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 DOT-compliant helmet has all of the following, except:
An impact-resistant outer shell.
An impact-absorbing inner liner.
A chinstrap retention system.
Bright colors painted on the outside.

Any U.S. Department of Transportation-compliant helmet is required to have an impact-resistant outer shell, an impact-absorbing inner liner, a comfort liner, and a chinstrap retention system.

2. When approaching an intersection, you should:
Assume other drivers see you, especially if they make eye contact.
Never assume other drivers see you.
Stay focused on moving through the intersection.
Speed up to make others notice you.

Never assume that other drivers see you, even if they make eye contact with you. It is not uncommon for drivers to look directly at a motorcyclist and still fail to notice them. Always reduce your speed when approaching an intersection.

3. How often should a motorcycle operator check their mirrors?
More often than the amount time spent looking ahead

It is recommended that you frequently check your mirrors to be aware of potential hazards behind you.

4. When preparing to pass another vehicle, you should ride in the left portion of your lane because:
It increases your line of sight.
It decreases your line of sight.
It makes it difficult to see beyond the vehicle.
It allows the other driver to speed up.

When preparing to pass on the left, you should ride in the left portion of your lane, both to increase your line of sight and to make yourself more visible to drivers already in the passing lane.

5. To provide the best protection, a helmet should:
Have a few cracks.
Not be certified.
Have frayed straps.
Fit snugly.

To ensure you are getting the best protection, you should choose a helmet that meets U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and state standards. It should fit you snugly all the way around and have no obvious defects, such as cracks, loose padding, or frayed straps.

6. Before riding, check all of the following, except:
Your tires' inflation pressure.
The amount of tread on your tires.
The reflective quality of your tires.
The general condition of the sidewalls on your tires.

Before every ride, be sure to check your tires' inflation pressure, your tires' treadwear, and the general condition of the sidewalls and tread surface on the tires.

7. A face shield:
Provides protection for the eyes and face.
Is not recommended.
Is required.
Does not protect the face as well as goggles.

A plastic, impact-resistant face shield provides the greatest degree of protection for a wearer's eyes and face. Eyeglasses or sunglasses are not an adequate substitute. In Vermont, you are not legally required to wear eye or face protection if your motorcycle has a windshield, though it is recommended.

8. How can a motorcycle operator discourage lane sharing by other drivers?
By giving dirty looks to other drivers
By riding in the center portion of the lane
By riding in the left portion of the lane
By riding in a zigzag pattern

By riding in the center portion of your lane, you will ensure that there is not a large space on either side of your motorcycle. Minimizing those spaces can help deter drivers from trying to share the lane with you.

9. In New Hampshire, a person who is age 21 or older with a minimum blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of ______ is considered legally intoxicated.
0.02 percent
0.04 percent
0.06 percent
0.08 percent

A person who is of legal drinking age with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08 percent or higher is considered legally intoxicated. It is both illegal and unsafe to ride a motorcycle while under the influence of alcohol.

10. Slippery surfaces can make it difficult to control a motorcycle. Which of the following would be considered a slippery surface?
Wet pavement
A driveway
Dry pavement
A parking lot

Wet pavement; roads covered in loose gravel or sand; muddy, snowy, or icy areas; painted lane markings; and metal covers and plates in the road can be slippery surfaces. Motorcyclists should ride with extra caution when riding over slippery surfaces.

11. To lessen your chances of being involved in a crash, you should:
Use your turn signals to indicate that you plan to change lanes.
Tailgate other drivers.
Keep your eyes focused no more than 15 feet in front of your motorcycle.
Not use a headlight during the day.

To lessen the chances of a crash occurring, you should make yourself visible, communicate your intentions to others, maintain adequate space cushions, search your path of travel at least 12 seconds ahead, identify and separate hazards, and be prepared to react to changing conditions.

12. When carrying a passenger on a motorcycle, you must:
Have a seat that is large enough for two riders.
Only have one set of footrests.
Not encourage the passenger to wear protective clothing.
Put a sticker on the brake light to warn other motorists that a passenger is on the motorcycle.

You should not carry a passenger unless your motorcycle has a seat that is large enough for two riders. The motorcycle should be equipped with footrests for the passenger. Your passenger should wear the same kind of protective gear that is recommended to operators.

13. When it is obvious that you are going to turn, you:
Do not need to use a turn signal.
Should still use a turn signal.
Only need to use a turn signal if there are nearby pedestrians.
Only need to use a turn signal if you are at a stop light.

You must use proper turn signals every time you turn or change lanes, even if you think your intentions are obvious. Signals are always important, even if no one else seems to be around to see them. There may be other vehicles nearby that you can't see or haven't yet noticed.

14. How can you increase your ability to be seen at an intersection?
Try to make eye contact with other drivers.
Make sure you always ride using your headlight.
Wave your arms.
Ride closely to vehicles in front of you.

To maximize your ability to be seen at an intersection, ride with your headlight on and select a lane position that provides oncoming traffic with the best view of your motorcycle. Maintain a space cushion that allows you enough space to take evasive action if a hazard arises. You should never assume that making eye contact with a driver will be enough to make them consciously register your presence.

15. Goggles can:
Protect your eyes and your face.
Protect your face but not your eyes.
Protect your eyes, but not your face.
Not protect your face or eyes.

Goggles can protect your eyes, but only a face shield can protect your entire face in a crash.

16. Each traffic lane gives the motorcyclist how many paths of travel?

Each traffic lane provides three paths of travel for motorcyclists: the left, center, and right portions of the lane.

17. Motorcycle headlights are:
Usually more powerful than a car’s headlights.
Usually just as powerful as a car’s headlights.
Usually not as powerful as a car’s headlights.
Usually larger than a car’s headlights.

Motorcycle headlights are generally smaller and less powerful than those of cars.

18. Motorists entering a highway from an entrance ramp to your right may not see your motorcycle. To help the entering drivers, you should:
Sound your horn.
Flash your lights.
Move to the left portion of your lane so they can share the lane, if necessary.
Move into another lane, if necessary.

Give plenty of room to vehicles merging onto a highway from an entrance ramp. Merge into a lane farther away from the entrance ramp, if necessary. If it is not possible to change lanes, adjust your speed to allow room for the vehicle to safely enter the highway.

19. Which of the following surfaces provides the best traction for a motorcycle?
A gravel road
Dry pavement
Lane markings

A number of surfaces can provide poor traction for tires. Wet pavement; roads covered in loose gravel or sand; muddy, snowy, or icy areas; painted lane markings; and metal covers and plates in the road can be more hazardous for a motorcyclist than dry pavement.

20. An advantage to keeping the size of a group of riders small is:
A small group is less easily separated in traffic than a larger group.
A small group can disregard traffic laws to stay together.
Riders will always be trying to catch up to the group.
It will be difficult to keep track of where everyone is.

There are several advantages to keeping groups of riders small. In comparison to a large group, a small group is easier for other vehicles to pass safely, is less likely to get separated by traffic or stop lights, and creates less need for slower riders to hurry to catch up to the rest of the group.
