Basic RiderCourseSM

This course offers 15+ hours of classroom and riding instruction based on the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) curriculum ($339).

This course is specifically designed for the novice/beginner rider. Basic Rider Course Students learn about components and controls of a motorcycle, riding gear and preparing for the ride. The risk of riding and managing that risk are studied in depth to better prepare the student for "real life" riding. Strategies are investigated that will prepare each student for riding on the street in traffic. Whether you want to learn to ride for pleasure or basic low-cost transportation or both, this course is perfect for you.

Take a look at our BRC Highlight Reel to get a feel for the course.

Many students are returning riders. They rode a motorcycle in their youth, but haven't ridden in years. This is a perfect reintroduction to riding. Experienced riders can break bad habits and gain new skills.

Graduating students receive a Motorcycle Safety Foundation completion certificate and a Virginia Class "M2" endorsement (motorcycle license). Here's some more information about obtaining your Class "M2" endorsement in Virginia and Washington, DC.

We offer both weekday and weekend classes throughout the year. Class sizes are typically 10 students facilitated by two professional coaches.

Weekday class format is typically:

  • Day one: Classroom 8:00 am to 12:00 pm and Range 12:30 to 5 pm
  • Day two: Range & Testing 8:00 am to 1:00 pm
