CECT is hiring Motorcycle Training Instructors! 

If you’re an experienced motorcycle rider and want to make additional income, consider becoming a motorcycle training instructor with the Minnesota Department of Public Safety’s Motorcycle Safety Center!

Motorcycle Instructors employed by the MN Motorcycle Safety Center, also referred to as RiderCoaches, earn $36 per hour and have the opportunity to share their passion for motorcycling with diverse Minnesota communities. 

RiderCoach candidates must meet the following requirements: 

  • Be experienced motorcyclists who currently ride a street legal motorcycle and posses a valid motorcycle endorsement. 
  • Be committed to safe riding practices in all aspects of motorcycling. 
  • Successfully complete a 72-hour RiderCoach Preparation Course and 40-50 hours of pre-course work.
