The Road America Motorcycle School is designed specifically to
maximize the fun and minimize the risk of motorcycling. With a
pass rate of over 96%, our success rate
is encouraging. However, on occasion, any participant
may have an “off day.” With that in mind, we have created the
Customer Satisfaction Promise. In the event a participant fails
any one of our MSF-designated courses, they will be allowed to
return to retake the full class at a later date for a minimal
rescheduling fee of $100.
Minors participating in the course MUST have a parent’s or legal
guardian’s signature on our Waiver & Indemnification
Form. You can take care of this in advance by having it
signed by the parent or legal guardian AND
NOTARIZED before the class, or a parent or legal
guardian MUST be present at the beginning of the first day of
class to sign the waiver in the presence of a Road America staff
member. No minors will be allowed to participate without
the properly completed and signed waiver.
