What is House Bill 2459, and why is it important to Soldiers stationed in the state of Kansas? House Bill 2459 is good news for military motorcycle riders because it allows Military motorcycle riders, who have completed prior motorcycle safety training, in accordance with Department of Defense Instruction 6055.04 (DoDI 6055.04), to obtain a class M (motorcycle) license without a written and driving test!

Kansas House Bill 2459 allows Soldiers who have taken an approved Motorcycle Safety Foundation Course (MSF) in any state, to obtain a class M license in the state of Kansas. The bill states, Military motorcycle riders "who have completed prior motorcycle safety training in accordance with department of defense instruction 6055.04 (DoDI 6055.04) are not required to complete further written and driving testing."

DoDI 6055.4, para 4f(1)(c) states, "Include an appropriate Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) course or DUSD(I&E) endorsed, State-approved, curriculum for motorcycle operator's safety training. Provide certified or licensed rider coaches and include hands-on training, a riding skills evaluation, and a knowledge-based evaluation. Accept the completion card of any MSF course or DUSD(I&E)-endorsed course that includes written and riding evaluations as proof of successful completion of the required training."

Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) courses are offered off post at a cost of approximately $230.00, but the USAG Safety Office, in accordance with DoDI 6055.4, provides approved Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) courses to all Soldiers at no charge. These courses are designed to teach both new and experienced riders proper techniques for safe operation of motorcycles, as well as a driver skill and written test. The Basic Rider Course (BRC I) is the required foundational course for all Soldiers regardless of experience level. To enroll in any Motorcycle Safety Foundation course, please contact USAG Safety Office, 239-3391 for available course dates, enrollment information and verification of valid MSF certificate.

Military motorcyclist must still submit, with their application, proof of citizenship and residency in the state of Kansas. A U.S. Military ID - not expired (active duty, dependent, retired, reserve or National Guard) or a U.S. Military Common Access Card (CAC) with photo, DOB, name and branch of service, are acceptable documents of proof of citizenship. For proof of residency, check the Kansas Department of Revenue, http://www.ksrevenue.org/dmvproof.html, for a list of acceptable documents.

Soldiers are not required to pay the class M permit fee, $9.00 - $15.00 depending on how many years they request, or the associated fee to take the written test, $1.50, but are required to pay all other applicable fees for a class M license.

House Bill 2459 becomes law effective, July 1, 2012. For more information, contact the USAG Safety Office, (785) 239-3391.
