July 30 women only motorcycle course

Allan Woods, Installation motorcycle safety chief, has scheduled a Women Only Experienced Rider Course (ERC) on Friday, July 30. Learn emergency maneuvers on a controlled range, rather than on a busy street.

This is a very good course especially for the rider with a lot of experience. Riders do tend to pick up bad habits over the years and this course will help you to identify and eliminate those on the learning range instead of on the road.

To schedule your course go to or if you have any questions contact Allan Woods at (801) 777-3333, Extension 2.

One eastbound lane will close from Building 849 to Building 847 and one northbound lane at Building 1205. The closure is needed to ensure the safety of workers.

Changes to effect driver's licenses

The Air Force has created a new universal vehicle licensing module that is accessible Air Force-wide through the Air Force portal. This new module will allow drivers to transfer their licenses from base to base without having to create a whole new record. The government license will expire on the same day as your state driver's license. If you're active duty military and have an expired state license from a state that allows expired licenses (Utah does not), your government license will expire on the same day as your Common Access Card (CAC).

Due to the new module, all government driver's licenses that have an expiration date of "indefinite" or a Social Security number listed on them are considered invalid as of July 1, 2010, in accordance with AFI 24-301-8.4.

Drivers are still required to stop by their licensing office to update their licenses to reflect any base changes due to PCS. This is to stay current with state and military requirements.

If you have any questions, please contact your Vehicle Control Officer or Staff Sgt. Jordan Umphress at 801-586-2546.
