Motorcycle Awareness Education
Chapter boasts one of the most active Motorcycle Awareness Programs in
the state. SE Portland Chapter members voluntarily attend drivers' education
classes to help raise the motoring public's basic motorcycle awareness.
Typically these classes are offered to high school drivers' ed classes
but we also look forward to the opportunity of working with Tri-Met drivers,
the AARP's 55 Alive program, and anywhere else where we have the opportunity
to talk to people about saving lives.
This free class runs about 45 minutes in length and has a video presentation as part of the class. If you would like us to come and talk to your group, contact us. The Chapter members who volunteer to teach this class have made the roads in Oregon safer for motorcycle riders.This generous contribution to our community has been enthusiastically acknowledged wherever we teach this class.
Oregon law requires you to successfully complete an approved TEAM OREGON basic course before you apply for a motorcycle endorsement. Visit the TEAM OREGON website and sign up for a rider skills /safety course today and become a better rider.
