Welcome to MSI

The Motorcycle Safety Institute of South Africa is a well-recognised organisation on Motorcycle Safety & Risk Awareness in South Africa, conducting specialised Motorcycle Rider Courses throughout the country.

Hein Jonker founded MSI in November 2015 as an independent and private non-government organisation operated by a dedicated team of motorcycle safety enthusiasts.

The Motorcycle Safety Institute is also the only active organisation that monitored Motorcycle Crashes & Collisions in South Africa from Jan 2016 to Dec 2019; collected and analysed valuable data for Risk Awareness and Safety among motorcyclists.

With an ever-increasing network, MSI can aid and support those who share our vision. We work closely with EMS heroes nationwide, Road Traffic Authorities, Road Safety Organisations like Arrive Alive, Motorcycle Councils, and Riding Schools and Academies.
