Effective 08/31/2012 as new law took effect as it relates to 16 and 17 year olds seeking their motorcycle licenses.  They will now be required to completePennsylvania’s Motorcycle Safety Training.
Act 84, signed by Governor Tom Corbett, requires these young riders seeking motorcycle licenses to first complete the Pennsylvania Motorcycle Safety Program’s Basic Rider Course.  This course is offered at nearly 70 sites across the state.  The training is FREE toPennsylvania residents.
With this new law,Pennsylvaniais ensuring that young motorcycle riders are given the tools and the knowledge to ride safely on our roadways.  Roughly 400,000 riders in the state have already gone through this proven safety training program since it began in 1984 and graduates rave about how the training has improved their riding skills.
The Basic Rider Course provides an introduction to the fundamentals of safe and responsible motorcycle option and consists of 15 hours of classroom and riding instruction (5 hours of classroom and 10 hours of riding instruction).  The 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 license at the conclusion of the PAMSP training.
Most graduates of this class as well as the Advanced Rider Class will receive additional savings on their motorcycle insurance.  As a graduate of the Basic Rider Course myself, I can personally vouch for the importance of taking this course for all riders both inexperienced and experienced.
For additional information about how to sign up for the Basic or Advanced Rider Courses you can go to or
