York Technical College has partnered with Cox's Harley-Davidson® to provide Motorcycle Riding Academy classes. A blend of classroom instruction and range riding, the MRA New Rider Course delivers the basics of motorcycle operation in Harley-Davidson® style. Learn in a relaxed, supportive environment from instructors certified by both the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) and Harley-Davidson®.
Upon successful completion, participants will receive an MSF Rider Course Completion Card as well as a waiver form which can be submitted to the SCDMV to complete their motorcycle endorsement and take the SC skills test. The completion card may also qualify students to receive insurance discounts.
**All participants will need a valid Motorcycle Learner's Permit with a current address.
You will not be admitted to the class without a learner's permit, or if your permit is expired.
No refunds will be issued.
IF YOU LIVE OUTSIDE OF SOUTH CAROLINA, THE CLASS WILL NOT WAIVE YOUR RIDER TEST TO GET A LICENSE IN YOUR STATE. CHECK WITH THE DMV IN YOUR STATE OF RESIDENCE.
However, it will be helpful to be prepared to take and pass the test.
Students should possess the ability to ride a bicycle and operate a manual transmission.
