Questions

What should you do when driving downhill?

AUse your brakes frequently and avoid engine braking
BUse a higher gear
Keep an eye on your speed and know what’s behind you

If you brake too much using your brake pedal, your brakes may overheat and stop functioning. A low gear will allow for your vehicle to engine brake, and thus avoid overheating.

Keep an eye on your surroundings (e.g. if you have a large vehicle behind you). Your vehicle will pick up speed on its own when driving downhill (due to gravity), so also check your speed every now and then to see if you’re riding faster than is safe.

You are wearing on a very hot summer's day. Which part of your clothing should you exchange for summer clothes?

AAll of it
None of it

Motorcycle clothes are there to protect the rider in case of an accident, regardless of the weather conditions. Do not exchange your clothes for summer clothes as you'll lose all protection - it simpy isn't worth the risk.

You’re riding in the mountains. Which statement is true?

There are usually many sharp curves and the roads may be icy
BRiding in the mountains is no more difficult than riding on a freeway
CMost mountain roads have a speed limit of 50 mph
DMountain roads are almost never icy

The climate is likely to be much colder in the mountains due to the higher altitude. Warning signs are placed on many roads that tend to freeze a lot, but not on all of them. Remember that the roads may be icy even during summer... so make sure to look for spots of ice on the road ahead!

The probability of a serious accident ____ if you drink and drive.

Increases
BIsn’t affected
CDecreases

Drunk driving is one of the main causes of road fatalities. Alcohol affects your riding and driving abilities (such as your reaction time and judgment) and will make you overconfident. Intoxicated drivers will almost certainly collide at a higher speed than sober drivers.

Which statement is true regarding signaling?

ASignaling is unnecessary unless driving in heavy traffic
BYou don’t have to signal when turning

Watch out for how other vehicles are acting (e.g. slowing down or turning), and don’t believe blindly in turn signals. Other drivers may signal too early or forget to turn off their turn signal after turning.

Which of the following is true in regards to the lane position in curves?

AMotorcyclists should remain in the same lane position thoughout each curve

For example; you may want to move to the inside of the curve as you enter the curve, and then to the outside as you exit the curve. It all depends on the conditions of the curve.

What should you do in case of heavy bleeding?

No

If you are group riding in a staggered formation, pass one at a time. Each rider has to decide when it is safe to pass and when the space cushion in front of the passed vehicle is large enough. Do not pass many at a time as it will greatly increase the risk of an accident when passing, and will require far more time to make a complete pass.

AYes
No

Always use both brakes at the same time to come to a stop, especially if you have to stop quickly.

ASignal right and check the blind spot before pulling out
Signal left and check the blind spot before pulling out
CSignal left and drive at any time, as parked vehicles have the right-of-way

Before pulling out into traffic, you must check that the road is clear. Do this by checking your mirrors, and then giving a left signal to warn other road users of your intention to pull out.

In this case, signal left and then check the blind spot by looking over your left shoulder.
