3-Wheel Basic Rider Course updated (3WBRCu)

If you have minimal experience or are unlicensed operating a three-wheel motorcycle, this course is for you. Develop your basic riding skills as you learn proper turning, shifting and braking. You have approximately 18 hours of instruction: eight (8) in the classroom, eight to ten (8-10) on the range, and two (2) in evaluation and testing. Three-wheel motorcycles will be provided. Sharing may be required. Successful completion allows a student to waive the Secretary of State written & riding skills test.
