CA M1 Motorcycle Test 2 CA 2011 - Quiz

Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    On a wet road it will usually be most slippery :

    • A.

      In the left wheel track

    • B.

      On loose gravel

    • C.

      In the center portion of the lane

    Correct Answer
    C. In the center portion of the lane
    Explanation
    The center portion of the lane is usually the most slippery on a wet road because it is where most vehicles drive, causing the oils and fluids from their tires to accumulate. This accumulation of oils and fluids creates a slick surface, making it more slippery compared to the left wheel track or loose gravel.

  • 2. 

    If you must stop quickly while turning and you are unable to straighten the motorcycle first, apply the :

    • A.

      Front brake and increase your lean angle

    • B.

      Brakes harder as the lean is reduced

    • C.

      Brakes first and then lean away from the turn

    Correct Answer
    B. Brakes harder as the lean is reduced
    Explanation
    When you need to stop quickly while turning and cannot straighten the motorcycle first, the correct approach is to gradually reduce the lean angle by braking harder. By applying more pressure on the brakes, the bike's speed will decrease, allowing you to safely navigate the turn. This technique helps maintain stability and control while ensuring a shorter stopping distance.

  • 3. 

    To ride over an object on the road :

    • A.

      Stay seated until you have crossed the object

    • B.

      Rise slightly off the seat

    • C.

      Edge across the object

    Correct Answer
    B. Rise slightly off the seat
    Explanation
    Rising slightly off the seat while riding over an object on the road allows the rider to absorb the impact and reduce the chance of getting thrown off balance. By lifting their body weight, the rider can navigate the obstacle more smoothly and avoid any potential damage to the bike or themselves. This technique helps maintain control and stability while crossing the object.

  • 5. 

    When you are being followed too closely, it is usually best to :

    • A.

      Move closer to the vehicle ahead

    • B.

      Move to the right portion of the lane

    • C.

      Drop back farther from the vehicle ahead

    Correct Answer
    C. Drop back farther from the vehicle ahead
    Explanation
    When you are being followed too closely, it is usually best to drop back farther from the vehicle ahead. This is because maintaining a safe following distance is crucial for road safety. By increasing the distance between your vehicle and the one ahead, you create a buffer zone that allows you more time to react to any sudden changes or emergencies. It also reduces the chances of a rear-end collision if the vehicle behind you fails to stop in time. Moving closer to the vehicle ahead or moving to the right portion of the lane may not address the issue of being followed too closely and could potentially increase the risk of an accident.

    To see better when following a vehicle at night :

    • A.

      Increase your following distance and use your low beam

    • B.

      Drop far back and use your high beam

    • C.

      Use the headlights of the vehicle ahead

    Correct Answer
    C. Use the headlights of the vehicle ahead
    Explanation
    Using the headlights of the vehicle ahead can help improve visibility when following a vehicle at night. By relying on the headlights of the vehicle in front, you can benefit from the additional light they provide, making it easier to see the road ahead. This can be especially helpful in situations where your own headlights may not be sufficient, such as when driving on dark or poorly lit roads. Additionally, increasing your following distance and using your low beam can also contribute to better visibility and reduce the risk of a collision.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    When carrying loads :

    • A.

      Fasten the load against the frame on the back of the seat

    • B.

      Keep the load low and as far forward as possible

    • C.

      Keep the load behind the rear axle

    Correct Answer
    B. Keep the load low and as far forward as possible
    Explanation
    To ensure stability and balance while carrying loads, it is important to keep the load low and as far forward as possible. This helps to distribute the weight evenly and prevents the load from shifting or tipping over. Placing the load behind the rear axle can cause the front of the vehicle to become lighter, resulting in reduced steering control. Fastening the load against the frame on the back of the seat adds an extra layer of security, preventing the load from moving or falling off during transportation.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    When swerving, it is important to :

    • A.

      Always brake before swerving

    • B.

      Swerve in the direction the hazard is traveling

    • C.

      Separate braking from swerving

    Correct Answer
    C. Separate braking from swerving
    Explanation
    When swerving, it is important to separate braking from swerving because braking while swerving can cause the vehicle to lose control. By separating these actions, the driver can maintain better control over the vehicle and increase the chances of avoiding the hazard. Additionally, swerving in the direction the hazard is traveling allows the driver to create more distance between the vehicle and the hazard, reducing the risk of collision.

    You are preparing to move to the left lane, as pictured below. To spot vehicles passing beside you, it is best to :

    • A.

      Turn your head to the left

    • B.

      Look in the left mirror

    • C.

      Slow and look in the left mirror

    Correct Answer
    A. Turn your head to the left
    Explanation
    To spot vehicles passing beside you when preparing to move to the left lane, it is best to turn your head to the left. This allows you to have a direct line of sight and provides a wider field of view compared to just looking in the left mirror. By turning your head, you can effectively check for any vehicles in your blind spot and ensure a safe lane change. Additionally, relying solely on the left mirror may not provide an accurate representation of the surrounding traffic, as it has limited visibility. Slowing down while looking in the left mirror can be helpful, but turning your head is the most effective way to spot vehicles passing beside you.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    When carrying a passenger :

    • A.

      Your motorcycle will react the same

    • B.

      It takes longer to brake and accelerate

    • C.

      Let some air out of the tires to better action

    Correct Answer
    B. It takes longer to brake and accelerate
    Explanation
    When carrying a passenger on a motorcycle, it takes longer to brake and accelerate. This is because the additional weight of the passenger increases the overall mass of the motorcycle, making it harder to slow down or speed up quickly. The increased weight affects the motorcycle's handling and requires the rider to adjust their braking and acceleration accordingly to ensure safety.

    To predict how a hazard may affect you, it's important to :

    • A.

      Watch for brake lights or turn signals

    • B.

      Adjust speed to get around the hazard

    • C.

      Know the speed, distance and direction that the hazard is moving

    Correct Answer
    C. Know the speed, distance and direction that the hazard is moving
    Explanation
    To predict how a hazard may affect you, it's important to know the speed, distance, and direction that the hazard is moving. This information will help you assess the potential impact of the hazard on your own vehicle and make informed decisions on how to respond. By understanding the hazard's speed, you can estimate how quickly it may approach or intersect with your path. By knowing the distance, you can gauge how close you are to the hazard and whether you need to take immediate action. Finally, understanding the direction of the hazard's movement allows you to anticipate its trajectory and plan your own maneuvers accordingly.

    To cross tracks that run parallel to your cross :

    • A.

      Edge gradually across

    • B.

      Move away, then turn and cross at an angle of a least 45°

    • C.

      Move into the opposite lane to cross at a 90° angle

    Correct Answer
    B. Move away, then turn and cross at an angle of a least 45°
    Explanation
    When crossing tracks that run parallel to your direction of travel, it is important to move away from the tracks first and then turn to cross at an angle of at least 45 degrees. This is the safest option as it allows you to have a clear view of any oncoming trains from both directions. Crossing at a 90-degree angle or moving into the opposite lane can be dangerous as it increases the risk of a collision with a train that may be approaching from either side.
