What to expect

When you take a California Motorcyclist Safety Program Motorcyclist Training Course or CMSP Premier Motorcyclist Training Course at the Riding Academy you’ll:

  • Learn to ride on a genuine Harley-Davidson® motorcycle.
  • Get in-class and on-range instruction from H-D Certified Instructors.
  • Learn to safely accelerate, shift, brake, and turn, along with maneuvers to help you avoid a crash.
  • Earn a completion card, which may (varies by state) exempt you from the riding portion of your license exam and score you a discount on motorcycle insurance.
