If you want to earn your motorcycle license, 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 license 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 motocycle license 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, Records and Registration Office 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. Proof of satisfactory completion of a driver education course must also be presented." A motorcycle permit can be issued at 15 years and nine months. The Rider Course Completion Certificate is valid for six months after issue. Due to the fact that the issued certificate will expire before they are able to obtain a license, teenagers should not participate in the Rider Course until they are 16 years of age. The student must have also held their Class C learner's permit for at least nine months and have completed the minimum 60 hours of driving time with a parent/mentor before a Class M license will be issued.
