MRC On-Road Training - Level 2

All MRC On-Road Training courses are individual courses.

Coach and student communicate through FRS radios with in-helmet speaker & microphone.

Level 2 typically includes neighborhood streets/avenues/boulevards (15-25 mph speed limits). Neighborhood streets typically are narrow and unmarked with parking allowed on one or both sides and driveways leading to the street. Two-way and all-way stops are common.

Level 2 routes should include level 1 and be planned to:

  • include both right and left turns from level 1 routes onto level 2 routes after stops and/or yields
  • lane choice
  • speed adjustments
  • commercial area entry/exit
  • refueling (if required or when time permits)
  • • speeds should suitable for the environment. Where appropriate, speeds up to 45 mph should be achieved

Level 2 activities should include all level 1 activities, plus:

  • turns from level 1 routes on to level 2 routes after stops.
    • right turns should emphasize turn from the stop into the right lane if two lanes are present.
