OCC partners with Secretary of State for motorcycle safety courses

Ready to experience the open road on two wheels? Oakland Community College (OCC) and Michigan Secretary of State are offering three Motorcycle Safety programs through June.  A motorcycle endorsement is required to drive on public roads; the motorcycle safety course is required for teens.

Basic Rider Course- Web Enhanced: Designed for someone who has minimal experience operating a motorcycle, this course focuses on the development of basic riding skills. 3 hours of online preparation is to be completed prior to class start date. This course is offered Apr. 22-23; Apr. 29-May 1; May13-15; June 3-5; June 10-12 and June 24-26.

Basic Rider Course- Traditional: Same content and course duration as the Basic Rider Course-Web Enhanced, however this is all in-person instruction. Available May 20 –May 22.

Returning Rider Course: A one-day course designed for the experienced but unlicensed rider to become licensed and legal. Many experienced, licensed riders use this course as a refresher and skills tune up. This session takes place May 7 or June 18.

Courses will be held at OCC's Auburn Hills campus at 2900 Featherstone Road. Full details on each course are available here or contact the office at (248) 232-4167.

To obtain an endorsement, drivers must successfully pass a motorcycle safety course, OR pass a written and vision test at a Secretary of State office, obtain a motorcycle temporary instruction permit which allows drivers to practice riding legally on the streets, pass a motorcycle skills test at a third-party testing organization like OCC, and present your skills test certificate at a branch office.

Michigan has 488,765 residents with a motorcycle endorsement on their driver's license and 249,547 registered motorcycles.
