Motorcycle Safety Education Advisory Board

About the advisory board

The Motorcycle Safety Education Advisory Board was created by law, RCW 46.20.520, to help our Motorcycle Safety Program develop motorcycle operator training programs, safety education, and outreach. They meet 4 times a year, and make recommendations for the administration, application, and substance of the motorcycle education and training program as necessary.

The board has 5 members:

  • 3 active motorcycle riders or people actively involved in a non-profit motorcycle organization that actively supports motorcycle safety.
  • 1 member of the Washington State Patrol with at least 5 years’ experience, and at least 1 year’s experience as a motor officer.
  • 1 member of the general public.

Board members are appointed by the director of the Department of Licensing, and serve a 2-year term. They receive no compensation for services, except reimbursement for travel expenses while engaged in business of the board.
