About half of all motorcycle-car collisions are caused by?

AThe motorcycle rider incorrectly assuming he/she has right-of-way
Vehicles entering a rider's right-of-way
CNone of the above

Vehicles entering a rider's right-of-way stand for just over half of all motorcycle-car accidents. The simple truth is that many drivers just don't spot the motorcycle at all before the accident takes place. Do not count on other drivers seeing you - look for potential hazards using the Search, Evaluate, Execute (SEE) technique.

How many seconds up your intended path of travel should you look?

A3-5 seconds
B5-10 seconds
10-15 seconds
D20-30 seconds

Scan your path of travel to identify potentially hazardous situations. Look about 10 to 15 seconds ahead.

How often should you check the following items; cables, fasteners, fluid levels, wheels.

AOnce a day
Once a week
COnce a month
DOnce a year

Riders have to do certain checks before every drip and other checks once a week. The items mentioned can be checked once a week or as often as recommended by the manufacturer.

Last minute moves can be avoided by:

ALooking 3-10 seconds ahead of your vehicle
Looking 10-15 seconds ahead of your vehicle
CLooking 25-30 seconds ahead of your vehicle

Scan the road about 10-15 seconds ahead of your motorcycle so you will have enough time to spot, react to, and avoid most potential hazards.

You’re riding relatively slowly in the left-most lane on the expressway with vehicles approaching from behind at a higher speed. What should you do?

Change lanes to the right as soon as safe
BStay in the left-most lane and let the faster vehicles pass on your right
CSlow down to indicate you can drive at any speed you want

The left-most lane is the ‘passing’ lane that should only be used briefly to pass slower-moving vehicles in the other lanes. If vehicles are approaching from behind at a higher speed, change lanes as soon as safe.

A car has just passed you and cut in sharply in front of you. What should you do?

ASound your horn and flash your headlights
BBrake hard
Ease off the accelerator

If another vehicle cuts in sharply, ease off the accelerator and drop back to allow a safe following distance. Avoid overreacting by swerving or braking hard as you can lose control of your motorcycle or cause a crash.

Belt or chain slippage or breakage can be avoided by:

ALess aggressive acceleration
BLess aggressive braking
Proper maintenance

Belt or chain slippage or breakage can lock your rear wheel and cause your motorcycle to skid. If your belt breaks, you will notice an instant loss of power to the rear wheel. If your belt or chain slips, you should tighten the belt/chain or replace it before riding again.

What can you do in high-risk areas to reduce your reaction time?

ASlow down to a crawl
BIncrease the following distance
Cover the clutch and both brake levers

To reduce your reaction time, you can cover the clutch and both brake levers in high-risk areas where you may have to act quickly. These areas includes chools, construction zones, parking lots, and intersections. Increasing the following distance and slowing down is also a good idea, but they will only give you more time to react, not reduce your reaction time.

You are riding with a group of motorcyclists. When should you ride in a staggered formation?

AAt all times
BOn all roads with a speed limit over 25 mph
On a straight roadway

A staggered formation is not suitable at all times. It should not, for example, be used when riding in curves or when entering or exiting a highway. In those situations, move into a single line instead.

From the perspective of a car driver, why should you look carefully for motorcyclists when waiting to turn at an intersection?

AThey usually travel faster than cars
Motorcyclists may be hidden from view
CMotorcyclists have right-of-way

Look carefully for motorcyclists at intersections or whenever entering a road, as they can be difficult to spot. Be extra careful if there are parked vehicles or other obstructions restricting your view.

How often should you check the motorcycle's lights, chain/belt, fluids, and tires?

AOnce a day
BOnce a week
Before every ride
DAfter every ride

To make sure your motorcycle is safe to use, check your lights, foil and fluid levels, tires, belt/chain, and the kick stand before every ride.

Why should you make sure that your turn signals are canceled after turning?

To avoid misleading other drivers
BTo avoid blinding other drivers

You can mislead other road users if you don’t cancel your signals. If they are still activated, other drivers may drive directly across your path expecting you to turn again in the direction your signals are indicating. For example; if you are signaling left but riding straight ahead, another vehicle may turn in front of you.

Who has to wear a helmet on a motorcycle?

AThe rider(s)
BThe passenger(s)
All riders and passengers

All riders and passengers must use a U.S. DOT compliant motorcycle safety helmen when riding a motorcycle. A majority of all serious and fatal motorcyclist injuries are head injuries - and a helmet will greatly reduce head injuries.

Do motorcycle riders need insurance?


Just like when driving other vehicles, you need insurance to drive a motorcycle. The financial responsibility that applies to other vehicles will also apply to motorcycle owners and operators.

Which statement is true regarding fatigue?

Fatigue slows your reflexes and affects your judgment
BFatigue isn’t affected by sleep
CFatigue won't affect your reflexes

It’s very dangerous to ride while fatigued. Pull off the road and take a nap if you suddenly feel very tired while riding.

You are riding at night. How should you approach the following distance?

ALower your following distance to the vehicle in front so you can use its lights to see farther up the road
BKeep the same following distance as during the day
Increase your following distance to the vehicle in front

You should increase the following distance at night - allow for a three or four-second following distance at a minimum. Distances will be much harder to judge when it is dark outside, and your eyes will have a harder time determining speed and distance.

Which of the following increases the risk of hydroplaning?

ADriving slowly
Driving with worn tires
CDriving on newly laid asphalt
DCarrying many passengers

The tread depth is worn along with the tire, and less tread depth increases the risk of hydroplaning.

What is hydroplaning?

AWhen you don’t have time to respond to a hazard because you’re distracted
BWhen all electronic devices in the vehicle stop working
When a layer of water builds between your tires and the road surface

When you’re hydroplaning, you will often skid uncontrollably due to your tires ‘surfing’ on top of the water.

High speeds, low tread depth, and low air pressure increases the risk of hydroplaning.

Motorcycle riders should:

AExpect that other drivers will see you and yield the right--of-way when they should
Expect that other drivers will NOT see you and fail to yield the right--of-way when they should

You cannot be certain that others will see you or yield the right-of-way. Adapt your riding so you won't crash as a result of someone else's negligence.
