Motorcycle Rider Responsibility Act of 1992 - Amends Federal law to revise eligibility requirements with respect to grants to States for traffic safety programs to authorize the Secretary of Transportation to make such grants if the State has in effect a law which makes unlawful the operation of a motorcycle by a covered individual (any individual under age 21 and any individual who has been licensed to operate a motorcycle for less than two calendar years) who is not wearing a motorcycle helmet, or an individual whenever there is a passenger under age 21 on the motorcycle who is not wearing a helmet. (Current law calls upon States to require any individual regardless of age to wear a helmet while operating a motorcycle.) Adds as a further requirement for such grants (including second-year and third-year grants) that States have a law requiring any individual under age 21 to complete a motorcycle safety rider course before being issued a motorcycle operator's license.
