This course is designed for inexperienced riders and riders who would like to improve their riding skills. The Motorcycle Safety Foundation Basic Rider Course (Update) is a learn-to-ride education and training program that consists of a three-hour online internet course to address basic motorcycle knowledge, five hours of classroom instruction with a RiderCoach to address rider perception and risk management, and 11 hours of on-cycle, hands-on instruction. Motorcycles are provided for use during the course.

As a student you must be able to balance the motorcycle to participate in the riding portion of the course and pass the riding skills test in order to successfully complete the course. Successful completion results in being exempted from riding the licensing skills test conducted by the Department of Transportation. The course completion card earned may also provide an insurance discount.

The class is conducted on weekends (Friday night, Saturday, and Sunday) at the WITCC Beltway Center at 3415 Highway 75 North. The schedule is dependent upon course section selected (shown below).

  • Students under 18 must have a parent or guardian sign a waiver prior to the start of the first class unless other arrangements are made ahead of time.
