Pennsylvania Motorcycle Safety Program

While COVID-19 disrupted motorcycle training services in 2020, PennDOT understands the importance of offering motorcycle training to the public and has been working hard to ensure motorcycle training continues in Pennsylvania.

We are pleased to announce that limited training will be made available for individuals interested in taking a motorcycle safety course through the Pennsylvania Motorcycle Safety Program, weather pending, through Third-Party Motorcycle Training Providers.

PennDOT encourages you to keep checking back regularly for updates to the training provider and location list

While PennDOT encourages individuals under the age of 18 to take a hands-on course through one of our listed providers, PennDOT will continue to offer virtual training for individuals under the age of 18 throughout the COVID-19 emergency.

As always, classes operating under the PAMSP are free to Pennsylvania class M permit and motorcycle license holders.  Successful completion of a PAMSP Basic or Intermediate course waives the requirement to take a skills test at a PennDOT Driver License Center and automatically earns the permit holder their motorcycle license. Motorcycle permit holders who complete a 3-wheel basic course will earn a motorcycle license with restriction prohibiting the operation a of 2-wheel motorcycle. 

Individuals under the age of 18, please click here. for additional information on the process to obtain your motorcycle license.
