Yes, you may use your riding gear providing it meets the requirements.
MTII provides helmets and has an assortment of safety glasses. It is highly recommended that you bring a DOT approved helmet sized right for you.
If you are not able to meet the riding gear requirements and are missing items other than those MTII will provide you, YOU WILL NOT BE PERMITTED TO RIDE!
There are no exceptions to the riding gear requirements. It is mandated by the Florida Rider Training Program that all riders be sufficiently protected at all times in the training environment.
Helmet - Full-face, 3/4 and Half helmets are acceptable provided that they meet minimum DOT certification. Personal helmets are subject to inspection for the DOT certification and that they are in good working condition.
Eye protection - Face shield, goggles or some form of sun/eye glasses. They may be tinted or clear. Ordinary prescription glasses may be worn. For night training eye protection must be clear.
Long sleeve T-shirt or dress shirt that reaches the wrist or jacket are all acceptable.
You must wear pants! No exceptions. Denim or leather jeans are preferred. All pants are required to have NO holes in them and must come down to the foot. Dress slacks, spandex, cotton leggings, and sweatpants are NOT permissible.
Must be full finger and cannot be open on the back of the hand or knuckles. Gloves must be motorcycle specific or sturdy leather or synthetic. (Dishwashing gloves and surgeon's gloves are NOT permissible)
MUST completely cover your ankle and have little to no heel (NOT cloth, canvas, etc.) Shoes can be an athletic or hiking shoe that provides reinforced ankle support. Boots are preferred. Your footwear should have a good rubber sole for traction and the heel shouldn't be higher than what is commonly on a "work boot".
Thin fabric shoes made of canvas or other fabrics that do not provide support are not permissible. The classic Converse All Star "Chuck Taylor" or dress shoe are examples of shoes that DO NOT meet the requirements.
In today's economy motorcycles and motorcycling are an economical and environmentally good choice as an alternative means of transportation. To help, MTII offers the Financial Aid Program.
