Can I use my own helmet?

Yes, 3/4 or full-face helmets meeting Department of Transportation (DOT) standards for motorcycle helmets can be used during a course. A motorcycle helmet meeting these requirements will have a DOT sticker on it. If you do not have a proper helmet the program will have one available for you to use during the course.

Do I have to enroll in a course or do I just show up on a scheduled date?

It is best to enroll in a Vermont Rider Education Program course to be guaranteed an opening in the course you wish to attend. Many courses fill quickly and once full additional students cannot be added to the course. You can show up for a scheduled course and attempt to attend on a standby basis. Standbys are added to a course only when there is an available opening and are taken on a first come first served basis. Openings may be available if a course does not have the maximum number of allowed students scheduled to attend or if a scheduled student fails to show for a course.
