Police Motorcycle Training

Harley-Davidson and TEEX have teamed up to offer a new suite of courses for police motorcycle training. Training is a mixture of classroom instruction and drive-track course work. TEEX provides the curriculum and delivery of the course, while Harley-Davidson provides the motorcycles and servicing on-site. This allows a greater degree of confidence that the participant will complete the training in its entirety.

At this time, the program offers the following training courses in Texas as well as other locations across the country:

  • Basic Operator (80 hours): Participants orient to the terminology, driving skills, and liability issues that relate to the operation of a police motorcycle. This training enhances an officer’s ability to operate a police motorcycle in a variety of situations by teaching personal and vehicle control limitations.
  • Advanced Operator (24 hours): To further reduce agency liability this course is designed to train officers for higher speed operations. It expands on several techniques learned in the Basic Operator course, such as curves, to enhance officer survival safety skills.
  • Instructor Certification (120 hours): Instructor candidates learn skills to successfully guide participants in the facilitation of the Basic Police Motorcycle Operator course. Upon completion, instructor candidates are certified to customize and deliver a Basic Police Operator course to their own agency for five years.
  • Instructor Transitional Certification (24 hours): Offered to instructors previously certified as a Police Motorcycle Instructor by a training provider other than Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service (TEEX). Upon completion, instructor candidates are certified to customize and deliver a Basic Police Operator course to their own agency for five years.

Civilian Motorcycle Training

Texas needs more people who can teach aspiring motorcyclists. The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) and TEEX have teamed up to offer motorcycle instructor preparation courses throughout Texas. Upon successful completion of the Motorcycle Safety Foundation RiderCoach Preparation Course, the instructor candidate must obtain a Texas Motorcycle Instructors License from TDLR.
