Motorcycle Safety Foundation providers are the backbone of motorcycle rider training. As a provider, you bring certified Motorcycle Safety Foundation training to your community. This creates better riders, improves public perception of motorcycling and provides a valuable service for riders in the area.
HOW DO I BECOME AN MSF TRAINING PROVIDER THAT OFFERS
MSF COURSES AND PROGRAMS TO THE PUBLIC?
- First, make sure you have:
- Contacted the State Motorcycle Program Coordinator, if you have one, for rules and requirements for motorcycle safety training providers. (Obtain contact information for your State Coordinator)
- Military installations should contact the Military Motorcycle Program Coordinator for their branch. (To obtain contact information for your Military Coordinator or Representative)
- International entities interested in becoming MSF training providers should email their request to email@example.com.
- Reviewed the rules and requirements for setting up a small business in your state or for your military branch.
- Apply to MSF for acceptance into the Rider Education Recognition Program (RERP). You’ll need:
- A currently active MSF RiderCoach or RiderCoach Trainer who can assist you with the process (the State or Military Coordinator may be able to recommend someone in your area.)
- A training range.
- A standard range requires a 160’ x 260’ area that is paved with asphalt or concrete and is free from hazards and obstacles.
- The riding area should be closed off from regular vehicular and pedestrian traffic.
- A classroom.
- The classroom should be clean, have enough space for participant comfort, have capability for use of modern audio visual and other electronic instructional equipment.
- Restroom facilities should be nearby and, ideally, the classroom should be near the range.
- A private residence cannot serve as a classroom.
- Secure storage for training motorcycles and course equipment.
- Coverage for students, motorcycles, RiderCoaches, all other site personnel and MSF is required.
- Training Providers may purchase an MSF RiderCourse Insurance Plan or obtain comparable insurance independently.
- If my state does not have a designated Motorcycle Program Coordinator (or Military Coordinator) who can I contact for more information?
- Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
