Motorcycle Safety Training
If you want to earn your motorcycle license and enjoy your first ride, or if you're an experienced rider who just wants to improve your next bike trip, Continuing Education has the solution and more to your motorcycle needs.
As a MVA state-approved training center, you could qualify for your Maryland class M Motorcycle license by taking the 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.
If you have any questions or concerns, call registration at 240-500-2236.
There are NO REFUNDS or TRANSFERS to another course once the course you are registered for starts, whether you are in attendance or not.
Students are not guaranteed the certificate for their motocycle license just by attending. You must pass both a written test and a driving test with MVA-required passing scores to receive your certificate, as well as attend all 17 scheduled hours.
Which course do you need? Review the course descriptions for licensed and non-licensed riders.

Already registered? You need a book & enrollment forms! Be sure to pick them up from HCC at registration on the main campus OR at the Valley Mall campus front desk at least ONE WEEK before your class begins.
**HCC is an independent contractor operating under contract with the MVA to provide the above listed Motorcycle Safety Programs.
If you are 16 years of age or under - please note:
New in 2010: The MVA has changed the age requirement for teenagers, "A Class M license will not be issued to anyone under 16 years and 6 months of age and if a "first" license. Proof of satisfactory completion of a driver education course must also be presented". A Motorcycle permit can be issued at 15 years 9 months. The Rider Course Completion Certificate is valid for 6-months from issue. Teenagers should not participate in the Rider Course until they are 16 years old due to, if taken earlier than that, the issued certificate will expire before being able to obtain a license. The student must have also held their Class C learner's permit for at least 9 months AND have completed the minimum 60 hours of driving time with a parent/mentor before a Class M license will be issued.
Please call if you have any questions - we don't want you to waste your $$!
