Free motorcycle safety course April 20 at NVCC-Manassas, approved by Va. State Police

Warmer weather traditionally leads to an increase of motorists of all kinds on Virginia roads, especially motorcycles.  With that increased traffic comes the increased likelihood of motorcycle and vehicle interactions.  Virginia State Police is once again offering its “Ride 2 Save Lives” motorcycle self-assessment courses across the Commonwealth in hopes of making those interactions as safe as possible.

One such course is upcoming on Saturday, April 20, at 9 a.m. at Northern Virginia Community College’s Manassas Campus. To register,  visit Space is limited and advanced registration is required. 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.

VSP report that THIS WEEK, five motorcyclists have been killed on Virginia roadways (one in Alexandria, three in Henrico County, and one in Campbell County).  Virginia State Police is investigating two of them, including one that occurred Tuesday (April 9, 2024) on Campbell Highway in Campbell County and one that occurred Tuesday on Interstate 295 in Henrico County.

The “Ride 2 Save Lives” self-assessment courses allow 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.

Additional courses are available through October.
