Motorcyclist Safety Program

Motorcyclist Safety Program

The California Motorcyclist Safety Program Motorcyclist Training Course (CMSP MTC) is designed for the novice rider with no (or limited) street-riding experience. This course includes both classroom and on-cycle instruction. You will learn fundamental skills required to operate the motorcycle and progress to street riding skills and strategies. 

The MTC is mandatory for those under the age of 21, but is also recommended to those 21 and older who are seeking to obtain a motorcycle endorsement on their California driver license. For over 60 years, the Pacific Safety Center (PSC) has specialized in on-site, customized safety solutions for Southern California. As a CMSP affiliate, we are proud to offer the MTC for beginning motorcyclists. Upon successful completion of the CMSP Motorcyclist Training Course students will receive a DMV DL389 certificate that may waive the riding skills test requirement at the DMV.



Topics covered include fear, understanding how motorcycles turn, proper cornering strategies, and emergency crash avoidance skills. The course is based on the most current research in rider safety and utilizes modern training methods. 

Though designed for new riders, any rider that has not taken a motorcycle course will benefit from this clinic. Motorcycles and helmets are provided in this course. 

There will be a written exam at the end of the second classroom session and a riding exam at the end of the second day of riding.
