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. When passing parked vehicles, motorcycle riders should be especially cautious of:
Cars leaving their parking spaces.
Motorists looking for a place to park.

When passing parked vehicles, use caution. You may encounter vehicles pulling away from the curb or leaving parking spaces.

2. If you see this sign above your lane, you:
May not exit the freeway.
May either continue through the interchange or exit the freeway from your current lane.
May stay in your lane and continue through the interchange.
Must exit the freeway, if you stay in your current lane.

If a yellow panel with the message "Exit only" is on a highway sign, the lane below the sign will not continue through the interchange. Instead, the lane will go off of the roadway to form a ramp. If you are in a lane directly under an "Exit only" sign, you may change lanes to move through the interchange or you must exit the highway.

3. This sign means that:
A community service group is picking up trash along the highway ahead.
Workers are on or very close to the road in the work zone ahead.
Children are at play ahead.
There is a pedestrian crosswalk ahead.

This sign indicates that workers may be on or very close to the roadway ahead, so you should take special care when traveling through the area.

4. This road sign means:
Hunting area.
State park.
Deer crossing.
Wildlife preserve.

This sign warns that deer cross the roadway in the area. You should slow down, be alert, and be ready to stop.

5. This sign means:
No parking.
Divided highway ahead.
Left turn signal.

Regulation signs regulate traffic speed and movement, displaying rules which drivers must obey. This regulation sign indicates that parking is not permitted.

6. What are the colors of signs that tell you the distance to the next exit on a highway?
Yellow with black letters
Black with white letters
Red with white letters
Green with white letters

Signs providing information about destinations are green with white letters or symbols.

7. This road sign means:
Parking spaces are reserved for people with disabled parking permits.
A circular intersection is ahead.
Traffic in the lane must turn in the direction of the arrow.
Lanes are reserved for buses and vehicles with a driver and one or more passengers.

This sign marks parking spaces that are reserved for people with disabled parking permits.

8. Riders who do not wear helmets while riding are ________ to die in a crash than riders who do wear helmets.
Half as likely
Twice as likely
Three times as likely

No matter the speed, riders who are not wearing helmets are three times more likely to die from head injuries than riders who are wearing helmets at the time of a crash.

9. This road sign means:
Sharp turn to the right.
Double curve.
Winding road.
Pavement ends.

This sign indicates that the road ahead winds with a series of turns or curves.

10. If braking in a curve:
Only use the front brake.
You may have less traction as you lean into the curve.
You will have more 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 usual traction is being used to make the turn while the motorcycle is leaning, so less traction is available for stopping.

11. When being passed by another vehicle, motorcyclists should be alert to:
The other vehicle's extended mirrors.
Objects being thrown from the other vehicle.
Gusts of wind coming from the passing vehicle.
All of the above.

When being passed, motorcyclists should be careful not to be hit by any part of the passing vehicle, including its mirrors. In addition to the vehicle itself, motorcyclists should also be aware of wind gusts coming from the passing vehicle and potential objects being thrown by a passenger in the vehicle who may not be paying attention to the road.

12. When you approach an octagonal sign, you must:

An octagonal (eight-sided) sign always means "Stop." Come to a complete stop, yield to traffic and pedestrians that have the right-of-way, and proceed when the way is clear.

13. A solid white line on the side of the road indicates:
No parking is permitted.
The right edge of a traffic lane.
Traffic must merge.

A solid white line on the side of the road is used to indicate the right edge of a traffic lane.

14. This road sign means:
Increase your speed.
Railroad crossing ahead.
Intersection ahead.
Four-way stop ahead.

This sign means that you are approaching an upcoming intersection. Watch carefully for cross traffic.

15. A diamond-shaped sign is a:
Road hazard sign.
Interstate route sign.
School crossing sign.
Speed limit sign.

Warning signs are normally diamond-shaped and yellow, although orange warning signs are used in work areas. Such signs warn that you are approaching a hazardous location or an area where special rules apply.

16. An experienced rider:
Changes positions within their lane as conditions change.
Stays in one portion of a lane at all times.
Weaves within the lane to be more visible.
Travels only on the oily portion of the lane.

Unlike drivers of larger vehicles, a motorcyclist has three lane position options in their travel lane. The rider should select whichever position is safest based on road and traffic conditions.

17. If you lock the rear tire on a good traction surface, you should:
Release and re-apply the rear brake.
Keep it locked until you completely stop.
Release the rear brake and only use the front brake.
Release the rear brake and use both brakes to stop.

If you accidentally lock the rear brake on a good traction surface, you can keep it locked until you have completely stopped. You should still be able to steer your motorcycle with a locked rear wheel.

18. If drinking alcohol, you should:
Decide if you are still fit to ride based on how you feel after you finish drinking.
Set a limit beforehand so you can still safely ride.
Not ride.
Not be concerned about your riding abilities if you feel fine.

The surest way to avoid the risks of riding under the influence of alcohol is to not ride after you have been drinking. Any amount of alcohol can impair your abilities.

19. Of the following, which is not a reason to keep a cushion of space between your motorcycle and the vehicle in front of you?
It allows you more time to respond to hazards.
It prevents you from finding an escape route.
It provides space to maneuver your motorcycle.

Maintaining an adequate space cushion ensures that you will have time to respond if another driver makes a mistake. A cushion of space also allows you the space you need to safely maneuver your motorcycle.

20. 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.

21. A skidding rear tire:
Is not serious.
Eliminates your ability to change direction.
Will usually correct itself.
Is only a concern if the front tire is also skidding.

A skidding rear tire is a dangerous condition that can result in a violent crash and serious injury or death. Too much rear brake pressure can cause the rear wheel to lock. As soon as the rear wheel locks, your ability to change direction is lost. To regain control, the brake must be released.

22. Which of the following is not considered protective clothing for a motorcyclist?
A jacket
A stocking cap

You should wear appropriate protective clothing when riding. Protective garments include sturdy pants and jackets that entirely cover your arms and legs, boots or heavy shoes that cover and support your ankles, and sturdy gloves.

23. When riding in rain or fog, you should:
Use your high beam headlight.
Use your low beam headlight.
Not use your headlight.
Alternate between your headlight's low and high beam settings.

You should use your low beam headlight when riding in snowy, rainy, or foggy weather. A high beam headlight can reflect off of these conditions and make it more difficult for a rider to see.

24. When braking, you should:
First apply the front brake, then the rear.
First apply the rear brake, then the front.
Use both brakes at the same time.
Use brakes in any order.

Both brakes should be used at the same time whenever you slow or stop.

25. To lessen your chances of being involved in a crash, you should do all of the following, except:
Scan your path ahead.
Be ready to act to avoid a hazard.
Turn your headlight off during the day.

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.

26. When turning left, you should:
Press the right handgrip.
Press the left handgrip.
Press both handgrips at the same time.
Not press either handgrip.

A motorcycle must lean to make a turn. To make it lean in the appropriate direction, press the handgrip in the direction you want to turn.

27. When traveling on wet pavement, a motorcycle rider:
Should travel in the center portion of the lane.
Should follow in the wheel tracks of vehicles ahead.
Should speed up.
Should only use the front brake when stopping.

Under wet conditions, it is recommended that you avoid the oily center strip of the lane and ride in the wheel tracks left by vehicles ahead.

28. When choosing a helmet, you will get the most protection by using a helmet that:
Fits loosely.
Meets U.S. DOT standards.
Has survived a previous crash.
Provides hearing protection.

To ensure that you are getting as much protection as possible, choose a helmet that meets U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and state standards. Helmets should fit snugly all the way around.

29. A good way to handle a tailgater is to:
Speed up.
Allow them to get in front of you.
Make gestures at them.

The best way to deal with a tailgater is to allow them to pass you. Speeding up may only result in them continuing to tailgate you at the higher speed, which is even more dangerous.

30. A potential danger of braking too hard is:
Losing traction on one or both wheels.
Coming to a complete stop before you expect to.
Popping a tire.
Taking too long to stop.

If you over-apply your brakes, you may lose traction on one or both wheels and crash.

31. In Wisconsin, helmets:
Must be worn by all operators.
Must be worn by operators who have had their license less than five years.
Must be worn by operators under the age of 18.

In Wisconsin, helmets are required to be worn by any operator under the age of 18 and any operator who holds a motorcycle instruction permit. However, it is strongly recommended that all operators and passengers wear helmets when riding.

32. When riding behind a car, you should ride:
In any part of the lane.
In the part of the lane closest to the shoulder.
In the part of the lane that places your image in the car's rearview mirror.
As close to the car as possible.

When following a car, you should ride in a position that allows the driver to see you in their rearview mirror. Usually, that means riding in the center portion of the lane. Because most drivers check their rearview mirrors much more often than they check their side mirrors, being in this lane position increases the chance that they will see you.

33. To get the best possible protection, wear a helmet that:
Fits snugly.
Is well-worn and broken in.
Is pretty loose.
Does not have a chinstrap.

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.

34. Before carrying a passenger in traffic for the first time, you should:
Read books about carrying passengers.
Practice riding on an empty road.
Flash your lights so others can see you.
Practice riding on the shoulder of a road.

Before transporting a passenger or heavy load in traffic for the first time, practice riding on a quiet road to get used to how your motorcycle handles differently with the additional weight.

35. As you approach a blind intersection, you should:
Move into the part of the lane that allows other drivers to most easily see you.
Move into the part of the lane closest to the traffic control device.
Move into the outside edge of the lane.

When approaching a blind intersection, move into the portion of the lane that will bring you into any other driver's field of vision at the earliest possible moment.

36. If your front wheel locks while you are braking, you should:
Keep the tire locked up, as it will help you stop more quickly.
Release the front brake and only use the rear brake.
Release the front brake immediately and 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.

37. A plastic, shatter-resistant face shield:
Is not necessary if you have a windshield.
Only protects your eyes.
Protects more than just your eyes.
Does not protect your face as well as goggles.

A plastic, shatter-resistant face shield helps protect your entire face, including your eyes. Goggles can protect your eyes, but not the rest of your face. A windshield is not an adequate substitute for either.

38. Where is the throttle usually located?
Near the left footrest
Near the right footrest
On the left handle grip
On the right handle grip

The throttle of a motorcycle is usually located on the right handle grip. Be sure to know where all of your motorcycle's controls are located before riding.

39. Of the following, which clothing item will not reduce injuries in a crash?
Heavy shoes
Full-length pants
Full-fingered gloves

To reduce the risk of injury, riders should wear a helmet, eye protection, heavy shoes or boots, full-length pants, a jacket, and full-fingered gloves. Clothing should be made of durable materials to best protect the wearer.
