The Total Control Intermediate Riding Clinic (Total Control IRC®) is the perfect next step for newer riders who are looking to improve their skills on their own bike as well as riders that have recently gotten back into riding after years off. This course includes both classroom and on-cycle instruction.

You will learn intermediate-level skills required to safely operate a full-sized motorcycle and understand the basic psychology of riding to help make better choices on the road. Topics covered include having a proper mental state, understanding two-wheeled vehicle dynamics, cornering strategies for multiple types of turns, emergency braking and evasive maneuvers.

The course is based on the most current research in rider safety and utilizes modern training methods.

Students must provide their own motorcycle, proof of insurance and protective riding gear.

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 Driver License Center (DLC).
