Use your high beam.
Use the headlights of vehicles ahead to help you see.
Be visible.
Ride only in the left portion of your lane.

When riding at night, use your high beam (unless you are following or meeting another car), take advantage of the headlights of other vehicles, and wear reflective materials to increase your visibility. You should always be flexible about your lane position, selecting whichever position will help you to see, be seen, and have an adequate space cushion.

17. When riding during the day, you should:
Wear dark clothes since it is light outside.
Wear bright clothes so other motorists can see you better.
Be comfortable, wearing shorts if it is hot.

Most motorcycle crashes occur in broad daylight. To make yourself more visible to other drivers, you should always wear brightly-colored clothing when riding, even during the day.

18. Which formation is best for a group of riders entering a curve?

A staggered formation is generally the best way for a group to maintain close ranks while also allowing each rider to maintain an adequate cushion of space. A single-file formation is preferable when taking curves, turning, or entering or exiting a highway.

19. The best source of information for your motorcycle is:
The owner’s manual.
A general book about motorcycles.
Someone who has a different type of motorcycle.
A television show about motorcycle riding.

To be sure you are familiar with the specific type of motorcycle that you are planning to ride, read the owner's manual before riding it for the first time. This is particularly important if you are riding a borrowed motorcycle.

20. You will get the most protection from a helmet if it is all of the following, except:
U.S. DOT-compliant.
Free of defects.

A helmet will provide a rider with the best protection if it meets U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) standards; fits snugly all the way around; and has no obvious defects, such as cracks, loose padding, or frayed straps.

21. Where is the engine cut-off switch usually located?
Near the left handgrip
Near the right handgrip

The engine cut-off switch is generally located next to the right handgrip. It is important to know where all of your motorcycle's controls are located before starting out.

22. When loading cargo onto a motorcycle, you should:
Pack heavier items in front of the tank bag.
Pack lighter items near the front.
Try to not place items over the rear axle.
Place items behind the rear axle.

Heavier items should be loaded in front of the tank bag. You should try to place the load over or in front of the rear axle. Putting the load behind the rear axle may affect your control.

23. Increase your following distance if:
The pavement is dry.
Riding conditions are normal.
The roadway is wet.
You can see through the vehicle in front of you.

Open up your following distance if your motorcycle will require a longer distance than normal to stop. Additionally, if you are riding in heavy traffic or if you cannot see through the vehicle in front of you, you should also increase your following distance.

24. When riding behind a car, traveling in the center portion of the lane:
Allows you to be seen in its rearview mirror.
Usually makes it difficult for the driver to see you.
Should be avoided.

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.

25. When stopping, it is best to:
Grab at the front brake lever.
Keep your knees against the gas tank and keep your eyes up.
Apply increasing pressure to the rear brake.
Only use the front brake.

For maximum straight-line braking, you should apply the brakes smoothly and firmly. As more weight transfers forward, more will be more traction available at the front wheel, allowing you to apply the front brake with progressively increasing force while reducing the pressure being used on the rear brake. Keep your knees against the gas tank and your eyes up to help keep yourself moving in a straight line.

26. The faster you drink alcohol:
The faster the alcohol is removed from your body.
The faster the alcohol accumulates in your body.
The less the alcohol affects your body.

The faster you drink, the faster the alcohol will accumulate in your body. Alcohol leaves a person's system at an average of one drink per hour. If you consume more than one drink in an hour, you will still have alcohol in your body after one hour has passed.

27. Before a ride, a motorcycle operator should check the throttle. The throttle should:
Stay in place when released.
Stay loose when released.
Snap back when released.

Check your clutch and throttle before riding your motorcycle. The throttle should snap back when you let go and the clutch should feel tight and smooth.

28. You should operate the engine cut-off switch and pull in the clutch when:
The throttle is stuck and you cannot free it.
You start to lose control in a curve.
The motorcycle starts to wobble.

If the throttle becomes stuck and you are unable to free it, immediately operate the engine cut-off switch and pull in the clutch at the same time. This will remove power from the rear wheel until you are able to safely leave the road and stop.

29. An ideal lane position should:
Increase your ability to see and be seen.
Place you in other drivers’ blind spots.
Invite others to share 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.

30. If a rider in a group wants to ride faster than the others, what should the group do?
Let the rider go ahead and meet up at a designated spot later.
Speed up to accommodate the one rider.
Split up and have every rider travel as fast or as slow as they want.
Let the rider that wants to go faster lead the group.

If one member of a group wants to ride faster than the others, it is best to let them go ahead of the group and meet at a designated spot later.

31. A simple way to make your motorcycle easier to see is to:
Ride with a large flag attached to its frame.
Ride with the headlight turned on.
Wave at other drivers.
Ride on the shoulder whenever possible.

You can make yourself easier to see by wearing brightly-colored, reflective clothing. Ride with your headlight on at all times and use your turn signals and brake light appropriately.

32. When riding with a group of motorcyclists, a staggered formation:
Is recommended at all times.
Should not be used when entering or exiting a highway.
Should be used when riding in curves.

While riding in a staggered formation is generally advisable, a group of motorcyclists should switch to a single-file formation when riding in curves, turning, and entering or leaving a highway.

33. 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.

34. If you cannot avoid a slippery road, you should:
Lean into the slippery section to maintain your balance.
Maintain your speed to improve traction.
Not worry about the road conditions.
Keep your motorcycle upright and proceed as slowly as needed.

It is best to entirely avoid slippery stretches of road. However, if there is no way to avoid such an area, keep your motorcycle upright and proceed as slowly as possible.

35. When preparing to pass another vehicle on the left, which portion of the lane should you ride in?
The left portion
The center portion
The right portion
The shoulder

When preparing to pass another vehicle on its left, you should ride in the left portion of the lane to increase your line of sight and make yourself more visible to oncoming traffic.

36. Usually, a good way to handle a tailgater is to:
Move onto the shoulder to get out of their way.
Speed up and put distance between you and the tailgater.
Ignore them.
Change lanes and let them pass.

Usually, the best way to handle a tailgater is to get them in front of you. If you can do so safely, change lanes and let them pass. Speeding up may only increase the danger by encouraging them to follow you at a faster speed.

37. Where is the greatest potential for conflict between motorcycle operators and other drivers?
At intersections
On highways
On rural roads
In parking lots

Intersections present the greatest potential for conflict between motorcyclists and other drivers. Riders should use extra caution when approaching and riding through intersections.

38. If wearing footwear with laces, the laces:
Should be tucked in.
Should hang loose.
Should be taken off of the footwear.
Should be glued together.

When riding, you should securely tuck in the laces of your footwear so that they will not catch on your motorcycle.

39. An advantage to keeping the size of a group of riders small is:
A small group is less easily separated in traffic than a larger group.
A small group can disregard traffic laws to stay together.
Riders will always be trying to catch up to the group.
It will be difficult to keep track of where everyone is.

There are several advantages to keeping groups of riders small. In comparison to a large group, a small group is easier for other vehicles to pass safely, is less likely to get separated by traffic or stop lights, and creates less need for slower riders to hurry to catch up to the rest of the group.

40. 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.
