Rider training is popular and potentially life-saving. Without proper training, new riders are more likely to be involved in a crash. Experienced riders also can benefit from additional training to hone their crash-avoidance skills.
Successful completion of the Basic Riders Course may entitle a graduate to a 90-day License Waiver from the Department of Driver Services motorcycle license written examination and road test. It does not waive the vision test or any licensing fees.
For the Basic Riders Course, motorcycles and helmets are provided (if you do not have your own helmet). The following clothing requirements are the responsibility of EACH student and MUST be worn during ALL range riding sessions: DOT approved helmet (minimum) with eye protection (face shield, goggles, etc.); Full-fingered gloves (preferably leather); Over-the-ankle boots (high-top tennis shoes or athletic styled shoes are not allowed); Long-sleeved shirt or jacket; and long pants (no holes and not torn).
Enrollment fee (Basic Riders Course), $250; Out-of-state fee, $300
