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. Making eye contact with another driver:
Guarantees that the other driver will properly yield to you.
Is not worth the effort it takes.
Doesn’t mean that the driver will properly yield to you.
Means that the other driver knows you are there.

You should never take eye contact with another driver as a guarantee that they will properly yield the right-of-way to you.

2. Can clothing help prevent injuries in the event of a crash?
No, clothing is not really for protection.
No, clothing is more of a personal choice.
Yes, but only if garments are very loose and flap in the wind.
Yes, if pants and a jacket cover your arms and legs completely.

Appropriate clothing can reduce the risk of injury in a crash. Choose a jacket and pants that cover your arms and legs, are made of sturdy material, and are snug enough that they do not flap in the wind.

3. Which factor does not play a role in a person’s blood alcohol content (BAC)?
The amount of alcohol consumed
Body weight
How quickly the alcohol was consumed
How often alcohol is consumed

The three major factors that impact a person's blood alcohol content are the amount of alcohol they have consumed, how quickly they have consumed it, and their body weight. The person's sex, physical condition, and food intake may also have some effect.

4. Usually, a good way to handle a tailgater is to:
Move onto the shoulder to get out of their way.
Speed up and put distance between you and the tailgater.
Ignore them.
Change lanes and let them pass.

Usually, the best way to handle a tailgater is to get them in front of you. If you can do so safely, change lanes and let them pass. Speeding up may only increase the danger by encouraging them to follow you at a faster speed.

5. 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.

6. If you are riding when it starts to rain, it is a good idea to:
Ride down the center of the lane.
Increase your speed.
Ride in the tire tracks left by cars.
Pull onto the shoulder of the road.

Because of the presence of oil deposits, the center strip of a lane can be hazardous when wet. When rain starts to fall, it is best to ride in the tire tracks left by cars. It is advisable to reduce your speed on wet surfaces.

7. A wobble, or shaking of the front wheel and handlebars, may be caused by:
Incorrect tire pressure.
Brakes that are not working properly.
A balanced load.
Excessive wind.

Most wobbles are caused by improper loading of the motorcycle, unsuitable accessories, or incorrect tire pressure.

8. A motorcyclist can discourage other vehicles from lane sharing by:
Riding in the left portion of a lane.
Riding in the center portion of a lane.
Giving dirty looks if another driver moves into their lane.
Riding in a zigzag pattern to fill up a lane.

Any time a driver may be tempted to try to squeeze into your lane next to you, ride in the center portion of the lane to discourage them from doing so.

9. Low-speed crashes:
Can be fatal.
Are never serious.
Rarely cause injuries.
Happen frequently, so there is no need to worry about them.

Most motorcycle crashes occur at speeds lower than 30 miles per hour. Even low-speed crashes can be fatal.

10. Where is the gearshift lever located?
In front of the left footrest
In front of the right footrest
On the left handgrip
On the right handgrip

The gearshift lever is located in front of the left footrest and is operated with the left foot.

11. If a friend has had too much to drink and wants to ride their motorcycle, you should:
Let them.
Encourage them to take roads that are not crowded.
Not get involved.
Take their keys.

Never let someone ride if they have had too much to drink. Do whatever you can to prevent them from riding, including taking their keys, if necessary. Arrange an alternative way for them to get home.

12. A simple way to make your motorcycle easier to see is to:
Ride with a large flag attached to its frame.
Ride with the headlight turned on.
Wave at other drivers.
Ride on the shoulder whenever possible.

You can make yourself easier to see by wearing brightly-colored, reflective clothing. Ride with your headlight on at all times and use your turn signals and brake light appropriately.

13. A three-wheeled motorcycle:
Handles curves about the same as a two-wheeled motorcycle.
Handles curves differently than a two-wheeled motorcycle.
Should not be operated in curves.
Should use the shoulder when taking a curve.

The cornering characteristics of a three-wheeled motorcycle or a motorcycle with a sidecar differ from those of a two-wheeled motorcycle.

14. When passing parked vehicles, motorcycle riders should be especially cautious of:
Motorists looking for a place to park.
Cars leaving their parking spaces.
Oncoming traffic.

When passing parked vehicles, use caution. You may encounter vehicles pulling away from the curb or leaving parking spaces.

15. The clothing you wear while riding should protect you from all of the following, except:
Chapped lips.

The clothes you wear when riding a motorcycle should protect you from sunburn, windburn, rain, dehydration, cold, and parts of the motorcycle. Your clothing should provide you with additional protection in the case of a crash.

16. When looking for a protective jacket or pair of pants, you should look for:
Items made of leather.
Items made of polyester.
Items made of light materials.
Items that are darkly-colored.

It is safest to wear long pants and a jacket to fully cover your arms and legs while riding. Clothing made of leather can provide the highest level of protection.

17. Your lane position should do all of the following, except:
Help you avoid road hazards.
Help you avoid other drivers’ blind spots.
Help you avoid being seen by other drivers.
Increase your ability to be seen by others.

A well-chosen lane position should increase your ability to see and be seen and keep you out of other drivers' blind spots. It should help you avoid surface hazards, protect your lane from other drivers, communicate your intentions to others, help you avoid wind blasts from other vehicles, and offer you an escape route from any hazards that may arise.

18. When riding a motorcycle, you should:
Always pick one part of the lane to occupy and never leave that part of the lane.
Vary your lane position as conditions warrant.
Only ride in the center of the lane so other vehicles can see you more easily.
Ride in a zigzag pattern so other drivers notice you.

There is no one lane position that is always best, nor one that should always be avoided. Change your lane position as necessary based on changing road and traffic conditions.

19. Which fabric provides the best protection for motorcycle riders?

Jackets and pants made of leather offer the greatest degree of protection to those riding motorcycles.

20. When riding in a group, inexperienced riders should position themselves:
Just behind the leader.
In front of the group.
At the tail end of the group.
Beside the leader.

In a group of motorcyclists, riders with less experience should be positioned toward the front of the group, just behind the leader. This will allow more experienced riders to keep an eye on them without forcing the inexperienced rider to lead the group.
