Basic RiderCourseSM

This course offers a five hour self-paced online course follow by 11 hours of riding instruction based on the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) curriculum ($349).

Are you not sure if motorcycle riding is for you? Do you want some advance preparation for the Basic Rider Course? Then check out our Headstart course or our Individual Novice Course Level 1 (INC-1).

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.

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.

Each Basic RiderCourse student must complete a five-hour on line session. Upon completion of the online portion students must download and print their completin certificate. Students must bring their completion certificate to the first riding session.
