MCC offers motorcycle class

A state statute effective July 1 requires proof of completion of a motorcycle safety course.[/b] The Basic Rider Course is offered at MCC Bradenton, 5840 26th St. W., and MCC Venice, 8000 South Tamiami Trail.

Nationally certified Motorcycle Safety Foundation rider coaches teach safe street-riding skills through classroom instruction and on-cycle training to students 16 and older on trainer motorcycles provided by the college.

After successfully completing the course, riders receive an MSF endorsement that may be taken to the Florida Department of Motor Vehicles office to seek a license.

The class meets 6-9:30 p.m. on Thursdays; and 6:45 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. The fee is $209 for students 21 and older and $189 for students between 16 and 20.

For more information, call MCC Bradenton at (941) 752-5203 or MCC Venice at 408-1412.


What is this?

Is it true, what is the law?

I took the course 6 years ago, and have the endorsement on my DL but the the paper copy of course.

Am I worried over nothing, just some stupid writer?

I think it is only for new riders.

IIRC, it for endorsements going forward and does not affect those having current MC endorsements on their FL DL.

I'd take it anyhow, it may seem like an expense
you don't need , but if it refreshes information that
you use to avoid a spill and medical bills
would it not be worth the time and expense.

Ugh, do I sound like a salesman? Oh no!
my worst fear realized

I had to finally get signed up for the MSF class. I procrastinated way too long and can't get into the DMV for the road test before July 1st. They are booked solid in Lee and Collier.

It was still $240. The same as when I looked at taking it last year.
