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. 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.

2. When selecting a helmet, make sure it is all of the following, except:
Designed to meet U.S. Department of Transportation standards.

You should select a helmet that meets U.S. Department of Transportation and state standards; fits snugly all the way around; and has no obvious defects, such as cracks, loose padding, or frayed straps.

3. When riding a motorcycle:
It is a good idea to drag your feet.
Your toes should be pointed downward.
You should keep your feet firmly on the footrests.
You should try to keep your feet away from the controls.

To maintain proper balance, your feet should be placed firmly on the footrests and not dragged on the ground. Do not point your toes downward, as this may cause them to catch on the road. Keep your feet near the controls so you can reach them quickly, if needed.

4. Small vehicles can appear ______ and seem to be traveling ______ than they actually are.
Farther away, more slowly
Farther away, faster
Closer, more slowly
Closer, faster

Small vehicles, like motorcycles, can visually seem to be farther away and moving more slowly than they actually are. This phenomenon can make it difficult for others on the road to accurately judge the location and speed of a smaller vehicle.

5. When entering a curve, a group should:
Ride in a single-file formation.
Ride in a staggered formation.
Ride in pairs.
Ride on the shoulder.

While riding in a staggered formation is usually best, a group should switch into a single-file formation when turning, taking curves, or entering or exiting a highway.

6. Motorcyclists may use High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes:
At any time.
Only if they are carrying a passenger.
Only on weekends.
Only between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.

In Utah, motorcyclists are allowed to use designated High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes, regardless of the number of riders on their motorcycles.

7. To swerve correctly:
Shift your weight quickly.
Turn the handlebars quickly.
Press the handgrip in the direction of the turn.
Press the handgrip in the direction opposite of the turn.

To execute a swerve, press the handgrip on the side of your desired turn. Press on the opposite handgrip to return to your original direction after you are clear of the hazard.

8. In which of the following situations should you increase your following distance?
Traffic is light.
Traffic is heavy.
You are able to see the roadway through vehicles in front of you.
There is pleasant and clear weather.

While a two-second following distance is generally adequate, you should increase your following distance any time conditions would require a longer stopping distance, such as when the pavement is slippery due to poor weather conditions. Additionally, you should increase your following distance at night, if you cannot see through the vehicle ahead, and when traffic is heavy.

9. When traveling on a motorcycle with a sidecar, the passenger should ride:
On the motorcycle seat.
In the sidecar.
Either on the motorcycle or in the sidecar.
Neither on the motorcycle or in the sidecar.

If your motorcycle has a sidecar, it is best for your passenger to ride in the sidecar. They should keep their hands inside the sidecar at all times.

10. When riding a three-wheeled motorcycle through a curve, it is best to:
Stay in the center of the lane.
Stay on the outside of the lane.
Change your path as needed.
Use the shoulder.

The cornering characteristics of a three-wheeled motorcycle or a motorcycle with a sidecar differ from those of a two-wheeled motorcycle. The best path for a three-wheeler to take through a curve may not actually follow the curve. For example, you may need to move from the outside of the curve to the inside of the curve before straightening out your path.

11. For the best protection, riding gloves should be made of:

Gloves should be made of leather or another durable material to provide proper protection for the wearer.

12. When consuming alcohol:
The body is largely unaffected until the point of legal intoxication.
The body may experience some negative effects, but they are usually minimal until the point of legal intoxication.
Driving and riding abilities are affected long before the point of legal intoxication.
There is nothing to be concerned about if consuming only a drink or two.

When someone consumes alcohol, impairment of driving and riding abilities begins well below the legal limit for intoxication. Even a single drink can cause significant impairment.

13. 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.

14. 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.

15. Most crashes occur in broad daylight. To be more visible, you should:
Wear brightly-colored clothing.
Wear darkly-clothing.
Ride without your headlight.
Ride in a weaving pattern.

Because most crashes happen in broad daylight, you should always wear brightly-colored clothing while riding, even during the day.

16. If you are hit by a wind blast caused by a passing vehicle, you will have the most room for error if you are riding:
In the left portion of the lane.
In the center portion of the lane.
In the right portion of the lane.
On the shoulder.

If you are in the middle portion of your lane, you will have the greatest room for error if your control is disrupted by a wind blast from a passing vehicle.

17. 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.

18. 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.

19. Of the following, which should you not do to improve your safety when riding at night?
Increase your speed.
Reduce your speed.
Use your high beam headlight whenever possible.
Increase your following distance.

To ride safely at night, you should reduce your speed, use your high beam headlight when you are not riding near other vehicles, and increase your following distance. Take advantage of vehicles ahead of you to provide clues about the upcoming road. Their headlights may help to illuminate the road ahead and their taillights will bounce up and down if the vehicle is being driven over bumps on the road.

20. Passing and being passed when riding a motorcycle is not much different than when driving a car. However:
A motorcycle's visibility is more critical than that of a car.
A motorcycle's visibility is not as important as that of a car.
Passing should be done on the shoulder instead of on the main roadway.
It is critical to make eye contact with the other driver when riding a motorcycle.

While the basic techniques for safely passing and being passed are the same as when driving a car, visibility is more critical when riding a motorcycle. The smaller size of a motorcycle makes it easier for you to disappear into another vehicle's blind spot, or for the driver to fail to notice you even if they are able to see you.

21. Helmeted riders are ________ more likely to survive than those not wearing helmets at the time of a crash.
Two times
Three times
Eight times
Ten times

At any speed, wearing a helmet will make you three times more likely to survive head injuries in the event of a crash than you would if not wearing a helmet.

22. Which of the following will protect your eyes from the wind?

Goggles and face shields can protect a rider's eyes from the wind. Windshields, eyeglasses, and sunglasses generally do not shield a rider's eyes adequately enough.

23. It is difficult for other motorists to see motorcycles at night. To make up for that, a motorcycle rider should:
Reduce their speed when riding at night.
Sound their horn repeatedly when riding at night.
Not ride at night.
Stay directly in front of another vehicle to be seen in their headlights when riding at night.

Strategies for safely riding at night include reducing your speed, increasing your following distance, using the lights of the car ahead to help see farther down the road, using your high beam headlight (unless following or meeting another vehicle), and being flexible about your lane position.

24. Shifting to a lower gear produces an effect similar to:

Most motorcycles have a manual transmission. Downshifting to a lower gear will slow you down.

25. If you are stopped for a moving traffic violation while wearing a helmet and are above the age of 18:
You will not get a ticket.
You will get a ticket, but receive an extra 30 days to pay the fine.
You will get a ticket, but $8 of the fine will be waived.
You will get a ticket, but it won’t appear on your driving record.

In Utah, all motorcycle operators are encouraged to wear helmets, but those age 18 and older are not required to do so. To encourage helmet use, riders who are stopped for a moving traffic violation and who are above the age of 18 will have $8 of the fine waived if they were wearing a helmet at the time of the incident.
