Motorcycle Safety

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING:

Enrollment is confirmed by the online registration process. No exceptions. Before you start the on-line registration process, you will need to scan your driver’s license to send as an attachment. Without your driver’s license and payment by credit card (we are ONLY accepting payment with a credit card), you will not be allowed to register for the class. No cash or checks will be accepted if you show up at the college. If you do show up at the college, you will be directed to our library in order to access a computer to apply for the program on-line. Class location, times, etc. will be included in your e-mailed confirmation.

Note – the eCourse must be completed before the Beginner Rider Class and you must produce your certificate from the Motorcycle Safety Foundation. You will not be allowed to take the class without this certificate (this is a State of Michigan requirement for the program). The eCourse needs to be completed within a 30 day time frame. Do not register if you don’t have access to a computer. You cannot complete the eCourse ahead of the 30 day window. Example: If you register for July 28, 29, 30 class, we will send you at that time your coupon code on June 29 to take the class.

Note: The Basic eCourse is Windows compatible only, meaning it will not work on a tablet (like an iPad) or Mobile Phone. If you do not have access to a Windows compatible device, you may use a computer here at GOCC in the library or use your local library. Our GOCC library hours are 8:00 am to 8:00 pm Monday thru Thursday, closed on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

 

The staff at the college will not be able to assist you with any technical issues or program questions. You will have to call the MSF eCourse Support Desk for assistance, contact info will be provided.

No. Transfers are not allowed. If you cannot attend the course that you registered for, you will need to cancel that registration by phone at (269) 294-4276 or email Paul Aivars via our Contact Form and then re-register for another course, paying for that course as well.

No, you may not send another person in your place. Each registrant’s identity is verified before the beginning of the Motorcycle Safety Course.

We offer this low-cost program as a courtesy to the community. It is sponsored by a grant from the Michigan Department of State. This program is staffed on a limited, part-time basis and therefore administrative levels prevent us from allowing refunds and transfers.
