Riding a motorcycle safely and properly is a skill that must be learned through practice. A special permit or operator’s license is required to operate a motorcycle in Connecticut. All motorcyclists are strongly encouraged to obtain motorcycle training through a quality course and to take refresher rider courses.
Troopers recommend that before getting on your motorcycle, put on a helmet manufactured to standards set by the U.S. Department of Transportation. Connecticut law requires that motorcyclists wear eye protection, so be sure to protect your eyes with a shield on the helmet, goggles or shatterproof eyeglasses.
