The number of motorcycle training courses offered in Hawaii is expanding, with new classes launching in three of the state’s neighbor islands.
The first site that opened this year is at the University of Hawaii Maui college campus, where monthly classes began Jan. 12, according to MauiNow.com. On Kauai, a training facility was completed in October, and classes there start Jan. 27. A third training site in Hilo on the Big Island is set to be completed in March.
The curriculum of the courses follows the MSF’s Basic Rider Course-Hawaii Edition, which meets the requirements of Hawaii’s Administrative Rules for motorcycle safety education.
The three new courses are the first Motorcycle Safety Foundation-sanctioned courses offered on Hawaii’s neighbor islands — those other than the most populated island of Oahu — since April 2007.
