Free motorcycle safety classes taught by Va. State Troopers start April 23

May is National Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month, and Virginia State Police are offering its “Ride 2 Save Lives” motorcycle safety courses across Virginia, including in Manassas, now through October.

These courses give current riders the opportunity to learn and practice rider safety, how to handle hazards, special situations, interstate highways, curve negotiation and much more. The courses are conducted by Virginia State Police Motors Troopers in a safe and controlled environment.

“The beautiful spring weather is calling the motorcycling community to Virginia’s highways and scenic byways,” said Col.l Gary T. Settle, Superintendent of Virginia State Police. “Riding a motorcycle is a unique experience with its own unique nuances, making rider safety extremely important. I encourage all Virginia riders to take advantage of this free opportunity to learn from our professional motorcycle troopers. They ride in all weather, all year and can help you better understand the intricacies of operating your bike safely.”

The courses will be held all across the state, including Charlottesville, Harrisonburg, Manassas, Richmond, Salem, Virginia Beach, and Wytheville. All participants must have a valid operator’s license with a Class ‘M’ endorsement, appropriate riding attire, and helmet and eye protection. Motorcycles must be street legal and helmets must be USDOT approved to participate in this program.
