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 human body rids itself of about one alcoholic drink per hour. If a person consumes seven drinks in three hours, how many drinks likely remain in that person’s system three hours after their final drink?

The minimum number of drinks remaining in a person's system can be estimated by subtracting the number of hours since their last drink from the total number of drinks consumed. For example: a person who has consumed seven drinks in three hours would have a minimum of four drinks remaining in their system three hours later.

2. Maintain an adequate following distance behind other vehicles:
To allow you time and space to identify and react to hazards.
So you can tailgate.
To allow for traffic counters to accurately count you as a vehicle.
To encourage other drivers to cut you off.

Maintaining an adequate following distance ensures that you will have enough space to stop or swerve out of the way if the vehicle ahead of you stops suddenly. A space cushion also provides you with a better view of any hazards on the road surface, such as potholes.

3. 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.

4. The center portion of a lane often contains an oily strip. This strip:
Is not safe for motorcyclists at any time.
Is usually safe for motorcyclists, unless it is raining.
Should always be avoided since other parts of the lane do not have the oily strip.
Adds to traction for most motorcycle tires.

Oily drippings from cars collect in a strip in the center of a traffic lane. Unless the road is wet, this area will generally still provide enough traction for motorcyclists to ride safely. Because the strip is usually no more than two feet wide, it is often possible to ride to one side of the strip and still be in the center portion of the lane.

5. All of the following will lessen your chances of being involved in an accident, except:
Remaining alert.
Identifying hazards and prioritizing risks.
Riding without a headlight.
Maintaining a space cushion.

To reduce your risk of being involved in a crash, you should remain alert and ready to react to any hazard. Identify hazards and decide the order in which you need to address the hazards. Always use your headlight to make yourself more visible and maintain an adequate space cushion around your motorcycle at all times.

6. Riding alongside a car:
Is encouraged.
Can place you in a blind spot.
Is not an issue unless the roadway is wet.
Can make driving easier for the other motorist.

Riding directly alongside another vehicle is dangerous because it may place you in the driver's blind spot. Additionally, the vehicle will block your path of escape.

7. When being passed, you should not move to the portion of the lane farthest from the passing driver because it:
Discourages the passing driver from cutting into your lane too early.
Encourages the passing driver to cut into your lane too early.
Encourages the passing driver to complete the pass as quickly as possible.
Encourages other drivers to pass you.

Moving into the portion of your lane farthest from a passing vehicle is potentially dangerous because it could encourage the driver to return to your lane before it is safe to do so. It is safest to stay in the center of a lane when being passed.

8. Without a helmet, a motorcycle rider is ________ more likely to suffer a critical head injury in a crash.
Three times
Four times
Five times
Six times

Without a helmet, a rider is five times more likely to sustain a critical head injury in a crash.

9. If taking a long trip, you should:
Try to minimize the number of rest breaks.
Use artificial stimulants, like caffeine, if you feel drowsy.
Dress warmly to avoid getting too cold during the ride.
Schedule more than 12 hours of riding a day.

To reduce the risk of fatigue on a long trip, dress to protect yourself from tiring elements, such as wind, cold, and rain. Limit yourself to no more than six hours of riding per day and take rest brakes at least every two hours. Avoid using artificial stimulants, as these only result in extreme fatigue when they wear off.

10. 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.

11. When riding in a group, the best riding formation is generally:
A staggered formation.
A single-file line.
A pyramid formation.

A staggered formation is generally best when riding in a group. You should move into a single-file line when turning, riding in a curve, or entering or exiting a highway.

12. When being followed too closely by another vehicle, you should:
Speed up.
Move onto the shoulder.
Allow the other driver to pass you.
Exit the roadway.

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 continue tailgating you at a higher speed.

13. The only way to rid your body of alcohol is through:
Drinking coffee.
Taking a cold shower.

The only way to remove the alcoholic content of a drink from your body is to allow your body time to eliminate it. There are no shortcuts to sobering up.

14. When changing lanes, you should:
Signal, use your mirrors, and turn your head.
Signal and use your mirrors.
Turn your head and change lanes.
Signal and change lanes.

Always use the proper turn signal before a turn or lane change. Use your mirrors and perform head checks before changing lanes to check for traffic surrounding your vehicle.

15. What may help if you experience slippage of your drive chain?
Tightening the chain
Loosening the chain
Using the throttle more
Applying the rear brake

If you experience chain slippage, tightening the chain may help. If tightening the chain does not reverse the problem, replace the chain before continuing to ride your motorcycle.

16. If you are being chased by a dog, you should:
Kick it away.
Stop until the animal loses interest.
Swerve around the animal.
Approach the animal slowly, then speed up.

If a dog is chasing your motorcycle, downshift and slowly approach the dog. Once you have gotten close to the animal, accelerate and leave it behind. Do not attempt to kick it.

17. If someone is tailgating you, you should:
Ride faster to shake them.
Alert the local police.
Ride on the shoulder of the road.
Allow them to pass.

The best way to deal with a tailgater is to let them get in front of you. If you can do so safely, change lanes and let the tailgater pass. Riding faster may only increase the danger by prompting them to continue tailgating you at the higher speed.

18. When braking, you should use:
Only the front brake.
Only the rear brake.
Both brakes.
Either brake, but never both at the same time.

Always simultaneously use both brakes to stop. The brakes are most effective when used at the same time.

19. To get the best protection, be sure that your helmet:
Meets Department of Transportation guidelines.
Looks sturdy.
Is inexpensive.
Is in your favorite color.

Choose a helmet that meets U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and state standards. It should fit you snugly all the way around and be free of obvious defects.

20. If you think stopping your motorcycle will take longer than usual, you should:
Lengthen your following distance.
Shorten your following distance.
Leave the road.
Speed up.

Lengthen your following distance when traveling on a slippery surface. If it will take longer than usual for your motorcycle to stop, open up to a longer following distance.
