What type of moves does the CA DMV Motorcycle drive test consist of?

For suspicion, yes. But they can't just pull you over. They have to have a reason. For example: They are looking for a blue Ford Escort that was involved in a hit and run. You happen to drive a blue Ford Escort. They can pull you over and question you. But they can't just drive down the road and run your tags for the hell of it. They have to have a reason for running your tags. Why? Because if the tags come back with a hit (wanted for something, tags come back stolen) then they HAVE to have had a reason to stop you in the first place or else they have to answer why they ran your tags for fun.

Here in Texas a cop can pull anyone over for "probable cause" and most every time they run a check of the plates. I find that usually when an officer pulls you over, the cards are really stacked against you because in most cases, they have already done their homework. I was recently pulled over for speeding, tried everything to get out of it, but the smart *** wrote me up anyway. $130.00. Fortunately, I was able to do the defensive driving course online and have the ticket dismissed. Still had to pay the $130. :-) There is no legal reason required to pull you over or to run your plates. All thats required is suspicion (probable cause) by the officer.

Is it bad pollution wise to ride your bicycle next to the street?

Had an incident many years ago. Irritated a cop and was going down the road making sure everything was right. He pulled me over and eventually it came down to him telling me that he could find some drugs n my glove box, if I kept messing with him and I would be arrested. So I told him what he wanted to know then he left. So they can do anything they want within reason, and some things beyond reason.
