New Rider Course Overview

Never ridden before? Don't sweat it. The Harley-Davidson™ Riding Academy New Rider Course is designed to get you comfortable on a bike and give you the skills you need to ride with confidence.

Offered at select H-D® dealers, the New Rider Course provides you with expert guidance from Motorcycle Safety Foundation® (MSF) and H-D certified coaches.

In the classroom, you'll get to know the motorcycle you'll be riding and learn the basics of rider safety skills.

On the practice range, you'll learn braking and turning, along with maneuvers like controlling skids and surmounting obstacles. When you're finished you'll get a MSF Basic RiderCourseSM Completion Card. Depending on your individual state this card may exempt you from having to take the riding portion of your motorcycle license test and may also score you a discount on motorcycle insurance. Ask your H-D® dealer and insurance provider for details.
