Motorcycle Safety Classes

Classes resume May 13!  To stay within state guidelines limiting gatherings to 10 people or fewer, enrollment for each class will be capped at 8.

To help reduce the exposure and spread of COVID-19, Motorcycle Ohio will not be offering loaner helmets for the 2020 riding season. Motorcycle Ohio will reevaluate the loaner helmet program at the end of the 2020 riding season along with the status of the COVID-19 to determine we will be loaning helmets for the 2021 riding season.  Students MUST provide their own DOT-approve helmet.
