The Motorcycle Rider Program at Southern Illinois University, Carbondale, Illinois, conducts FREE Motorcycle Rider Courses throughout Southern Illinois. The courses are designed to provide a foundation of knowledge and skills for people who have never ridden as well as those who have ridden tens of thousands of miles.

The purpose of the Motorcycle Rider Program is to provide quality instruction in safe riding techniques for beginning and experienced motorcyclists. Our goal is to increase your skill level and knowledge, in an attempt to produce a safe and conscientious motorcyclist.

Please take some time to look at the courses that we have available. We offer classes for those who have never been on a motorcycle before, those who have many years experience, and scooter riders.

Non-motorcyclists can benefit from these courses by learning on a first-hand basis what a motorcyclist experiences and the necessity for developing respect for all vehicles on the highway.

If you are interested in taking one of our courses, try to do so early as classes fill fast and our season ends at the end of October each year.
