Welcome to the New Hampshire Motorcycle Rider Training Program. If you are interested in becoming a motorcyclist or if you are already a rider and want to improve your skills or lower your insurance rates, this is the place for you!

The Motorcycle Rider Training Program trains approximately 3,000 students of all skill levels each year. We offer courses at nine different training locations throughout the state.

The motorcycle rider training season runs from early April to the end of October, including weekends, weekdays, and holidays.


We currently offer the following courses based on a curriculum developed by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation:

  • The Basic Rider Course is an introductory course intended for new riders with little or no experience. This class allows you to obtain your motorcycle endorsement without further testing at the DMV.
  • The Intermediate Rider Course is a follow-up course for students who have taken the Basic Rider Course within the past year. The course provides an opportunity for more riding practice and a re-test for students who did not pass the Basic Rider Course the first time.
  • The Experienced Rider Course is intended for riders with a minimum of one year and/or 1,000 miles riding experience, who want to further hone their riding skills. Riders in this course use their own motorcycles.
