Civilian Motorcycle School

In an effort to make city streets and highways safer for all, the Edmond Police Department has initiated and implemented a motorcycle safety course designed to teach the motorcycle operator how to survive in traffic. The course curriculum was developed by the Edmond Police Department and approved by the Oklahoma Highway Safety Office and the Department of Public Safety.
As a result, a grant of $150,000 was awarded to the City of Edmond for the acquisition of a mobile classroom and funds for instructor salaries to make the Civilian Motorcycle Survival Course a statewide effort.

Lesson Plan

The lesson plan for this 6-hour course is based upon skills utilized by the Police Motorcycle Unit and instructed by Edmond Police Department motorcycle officers. Police Chief JD Younger enthusiastically supports the program, not only for its contribution to motorcycle safety, but it’s invaluable benefit to our community.

A testimonial from a former student commented that he had "been riding for approximately thirty years and was the beneficiary of twenty years of military training" and he had "never received as much practical and pertinent information as he had received in this six hour course."

Safety Course Requirements:

  • You have to ride your own motorcycle
  • The motorcycle cannot be smaller than a 250cc or any type of scooter or three wheeler
  • You must wear an approved DOT helmet
  • Your gloves must have fingers
  • You must wear boots that cover ankles and a long sleeve shirt
  • You need proof of liability insurance
