In New York State there are twenty multiple choice questions, you must get fifteen correct to get a learners permit.
five of the qestions are about alchohol proof of various liquors and mixed drinks.
The questions are the same for a car or a motorcycle, so on your motorcycle test you can get a question like this:
If the throttle sinks to the floor what should you do?
put the transmision in neutral.
turn off the ignition.
pull it back up with your toes.
use the brakes to stop the car.
this happened to me when I took my test, although from when I took it to get my auto license I remembered the stupid question, which must have been written by someone who had never driven a car before, any starting mechanic is told that the brakes are stronger than the engine and if the throttle sticks to stop the car with the brakes to stall the engine, get out and see WTF is wrong. they didn't include putting in the clutch because anyone stupid enough to answer correctly wouldn't know what that is(manual boxes are rare in the states, glad the HondaMatic didn't catch on) but putting the clutch in or selecting neutral would blow up the engine if it didn't have a rev limiter, and killing the engine while in motion would leave a weaker person with no steering, and would require both legs to slow the car, of course the right answer was the one that I thought was a joke, you aren't allowed to drive with no shoes on, and a pedal stuck to the floor is hard to pry up with you hands let alone a foot with a shoe on it, go figure.
I have found it difficult to convince my girlfriend to ride my bike around the parking lot let alone get a permit, I have tried to use many arguements including "The judge will take it easier on you for your speeding tickets if he sees that you also know how to ride" and the ever popular "What if you are being chased by nazi's and you find a motorcycle like in one of those WW2 movies?"
