Vermont Rider Education Program

Welcome

The Vermont DMV Rider Education Program is conducting classes during the 2021 motorcycle training season.

Motorcycle riding in Vermont is a popular form of recreation and transportation for thousands of residents throughout the Green Mountain State. The Vermont Rider Education Program (VREP) was established in 1990 to offer motorcycle rider training to anyone who wishes to enjoy the sport of motorcycling. The Program offers instructional courses to make your motorcycling safer and more enjoyable.

 

  • This two-wheeled motorcycle training course is for novice riders and those with limited riding experience, as well as riders who haven't ridden for a few years. The course teaches the basic skills needed to operate a two-wheeled motorcycle in traffic. Training includes a three hour online Basic eCourse, five hours of classroom activities and 10 hours of on-motorcycle riding exercises. Motorcycles are provided to individuals attending this course.

    Some of the training locations have a limited number of scooters available for those individuals that have made the decision to ride a scooter. The scooters have an automatic transmission so shifting is not required. If you decide to take a course using a scooter you will need to check the box next to “I wish to take the course using a Program Scooter”. If that option is not offered then a scooter is not available for the course you have selected.
