Motorcycle Safety Training Information:

Hennepin Technical College (HTC) has partnered with the Minnesota Motorcycle Safety Center (MMSC) Driver and Vehicle Service (a division of the Minnesota Department of Public Safety) along with community and corporate sponsors to provide one of the most comprehensive safety programs in the world. The MMSC and HTC are committed to reducing motorcycle crashes, injuries, and fatalities.

Research shows that rider education is the most critical aspect of any motorcycle safety project. The MMSC and HTC offer riders of all experience levels a Basic Riding Course, Experienced Rider Course, and Moped Training.

Basic Rider Course - HBIA5005
The Motorcycle Safety Foundation’s Basic Rider Course is a 14.5 hour program designed to teach basic motorcycle operational skills and advanced skills such as swerving, braking, corners, and street riding strategies. The Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) supplies the curriculum and materials and instructors are MSF-certified. The course includes both classroom and on-cycle instruction with high-quality personalized coaching and several hours of riding practice. There is a limit of 12 per class. Register early! Classes fill very quickly!

Experienced Rider Course - HBIA5006
Whether they’ve been riding for one year or twenty, riders need to keep learning. That’s where the Experienced Rider Course comes in. Riders hone their mental strategies to a razor-sharp edge in practicing advanced motorcycle handling skills on their own bikes. Certified instructors draw from student knowledge and experience to coach riders to success. Experienced riders MUST also provide proof of valid insurance and driver ’s license. One companion may accompany the experienced rider student as a passenger on the bike. (5 hours)

MOPED Training Class - HBIA5000
To ride safely, moped riders need the same mental strategies a motorcyclist needs. This course is a benefit to anyone who wants to ride on two wheels. (4 classroom hours)
