PennDOT motorcycle training available for 2018 riding season

From staff reports

The warmer weather will bring an influx of motorcyclists to Pennsylvania roadways, and PennDOT is recommending that riders reduce the chances of being involved in a crash by taking advantage of a revamped line of free training through the Pennsylvania Motorcycle Safety Program.

Developed by PennDOT’s new program coordinator, Total Control Training Inc., the safety program offers four revamped training syllabuses and one new clinic tailored not just to hone riders’ knowledge but to test their ability to physically manipulate a motorcycle properly.

All training clinics are conducted under the supervision of certified instructors at one of numerous riding ranges throughout the state. The training is free for Pennsylvania residents with a motorcycle license or permit.

The clinics are offered for beginner, intermediate and advanced riders.

For more information or to enroll in a clinic, visit or call (800) 845-9533.
