After successfully passing the test, you are not legally obliged to wear special motorcycle clothing. In Germany, helmets are the only compulsory requirement. However, to ensure that you are protected as best as possible in road traffic, you should always wear appropriate protective clothing on your rides in your own interest - in case of doubt, this can save lives.
In terms of length, it is important that your kidneys are well protected. You should choose a longer jacket, especially with jeans. Shorter motorcycle jackets can usually be attached to the motorcycle pants with a zipper.
If protectors are integrated into the jacket, make sure that they sit exactly where they should in the riding position and do not slip.
Textile jackets can usually be machine-washed on the gentle cycle with the addition of mild detergent. More detailed care instructions can be found on the jacket label. It is important that you remove the protectors before putting the jacket in the machine. After about every third wash, you should impregnate the material so that it retains its water-repellent properties.
