New Law In Effect Requiring Training for Teen Motorcyclists
A new law is now in effect requiring 16 and 17 year olds seeking their motorcycle licenses to first complete Pennsylvania’s motorcycle safety training.
Act 84, signed on July 2 by Governor Tom Corbett, requires these young riders seeking motorcycle licenses to first complete the Pennsylvania Motorcycle Safety Program’s Basic Rider Course.
The training is free to Pennsylvania residents.
The BRC provides an introduction to the fundamentals of safe and responsible motorcycle operation and consists of 15 hours of classroom and riding instruction – five hours in the classroom and 10 hours on the course. These 15 hours can be applied toward the 65 hours of on-the-road training required for riders under 18 years old who have a motorcycle learner’s permit. Young riders who complete the course will be given a certificate-of-completion card. If they have completed all of the learner’s permit requirements they can be tested for their motorcycle license at the conclusion of the PAMSP training.
Information about the PAMSP training can be found at www.pamsp.com. Motorcycle safety information, including videos about the training programs and testimonials from graduates, can be found at PennDOT’s Live Free Ride Alive website at www.LiveFreeRideAlive.com.
