I would like to register for the Motorcycle Class for novice riders to learn to control the bike and then actually take the beginner class. I have called and emailled since Wednesday and there has been no answer and/or return call. I am interested in the upcoming class on June 3-5. I have a drivers license and the fee of $75, please call for the cc info and to advise of the exact location of the class.

Thank you,
Anissa Williams

Before enrolling in the class do you must own a motorcycle? im thinking of buying one, but i wont purchase until i know for sure i have a motorcycle liscense

Comment from Thomas Nelson Community College - October 12, 2011 at 11:52 am

Owning a motorcycle is not a prerequisite to participating in the motorcycle rider safety course. Please bring the following items with you:

· Full fingered gloves – preferably leather
· Sturdy over-the-ankle foot protection (boots are best)
· Long sturdy pants
· Long sleeve shirt or jacket
· Glasses or sunglasses
· Rain gear (if needed)

Thomas Nelson Community College will provide the motorcycles and some helmets. If you have a three quarter or full-face helmet that meets DOT standards and fits properly, you are highly encouraged to use it.

I was wondering when will the basic motorcycle course 2012 date be out or are they already out. I was hoping to register for a class in April when I come home as I am currently away overseas working.

Comment from evette lawrence - January 12, 2012 at 9:43 pm

will the times, and dates for the BRC be the same for the year 2012? because me and my husband are planning on purchasing motorcycles by the middle of february and would like to take the course. will we need to provide our own motorcycles? what will we need to take the course in all, and what are the dates that the classes will pick back up again?

Comment from Johnell - February 22, 2012 at 8:59 pm

Do you give the safety course for the Can-AM style of bike or does the calss have to be done on a regular motorcycle?

Comment from emanuel - April 9, 2012 at 1:56 pm

i took the course back in 2009. i still have my motor cycle safety card. im military and i let my motorcycle license expire due to a deployment. so in order for me to get a M endorment on my license i have to get an updated card SO do i need to redo the course even though i have a valid motorcyle safety card or can they just update my card

Comment from Thomas Nelson Community College - April 12, 2012 at 3:54 pm

Unfortunately, once you let you motorcycle license expire, you will have to retake the Motorcycle Safety Course again. Once you get your motorcycle license renewed, you will only need to keep it current in order to maintain your M endorsement.

If you have additional questions, please contact our Motorcycle Safety desk at 757-825-2758.

I would like to register for your motorcycle training program. I tried to apply online but your registration site is down. Something about the certificate. Anyways is there an available class this coming weekend? If so I would like to register if you could give me assistance in how to go about that. Thanks

Comment from Tweed - August 20, 2012 at 7:46 pm

Can I bring my personal Can Am Spyder to use for this class?

Comment from Ashlynn - September 22, 2012 at 9:08 am

When you take the motorcycle course, will you recieve a license or a permit, and still have to take the course at the DMV?

Comment from Thomas Nelson Community College - October 8, 2012 at 8:42 am

When students successfully pass the motorcycle Basic Rider Course, they receive a 30 day provisionary motorcycle classification that they can take to the DMV and have added to their driver’s license.
