Endorsed motorcyclists who want to be a part of the Motorcycle Safety Advisory Task Force may apply now through May 15. The 15-person task force represents Minnesota motorcyclists and provides input to the Minnesota Department of Public Safety on the operation of the Minnesota Motorcycle Safety Program and motorcycle safety in general.

Members must:

  • Own and operate a motorcycle currently registered in Minnesota.
  • Ride a minimum of 3,000 miles per year.
  • Have a valid Minnesota motorcycle license endorsement.

Members will be required to take a rider training course during the first year of their term.

Those interested can apply online on the Minnesota Secretary of State website.​


MMSC Moped Rider Course No Longer Available

​The Minnesota Motorcycle Safety Center (MMSC) is no longer offering a moped rider course. MMSC switched to new basic rider course curriculum that will not accommodate moped students.

Any person who has a valid Minnesota driver's license may operate a moped without taking the moped test. Anyone without a driver's license, regardless of age, must obtain a moped operator's permit. Additional information about moped permit requirements is online in the Motorcycle Manual.

Additional information about licensed training providers is available on the Minnesota Department of Public Safety Driver and Vehicle Services website.
