For those classes conducted between October 1st and March 15th, permits will be issued on or about April 1st to coincide with the start of the riding season.

Thanks, Bill - the class was great - broader in scope than anything I'd expected and I find myself looking at cyclists differently now -- noticing where they're riding, wondering what they're thinking/scoping, etc.

Street Smart Workshop
Once a motorcyclist has the basic skills to operate their vehicle, they need to interact with other traffic.  Having good perceptive skills means to see and interpret traffic situations accurately.  This workshop focuses on improving your perceptive abilities while riding in traffic in order to help you avoid situations before or as they develop and help keep you out of trouble.  Individual and group activities plus participant workbook included. We share the road so car drivers are welcome too!

Registration restricted to those who already hold a valid VT drivers license.
Cost: $20   Limit: 24

Contact us for group rate if your group would like to host one of our workshops.

Seasoned Rider Workshop
Geared towards the active, licensed rider, this workshop is a great way to tune up for spring. Designed to acquaint participants with the general effects of aging on the skills needed to ride safely and encourage active steps to become an increasingly safer and more responsible motorcyclist.  The workshop is designed as an interactive event with a focus on involvement by the participants in group activities and discussions.   While the workshop is designed for motorcyclists, car drivers can benefit from the class too!  

Registration restricted to those who already hold a valid VT drivers license.
Cost: $20   Limit: 24
