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 your motorcycle begins to wobble, you should:
Keep riding, as the wobble will likely correct itself.
Quickly brake.
Close the throttle to slow down.
Accelerate quickly.

Trying to accelerate out of a wobble will only increase the problem. Instead, grip the handlebars firmly, slow down while gradually closing the throttle, move your weight as far forward and downward as you can, and pull off the road as soon as you can. Once off the road, you should address the problem causing the wobble.

2. 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.

3. If you are feeling tired while riding, you should:
Keep going and hope to wake up.
Ride faster.
Ride on the shoulder.
Get off the road and rest.

You should avoid riding if you are tired. When making a long trip, take rest breaks at least every two hours to reduce the risk of becoming fatigued.

4. You should do a pre-ride inspection:
Before every ride.
About once every 10 rides.
Once a month.
Once a season.

A small technical fault can have much more serious consequences on a motorcycle than on a car. To avoid these consequences, inspect your motorcycle before every ride.

5. Riding directly alongside another vehicle is discouraged because:
You may have a difficult time getting to a highway exit.
You may be in the other vehicle’s blind spot.
You may block the driver's view.
It prevents other drivers from passing both of you.

Riding alongside another vehicle is dangerous because you could be riding in the vehicle's blind spot. The driver may enter your lane without warning if they can't see you. The vehicle will also block your route of escape if a hazard arises.

6. To increase your visibility, you should:
Turn off your headlight during the day.
Wear dark clothes.
Keep your headlight on at all times.
Ride in the right portion of the lane.

Strategies for making yourself more visible include wearing brightly-colored and reflective clothing, keeping your headlight on at all times, and varying your lane position as conditions demand.

7. Reflective clothing should:
Be worn only at night.
Be worn only during the day.
Not be worn.
Be worn day and night.

Brightly-colored and/or reflective clothing will increase your chances of being seen under any conditions. Remember that most motorcycle crashes happen in broad daylight so it is still best to wear bright clothing during the day.

8. If you are being chased by a dog, you should:
Kick it away.
Stop until the animal loses interest.
Swerve around the animal.
Approach the animal slowly, then speed up.

Motorcycles often seem to attract dogs. If you are being chased by a dog, downshift and approach it slowly. Then, as you approach the dog, accelerate and leave it behind.

9. When a group of riders is passing another vehicle on a two-lane road, the riders should:
Pass in pairs.
Pass in a staggered formation with several riders passing at the same time.
Pass one at a time.
Avoid passing.

When a group of motorcyclists is passing another vehicle on a two-lane road, the riders should pass the vehicle one at a time. Each motorcyclist should complete their pass before the next rider's pass begins.

10. If in a no passing zone:
A motorcycle may still pass another vehicle.
A motorcycle is not allowed to pass another vehicle.
A motorcycle may pass another vehicle if the pass can be completed before another vehicle approaches.
A motorcycle may pass on the shoulder.

Passing is prohibited in no passing zones. It is also prohibited to pass by riding off of the main-traveled portion of a roadway.

11. A plastic, shatter-resistant face shield:
Is not necessary if you have a windshield.
Only protects your eyes.
Protects more than just your eyes.
Does not protect your face as well as goggles.

A plastic, shatter-resistant face shield helps protect your entire face, including your eyes. Goggles can protect your eyes, but not the rest of your face. A windshield is not an adequate substitute for either.

12. When it comes to motorcycle safety, you should:
Assume everything on your motorcycle will work properly.
Conduct a pre-ride inspection before every ride.
Conduct a pre-ride inspection each month.
Conduct a pre-ride inspection twice a week.

A small mechanical fault can have more serious consequences on a motorcycle than on a car. Conduct a thorough pre-ride inspection of your motorcycle before every ride.

13. When operating a motorcycle on a slippery surface, you should:
Ride faster than usual.
Use only the front brake.
Reduce your speed.
Use only the rear brake.

When riding on slippery surfaces, you should reduce your speed. Make certain to use both brakes when braking and avoid making sudden moves.

14. If it is warm outside, should you wear a leather jacket while riding?
No, it will make you too hot.
Yes, but take frequent breaks to remove the jacket and cool off.
Yes, riding jackets are made to keep the rider cool, even in warm weather.
No, jackets get in the way of steering.

In warm weather, a riding jacket will help prevent dehydration in addition to serving the basic protective function that it provides at all times. Many jackets are designed to protect riders against overheating, even in warm weather.

15. When riding behind a car, you should:
Ride in a position that will allow the other driver to see you in their rearview mirror.
Assume the driver sees you.
Ride in the far left portion of the lane.
Ride in the far right portion of the lane.

When riding behind a car, you should position yourself so you can be seen in the other driver's rearview mirror. Riding in the center portion of the lane will generally ensure that you will appear in the middle of their rearview mirror, where the driver is most likely to notice you.

16. When crossing railroad tracks that are parallel to the road, you should:
Cross the tracks at a 90-degree angle.
Avoid crossing the tracks for any reason.
Try to cross the tracks at a 45-degree angle.
Slowly inch across the tracks.

To safely cross railroad tracks, trolley tracks, or pavement seams running parallel to your lane, move to a lane position that will allow you to cross them at an angle of at least 45 degrees. Then, make a quick, sharp turn. If you try to edge across, the tracks or seam could catch your tires and throw you off balance.

17. When riding in a group, you should:
Never use a staggered formation.
Place inexperienced riders at the back of the group.
Not use your mirrors.
Not tailgate other riders within the group.

When riding in a group, it is generally best to use a staggered formation. Use your mirrors periodically to check on riders behind you. Both the lead and sweep riders should be experienced motorcyclists who know group riding procedures well. Maintain proper space cushions within the group of riders.

18. Smoothly downshifting on motorcycles:
Is a useless action.
Can allow the rider to engine brake.
Is illegal.
Should not be done if other vehicles are around.

Engine braking by smoothly downshifting can be a useful option for motorcyclists. If you choose to engine brake, apply your brake lights separately to let other drivers know that you are slowing down.

19. If you are preparing to pass another operator on the left, you should:
Get into the right part of the lane so you can be seen in their side mirror.
Get into the left part of the lane to increase your line of sight.
Stay in the center part of the lane so you can be seen in their rearview mirror.
Weave in your lane to draw attention to yourself.

When preparing to pass another vehicle on its left, ride in the left portion of your lane to increase your line of sight and to make yourself more visible to any drivers in the passing lane. Use your mirrors and turn your head to check for traffic before changing lanes.

20. When passing another vehicle:
The pass may be completed in a no passing zone.
The rider may travel up to 10 mph over the speed limit to complete the pass.
The pass must be started and completed within a passing zone.
The pass must be completed on the shoulder, if one is present.

Passing must be completed within the posted speed limits, and only in areas where passing is safe and legal.

21. You will ______ hear a tire going flat.

Motorcycle riders will rarely actually hear a tire going flat. Tire failure is more often indicated by a change in how the motorcycle handles.

22. For the best protection, jackets and pants:
Should cover your arms and legs completely.
Should be loose and flap in the wind while you are riding.
Should only partially cover your arms and legs.
Should be made of wool.

To provide adequate protection when riding, jackets and pants should cover your arms and legs completely. Your clothing should fit snugly but be loose enough to let you move freely. Leather or newer kinds of synthetic materials provide the best protection in the case of an accident.

23. To be effective, a face shield should not:
Be free of scratches.
Allow clear views to both sides.
Be airtight.
Fasten securely.

An effective face shield should be free of scratches, be resistant to penetration, allow clear views to both sides, fasten securely, permit air to pass through, and provide enough space for eyeglasses or sunglasses to be worn underneath. It is important for a face shield to permit the passage of air because an airtight face shield can create fogging and make it difficult for a rider to see.

24. When preparing to pass a vehicle on the left, it is important to ride on the left side of your lane because:
The right side could be slippery.
It will give you the best chance of spotting hazards in the next lane.
People don’t usually expect to be passed on their left.
It will place you in the rearview mirror of the car in front of you.

When preparing to pass on the left, you should ride in the left portion of your lane. This lane position will increase your line of sight and make your more visible to oncoming traffic.

25. What does this signal mean?
Rest stop
High beams on
Turn right

Signals are an important part of communication when riding in groups. When the lead rider's right leg is extended, it means there is a hazard in the roadway on their right side.
