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. When both braking and swerving must be done to avoid an unexpected hazard, a rider should:
Perform one action, then the other.
Perform both actions at the same time and apply extra braking pressure.
Perform both actions at the same time, but mainly focus on swerving.
Not perform either action.

Because you need adequate traction to swerve safely, you should not brake and swerve at the same time. Instead, if you approach a hazard that requires you to brake and swerve, you should perform one action and then the other.

2. A person may be exempt from wearing a helmet while riding:
If they are 21 years of age or older and have completed an approved Motorcycle Operator Training Course.
Under no circumstances. A person on a motorcycle must always wear a helmet.
If they have had no accidents on their driving record for five consecutive years.
If they have had no moving violations on their driving record for five consecutive years.

In Texas, a rider who is 21 years of age or older is not required to wear a helmet if they have completed a Motorcycle Operator Training Course that is approved by the Department of Public Safety. They may also be exempt from the statewide helmet requirement if they are covered by medical insurance. It is recommended that all motorcyclists wear safety helmets while riding, even if it is not required.

3. Where is the greatest potential for conflict between a motorcycle and other traffic?
Parking lots
Residential areas

The greatest potential for conflict between your motorcycle and other traffic is at intersections. Be extra alert when riding somewhere where another vehicle may cross in front of your path of travel.

4. Face shields and goggles:
Will likely never need to be replaced.
Will develop scratches and become brittle, requiring regular replacement.
Should be made of breakable materials so they can break away in the event of a crash.
Should not allow air to pass through.

Face shields and goggles, being made of plastic, will develop scratches and become brittle as they age. Replace them regularly to ensure maximum protection and comfort.

5. When entering a turn, a rider should:
Speed up.
Reduce their speed.
Move their shoulders to match the angle of the turn.
Sit up as high as possible.

Before entering a turn, a motorcyclist should reduce their speed by closing the throttle and, if necessary, applying both brakes.

6. If a tire goes flat while you are riding and you must stop, you should:
Use both brakes and stop quickly.
Shift your weight toward the good tire.
Brake on the good tire and steer to the side of the road.
Relax on the handgrips.

If either of your tires go flat while you are riding, hold the handgrips firmly, ease off the throttle, and maintain a straight course. If you need to brake, gradually apply the brake to the tire that is not flat. As you slow down, edge to the side of the road, squeeze the clutch, and stop.

7. Which of the following is not a possible cause of a wobble on your motorcycle?
Incorrect tire pressure
Improper loading
Unsuitable accessories
Uneven road

Most wobbles can be traced to improper loading, unsuitable accessories, or incorrect tire pressure. Do not try to accelerate out of a wobble.

8. Smoothly downshifting on motorcycles:
Is a useless action.
Can allow the rider to engine brake.
Is illegal.
Should not be done if other vehicles are around.

Engine braking by smoothly downshifting can be a useful option for motorcyclists. If you choose to engine brake, apply your brake lights separately to let other drivers know that you are slowing down.

9. Which of the following is not considered protective clothing for a motorcyclist?
A jacket
A stocking cap

You should wear appropriate protective clothing when riding. Protective garments include sturdy pants and jackets that entirely cover your arms and legs, boots or heavy shoes that cover and support your ankles, and sturdy gloves.

10. If the throttle is stuck, you should:
Jump off the motorcycle.
Apply the brakes.
Twist the throttle back and forth several times.
Not try to twist the throttle.

If your throttle becomes stuck, try twisting it back and forth several times. If this does not free your throttle, immediately operate the engine cut-off switch and pull in the clutch at the same time.

11. To stop quickly, it is best to:
Throttle down and use the front brake.
Use the rear brake only.
Use the front brake only.
Use both brakes at the same time.

To stop quickly, apply both brakes at the same time.

12. Why should you use both the front and rear brakes every time you slow or stop?
Using only one brake will cause the brakes to wear unevenly.
It develops good braking habits for emergency situations.
Using both brakes is the only way to slow down a motorcycle.
The brakes only work when both are applied.

Using both brakes even in normal stopping stops will help you develop the habit of always using both. Having this habit will serve you well in emergencies, where using both brakes may be critical.

13. The control for the rear brake is usually located:
On the right handlebar.
On the left handlebar.
Near the left foot.
Near the right foot.

The rear brake of a motorcycle is usually operated with the right foot.

14. When an operator's left arm is extended straight out to the left, 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 extended straight out to the left, it means the operator plans to turn left or change lanes to the left.

15. If you are feeling tired while riding, you should:
Keep going and hope to wake up.
Ride faster.
Ride on the shoulder.
Get off the road and rest.

You should avoid riding if you are tired. When making a long trip, take rest breaks at least every two hours to reduce the risk of becoming fatigued.

16. When riding with a passenger, you should:
Ride faster than usual.
Rider more slowly than usual.
Start slowing later than usual.
Try to squeeze into smaller gaps in traffic.

The added weight of a passenger will affect the handling of your motorcycle. Expect your motorcycle to accelerate more slowly than usual, turn more slowly than usual, and require extra space to come to a complete stop. Ride more slowly, start slowing sooner when approaching a stop, open up a larger space cushion, and wait for larger gaps when crossing, entering, or merging into traffic.

17. A motorcyclist is well-protected if they are wearing:
A jacket that allows the arms to be exposed.
Boots with tall heels.
Leather gloves.
Shoes that stop below their ankle.

For your protection while riding, it is best to wear a jacket and pants that cover your arms and legs completely. Boots or shoes should be tall and sturdy enough to cover and support your ankles. Footwear should have low heels that will not catch on the foot pegs or rough road surfaces. Gloves made of leather or another durable material will help protect your hands in the event of a crash while providing you with an improved grip on the controls.

18. When following another vehicle as a beginning rider, you should:
Maintain a minimum four-second following distance.
Get as close to the other vehicle as possible.
Never be concerned about your following distance.
Always ride in the left portion of the lane so the driver can easily see you.

A following distance of at least four seconds is recommended for beginning riders. Increase your following distance any time conditions are less than perfect.

19. 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.

20. Your motorcycle’s brake light is:
More noticeable than a car’s brake lights.
Less noticeable than a car’s brake lights.
Less important than a car’s brake lights.
More easily seen than a car’s brake lights.

The brake light of a motorcycle is usually not as noticeable as the brake lights of a car. Flashing your brake light before slowing or stopping can help other drivers notice that you are about to brake.
