The BRC2 is a course for riders who already have basic motorcycling skills. This course is intended for riders who want to become more comfortable and confident on their own motorcycle and focuses on improving street riding techniques, cornering and crash avoidance maneuvers. Too, this course is suitable for motorcycle riders who have practiced riding their motorcycles and seek to upgrade their learner’s permit to a Motorcycle License.

The BRC2 is also ideal as a refresher course to take in the spring or as an opportunity to become better acquainted with a newly purchased motorcycle.

Students must provide their own motorcycle, proof of insurance and protective riding gear. This course may be taken while carrying an adult passenger (rider and passenger may NOT share riding responsibilities).

Students passing the skill evaluation at the end of the course receive a completion card and earn their Motorcycle license, waiving the on-cycle skills test at the local DLC.
