Moto Curious?

Don’t know where to start?

We got you!

Here’s the best part- You don’t need to own a bike and you don’t need to know anything about motorcycles to start learning! 

When it comes to finding places that offer motorcycle classes, there are a few options you can explore. Start with a Google search on these topics to see what is available near you. 

Motorcycle Training Schools: Look for dedicated motorcycle training schools in your area. These schools specialize in providing comprehensive training for riders of all skill levels, including beginners. They usually have certified instructors, training facilities, and a structured curriculum to help you learn the ropes of riding. Examples include the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) training centers, Total Control Advanced Riding Clinics, and local independent training schools. I took the MSF course through Middle Tennessee and loved it! Classes are also a great way to make riding friends.  

Community Colleges: Many community colleges offer motorcycle safety courses as part of their continuing education programs. These courses are often open to the public and provide classroom instruction and on-bike training. Check with community colleges in your region to see if they offer motorcycle classes.

Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV): Some DMV offices or state transportation agencies offer motorcycle training programs. These programs are designed to meet the licensing requirements for motorcycle endorsements. Contact your local DMV or check their website for information on available courses.

Dealerships and Motorcycle Clubs: Motorcycle dealerships, like Harley Davidson, host beginner rider clinics or partner with training schools to offer courses to their customers. Additionally, motorcycle clubs or organizations may organize training events or be able to point you in the right direction for finding training opportunities.

Online Courses: While hands-on training is crucial for learning how to ride, there are online resources that can complement your learning journey. Websites like RideApart and RevZilla offer online tutorials, videos, and interactive courses that cover various aspects of motorcycling, from basic skills to advanced techniques. These can be a great supplement to your practical training. Also watching youtube 

Remember, availability and options may vary depending on your location, so it's best to conduct an online search specific to your area. Use keywords such as "motorcycle training," "motorcycle classes," or "motorcycle safety courses" along with your city or region to find local options.
