Riders of all types of motorcycles, including sportbikes, scooters, and trikes, are encouraged to participate.

Unfortunately we cannot allow participants to keep the vest at this time, however, riding with high visibility gear is considered a best practice for both daytime and nighttime riding safety.

Under truly severe conditions, the class will be rescheduled.

Yes, you need a valid motorcycle endorsement.

Maryland MOTORS is an opportunity for motorcyclists to spend a day riding with police motor officers. These professional motorcyclists will share insights for you to be a safer rider through classroom sessions, slow speed training courses, and group rides.

Please bring your own lunch. Most classes are located near restaurants.

Trikes are more than welcome to participate. They will gain more thorough the instructional classroom portion than the actual observed rides. It is hard for the assessor to evaluate the rider’s skills on a trike, but the rider will still achieve some level of improvement.

No. Anyone who meets the basic requirements, including a proper motorcycle endorsement and legally registered and insured motorcycle.
