Motorcycle Safety Training Program


Motorcycle Safety Training Program Logo


On Friday, June 16, 2017, Harper College was informed by the State of Illinois that unless a state budget, including funding for the Motorcycle Safety Program, is passed and signed by the governor by the end of the day on June 30, we will be unable to offer classes on or after July 1. Therefore, all motorcycle classes scheduled to start on or after Saturday, July 1, 2017, may be canceled until there is a budget and appropriation bill passed by the legislature and signed by the Governor.


  • In anticipation of having to shut down the program we have suspended registration in scheduled classes. At present we are not accepting any new registrations.

  • Our understanding is that state funding for the motorcycle safety training program may be resumed at some future time, even within the coming weeks or months. So, while we have stopped taking motorcycle class registrations, we will retain existing registration information to facilitate re-opening the program when the budget issues are resolved. Once this happens, we will restart the program and registration as soon as possible.

  • Classes which start on or before June 30 will run even if the completion date is in July, but we will be taking no further enrollments in these classes effective immediately.

  • If your class has been canceled, we will automatically process a refund of your deposit. You will not need to initiate the refund. Please understand that there will be a high volume of registration refunds that may take several weeks to process.

  • If your class is canceled, we will not be able to reinstate it later because we schedule our training ranges to their full capacity. You will have to enroll in another class after the program has been reinstated.

  • Make sure to return to this page for updates. If you are currently enrolled in an affected class, you will receive email updates as the scheduled start date of your class approaches.

  • Because of the large number of students impacted by this situation, we are not able to respond to phone calls about the motorcycle program. Please check this page for the most current information. If you have a question that is not answered here, email us at: patience during this difficult time is appreciated.
