Enrollment steps

  1. Find a course that is open for enrollment and click the course's "Register" button.
  2. Complete the on-screen forms to hold a seat in the course, print out the confirmation page and mail it with your $20  registration deposit (for all but Instructor courses, for which the deposit is $125).
  3. Receive e-mail confirmation from the  Motorcycle Rider Program  that your registration has been finalized.
  4. Meet the Attendance Requirements.

To find a course, click the Select a Course link and use the map or list of sites to select a course site. The page will then display all courses being offered at the site. If there is a confirmed or standby seat available in the course, a "Register" button will appear for that course. Click the button for the course you desire to start the registration process.

Warning! You can register for only one course. During peak enrollment times, courses fill quickly. A course may fill while you're looking at a page. If this happens, you will be able to return to the course selection page to select a different course.

To hold a seat, you will be asked to provide information about yourself, including your driver's license. The driver's license number you use to register for a course MUST be the same you present on the day of the course. If it isn't, you will NOT be allowed to attend the course. If you haven't already registered for a course and you provide all required information, the course enrollment will be saved for you for a period of 14  business days. You must submit a printed copy of the registration confirmation (from either the web display or the e-mail that will be sent to you) AND a valid registration deposit within that period or your enrollment will be abandoned.

Important: Be sure to complete your on-line forms in a timely manner. To make sure that everyone has a fair chance to get a course, incomplete registrations will be released 10 minutes after a seat is first put on hold.

E-mail confirmation: You must provide a valid e-mail address when you register for a course. Be sure to use an e-mail account that will be valid throughout the training season and one that you check on a regular basis. This e-mail account will be used to send your initial registration notification and all subsequent notifications, reminders and course announcements, as needed. If you don't have an e-mail account, you can obtain a free account from several sources. Here's a review that lists 12 free e-mail accounts. The Yahoo free e-mail service is very popular and easy to use. Click here for simple instructions.

Registration Deposit: Each student's completed registration must be accompanied by a valid  $20  (per person) refundable registration deposit made payable to the University of Illinois. A separate check or money order of  $20  must accompany each registration. When payments are combined and one application is rejected, all will be rejected. Send materials/payment to: Motorcycle Rider Program 4 Gerty Dr. Champaign IL 61820.

Cancellations and Refunds

Office staff cannot transfer you from one course to another. If you have a pending or approved seat (confirmed or standby) in a course and find you cannot attend, please visit the Cancel Registration Page and follow the instructions provided. You will then be able to use this online registration site to try to reschedule.

You may cancel your registration in a course through 48 hours AFTER the LAST day of the course. This will allow you to indicate what should be done with your deposit. If you do not show up for a course and fail to cancel in time, your deposit will be forfeited.

STANDBY students who are present for the first class session but do not get into class due to class size limitations, must cancel online and request a refund or cancel online and hold deposit for re-registration immediately. Once you have cancelled you may go back online and re-register.

The registration deposit cannot be transferred between Regional Training centers, between individuals, or from one training season to another.

Refunds are processed ONLY to the student enrolled and will be issued from the University of Illinois. Please allow 8 weeks for processing.

Warning! If you submit a check and it is returned to us for insufficient funds, your registration will be canceled.
