Learn to Ride

New Rider Course

Even if you've never ridden a motorcycle before, don't worry. Harley-Davidson's Riding Academy® Basic Rider Course was specially designed to give you the knowledge and the skills that you need in order to ride with confidence—we'll even supply the bikes.

Upon successful completion of the course, all of our graduates receive a Motorcycle Safety Foundation completion card. This card may help in obtaining insurance discounts. And students from NJ will be eligible to receive a Road Test Waiver*. This waiver, along with the other completion documents, will exempt a graduate of the course from taking the state's road test and it's written permit test- all of the testing that is done at our location will count in place of the state's.  So, there is no need to get a permit before taking the course if you have a valid NJ Driver's License**.  And this makes getting your motorcycle license a one stop transaction at the local MVC.

We hold a class almost every weekend. The four day schedule runs as follows:
 
Friday: 4:00-9:00pm,   Classroom
Saturday: 8:00am-4:00pm,   Range
Sunday: 8:00am-4:00pm,   Range
Monday: 5:30-9:00pm,   Classroom
 
We also schedule a number of weekday classes (highlighted in yellow in our calendar below) for those who have a hard time dedicating nights or weekend days or just prefer the midweek. Weekday classes are scheduled for three consecutive weekdays-- Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. The typical schedule runs as follows:
 
Tuesday: 9:00AM-5:30PM,   Classroom
Wedesdany: 9:00AM-5:00PM,   Range
Thursday: 9:00AM-5:00PM,   Range
 
Upon request, we may also be able set apart entire classes for small groups.

For more information, please email, or call our Rider Education Department at (856) 456-4141      

 *Waiver available only to NJ Residents possessing a valid NJ auto license.
**If you do not have a valid driver's license, you must have a validated permit in order to take the course. 
Note: You must add a motorcycle endorsement to your license before you begin riding after completing the course.
 
With open enrollment, classes are continuously filling.
