    Motorcycling can be fun, economical and safe. It may reduce your carbon footprint.

    However, motorcycle riding can also be hazardous.

    Motorcycle riders are less protected than car drivers and have a greater chance of being killed or injured in a crash.

    You can become a safe rider through acquiring the necessary skills and understanding of the road environment, by always being alert and defensive and by accepting that the prime responsibility for your safety on the road is yours.

    Our procedures for getting a motorcycle rider licence are designed to help you become a safe rider. The Motorcycle riders’ handbook, our training programs and the testing procedures are designed to get you confident in the fundamental skills. We trust you will maintain and further develop these skills.

    This handbook contains important information about riding techniques, how to cope with hazards and some road rules for motorcycles. Please read it carefully.

    Enjoy your riding, but above all, ride to survive.
