1. When carrying a passenger, a motorcyclist should tell the passenger to:

Explanation
Even if your passenger is also a motorcyclist, you should give them complete safety instructions before leaving on a trip. Ask them to get on the motorcycle only after you have started the engine. They should sit as far forward as possible without crowding you and firmly hold onto your waist, hips, or belt. They should keep both feet on the footrests at all times, even when the bike is stopped.

2. When riding in a group, inexperienced riders should be placed:

Explanation
Inexperienced riders should ride near the front of a group, just behind the leader, so more experienced riders can keep an eye on them from behind.

3. When passing parked cars, which part of the lane should you usually use?

Explanation
When passing a row of parked cars, it is often safest to ride in the left portion of your lane. Riding in the left portion will keep you farthest from any opening car doors, people stepping out from between cars, and cars pulling out of parking spaces.

4. If operating a three-wheeled motorcycle or riding with a sidecar, do not ride too far to the right of your lane because:

5. A helmeted rider is _______ more likely to survive a crash than a rider not wearing a helmet.

6. The effects of marijuana consumption can last for:

Explanation
When marijuana is smoked, it can begin to affect the smoker within minutes and effects can last for between two and four hours. When marijuana is eaten, it may take over an hour to begin to affect the consumer, but the effects of the marijuana may last for more than six hours.
