Before every ride, be sure your mirrors are clean and properly adjusted. When properly adjusted, a mirror may show the edge of your arm or shoulder, but it’s the road behind you and to the side of you that is most important.

8. This sign means:
The highway ahead curves only to the right.
The highway ahead turns sharply to the right.
The highway ahead curves to the right and then to the left.
The highway ahead curves to the left and then to the right.

Warning signs are used to warn drivers about upcoming hazardous conditions and are usually yellow with black markings. This sign warns drivers that the road ahead curves to the right and then to the left.

9. This sign means:
No U-turn.
No left turn.
No right turn.

Where this sign is posted, it is prohibited to make a right turn. It would be unsafe and unlawful to make a right turn at an intersection with this sign.

10. In addition to hazardous road conditions, riders should search for:
Traffic approaching from behind.
Oncoming traffic that could turn left in front of them.
Traffic entering from side roads to the left and right.
All of the above.

Riders should continually scan ahead of, to the sides of, and behind their motorcycles. They should look for hazardous road conditions as well as traffic that could become hazardous.

11. This road sign means:
Turn right after making a complete stop.
Right turns are not permitted.

Diamond-shaped signs are used to warn drivers of special conditions or hazards ahead. They are typically yellow or orange in color.

15. Head checks should be done:
Only when changing lanes.
Only when turning.
Infrequently, because they take your eyes off the road ahead.
Frequently as a part of your normal routine.

Frequent head checks should be a part of your normal scanning routine. Only by knowing what is happening all around you can you be prepared to deal with your surroundings.

16. The best clothing for a motorcyclist:
Feels uncomfortable.
Provides protection in a crash.
Should not stand out to other motorists.

Properly chosen clothing for riding provides a rider with protection in the event of a crash while keeping the rider comfortable and ensuring that they are visible to other road users.

17. If wearing a jacket for protection while riding in hot weather, you should:
Take frequent breaks to cool off.
Remove the jacket to stay cool while in the sun.
Keep the jacket on to protect you from the heat.

A sturdy riding jacket provides essential protection in the event of a crash, no matter the weather. Jackets also provide an additional benefit in hot weather by protecting the rider against dehydration. Many motorcycling jackets are designed to prevent the wearer from overheating.

18. 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.

19. Snow and ice melt:
Only when directly hit by sunshine.
At the same rate on all road surfaces.
Most quickly on overpasses and bridges.
Faster on some sections of the road than on others.

Snow and ice melt faster in some places than in others. Places that are likely to remain frozen for the longest periods of time include low areas, shaded areas, bridges, and overpasses.

20. When looking through a turn to see where you are going, you should:
Turn just your head.
Turn your head and shoulders.
Turn just your shoulders.
Turn your entire body.

When making a turn, look through the turn to where you want to go. Turn only your head, not your shoulders, and keep your eyes level with the horizon.

21. 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.

22. Do not change gears on railroad tracks because:
Your motorcycle may stall.
You might go too fast.
Other drivers may not be expecting you to change gears.
The uneven surface may make it more difficult to switch gears.

It is best not to shift gears when crossing railroad tracks. There is a chance your motorcycle might stall while you are on the tracks.

23. Riding on the far side of a lane when following another vehicle:
Is recommended because you will be seen easily.
Is not recommended because drivers seldom use their side mirrors and may not see you.
Is recommended because a passenger in the vehicle may tell the driver that you are there.
Is illegal because you have to ride in the center portion of the lane.

Most drivers do not look at their side mirrors as often as they look at their rearview mirror. Therefore, when following a car, it is generally best to ride in the center portion of the lane where you are most likely to be visible in the driver's rearview mirror.

24. The best lane position for a motorcycle:
Is in the left part of a lane, next to the centerline.
Is in the right part of a lane, next to the curb.
Can vary depending on road and traffic conditions.

There is no single lane position that is best at all times. Choose the lane position that allows the most visibility and space around you. Change your lane position as traffic situations change.

25. Unlike other substances, alcohol:
Is very quickly absorbed into the bloodstream.
Needs to be digested to enter the bloodstream.
Can improve your riding ability.

Unlike other substances, alcohol does not need to be digested before entering the bloodstream. It is absorbed directly through the walls of the stomach and small intestine, quickly reaching and affecting the brain.

26. When you are stopped, you:
Should remain in first gear.
Should remain in neutral.
Should remain in fifth gear.
Can remain in any gear.

Shift down through the gears with the clutch as you slow or stop. Remain in first gear while you are stopped so you can move quickly if needed.

27. Your lane position should:
Allow you to blend in with traffic.
Provide an escape route.
Encourage others to use your lane.

A properly chosen lane position should provide a number of benefits, including an increased ability to see others and to be seen. It should help you avoid wind blasts, other drivers' blind spots, and surface hazards. Your lane position should discourage other drivers from trying to share your lane and provide you with an escape route, should a hazard arise.

28. Riding at night:
Is discouraged.
Is made safer by wearing reflective clothing.
Is not safe because other drivers cannot see your turn signals.
Should only be done in the city.

You should wear reflective materials when riding at night to make yourself more visible to other road users.

29. If a dog is chasing your motorcycle, you should:
Swerve around the dog.
Slow down, let the dog approach, and accelerate away from the animal.
Park and wait for the dog to lose interest.

Motorcycles often seem to attract dogs. If you are being chased by a dog, downshift and approach it slowly. Then, as you approach the dog, accelerate and leave it behind.

30. One way to tell if your rear tire has gone flat while riding is if:
There is a hissing noise coming from the rear of the bike.
The back end is jerking from side to side.
You are unable to accelerate.
The rear brake does not work.

If your rear tire fails, the back of your motorcycle will likely jerk from side to side. It is rare for motorcyclists to actually hear a tire fail.

31. When is it important for a rider to use their mirrors?
When slowing down or stopping suddenly
When stopped at an intersection
When changing lanes
All of the above.

It is particularly important for a rider to check their mirrors when slowing down or stopping, when stopped at an intersection, when changing lanes, and when turning.

32. If your front wheel locks while you are braking, you should:
Keep the tire locked until your next stop.
Continue squeezing the front brake lever.
Release the front brake and immediately re-apply it.

If the front wheel locks up while you are braking, release the pressure from the front brake. Immediately re-apply pressure to the brake with controlled gradual pressure.

33. When riding downhill or shifting into first gear, you may need to:
Use your brakes to slow down before downshifting safely.
Speed up before downshifting safely.
Swerve to the left.
Flash your brakes to ensure that drivers behind you know you are downshifting.

Before shifting into a lower gear, make sure you are riding slowly enough to shift safely. Downshifting while going too fast may cause the motorcycle to lurch and the rear wheel to skid. When riding downhill or shifting into first gear, you may need to use the brakes to slow to a safe speed before downshifting.

34. If your motorcycle begins to weave while you are riding over rain grooves or bridge gratings, you should:
Relax, maintain a steady speed, and ride straight across the surface.
Tighten your hold on the handle grips and increase your speed to get past the hazard.
Travel in a zigzag motion.
Ride on the shoulder instead of on the grooves.

The weaving motion that occurs when a motorcycle rides over rain grooves or bridge gratings is generally not dangerous. If you experience weaving when riding over one of these surfaces, simply relax and proceed straight across the grooves or gratings at a steady speed. Trying to compensate for the weaving motion by zigzagging is more dangerous than riding straight.

35. When changing lanes, riders should:
Rely only on their mirrors to identify other vehicles.
Turn their head to look for traffic behind them.
Not worry about other traffic.
Slam on the brakes to allow any vehicles in their blind spot to pass.

A motorcycle has blind spots just like any other vehicle. A rider must always turn their head to check for traffic before changing lanes.

36. When riding with a passenger, the operator should:
Maintain a longer following distance.
Increase their speed.
Deflate the tires to accommodate the extra weight.
Not warn passengers of impending hazards.

Because a motorcycle handles differently when under the weight of a passenger, an operator should maintain a larger space cushion when transporting another person.

37. When approaching a blind intersection, you should:
Ride in the portion of the lane that will bring you into other drivers' fields of vision at the earliest possible moment.
Always be in the left lane to be the farthest from oncoming traffic.
Slowly sneak up to the intersection.
Weave slightly in your lane so your headlight has a better chance of being spotted.

When approaching a blind intersection, move into the part of the lane that will bring you into an oncoming driver's field of vision at the earliest possible moment. For example, when approaching a blind corner to your right, you may be seen sooner if you are in the left portion of your lane and not in the center portion.

38. A good way to handle a tailgater is to:
Encourage the tailgater to pass by slowing down or changing lanes.
Speed up to put distance between you and the tailgater.
Ignore the tailgater.

If you can do so safely, change lanes and let the tailgater pass. Speeding up may only result in them continuing to tailgate you at a higher speed, increasing the danger.

39. Most motorcycle/automobile accidents occur:
At intersections.
On the open road.
In parking lots.

Most collisions between motorcycles and automobiles take place at intersections. The most common cause of these accidents is the automobile operator failing to properly yield the right-of-way to the motorcyclist.

40. Riding directly alongside another vehicle is discouraged because:
You may have a difficult time getting to a highway exit.
You may be in the other vehicle’s blind spot.
You may block the driver's view.
It prevents other drivers from passing both of you.

Riding alongside another vehicle is dangerous because you could be riding in the vehicle's blind spot. The driver may enter your lane without warning if they can't see you. The vehicle will also block your route of escape if a hazard arises.
