ABATE of Florida, Inc. recognizes that rider education is an important part of motorcycle safety. Statistics show that uneducated and inexperienced riders are at greater risk.

Florida law requires a motorcycle endorsement on your driverís license to legally operate a motorcycle. All riders have to pass a written exam as well as a riding test or attend an approved riderís education class to qualify for a motorcycle endorsement. Persons under the age of 21 have to complete a rider training course in order to receive that endorsement.

Many locations offer an experienced rider course as well as a beginner rider course.
