NEW RIDER COURSE

Never ridden before? Don’t sweat it. The Harley-Davidson® Riding Academy New Rider Course is designed to get you comfortable on a bike and give you the skills you need to ride with confidence, and in many states provides a completion that may excuse you from taking the road test portion of your DMV’s motorcycle operators exam.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING YOUR RIDING ACADEMY EXPERIENCE

Now’s the perfect time to get ready for Riding Academy. Get ready for the classroom and range experiences.

 

WHAT TO DO BEFORE CLASS

Get comfortable on a motorcycle before you even walk into your first class. Make the most of your class by getting in the saddle at your local Harley-Davidson® dealership and trying a Jumpstart™ demo. Getting knowledgeable before your class begins will get you on a bike and feeling comfortable faster.
You’ll mount the motorcycle, set your boots on the foot pegs and fire up the engine under the watchful eye of our trained personnel. And then, sitting comfortably on the motorcycle, you’ll give the throttle a twist and continue to shift through the gears – all while safely and securely attached to the Jumpstart™ platform.

MSF E-COURSE

You are required to complete a 3 hour online MSF e-course prior to your first day of class.
This MSF e-course will help you feel prepared for your first day of class.

Once you are enrolled in the Riding Academy class, you will receive a link to the e-course along with a code that will allow you to access this e-course free. Do not pay the $10 for the e-course, as this is included in the price of the course.

If you do not have access to a computer or internet, or require special assistance – please contact us at the dealership!
