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 sign means:
Continue at your current speed.
You must stop ahead.
Speeding is not allowed.
There is a traffic signal ahead.

This sign indicates that there is a traffic signal ahead.

2. This sign means:
You must turn left or right.
You are approaching a T intersection.
The road that you are on intersects with a divided highway.
You are on an overpass above a divided highway.

This sign indicates that the road that you are on intersects with a divided highway. A divided highway is two one-way roadways separated by a median or guide rail.

3. A sign with this shape means:
No passing zone.
Right turn permitted on red.
Yield right-of-way.

A pennant-shaped sign marks the beginning of a no passing zone.

4. This sign means:
All traffic must turn left.
No left turn.
No U-turn.
Truck route to the left.

This sign indicates that left turns are prohibited.

5. This road sign means:
Do not enter.
No parking.
No U-turn.

This sign prohibits drivers from making a U-turn. You cannot turn around to go in the opposite direction at an intersection where this sign is posted.

6. Verify that your headlight and taillight are in working order:
Once a month.
Once a week.
Before every ride.

Before mounting your motorcycle, always test the lights. It is essential to your safety that they be in working order every time you are on the road.

7. This road sign means:
One-way road.
No right turn.
Sharp right turn in the road ahead.

This sign indicates that there is a sharp right turn ahead.

8. This sign means:
Low clearance.
Fines double in a work zone.
No left turn.
Do not block intersection.

Warning signs prepare drivers for upcoming road conditions and hazards and are usually yellow with black markings. This sign tells drivers that they are approaching an area with low clearance.

9. This road sign means:
Steep grade ahead.
The road ahead winds with a series of turns or curves.
Slippery when wet.

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 warns drivers to be careful when driving under wet conditions as the pavement will become slippery and more difficult to navigate safely.

10. What does this sign mean?
Vehicles will be entering the roadway.
Signal ahead.
Come to a complete stop and proceed when it is safe to do so.

Octagonal signs that are colored red are always stop signs. When approaching one of these signs, you must come to a complete stop, yield to any other traffic or pedestrians, and proceed once it is safe to do so.

11. This sign means:
Reserved parking for persons with disabilities.
Slow-moving vehicle.
No U-turn.

This sign indicates parking spaces that are reserved for vehicles displaying Persons with Disabilities license plates, Disabled Veteran license plates, and/or disabled parking placards.

12. This road sign means:
The road ahead curves right. Slow down to the safe speed indicated.
Divided highway begins. Slow down to the safe speed indicated.
Merge. Slow down to the safe speed indicated.
Winding road ahead. Slow down to the safe speed indicated.

These signs indicate that the road curves to the right ahead and that drivers should slow down to the safe speed indicated (in this case, 35 mph).

13. When parking along the road, you should:
Park at a 45-degree angle with the rear wheel touching the curb.
Park on the sidewalk.
Park at a 90-degree angle with the rear wheel touching the curb.
Park at a 90-degree angle with the front wheel touching the curb.

Motorcycles parked on the side of a road should be parked at a 90-degree angle with the rear wheel touching the curb.

14. This sign means:
You should stop for other traffic.
Traffic is entering from another road and you should allow additional space for drivers to merge safely into the flow of traffic.
Traffic is entering from another road and you should keep right.

This sign alerts you to the possibility of traffic merging into the main stream of travel. After checking to your side and rear, you should move into another lane, if possible, to allow merging motorists a clear path.

15. At an intersection with a yield sign, you should:
Always stop before entering the intersection.
Yield just to the traffic on the right.
Yield just to the traffic on the left.
Slow down and yield the right-of-way to other traffic.

A yield sign means that you must slow down and yield the right-of-way to traffic in the intersection or roadway you are entering.

16. The risk of a head or neck injury is reduced:
By wearing a helmet.
By riding more slowly.
By reading the owner’s manual.

A head or neck injury is always a risk when riding a motorcycle, regardless of your speed of travel. With few exceptions, the risk of head and neck injuries is greatly reduced by properly wearing a quality helmet.

17. 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.

18. Before mounting the motorcycle, your pre-ride inspection should include all of the following, except:
A tire check.
A taillight test.
A headlight test.
A paint check.

A pre-ride inspection should include checks of the tires, oil and fluids, lights, signals, clutch, throttle, mirrors, brakes, and horn. Conduct a thorough pre-ride inspection before every ride.

19. Where should a load be placed?
As low as possible
As high as possible
Behind the rear axle
On one side of the motorcycle

Loads should kept low, either fastened securely or in saddlebags. Piling loads against a sissy bar or frame on the back of a seat is dangerous because it can raise the motorcycle's center of gravity and change the balance of the motorcycle. Loads should be equally distributed on both sides of the motorcycle.

20. If you must brake and swerve to avoid a hazard, you should:
Either brake then swerve or swerve then brake.
Brake and swerve at the same time.
Choose to either brake or swerve.
Not swerve and only use the front brake to stop.

If a hazard requires you to brake and swerve to avoid a collision, you should take the actions separately. Do not brake while swerving because doing so may cause your motorcycle to fall over.

21. A proper lane position should do all of the following, except:
Allow you to set up for turns.
Allow an escape route.
Allow you to avoid wind blasts from other vehicles.
Allow you to be in another vehicle’s blind spot.

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.

22. When taking a curve while riding in a group, you should be in:
A single-file formation.
A staggered formation.

In general, it is best for a group to ride in a staggered formation. Move into a single-file formation when taking a curve, making a turn, entering a highway, or leaving a highway.

23. Passing and being passed when riding a motorcycle is not much different than when driving a car. However:
A motorcycle's visibility is more critical than that of a car.
A motorcycle's visibility is not as important as that of a car.
Passing should be done on the shoulder instead of on the main roadway.
It is critical to make eye contact with the other driver when riding a motorcycle.

While the basic techniques for safely passing and being passed are the same as when driving a car, visibility is more critical when riding a motorcycle. The smaller size of a motorcycle makes it easier for you to disappear into another vehicle's blind spot, or for the driver to fail to notice you even if they are able to see you.

24. When carrying a load, it should be:
Secured as high as possible.
Secured as low as possible.
Secured on a sissy bar.

Loads should be secured low in order to avoid upsetting the motorcycle's balance.

25. Most crashes occur during the day. To lessen the chance of being involved in a crash, you should:
Wear darkly-colored clothing.
Wear brightly-colored clothing.
Not ride during the day.
Look for safer routes.

To minimize your chances of being in a crash, you should make yourself as visible as possible by wearing brightly-colored clothing when riding, even during the day.

26. In a normal turn:
The motorcycle and rider should lean together.
The motorcycle and rider should lean in opposite directions.
The motorcycle should lean, but the rider should not.
The rider should lean, but the motorcycle should not.

During normal turns, the motorcycle and the rider should be leaning together at the same angle. In slow, tight turns, only the motorcycle should lean while the rider keeps their body straight up.

27. To adjust for added weight when riding with a passenger, you should:
Operate at a slower speed than usual.
Maintain a shorter following distance that you would if riding without a passenger.
Operate at a faster speed than usual.
Brake a little later than you would if riding without a passenger.

The extra weight of a passenger means that your motorcycle will need more time than usual to speed up, slow down, and turn. To accommodate the added weight, you should reduce your speed; start slowing earlier than normal; increase your following distance; and seek out larger gaps when crossing, entering, or merging with traffic.

28. A motorcycle needs:
Less frequent attention than a car.
More frequent attention than a car.
To have pre-ride checks performed only by a mechanic.
To be serviced only at a dealer.

Because a small technical fault can have more serious consequences on a motorcycle than on a car, motorcycles need to be checked more frequently. Complete a thorough check before every ride.

29. A DOT-compliant helmet has all of the following, except:
An impact-resistant outer shell.
An impact-absorbing inner liner.
A chinstrap retention system.
Bright colors painted on the outside.

Any U.S. Department of Transportation-compliant helmet is required to have an impact-resistant outer shell, an impact-absorbing inner liner, a comfort liner, and a chinstrap retention system.

30. If a tire goes flat while you are riding and you must stop, you should:
Use both brakes and stop quickly.
Shift your weight toward the good tire.
Brake on the good tire and steer to the side of the road.
Relax on the handgrips.

If either of your tires go flat while you are riding, hold the handgrips firmly, ease off the throttle, and maintain a straight course. If you need to brake, gradually apply the brake to the tire that is not flat. As you slow down, edge to the side of the road, squeeze the clutch, and stop.

31. To reduce the amount of time you need to react to a hazard, you should:
Always ride under the speed limit.
Cover the clutch and brakes.
Shift into neutral when slowing.
Pull the clutch when turning.

In potential high-risk areas, such as school zones or construction zones, cover the clutch and both brakes. This cuts down the amount of time you will need to react to a hazard.

32. Mirrors on motorcycles:
Have blind spots, just like cars.
Do not have blind spots.
Are not required.

The mirrors of motorcycles have blind spots, just like those of cars. Always turn your head to check your blind spot before changing lanes.

33. You have an improved chance of avoiding serious injury in a crash if you wear:
Face or eye protection.
A baseball cap.

Wearing a helmet is your best defense against injury while riding a motorcycle. Wearing a plastic, shatter-resistant face shield can help protect your face from injury in a crash.

34. What can help reduce the risk of a head or neck injury in the event of a crash?
Riding on the shoulder
Riding under the speed limit
Wearing a helmet
Not allowing a passenger on the motorcycle

Wearing a helmet is the single most effective thing you can do to reduce the risk of head or neck injuries in the event of a crash.

35. During the day, you should:
Not ride with your headlight on.
Ride with your headlight on, but only if it is cloudy.
Always ride with your headlight on.
Use your headlight if you think it helps.

You should always have your headlight on when riding, even during the day. This can make you twice as likely to be noticed by other drivers.

36. When being passed from behind, you should:
Try to move onto the shoulder.
Use the left portion of your lane.
Use the center portion of your lane.
Use the right portion of your lane.

When being passed, the center portion of the lane is generally the safest lane position for a motorcyclist. Riding on the side nearest the passing vehicle increases the risk of colliding with it. Riding on the side farthest from the passing vehicle can also be dangerous because it may prompt the driver to return to your lane before it is safe to do so.

37. If you are riding in traffic when a small animal enters your lane, you should:
Do whatever you can, including swerving into other lanes, to avoid hitting the animal.
Switch lanes as quickly as possible.
Stay in your lane.
Flash your lights to try to scare the animal.

Do everything you safely can to avoid hitting an animal in the road. If you are in traffic, however, you should remain in your lane. Swerving into another lane of traffic to avoid hitting an animal can cause you to collide with another driver. Hitting something small is less dangerous than hitting something big.

38. A larger cushion of space may not be necessary if:
The pavement is slippery.
You cannot see through the vehicle ahead of you.
Weather and traffic conditions are perfect.
Traffic is heavy.

Your following distance should be larger than usual when you are traveling under imperfect conditions. Increase your following distance if pavement is slippery, you can't see through the vehicle in front of you, or traffic is heavy.

39. When being passed, you should not move to the portion of the lane farthest from the passing driver because it:
Discourages the passing driver from cutting into your lane too early.
Encourages the passing driver to cut into your lane too early.
Encourages the passing driver to complete the pass as quickly as possible.
Encourages other drivers to pass you.

Moving into the portion of your lane farthest from a passing vehicle is potentially dangerous because it could encourage the driver to return to your lane before it is safe to do so. It is safest to stay in the center of a lane when being passed.

40. It is best to not ride directly alongside another vehicle because:
You may be riding in its blind spot.
It is distracting to have a vehicle next to you.
Other drivers may want to use the lane.
It would be difficult to see what is happening behind you.

It is dangerous to ride directly alongside a vehicle in another lane because you may be in the vehicle's blind spot and the driver will have no way of knowing you are there. It can also be dangerous because the vehicle may block your path of escape if another hazard arises.
