Basic Rider Course

CE Basic Rider Motorcycle Course

This course for beginners teaches the basic skills needed to operate a motorcycle in traffic. Students must be able to balance and ride a bicycle to take this course. The first half of the course familiarizes students with the location and operation of the controls. Students then practice riding on small motorcycles to demonstrate that they have the strength, balance, and coordination to perform straight-line riding, shifting, turning, and stopping exercises. The second half of the course introduces students to street riding strategies needed when sharing the road with other vehicles. Particular emphasis is placed on those skills that have been found lacking in motorcyclists who have had accidents. Those skills include emergency braking, swerving, and proper cornering techniques.

  • No prior motorcycle and or knowledge are needed for the BRC course.
  • A motorcycle endorsement or permit is not required for the BRC course.
  • All exercises are conducted on the protected range.
  • Motorcycles, helmets, and training manuals are provided for the BRC course.
  • Students must wear an approved helmet, over-the-ankle footwear, long pants, a long sleeved shirt or jacket, full fingered gloves, and protective eyewear at all times while training.

The Basic Rider Course uses a building block principle of learning and each exercise/classroom segment builds on the previous one.  Therefore, it is imperative that students attend all portions of the class in the proper sequence.  Students will not be permitted to skip or make up a missed session.  Attendance is mandatory at all sessionsStudents who are late for a class will not be permitted to join the class in progress and/or make up the missed information at a later time.
