The course will be held at the CLEET training center at 2401 Egypt Road. The course will begin at 8:45 a.m. and go till 3 p.m. This is a six-hour course consisting of both classroom and riding instruction.

The course is beneficial to riders of all skill levels. The course is free of charge to participants. The course has been recognized by most insurance carriers for a discount. The course is taught on a closed course, so an “M” endorsement is not required to attend this class. 

The course is funded by a grant from the Oklahoma Highway Safety Office.
