Michigan Rider Education Program (Mi-REP)

Administering the Michigan Rider Education Program (Mi-REP) is an important aspect of the Michigan Department of State's traffic-safety mission. Schoolcraft College's Motorcycle Safety Program uses safety standards established by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) to ensure consistent and comprehensive training. The curriculum provides both beginning and experienced motorcyclists with a foundation of good judgment, fundamental skills, and hands-on experience.

Look Twice. Save a Life.

Prospective motorcyclists, and experienced motorcyclists, who are seeking a motorcycle endorsement should enroll in one of following path-to-Endorsement courses:

  1. Basic RiderCourse (BRC) - Web Enhanced | Beginning Riders | E |
  2. Basic RiderCourse 2 (BRC2) | Experienced Riders | E |

Successful completion results in a certificate of completion that waives the Secretary of State's written knowledge test and riding-skills test. Students will then bring this certificate of completion to the Secretary of State to apply for the endorsement, complete the vision screening, and pay the endorsement fee.

Age Requirements

Students under the age of 18 are allowed to take the Basic RiderCourse or Basic RiderCourse 2 starting at age 15 if they have a valid graduated driver license. A parent or guardian must accompany the student on the first day of class; parent signatures are required on some documents.
