Participant Information

    MINIMUM AGE REQUIREMENT
  • Participants MUST be at least 16 years of age on the date of the class. Parents/guardians of 16 and 17 year old KY residents are required to contact the Site Provider prior to the start of class to sign a Course Waiver Form.


    ABILITY TO BALANCE
  • Participants MUST be able to balance a bicycle. Sounds strange? Not really. They are both two-wheeled vehicles that must be balanced by the rider.


    FULL RIDING GEAR
    Full protective riding gear is required for all courses. We do not expect students to visit a motorcycle shop to get true "motorcycle gear" but we do require some basics. You will be wearing this protective gear anytime you are seated on the motorcycle. Make sure its comfortable as well as protective. Full gear includes head to toe coverage:
  • DOT APPROVED HELMET: If you do not have a helmet, we will provide one for you. If you would like to use your own helmet, show the RiderCoach the helmet you'd like to use. We'll check to see if it meets these requirements: is DOT approved, is at least a three quarter or full faced type.
  • EYE PROTECTION: During course exercises, this requirement can be met by wearing a lowered helmet visor, sunglasses, prescription glasses, safety glasses or goggles. While these may not the best choices for street riding, they meet the need to protect your eyes during riding exercises.
  • FULL-FINGERED GLOVES: Gloves must cover your fingertips. Students have used gardening gloves, leather gloves or Mechanic gloves for riding exercises. Gloves not only protect your hands but give you a better grip on the controls.
  • LONG SLEEVES: It's okay to wear a short-sleeved shirt as long as you bring a long sleeved jacket to put on while riding the exercises.
  • LONG PANTS: Pants should be made of sturdy material with no tears.
  • OVER THE ANKLE FOOTWEAR: Touch your ankle bone with your finger. Any footwear that covers that bone is permissible. The best motorcycle footwear has a nonslip bottom without heels.
