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. Hearing protection:
Is not needed when the rider is wearing a helmet.
Is only recommended for long trips.
Should be used on all rides.

Exposure to engine and wind noise can damage your hearing, even if you are wearing a helmet. Wearing hearing protection while riding is always a good idea.

2. Mirrors on motorcycles:
Have blind spots, just like cars.
Do not have blind spots because a motorcycle is usually smaller than a car
Are not required.

Motorcycles have blind spots, just like cars. You should always turn your head to check your blind spot before changing lanes.

3. If bright sunlight makes it difficult for drivers to see a motorcycle's mechanical turn signals, the rider should:
Continue to use the mechanical turn signals.
Honk their horn to inform other drivers of any upcoming turns.
Use hand signals.

Use hand signals when bright sunlight makes your mechanical signals difficult for other drivers to see. It is extremely important to clearly communicate with other road users.

4. __________ can be a cause of collisions involving motorcycles.
Inappropriately sounding a horn
Communicating with other drivers

Following too closely, or "tailgating," can be a major factor in collisions caused by motorcycles. When riding behind another vehicle, maintain a safe following distance.

5. A person with a minimum blood alcohol content (BAC) of ____ is considered legally intoxicated.
0.04 percent
0.08 percent
0.1 percent

A person with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08 percent or higher is considered legally intoxicated. It is both illegal and dangerous to operate a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol.

6. 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.

7. Reflective, brightly-colored helmets and clothing:
Should only be worn when riding at night.
Can help motorcycle riders be more visible.
Do not increase a motorcycle rider's safety.

Wearing brightly-colored or reflective clothing can increase your chances of being seen by other road users.

8. A motorcycle must have an engine displacement of no more than:
125 cubic centimeters.
200 cubic centimeters.
400 cubic centimeters.

A motorcycle is defined by law as any two- or three-wheeled vehicle with an engine displacement of no more than 125 cubic centimeters. An operator must hold a motorcycle license to operate a motorcycle.

9. 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.

10. When riding in a group, riders should:
All maintain safe following distances.
Follow each other as closely as possible.
Not worry about distances between members.

When riding in a group, it is generally best to travel in a staggered formation. This formation allows riders to remain in close ranks while still maintaining safe following distances.

11. To swerve correctly, you should:
Shift your weight quickly.
Turn the handlebars quickly.
Press the handgrip in the direction of the turn.

To swerve away from a hazard, apply a small amount of pressure to the handgrip located on the side of your intended escape.

12. As you consume more alcohol, your ability to safely ride:
Stays the same.

The skills a person needs to ride safely decrease as the amount of alcohol consumed increases. If you have consumed alcohol in any amount, it is safest not to ride your motorcycle.

13. When entering a turn, you should:
Slow down.
Speed up.
Come to a complete stop.

Reduce your speed before entering a turn. If you take a turn too fast, you may end up veering out of your lane or even off the road.

14. Which of the following is not a benefit of maintaining a space cushion between your motorcycle and other vehicles?
You will have time to react to hazards.
You will have space to maneuver.
You will have more time to accelerate when entering a curve.

Maintaining a cushion of space around your motorcycle at all times helps ensure that you will have time to react and space to maneuver if someone else on the road makes a mistake.

15. Which of the following is not a potential problem?
An upcoming change in road surface characteristics
Surrounding traffic
Conditions that do not appear to change as you approach

Anticipate potential problems that can be created by factors on the roadway. Make a plan to reduce their risks.

16. Eye protection is:
Required for all riders.
Not required, but recommended.
Only required for inexperienced motorcycle users.

Georgia law requires a rider to wear eye protection when on a moving motorcycle. A full face shield provides a rider with the best possible protection.

17. To help others see your motorcycle, you should:
Use your headlight.
Weave in your lane.

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.

18. You should flash your brake light to:
Tell other motorists that you are riding near them.
Help other motorists see your motorcycle while traveling in slow traffic.
Tell other motorists that you are going to slow down or stop where they don't expect you to do so.

Motorcycle riders should use their brake lights to communicate with other road users. It is particularly important for a motorcyclist to flash their brake light before slowing down to make a tight, fast turn off of a high-speed roadway. Motorcyclists should flash their brake lights when slowing in any location where other drivers may not expect them to slow down.

19. When consumed together, the effects of alcohol and drugs:
Are less dangerous than when either is consumed alone.
Often balance out.

In California, it is illegal for a person age 21 or older to operate a motorcycle with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08 percent or higher. For a person under the age of 21, it is illegal to operate a motorcycle with a BAC of 0.01 percent or higher. It may be unsafe to operate a motorcycle even if you are under the legal limit.

21. The risk of a head or neck injury is reduced:
By wearing a helmet.
By riding more slowly.
By reading the owner’s manual.

A head or neck injury is always a risk when riding a motorcycle, regardless of your speed of travel. With few exceptions, the risk of head and neck injuries is greatly reduced by properly wearing a quality helmet.

22. 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.

23. 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.

24. When choosing a helmet, you should ensure that it:
Has no cracks or defects.
Looks nice.

The greatest potential for conflict between you and other traffic exists at intersections.

27. There may be less traction available for braking when:
A motorcycle is leaning.
A motorcycle is straight up and down.
A motorcycle is on dry pavement.

Any time a motorcycle is leaning, such as in a turn or curve, there is less traction available for braking. Both brakes may still be used while a motorcycle is turning, but it must be done with great care.

28. When positioning your body on the motorcycle:
You should hold yourself up with your arms.
Your arms should be used to steer the motorcycle.
You should have to stretch to reach the handgrips.

To have proper riding posture, position yourself so that you are using your arms to steer rather than to hold yourself up. Sit so that your elbows are slightly bent when you hold the handgrips.

29. 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.
