Online Registration and Stand-by
Classroom and range sites, the dates at each site, the course number and available openings are listed.

After the credit card payment is confirmed, the system’s [valid payment response is confirmation of your space in the class.] **This response should be printed before exiting the Registration Page.**
No-shows and Stand-bys
When someone doesn't show up for a class, the RiderCoach will have a random drawing for that vacancy. The drawing takes place at the site on Friday night at 6 p.m. (6:30 p.m. in Houghton). To be eligible for the random drawing your name must be on the course stand-by list, have a signed waiver, and be present prior to the 6 p.m. Friday night drawing (6:30 p.m. in Houghton). Those selected are required to pay the $25 course fee at the time of drawing (only checks, please, made payable to Northern Michigan University).
Students must be on time and attend all class and riding sessions, pass a written exam and riding skills test in order to successfully complete the course. Upon successful completion, you will receive a completion certificate (Michigan SOS401 or Wisconsin MV3575). This certificate permits riders to waive the skills portion of the Secretary of State's endorsement test. This completion certificate is valid for one year from the date of class completion.
Students should sign in 15 minutes before the class starting time. Students arriving after the class starts will forfeit their slot in the class. Anyone arriving without a signed Waiver of Liability will not be admitted to the class or refunded the $25 fee. Riders under 18 years of age must have the waiver signed by a parent or guardian. Protective clothing is required for range hours, only DOT or Snell approved helmets may be used.
Dismissal or incomplete
During the weekend program, if a student doesn't show up or decides not to complete the class for any reason, they may withdraw but the $25 fee is non-refundable and non-transferable. A student may be dismissed from the class if, in the judgement of the instructor, they present a personal hazard, or a hazard to other students or instructors. The instructor's decision is final, and the course fee is non-refundable. In order to participate in another session, you must register and pay for the new session.
