Explanation: Proper Riding Gear

In order to pass your motorcycle permit exams and to become a safe rider, it’s important to know why a particular answer on the motorcycle written test is correct. 

Wearing the right motorcycle gear means wearing gear that will protect you in the event of a crash and keep you comfortable and safe while you ride. 

Putting on the right gear should be your first step for any ride – no matter how short. 

The proper gear includes:

  • A DOT-approved helmet. 
  • Face and eye protection. 
  • Protective jacket.
  • Protective pants. 
  • Sturdy riding shoes or boots. 
  • Gloves.
  • Hearing protection.

When riding in the heat or the cold, it is important to still wear the appropriate gear. 

Dressing in appropriate layers under your riding gear is a smart choice to help you regulate your temperature. 

When riding in wet conditions, wearing something that will keep you warm and dry is also important. 

You can find more information about this topic in the motorcycle rider’s handbook.
