Motorcycle Safety

Delta's Motorcycle Safety program offers hands-on, comprehensive training in a safe and comfortable environment. Our classes are taught by Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) certified instructors who not only have a passion for riding – but riding safely. Improving the safety of motorcyclists is our primary goal. 

We have concluded the 2021 Motorcycle Safety training season. Delta College served over 600 students in 90 classes. Delta College acknowledges and appreciates our many experienced instructors who made this season a success!  
Please check this website in February 2022 for registration information for next year's class offerings.

Students lined up in a Motorcycle Safety class

Delta College trains hundreds of people to operate a motorcycle safely. The Motorcycle Safety Program is offered in late spring/summer and includes on-line safety training, classroom learning and riding a motorcycle on the motorcycle safety course at the main campus. Delta College motorcycle safety instructors are some of the best in the state of Michigan. Our site is well run, organized and the instructors are very knowledgeable with many having over 10 years of instructing experience.

Individuals with minimal experience may take the Basic Rider Course. Delta provides the motorcycle. The focus is on basic riding skills. Successful completion will allow the rider to waive the skills and knowledge test requirement to obtain their motorcycle endorsement. The course is approximately 20 hours and is $50.

Delta’s Motorcycle Safety Program is supported by a state grant administered by the Michigan Department of State and federal funds from the Michigan Office Highway Safety and Planning.

Basic Rider Course

The Basic Rider Course is for those with minimal experience operating a motorcycle. Delta provides the motorcycle with the course instruction happening at our main campus. Focus is on developing basic riding skills.  Successful completion will allow the rider to waive the skills and knowledge test requirement to obtain their motorcycle endorsement.

All students must complete three hours of on-line course training prior to attending the first day of class. A link with instructions will be emailed to the student seven days prior to their class start date.

You must provide your own helmet. Your helmet and all riding gear should be brought to class every day. Delta College acknowledges the State of Michigan's motorcycle helmet law, but it's still a requirement to wear a D.O.T. approved helmet while participating in any Motorcycle Safety Foundation course.

COVID-19 Safety precautions are in place and may change over time. All students will receive an email with instructions on applicable safety precaution requirements prior to class, which may include wearing a face mask. There are no exceptions to these precautions put in place to keep all students safe.

"Had a blast learning how to ride safely. I would recommend this class to anyone who wants to become a rider or better rider."
