CWCE Motorcycle Range Policy

POLICY TITLE: CWCE Motorcycle Range

POLICY NUMBER: 6.5.4

EFFECTIVE: April 2013


A. BACKGROUND:

The basic rider’s course provides safety education and training that is compulsory for every RI motorcyclist-the only such state requirement in the nation. CCRI has purchased motorcycles, built special housing for them, and has incorporated the national Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) standards into the curriculum. Funding for the program is provided from student tuition and from fees assessed by the Registry of Motor Vehicles. Classes run from March to November (weather permitting). CCRI also offers advanced rider courses for licenses riders.

B. POLICY STATEMENT:      

All students must wear the following personal items for all on-motorcycle instruction:

  1. Helmet and eye protection.
  2. Over-the-ankle, sturdy footwear
  3. Long non-flare denim pants or material of equivalent or better durability.
  4. Long-sleeved shirt or jacket.
  5. Full-fingered gloves, preferably leather.

Helmets must be manufactured to meet Department of Transportation (DOT) standards. (adapted from the Motorcycle Safety Foundation, RiderCoach Guide).

Failure to bring the appropriate items/gear to the range, failure to appear without notice and/or failure to arrive on time will result in your having to reschedule and pay a range rescheduling fee.

No one will be tested without proper and valid identification - driver's license.

Students participating in advanced training for licensed riders must also provide proof of insurance.  Students’ motorcycles may be subject to a safety inspection, and students are responsible for any damage to their motorcycle or equipment as a result of their participation in these courses.

C. PROCEDURES:

  1. Failure to bring the appropriate items/gear to the range, failure to appear without notice and/or failure to arrive on time will result in your having to reschedule and pay a range rescheduling fee.
  2. Students should contact a CWCE staff member for information on rescheduling and the fees associated with it.

D. POLICY APPLIES TO:

This applies to students registered for any Motorcycle Training Course.

E. RESPONSIBLE DEPARTMENT:

The Center for Workforce and Community Education at the Community College of Rhode Island is the institution’s office responsible for coordinating motorcycle safety training courses.
