With its quality roads and beautiful scenery, Texas is a great place for motorcyclists to enjoy the open road. The number of registered motorcycles in the state is nearing 420,000 – and growing fast.

Motorcycle safety is a top priority for TxDOT. Our Share the Road public awareness campaign is aimed at drivers, encouraging them to be more aware of motorcyclists and to give them extra space and consideration on the roadways.

Motorcyclists are reminded that there are things they need to do to be as safe as possible, such as wearing a helmet and maintaining a safe speed.

For information about obtaining a motorcycle operator license, visit the Texas Department of Public Safety. The Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TxDMV) can help with motorcycle registration and license plates.
