Welcome to the Virginia Motorcycle Rider Training Program! How many people do you know who are lucky enough to love what they do? Well we know over 350 here in Virginia. And we'd like you to become one of them and join our family of DMV approved RiderCoaches.  The Virginia Rider Training Program admits students of any gender, race, color, and national origin.

Our instructors, also known as RiderCoaches, are the backbone of the motorcycle training courses. By completing an intensive preparation course, you can be on your way to giving back to the community and the hobby you enjoy the most...riding motorcycles!

The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) Virginia Rider Training Program (VRTP) is always looking for people with "people skills" to coach others and have a positive influence on the driving habits of beginner and experienced riders. The skills gained in these classes help prevent motorcycle crashes and make the roads safer for everyone.

We invite you to learn more about our program and begin your journey as a Instructor.
