Explanation: SIPDE Risk Management and Avoidance for Motorcyclists

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. 

SIPDE is a risk management and judgement system (another version of SEE) that motorcyclists can use to manage risks and avoid them as they ride. 

SIPDE stands for “SEARCH, IDENTIFY, PREDICT, DECIDE, EXECUTE.”

In the Execute stage, you’ll need to take the course of action that you’ve decided is best for avoiding the hazard you’ve identified. 

Depending on the situation, you may need to execute one or more of the following actions:

  • Use the brakes.
  • Speed up.
  • Slow down.
  • Stop.
  • Swerve.
  • Turn.
  • Change lane positions. 
  • Use your horn. 

There is no one size fits all response to risks on the road. You’ll need to take the course of action that will allow you to manage the unique hazards you face as you face them. 

As you ride, you’ll need to constantly be scanning for, identifying, and responding to hazards.
