Course Details: Basic & Experienced


Basic Rider Course (BRC)


This course is aimed at beginning riders who have obtained their regular driver's license or have completed a driver's education course, or riders who are getting back into motorcycling or who want to brush up on important skills.

A minimum of five hours of classroom instruction prepares you for at least 10 hours of practical riding in a controlled off-street environment, namely a parking lot that is free of obstacles and traffic. A motorcycle and helmet are available and included in your tuition.

In the classroom you will learn about the different types of motorcycles, their controls, how they are operated and how to become a responsible rider. Your Rider Coach will advise you on what gear to wear for protection and comfort. You'll find out how alcohol and drugs adversely affect your ability to ride safely. On the range, you will practice basic control and straight line riding skills, then turning, swerving, and maximum braking. The Motorcycle Safety Foundation's research based and proven curriculum will help you develop your skills one efficient step at a time.

The course concludes with a knowledge test and a riding skills evaluation. Once your Rider Coach hands you the course completion card, you will be happy knowing that you have gone the extra mile to develop your own safe riding techniques. Tuition for this course is $295.00.
