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. This road sign means:
You are about to enter a one-way street the wrong way.
School crossing ahead.
Do not drive in this lane.

All traffic must turn right at next intersection.

Signs with a red circle and diagonal line over a black symbol indicate the the action represented by the symbol is prohibited. In this case, the sign indicates that right turns are prohibited.

16. When planning a long group ride, which of the following ideas should not be implemented?
The lengths of travel segments should be based on the least experienced rider.
Breaks should be minimized so the riders can get to their destination as soon as possible.
Inexperienced riders should be placed behind the leaders.
The group should maintain a staggered riding formation.

When riding in a group, the length of a route and the lengths of segments of travel should be based on the skill level of the least experienced rider. Groups of riders should take regular breaks to reduce fatigue. Inexperienced riders should be placed behind the leader so more experienced riders can keep an eye on them from behind. It is generally best to ride in a staggered formation.

17. Hearing protection is:
Not recommended.
Recommended only for long rides.
Recommended for all rides.

Long-term exposure to wind and engine noise can damage your hearing, even if you wear a helmet. It is a good idea to use hearing protection every time you ride to help prevent hearing damage.

18. When looking through a turn, you should:
Turn your head and shoulders.
Turn just your head.
Turn your head, shoulders, and torso.

Look through every turn by turning just your head, not your shoulders, and keeping your eyes level with the horizon.

19. Signals on a motorcycle:
Serve little purpose since motorcycles are smaller than most other vehicles.
Are very important to alert other motorists to a rider's intentions.
Should not be used if no vehicles are close to the motorcycle.
Are more complicated than those on a car.

You are especially vulnerable as a motorcyclist, so it is very important to use your turn signals to alert others to your intentions. Always use them any time that you plan to change lanes or turn, even if you don't think anyone else is nearby.

20. A difference between googles and a windshield is:
Goggles will protect you from the wind, but a windshield won’t.
A windshield will protect you from the wind, but goggles won't.
A windshield will keep your eyes from watering better than goggles.

Googles will protect your eyes from the wind, but most windshields will not. A windshield is not an adequate substitute for goggles or a face shield.

21. A motorcyclist can discourage other vehicles from lane sharing by:
Riding in the left portion of a lane.
Riding in the center portion of a lane.
Giving dirty looks if another driver moves into their lane.
Riding in a zigzag pattern to fill up a lane.

Any time a driver may be tempted to try to squeeze into your lane next to you, ride in the center portion of the lane to discourage them from doing so.

22. 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.

23. Which of the following is a good color to wear to be seen?
Deep blue

Orange, red, yellow, or green clothing can make you easier to see while riding a motorcycle. Wear brightly-colored clothing no matter what time of day you are riding.

24. To minimize the potential for fatigue, you should:
Turn on the radio.
Take frequent rest breaks.
Drink caffeine.

Taking frequent rest breaks during a long trip can help reduce fatigue. Stimulants, such as caffeine, can ultimately increase the danger of fatigue because you may become extremely tired when they begin to wear off. Wind, rain, snow, and other elements can also increase levels of fatigue, so dress warmly (as needed) and invest in a windshield, especially if you plan to ride long distances.

25. One of the benefits of performing regular maintenance on your motorcycle is that:
The motorcycle will ride well for a long period of time.
The maintenance check will take a lot of time.
Maintenance will be costly.
Maintenance checks can often prevent parking tickets.

A motorcycle will continue to ride like new if it is properly maintained and routine inspections become a part of its regular maintenance cycle.

26. Which of the following is not important when looking for a motorcycle helmet?
The helmet meets U.S. Department of Transportation standards.
The helmet fits snugly all the way around your head.
The helmet has no obvious defects, such as cracks or loose padding.
The helmet looks cool.

To ensure that a helmet will provide you with as much protection as possible, check to see if it meets U.S. DOT and state standards; fits snugly all the way around your head; and has no obvious defects, such as cracks, loose padding, or frayed straps.

27. When riding, you should:
Always scan the road ahead and anticipate potential risks.
Focus on the controls, including the speedometer, rather than the road.
Not be concerned with hazards, because hazards are minimal on the roadway.
Always look ahead, but try not to look for hazards.

When riding, always look well ahead of your vehicle to help you anticipate potential hazards. Doing this will help you react to hazards before meeting them.

28. If you accidentally lock your rear brake on a good traction surface, you should:
Let go of the rear brake.
Keep the rear brake locked until you stop.
Release the rear brake and only use the front brake.

If you accidentally lock the rear tire on a good traction surface, leave it locked until you can come to a complete stop. Even with a locked rear wheel, you will be able to control a motorcycle on a surface with good traction as long as the motorcycle is upright and traveling in a straight line.

29. 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.

30. 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.

31. 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.

32. 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.

33. When riding behind a car, traveling in the left third of the lane allows the driver to see you in their side mirror. What is a downside to this?
Most people don’t use their side mirrors as often as they use their rearview mirror.
The wind may prevent the use of a side mirror.
Side mirrors should not be used by motorists.

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 most advantageous to ride in the center portion of the lane where you are most likely to be visible in the driver's rearview mirror.

34. When a tire goes flat, the rider can often hear it.

You will seldom actually hear a tire go flat. Instead, tire failure may be indicated by a sudden change in the motorcycle's handling.

35. Keep an expanded cushion of space between your motorcycle and the vehicle in front of you:
When conditions will make stopping more difficult than usual.
When you want to look at the scenery.
To encourage other drivers to cut you off.
To prevent the driver in front of you from knowing you are there.

An expanded cushion of space is needed if your motorcycle will take longer than normal to stop. If the pavement is slippery, if you cannot see through the vehicle ahead of you, or if traffic is heavy and another driver may try to squeeze in front of you, open up to a larger following distance.

36. A rider's boots or shoes should:
Be below their ankles.
Cover their ankles.
Be made of a soft, pliable material.

For riding, choose footwear that is sturdy and high enough to cover and support your ankles. Soles should be made of hard, durable, slip-resistant material.

37. If a sign prohibits the use of a moped on a freeway:
Mopeds cannot be used on the freeway.
Mopeds can only be used on the freeway when traffic is moving smoothly.
Mopeds can be used on the freeway if they are not operated at speeds faster than 25 mph.

It is illegal to operate a motor-driven cycle or moped on a freeway or expressway if signs are posted prohibiting their operation.

38. When sitting on a motorcycle, you should:
Use your arms to hold up your body.
Sit at an angle so your arms can support your weight.
Sit so you can use your arms to control the motorcycle.

Sit with a posture that allows you to use your arms to control your motorcycle. You should not be positioned in a way that requires your arms to prop up your body and support your weight.

39. When riding in a group, inexperienced riders should be:
In the front.
Just behind the lead rider.
In the rear.

In a group, less experienced riders should be positioned toward the front, just behind the leader. This will allow more experienced riders to watch them from behind.

40. As you slow or stop, you should:
Shift up through the gears.
Shift down through the gears.
Take the bike out of gear.
Stay in the same gear.

You should shift down through the gears with the clutch as you slow or stop. Stay in first gear while you are stopped so you can move quickly, if needed.
