The Ride to Live motorcycle training program is a free class presented by the Coronado Police Department.  The program’s goal is to provide motorcycle operators with the skills to avoid or minimize collisions while enjoying their ride. Additionally, riders will be educated on some of the common equipment and riding violations encountered within the City of Coronado. The course, taught by certified motor officers, focuses on the same riding techniques used by police motor officers every day. The class is 7 hours of “hands-on” motorcycle training, presented in one day, with lunch provided. If you have a desire to challenge your riding skills and increase your safety on the road, please read further to learn about registering for our course.
