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. While in a motor vehicle on a highway, it is:
Illegal to either drink from or possess open containers of alcohol.
Legal to drink alcohol if you're not driving.
Legal to drink alcohol if you're driving but not drunk.

It is illegal to operate a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol. Neither drivers nor passengers may possess an open container of alcohol in a motor vehicle while it is in operation.

2. This road sign means:
You must travel at the speed indicated.
The maximum legal speed on the roadway is 55 mph.
You must travel through the intersection at the posted speed.
None of the above.

No passing zone.
Work zone ahead.

This orange warning sign tells drivers that an area of roadwork is upcoming. When traveling through a work zone, stay alert for temporary traffic control devices.

10. When approaching a blind intersection, riders should:
Stop at the stop line before moving forward to improve their view of cross traffic.
Roll through the intersection.
Ignore the stop line and move forward to get a better look.
Stop at the stop line then proceed through the intersection.

When approaching a blind intersection that is controlled by a stop line or stop sign, you must first stop where indicated. You may then edge forward and stop again just short of where the cross traffic lane meets your lane. From that position, lean your body forward and look around buildings, parked cars, or bushes to see if anything is approaching. Make sure your front wheel stays out of the crossroad while you are looking.

11. This sign means:
Change in direction or narrowing of roadway.

17. You should flash your brake light to:
Tell other motorists that you are riding near them.
Help other motorists see your motorcycle while traveling in slow traffic.
Tell other motorists that you are going to slow down or stop where they don't expect you to do so.

Motorcycle riders should use their brake lights to communicate with other road users. It is particularly important for a motorcyclist to flash their brake light before slowing down to make a tight, fast turn off of a high-speed roadway. Motorcyclists should flash their brake lights when slowing in any location where other drivers may not expect them to slow down.

18. Mirror checks:
Are unimportant.
Should only be done on long trips.
Should be part of your normal scanning routine.
Are not helpful since you can’t do anything about what is behind you.

Frequent mirror checks should be part of your normal searching routine. Additionally, make a special point of using your mirrors before changing lanes, when stopping at an intersection, and before slowing down.

19. When you are being passed, you should:
Ride in the left portion of the lane.
Ride in the center portion of the lane.
Ride in the right portion of the lane.

When being passed, it is generally safest to ride in the center portion of your lane. Riding on the side nearest the passing driver increases the danger of colliding with them, and riding on the side farthest from the driver may tempt them to return to your lane too soon.

20. When riding a motorcycle, it is important to:
Focus only on what is in front of you.
Focus only on what is behind you.
Know what’s happening both in front of and behind you.

While it is most important to be aware of what is ahead of you on the road, you cannot ignore what is behind you. You can keep track of the situation behind you by checking your mirrors consistently.

21. A wobble, or shaking of the front wheel and handlebars, may be caused by:
Incorrect tire pressure.
Brakes that are not working properly.
A balanced load.
Excessive wind.

Most wobbles are caused by improper loading of the motorcycle, unsuitable accessories, or incorrect tire pressure.

22. When being followed by a tailgater, you should:
Change lanes and let them pass or slow down to allow for more space ahead of your motorcycle.
Ignore them.
Increase your speed.

If you are being followed by a tailgater, you should ride in a way that encourages them to pass you. Riding at a higher speed may only result in them tailgating you at a higher speed, increasing the danger.

23. Which of the following factors may affect the blood alcohol content (BAC) of a person?
The amount of alcohol consumed
The drinker's height
The temperature outside

The three major factors that can affect a person's blood alcohol content (BAC) are the amount of alcohol they have consumed, how quickly they consumed it, and the drinker's body weight.

24. When operating a motorcycle on a slippery surface, you should:
Ride faster than usual.
Use only the front brake.
Reduce your speed.
Use only the rear brake.

When riding on slippery surfaces, you should reduce your speed. Make certain to use both brakes when braking and avoid making sudden moves.

25. Reflective clothing should:
Never be worn.
Be worn only during the day.
Be worn only at night.
Be worn day and night.

Most motorcycle crashes occur in broad daylight. Increasing your visibility by wearing bright colors and reflective materials is a good idea at all times.

26. 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.

27. A plastic, shatter-resistant face shield:
Is not necessary if you have a windshield.
Only protects your eyes.
Helps protect your whole face.
Is less effective than goggles.

A plastic, shatter-resistant face shield can help protect your whole face if you are involved in a crash. Goggles protect your eyes, but not the rest of your face. A windshield is not an adequate substitute for googles or a face shield.

28. Maintain an adequate following distance behind other vehicles:
To allow you time and space to identify and react to hazards.
So you can tailgate.
To allow for traffic counters to accurately count you as a vehicle.
To encourage other drivers to cut you off.

Maintaining an adequate following distance ensures that you will have enough space to stop or swerve out of the way if the vehicle ahead of you stops suddenly. A space cushion also provides you with a better view of any hazards on the road surface, such as potholes.

29. Impairment from drinking alcohol occurs:
Well below the legal limit.
Once reaching the legal limit.
Just above the legal limit.
Well above the legal limit.

It is never safe to operate a motorcycle after consuming any amount of alcohol. Impairment of the skills needed to safely ride begins well below the legal limit.

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

31. The control for the rear brake is usually located:
On the right handlebar.
On the left handlebar.
Near the left foot.
Near the right foot.

The rear brake of a motorcycle is usually operated with the right foot.

32. When stopped behind another vehicle, you should:
Get as close as possible to the vehicle.
Maintain a space cushion between your motorcycle and the other vehicle.
Not use your rearview mirrors to monitor traffic behind you.
Look for opportunities to squeeze through the stopped traffic.

You should stay well behind the vehicle in front of you, even when you are both stopped. This will give you room to escape if the vehicle backs up unexpectedly or if another vehicle approaches too quickly from behind.

33. When braking, you should only use the rear brake.

Use both brakes any time you slow or stop.

34. You will ______ hear a tire going flat.

Motorcycle riders will rarely actually hear a tire going flat. Tire failure is more often indicated by a change in how the motorcycle handles.

35. To improve your chances of being seen, you should:
Use your headlight only at night or when conditions reduce visibility.
Always use your headlight.
Add an orange tint to your headlight.

The single most effective thing you can do to help others see your motorcycle is ride with your headlight on at all times.

36. Which of the following is not a factor in determining blood alcohol content (BAC)?
The amount of alcohol consumed
How fast the alcohol is consumed
The drinker's body weight
How often the drinker consumes alcohol

The three major factors that affect a person's blood alcohol content (BAC) are the amount of alcohol consumed, how fast the alcohol was consumed, and the drinker's body weight. It is illegal and dangerous to operate a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol.

37. It is important to flash your brake light when:
Approaching a police officer.
Someone is following too closely.
There is a stop sign ahead.
Your signals are not working.

It is a good idea to flash your brake light before slowing if someone is following you too closely. The other driver may be focused on you and be unaware of the upcoming hazard that is causing you to slow down. It is also important to flash your brake light if you are about to slow down in a place where other drivers might not expect you to do so.

38. A plastic, shatter-resistant face shield:
Is not necessary if you have a windshield.
Only protects your eyes.
Helps protect your whole face.
Does not protect your face as well as goggles.

A plastic, shatter-resistant face shield can help protect your whole face in a crash. While goggles can protect your eyes, they won't protect the rest of your face. A windshield is not a substitute for a face shield or goggles.

39. When entering a highway or curve, motorcyclists riding in a group should:
Ride single-file.
Ride in a staggered formation.
Ride in pairs.
Ride in the far right portion of the lane.

While a staggered group formation is usually best, it is better to switch to a single-file formation when turning, taking curves, or entering or exiting a highway.

40. The best way to stop quickly is to:
Use the front brake only.
Use the front brake first.
Throttle down and use the front brake.
Use both brakes at the same time.

If you need to stop quickly, apply both the front and rear brakes at the same time.
