PAMSP (PennDOT’s Motorcycle Safety Program) Is Looking For A Few Good Motorcycle Instructors – Men and Women!

By Bobbie Carlson
Teaching others to ride a motorcycle is one of the most rewarding experiences that you, as a motorcyclist, can have. To know that you’ve helped others get started safely and confidently is a good feeling. To qualify, first and foremost, you must be a motorcyclist yourself. You must be at least 18 years old with a Class M License. You must operate a motorcycle on a routine basis and have at least two years of riding experience. You must pass a seven-day training class that prepares you to teach in the classroom and on the range. Along with learning how to teach others to ride, your riding skills will improve. You will become part of an elite group of motorcyclists who work together to keep Pennsylvania motorcycle riders safe on the road. You’ll get together annually to improve your classroom teaching, your demonstration riding, and your coaching skills with fun events like track riding and gymkhana riding. Teaching people to ride a motorcycle is a very responsible position, but also very rewarding. And, it pays well for a part-time job. The classes you will be teaching are primarily on the weekend, but more and more sites are adding classes during the week. You can choose when you want to work. To qualify, you must have no criminal history and a good driving record. Prior teaching experience is a bonus, but not necessary. You must have good communication and customer service skills and the ability to speak in front of a group.
