About the Study Guide

You are looking at the Illinois Offroad Rider’s Ed Study Guide. At the present time, you cannot obtain off-road education certification from Offroad Ed. However, you can use this Study Guide as a resource to learn more about off-road safety.

  • When riding off-road, you usually can avoid the main cause of motorcycle accidents: drivers of larger vehicles who disregard the motorcyclist’s rights. Most often, the driver of the larger vehicle claims he or she “didn’t see” the motorcycle.
  • Other factors in accidents include the motorcyclist’s lack of skills or training:
    • Overbraking
    • Turning too wide and losing control
    • Drinking alcohol, which impairs the ability to perform basic maneuvers
