Passing is ____ across a broken yellow center line.

Yellow center lines separate traffic traveling in opposite directions. You’re permitted to pass across broken yellow lines if you can safely do so.

You’re driving in wet conditions. What should you do?

Driving in wet conditions is challenging. You will see less, have increased stopping distances, and have a harder time controlling your motorcycle. Driving at high speeds on wet roads, especially in combination with under-inflated tires or tires with poor tread depth, also increases the chance of hydroplaning - so slow down when there is water on the road.

You have recently changed your motorcycle battery. How should you get rid of the battery?

Batteries must be disposed of safely as they contain acid that can be harmful to the environment. Take your used battery to an appropriate disposal site.

For you to be a safe rider, you need a motorcycle that fits you. In terms of the height of the motorcycle, make sure your feet can comfortably reach the ground while you are seated.

Blind spots are especially dangerous for motorcycles due to their smaller form factor. If you are in another drivers blind spot, they may not spot you as they do their shoulder check and may change lanes without warning. Never drive in the blind spot of others if you can avoid it - speed up or drop back.

Which brake provides the most stopping power?

The front brake provides more stopping power than the rear brake. It stands for about 75% of your total stopping power. Be careful so you don't grab at the front brake and cause your brakes to lock.

What should you do if you are braking and the front wheel locks up?

If you front wheel locks while braking, you should immediately release the front brake and re-apply the brake when the lock is removed. Don't let go of the rear brake.

What does it mean to ‘over drive’ your headlights?

To ‘over drive’ your headlights means that you won’t be able to stop within the area lighted up by your headlights. This is a problem for all drivers, but motorcyclists may be more susceptible to objects on the road etc.

For example, if you’re driving faster than 25 mph with low-beam headlights at night, it may be too late to stop without hitting an object by the time you see it.

You should get into the habit of handling each curve:

All curves are different - some curves may remain constant, some may gradually widen or get tighter, and others may combine multiple curves. Do not treat each curve the same. Instead, ride within your skill leven and change your lane position based on the shape of the curve in combination with the road and traffic conditions.
