Motorcycle Safety Basic Rider Course


Learn how to ride, and earn your motorcycle license endorsement in this 14.5-hour course featuring 10 hours of on cycle training and 4.5 hours of classroom training. Supportive and friendly instructors will teach you how to operate a motorcycle and the basic skills you need to safely ride on the street. Training motorcycles are provided for riders of all sizes. If you're an automatic scooter rider you can bring your own scooter with proof of insurance if it's 500cc or less, 400 pounds or less, in good working order and registered as a motorcycle.

If you are 18 or older, you must have a motorcycle PERMIT prior to taking the BRC to receive your motorcycle endorsement. Riders under 18 are required to take this course to obtain a motorcycle permit.

Permits can be obtained from the Driver and Vehicle Services exam station. You must have a valid driver's license to receive your motorcycle license.

Classroom topics include protective riding gear, preparation, risk management, street strategies, special riding situations and impairment. Riding exercises - always with two instructors providing expert guidance and feedback - teach the basic skills of clutch and throttle control, straight line riding, turning, shifting and stopping. Advanced exercises teach U-turns and tight turns, maximum braking, counter-steering, cornering and swerving. Workbooks and exam are available in Spanish upon request.

Students must complete 14.5 hours of integrated instruction: 4.5 hours in the classroom and 10 hours of practice on the training motorcycle. Students must possess a valid driver's license or motor vehicle instruction permit.
