All Questions from the Section 2 - Motorcycle License Test
1 / 26
A broken center line on a roadway indicates that drivers may:
Knowing that other drivers may legally pass you, take extra care watching your rear to ensure you are in proper lane position if a driver does pass.
2 / 26
When a motorcyclist raises his left arm with the arm bent upward at the elbow, what does it signify?
If a motorcycle does not have indicator signals, or if they fail to work, motorcyclists must use proper hand signals to communicate with other drivers on the road.
3 / 26
How can motorcyclists enhance visibility when approaching an intersection?
Reducing speed as the motorcycle approaches the intersection gives the motorcyclist time to assess the intersection and react in case of other drivers' errors.
4 / 26
What should motorcyclists do if they need to make a sudden stop on a wet/slippery surface?
Motorcyclists should always apply both brakes smoothly at the same time. This ensures safer, more efficient stopping. Do not apply the brakes in a sudden, jerky manner.
5 / 26
What is the best way of obtaining a clear view of everything on the road?
Pay attention to surroundings and keep a track of them to reduce any chance of surprises.
6 / 26
How often should a motorcyclist check the mirrors while driving?
Checking mirrors frequently helps motorcyclists keep track of what is going on around them so they avoid surprises. It is essential to check the mirrors regularly during poor weather, when visibility is poor, on highways and while slowing down or turning.
7 / 26
How much following distance should a motorcyclist maintain from other vehicles on the road?
By maintaining a following distance of 2 seconds, motorcyclists have enough time to react and change course if necessary should a problem arise
8 / 26
When driving on a wet road, an abrupt change in direction or speed can result in skidding. Hence motorcyclists should always:
Driving in rainy conditions is dangerous. There is less traction on slippery roads, and rain hampers visibility; these facts result in motorcyclists having less control, which increases the risk of accidents. Always drive safely, using smooth, careful movements
9 / 26
What is the purpose served by the throttle?
The throttle is located on the right handgrip and helps control the speed of the motorcycle. When twisted inward towards the rider the throttle releases fuel which flows to the engine.
10 / 26
What is the minimum time it takes to obtain a full M license?
The M licensing process is graduated, much like the G licence. It begins with a written test for the M1. The M1 exit test to get an M2 may be attempted after 60 days, and must be successfully completed before the 90-day expiration date or a new M1 licence must be obtained (M1 tests may be attempted before 60 days when they are offered as part of a Ministry-approved safety course). Application for the M licence is not permitted earlier than 20 months after obtaining an M2 licence provided a safety course is taken, hence a total of 22 months. If a safety course is not taken, a waiting period of 24 months is required.
11 / 26
What must be done when changing gears on a motorcycle?
The clutch is the lever on the left handlebar of the motorcycle. You must disengage the clutch when changing gears.
12 / 26
Why should lane splitting be avoided?
Lane splitting refers to driving between vehicles in adjacent lanes (ie. along the white line between lanes). It is very dangerous because the slightest shift in position from any of the other vehicles can result in an accident since there is very little room for the motorcyclist to maneuver.
13 / 26
Before driving a motorcycle, responsible motorcyclists begin by:
Since the degree of damage experienced in motorcycle accidents is greater than with other motor vehicles, it is essential to perform a thorough inspection of the motorcycle to ensure that it is safe to drive.
14 / 26
How can motorcyclists communicate with other drivers?
Communicating well with other drivers is essential for safe driving. In any given situation, motorcyclists must use appropriate methods to communicate with other drivers; in most cases, more than one method must be used to communicate well.
15 / 26
What are the risks posed to motorcyclists by large vehicles?
Remain a good distance from large vehicles, especially when they are about to turn. Large vehicles make wide turns, and have large blind spots. Moving into the space that opens up as a large vehicle swings out to make its turn could result in the motorcyclist being hit, since the driver of the large vehicle will most likely not be able to see the motorcycle.
16 / 26
When a vehicle ahead signals to turn left as a motorcyclist nears an intersection, the motorcyclist should:
Be careful. Drive slowly, adjusting your speed for the situation. Maintain maximum distance between your motorcycle and the other vehicle by moving to the right lane if possible, or by stopping if necessary.
17 / 26
Why are motorcyclists advised not to drive in the center lane(s) of roads that have 3 or more lanes?
Motorcyclists should only drive in a right or left lane in order to have a blocking position. Blocking positions are important because they prevent other drivers from driving too close to the motorcycle.
18 / 26
What is the importance of keeping both feet on the footrests while driving?
Always keep both feet on the footrests for better control. Motorcyclists must not drag their feet on the ground at any time while driving.
19 / 26
What is meant by the term "push-steering", also known as"counter-steering"?
Applying forward pressure on the handlebar of the turning side causes the motorcycle to lean while pushing on the other handlebar and applying the throttle causes the motorcycle to straighten and finish the turn.
20 / 26
What should motorcyclists do when a signal light changes from green to amber as they approach an intersection?
Make sure you can stop safely, if not clear the intersection if you can do so safely.
21 / 26
What is the best way to learn to ride a motorcycle?
A motorcycle training course designed and/or authorized by the Ministry will ensure new drivers learn the necessary skills and develop the know-how to drive safely. Most courses provide the Level 1 exit test as part of the course and reduce the length of time needed at the M2 level.
22 / 26
If the headlights of the motorcycle do not switch on automatically with the engine, when is it mandatory to switch them on?
Lights come on automatically with newer models, but the lights must be switched on manually for older motorcycles. Keep headlights and taillights switched on at all times for greater visibility, and so that you do not need to switch them on while driving.
23 / 26
When a motorcyclist raises his left arm and points towards the left, with the arm parallel to the ground, what does it signify?
24 / 26
Never change lanes without:
It is important to signal your lane change, to communicate with traffic, the change in direction you are planning on taking.
25 / 26
A high-speed wobble can be effectively managed by:
Maintain a firm grip on the handlebars. Reduce speed by closing the throttle. Do not apply the brakes, since that only makes the motorcycle more difficult to control. Never increase speed when the motorcycle is wobbling.
26 / 26
Which way should a motorcyclist position the motorcycle when attempting to move out of a parking spot that is parallel to the side of the road?
Positioning the motorcycle across the parking spot helps ensure that the motorcyclist has a good view of the road and that the motorcycle is visible to other vehicles on the road, especially if the road has numerous cars parked on both sides.
