About This Deal

Motorcycles evolved from bicycles, which evolved from horses, which evolved from dinosaurs disguised as horses. Ride the pinnacle of evolution with today’s Groupon to Motorcycle Safety School, valid at locations in Spring Creek, Brooklyn, College of Staten Island, Harlem River Yards in the Bronx, and Ulster Community College in Stone Ridge. Choose between the following options:

  • For $25, you get a one-hour introduction to motorcycles class (a $50 value).
  • For $32, you get a one-hour private motorcycle lesson (up to a $65 value).

The gear gurus at Motorcycle Safety School instruct budding bikers on how to properly maintain, operate, and cruise on their vehicles. The one-hour introduction to motorcycles class sees each student studying bike basics alongside two peers. Motorcycle controls, proper riding gear, and practicing clutch control are all part of the agenda, which is highlighted by sitting atop a motorcycle to recreate the DVD cover for Easy Rider. During the one-hour private lesson (a $50 value at Stone Ridge, a $65 value at all other locations), students will strap on a provided helmet and helm a Suzuki GZ250 bike as they undergo tutelage from a talented instructor. The lesson focuses on teaching pupils how to turn, stop, maneuver the bike at a slow speed, and replace a flat tire with an oversized glazed doughnut. The instructor caters to each student’s skill level, progressing at a comfortable pace in hopes of building their vehicular confidence and helping them pass certification tests.

Motorcycle Safety School’s instructors give private lessons throughout the week between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m., except at the Staten Island location, which offers lessons on weekends only. Consult the school’s private-lesson FAQ page for additional information and insights, such as how to best utilize the rocket boosters hidden in all modern motorcycles.

About Motorcycle Safety School

At the seven Motorcycle Safety School locations throughout the state, founder Diane Howells leads DMV-certified instructors to teach motorcyclists how to become safe, defensive sharers of the road. Since its establishment in 1999, the Motorcycle Safety Foundation has offered programs suited to every level of rider, from complete beginners, who might start out in an Intro to Motorcycle class, to seasoned road warriors, who might take a refresher course on Defensive Driving. The school's commitment to safety has earned it coverage from such media outlets as the New York Times and the New York Daily News.
