Choose the online quiz that's best for you:

BikeSafetyQuiz.com is a first-of-its-kind resource developed by Ride Illinois that teaches adults, children, motorists, and truck drivers how to share the road safely. The interactive quizzes cover safety techniques and relevant state laws using images and short explanations for each answer. The quiz is the teaching tool!

Each quiz has three distinct levels: Bronze, Silver, and Gold. There are thought-provoking quizzes for four different audiences:

  • Adult Bicyclist – for teens and adults
  • Child Bicyclist – for 4th and 5th graders (or younger with adult help)
  • Motorist/Drivers Ed – for motorists and student drivers
  • Truck Driver – for drivers of buses and other large vehicles
“I have been a driver for a long time; I have been a biker even longer. Even with all of that experience, taking the quiz was a good reminder and a good challenge to some things I thought I knew!”
Sheila Simon
Former Lt. Governor of Illinois
"We love using BikeSafetyQuiz. We find the kids enjoy doing it and love to quiz the parents too. Perfect for the e-learning that we were forced into this spring and summer."
Mike Oleszek
Wheaton North HS Driver Education Teacher

Bike Safety Quiz Details

Ride Illinois works to increase safe interactions – and reduce resentment – between motorists and cyclists. There are serious public education gaps on bicycling safely and on driving in the presence of cyclists. In-depth courses about cycling are limited in reach given the time and resources needed to participate.

By taking a “Some (info) to Lots (of people)” approach, the quiz is helping to share bike safety information with more people. Since 2013, more than 110,000 people in Illinois have completed BikeSafetyQuiz!

The quiz is not just for individuals wishing to test and grow their knowledge. Schools, after-school programs, scouts, driver’s education instructors, and other institutions can administer it for groups of people. Cities and police departments can also use the quiz for public education and constructive enforcement.

Partnerships are critical to spreading the reach of the BikeSafetyQuiz.com. There are many ways one can incentivize adults and children to take BikeSafetyQuiz.com! Get creative and help Ride Illinois spread the word about this useful teaching aid.

We continue to broaden our reach via partnerships with various audiences  including those listed below. If you’d like to receive more information or promotional materials to support the use of the quiz for your group, please contact us at info@rideillinois.org.
