Georgia Motorcycle Safety Program Course and Training Programs

Riding a motorcycle can be an exhilarating experience, but it also comes with inherent risks. To help mitigate these risks and promote safe riding practices, the Georgia Motorcycle Safety Program (GMSP) offers a variety of rider education programs designed for riders of all skill levels. A Georgia motorcycle safety program course aims to enhance motorcyclists’ knowledge of motorcycle safety issues and provide life-saving training that can significantly reduce the likelihood of being involved in a crash.

Motorcycle Basic Riders Course

The most popular Georgia motorcycle rider course the GMSP offers is the Motorcycle Basic Riders Course (BRC), which is ideal for new riders. This course consists of approximately 5 hours of classroom instruction and 10 hours of hands-on riding instruction, spread over two or three sessions. Participants are provided with motorcycles and helmets during the course, and upon successful completion, graduates earn a 90-day Motorcycle License Test Waiver, allowing them to bypass the written and riding portions of the motorcycle license application for 90 days from the course completion date.

Motorcycle Basic Riders Course 2 License Waiver

For those who already possess basic riding skills but wish to refresh their knowledge or obtain a 90-day Motorcycle License Test Waiver, the GMSP offers the Motorcycle Basic Riders Course 2 License Waiver (BRC2LW). This course features an informal classroom component that discusses safety concepts based on past riding experiences and current knowledge, as well as on-cycle skills evaluation using the participant’s own motorcycle.

Attendees should bring the following safety equipment:

  • A DOT-approved helmet
  • Eye protection
  • Full-fingered gloves
  • A long-sleeved shirt
  • Sturdy, full-length pants
  • Over-ankle footwear

Advanced Riders Course

Advanced riders looking to enhance their skills and risk-assessment abilities can benefit from the Advanced Riders Course (ARC). This one-day course includes a brief classroom section with interactive activities focused on improving perception and hazard awareness, as well as a range of exercises designed to refine both basic skills and crash avoidance techniques, with an emphasis on braking and cornering proficiency.

In addition to the safety equipment listed above, ARC participants should prepare for a day on the road and bring both water and snacks.
