Dear Georgia Riders,
I know firsthand that Georgia’s beautiful and varied landscapes provide motorcyclists with tremendous opportunities for enjoyable riding. However, it takes tremendous skill and concentration to keep you and those traveling around you safe and secure.
With over 360,000 properly endorsed riders, the Department of Driver Services (DDS) is committed to promoting rider education, motorcycle awareness, and licensing as the best means for keeping everyone safe on the road.
I encourage you to study this latest edition of the Georgia Motorcycle Operator Manual when preparing to obtain your License or as a refresher of the skills and techniques for safe riding. As a properly licensed rider myself, I know the value of continuing to develop good motorcycle skills.
With more than 200,000 registered motorcycles on Georgia’s roads, obeying traffic laws and practicing safe riding skills will go a long way for your safety and the safety of others who share the road with us.
Because real riding takes real skills, I urge you to take both the Basic, Experienced, and Advanced Motorcycle Safety training courses, always wear protective gear, respect the ride and never drink and ride.
Regulations in red are new this year.
