Motorcycle Operator Manual
2013 - 2015
It is NDDOT’s policy that all employees have the right to work in an environment free of harassment. An employee may discontinue service to a customer if the customer subjects the employee to conduct, communication, or sexually explicit paraphernalia which may interfere with the employee’s work performance or create a hostile, intimidating, or offensive work environment.Under Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and its related statutes and regulations, no person or groups of persons shall, on the grounds of race, color, national origin, sex, age, disability/handicap, or income status, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be otherwise subjected to discrimination under any and all programs, services, or activities administered by the North Dakota Department of Transportation.

To the Motorcycle Operator:This manual contains important information for those of you who wish to operate a motorcycle. You are urged to study this manual thoroughly. As a motorcyclist, you should remember that you will be traveling on the streets and highways with a variety of vehicles, most of which are larger than your motorcycle. Statistics show that the chances of a motorcyclist being injured in a motorcycle crash are far greater
than any other type of vehicular crash. And one out of every ve motorcycle crashes results
in head or neck injuries. As a motorcyclist in North Dakota, you are subject to the same rules of the road as other motorists, as well as special laws for motorcycles, which are summarized in this manual.  Applicants who do not currently possess a North Dakota operator’s license should study this manual along with the North Dakota
Noncommercial Drivers License Manual 
, available at any
of the Drivers License ofces or online at
