We love this. Military members are required by Department of Defense regulations to get motorcycle training. They have to take the initial BRC and within a year take the advanced BRCII or Sport Bike classes with a renewal requirement of every 3 years.

Unfortunately in some states the military training program is not accepted for these military personnel to get they licenses. I’m looking at you Maryland. Harley Davidson offering this program is a huge benefit to our military members and to our veterans. If you have never taken a training class I highly recommend it, you can always learn something and the benefit of riding your motorcycle on a closed course in a safe environment can make all the difference in your abilities.

Details:
