Motorcycle Ohio Rider Education classes begin in April at Terra State

Registration for the Ohio Department of Public Safety’s (ODPS) Motorcycle Ohio Rider Education Program is underway. Classes will begin at Terra State Community College on Friday, April 11. Those wanting to learn how to ride a motorcycle or refresh their motorcycle safety skills may register at www.motorcycle.ohio.gov for one of the $50 courses.

Classes available through Terra State, 2820 Napoleon Road, Fremont, include:

The Basic Rider Course (BRC) is designed to teach new riders how to safely ride. The class is only three days long, totaling 16 hours. After a successful completion of the skills test, you will leave this class with your motorcycle endorsement. All classes are held over one weekend. 

The Returning Riders Course (BRC-RR) is for those that have had more than one motorcycle permit, but have never obtained a license. This class is a one day course and will be held on Sept. 28, 12–8 p.m. Motorcycles and helmets are provided for both the Basic Riders and Returning Riders Courses.  All you need is a valid motorcycle permit and the excitement to ride. 

The Experienced Riders Course (BRC-ERC2) is for those who already have a motorcycle endorsement and need a MSF card for military purposes or to lower the cost of motorcycle insurance.

Motorcycle Ohio is run by ODPS’ Office of Criminal Justice Services (OCJS). OCJS serves as the lead justice planning and assistance agency for the state. Through research, technology and grants, OCJS serves a wide variety of agencies committed to reducing and preventing crime across Ohio.
