Safety office personnel advise, audit and assist commanders and managers in executing their safety and occupational health program in order to protect the mission, prevent injury and damage, comply with the law and limit liability. The safety office also manages the installation Army Traffic Safety Training Program (ATSTP).

MOTORCYCLE TRAINING INFORMATION: To register for Motorcycle Safety Courses

 

PURPOSE: The intent of the Army Traffic Safety Training Program (ATSTP) is to meet the regulatory requirements for drivers training as identified in DODI 6055.4, AR 600-55, The Army Driver and Operator Standardization Program and AR 385-10, The Army Safety Program. 

 

PRE-RIDE INSPECTION: A pre-ride inspection of the motorcycle should be as routine and automatic as checking the weather forecast before heading out for the day. It's quick and easy to check the critical components, and a convenient reminder developed by MSF is the T-CLOCS inspection chart, all of which should be checked before every ride.

 

COURSE DESCRIPTION: The ATSTP is an over-arching program that consists of the following programs: Basic and Experienced Motorcycle Courses, Intermediate Drivers Training, Motorcycle Sport Bike Rider Course, and Driver Improvement Training.

 

LOCATION: Motorcycle range near Bldg. 399. The training facility is located near the Water Spout.

a. All Soldiers less than 26 years of age will receive Intermediate Drivers safety
training when newly assigned to an Army installation.


b. All Soldiers owning or operating a motorcycle, whether on or off-post, are
required to complete the Basic and Experienced Rider Course.
