Learn How to Ride a Motorcycle in Rhode Island
To legally ride a motorcycle in Rhode Island, state law requires every rider to complete a Motorcycle Rider Safety Course and have a motorcycle driver’s license. The license will allow you to legally ride a motorcycle in Rhode Island while the safety program will teach riders the basics of motorcycling and how to stay safe while on the road.
Here is one system that can help you learn to ride safely.
Community College of Rhode Island (http://www.ccri.edu/cwce/motorcycle/)
The CCRI offers motorcycle rider courses to both licensed and non-licensed riders. For non-licensed riders, they offer the Basic Rider Course (BRC) which provides safety education and training that is compulsory for every motorcyclist in Rhode Island. CCRI has incorporated the national Motorcycle Safety Foundation standards into their curriculum. They get the funding for the program through student tuition and from the fees assessed by the Registry of Motor Vehicles. Classes for BRC start in April and end in November.
For licensed riders, CCRI offers the Experienced Rider Course which is designed for licensed riders who have been riding for some time but would like to get a refresher course about motorcycling or to learn new skills.
Through this course, experienced riders will hone their motor skills and fine-tune the mental skills that are important in order for them to stay safe when riding. Additionally, this course will also teach about risk management, increasing visibility, and optimizing lane position.
Students must successfully pass the written exam and the riding skills tests of either program. If you fail the written exam, you will have to reschedule the test at a later date but when you fail to pass the skills test, you will have to reschedule the whole motorcycle safety program. CCRI provides Motorcycle Rider Coaches that are certified and well- trained in order to provide the best motorcycle safety training available.
The Community College of Rhode Island has two locations:
