Frequently Asked Questions

Commonly asked questions about the JCCC Motorcycle Training Courses.

Missouri residents are welcome to take the courses but they will want to contact their local DMV to see if the completion card will waive the state requirement of a driving skills test.

Yes. Participants must be available to attend all of the sessions in a training during the same week, and you must attend all sessions shown for the section to registered for to successfully complete the class.

Motorcycle training courses are open to those 15 years of age or older who have a valid driver's license or learner's permit.   

No, you do not have to have any prior motorcycle experience. However, you will need to be able to ride and balance on a two-wheel bicycle.

Students must be capable of handling a motorcycle, have balance and coordination, and handle outdoor exposure for several hours at a time.
