Test Your Knowledge
Rider Perception Challenge (coming soon)
Test your visual perception skills with the Road Sign Test and the Collision Traps Test. In both tests, an image is flashed for a split second followed by a multiple-choice question about the image. The tests not only help you identify common road signs and typical traffic collision traps, but also demonstrate how quickly your eyes and mind can work together.
Test Your Motorcycling Knowledge
Test yourself with this 48-question quiz on the basics of motorcycling. These questions were drawn from the Basic RiderCourse classroom session and handbook.
Seeing is Believing (Optical Illusions)
Safe riding is a skill of the eyes and mind as much as it is a skill of the hands and feet. It’s important that riders have well-developed perceptive skills. Having good perception means to “see and understand accurately.” Our eyes see but our mind interprets, and sometimes we can be fooled into perceiving something that’s not there or missing something that is; and that can be disastrous when evaluating risk factors in traffic. The MSF RiderCourse uses the strategy of Search, Evaluate, Execute (S.E.E.) to describe the decision-making process that should be used while riding. Our eyes do the searching and our brain does the evaluating. But do we perceive accurately?
