Are you a new rider who is worried about passing the Virginia motorcycle operator license test? How about a seasoned rider who would like to ensure that your driving skills are the best they can be?
No matter what type of biker you are, or where you are in the state, there is a Virginia motorcycle safety course for you. Courses are generally offered though community colleges and other institutions. While their prices can vary, most classes cost around $100.
While you may balk at the price, please consider the cost of a motorcycle accident in Virginia. Repairing or replacing your bike, along with the cost of a trip to the hospital can cost you tens of thousands of dollars. When considering this, the price of a safety course is next to nothing.
On top of that, motorcyclists who take a safety course may qualify for up to a 10 percent motorcycle insurance discount.

What you learn in your class will vary depending upon which course you take.
