Motorcycle Returning Rider
This one day course is designed for the experienced, but unlicensed, rider to become licensed and legal. Many experienced, licensed riders use this course as a refresher. Topics will include braking, counter steering, turning, speed judgment, and other techniques necessary for the experienced rider to operate a motorcycle skillfully and safely. Your riding abilities will be evaluated during the first two range exercises. These skills include using the clutch/throttle, stopping, negotiating roadway turns and curves, and smooth shifting. You will not be able to continue the class if you do not demonstrate adequate basic riding skills and no refund will be given. Successful completion will waive the Secretary of State riding skills test.
You are encouraged to provide your own motorcycle for this course as you should be familiar with how your motorcycle operates. Your motorcycle must be titled and insured in your name, properly registered, display a valid license plate, and pass a safety inspection. Please note, if you are taking this course for endorsement purposes, you should be “trailering” your motorcycle to/from class. If you are unable to legally transport your motorcycle, Delta College will provide a motorcycle for your use that day.
All Motorcycle Safety courses are non-transferable and non-refundable.
