Motorcycle safety courses - When you take a motorcycle safety course, you will get a course certificate. If you bring this certificate to a DriveTest centre, within six months, you do not need to take the M1 road test – you move directly to the next level (M2). You also will be able to take the second road test sooner, after 18 months instead of the standard 22.

In case the wheels get locked, what should a motorcyclist do?
A
Employ the rear wheel brakes.
B
Employ the front brakes.
C
Apply threshold braking.
D
Increase the speed by applying the throttle.
Question 1 Explanation:

Reduce throttle pressure and pull the clutch in.
D
None of the above steps should be applied.
Question 2 Explanation: 
In case of no kill switch, you should pull in the clutch and ride till the motorcycle stops and then switch off the ignition. One can also stop faster by braking, especially hard braking.
Question 3
Unless otherwise posted, the maximum speed limit on the highway outside of a city, town, village, or built-up area is:
A
80 km/h
B
100 km/h

One should do so every 2-4 seconds.
C
One should do so every 5-10 seconds.

B
It refers to the situation when a thin layer of ice covers the asphalt.
C
It refers to a frozen mixture of mud and snow.
D
It refers to recently-paved roads that are still wet.
Question 5 Explanation: 
Black ice builds everywhere, but especially so on bridges. This happens because bridges are prone to severely cold air from below and the drastic drop in temperature causes a sheer layer of ice to form on the asphalt.
Question 6
If the engine locks or freezes, what should a motorcyclist do?
A
Pull over and then wait until the engine cools down before adding oil to it.
B
Get the gas tank replenished.

Question 7
When a motorcyclist carries a passenger, the extra rider’s weight affects the motorcycle and…
A
Will not have any effect at all the motorcycle.
B
Results in the motorcycle responding faster than before.
C
Will help the motorcyclist to maintain batter control over the motorcycle’s balance.
D
Will result in the motorcycle reacting slower than usual.
Question 7 Explanation: 
The responsiveness of the vehicle is directly related to the weight of the pillion rider. The heavier your passenger is, the slower the vehicle will respond. Responsiveness in terms of accelerating, slowing down, and turning is decreased.
Question 8
Why should you not share lanes with other vehicles?
A
Lane sharing is useful because 2 vehicles will receive more notice than 1 and hence it is safer.
B
By driving too close to other vehicles, motorcyclists are at a risk of collisions and accidents and hence sharing lanes should be avoided.
C
By driving close to other vehicles, one can remain safe in the company of the rest of the traffic and hence lane sharing is good.
D
Both the second and the third statement are correct.
Question 8 Explanation: 
Lane sharing creates a risk of crashes and collisions and hence must be avoided at all costs. To do so motorcyclists are advised to maintain a blocking position.
Question 9
Why are motorcyclists advised against shifting gears while turning? (Choose 2)
A
Shifting gears may increase the speed, causing a loss of traction in the rear wheel and this can result in a skid.
B
Shifting gears during a turn is alright as long as one is moving slowly.
C
Shifting gears during a turn is alright as long as one is moving quickly.
D
The rear wheel can lock if there is jerky downshift, which may result in a skid.
Question 9 Explanation: 
To avoid skidding, motorcyclists are advised to shift gears after the turn has been completed and not during it.
Question 10
How does driving over metal gratings, worn out road facades, and grooves make a difference?
A
It results in a balanced and even driving experience.
B
It results in an airlifting experience.
C
It creates a sense of loss of control over the motorcycle.
D
All of the above
Question 10 Explanation: 
Anytime an uneven road surface gives a feeling of loss of control or shakiness, it is important to maintain a strong grip on the handlebars and steer clear of sudden movements or rash reactions.

Use the brakes hard as quickly as possible and then stop and pull over.
B
Switch the four-way flasher on.
C
Apply the clutch in order to disengage the engine from the rear wheel.
D
Begin downshifting and start decreasing the speed of the motorcycle.
Question 11 Explanation: 
A seized engine means the engine has frozen or gotten locked. This usually happens with some warning signs and you will have some time to react before the wheel becomes locked. It is important to stop and pull over before that happens.
Question 12

Question 13 Explanation:

The ability to keep an eye out for all sorts of possible situations is what separates the good drivers from the average and not-so-good ones. It is important to be able to predict and be ready for all sorts of situations so that one can respond properly, and one can also avoid panicking and getting nervous, both of which can complicate tough situations further.

Question 16 Explanation: 
For a staggered formation, the first driver should be in the left tire track and followed by the second driver at a distance of 1 second in the right tire track. The third driver should be in the left tire track and at a distance of 2 seconds from the second driver and so on.

Question 20
What are some of the reasons for wobbling?
A
Wobbling can be caused by loose wheel bearings.
B
All answers are correct.
C
Wobbling can be caused by worn out steering parts.

D
None of these statements are applicable.
Question 22 Explanation: 
It is best to keep the cargo secured in a low position and to maintain the balance of the motorcycle, one should even out the weight of the cargo on both sides. This way the gravity will not be affected.
