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. Common drugs, such as cold tablets:
Can affect a rider's abilities to safely operate their motorcycle.
Usually won’t affect a rider's abilities to safely operate their motorcycle.
Pose no risk to a rider's operating abilities.
Are always acceptable to take before riding because they are sold over-the-counter.

Almost all drugs, including over-the-counter medications, have the potential to impact the abilities you need to ride safely. Make sure you understand the side effects of any drug before combining it with riding.

2. Riding in cold weather for long periods of time could result in all of the following, except:
Severe chills.
Hot flashes.

Riding in cold weather for long periods of time can cause severe chill, fatigue, and even hypothermia. Be sure to wear proper clothing to protect you from the elements.

3. Crashes are more likely to occur among:
Experienced riders.
Beginning riders.
Those familiar with their motorcycle.
Those who have completed a safety course.

Crashes are the most likely to occur for untrained, beginning riders who are unfamiliar with their motorcycle.

4. How can you regain control if your rear tire locks up?
Release the rear brake.
Continue using the rear brake.
Swerve the bike in the direction with the fewest hazards.
With the brake engaged, try to accelerate.

To regain control of a locked rear wheel, the brake must be released. However, if you accidentally lock the rear brake on a good traction surface, you can keep it locked until you have completely stopped.

5. The best way to stop quickly is to:
Use the front brake only.
Use the rear brake first.
Throttle down and use the front brake.
Use both brakes simultaneously.

To stop quickly, apply both brakes at the same time. Apply the brakes firmly and do not panic if the brakes lock.

6. Most crashes occur during the day. To lessen the chance of being involved in a crash, you should:
Wear darkly-colored clothing.
Wear brightly-colored clothing.
Not ride during the day.
Look for safer routes.

To minimize your chances of being in a crash, you should make yourself as visible as possible by wearing brightly-colored clothing when riding, even during the day.

7. If you are not traveling slowly enough when shifting into a lower gear, what could happen?
Your motorcycle may lurch and the rear tire may skid.
The horn may go off.
Your motorcycle may lurch and the front tire may skid.
Your motorcycle may lurch and a warning light will go on.

If you are not riding slowly enough when shifting into a lower gear, your motorcycle may lurch and the rear tire may skid, causing you to lose control of your motorcycle. Be sure that you are moving slowly enough before shifting into a lower gear.

8. You should increase your following distance if:
The pavement is dry.
The pavement is wet.
You can see through the vehicle ahead of you.
The sun is out.

An expanded cushion of space is needed if your motorcycle will take longer than normal to stop. If the pavement is slippery, if you cannot see through the vehicle ahead of you, or if traffic is heavy and another driver may try to squeeze in front of you, open up to a larger following distance.

9. To be seen in the rearview mirror of the driver ahead of you, you should:
Ride in the center portion of the lane.
Ride in the left portion of the lane.
Ride in the right portion of the lane.
Ride in a weaving pattern.

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 frequently than they check their side mirrors.

10. When riding in a group, inexperienced riders should ride:
In the front of the group.
Right behind the leader.
At the back of the group.
Wherever they are most comfortable.

When riding in a group, inexperienced riders should ride just behind the leader near the front of the group. This allows more experienced riders to keep an eye on them from the back of the group.

11. What is often found in the center portion of the lane?
A landing strip
An oily or greasy strip
Lane markings

Drippings from cars tend to form an oily strip in the center of each lane. Unless conditions are wet, it is usually still safe for a motorcycle to operate on the center strip.

12. Riders who do not wear helmets while riding are ________ to die in a crash than riders who do wear helmets.
Half as likely
Twice as likely
Three times as likely
Just as likely

No matter the speed, riders who are not wearing helmets are three times more likely to die from head injuries than riders who are wearing helmets at the time of a crash.

13. On a motorcycle, a horn:
Is useless.
Usually cannot be heard by others.
Can be used to get someone’s attention quickly.
Should not be used.

Your horn can be a useful tool if you need to get someone's attention quickly. However, because a motorcycle's horn is not as loud as a car's, other drivers may not notice that you are sounding your horn. You should never rely only on your horn to deal with a hazard.

14. An experienced rider:
Changes positions within their lane as conditions change.
Stays in one portion of a lane at all times.
Weaves within the lane to be more visible.
Travels only on the oily portion of the lane.

Unlike drivers of larger vehicles, a motorcyclist has three lane position options in their travel lane. The rider should select whichever position is safest based on road and traffic conditions.

15. Which portion of the lane should be avoided?
The left portion of the lane
The center portion of the lane
The right portion of the lane
No portion of the lane should always be avoided.

There is no lane position that is always best and no lane position that should always be avoided. Select a lane position that is appropriate for riding conditions.

16. 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.

17. When you ride, the best gear to wear is:
Any gear that helps to protect you.
The lowest-priced gear.
Gear that looks good.
Any gear that fits.

You should wear gear that helps protect you while you ride. It is best to wear a DOT-approved helmet, face or eye protection, and protective clothing.

18. What is the primary psychoactive component in marijuana?

The main psychoactive substance in marijuana is called tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC.

19. When choosing clothes for riding, which of the following is not a good choice?
A jacket and pants that cover your arms and legs completely
Boots or shoes that cover your ankles
Gloves made of leather
A baseball cap to cover your hair

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.

20. When you are stopped, you:
Should remain in first gear.
Should remain in neutral.
Should remain in fifth gear.
Can remain in any gear.

Shift down through the gears with the clutch as you slow or stop. Remain in first gear while you are stopped so you can move quickly if needed.
