The Beginner Riding Course (BRC) is a 16 hour (2-3 days) licensing course designed for the novice rider with little or no street-riding experience. You will learn fundamental skills required to operate a motorcycle and progress to street riding skills and strategies. Motorcycles and helmets are provided for this course.

The Intermediate Riding Course (IRC) is an 8 hour (1 day) licensing course designed for those riders who have experience and are looking to improve their skills on their own bike. Students must provide their own motorcycle, insurance, registration, and protective riding gear for this course; and helmets are provided, if needed.

The Advanced Riding Course (ARC) is a 9 hour (1 day) non-licensing course that is the most fun, effective way to improve the riding skills for experienced riders in a safe, controlled environment. Students are required to have a motorcycle endorsement and must provide their own motorcycle, insurance, registration, and protective riding gear.

The 3 Wheel Riding Course (3WRC) is an 8 hour (1 day) licensing course designed for those experienced motorcycle or 3-wheel riders who want to learn the physical and mental skills needed to ride 3 wheels safely on the street. Students must provide their own 3-wheel vehicle, insurance, registration, and protective riding gear; and helmets are provided, if needed. *Students who meet evaluation standards at the end of the course receive a completion card and their Class M license with a “9” restriction which prohibits the operation of a 2-wheel vehicle.
