In these days of expensive fuel, a motorcycle is an economic alternative to an otherwise expensive commute. To ride a motorcycle on base, however, requires more than just a license. Not sure of the requirements? The NSASP safety department can help. Here are the necessary requirements:
Training – per OPNAVINST 5100.12G, those personnel (military⁄civilian⁄contractor) wishing to ride a motorcycle aboard a military installation must complete one of the following training courses:
The Basic Riders Motorcycle Safety Course (BRC) – A two-day course (attendance on both days required to receive credit) OR
The Experienced Riders Motorcycle Safety Course (ERC) - A one day course
Personal protective gear or PPE – the following is required:
Full-face DOT-approved helmet
Long-sleeved shirt and pants
Full-fingered leather gloves
Brightly-colored clothing for day and reflective vest at night
Eye protection (ANSI approved)
Fully-enclosed sturdy shoes (no flip-flops, sandals, etc.)
All PPE is required to protect you in even the simplest accident, providing protection between you and the road or another vehicle.
