Why should I take a motorcycle safety course?

Upon successful completion of a Basic RiderCourse, you will have learned the basic skills of how to become a safe and responsible motorcyclist. You will receive a completion card that you take to the Secretary of State branch office to waive the required skills test (must be submitted within 1 year of date of course completion) and the CY endorsement will be added for a fee to your Michigan driver's license. You may also receive motorcycle insurance discounts by participating in a course.
