 Dear Motorcyclist:We’re asking you to help make the highways in our state the safest in the nation.This Tennessee Motorcycle Operator Manual has been developed to help youbecome a better motorcycle rider. It supplements the
Tennessee Driver Handbook 
and 
Tennessee Driver Study Guide
, which can be found at any Department of Safety Driver Service Center located throughout the state.When you apply for a motorcycle license, you must take a knowledge test based-upon the information covered in this manual. If you don’t already have a valid driver license, you must also take a knowledge test based on the Tennessee DriverStudy Guide. This will test your knowledge of Tennessee’s traffic laws that apply toall motorists. After you pass the knowledge and vision tests, you can take the on-cycle skills test.The Department of Safety will waive the motorcycle knowledge and on-cycle skillstest if you have completed an approved 
Tennessee Motorcycle Rider Education Program
at one ofour state certified motorcycle training centers. Motorcycling is a wonderful way to enjoy our beautiful Tennessee highways and byways. Just remember, take responsibility for your own safety...and help us savelives.

Operating a motorcycle safely in traffic requires special skills and knowledge. The MotorcycleSafety Foundation (MSF) has made this manual available to help novice motorcyclists reducetheir risk of having a crash. The manual conveys essential safe riding information and has beendesigned for use in licensing programs. While designed for the novice, all motorcyclists canbenefit from the information this manual contains.The original Motorcycle Operator Manual was developed by the National Public ServicesResearch Institute (NPSRI) under contract to the National Highway Traffic SafetyAdministration (NHTSA) and within the terms of a cooperative agreement between NHTSAand the MSF. The manual and related tests were used in a multi-year study of improvedmotorcycle operator licensing procedures, conducted by the California Department of MotorVehicles under contract to NHTSA.The purpose of this manual is to educate the reader to help avoid crashes while safely operatinga motorcycle. For this edition, the MSF has updated and expanded the content of the originalmanual.These revisions reflect:The latest finding of motorcyclesafety research.Comments and guidance provided by the motorcycling, licensing and traffic safetycommunities.Expanded alcohol and drug information.In promoting improved licensing programs, the MSF works closely with state licensingagencies. The Foundation has helped more than half the states in the nation adopt theMotorcycle Operator Manual for use in their licensing systems. Improved licensing, along withhighquality motorcycle rider education and increased public awareness, has the potential toreduce crashes. Staff at the Foundation are available to assist state, private and governmentalagencies in efforts to improve motorcycle safety.Tim Buche
