Thinking about pulling your motorcycle out of storage? Or have you decided – finally – to make this the summer you get out on the open road? Moraine Park Technical College’s Motorcycle Rider courses offer a convenient way to learn to ride and obtain your motorcycle license.

Class registration is now open, with available weekday morning and evening options, as well as weekend courses running now until the end of September.

The course is designed for riders of all levels but is aimed particularly at those seeking a motorcycle license. Students get actual riding experience in the basic skills of motorcycling, including straight-line riding, turning, shifting, braking and the mental skills needed for control.

Week-long morning classes are scheduled for May 2 to 5, May 16 to 19 and June 6 to 9. Morning classes begin at 8 a.m. and run until noon each day.

Evenings are May 23 to 26, June 6 to 9 and June 20 to 23, with times of 5 to 9 p.m.

For weekends, the College is running 20 Friday to Sunday sessions from April through September.

The weekend schedule includes class on Friday from 5 to 8:25 p.m., Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Upon successful completion of the course, students will be issued a waiver to take to the Department of Motor Vehicles. This waiver allows students to get a motorcycle license without taking a road test.

All courses are held at Moraine Park’s Fond du Lac campus. Motorcycles and helmets are provided by Moraine Park.
