Motorcycle Training

All military personnel who operate a motorcycle on/off base are required to complete an approved motorcycle rider safety course prior to operating these vehicles. (Ref: DODI 6055.04, OPNAVINST 5100.12, MCO 5100.19F, AFI 91-207). Individuals needing to register for motorcycle safety training can find registration and local information and the current class schedule below. Be advised, open seats are very limited and fill quickly.

 

Motorcycle Safety Course Requirements

The purpose of the Navy motorcycle safety training program is to provide both novice and experienced motorcycle operators with the opportunity to enhance their riding skills, knowledge, and techniques throughout their riding career. The program is an effort to reduce mishaps, which in the past have negatively affected readiness. Commanders are encouraged to establish joint training programs with installation and unit commanders of the other Service and local and State motorcycle safety program managers, wherever practical. Training shall be provided to all Sailors within 30 days of the Sailor's request for training. The levels of motorcycle safety training include:

Level I.
Level I courses include: the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) BRC (Basic Rider Course), any State approved curriculum intended to provide novice riders the skills and knowledge needed to obtain a drivers license motorcycle endorsement, any course approved by any of the other Services, or any entry level rider training course approved by OPNAV N09F/COMNAVSAFECEN. All Sailors who plan to purchase or operate a motorcycle (regardless of their intent to ride the motorcycle on or off base) shall complete level I training prior to operating these vehicles. Additionally, operators of government-owned motorcycles shall complete level I training prior to operating a government owned motorcycle. All riders must complete level I training prior to attending any advanced level motorcycle training.

Level II.
These courses are intended to build upon the skills and knowledge that riders obtain in level I courses. The MSRC (Military Sportbike Rider Course) and Advanced Rider Course are examples of level II courses approved for sport bike riders. The Advanced Rider Course and Experienced Rider Course (ERC/BRCII) are examples of level II courses approved for non-sport bike riders. A complete and current listing of all OPNAV N09F/COMNAVSAFECEN approved level II rider training courses is available on the NAVSAFECEN's Web site.

Follow-on Training. All Sailors who operate motorcycles shall complete Level II training within 60 days of completion of Level I training or upon changing the type of motorcycle ridden. Motorcycle operators who are properly licensed and have completed Level I training may immediately enroll in and complete Level II training.

Refresher Training. All Sailors who operate motorcycles shall complete Level II or Level III refresher training every three (3) years.

General Motorcycle Safety Tips

You can't control other drivers, but you can help avoid serious motorcycle accidents by taking charge of the things you can control. Follow these seven tips while on your motocycle:

 

 

1
  Always wear a helmet
Choose a helmet that displays the DOT label which indicates that it meets federal safety standards.
2
  Know your limits
You and your motorcycle have limits.  Know them!  Do not buy more bike than you can handle.
3
  Watch your speed
Follow posted speed limits
4
  Keep your distance
No one likes a tailgater. Keep a safe distance between your bike and other vehicles.
5
  Signal
Use your signals.
6
  Use both breaks
When braking use both brakes at the same time by applying them slow and steady.
7
  Be Seen
Avoid blind spots and always use your headlights day or night.
