Biking Safely in North Carolina

Motorcycle Rider

When it comes to operating a motorcycle safely, the Governor of North Carolina takes things seriously. So seriously, in fact, that the Governor’s Highway Safety Program and the N.C. State Highway Patrol have partnered to bring riders the BikeSafe North Carolina program.

The program is open to motorcyclists and offers a variety of skill lessons and assessments in order to make North Carolina roads and highways safer for everyone. Classes and assessments are offered in Raleigh and other cities across the state.

Rider Skills Days
Rider skills days offer assessment on your present motorcycling skills. You can also learn about motorcycle control, factors that contribute to collisions, and professional riding techniques. Classes are offered in Raleigh on March 20, April 17, May 1, May 29, and throughout the rest of the year. A full listing of classes can be found here.

One of the best ways to stay safe on the road is to constantly improve your riding skill. Classes are offered both on- and off-road. To take part in a class, you need your own registered motorcycle, a helmet, eye protection, current license with endorsement, proof of insurance, and the proper clothing.

Typical Agenda
While some classes may stray from course due to participation and discussion, classes follow a typical agenda:

  •  Morning classroom session
  • Short ride (45 minutes)
  • Lunch
  • Afternoon classroom session
  • Long ride (Approximately 2 hours)
  • Last classroom session
  • Dismissal

If there is someone who regularly rides with you as a passenger, feel free to bring them along. They must wear the same protective gear as the driver in order to actively participate.

It’s FREE!
Many people are surprised to discover that the BikeSafe program is free to anyone who wishes to register and participate. The goal of the course is not to raise money for any agency. Instead, the goal is to make the streets safer for everyone, reducing injury and death.

It is recommended that riders take a course once a year. This helps every person that operates a bike to sharpen their skills and reduce their chance of collision. If you own and operate a motorcycle, it is in your best interest to register for an upcoming class.
