Q:Why do I need to take the eCourse?
A:Short answer: The Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) changed its curriculum. The eCourse is part of this new change.

Long Answer: The State of Wisconsin has adopted the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) program for motorcycle licensing. All of the motorcycle safety schools that can issue an “M” endorsement must comply with the MSF rules. In the last year all of the Motorcycle Training Schools have been re-certified with this new curriculum. This program has been overhauled to make the training experience easier and allow for the student to learn the skills to be a safe rider on the streets.

This eCourse allows a student to learn their motorcycle classroom skills at their own pace before their class starts. This will allow the student to be prepared for the curriculum that is presented in the class and further their skills at a faster pace.For more information on MSF go to their site at: http://www.msf-usa.org/AboutMSF.aspx
