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. Which fabric provides the most protection when worn by motorcyclists?

Leather jackets and pants provide the greatest level of protection when riding.

2. Where should you position your motorcycle when entering a curve?
The outside of the curve
The inside of the curve
Wherever traffic and road conditions require

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

Maintain an adequate space cushion.
Ride very slowly.
Ride the centerline.

To reduce your chances of being involved in a collision, always allow yourself an adequate cushion of space. Maintain your space cushion when following another vehicle, being followed by another vehicle, passing, being passed, or lane sharing.

5. When making a non-emergency stop on a motorcycle:
Only the front brake should be used.
The front and rear brakes should be applied at the same time.
Only the rear brake should be used.

When making a normal, non-emergency stop, use the front and rear brakes simultaneously and downshift.

6. A motorcycle’s horn is ________ a passenger vehicle's horn.

A motorcycle's horn is not as loud as the horns of other vehicles. Motorcyclists should use their horns where appropriate but should not rely on their horns to keep them safe.

7. What does an integrated braking system do?
It links the front and rear brakes together when the rear brake is applied.
It knows when to brake automatically by understanding your riding habits.
It is connected to the gears and applies the brake when downshifting.

Some motorcycles have integrated braking systems that link the front and rear brakes together when the rider applies the rear brake pedal. It is important to consult your owner's manual for details on your specific motorcycle's braking system.

8. When you are being passed on the left, you should:
Speed up.
Ride in the right portion of the lane.
Ride in the center portion of the lane.

When being passed on your left, you should ride in the center portion of your lane. Riding in the right portion of the lane can be dangerous as it may tempt the passing driver to re-enter your lane too quickly.

9. The faster you drink alcohol:
The faster the alcohol is removed from your body.
The faster the alcohol accumulates in your body.
The less the alcohol affects your body.

The faster you drink, the faster the alcohol will accumulate in your body. Alcohol leaves a person's system at an average of one drink per hour. If you consume more than one drink in an hour, you will still have alcohol in your body after one hour has passed.

10. The best way to stop quickly is to:
Use only your front brake.
Use only your rear brake.
Use both brakes at the same time.

To stop quickly, apply controlled pressure to both the front and rear brakes at the same time.

You cannot be arrested for drinking and riding.
Your riding skills will not be affected.
Side effects from the drinking may still remain.
You will be okay as long as you ride slowly.

On average, the body can eliminate the alcohol content of about one drink per hour. However, some alcohol may accumulate in the body even if a person consumes only one drink per hour. Their abilities and judgment can still be impaired.

12. As your motorcycle increases speed, you will:
Need to shift up through the gears.
Need to shift down through the gears.
Need to put the motorcycle into neutral.

It is necessary to shift into higher gears as your motorcycle increases its speed.

13. Which of the following is not a method used to maintain control of a motorcycle in a turn?
Accelerate through the turn.
Reduce your speed before turning.
Lean into the turn.

To ensure control when making a turn, you should reduce your speed before entering the turn. Look through the turn in the direction you want to move, press on the handle grip to lean in the appropriate direction, and roll on the throttle through the turn to stabilize suspension.

14. 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.

15. When riding with a passenger on your motorcycle, you should instruct the passenger to:
Get on the motorcycle before the engine starts.
Sit as far back as possible on the bike.
Not talk or move unnecessarily.

Tell passengers to avoid unnecessary conversation or movement while on a moving motorcycle. Passengers should get onto a motorcycle only after the engine is started. They should sit as far forward as possible without crowding the operator.

23. If 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, 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.

24. What does a solid yellow traffic light mean?
The traffic light is about to change to red.
The traffic light is about to change to green.
Stop and wait for traffic to pass.

27. What should you do if you must ride on a slippery surface?
Slow down
Make sudden moves

On a slippery surface, you should reduce your speed, avoid making sudden moves, and brake by using both brakes.

28. 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.

29. When taking a curve while riding in a group, you should be in:

In general, it is best for a group to ride in a staggered formation. Move into a single-file formation when taking a curve, making a turn, entering a highway, or leaving a highway.

30. The best way to help others see your motorcycle is to:
Use your headlight.
Maintain eye contact.
Wave at drivers.

The best thing to do to help others see your motorcycle is to keep your headlight on at all times. Motorcycles sold in the United States after 1978 automatically have the headlight activated while running, but be sure that the headlight works properly before every ride.

31. When riding in a group on a straight road, motorcyclists should:
Ride in a single-file formation.
Pair up.

Apply both brakes at the same time.
Use only the front brake.
Use only the rear brake.

To stop quickly, apply both brakes at the same time. Scan the road ahead to help you avoid the need for last-minute stops.

35. A DOT-compliant helmet:
Severely limits your vision.
Allows you to see as far to the sides as is necessary for safe riding.
Can become a hazard to the rider.

While some people believe that a helmet will limit their vision, this is not the case. Any U.S. Department of Transportation-approved helmet will allow the wearer to see as far as is needed for safe riding.

36. When being passed, moving to the part of your lane that is farthest from the passing vehicle:
Is recommended because you will be farther away from the passing vehicle.
Is not recommended because it invites the other driver to move back into your lane too early.
Is not encouraged or discouraged as it has no impact on safety.

When being passed, it is not advisable to move to the part of your lane that is farthest from the passing vehicle. Doing so may prompt the passing driver to move back into your lane too early.

37. When other vehicles are slowed or stopped:
A motorcyclist should not weave between lanes of traffic.
It is acceptable for a motorcyclist to weave in and out of traffic lanes.
A motorcyclist should ride in a straight line between two lanes.

Riding between rows of stopped or slowly moving vehicles can be dangerous. Vehicles may change lanes, doors may open, or arms may be stuck out of vehicles' windows. Despite their size, motorcycles need the full width of a lane to operate safely.

38. When riding on a slippery surface, you should:
Not make sudden movements, if possible.
Handle your motorcycle roughly.
Use only your front brake.

On a slippery surface, any sudden change in speed or direction could cause a skid. Accelerate, shift gears, turn, and brake as smoothly as you can when riding on a slippery surface.

39. The front brake:
Should only be used in an emergency.
Should be used with the rear brake.
Is unsafe to use.

You should always use both brakes when you slow or stop.

40. You should pick a lane position that:
Best increases your visibility and allows for a safe cushion of space.
You like, without regard to others.
Gets you close to other vehicles.

Position yourself in the portion of the lane where you are most likely to be seen by other road users and where you can maintain a space cushion around your motorcycle.
