Oregon Motorcycle Manual
The Oregon Motorcycle & Moped Manual (Form 735-6367), provided by the Oregon Department of Transportation, serves as a comprehensive for both new and experienced motorcycle and moped operators in the state of Oregon.
The DOT motorcycle manual is full of information that will help you get your motorcycle license and become a safe rider.
Preparing to Ride
Your OR motorcycle manual will go over all you need as you prepare to ride your motorcycle. This includes:
- Proper motorcycle attire.
- Motorcycle controls.
As much as you need to know how to safely operate your motorcycle or moped, you need to know what to wear while you do. Proper gear is extremely important, as you don't have the same protection you would in a passenger vehicle. Should you get in an accident, your attire can mean the difference between life and death.
The manual will teach you the following:
- The right attire to wear while riding.
- How to choose an appropriate helmet.
- The importance of wearing eye and face protection.
As a motorcycle rider, it's extremely important to understand your bike's controls for safe operation.
The OR motorcycle and moped manual will review these controls and go over the following:
- The types of motorcycle controls.
- How to check the controls prior to operating your vehicle.
Riding Your Motorcycle
The ND Motorcycle manual will also inform you about the many situations that are unique to riding a motorcycle. You'll learn all about guidelines for safe vehicle operation, and this information will be the basis for your written knowledge test when you get your motorcycle license.
These topics include but are not limited to:
