If you’re ready to experience the unique thrill of riding your own motorcycle for the first time, there’s no better place to learn than the New Rider Course at Harley-Davidson® Riding Academy. Experienced riders, take your skills to the next level with the Skilled Rider Course. Available only at Authorized H-D® Dealerships.
The Motorcycle Safety Foundation has updated its curriculum to maximize time on the bikes. With the newly designed curriculum, a 3-hour online e-course is required and must be completed from the Motorcycle Safety Foundation's website. The e-course allows for a self-paced, relaxed learning environment from home. The eCourse includes several quizzes which meet Texas DPS written test requirements.

The e-course must be completed within the window of 30 days before your first class. Once completed, please print a certificate and bring it to your first class. Please note - Texas DPS requires that you bring the e-course completion certificate with you for the first day of class. You will not be allowed to take the class without this certificate.
