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. What message will be found on a red octagon-shaped sign?
Do not enter.

An octagonal (eight-sided) sign always means "stop." You must always come to a complete stop at this sign.

2. When riding at night, a motorcyclist should:
Reduce their speed.
Increase their following distance.
Maximize their headlight usage.
All of the above.

Riding at night can be dangerous because a rider’s ability to see and be seen by fellow motor vehicle operators is limited. It is recommended that riders adjust their riding behavior to compensate for this limited visibility by reducing their speed, maximizing their headlight usage, and increasing their following distance.

3. When riding with a passenger, you may need to adjust:
The brakes.
The suspension.
The brake light.

It is a good idea to add a few pounds of pressure to your tires if you plan to carry a passenger. Also, adjust the suspension to handle the additional weight.

4. This road sign means:
Highway entrance ramp.
Road widens.
Right lane ends.

Warning signs provide notice to road users of a situation that might not be readily apparent and are usually yellow with black markings. This sign alerts drivers to the right lane ending and tells them to prepare for potential merging traffic.

5. This sign means:
Lane ends.
No right turn.
Slippery when wet.
Two-way traffic.

Warning signs prepare drivers for upcoming road conditions and hazards and are usually yellow and black. This sign tells drivers that a lane is ending and that they should prepare to allow traffic to merge safely.

6. 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.

7. When you see this sign, it means:
There is an object on the roadway.
Traffic is coming from the right.
The road is curving sharply to the left.
There is a merge point ahead.

Chevron signs like this indicate that the road curves sharply in the direction indicated by the chevron (in this case, to the left). There may be several chevron signs placed throughout a curve.

8. This sign means:
Upcoming change in direction.

An eight-sided red sign means "stop."

9. If you began a curve on the outside and no traffic is present when you are exiting the curve, you should move:
Toward the center of the curve.
Toward the inside of the curve.
Toward the outside of the curve.

If no traffic is present when you are taking a curve, start on the outside of the curve to increase your line of sight and the effective radius of the turn. As you turn, move toward the inside of the curve. As you pass the center of the curve and prepare to exit, move back toward the outside position. Remain aware of changing road and traffic conditions and adjust as necessary.

10. This sign means:
One-way traffic.
Intersection ahead.
Merging traffic from the right.
Highway curves ahead.

This sign indicates that there is merging traffic entering from the right.

11. When slowing down or stopping, you must:
Shift down through the gears.
Shift up through the gears.
Shift into neutral.

Shift down through the gears as you slow down or stop. Stay in first gear while you are stopped to ensure that you can move quickly if you need to.

12. This road sign means:
Slow down or stop.
Stop if necessary.
You must come to a complete stop.

An octagonal sign always means stop. When approaching a stop sign, you must come to a complete stop at the marked stop line and proceed only when it is safe to do so. If there is no stop line, stop before the crosswalk. If there is no crosswalk, stop before the intersection at a point from which you can see oncoming traffic.

13. To safely cross railroad tracks that run parallel to your lane, you should:
Approach the tracks at a 90-degree angle.
Approach the tracks at a 45-degree angle.
Slow down and creep across.

To safely cross railroad tracks, trolley tracks, or pavement seams running parallel to your lane, move to a lane position that will allow you to cross them at an angle of at least 45 degrees. Then, make a quick, sharp turn. If you try to edge across, the tracks or seam could catch your tires and throw you off balance.

14. On the freeway, you see a "Merging traffic“ sign. You should:
Honk at incoming traffic.
Always remain at your present speed.
Speed up to avoid congesting traffic.
Move to another lane, if safe, to let traffic enter.

When on a roadway with two or more lanes, you should make room for entering vehicles. If there is no one driving next to you, move over one lane.

15. This road sign means:
No left turn.
No U-turns.
No exit.
No right turn.

This sign indicates that right turns are prohibited.

16. When it starts to rain, it is usually best to:
Ride in the center of the lane.
Pull onto the shoulder and wait for it to stop raining.
Ride in the tire tracks left by other vehicles.

Roads become slippery when it first starts raining, especially in the center strip of a lane. When rain starts, it is generally safest to ride in the tire tracks left by other vehicles. The left tire track is often best.

17. A motorcycle operator can slow down by:
Rolling on the throttle.

Motorcyclists often slow down by simply downshifting. Motorcyclists should be aware that slowing down in this manner does not activate the brake lights.

18. A passenger on a motorcycle should:
Put their feet on the ground when the motorcycle is stopped.
Not ride without a back rest.
Sit as far forward as possible without crowding the operator.

A passenger on a motorcycle should sit as far forward as possible without crowding the operator. The passenger should keep both feet on the footrests at all times, even when stopped.

19. Low-speed crashes:
Can be fatal.
Are never serious.
Rarely cause injuries.
Happen frequently, so there is no need to worry about them.

Most motorcycle crashes occur at speeds lower than 30 miles per hour. Even low-speed crashes can be fatal.

20. The normal recommended following distance should be extended if:
The pavement is slippery.
The sun is shining.
You believe stopping will be routine.

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 your following distance.

21. Since most crashes happen during daylight hours, you should:
Not ride during the day.
Wear bright clothing all the time.
Ride on the shoulder and stay out of traffic.
Wear dark clothing all the time.

Most motorcycle crashes happen in broad daylight. You should always wear brightly-colored clothing when riding to maximize your chances of being seen, even during the day.

23. Should you wear gloves while riding a motorcycle?
Yes. Your hands may cold while riding.
Yes. They provide an improved grip and help protect your hands.
No. Gloves are not recommended as they can interfere with the controls.

Wearing gloves while riding provides an improved grip and help protect your hands. You should use gloves that are full-fingered and made of a durable material.

24. Who should set the pace in a group of riders?
The leader
The riders just behind the leader
The rider in back
The oldest rider

The last rider in a group of motorcyclists should set the pace of travel. Having the last rider set the pace will ensure that no riders are left behind.

25. 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.

26. 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.

27. When carrying a passenger, a motorcycle responds to directional changes:
More slowly than usual.
More quickly than usual.

A passenger places extra weight on a motorcycle. Because of the added weight, the motorcycle will respond to the operator's movements more slowly than it would otherwise, taking more time to speed up, slow down, and turn.

28. In a slow, tight turn, the rider should:
Counterbalance the leaning motorcycle by keeping their body upright.
Lean at the same angle as the motorcycle.
Lean in the opposite direction of the motorcycle and the turn.
Counterbalance their leaning body by keeping the motorcycle upright.

When taking normal turns, lean at the same angle as your motorcycle. However, in slow, tight turns, you should counterbalance the leaning motorcycle by keeping your body upright.

29. When riding over scored pavement in a work zone, you should:
Look downward to see the changes in the road surface.
Keep your head and eyes up.
Stay to the left side of the lane.

When riding over scored pavement in a work zone, keep your head and eyes up. Ride slowly, keep a steady throttle, and don't try to fight the handlebars.

30. Reflective, brightly-colored helmets and clothing:
Should only be worn when riding at night.
Can help motorcycle riders be more visible.
Do not increase a motorcycle rider's safety.

Wearing brightly-colored or reflective clothing can increase your chances of being seen by other road users.

31. 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.

32. You should do all of the following to lesson your chances of being in a crash, except:
Be visible by wearing proper clothing and using your headlight.
Communicate your intentions by using your turn signals and brake light.
Search for hazards in your path.
Hope the other drivers see you.

To minimize your risk of a crash, ensure that you are visible to other drivers, communicating your intentions to other drivers, and maintaining a cushion of space around you. You should search for, identify, and separate hazards. Be prepared to react to anything that happens.

33. You have an improved chance of avoiding serious injury in a crash if you wear all of the following, except:
A DOT-compliant helmet.
A leather jacket.
A sweatshirt.

Wearing a U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT)-compliant helmet can help protect you against head and neck injuries in the event of a crash. A jacket made of leather or sturdy synthetic material can also protect you against injuries.

34. 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.

35. 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.

36. When being passed, do not move into the portion of the lane farthest from the passing vehicle because:
The passing vehicle may re-enter your lane too early.
You may prevent another vehicle from passing you.
The portion of the lane nearest the passing vehicle is better.
You are more likely to experience a wind blast from the passing vehicle on the far side of the lane.

When being passed, you should not ride on the side of your lane that is farthest from the passing vehicle. Doing so may tempt the driver to return to your lane before there is actually room for them to do so safely.

39. Passengers should:
Hold onto the rider's hips, waist, or belt.
Never hold onto the rider.
Not lean into any turn.

Before beginning your ride, tell your passenger to maintain a firm grasp on your hips, waist, or belt. If there are secure handholds for your passenger, they may also hold those.
