MSF is excited to embrace digital technology in the form of online education. Our newest offerings represent our continuing commitment to educating motorcyclists and other roadway users in a variety of ways and through multiple channels.


Our digital content includes the MSF Basic eCourse, a 3-hour interactive program intended as a prerequisite for the hands-on Basic RiderCourse but which serves equally well as a stand-alone introduction to motorcycling; four free iTunes U courses which address various aspects of motorcycling theory, skills, tips and strategies; three iBooks, two of which focus on intersections – the area of highest risk between motorcyclists and other roadway users – and one that helps friends and family members begin a dialogue with current and prospective motorcyclists about making good decisions when riding or considering riding; and an iPhone/iPad educational app that uses existing MSF self-paced safety lessons to help current motorcycle owners improve their riding skills in a practice riding area of their choosing.

MSF Basic eCourse

The Motorcycle Safety Foundation Basic eCourse is a highly interactive online program that provides riders of all skill levels with the basics of motorcycling. With integrated graphics, photos and video to help better illustrate the lessons, the $19.99 program allows you to control the pace of your learning.

The Basic eCourse can help you determine whether motorcycling is actually a good personal fit. Although it’s a key component of the Basic RiderCourse, it can be completed as an introductory stand-alone program without enrolling in a hands-on course.
