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.

Tunxis was the Winner of the National Motorcycle Safety Foundation’s (MSF) Outstanding Community Sponsor Award!
The course, which includes six hours of classroom instruction and 12 hours of on-cycle training, is designed to help individuals with little or no riding experience achieve a better understanding of what is involved in operating a motorcycle/scooter. Classes are held evenings and weekends, and vary between three and four sessions. You must have a driver’s license or motorcycle permit and be physically able to operate a motorcycle/scooter. Motorcycles will be provided. Fee: $200 non-refundable 
Designed to improve rider skills in braking, evasive maneuvers, and turning, this course will provide you with “street strategies” to help you guard your safety. You will use your own motorcycle/scooter and will need a valid motorcycle license, registration, and insurance card. Fee: $85 non-refundable
