Our Motorcycle Safety Program for Class M licensing is designed for both beginning and experienced riders. Courses are taught by instructors trained and certified by the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA) and the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF). Successful motorcycling is not just a matter of being careful and having good instincts; it requires specialized knowledge, skills, techniques, and strategies. If you have never ridden, are self-taught or have learned from friends, you will benefit from our professional training.

consist of both classroom and range (on-motorcycle) sessions. A training
motorcycle will be reserved for your use when you register for the Basic Rider Course (BRC) or Alternative Basic Rider Course (ABRC). Students must come to
the range sessions prepared to ride by wearing a long-sleeve shirt or jacket,
long pants, sturdy low-heeled shoes or boots that cover the ankle-bone,
full-fingered leather or other good-grip gloves, a Department of Transportation
(DOT)-certified helmet that completely covers the ears and eye protection (face
shield, goggles, or even ordinary spectacles or sunglasses). The program will
provide helmets, gloves and eye protection on loan while the course is in
session. Classes ride rain or shine. Water is provided during all classes.
Saturday and Sunday students should bring a snack or bag lunch.
Class M Licensing
who are currently licensed in Maryland (with a Class-C license) and
successfully complete the BRC or ABRC courses will receive a Maryland MVA
Certificate of Completion. This certificate must be presented to any full
service MVA (in addition to a vision exam and paying a licensing fee) to
receive your Class-M (motorcycle) license endorsement. This endorsement is
required if you wish to legally ride motorcycles on public roads. Out-of-state
residents will receive a Maryland Motorcycle Safety Program completion card
only and should check with their hometown MVA to see if this card will be
accepted for licensing. Students who successfully complete the BRC, ABRC or
BRC2 course will receive a Maryland Motorcycle Safety Program completion card.
You should present this card to your insurance company for possible premium
