Beginners to Advanced – We Have Classes for Every Skill Level

Motorcycle Safety Class Offerings

Registration for Motorcycle Safety Classes will begin on February 1, 2016.


Improving the safety of motorcyclists on our roads is our primary goal. The Detroit Metro Motorcycle Safety Consortium which includes Henry Ford Community College, Macomb Community College, Monroe County Community College, Oakland Community College, Schoolcraft College and Wayne County Community College District offers hands-on, comprehensive motorcycle safety training in a safe and comfortable environment. 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 and federal funds from the Michigan Office Highway Safety and Planning support this program.

For your protection, all motorcycle courses require you to have the following:

  • DOT-approved helmet (still required for all classes, even though the helmet law has changed)
  • Long sleeve jacket or heavy shirt
  • Heavy duty long pants
  • Eye protection – goggles or glasses (required even with a face shield helmet)
  • Full fingered gloves
  • Boots: Your ankles must be covered and the boot must have a hard sole. High heels or high-top tennis shoes are not permitted.
  • Rain and cold weather gear, as needed
  • Pencil or pen

Please note that these classes are non-refundable and non-transferable.
