Learn Motorcycle Safety Foundation proven techniques and vehicle maintenance tips from TTC to stay safe on the road.


You love the freedom that comes from riding your motorcycle on the open road but accidents can happen anytime. This course, whether you’re a first time learner, in for a refresher or seeking a license endorsement, teaches life-saving techniques on how to handle your bike to ride safely and prevent accidents. You may even qualify for a discount on your motorcycle insurance once you’ve completed this course.


Current license waiver requirements are that the student passes the Basic Rider Course and earns the MSF card and endorsement. Students are required to have a Motorcycle Learner's Permit in hand at the start of the class if they want to opt for the waiver.


Essential information for motorcycle courses:

Student riders are required to bring the following riding gear items to class: above the ankle shoes, long pants, long-sleeve jacket or shirt, full-fingered gloves, eye protection (which can be normal glasses) and a full face coverage DOT-approved motorcycle helmet. If you do not have your own helmet, we may be able to provide one for your use.
