California Motorcyclist Safety Program

Couple riding motorcycle

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 CMSP Motorcycle Training Course (MTC) for beginning motorcyclists. Upon successful completion of the CMSP Motorcycle Training Course students will receive a DMV DL389 certificate that may waive the riding skills test requirement at the DMV. If you haven't completed the written DMV test you must pass it prior to receiving your license endorsement.

The 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.


What to Expect

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.
