Virginia Rider Training Program

If you don't think you have the knowledge or skills to pass the motorcycle operator license tests, or you would like to improve your skills, you should enroll in a motorcycle rider training course.  Classes are designed for both beginning riders and experienced riders, and are taught by certified motorcycle safety instructors.  Classes will provide you with the opportunity to learn new techniques and practice your skills in a controlled, safe environment.

Classes are offered at community colleges and other locations throughout the state. For information about a course near you, dial 1-800-446-9227 or contact DMV at 1-866-DMV-LINE, 1-800-435-5137 or consult the list below.
