Practice Area photoLegal Commentary . Georgia laws on Motorcycle Operator Safety Training Program covers who shall be in charge of the training programs, how one becomes an instructor of such training programs, what is required for one to participate in the training program and what is received by an operator after successful completion of the training program. If you consider hiring a Georgia attorney to handle your motorcycle accident, the attorney should be thoroughly read in Georgia laws on the required motorcycle operator safety training program and knowledgeable of the Georgia case law in regards to this program. As an experienced vehicle accident lawyer, Charles Scholle has represented catastrophically injured people and bereaved families for nearly two decades, building a strong record of successes.

In addition to these necessary laws on the training program, these Code Sections grant specific powers to the Department of Driver Services; the Board of Driver Services; the Commissioner of Driver Services; and to the State-Wide Motorcycle Safety Coordinator regarding the motorcycle operator safety training program.

A motorcycle in Georgia is defined in Code Section 40-15-1(5) as “every motor vehicle having a seat or saddle for the use of the rider and designed to travel on not more than three wheels in contact with the ground, but excluding a tractor and a moped.” This includes scooters, motorbikes, minibikes (with engine size 51 CC or greater) into the same category as a motorcycle.
