The Michigan Rider Education Program oversees both public and private organizations that offer motorcycle rider education classes. The Michigan Department of State is committed to assuring that instruction is given by qualified instructors (Rider Coaches) in an approved facility using approved curriculum courses by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF).
