Motorcycle Safety Basic Training

Course Sessions - 4/22/16 through 9/18/16

View Information and Schedule

This course is structured for students who:

  • want to learn to ride safely
  • have failed the riding skills test twice
  • are at least age 15 or older and able to ride a 2-wheel bicycle

This course is geared to students with little or no experience on a motorcycle. This training covers the mental and physical aspects of riding, protective gear, common and special riding situations. The weekend class is Friday nights, 5:30-9:30 p.m. with Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.; and Sunday from 8:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. (except where noted).

  • On Saturday and Sunday the class will be separated into 2 or 4 hour blocks. We cannot guarantee any specific times, so you must be available for the full day. Students are required to be on-site only when scheduled.
  • Written and Skills tests will be administered. Upon successful completion of this course, participants will receive an MSF certificate that waives the motorcycle riding test required by the Secretary of State (SOS). However, you still need to take the written test at the SOS office.
  • The weeknight Basic Rider course runs each evening from 5:30-9:30 p.m., Monday through Friday and covers the same materials. It is a little slower paced, with more time to absorb the information.

You must be on time for all class sessions. Instructors will wait only 5 minutes. If you do not arrive on time, your place will be given to an alternate. No-shows who wish to sign up for another session must pay an additional $25 registration fee. Availability is limited and classes fill very fast.

Upon successful completion of the State approved Motorcycle Safety course (both the knowledge and skills tests) the Secretary of State will waive the required riding skills test for motorcycle license endorsement. However, a short written test will still be given by the Secretary of State’s Office at the time of license application. In addition, a more extensive written test will be given as part of this course.

Returning Basic Rider Course

View Information and Schedule

This one-day course is designed for the rider who has been away from the sport for a time or the experienced rider who needs to become licensed. Many experienced riders use this course as a refresher. Topics include braking, counter-steering, turning, turning speed judgment and other techniques to operate a motorcycle with skill and safety. Mott Community College recommends that you provide your own properly-titled and registered motorcycle. Proof of insurance and passing a cycle safety inspection will be required. Your riding abilities will be evaluated during the first two range exercises. These skills include clutch/throttle control, stopping, shifting, negotiating roadway turns. You will not be able to continue if you do not demonstrate adequate basic riding skills and no refund will be given. Successful completion of the course waives the Secretary of State riding skills test.
