motorcycle classCowley College in Arkansas City is offering several Motorcycle Safety training classes. The Motorcycle Safety Training Educational program provides motorcycle rider education using curriculum developed by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) and taught by MSF approved RiderCoaches. The program provides training for beginning and experienced riders.

Even if you have been riding for some time, there’s always something new to learn. Increasing numbers of seasoned riders are participating in the Experienced RiderCourse to hone their skills and fine-tune the mental skills needed for survival in traffic. Using your own motorcycle and helmet, participants will put into practice the techniques of managing traction, stopping quickly, cornering and swerving during this one day course.

The Basic RiderCourse is aimed at beginning riders 15 years of age and older, who have a drivers license or learner’s permit. The two and a half day course is designed to teach the participant how to operate a motorcycle safely, with emphasis on special skills and mental attitude necessary for dealing with traffic.

A motorcycle and helmet will be provided. Graduates of the course qualify for a motorcycle certificate of completion in Kansas/Oklahoma. Upon completion of the course, participants also qualify for a premium discount with many motorcycle insurance providers.

Additional RiderCourses include the Group Riding Module, Seasoned Rider Module, Riding Straight Module, and Intersections Module. All courses and coaches are approved by the Kansas Division of Motor Vehicles and are certified through the Motorcycle Safety Foundation.
