A motorcycle safety course could save your life

Staying safe on a motorcycle requires a combination of skill and experience. While some people choose to develop their skills on the road, it is not the ideal place. Whether you are a new rider or getting back in the saddle after a several years, a motorcycle safety course could be the difference between walking away from an accident and never getting on a bike again.

Motorcycle riders face a greater risk of accidents and injuries versus drivers tucked safely in the confines of their cars. A bad pothole could mean a blown tire or loss of control. A distracted driver could easily cross into your path without ever realizing you were there.

The hazards of riding a motorcycle are limitless. The best way to avoid these dangers is to be prepared for them. However, no matter how experienced or skilled you are, it is not always possible to avoid an accident. When this happens, your best option is to contact a local Ocala attorney for help recovering medical expenses and other damages. Read further for some of the benefits of a motorcycle safety course.

Benefits for beginners

You can learn lifelong skills from a professional instructor. These courses will provide you with practical experience for everything covered in your motorcycle manual. This includes passing, handling curves and even riding in a group.

Once you complete an approved motorcycle course, your local Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) may waive your knowledge and road tests when you apply for your motorcycle license. In addition, you may also qualify for a discount on your insurance premiums.

Benefits for experienced riders

If you are an advanced rider, a motorcycle safety course is beneficial for you as well. There are classes specifically designed for advanced riders where you can improve your riding skills and increase your confidence. By taking a safety course, you also might qualify for insurance and product discounts. Furthermore, some manufacturers offer class reimbursements.

Scooter safety

If a scooter is more your speed, many urban areas have started offering classes specifically for your preferred mode of transportation. These courses are usually a half-day and will help you learn riding skills that are vital for cruising in city traffic.

Learning or enhancing the skills you need to stay safe on the road can make a major difference in avoiding an accident. Unfortunately, it is not always possible to avoid careless drivers. If you or someone you love has been injured in a motorcycle accident with a negligent driver, it is important to understand your rights and options in the Sunshine State.
