IMPROVED MOTORCYCLIST LICENSING AND TESTING PROJECT. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The present study was designed to achieve the following objectives: (1) To demonstrate that improved testing procedures would result in a lower accident rate for novice motorcyclists; (2) To demonstrate the efficacy and public acceptance of a more rigorous motorcyclist testing program which included a higher failure rate and use of a motorcycle testing and training facility; (3) To demonstrate that a state motor vehicle department can administer a licensing program which includes special remedial skills training for applicants who do not pass the driving test; and (4) To establish the cost effectiveness of an Improved Motorcyclist Licensing and Testing Program.
