Motorcycling can be a thrilling and challenging experience. The safe operation of a motorcycle requires practiced skill, knowledge, and a respectful understanding of the limitations imposed by the operator, the machine, and the environment.
Believing in the benefits of rider education, the Tennessee Department of Safety administers the Tennessee Motorcycle Rider Education Program.
This program provides a combination of rider education and other motorcycle issues. For example, public awareness initiatives, information of the effects of alcohol and drugs, licensing procedures.
The Tennessee Motorcycle Rider Education Program offers two intensive courses to prepare you for the challenges that the streets offer. One is for beginners, the other for more experienced riders. This allows students with similar skill levels to learn together.
Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) Certified Instructors/Coaches teach courses in a safe, off-street environment. These Instructors/Coaches are highly experienced riders with the patience, understanding and knowledge to help students develop the skills they need to become safe, responsible motorcyclists.
Current riders and anyone thinking about riding (ages 14 and up) are encouraged to enroll in a Rider Training Course.
Please call the site you wish to attend for the appropriate course fee.
To participate in either class, every TMREP Site requires every rider to be prepared; specifically you must have the following safety gear:
Since classes are held in all weather conditions (except icing), you are advised to bring the following:
