1. When you are being passed by another vehicle, which part of the lane should you ride in?

Explanation
When being passed, it is generally safest to ride in the center portion of your lane. Riding on the side nearest the passing vehicle increases the risk of colliding with them. Riding on the side farthest from the passing vehicle is also dangerous, as it could tempt the driver to re-enter your lane before it is safe to do so.

2. An advantage to keeping a cushion of space between your motorcycle and other vehicles is that:

You should use a turn signal every time you plan to turn or change lanes, even if you think no one else is around to see it.

4. To lessen your chances of being involved in a crash, you should:

Explanation

Communicate your intentions through proper use of your signals, brake light, and lane position. Maintain a space cushion around your motorcycle and consistently scan the road ahead of, behind, and next to your vehicle.

5. When riding at night, how should your following distance compare to your following distance during the day?

Explanation
To reduce your risk of being involved in a crash, you should remain alert and ready to react to any hazard. Identify hazards and decide the order in which you need to address the hazards.
