The course will be offered on the following dates: June 7 through June 9; June 14 through June 16; June 28 through June 30; July 5 through July 7; July 12 through July 14; July 19 through July 21; July 26 through July 28; Aug. 2 through Aug. 4; Aug. 9 through Aug. 11; Aug. 16 through Aug. 18; Sept. 6 through Sept. 8; Sept. 13 through Sept. 15; Sept. 20 through Sept. 22; Sept. 27 through Sept. 29; Oct. 4 through Oct. 6; Oct. 18 through Oct. 20; and Oct. 25 through Oct. 27.

Motorcycles, helmets and materials are provided to class participants. The fee for the course is $225.

Participants who successfully complete the course are allowed to by-pass the range-riding portion of the Missouri Department of Revenue license examination. The written and skills evaluation will still be required.
