All Motorcycle Training Courses Cancelled Through June 1

The Minnesota Motorcycle Safety Center canceled all motorcycle training courses through June 1 at all MN State training sites statewide due to COVID-19 concerns. Riders who have registered for these courses will be contacted by the training site for refund or rescheduling information.

Once motorcycle training courses resume, class sizes will be limited to eight students instead of 12 to keep the total number of people on the range at any time to 10. Two instructors teach each course. MMSC instructors will sanitize motorcycles after each course. 

MMSC will provide additional updates if anything changes. 

A valid motorcycle permit is required to use the Basic Rider Course skills test to obtain your motorcycle endorsement. Expired motorcycle permits are accepted if they have been expired for less than one year. 

Gov. Walz signed a bill into law that extends the expiration date of permits that expire during the COVID-19 peacetime emergency. More information is on the DVS website. 

​DVS reopened 14 exam stations on May 19. More information about locations and services is on the DVS locations page.
