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. A plastic, shatter-resistant face shield:
Is not necessary if you have a windshield.
Only protects your eyes.
Helps protect your whole face.

A plastic, shatter-resistant face shield provides protection for your entire face. A windshield is not an adequate substitute for a good face shield.

2. Which of the following materials provides the best protection for motorcycle riders?

3. When carrying a passenger, a motorcycle takes:
Less time than usual to stop and speed up.
The same amount of time to stop and speed up as it usually does.
More time than usual to stop and speed up.

The more weight being carried by a motorcycle, the more time the motorcycle takes to accelerate and decelerate. Your motorcycle will respond to your commands more slowly when carrying a passenger than it will when you are the only person on the bike.

4. Helmets are:
Required for all riders.
Not required, but recommended.
Only required for inexperienced motorcycle users.

Georgia law requires riders to wear U.S. Department of Transportation-compliant helmets every time they ride. A helmet is a rider's best defense against head and neck injuries in the event of an accident.

Use your arms to hold up your body.
Sit at an angle so your arms can support your weight.
Sit so you can use your arms to control the motorcycle.

Are less dangerous than when either is consumed alone.
Often balance out.
Can be more pronounced than when either is consumed alone.

Many drugs, including prescription and over-the-counter medications, can impair your ability to ride safely. Some medications become even more dangerous when combined with alcohol.

Traffic control device ahead

Warning signs are yellow with black lettering or symbols and provide important information to motorists about upcoming road conditions. This sign warns that the right lane ends ahead.

8. 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.

9. A windshield:
Is a good substitute for a face shield.
Does not completely protect your eyes from the wind.

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.

Get onto the motorcycle before you.

12. 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.

13. When carrying a passenger, a motorcycle responds to directional changes:
More slowly than usual.
More quickly than usual.

A passenger places extra weight on a motorcycle. Because of the added weight, the motorcycle will respond to the operator's movements more slowly than it would otherwise, taking more time to speed up, slow down, and turn.
