Basic RiderCourseSM

This course offers 15+ hours of classroom and riding instruction based on the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) curriculum ($329).

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 - 12 students facilitated by two professional RiderCoaches.

Our 2020 schedule ends on November 16th, 2020 because our agreement with Fair Oaks Mall requires the use of our lot for holiday shopping parking.

This hiatus will allow us to prepare for the 2021 season.

The 2021 schedule begins on/after February 1, 2021, and will be posted during November 2020.

This affects all MRC courses except On-Road Training. We will continue to schedule these classes on an individual basis.
