Explanation: Reflective Clothing

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. 

Bright colors and reflective materials on your motorcycle clothing and protective gear is a great way to increase your visibility to other drivers. 

Reflective materials should be worn during the day and during the night to increase your visibility. 

Riding gear with protective materials on all sides can help alert drivers coming from all directions of your presence. 

Reflective clothing is especially useful at night, when the headlights of other vehicles will make you much more visible. 

In addition to reflective clothes and bright colors, you can increase your visibility by keeping your headlight on during the day and the night as well.
