If you want to earn your motorcycle endorsement, or if you're an experienced rider who just wants to improve your next bike trip, HCC has the solution to your motorcycle needs. As an MVA state-approved training center, you can qualify for your Maryland class M Motorcycle endorsement by taking a course that meets your goals. All rider courses use State of Maryland Motorcycle Safety Program and Motorcycle Safety Foundation content and are led by instructors who are certified by the Maryland MVA and the Motorcycle Safety Foundation.
Important Information To Know Before You Ride
- Students are not guaranteed the certificate for their motorcycle endorsement just by attending class. Students must pass both a written test and a driving test with MVA-required passing scores to receive a certificate, as well as attend all 17 scheduled hours.
- Once your course begins, you cannot transfer to another course. No refunds will be given once a course starts.
- Once you've registered, you need to pick up your book and enrollment forms at least one week prior to the start of class. Forms and books can be picked up at the Admissions front desk in the Administration and Student Affairs Building on the main campus or at the front desk of HCC's Valley Mall Center.
Documents and Safety Information
Students age 16 and under
Note: Per the MVA, Class M licenses will not be issued to "anyone under 16 years and six months of age and if a 'first' license." Although a motorcycle permit can be issued at 15 years and nine months, the holder would need to complete Driver Education and obtain his or her Class C license before receiving the M endorsement. The same is true for any other potential student regardless of age. He or she must obtain a Maryland Class C license before they can receive the M endorsement. Questions can be directed to the transportation safety office at 240-500-2508.
