To thank the millions of people who have courageously defended our country, guarded our safety, and helped protect everyone’s personal freedom to ride, Harley-Davidson is offering a free Harley-Davidson® Riding Academy New Rider Course for all current and former U.S. military personnel and first responders (law enforcement, fire, and EMS). You can register now and sign up to take an eligible course January 1, 2016 – December 31, 2016.*

In addition to the Harley-Davidson® Riding Academy offer, there is an alternate offer available. With this alternate offer, qualified participants will be eligible to receive a Harley-Davidson™ Gift Card in an amount equal to the value of a course offered at an authorized Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) or other state accredited riding school, upon proof of completion of a basic motorcycle riding course and a receipt.

To take advantage of either offer, fill out the form below. After it’s submitted, you’ll be given next steps on how to signup for a course. All classes must be completed between January 1, 2016 and December 31, 2016. Dealer participation may vary, class availability subject to limitation and available on first-come, first-served basis.

Note: A credit card may be requested to hold a space in the Riding Academy class upon registration. If you are not able to attend the class and do not call ahead to cancel or reschedule, you may be charged for the full cost of the course.
