Included in these responsibilities are the tasks of implementing and monitoring a standardized curriculum in all phases of driver and rider education, including commercial vehicles.

Additionally, this unit is responsible for the training and certification of motorcycle safety instructors for the Maine Motorcycle Safety Education Course (MMSEC) which is an 8 hour classroom course and the Basic Rider Course which is a 15 hour hands-on course.
