Two Wheel Motorcycle Examination CA 2011 N�1 - Quiz

Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

     Before changing lanes to the left, as pictured below, you should :

    • A.

      Check your left mirror and turn your head to the left

    • B.

      Check the right mirror and turn your head to the left

    • C.

      Use your horn and speed up

    Correct Answer
    A. Check your left mirror and turn your head to the left
    Explanation
    When changing lanes to the left, it is important to check your left mirror to ensure there are no vehicles in your blind spot on the left side. Turning your head to the left also allows you to have a better view of any vehicles approaching from the left side. Checking the right mirror and turning your head to the left does not provide a clear view of the left side, which is the direction you are intending to move towards. Using your horn and speeding up are not appropriate actions when changing lanes.

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

    • A.

      Move closer to the vehicle ahead

    • B.

      Drop back farther from the vehicle ahead

    • C.

      Pass the vehicle ahead

    Correct Answer
    B. 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 important for your own safety and the safety of others on the road. By creating more space between your vehicle and the vehicle ahead, you allow yourself more time to react to any sudden changes in traffic or road conditions. It also reduces the risk of a rear-end collision if the vehicle behind you fails to stop in time.

    To make a normal stop, use :

    • A.

      The rear brake only

    • B.

      The rear brake first

    • C.

      Both brakes and downshift

    Correct Answer
    C. Both brakes and downshift
    Explanation
    To make a normal stop, it is recommended to use both brakes and downshift. Using both brakes allows for better control and evenly distributes the braking force between the front and rear wheels. Downshifting helps to slow down the vehicle gradually and can prevent sudden jerks or skidding. By combining both techniques, the rider can achieve a smoother and more controlled stop.

    When adjusting your mirrors to carry a passenger, the passenger should :

    • A.

      Sit on the seat with you

    • B.

      Stand behind the motorcycle

    • C.

      Adjust the mirror while you sit on the motorcycle

    Correct Answer
    A. Sit on the seat with you
    Explanation
    When adjusting your mirrors to carry a passenger, it is recommended that the passenger sits on the seat with you. This is because the passenger's position on the motorcycle can affect the balance and stability of the bike. Having the passenger sit on the seat with you ensures that the weight is evenly distributed and helps maintain control of the motorcycle. Additionally, having the passenger on the seat allows them to adjust the mirrors while you sit on the motorcycle, making it easier to find the correct position for optimal visibility.

      Allow extra room for stopping

    • C.

      Do not shift above the third gear

    Correct Answer
    B. Allow extra room for stopping
    Explanation
    When riding an unfamiliar motorcycle, it is important to allow extra room for stopping. This is because you may not be familiar with the braking system and how quickly the motorcycle can come to a stop. Allowing extra room gives you more time to react and stop safely, reducing the risk of accidents or collisions.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    For higher speed turns, you should :

    • A.

      Lean more than you would at low speed

    • B.

      Lean less than you would at low speed

    • C.

      Lean the same amount you would at low speed

    Correct Answer
    A. Lean more than you would at low speed
    Explanation
    When taking higher speed turns, it is important to lean more than you would at low speed. This is because the centrifugal force acting on the vehicle increases with higher speeds, making it necessary to counterbalance the force by leaning more. By leaning more, the center of gravity of the vehicle is shifted towards the inside of the turn, providing better stability and reducing the risk of skidding or losing control. Therefore, leaning more is crucial for maintaining control and safety during higher speed turns.

    When riding where sand and gravel have collected on paved roads, you should :

    • A.

      Avoid sudden changes in speed or direction

    • B.

      Only use the rear brake to slow down

    • C.

      Pull in the clutch

    Correct Answer
    A. Avoid sudden changes in speed or direction
    Explanation
    When riding on paved roads with sand and gravel, it is important to avoid sudden changes in speed or direction. This is because the loose surface of sand and gravel can cause the tires to lose traction, making it difficult to control the bike. By avoiding sudden changes, you can maintain better stability and reduce the risk of skidding or sliding. Using only the rear brake to slow down may not be sufficient in such conditions, as the front brake is also necessary for effective braking. Pulling in the clutch may help to disengage the engine power and prevent the bike from stalling, but it is not the primary action to take in this situation.

    When you ride over a pothole, it is usually best to :

    • A.

      Keep a normal seat position

    • B.

      Lean forward as much as possible

    • C.

      Look straight ahead and rise slightly off the seat

    Correct Answer
    C. Look straight ahead and rise slightly off the seat
    Explanation
    When riding over a pothole, it is best to look straight ahead and rise slightly off the seat. By looking straight ahead, you can maintain your balance and anticipate any further obstacles on the road. Rising slightly off the seat helps to absorb the impact of the pothole, reducing the jolt and potential damage to the bike. This position also allows you to have better control over the bike and react quickly if needed. Keeping a normal seat position or leaning forward as much as possible can increase the risk of losing balance and control over the bike.
