Born to ride? Not so fast: Maui’s roads can be a death sentence for any motorcycle rider, seasoned or otherwise. An easy way to be safe is to brush up on the newest road rules at EdVenture at Maui College’s Motorcycle Safety Foundation’s Basic Rider Course.
Steer clear of road rage with the three-Day program, which will be held on Friday evenings at 6pm, as well as Saturdays and Sundays starting at 7am. Students will receive classroom instruction and hands-on range coaching with motorcycles provided to UHMC from Leeward Community College
“Maui residents have been waiting a long time for this, and I am so excited that it has all come together,” said Lori Teragawachi, Director of the Office of Continuing Education and Training at UHMC. “Over the passed few years we have been accumulating quite a waiting list for this, and now we can start getting students on motorcycles!”
Successful completion of the Basic Rider Course will prepare you to safely ride a motorcycle as well as waive the Department of Motor Vehicle’s Motorcycle Skills test. Potential students should remember that they will still have to take and pass a written test (permit test) required by the Department of Motor Vehicles to get a motorcycle license.
“It’s great news for Maui and offers the community a positive and safe environment to learn or brush-up on their motorcycle skills,” said Diane Grogan, Operations Manager for EdVenture, UHMC.
