    SD Motorcycle Manual

    Driving a motorcycle can be a lot of fun. However, it also presents a unique set of safety considerations. That's why it's so important that motorcyclists have the proper education and training.

    Part of the education process comes through reading the Motorcycle Manual. New drivers will need to thoroughly know the material contained in it to pass the knowledge test that is part of the permit application process.

    You may pick up your copy at any exam station. Or, if you'd prefer, you may download it.

    However, if you chose to do so, you'll first need to download a free copy of Adobe Acrobat Reader (7.0 or higher) from the Adobe website.

    The manual is divided into two sections.

    The first section is state-specific, and deals with issues facing South Dakota motorcyclists. Among the topics covered are how to obtain a permit and license, types of motorcycle licenses, examination procedures, restrictions, equipment information and requirements, and special regulations.

    The second section is broader in content, and tackles matters important to motorcycle riders everywhere.

    You'll learn about the importance of wearing the proper gear, and how to find the right motorcycle for you. You'll also be educated about a large number of other safety issues, such as basic vehicle control, keeping your distance, increasing conspicuity, crash avoidance, handling dangerous surfaces, flying objects, carrying passengers, and group riding. The detrimental effects of alcohol on motorcycle safety are also addressed.

    While the focus of the manual is on educating the novice driver who is attempting to gain their permit and license, even long-time motorcyclists will likely benefit from reviewing it.
