Motorcycle safety class set at WITC

Due to demand, Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College has added additional motorcycle safety training classes at the Rice Lake and New Richmond WITC campuses.

This 16-hour course is approved by the Department of Transportation. It is designed to teach the beginner or experienced rider the safe techniques of riding a motorcycle.

It consists of six hours of classroom and 10 hours of on-cycle instruction. Students completing and passing this course will be issued a waiver to take to the local DMV to obtain their class M license. This means the student does not have to take the motorcycle driving test at the DMV.

Motorcycles are provided by WITC. Students must provide their own safety gear. Classes are offered week days and weekends in June and July.
