Motorcycle Training Program

Update: Unfortunately, the motorcycle training program at NOVA has been discontinued as of this summer. Please check with the DMV for other training providers. Thank you for your understanding. Stay safe and healthy!

 

Co-sponsored by the Virginia Rider Training Program, DMV, and NOVA, this 15-hour course (10 hours on the range and 5 hours in the classroom) is for anyone who wants to learn to ride a motorcycle.  You’ll learn the basic skills of motorcycle operation, effective braking, and obstacle avoidance, as well as safe riding strategies – skills normally acquired only after several years of trial-and-error riding. Successful completion of the Basic Rider Course provides you with a temporary State motorcycle license.
