The California Department of Motor Vehicles will conduct an improved motorcycle driver licensing and training program to demonstrate that upgrading begineer's skills for new motorcyclists will result in lower accident rate. Refined motorcycle driver skills and knowledge (Motorcycle Safety Foundation, MSF) tests, and a modified NSF Beginning Rider Course (to assure that randomly selected selected begineers have the basic knowledge and skills to drive safely) will be used. The first phase of the study will consist of the preparation of a comprehensive plan for conducting and evaluating an improved motorcycle driver license examination program. In the second phase, the accident and violation experience of two groups (study and control groups) will be analyzed periodically for 2-3 years following issuance of license. The third phase will involve an in-depth analysis of the project and a report which will include recommendations for conducting driver license programs, knowledge and skill test criteria, and supplemental education and training requirements.
