Motorcycle Safety Course Requirements

The purpose of the Navy motorcycle safety training program is to provide both novice and experienced motorcycle operators with the opportunity to enhance their riding skills, knowledge, and techniques throughout their riding career. The program is an effort to reduce mishaps, which in the past have negatively affected readiness. Commanders are encouraged to establish joint training programs with installation and unit commanders of the other Service and local and State motorcycle safety program managers, wherever practical. Training shall be provided to all Sailors within 30 days of the Sailor's request for training. The levels of motorcycle safety training include:

Level I.
Level I courses include: the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) BRC (Basic Rider Course), any State approved curriculum intended to provide novice riders the skills and knowledge needed to obtain a drivers license motorcycle endorsement, any course approved by any of the other Services, or any entry level rider training course approved by OPNAV N09F/COMNAVSAFECEN. All Sailors who plan to purchase or operate a motorcycle (regardless of their intent to ride the motorcycle on or off base) shall complete level I training prior to operating these vehicles. Additionally, operators of government-owned motorcycles shall complete level I training prior to operating a government owned motorcycle. All riders must complete level I training prior to attending any advanced level motorcycle training.

Level II.
These courses are intended to build upon the skills and knowledge that riders obtain in level I courses. The MSRC (Military Sportbike Rider Course) and Advanced Rider Course are examples of level II courses approved for sport bike riders. The Advanced Rider Course and Experienced Rider Course (ERC/BRCII) are examples of level II courses approved for non-sport bike riders. A complete and current listing of all OPNAV N09F/COMNAVSAFECEN approved level II rider training courses is available on the NAVSAFECEN's Web site.

Follow-on Training. All Sailors who operate motorcycles shall complete Level II training within 60 days of completion of Level I training or upon changing the type of motorcycle ridden. Motorcycle operators who are properly licensed and have completed Level I training may immediately enroll in and complete Level II training.

Refresher Training. All Sailors who operate motorcycles shall complete Level II or Level III refresher training every three (3) years.
