    VA Motorcycle Manual

    Virginia's Motorcycle Operator Manual was designed to reduce crashes, injuries, and fatalities among riders, as well as to improve safety on the highways. It was developed by the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) with cooperation from the National Public Services Institute, the Motorcycle Safety Foundation, and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. This manual is a must-read for anyone wishing to ride a motorcycle in Virginia, from the novice to the experienced rider.

    You can be licensed only to operate a motorcycle, or you can add the Class M endorsement to your regular license. Either way, riding a motorcycle requires special skills and knowledge.

    Before you take your written and road tests for your motorcycle, there are things you should learn that pertain specifically to motorcycle riders. Being safe on the road depends on this knowledge, and you can find it in the motorcycle manual.

    There are also sample exam questions to help you study for your written test. The manual covers the following topics:

    • Licensing requirements
    • Preparing to ride
    • Control for safety
    • See and be seen
    • Keeping your distance
    • Handling dangerous surfaces
    • Riding at night
    • Dealing with emergencies
    • Carrying passengers and cargo
    • Group riding
    • Being in shape to ride
    • Your motorcycle
    • Earning your license
    • Rider skills training
