Motorcycle Safety Program
About the Motorcycle Safety Program
Improving the safety of motorcyclists on our roads is our primary goal. The Detroit Metro Motorcycle Safety Consortium was formed in 1999 to offers hands-on, comprehensive motorcycle safety training in a safe and comfortable environment. Since 1999, the consortium has trained over 50,000 students. Our classes are taught by professional, certified instructors who not only have a passion for riding - but riding safety. State funds from a motorcycle safety grant administered by the Michigan Department of State support this program. See general program brochure for more information.
We offer four different motorcycle safety courses that meet various skill and experience levels:

Are You Looking To Obtain A Secretary Of State Motorcycle Endorsement?
- Upon successful completion of our Basic Rider Course, 3-Wheel Basic Rider Course, or Returning Rider Basic Rider Course, you will receive a completion card that the Secretary of State will accept to waive the riding skills test required for a cycle endorsement. At the Secretary of State, you will still need to take a written test and pay applicable fees before obtaining your endorsement. Please see specific course descriptions for more information.
- Students under the age of 18 are allowed to take the Basic Rider, 3-Wheel Basic Rider, or Returning Rider Basic Rider Courses starting at age 15 if they have a valid driver's license. A parent or guardian must accompany the student to the first class meeting; parent signatures are required on some documents. Please note: The completion card is only valid for one year from the issue date.
