Rider Course FAQs

How do I register for a class?


We accept MasterCard and Visa. All credit card transactions are processed through a secure Website.  Payment must be made at time of registration. After your credit card payment is confirmed, a system generated receipt will serve as your confirmation.  You will also receive an email confirmation which will include a participant packet with all information needed for the class. This information (waivers, class times, gear needed, and directions) is also available on the web site. You will receive an email reminder two weeks prior to your scheduled class.

What is the attendance policy?


Students must be on time and attend all sessions of your scheduled class. Successful completion of the class, including passing a written and riding skills test, will waive the written and riding skills tests required by the Secretary of State at the time you apply for motorcycle endorsement; card is valid for one (1) year from date of completion.

If you have significant difficulty or become a risk to yourself or others, your Rider Coaches will have the right to remove you from the class. The course fee is non-refundable for early dismissal from the course.

Will I be allowed to ride without completed waivers?


Your signed Waivers of Liability must be printed and brought to class. You will not be allowed to participate without the completed forms. Riders under 18 years of age must have the waivers signed by a parent or guardian. You must have a valid Michigan Drivers License or Temporary Drivers License.

What is the cancellation policy?


If you cancel your registration, you will need to re-register and pay for another class. There will be no refunds or transferring the registration to another class or person.

Are Walk-ins Allowed?
