Motorcycle RiderCourses Additional RiderCourses


These RiderCourse modules together provide multiple opportunities to address not only fundamental motorcycle safety concepts and skill development, but contemporary and emerging issues such as crash trends, group riding, re-entry riders, and effects of various impairments, the effects of aging on motorcycle operation and motorist’s awareness of motorcyclists.


These classroom-only modules are designed to prepare riders with the knowledge and awareness needed to comprehend motor­cycle operator tasks for safe street operation.


Classroom activities follow the lessons from the MSF Basic RiderCourse with topics add­ed from other MSF rider education programs. This course does not replace on-cycle training such as the Basic RiderCourse.
