Motorcycle Rider Education

Do you want to learn to ride a motorcycle? Try the Central Community College Motorcycle Rider Education Course, which provides the beginning rider with classroom and riding instruction taught by professional coaches.

CCC will provide:

  • Motorcycles: The course uses central control mounted 250cc Nighthawks with a 28-inch seat height. The motorcycles require at least 100-degree knee and hip flexion.
  • Helmets, if needed. You may wear your own helmet as long as it is DOT-certified.
  • Manual for study and coupon for the online eCourse, which is a prerequisite for the basic rider course. You will receive a code for the coupon once you pay for the course. You must have a desktop or laptop computer, internet access and a compatible web browser with javascript enabled. Call 402-461-2441 if you need access to a computer.

Each student must:

  • Have a valid driver’s license or learner’s permit.
  • Pay the $199 fee.
  • Provide a parental waiver for riders between 15 and 18 years of age.
  • Present the certificate of completion for the eCourse to the instructors at the beginning of the campus course.
  • Wear long-sleeved garments, long pants, shoes or boots with low heels that cover the ankles, gloves and eye protection.
  • Attend all sessions.
  • Receive a passing score for riding and knowledge tests.

Rider Capability

  • All students must be physically and mentally capable of controlling a motorcycle.
  • All students must already be able to balance a two-wheel vehicle such as a bicycle. The course is not designed to teach someone to balance a single-track, two-wheel motorcycle.
