MOTORCYCLE RIDER’SHANDBOOKINSERT PHOTO HEREOctober 2020
The Idaho Motorcycle Rider’s Manual paraphrases thelanguage of Idaho Statues. Courts go by the actual languageof the statues, not this text.The Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) is committed tocompliance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and allrelated regulations and directives. ITD assures that no personshall on the grounds of race, color, national origin, gender, age,or disability be excluded from participation in, be denied thebenefits of, or be otherwise subjected to discrimination underany ITD service, program, or activity. The department alsoassures that every effort will be made to prevent discriminationthrough the impacts of its Programs, policies, and activities onminority and low-income populations. In addition, the departmentwill take reasonable steps to provide meaningful access toservices for persons with limited English proficiency.2
PREFACERiding a motorcycle can be safe and fun when the rider becomes more knowledgeable and skilled.This manual, even though designed mostly for the novice rider,can educate all motorcycle riders about safe riding habits andstrategies to recognize and avoid or safely manage potential riding hazards to avoid accidents.The Idaho Transportation Department used information providedby the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF)and Idaho STAR to compile the Idaho Motorcycle Rider’s Manual, knowledge and skills tests.Enhanced licensing requirements along with quality motorcyclerider education and increased public awareness have the potential to reduce the number and severity of motorcycle crashes.3

APPLYING FOR AMOTORCYCLE ENDORSEMENTBeing a responsible motorcycle rider can be safe and fun. Itrequires additional skills and a heightened sense of awarenessabout other highway users, traffic, and environmental conditions.Responsible riders manage potential problems and avoiddangerous situations.This manual will help riders learn how to safely ride and handle amotorcycle along with how to pass the knowledge and skillstests. Experience makes for a better and safer motorcyclist.An experienced and responsible motorcyclist may be a goodmentor for teaching new riders how to handle today’s traffic, environmental conditions, and scenic winding highways. However,there is no substitute for the mental awareness and physicalskills required to safely ride.Objectively assessing motorcycle riding skills and knowledge isdifficult at best, and it is even harder for friends and relatives tobe completely honest about their own skills. Taking a knowledgetest is the best way to determine if a potential rider has the minimum knowledge necessary to safely ride a motorcycle on thehighway.All riders are encouraged (or required if under 21) to attend anentry-level motorcycle education course which providesknowledge and hands-on training before receiving an endorsement.The knowledge test questions are based on information, bestpractices, and concepts found in this manual.
