Motorcyclists are some of the most vulnerable road users. Motorcyclist deaths occurred 28 times more frequently than fatalities in other vehicles, based on 2016 fatal crash data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The Illinois Department of Transportation is dedicated to ensuring the safety of all motorcyclists through training, education and outreach. The Cycle Rider Safety Training Program offers free rider courses and are the only way to earn a license waiver for motorcycle licensure.
