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:
Sharp right turn.
A road joins from the right.
The road ahead turns sharply right, then sharply left.
Winding road ahead.

This sign indicates that the road ahead turns sharply to the right and then sharply to the left.

2. This sign means:
Side road.
Low clearance.
Merging traffic.
Prepare to stop.

Warning signs prepare drivers for upcoming road conditions and hazards and are usually yellow with black markings. This sign tells drivers to be aware of potential traffic entering from an upcoming side road.

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

4. This sign means:
There is a detour ahead.
You must stop for flaggers.
The road ahead is closed to traffic.
The highway ahead is undergoing maintenance.

Construction and maintenance signs are orange-colored and are used to notify drivers of unusual or potentially dangerous conditions in or near work areas. This sign warns drivers that they are approaching a construction zone and that they should prepare to lower their speed and drive with extraordinary caution.

Right turn.
Lane change.
Road curve.

This sign indicates that a T intersection is ahead.

7. This road sign means:
When pavement is wet, reduce your speed.
The road ahead winds in a series of turns or curves.
Traffic increases ahead.

Warning signs are usually yellow with black markings. This sign warns drivers that the roadway will be slippery when wet and they should reduce their speed accordingly.

Crossroad ahead.

This sign indicates that there is a crossroad ahead.

9. You may ride around lowered gates at a railroad crossing:
Under no circumstances.
When the lights have stopped flashing.
When other drivers drive around the gates.

You are required to stop at any railroad crossing when signals warn of an approaching train. These signals may include flashing red lights, a lowered crossing gate, a flagger signaling, or a train’s audible signal of warning. It is against the law to go around a lowered gate.

10. What does this road sign mean?
Winding road
Loose gravel
Slippery when wet

This sign indicates that the road may be slippery when wet. Exercise caution when driving on a slippery road.

11. When you approach an octagonal sign, you must:

An octagonal (eight-sided) sign always means "Stop." Come to a complete stop, yield to traffic and pedestrians that have the right-of-way, and proceed when the way is clear.

12. This road sign means:
Increase your speed.
Railroad crossing ahead.
Intersection ahead.
Four-way stop ahead.

This sign means that you are approaching an upcoming intersection. Watch carefully for cross traffic.

13. When riding on a slippery surface, you should:
Increase your speed.
Use only your rear brake.
Avoid making sudden moves.

Avoid making sudden moves when riding on a slippery surface. Any sudden change in speed or direction can cause a skid. Operate as smoothly as possible when speeding up, shifting gears, turning, or braking.

14. From top to bottom, the following is the proper order for traffic lights:
Red, yellow, green.
Red, green, yellow.

This sign warns of a winding road ahead.

16. To help others see your motorcycle, you should:
Use your headlight.
Weave in your lane.
Maintain eye contact with other road users.

Riding with your headlight activated is the best way to help other road users see your motorcycle. Always be sure your headlight works before starting your trip.

17. Maximum straight-line braking is done by:
Using the front brake, then the rear brake.
Using the rear brake, then the front brake.
Using the front and rear brakes at the same time without locking either wheel.
Using the front and rear brakes at the same time while locking the rear wheel.

Maximum straight-line braking is accomplished by simultaneously applying both the front and rear brakes without locking either wheel.

18. When riding a motorcycle and trying to turn, you should:
Press the grip in the direction you want to turn.
Press the grip opposite of the direction you want to turn.
Not hold the grip because it can be dangerous.
Not lean the motorcycle as that can be unsafe.

When traveling faster than a walking pace, your motorcycle will need to lean to turn. Pressing the grip in the direction you want to turn will cause you to lean in the appropriate direction

19. Your lane position should:
Avoid other road users' blind spots.
Provide a good view of the shoulder.
Provide a poor view of road hazards.
Invite others to share your lane.

A properly chosen lane position should help you to see others and be seen by them. Avoid riding in another driver's blind spot for a long period of time.

20. When entering a turn, you should:
Slow down.
Speed up.
Come to a complete stop.

Reduce your speed before entering a turn. If you take a turn too fast, you may end up veering out of your lane or even off the road.

21. Your lane position should not:
Increase your ability to see.
Avoid placing you in other drivers' blind spots.
Encourage other drivers to share your lane.
Provide you with an escape route.

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 approaching an intersection, a motorcyclist should not:
Choose a lane position that increases their visibility.
Speed up to cross the intersection quickly.
Cover the clutch and brakes to reduce their reaction time.

As you approach an intersection, select a lane position that will make you the most visible to other drivers and cover the clutch and both brakes to reduce your reaction time. Reduce your speed when approaching an intersection. Avoid changing your speed or position radically as doing so may cause surrounding drivers to misinterpret your intentions.

23. 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 effectively as goggles.

A plastic, shatter-resistant face shield protects your entire face in a crash. Goggles protect your eyes, but not the rest of your face. A windshield is not an adequate substitute for a face shield or goggles.

24. When riding, your feet should be:
On the gas tank.
Hanging loosely.
On the footrests.

Your feet should remain on your footrests while riding to help you maintain proper balance.

25. Which portion of the lane should be avoided?
The left portion of the lane
The center portion of the lane
The right portion of the lane
No portion of the lane should always be avoided.

There is no lane position that is always best and no lane position that should always be avoided. Select a lane position that is appropriate for riding conditions.

26. As a rider, you can lessen your chances of being involved in an accident by:
Not looking ahead for hazards.
Refraining from using turn signals, as doing so could distract other drivers.
Being visible to other drivers.

To reduce the risk of a collision, be sure to make yourself visible, clearly communicate your intentions, maintain an adequate space cushion, search your path of travel, and identify and separate hazards. Always be prepared to react to any hazard that could arise.

27. When choosing a lane position, you should consider:
Whether or not other drivers will see you.
How many cars are on the road ahead.
Which portion of the lane will result in a shorter trip.
If you can pass more vehicles in a certain position than in another.

While a properly chosen lane position can offer several advantages, you should be certain that your lane position will allow you to be seen by others and have an adequate space cushion.

28. When being passed by another vehicle, you should travel in:
The left portion of the lane.
The center portion of the lane.
The right portion of the 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.

29. When making a non-emergency stop on a motorcycle:
Only the front brake should be used.
The front and rear brakes should be applied at the same time.
Only the rear brake should be used.

When making a normal, non-emergency stop, use the front and rear brakes simultaneously and downshift.

30. A pre-ride inspection should be done:
Before every ride.
Once a week.
Once a month.
Once a season.

To prevent any dangerous situations caused by technical issues, you should perform a thorough inspection of your motorcycle before every ride. Compared to a car, small technical problems can have more serious consequences on a motorcycle.

31. If the front wheel locks, you should:
Release the front brake immediately, then re-apply the brake.
Release the front brake immediately and only use the rear brake.
Keep the front wheel locked until you come to a stop.

If you lock the front wheel while braking, release the brake and immediately re-apply it.

32. Your lane position should:
Keep your intentions hidden from other drivers.
Encourage other drivers to share your lane.
Increase your ability to see and be seen.
Be close to the road signs.

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.

33. When riding in the rain, you should:
Ride down the center of your lane.
Ride on the right side of your lane.
Ride in tire tracks left by other cars.

A road is often very slippery when rain first begins to fall. When it starts to rain, ride in the tire tracks left by cars to get the best traction.

34. When riding a motorcycle, clothing:
Should be loose enough to flap in the wind.
Should not cover your arms or legs completely.
Should not include a jacket if the weather is warm.
Can provide protection in the event of a crash.

The right clothing can provide vital protection if you are involved in a collision. Always wear a jacket and pants that fully cover your arms and legs, even in warm weather. Clothing should fit snugly enough that it does not flap in the wind but should also be loose enough that your movement is not restricted.

35. When checking tire pressure:
Eyeballing the tire is a good method.
Use a tire gauge.
It is best to squeeze the tire.
Compare the height of the tire to another tire.

You should use a tire gauge to check the tire pressure before every ride. An under-inflated tire may still look okay, so a visual check is not enough.

36. When riding with a passenger, you should:
Maintain your usual space cushion.
Brake later than usual.
Ride a little more slowly than usual.
Ride a little faster than usual.

Your motorcycle will sit lower than normal under the additional weight of a passenger. To accommodate, you should ride a bit more slowly than usual, particularly when riding through curves, through corners, or over bumps. The extra weight also means that your motorcycle will take longer than usual to speed up, slow down, or stop, so you should maintain a larger space cushion when carrying a passenger.

37. If you are being chased by a dog, you should:
Kick it away.
Stop until the animal loses interest.
Swerve around the animal.
Approach the animal slowly, then speed up.

If a dog is chasing your motorcycle, downshift and slowly approach the dog. Once you have gotten close to the animal, accelerate and leave it behind. Do not attempt to kick it.

38. Where is the front brake lever usually located?
On the left handgrip
On the right handgrip
By the left foot peg
By the right foot peg

The front brake lever is generally located on the right handgrip. Make sure that you are aware of the locations of all your motorcycle's controls before beginning to ride.

39. On a slippery surface, you should not:
Reduce your speed.
Avoid making sudden moves.
Use only the front brake when slowing or stopping.
Use both brakes when slowing or stopping.

To ride safely on a slippery surface, you should use both brakes when slowing or stopping, reduce your speed, and avoid making sudden moves. Be alert to oily areas, dirt, gravel, shaded areas, and bridges, as these surfaces are more likely to be slippery than others.

40. If your friend has been drinking alcohol, it is a good idea to do any of the following, except:
Arrange for a safe ride home for your friend.
Occupy your friend with activities to distract them from drinking.
Keep your friend from leaving until they are sober.
Allow your friend to ride their motorcycle.

There are several strategies you can use to prevent someone from riding their motorcycle while impaired. You can arrange another way for them to get home, involve them in other activities to slow the pace of their drinking, use any available excuse to stop them from leaving before they are sober, and get other friends involved to intervene as a group.
