Motorcycling is one of the most exciting forms of transportation. Part of the thrill is knowing that you are totally responsible for every action taken—from timing each shift to keeping a keen eye out for other motorists. To understand these responsibilities and get the most from your experience, a Connecticut Motorcycle Rider course is the place to start. Expert instruction is offered to both the beginner and the experienced rider. Students must have the ability to balance and push a motorcycle and should have lots of enthusiasm. A 10% insurance discount and exemption from the Motor Vehicle Department’s on-cycle skills test are offered to students upon their successful completion of this program.
Private classes also available! Ask us for more information.
Classes are offered April through October in cooperation with the state Department of Transportation’s Office of Highway Safety.
