ST. PETERSBURG - Suncoast Safety Council created the Ride Safe Motorcycle Training program in 2008 to comply with the motorcycle endorsement law enacted the same year. The law requires all riders in the state of Florida to successfully complete the MSF Basic RiderCourse to obtain a motorcycle endorsement on their Florida License.

The course was developed to train and educate both novice and experienced motorcyclists and scooter riders in the physical and mental skills necessary for safe vehicle operation, and to reduce the number of motorcycle and scooter related crashes and injuries on Florida’s roads and highways.

As of Feb. 1, Ride Safe Motorcycle Training’s range is located at Tyrone Square Mall. Two day classes are available on weekends and weekdays. To register, visit www.RideSafeNow.org, call 373-7233 or visit a Suncoast Safety Council office in Clearwater or St. Petersburg. The classroom portion of the motorcycle training will be held in Clearwater and the range will be located at Tyrone Square Mall (next to Tires Plus).

Suncoast Safety Council offices are located as follows:

• Motorcycle Classroom Address – 1145 Court St.. Clearwater

• Motorcycle Range Address – 2800 Tyrone Blvd. North, St. Petersburg

Ride Safe Motorcycle Training provides a safe, fun and professional learning environment where residents can get the motorcycle training needed to obtain a Florida motorcycle license or enhance riding skills.

This 15-hour course (five hours of classroom training plus 10 hours of riding/practical training) satisfies all Florida motorcycle and scooter license requirements. The professional team of Motorcycle Safety Foundation Rider-Coaches help riders gain the skills needed to ride with confidence.

Ride Safe Motorcycle Training provides bikes (motorcycles and scooters) and DOT-approved helmets for training. All students must have a valid driver’s license or learner’s permit to enroll. For the riding portion of the class, students need long-sleeve shirt or jacket, denim jeans or heavy pants, over-the-ankle boots, full-fingered gloves and shatter resistant sunglasses or safety glasses.
