The Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) sponsors the Massachusetts Rider Education Program (MREP) to cut risks and maximize the fun of motorcycling. MREP's mission is to reduce the number of motorcycle-related accidents. It does this by providing access to motorcycle training courses for motorcycle riders.
MREP provides quality rider education and training to both novice and experienced motorcycle riders. The program is designed to assist riders of all levels and to promote the safe operation of motorcycles. The curriculum used in these programs was developed by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation. There are 2 courses offered through MREP:
Only the basic rider course is required in order to obtain a Class M driver's license. However, the RMV strongly recommends that you also take the experienced rider course.
The basic rider course consists of:
Students must attend all classroom and on-cycle sessions and pass both a multiple-choice examination and riding skills evaluation to graduate the program.
Junior operators (under 18) are required to complete the basic rider course, in addition to the requirements of a junior operator license.
The benefits of taking a motorcycle safety course are:
Professional introduction to motorcycling through the basic rider course
Sharpen riding skills through the experienced rider course
Get your motorcycle license/endorsement
Save 10% (limited) on your motorcycle insurance
