Ontario M1 Test Rules3

Question 1

CORRECT

A

It is needed at the 5-year mark when all vehicles are required to undergo a safety test.

B

It is needed at the 2-year mark when all vehicles are required to undergo a safety test.

C

None of them.

It is legally needed to purchase plates for the motorcycle.

Question 1 Explanation: 

The Ministry of Transportation authorizes inspection stations to examine and verify motorcycles. The Safety Standards Certificate is documented proof that the vehicle has passed the inspection. The certificate is valid for 36 days.

Question 2

CORRECT

At what point can a motorcyclist take the Level 1 road test needed to acquire an M2 license?

A

The motorcyclist may apply after having the M1 license for 90 days.

The motorcyclist may apply after having the M1 license for 60 days.

C

The motorcyclist may apply after having the M1 license for 30 days.

D

The motorcyclist may apply after having the M1 license for 120 days.

Question 2 Explanation: 

The test must be taken while the M1 license is still valid, which is for 90 days from the date it was issued. People taking a Ministry-authorized training program can do the M1 exit test any time but may not acquire the M2 permit from the Ministry until a period of 60 days has passed.

Question 3

CORRECT

When you must drive over an object or pothole on the road, what is the best way to reduce the force of the impact?

A

Grip the handlebars tightly.

B

Sit firmly on the seat, with your back absolutely straight.

C

Apply the brakes forcefully as you drive over the object or pothole.

Rise up a little bit on the footrests in order to distribute the impact evenly and absorb the majority of it through the elbows and knees.

Question 3 Explanation: 

Reduce speed when approaching an object or pothole and maintain a firm grip on the handlebars to ensure that the motorcycle stays upright and does not turn. While raising yourself, it is essential to grip the handlebar firmly so that your hands do not slip.

Question 4

CORRECT

Apart from headlights and taillights, what else ensures visibility at night?

A

A brightly-coloured helmet.

B

A reflective vest or a jacket with reflective strips.

C

Clothing in bright colours such as yellow, red and orange.

All answers are correct.

Question 4 Explanation: 

A number of nighttime accidents occur because motorcyclists are not visible to other drivers on the road. Bright colours and reflective gear can help counter this problem.


 

Question 5

CORRECT

How often should motorcycle tires be inspected for pressure, proper tread, and damage?

A

Once every year.

B

Once every week.

C

Once every month.

Every single time the motorcycle is used.

Question 5 Explanation: 

Tires are just one of the controls that must be inspected regularly to ensure safety when driving a motorcycle. It is important to inspect these parts because motorcyclists are at greater risk if breakdown occurs.

Question 6

CORRECT

Carrying cargo on a motorcycle should be avoided, but in case you have to take something along how should you carry it?

A

The cargo should be secured only to the gas tank.

B

The cargo should be tied securely to the seat, then sat on by the motorcyclist.

C

The cargo should be secured to the motorcyclist’s legs and the gas tank.

The cargo should be placed in a secure carrier or saddlebag and should be distributed evenly so that the weight is spread out properly.

Question 6 Explanation: 

One should never secure the cargo to the back of the seat since this changes the weight and balance of the motorcycle by changing the centre of gravity.

Question 7

CORRECT

Motorcyclists should ensure that their passenger…

A

Talks to them when approaching a problem on the road, so the passenger knows which way to lean.

B

Is dressed in warm clothes.

C

Maintains one foot on the footrest at all times.

Always places both feet on the footrests, even when the motorcycle is stopped.

Question 7 Explanation: 

The passenger (pillion rider) should hold onto the motorcyclist securely and not move needlessly or do anything to distract the driver.

Question 8

CORRECT

When seated on a motorcycle at what distance from the ground should the rider’s feet be?

The rider's feet should be resting flat on the ground.

B

The rider's toes should just be able to touch the ground.

C

The rider's feet should be in a flat resting position at a distance of 2.54cm (1 inch) from the ground.

D

The rider's toes should be at a distance of 5-10cm (2-4 inches) from the ground.

Question 8 Explanation: 

The motorcycle rider must ensure that the motorcycle is secure, comfortable and the correct size in order to ensure a safe ride. Before driving, be sure to sit on the motorcycle seat and check to see if both feet can rest flat on the ground. If they cannot, the motorcycle is probably the wrong size.


 


Question 9

CORRECT

When slowing down or coming to a stop what should the motorcyclist do?

A

Apply only the front brakes.

B

Downshift after stopping.

Downshift.

D

Lean to the left.

Question 9 Explanation: 

Downshifting while reducing speed prevents sudden jerking of the motorcycle. In addition to downshifting, applying both sets of brakes to reduce speed or come to a stop is important because brake lights help motorists behind the motorcycle realize that a change in speed is occurring.

Question 10

CORRECT

What is the major difference between the front and rear brakes?

The front brakes account for three-quarters of the stopping force of the motorcycle.

B

The front brakes are easier to access than the rear brakes.

C

The front brakes account for one-quarter of the stopping force of the motorcycle.

D

The front brakes provide the entire stopping force of the motorcycle.

Question 10 Explanation: 

Although the front brakes account for three-quarters of the stopping force, it is important to apply both brakes together. Do not apply the brakes too forcefully (do not jam on the brakes): the tires can become locked and result in the motorcycle skidding.

Question 11

CORRECT

In order to discourage others on the road from attempting to share the right lane, in what part of the lane should the motorcyclist drive?

A

In the right part of the lane, also known as the right tire track.

In the left part of the lane, also known the left tire track.

C

In the middle of the lane.

D

It is unsafe to attempt to discourage others on the ride from attempting to share a lane; it is better to ignore other drivers who are attempting to share the lane.

Question 11 Explanation: 

It is dangerous to ignore other drivers or allow them to share a lane with the motorcycle. Maintaining proper blocking position is the most reliable method of discouraging other drivers from trying to share lanes. When driving in the right lane the blocking position is the left tire track under normal conditions; when driving in the left lane, the blocking position is normally the right tire track. It is unsafe to drive in the centre lane because there is no effective blocking position.

A

There is nothing important to do, because applying the brakes forcefully has little or no effect on the motorcycle.

Maintain an upright, vertical position and stay straight.

C

Angle the motorcycle to the left.

D

Angle the motorcycle towards the right.

Question 30 Explanation: 

It is important to remain straight and as vertical as possible while braking forcefully because this strengthens the traction of the motorcycle and traction is needed to maintain balance and control of the motorcycle.

Question 1

CORRECT

What causes wobbling in motorcycles?

All answers are correct.

B

Wobbling can be caused by worn out steering parts.

C

Wobbling can be caused by loose wheel bearings.

D

Wobbling can be caused by loose spokes.

Question 1 Explanation: 

If the motorcycle begins to wobble, do not accelerate. Maintain a firm grip on the handlebars and slow down steadily until it is safe to stop.

Question 2

CORRECT

In a situation where a number of motorcyclists are travelling with each other, in what way should they drive?

The motorcyclists should adopt a staggered formation.

B

The motorcyclists should drive one behind the other in a line.

C

The motorcyclists should drive next to each other, but in separate lanes.

D

The motorcyclists should drive next to each other.

Question 2 Explanation: 

A staggered formation allows motorcyclists to drive close to each other in a group but prevents them from driving too close or alongside one another. Using staggered formation, motorcyclists ensure they have enough room in which to safely manoeuvre.


 

Question 3

                                                      CORRECT            WRONG

If the engine locks or freezes, what should a motorcyclist do?

A

Pull over and fill the gas tank.

Pull over and wait till the engine cools down before adding oil to it.

C

Pull over and add windshield wiper fluid.

Pull over and wait till the engine cools down before adding gasline antifreeze to it.

Question 3 Explanation: 

Motorcycles should be inspected before each use. Regular maintenance helps ensure safe operation of a motorcycle. Keeping the correct amount of oil in the engine is essential.

Question 4

                                                      CORRECT           

Unless otherwise posted, the maximum speed limit on 2-lane highways outside of towns, cities, villages or built-up areas is:

A

50 km/h

80 km/h

40 km/h

D

100 km/h

Question 5

CORRECT

In case a need arises for a motorcyclist to stop the motorcycle while making a turn, the following process should be used:

A

The motorcyclist should only use the front brakes.

B

The motorcyclist should quickly speed up to avoid other vehicles on the road, then pull over to the side of the road before stopping.

The motorcyclist should use both the front brakes and the rear brakes simultaneously.

D

The motorcyclist should only use the rear brakes.

Question 5 Explanation: 

If a stop must be made during a turn, it is important to use both brakes. Remember to use all fingers to pull in the clutch and the front brakes so that there are no shudders and shakes. Downshifting can sometimes be used as an alternative as well.

Question 6

CORRECT

When a motorcyclist is in need of assistance, how should the motorcyclist alert other drivers on the road?

A

The motorcyclist should pull the bike off to the side of the road and stand beside it with the engine running.

B

The motorcyclist should pull the bike off to the side of the road and ensure that the tail light is on.

C

The motorcyclist should pull the bike off to the side of the road and switch on the high beam.

The motorcyclist should pull the bike off to the side of the road, and place his or her helmet on the ground, near the back of the parked motorcycle.

Question 6 Explanation: 

If it is necessary to pull off the road, be sure to park the motorcycle as far away from driving lanes as possible. The motorcyclist should move even further from the road if possible: standing right beside the motorcycle could be dangerous as sometimes vehicles parked alongside the roadway are sideswiped by passing traffic. Placing a helmet on the ground near the back of the parked motorcycle is a sign for assistance needed.


 

Question 7

CORRECT

What should a motorcyclist do if the motorcycle wheels begin to lock while braking?

A

Employ the rear brakes only.

B

Employ the front brakes only.

Apply threshold braking.

D

Speed up by applying the throttle.

Question 7 Explanation: 

Applying the brakes too hard and too fast can cause the wheels to lock. Threshold braking is a way to stop quickly without causing the wheels to lock. It involves applying both brakes at the same time, then quickly releasing before the point where the wheels lock up, then quickly repeating the process to enable the motorcycle to quickly and safely stop without locking the wheels.

Question 8

CORRECT

Why are motorcyclists advised against shifting gears while turning? (Choose 2)

Shifting gears while turning can cause the rear wheel to lock if the downshifting is jerky; this can result in a serious accident.

B

Shifting gears while turning is safe as long as the motorcycle is moving quickly.

C

Shifting gears while turning is safe as long as the motorcycle is moving slowly.

Shifting gears while turning may cause an increase in speed, which leads to loss of traction in the rear wheel, which can result in dangerous skidding.

Question 8 Explanation: 

To avoid skidding, motorcyclists are advised to shift gears after completing a turn, not during it.

Question 9

CORRECT

If a motorcyclist decides to change to the left lane while driving, what should the motorcyclist do before changing lanes?

A

Use the left mirrors to carefully check the left lane before changing to it.

B

Use the right mirrors to carefully check the left lane before changing to it.

C

Reduce speed, shift gears, then brake while changing lanes, to ensure that the vehicle in front is not hit.

Signal, check left mirror, and do a shoulder check to make sure that all is clear and it is safe to change lanes.

Question 9 Explanation: 

Mirrors only give a partial view of the road; there are blind spots even with motorcycles. It is important to perform a shoulder check before changing lanes, even if the mirror suggests the lane is clear.

Question 10

                                                      CORRECT            WRONG

A highly skilled motorcyclist has which of the following qualities?

A

The ability to always drive at a lesser speed than other drivers on the road.

The ability to always be ready for the errors of the other drivers.

The ability to react properly, when prepared in advance to do so.

D

The ability to drive faster and at a greater speed than others on the road.

Question 10 Explanation: 

Being prepared for any kind of circumstance on the road is one of the biggest hallmarks of a skilled motorcyclist. The ability to anticipate and respond appropriately to dangerous situations is what separates good drivers from average and not-so-good ones. It is important to be able to anticipate and be ready for all suddenly-changing circumstances in order to respond properly. Anticipating dangers before they occur can also prevent panic and nervousness, both of which can further complicate situations where the motorcyclist already faces danger.


 

Question 11

                                                      CORRECT           WRONG

How often should motorcyclists check mirrors while driving on a freeway?

A

Every 2-4 seconds.

B

Every 1-2 seconds.

Every 5-10 seconds.

D

Every 15-20 seconds.

Question 11 Explanation: 

Frequent mirror checks enable motorcyclists to be aware of their surroundings, helping to ensure safer driving. Motorcyclists are permitted to drive on freeways only after acquiring the M2 license.

Question 12

                                                      CORRECT            WRONG

When entering a freeway, what is the right time to turn on the turn signal?

When the motorcyclist reaches the exit ramp, from where the turn signal is visible to the other traffic on the freeway.

B

When the motorcyclist reaches the entrance ramp and the freeway traffic is able to see the turn signal.

C

The moment the motorcyclist reaches the acceleration lane and becomes visible to the other traffic on the freeway.

D

Motorcyclists are not required to use a turn signal when entering a freeway.

Question 12 Explanation: 

It is important to ensure that you are clearly visible to all the other drivers on the freeway. Using the turn signal at the entrance ramp ensures that freeway traffic can see the motorcycle, and you, as early as possible.

Question 13

CORRECT

When approaching an intersection where the road is blocked with traffic, a motorcyclist should:

Stop before entering the intersection, waiting until traffic ahead moves on and the way is clear.

B

Honk the horn to warn cars ahead to move on.

C

Move slowly into the intersection, and wait until the traffic ahead moves on before proceeding through the intersection.

D

Keep as close as possible to the car ahead to prevent other vehicles from entering the same lane.

Question 14

CORRECT

At what level should cargo be kept on a motorcycle?

A

Cargo should be kept high to prevent a change in gravity and to avoid any interference with the motorcycle’s balance.

B

It doesn’t matter where cargo is placed, as long as the motorcyclist checks on it regularly.

Cargo should be kept low to prevent a change in gravity and to avoid any interference with the motorcycle’s balance.

D

None of these statements is correct.

Question 14 Explanation: 

Cargo must be secured in a low position. If cargo must be placed on both sides of the motorcycle, be certain to distribute the weight of the cargo evenly on both sides so that balance will not be affected.


 

Question 15

CORRECT

What should a motorcyclist do if the throttle becomes stuck while driving?

A

The motorcyclist should put more force on the throttle to increase speed, apply the clutch and use the kill switch to turn the engine off.

B

The motorcyclist should ease off the throttle, apply the clutch, wait for the bike to slow down and jump off when it is safe to do so.

The motorcyclist should ease off the throttle, apply the clutch, and use the kill switch to turn the engine off once the bike has slowed down.

D

None of the above is correct.

Question 15 Explanation: 

It is not safe to jump off a motorcycle when it is in motion. If the motorcycle is not equipped with a kill switch, pull in the clutch, maintain control of the bike until it comes to a stop, then switch off the engine. Braking can be used to help slow and stop the bike more quickly if it is safe to do so.

Question 16

CORRECT

A motorcyclist should keep the mirrors positioned in such a way that the motorcyclist can:

A

See the lane that is behind them very clearly.

B

There is no need to use mirrors when driving in heavy traffic.

C

See the lane next to them very clearly.

See as much as possible of the adjacent lane and a substantial part of the lane behind them.

Question 16 Explanation: 

Motorcyclists need to use their mirrors properly to ensure they are aware of their surroundings. Mirrors help motorcyclists see traffic around them, giving them greater safety. Motorcyclists should check mirrors every 5 to 7 seconds. Even after checking the mirrors, it is important for motorcyclists to do a shoulder check to visually confirm the traffic situation in advance of any action, be it turning, slowing down, changing lanes and so on.

Question 17

CORRECT

When a motorcyclist carries a passenger, the extra rider’s weight affects the motorcycle and…

A

Will help the motorcyclist to maintain better control and balance.

B

Will result in the motorcycle responding more quickly than usual.

C

Will not have any affect at all on the motorcycle.

Will result in the motorcycle reacting more slowly than usual.

Question 17 Explanation: 

The responsiveness of a motorcycle is directly related to the weight it is carrying. The heavier the passenger, the slower the vehicle will respond. Accelerating, turning, and decelerating will all be slower than usual.

Question 18

CORRECT

How far away from the closest gate or rail should a motorcyclist stop when nearing a railway crossing with a train approaching?

A

At least 1 metre away.

B

At least 15 metres away.

C

At a distance of 50 meters.

At least 5 metres away.

Question 18 Explanation: 

To ensure safety, always stop a good distance - 5 metres at least - from the train tracks when the barrier is down and/or the lights are flashing. Motorcyclists should never attempt to cross around or under gates that have been lowered for an approaching train. Motorcyclists must drive on only after the gates have been raised and it is safe to do so.


 

Question 19

CORRECT

What should motorcyclists take into consideration at railway crossings?

A

Motorcyclists should drive at an angle of 45 degrees minimum to parallel tracks running in their direction.

All answers are correct.

C

Motorcyclists should be alert on approach to railway crossings since specific vehicles are required to stop as part of company policy.

D

Motorcyclists should drive slowly, be careful, keep an eye on the surroundings, and note the signals, lights, gates and flag-persons (if present).

Question 19 Explanation: 

Railway crossings are potentially hazardous due to the fact that trains travel much faster than they seem, and cannot stop quickly. It can take 2 km or more for a train to stop even when brakes are fully applied. Never depend on a train to be able to stop on time to avoid you, and drive on only once the train has passed. Other hazards at railway crossings may include having to stop for other vehicles, and the loss of traction which can occur because train tracks are slippery at all times, and more so when they are wet.

Question 20

CORRECT

How should you react if debris or some other flying object hits you? (Choose 2)

Maintain a firm grip on the handlebars and continue to look up and ahead while still on the road.

B

Speed up to avoid other flying objects.

C

Stop and pull off the road at once.

Get off the road as soon as it is safe to do so.

Question 20 Explanation: 

Even with protective headgear, motorcyclists can be distracted and potentially hurt by debris or flying objects. Be prepared and do not panic. Panic can cause motorcyclists to make potentially fatal driving errors. Maintain a firm grip on the handlebars, drive until there is a safe place to pull over and stop, then assess any damage.

Question 21

                                                      CORRECT            WRONG

A

It refers to a group of motorcyclists driving at large distances from one another in order to increase the following distance between vehicles so that there is less risk to other drivers on the road or to the motorcyclists themselves.

B

It refers to a group of motorcyclists driving in different lanes of the road to maintain a lot of distance between the motorcycles so that there is less risk to other drivers on the road or to the motorcyclists themselves.

C

It refers to a group of motorcyclists driving in a line one behind another so that there is less risk to other drivers on the road or to the motorcyclists themselves.

It refers to a group of motorcyclists driving slightly behind and in the opposite tire track to one another so that there is less risk to other drivers on the road or to the motorcyclists themselves.

 

Question 22

CORRECT

Question 27

CORRECT

If the engine seizes while in use, what should the motorcyclist do?

The motorcyclist should apply the clutch in order to disengage the engine from the rear wheel.

B

The motorcyclist should turn on the four-way flashers.

C

The motorcyclist should apply the brakes as hard and as quickly as possible, then pull over and stop.

D

The motorcyclist should downshift in order to slow the motorcycle down.

 


 

Question 28

CORRECT

Why should motorcyclists not share lanes with other vehicles?

A

By driving close to other vehicles, motorcyclists can remain in the company of the rest of the traffic, which is safer, so lane sharing is actually a good thing.

B

Both the second and the third statement are correct.

C

Lane sharing is useful: two vehicles are more visible than one, so it is safer for motorcyclists to share lanes.

In driving too close to other vehicles, motorcyclists put themselves at risk of collisions and accidents, so lane sharing should be avoided.

Question 28 Explanation: 

Traffic lanes are not meant to be used by two vehicles at the same time – there isn’t enough room. When two vehicles attempt to share lanes, they become too close to one another, increasing the risk of collision. Lane sharing should be avoided; motorcyclists are advised to maintain proper blocking position to ensure that other vehicles do not attempt to enter their lane.

Question 29

                                                      CORRECT            RONG

How does driving over metal gratings, worn out roads or grooved pavement affect the driving of a motorcycle?

It creates a sense of loss of control over the motorcycle.

A

All answers are correct.

C

It results in a balanced and even driving experience.

D

It results in an airlifting experience.

Question 29 Explanation: 

Any time an uneven road surface results in a feeling of loss of control or shakiness, it is important to maintain a strong grip on the handlebars and avoid sudden movements or rash reactions.

Question 30

CORRECT

If a motorcyclist misses the correct freeway exit, what should the motorcyclist do?

A

The motorcyclist should slow down, move onto the shoulder, turn the motorcycle around, drive back carefully along the shoulder and take the missed exit.

B

The motorcyclist should slow down, move onto the shoulder, back up and take the exit ramp that was missed.

C

The motorcyclist should perform a u-turn on the freeway, carefully drive back, and take the missed exit.

The motorcyclist should maintain freeway speed, continue driving, and take the next exit.

Question 30 Explanation: 

Stopping on a freeway is dangerous. Backing up or driving in the wrong direction is illegal, unless under the direction of a traffic officer. If an exit is missed, continue driving until the next exit, where it is safe to pull off the highway and plan an alternate route. In most places where there is an off-ramp, there is a corresponding on-ramp for the opposite direction, providing a safe way to travel back to the missed exit. Alternatively, local roads can be used to get back to the correct exit.

Question 1

CORRECT

What method should a motorcyclist use to avert a collision?

A

Increase speed rapidly to get around the collision, then come to a stop.

B

Slowly tilt your motorcycle in the direction you want to turn and drive around the collision with care.

Quickly lean the motorcycle in the direction you want to turn and drive around the collision.

D

All answers are correct.

Question 1 Explanation: 

Leaning the motorcycle in the direction you wish to travel enables you to change direction quickly. This is known as the counter-steering method.


 

Question 2

                                                      CORRECT            WRONG
