THE BASIC RIDERCOURSE
Total fee: $235
The Basic RiderCourse is intended for those with little or no experience, or for any rider who has missed the opportunity to take formal motorcycle rider education. This hands-on, learner-centered, step-by-step course teaches everything from the ground up.
MSF-certified instructors teach in our classroom and coach on our dedicated range. Four hours of classroom instruction includes risk awareness, protective gear, motorcycle controls, riding skills, and street strategies. Outdoor range exercises are conducted on our training motorcycles (all 250cc or smaller) in a controlled environment, where students get hands-on experience and personal, professional coaching.
Total instructional time is 16 hours, including a skill evaluation at the end of the course. Students meeting evaluation standards receive a completion card, waiving the on-cycle skill test required by the state for a motorcycle endorsement, which must be obtained from the DMV.
As a minimum, each student must be able to ride and balance a bicycle.
Each student MUST provide and wear the following required safety gear:
- D.O.T. approved helmet (loaners available)
- Eye protection (glasses or face shield)
- Full-fingered gloves
- Long-sleeve shirt or jacket
- Over-the-ankle boots (with low heels)
- Long pants (jeans with no holes or tears, sturdy material recommended)
