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.
