Motorcycle Education Curriculum Specifications. Final Report.
McKnight, A. James; And Others
This report contains specifications for a motorcycle safety education curriculum designed to reduce the incidence and severity of motorcycle accidents. The specifications prescribe objectives, prerequisites, methods, materials, equipment, facilities, and proficiency measures for six units of instruction: (1) basic riding skills, (2) street riding principles, (3) street riding skills, (4) maintenance, (5) off-street operation, and (6) preparation for travel. The instructional units are intended to be configured in a variety of ways in order to accommodate the range of interests and experience levels that characterize individuals seeking motorcycle instruction. Six specific courses are identified: basic on-street, basic off-street, comprehensive improvement, on-street transition, and off-street transition. It is reported that the instructional program, developed from the specifications by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation, was pilot tested on forty-eight students and revised to reflect experiences gained during the pilot test.
