Course Information

The primary goal of the Basic RiderCourse (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. Course consists of 15 hours of classroom and riding instruction.

The Basic RiderCourse 2 (BRC2) was developed to address the critical skills and knowledge needed for relatively low risk, enjoyable on-street motorcycling.  The course is ideal for graduates of the Basic RiderCourse. It provides a structure for them to further refine their riding skills. Course consists of 6 hours of riding instruction.

The Advanced RiderCourse (ARC) is an 8 hour course for experienced riders that complements a rider’s basic skills and helps with personal risk assessment. The course is taken on your own motorcycle. You must already have a valid class M license to participate in this course.
