The Springfield Police Traffic Section has developed a Civilian Motorcycle course. This one-day course will be offered to the public to give riders tools to make them better riders in the attempt to reduce motorcycle crashes.
To participate, you must have the following qualifications and equipment:
A valid motorcycle endorsement (not a permit)
A motorcycle (250cc or greater, no three-wheel variety) all motorcycles must have legal exhaust and legal handlebars (i.e., no “ape hangers”). All motorcycles must be street legal and subject to inspection.
A legal DOT approved Helmet
Footwear that covers your ankles
Proper motorcycle attire
Optional equipment but not required - armored or padded motorcycle gear
Signed liability waiver
This course will cover beyond basic riding techniques, motorcycle handling, object avoidance, and other techniques and skills to make the attendees safer riders. This is not a beginner’s course and is intended to make a good rider better or to make a great rider hone their skills.
