Motorcycle Safety Training
Harper College Motorcycle Safety Program
05/18/2022 UPDATE - Harper College Motorcycle Safety Classes to Discontinue after June 30, 2022
Harper College has made the difficult decision to stop offering Motorcycle Safety classes at all training sites as of June 30. The college has been unable to secure the level of insurance necessary to continue offering these classes. This will affect training at the following locations:
- Chicago Heights
- Lake Villa
- Rockford North
- Rockford South
While we are actively engaging with our elected officials to identify a long-term solution to the issue, currently we have examined all available options and determined the liability and associated risks outweigh the available insurance coverage.
The program will operate normally until the final classes take place June 30. Staff will continue to process course paperwork so that every student who successfully completes a class receives a completion card. These cards will be honored by the Illinois Secretary of State’s office.
Harper College and the Illinois Department of Transportation hold the highest regard for the Motorcycle Safety Program staff, RiderCoaches and aides, and the work they have done on behalf of students, our community, and our state.
We appreciate your understanding and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions. You may also explore options for safety classes in other parts of Illinois by visiting IDOT’s Cycle Rider Safety Training Program.
06/27/2022 Update - Training courses for this season are now concluded. Please check back for updates regarding the future of the program.
Refund requests: When you complete your class, you may request a refund of your $20 deposit or you may choose to forfeit your deposit and help make it possible for the program to improve or purchase new equipment. Click THIS link to submit a refund request form.
Completion Card Information
Course completion cards can take up to four weeks to process and mail out and are valid as a testing waiver with the Illinois Secretary of State's office for up to one year from the original date of issue (last day of your class). Course completion cards are not a license to ride, you must go to your local Secretary of State's office to have the motorcycle classification added to your driver's license.
Please see this document (updated 07/18/22) for completion card mailing date information.
Make every day count. Discover your passions. Advance your career. Play and learn.
I started a new job as a graphic and web designer and the digital badge I got was part of the reason they chose to hire me. I couldn't have done it without you!
David is a truly amazing teacher who makes learning the harmonica lots of fun. His enthusiasm is contagious and he has a heart of gold.
The Writing Salon was so much more than a writing class. The experience was energetic, enthusiastic and supportive. I highly recommend this class for anyone who wants to develop their skills as a writer!
As always, your Spanish classes are packed with new information about the language. You make it easy to learn Spanish and keep it very interesting. Thank you!
I have participated in many LLI classes over the past two years. Gary is a terrific discussion facilitator and brings excellent background knowledge to our classes. I'm learning so much about Foreign Policy.
Just want to let you know how much I enjoyed your class. Hope you will have more classes since I am a novice in the wine area and am anxious to learn.
