Model National Administrative Standards for State Motorcycle Rider Training Programs

In August 2011 the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) published Model National Standards for Entry-Level Rider Training. The model curriculum standards establish baseline content all novice motorcycle riders should be taught in training programs conducted in the United States. The publication of the Model National Standards for Entry-Level Motorcycle Rider Training alone is not sufficient to achieve the goal of implementing strong rider training programs. Administrative standards provide guidance, benchmarks, and specify activities to help programs achieve and maintain quality programs. Critical factors such as establishing administrative control, instructor qualifications, instructional settings and equipment specifications need equal attention. Therefore, in 2011 NHTSA executed the second phase of this effort to develop model administrative standards for state motorcycle rider training programs to promote quality and consistency among and between State rider training programs.
