you from finding an escape route.
It provides space to maneuver your motorcycle.

Maintaining an adequate space cushion ensures that you will have time to respond if another driver makes a mistake. A cushion of space also allows you the space you need to safely maneuver your motorcycle.

16. When passing a truck on a two-lane road, you should:
Not return to your original lane until you can see the front of the truck in your rearview mirror.
Return to your original lane as soon as the truck is behind you.
Return to your original lane when you feel you have enough space.

When passing a truck, you should only return to your original lane when you can see the entire front of the truck in your rearview mirror.

17. What should be your first consideration when buying a motorcycle helmet?

Protection should be your first consideration when buying a motorcycle helmet. Look for a helmet that fastens securely, fits correctly, and is DOT-compliant.

18. An engine will seize due to:
A lack of oil.
A lack of fuel.
Improper tire inflation.

Engines seize when they are low on oil. Without oil, the engine’s moving parts cannot move smoothly against each other and the engine overheats.

19. Footrests:
May be shared by the driver and passenger
Are required for the driver and passenger
Are not required

Keep your feet firmly on the footrests for balance. The motorcycle should be equipped with passenger footrests. Firm footing prevents your passenger from falling off and pulling you off, too.

20. When being passed, it is usually best for motorcyclists to be in which part of the lane?
The right
The center
The left

If you are being passed either from behind or by an oncoming vehicle, stay in the center portion of your lane. Riding any closer to the passing driver could place you both in a hazardous situation.

21. Stopping in a turn can be difficult because:
There is decreased traction available for stopping while the bike is leaning.
The rider is usually focused on the turn and not on the braking.
The brake controls do not work in turns.

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

22. Which of the following is not a factor in determining a person's blood alcohol content (BAC)?
The amount of alcohol consumed
How quickly the alcohol is consumed
How often the person consumes alcohol

The main factors that determine a person's blood alcohol content (BAC) are the person's body weight, how much alcohol is consumed, and how quickly the alcohol was consumed. It is always safest to not ride after consuming alcohol in any amount.

23. When entering a curve, you should position your motorcycle:
In the outside of the curve.
In the inside of the curve.
Where you can most safely handle road and traffic conditions.

All curves are different. When taking a curve, choose a lane position that is appropriate for conditions and adjust as needed.

24. When riding a motorcycle, you should:
Wear half-fingered gloves.
Wear full-fingered gloves.
Not wear gloves.

Wearing gloves while riding provides an improved grip and help protect your hands. You should use gloves that are full-fingered and made of a durable material.

25. To lessen your chances of being involved in a crash, you should do all of the following, except:
Scan your path ahead.
Be ready to act to avoid a hazard.
Turn your headlight off during the day.

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.

26. When entering a curve, you should always position your motorcycle:
On the left side of the lane.
In a position that allows you to most effectively see and be seen.
In the center of the lane.

When entering a curve, adjust your lane position to optimize your ability to see and be seen. Riding in the right portion of your lane when traveling through a lefthand curve may help you spot oncoming traffic as soon as possible. When traveling through a righthand curve, riding in a left center position may allow you to see oncoming cars early without putting you so close to the centerline that you could be hit by oncoming vehicles that take the curve too widely.

27. When riding at night, you should:
Move closer to the vehicle in front of you so you can use its lights to see farther down the road.
Keep riding at your normal speed to lower the risk of being struck from behind.
Reduce your speed and increase your following distance.

When riding at night, reduce your speed and increase your following distance. Visibility is lowered at night and you will need the additional time and space to react to upcoming hazards.

28. When being passed by another vehicle, you should travel in:
The left portion of the lane.
The center portion of the lane.
The right portion of the lane.

When being passed, the center portion of the lane is generally the safest lane position for a motorcyclist. Riding on the side nearest the passing vehicle increases the risk of colliding with it. Riding on the side farthest from the passing vehicle can also be dangerous because it may prompt the driver to return to your lane before it is safe to do so.

29. Taking a turn too fast can cause a rider to:
Accidentally end up in another lane of traffic.
Get through the turn faster.
Keep control of their motorcycle.

Taking a turn too fast may cause a rider to cross into another lane of traffic, or even leave the road entirely. It is important to slow down before entering a turn or curve.

30. The gearshift is located:
By the left footrest.
By the right footrest.
By the right handle grip.

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

31. If possible, do not ride directly next to another vehicle because:
Another driver may want to use your lane to pass.
You may be in the vehicle’s blind spot.
You may have access to escape routes.

Riding directly alongside another vehicle is dangerous because you may be in the vehicle's blind spot and the driver will not know you are there. Additionally, the vehicle may block your route of escape if any hazards should arise.

32. To execute a turn safely, a motorcycle rider should always:
Lean in the direction of the curve.
Slow down in the turn.
Turn by using only the handle bars.

When turning, you should always lean in the direction of the turn. Slow down before entering the turn.

33. It can be difficult to ride right after it starts raining because:
Some other drivers may not react quickly enough to the rain.
Pavement will be especially slippery.
Other drivers do not drive fast enough in wet weather.

Pavement can be particularly slippery after it has just started to rain. Oil from vehicles will have not yet washed away from the surface of the road, forming a slippery mixture with the water.

34. When riding in a group, inexperienced riders should position themselves:
Just behind the leader.
In the front of the group.
At the tail end of the group.
Beside the lead rider.

Inexperienced riders should ride just behind the leader. This ensures that they won't have to chase after the group, and it allows more experienced riders to keep an eye on them from behind.

35. If you must transport a load, it should be:
Carried over the rear axle.
Carried on the gas tank in front of you.
Piled up against a sissy bar or frame on the back of the seat.

Loads should be kept over, or in front of, the rear axle. Only experienced riders should carry loads on their motorcycle.

36. A sign that your front tire has gone flat is that your steering suddenly feels:

If steering suddenly feels heavy, it is possible that your front tire has gone flat. Stop riding and check your tires as soon as possible.

37. Wearing which of the following colors will make you less visible to other motorists?

To make yourself more visible to other road users, it is best if you choose to wear bright orange, red, yellow, or green clothing. Avoid wearing drab or dark colors while riding.

38. Under normal riding conditions, one of the best ways to help others see your motorcycle is:
To flash your lights.
To keep your high beam headlight turned on.
To ensure that your motorcycle is painted a dark color.

The best way to help others see your motorcycle is to have your headlight turned on (as well as your running lights, if applicable). Use your high beam headlight both day and night, whenever it is legal and safe to do so.

39. What does a flashing red traffic light mean?
Come to a complete stop and proceed when it is safe to do so.
Only stop to yield to other traffic.
Vehicles will be entering the roadway.

A flashing red traffic light means the same thing as a stop sign. You must come to a complete stop, yield to all crossing traffic and pedestrians, and proceed when it is safe to do so.

40. Compared to a car, a motorcycle needs _____ attention.
Less frequent
