The Arizona Motorcycle Safety and Awareness Foundation (AMSAF) is starting off 2016 with a HUGE announcement. Rider training scholarships are now available to all residents of Arizona! The county where you live determines WHEN you can apply for the scholarship. A simple $100 donation gets the applicant access to the Basic RiderCourse ($300 value). The course enables participants to learn how to ride and get their motorcycle license without testing at Arizona Motor Vehicles Department (MVD).

The funding comes from the Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety (AZGOHS) and from the Arizona Motorcycle Safety Advisory Council (AMSAC). A mix of Federal and State grant funds directed to AMSAF make this all possible. It is a pilot program that will be analyzed heavily to see if this scholarship model could be rolled out on a national level.
This program would not have come to fruition if it weren’t for the efforts of AMSAF Chairman Mick Degn and Director of AZGOHS Alberto Gutier. The motorcycling community will be greatly improved thanks to the efforts of these visionary individuals.
If you know someone who as been riding without a motorcycle endorsement or is looking to ride a motorcycle legally on the roadway, obtaining training is necessary first step. The AMSAF rider training scholarship is the most cost-effective way to obtain that training.
