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. Our motorcycle-safety courses are conducted with earmarked state funds, funded by motorcyclists, and administered through a motorcycle-safety grant from the Michigan Department of State.
