Course Information

Basic Rider Course (Basic Riders)

The primary goal of the BRC is to provide an introduction to the fundamentals of safe, responsible motorcycling. The BRC is designed to prepare riders for entry into the complex world of traffic. It consists of classroom and on-cycle instruction, and includes a variety of learning activities. Classroom experiences consist of 5 hours of RiderCoach-led discussions and the utilization of interactive multimedia. On-cycle instruction is conducted on a paved area away from the street. The riding portion of the curriculum consists of approximately 10 hours of instruction. Evaluation for the BRC consists of a written, multiple choice knowledge test and an end-of-course skills test.

Basic Rider Course 2 (Experienced Riders)*

You will need your own motorcycle to take these classes.

The BRC2 was developed to address the critical skills and knowledge needed for relatively low risk, enjoyable on-street motorcycling. The course is for experienced motorcyclists of all ages and is usually completed in one or two days (total 6 hours). The course is ideal for graduates of the Basic RiderCourse. It provides a structure for them to further refine their riding skills. The course is informative, enjoyable and valuable. We recommend that riders refresh and hone their riding skills every year with a BRC2.

*Experienced riders who have a motorcycle permit can become licensed through the Basic RiderCourse 2.
