Become a Motorcycle Instructor
Instructors are trained based on staffing need statewide. To ensure a newly trained instructor will have a place to teach it is required that all applicants have a Sponsorship Letter from an existing MMSP-Authorized Training Site. A list of sites is available on this website. Sponsorship requires that an individual demonstrate proficiency, reliability, commitment and ethics commensurate with the standards set by the Missouri Motorcycle Safety Program and the training site.LEARN MORE
It's an easy start...
Some sites require anyone seeking sponsorship to first serve as a “Range Aide”. Range Aide duties may be paid or unpaid depending on the training site. “Range Aides” assist Certified Instructors in preparing the range for class, setting up range exercises and other non-instructional duties. Familiarization with exercises, path of travel for each exercise, and observing instructors demonstrating exercises and techniques are all integral parts of the development of an Instructor applicant.
Training typically takes place early in the year to allow newly trained instructors to quickly get into the field and work on their new skills, but applications are accepted year round!LEARN MORE
