Though the MSF Basic eCourse is NOT accepted as a license waiver by any state department of motor vehicles, or as a license to ride a motorcycle or a learner's permit, it is a highly interactive online program that provides riders of all skill levels with the basics of motorcycling. With integrated graphics, photos and video to help better illustrate the lessons, the $19.99 program allows you to control the pace of your learning.
Taking the MSF Basic eCourse is as easy and convenient as powering up your home computer or laptop. Students can choose when and where to take the course, which saves valuable time and money. And like all MSF training programs, the Basic eCourse promotes lifelong learning. Once you create an account you can retake the course whenever you want a refresher.
Perhaps most importantly, the MSF Basic eCourse serves as an introductory check for anyone interested in riding a motorcycle. It helps you determine whether motorcycling is actually a good personal fit. Although it’s a key component of the MSF’s hands-on Basic RiderCourse 2014 update, it can be completed as an introductory stand-alone program without enrolling in the hands-on course.
Upon completion of the Basic eCourse, you will be able to print a completion certificate that is valid for 30 days. If you are taking the eCourse as a requirement of a hands-on training course, the eCourse must be completed less than 30 days prior to the class start date. If you have completed the eCourse more than 30 days before the class start date, you must re-take the eCourse (you can re-take it for free) by logging into the eCourse server and checking the "Start new attempt" checkbox.
The MSF Basic eCourse includes 12 sections that follow the content in the MSF Rider Handbook:
