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
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.
