The Basic Rider Course is approximately 15 hours of classroom and on-cycle instruction conducted over a two day session. Emphases is on basic techniques as well as defensive maneuvers. It is designed for the beginner who wants to learn to ride a motorcycle and for the experienced rider who wants to sharpen their riding skills. This course is physically and mentally challenging and students must be in good health to participate.
We provide motorcycles for this course and a helmet, if needed.
Successful completion of this course is recognized by the DPS for licensing requirements, and could qualify you for a 10% reduction in your liability insurance.
Minimum age: 15 (under 18 with parental consent and Class C driver's permit or classroom portion of Drivers Education completed).
Students must attend all class sessions and pass both the knowledge and skill tests in order to receive a Certificate of Completion.
The certificate, when presented to the DPS licensing office, allows any person with a Class C unrestricted license to waive the on-cycle test.
This course is designed as a foundation to develop basic techniques. Almost ninety-six percent of students pass the course the first time. We cannot guarantee you successfully complete the course nor can we guarantee the safe operation of your motorcycle after completion of the course.
The Experienced Rider Course is approximately 5 hours of on-cycle instruction. Students must be licensed operators who currently ride on a regular basis. The course objective is to provide students with the skills identified as lacking in the accident-involved motorcyclist. On-cycle instruction covers street strategies and special situations, advanced turning, braking, and evasive skills.
Each student attending the Experienced Rider Course will be required to provide their own motorcycle. Motorcycles must be licensed, insured, and street-worthy. Proof of insurance is required. There is no lunch break during this class so we recommend you bring snacks.
