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. The front brake can provide how much of a motorcycle's braking power?
10 percent
25 percent
50 percent
75 percent

The front brake of a motorcycle is more powerful than the rear brake. It can provide at least three-quarters of the motorcycle's total stopping power.

2. In hot weather, wearing a riding jacket:
Can help protect against heat exhaustion and dehydration.
Is discouraged because it can cause heat-related problems.
Should only be done if the jacket is a light color.
Is not important.

A riding jacket and long pants should still be worn when riding in hot weather. In addition to their other safety benefits, they can protect a rider from heat exhaustion and dehydration.

3. If hazards are on your left, you should ride:
In the left portion of the lane.
In the right portion of the lane.
In any portion of the lane.
On the shoulder.

When hazards exist to your left, it is often best to ride in the right portion of the lane. Be prepared to adjust your lane position as road and traffic conditions change.

4. When using a motorcycle with which you are unfamiliar, you should:
Test the seat to make sure it is comfortable.
Assume the motorcycle is in good riding condition.
Work the throttle, clutch, and brakes a few times before riding.
Ride as you usually do, since most bikes are similar.

Since all motorcycles are somewhat different, you should be very careful when using one that is new to you. Familiarize yourself with the motorcycle before setting off. Learn the gear pattern before riding by working the throttle, clutch, and brakes a few times.

5. You can increase your visibility by:
Adding auxiliary lights to your motorcycle.
Not using your turn signal.
Wearing dark clothing.
Waving at people.

To increase your visibility, you can wear clothing that is brightly-colored or that contains reflective materials. Adding auxiliary lights to your motorcycle, using your turn signals, and flashing your brake light when appropriate are also good ways to get the attention of other road users.

6. Texas law requires motorcycles be equipped with certain equipment. Which of the following is not a required piece of equipment?
License plate lamp

Texas law requires a motorcycle or motor-driven cycle to be equipped with a horn, mirror, steering mechanism, brakes, tires, wheel assembly, exhaust system, tail lamp, stop lamp, license plate lamp, rear red reflector, and head lamp. The vehicle must also have the proper motorcycle, serial, or vehicle identification.

7. Who should set the pace in a group of riders?
The leader
The riders just behind the leader
The rider in back
The oldest rider

The last rider in a group of motorcyclists should set the pace of travel. Having the last rider set the pace will ensure that no riders are left behind.

8. Court costs for a Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) conviction start at:

There are numerous potential consequences for a DWI conviction. Among them is being required to pay court costs, which start at $70.

9. Your lane position should:
Keep your intentions hidden from other drivers.
Encourage other drivers to share your lane.
Increase your ability to see and be seen.
Be close to the road signs.

A properly chosen lane position should provide a number of benefits, including an increased ability to see others and to be seen. It should help you avoid wind blasts, other drivers' blind spots, and surface hazards. Your lane position should discourage other drivers from trying to share your lane and provide you with an escape route, should a hazard arise.

10. A way to lower the risk of being involved in a crash is to:
Communicate your intentions to other road users.
Not look ahead while riding.
Wear dark clothes.
Ride in the parts of a lane that make it difficult to be seen.

To reduce the risk of being involved in a crash, you should always ensure that you are visible to others. Communicate your intentions through proper use of your signals, brake light, and lane position. Maintain a space cushion around your motorcycle and consistently scan the road ahead of, behind, and next to your vehicle.

11. If a driver is tailgating you, you should:
Speed up.
Allow them to pass.
Prevent them from passing.
Move to one side of your lane to allow them to share the lane.

The best way to deal with a tailgater is to get them ahead 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 keep tailgating you at a higher speed.

12. Just like cars, motorcycles have blind spots. When switching lanes, you should:
Turn your head and check your blind spot.
Look only at your mirrors.
Rely on your peripheral vision.
Slow down so any vehicle in your blind spot can pass you.

Blind spots, by definition, are areas that you cannot see by just looking in your mirrors. Turn your head to the side and check over your shoulder for vehicles in your blind spot before you change lanes.

13. Rain suits:
Should not be used.
Should not balloon when riding.
Are not needed since motorcycles shouldn't be operated in the rain.
Should tear easily.

High-quality rain suits designed for motorcycle riding will resist tearing and ballooning when a rider travels at high speeds.

14. When passing a row of parked cars to your right when there is no oncoming traffic to your left, you should:
Stay toward the right side of your lane.
Stay toward the left side of your lane.
Look to your left frequently.
Use your rearview mirrors more frequently than usual.

When passing a row of parked cars, it is generally best to stay on the side of your lane that is not directly next to the cars. This will help to protect you from potential hazards like car doors being opened or people stepping out from between the cars. If there is traffic coming from the opposite direction, it is a good idea to stay in the center portion of the lane.

15. A motorcycle operator can improve their visibility by:
Wearing darkly-colored clothing.
Turning off their headlight.
Following another vehicle very closely.
Wearing brightly-colored clothing.

To maximize your chances of being seen by other road users, you should wear brightly-colored clothing with reflective materials, use your headlight at all times, and use your signals and brake light properly.

16. Riding gloves are often:
Made of leather.
Made of wool.
Not pre-curved.
Unsafe for the rider.

Gloves designed for motorcycle riding are usually made of leather. In addition to improving your grip, gloves provide protection for a rider's hands and fingers.

17. One of the benefits of performing regular maintenance on your motorcycle is that:
The motorcycle will ride well for a long period of time.
The maintenance check will take a lot of time.
Maintenance will be costly.
Maintenance checks can often prevent parking tickets.

A motorcycle will continue to ride like new if it is properly maintained and routine inspections become a part of its regular maintenance cycle.

18. You should completely check your motorcycle:
Before every ride.
Once a week.
Once a month.
Once a year.

A motorcycle requires more frequent attention than a car. Make a complete check of your motorcycle before every ride.

19. When stopping:
The rear brake should be applied first.
The front brake should be applied first.
Both brakes should be applied at the same time.
Only one brake, front or rear, should be used.

You should use both brakes every time you slow down or stop. Always apply the brakes simultaneously.

20. If a driver is following you too closely, you should:
Flash your brake light before you slow to warn the other driver.
Pull over to the side of the road.
Slow down.

If someone is following you too closely, it is a good idea to flash your brake light before slowing down. A tailgater may be concentrating on you and not see upcoming hazards that require traffic to slow down.
