This course is offered in different formats: one (1) weekend, two (2) weekend, weekday and weeknight. The weekday, weeknight or two (2) weekend courses are recommended for novice riders. Students under the age of 18 are allowed to take the Basic Rider Course starting at age 15 if they have a valid driver's license. A parent or guardian must accompany the student to the first class meeting; parent signatures are required on some documents. All students must provide and wear protective riding gear including: DOT-approved Motorcycle Helmet; long sleeve jacket or heavy shirt, heavy duty long pants, eye protection - goggles or glasses (required even with a face shield helmet), full fingered gloves, boots (your ankles must be covered and the boot must have a hard sole; high heels or high-top tennis shoes are not permitted), rain and cold weather gear, as needed. Successful completion allows a student to waive the Secretary of State riding skills test.
