WASHINGTON (Feb. 18, 2015)-Naval District Washington's (NDW) safety office will offer Sailors, drilling reservists, retirees and dependents the Navy motorcycle safety course starting March 16.

Eligible riders can sign up online at “www.navymotorcyclerider.com” and click on the enroll link. Once inside the website, members would have to select Traffic Safety and Naval District Washington on the region drop down menu, and select the month they would like to sign up for a class.

"This is a great course aimed to make our Sailors more aware of the dangers while riding a motorcycle," said Barbara Vanderberg, NDW regional safety program director.

The courses will be offered at Naval Air Station Patuxent River, Naval Support Facility Dahlgren and Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling starting in March and continuing throughout November 2015.

Vandenberg added that the courses offered will be for different level of riders: the new riders, the experienced riders, the advance riders, and for those who are sports bike riders.

She also said that the courses offered will be for different level of riders: the new riders, the experienced riders, the advance riders, and for those who are sports bike riders.

“I would like to encourage Sailors to sign up for these courses, because there's a new contract in place and we won't have the same problems that we had in the past with our old contractor," said Vanderberg. "There is also a maximum of six people who can sign up per class and a minimum of four has to be signed up two days before the class, military members will have priority over other riders which will be placed on standby in case somebody cancels at the last minute or the class is not full by the date set to start." 

Active duty Sailors and drilling reservists must sign up using the website only, retirees and dependents shall call their closest safety office for more information.
