Victoria College offers motorcycle course for beginners and experienced riders


Nine registration dates remain this semester for Victoria College’s motorcycle safety course.

VC’s Motorcycle Basic RiderCourse is designed with the beginner in mind, but experienced riders can also benefit from this course. Students will learn how to operate a motorcycle, the best protective clothing to wear, how to avoid dangerous situations and what’s most important – how to get out of those dangerous situations you can’t avoid. By the end of the course, student skills will be challenged at the two-year rider level.

Helmets and motorcycles will be provided for students taking the course.

Successful completion of the course should waive the driving portion of the Texas Department of Public Safety exam. Graduates of this course will still be required to take a written and vision exam at the DPS office.

Upcoming classes for the spring semester are:

  •     Feb. 21-23 (register by Feb. 19)
