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. A leather jacket:
Can make a rider look cool.
Is usually too warm to wear when riding.
Provides protection in a crash.
Should not be worn when riding.

For your protection, you should wear a long-sleeved jacket, ideally made of leather, when riding. In warm weather, a leather jacket can help protect you against dehydration. Many motorcycle jackets are designed to help keep you cool even when the weather is hot.

2. It is recommended that a motorcyclist:
Shift gears in a turn.
Shift gears before a turn.
Change power suddenly in a turn.
Ride the brake throughout the turn.

It is recommended that you change gears prior to entering a turn.

3. Which of the following is true?
The front and rear brakes provide equal braking power.
The front brake provides more braking power than the rear brake.
The rear brake provides more braking power than the front brake.
Only the front brake should be used when braking.

The front brake of a motorcycle is more powerful than the rear one, providing at least 70 percent of the total stopping power. Always use both brakes any time you slow or stop.

4. If you are not traveling slowly enough when shifting into a lower gear, the:
Motorcycle could lurch and the rear tire could skid.
Motorcycle could accelerate too quickly.
Front tire will likely skid.
Engine will make a loud noise.

If you are not riding slowly enough when shifting into a lower gear, the motorcycle will lurch and the rear wheel may skid.

5. A shatter-resistant face shield:
Can protect a rider's face in a crash.
Is only useful in protecting riders from dirt.
Does not offer as much protection as goggles.
Should not be used with a helmet.

A plastic, shatter-resistant face shield can provide protection for your entire face in the event of a crash. Goggles can protect your eyes, but not the rest of your face. A face shield also provides routine protection from dirt, dust, insects, rain, and pebbles.

6. If braking in a curve:
Only use the front brake.
It will be the same as braking on a straightaway.
You will have more traction as you lean into the curve.
You may have less traction as you lean into the curve.

It is possible to use both brakes while turning, but it must be done with great care. Some of the tires' usual traction is being used to make the turn while the motorcycle is leaning, so less traction is available for stopping.

7. To increase your chances of being seen at an intersection, you should:
Turn your headlight off.
Ride with your headlight on.
Try to make eye contact with other drivers.
Ride as closely as possible to the vehicle ahead.

The single most important thing you can do to help others see you at an intersection is to ride with your headlight on. Your headlight should be on whenever your motorcycle is running.

8. When riding on a slippery surface, you should:
Increase your speed.
Make sudden moves.
Move to the edge of the road.
Ride in the tire tracks left by cars.

Strategies for safe riding on slippery surfaces include reducing your speed, avoiding sudden moves, staying away from the edge of the road, and riding in the tire tracks left by other cars.

9. When it starts raining, it is usually best to:
Ride in the center of the lane.
Pull off to the side of the road until the rain stops.
Ride in the tire tracks left by cars.
Increase your speed.

Avoid riding down the center of a lane under wet conditions. Instead, ride in the tire tracks left by the cars ahead of you. The left tire track will often be best, but this can vary depending on traffic and other conditions.

10. When approaching a blind intersection with a stop sign, riders should:
Stop at the stop sign then proceed through the intersection.
Ignore the stop sign and move forward to get a better look.
Stop at the stop sign before moving forward to improve their view of cross traffic.
Proceed through the intersection without stopping.

When approaching a blind intersection that is controlled by a stop line or stop sign, you must first stop where indicated. You may then edge forward and stop again just short of where the cross traffic lane meets your lane. From that position, lean your body forward and look around buildings, parked cars, or bushes to see if anything is approaching. Make sure your front wheel stays out of the crossroad while you are looking.

11. When a vehicle attempts to pass you from behind, you should:
Move to the center portion of the lane.
Move to the left portion of the lane.
Move to the right portion of the lane.
Not be concerned about which portion of the lane you are using.

When being passed, it is generally best to ride in the center portion of your lane. Being too close to the passing vehicle increases the risk of a collision.

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

Inexperienced riders should ride just behind the leader. This ensures that they won't have to chase after the group, and it allows more experienced riders to keep an eye on them from behind.

13. The proper clothing for riding a motorcycle should:
Cover your arms and legs completely.
Cover your arms completely, but leave your legs exposed.
Cover your legs completely, but leave your arms exposed.
Be whatever makes you most comfortable, regardless of safety.

To be adequately protected while riding, you should wear a jacket and pants that completely cover your arms and legs.

14. Where is the engine cut-off switch usually located?
Near the left handgrip
Near the right handgrip
Near the left footrest
Near the right footrest

The engine cut-off switch is generally located next to the right handgrip. It is important to know where all of your motorcycle's controls are located before starting out.

15. What should you do to maintain proper control of your motorcycle while turning?
Increase your speed before entering the turn.
Keep the motorcycle from leaning.
Look through the turn to anticipate the best course of action.
Come to a complete stop before entering the turn.

To maintain directional control through a turn, you should look through the turn by turning only your head. Slow down before turning and lean your motorcycle in the appropriate direction.

16. If you wait an hour per alcoholic drink before you ride your motorcycle:
You cannot be arrested for drinking and riding.
Your skills will not be affected.
Side effects may still remain.
You will be fine as long as you ride slowly.

On average, a person's body can eliminate the alcohol content of about one drink per hour. However, it is still possible for alcohol to accumulate in a person's system even if they consume only one drink per hour. This accumulation can still affect their ability to ride safely.

17. Gloves can:
Make it difficult to control a motorcycle and should be avoided.
Help other drivers identify you.
Provide an improved grip on the handlebars.
Offer no protection.

Gloves can provide you with an improved grip on your motorcycle's handlebars. They can also protect your hands in the event of a crash.

18. Normally, you should maintain a following distance of:
One second.
Two seconds.
Three seconds.
Four seconds.

Under normal conditions, you should allow at least two seconds of distance between you and the vehicle ahead of you. Increase your following distance any time conditions are less than ideal.

19. To lessen your chances of an accident, you should:
Only ride in the afternoon.
Follow the vehicle in front of you as closely as possible.
Not look ahead and focus only on your controls.
Communicate your intentions to other drivers.

To reduce the risk of 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.

20. To be effective, an eye or face shield must:
Fasten securely.
Prevent air from passing through.
Not allow for eyeglasses to fit underneath.
Restrict your vision to the sides.

To be effective, an eye or face shield must be free of scratches; be resistant to penetration; allow clear views to both sides; fasten securely; permit air to pass through to prevent fogging; and allow room for eyeglasses or sunglasses, if needed.
