LEARN TO RIDE WITH PUGET SOUND SAFETY CLASSES

Puget Sound Safety offers classes for all skill levels, from beginners to seasoned pros! 

VIEW COURSES

If you take the beginner's course, then buy a new Harley-Davidson® from us within 90 days of course completion, we'll reimburse you for the cost of the course! Just bring in your dated course receipt at time of purchase. 

GET COMFORTABLE BEFORE YOUR CLASS

Make the most of your class by getting in the saddle at Northwest Harley-Davidson® and trying a Jumpstart™ demo. Getting knowledgeable before your class begins will get you on a bike and feeling comfortable faster.

You’ll mount the motorcycle, set your boots on the foot pegs and fire up the engine under the watchful eye of our trained personnel. And then, sitting comfortably on the motorcycle, you’ll give the throttle a twist and continue to shift through the gears – all while safely and securely attached to the Jumpstart™ platform.
