Learn to Ride at All-American Harley-Davidson

Riding Academy

Updated Covid-19 Information:

Riding Academy update for All American Harley-Davidson

As directed by the MVA and Charles County, we will be able to resume Riding Academy Classes in June! Our Riding Academy coordinators are contacting all enrolled students to reschedule. 

After this, we expect our Riding Academy classes of only 5 people or less to continue as scheduled, but we have altered our policies to allow students to postpone
at any time if they do not feel comfortable attending the class.
Additionally, any students who do not feel well should postpone their class for at least 60 days.

Our classrooms will be equipped with cleaning supplies so that surfaces may be sanitized and, given the small number of students, it should be easy for all to maintain a respectful distance.

The range portion of the class is outside and grips, as well as handlebar controls, will be cleaned before and after each class.

We will continue to monitor this rapidly evolving situation and if changes are required we will notify our instructors and students as quickly as possible.

If you have any questions please send us a note: ridingacademy@allamericanharley.com

Also, due to COVID-19 we are no longer able to loan helmets to students. If you do not already have a DOT helmet we can fit one to you at All American HD and as a Riding Academy student, we will offer you a 15% discount on any Harley-Davidson helmet.





When you take a New Rider Course at the Riding Academy you’ll:

  • Learn to ride on a genuine Harley-Davidson® motorcycle! Our fleet of Street 500 motorcycles is serviced by our factory-trained technicians.
  • Get in-class and on-range instruction from Motor Vehicle Administration approved, Motorcycle Safety Foundation® (MSF) and H-D® Certified Coaches.
  • Learn to safely accelerate, shift, brake, and turn, along with maneuvers like controlling skids and surmounting obstacles and get more time in the saddle than the regular state-run classes.
  • Earn an MSF Basic RiderCourseSM Completion Card and a Maryland Card, which exempts you from the riding portion of your license exam and may score you a discount on motorcycle insurance.
