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. Which vest or jacket color would best help you to be seen?

Wearing brightly-colored clothing while riding will increase your chances of being seen. Bright oranges, yellows, reds, or greens are best and are preferable to drab or dark colors.

2. Which type of sign is yellow with black lettering or symbols?
Speed limit

Warning signs are yellow with black lettering or symbols and provide important information to motorists about upcoming road conditions.

3. Usually, a minimum following distance of _____ should be maintained.
One second
Two seconds
Three seconds
Four seconds

Generally, you should maintain a minimum following distance of two seconds. Increase your following distance to at least three seconds whenever you are riding under conditions that are less than ideal.

4. When riding with a passenger, you should:
Assume the passenger has traveled by motorcycle before.
Not assume the passenger has traveled by motorcycle before and explain the process.
Not let them ask questions.
Not bother with explaining anything since they are only a passenger and not in control of the motorcycle.

A motorcycle passenger needs to understand how to ensure a safe ride ride for both themselves and the operator. An operator should never assume the passenger already knows what to do. Give a passenger complete instructions before every ride.

5. You’ll have a better chance of avoiding serious injury if you wear all of the following, except:
A DOT-approved helmet.
Face or eye protection.
Ear buds.
Protective clothing.

To protect yourself against injury, you should wear a DOT-compliant helmet; face or eye protection; a jacket and long pants made of sturdy material; boots or shoes that are high and sturdy enough to cover and support your ankles; and gloves made of durable material.

6. You have been drinking alcohol. If you wait an hour for each drink before riding your motorcycle:
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.

7. Moving into another lane while taking a curve is often the result of:
Taking the turn too fast.
Lanes that are too narrow.
Not knowing how to steer.
Lanes that are too wide.

Trying to enter a curve or turn at a speed that is too fast for conditions may cause you to cross into another lane of traffic or leave the road entirely.

8. When being passed from behind, you should:
Stay in the center portion of the lane.
Stay in the right portion of the lane.
Move onto the shoulder.
Activate your turn signal.

When you are being passed from behind or by an oncoming vehicle, stay in the center portion of your lane. Riding any closer to the passing vehicle can put you in danger.

9. When being passed, all of the following are potential hazards, except:
Extended mirrors.
Objects being thrown from other vehicles.
Blasts of wind.

When being passed, motorcyclists should be careful not to be hit by any part of the passing vehicle, including its mirrors. In addition to the vehicle itself, motorcyclists should be aware of wind gusts coming from the passing vehicle and potential objects being thrown by a passenger in the vehicle who may not be paying attention to the road.

10. If you must ride over an obstacle, you should:
Decrease your speed as much as possible.
Lean the motorcycle to one side.
Speed up, if possible.
Stay on your seat and remove your feet from the footrests.

If you are unable avoid an obstacle and must instead ride over it, slow down and approach the obstacle at as close to a 90-degree angle as possible. Keep your motorcycle straight up and down, if possible. Just before contact, roll off the throttle slightly to lighten the front end of the motorcycle.

11. 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.

12. Maximum straight-line braking is done by:
Using the front brake, then the rear brake.
Using the rear brake, then the front brake.
Using the front and rear brakes at the same time without locking either wheel.
Using the front and rear brakes at the same time while locking the rear wheel.

Maximum straight-line braking is accomplished by simultaneously applying both the front and rear brakes without locking either wheel.

13. 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.

14. Which of the following provides a rider with the best protection?
A face shield
A windshield

A plastic, shatter-resistant face shield provides protection for your entire face in the event of a crash. Goggles will protect your eyes, but not the rest of your face. A windshield or eyeglasses are not a substitute for either goggles or a face shield.

15. When an operator's left arm is bent at the elbow and pointing upward, it means the operator:
Plans to turn left.
Is about to stop.
Plans to turn right.
Is about to slow down.

Instead of mechanical turn signals, operators may use hand signals to indicate turns or stops. If an operator's left arm is bent at the elbow and pointing upward, it means the operator plans to turn right or change lanes to the right.

16. When riding with a passenger, the operator should:
Maintain a longer following distance.
Increase their speed.
Deflate the tires to accommodate the extra weight.
Not warn passengers of impending hazards.

Because a motorcycle handles differently when under the weight of a passenger, an operator should maintain a larger space cushion when transporting another person.

17. A helmet should not:
Meet U.S. DOT standards.
Fit snugly.
Be without obvious defects.
Have been previously worn in an accident.

You will get the greatest amount of protection from a helmet if it meets U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and state standards, fits snugly all the way around, and has no obvious defects. A helmet worn at the time of a crash should be replaced.

18. Goggles can:
Protect your eyes and your face.
Protect your face but not your eyes.
Protect your eyes, but not your face.
Not protect your face or eyes.

Goggles can protect your eyes, but only a face shield can protect your entire face in a crash.

19. Head and neck injuries can be reduced by:
Wearing a helmet.
Wearing a leather jacket.
Using the rear brake only.
Wearing goggles.

The risk of head and neck injuries is greatly reduced by wearing a high-quality helmet. A helmet is a rider's best defense against injury in the case of an accident.

20. Which of the following is not a safe step in preventing fatigue while riding?
Protecting yourself from the elements
Taking artificial stimulants
Limiting the distance ridden in one day
Taking frequent breaks

When taking a long trip, be sure to schedule in frequent breaks to rest and try not to ride more than six hours in one day. Wind, cold, and rain can make you tire quickly, so be sure to dress to protect yourself from the elements. Avoid taking artificial stimulants, as the effects when they wear off can be very dangerous.
