M1 written test--any1 recall any curveballs?

Getting my motorcycle permit tomorrow. California. I'll look through the book once but that's about it. I don't expect it to be too difficult and I'm willing to get a few questions wrong but failing would be sort of annoying.

Do you guys remember any curve ball-type questions that threw you for a loop? I remember even on my driver's license permit there that there were a nonsensical questions on there.

Make sure you study the signs and procedures portion of the car DMV manual. Half of the test will be about that.

I've taken the motorcycle test in a couple states and what always gets me is the location of yours bike in relation to upcoming turns/ intersections. For example, when coming up to a 4 way stop should your bike be in the left, center, or right part of the lane?

easy peasy

the sad part is they made me retake my driver's written test when I got my m1. Wasn't expecting that. Passed the M1 (at MSF), failed the C (at the DMV). Had to retake it the next week. read the little booklet for about 10 minutes, passed no problem.

Oklahoma's has a bunch on braking in different situations. When go use which brake ect. Also a couple on alcohol and the length of time it takes to leave your system. Rest was pretty easy.

Jersey had a lot of alcohol stuff that wasn't in the motorcycle manual (but was in the driver's manual). How long you lose your license for, what the penalties were, etc.

I would skim the driver's manual beforehand.

UPDATE: Passed with no problems, got one wrong HA!

Unfortunately though, CA doesn't late me keep my out of state, so my motorcycle license will also qualify me for a new CA driver's license that will Nullify my old AZ one. Once I take the motorcycle test or, more likely the waiver via MSF, I will also be earning the driver's license too. I guess they figure that if you can ride a bike you can drive a car.
