Exciting Changes Coming to Our "Basic Rider" Courses!

Beginning in 2016, Lansing Community College will be adopting the Motorcycle Safety Foundation's new curriculum for Basic Rider Course.

With the introduction of its online eCourse, this updated curriculum takes a more interactive approach to education by taking a segment of your classroom learning experience right into the comfort of your own home! By covering key components of the motorcycle's basic operation prior to class (e.g. motorcycle controls, riding strategies, etc.), students will arrive in class ready for their hands-on training.

The eCourse will be a required component for all Basic Rider Course classes.


Instruction is done in a controlled off-street environment located at LCC's West Campus.

Physical Address:
5708 Cornerstone Drive
Lansing, MI 48917


Your class will be taught by Rider Coaches who are certified by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation and have years of experience.
