The Importance of Motorcycle Safety Courses

Motorcycle accidents are often catastrophic. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there were 192 motorcyclist fatalities reported in North Carolina in 2015. Many of these accidents were not the fault of the motorcyclist involved, but were instead the result of a negligent driver.

However, the more skills motorcyclists have in their toolbox, so to speak, the greater their chances are of being able to avoid or prevent an accident. Enrolling in motorcycle safety programs and taking motorcycle safety training is a great idea, even if you are an experienced rider.

Motorcycle Safety Courses in North Carolina

You can learn more about motorcycle safety instruction in North Carolina through the North Carolina Safety Education Program Website. According to the website, some of the programs offered include:

  • Basic Rider Course – The basic rider course is a 20-22 hour class that is designed for those who have never before ridden a motorcycle, as well as those riders who are “re-entry” riders who have not ridden for a very long time.
  • Basic Rider Course 2 – Basic rider instruction is a great idea for the motorcyclist who has been riding for a little while, but is not a seasoned rider. For this course, it’s recommended that you have at least six months’ worth of riding experience.
  • 3WBRC Course – This course, the three-wheel basic rider class, is for those who want to learn how to ride three-wheel, three-track motorcycles.
  • Advanced Rider Course (ARC) – Finally, advanced rider instruction is for those who are very comfortable on a bike, but want to enhance their skill set and develop more awareness. In this course, personal risk-management strategies will be discussed and practiced.

Why Learning about Motorcycle Safety Matters

Motorcycle safety instruction is important for riders of all levels. Through motorcycle safety programs, riders can acquire or refine important – and even lifesaving – skills that they need when on the road.

In addition to basic operation, traffic laws, and operation how-to, safety classes can also teach things like how to use peripheral vision to see oncoming dangers, how to brake in an emergency, options for swerving, practice in cornering, and more. By putting your skills to the test in a motorcycle safety course, you get practice that could be essential later on.

Enrolling in a Motorcycle Safety Class

If you are ready to make safe motorcycle riding a priority, do not delay in enrolling in a motorcycle safety course. Most sessions cost between $100 and $200, and can be taken at various times throughout the year. While North Carolina does not require motorcycle safety instruction in order to get a motorcycle license for operators 18 years of age and above (according to the North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles), enrolling in a course is one of the smartest things that you can do.
