ID card icon Nebraska Motorcycle Safety Education Sponsors

The Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has adopted as its basic motorcycle education course, the Motorcycle Safety Foundation beginning rider course entitled “MSF: Basic RiderCourse (BRC)”. This course provides for a minimum of 14 hours of motorcycle instruction with at least 4 hours of classroom instruction and at least 10 hours of actual range time riding motorcycles. The course integrates the classroom instruction and range driving, along with concepts which apply to and practiced on the range. The basic course includes the following topics:

  • Location of the controls and pre-ride procedures.
  • Balance and control of the motorcycle.
  • Riding skills and evasive maneuvers.
  • Safety equipment and procedures.
  • Effects of alcohol and drugs while operating a motorcycle.

Successful completion of any of the courses listed on the Nebraska Motorcycle Safety Education Sponsor list will allow the graduate to have the DMV examiner waive both the written and drive tests when application is made to obtain a license to operate a motorcycle. Course graduates may also be eligible for lower insurance rates. Enrollment is limited and courses often fill quickly so register early.
