Basic RiderCourse (BRC) - Web Enhanced | Beginning Riders | E |

This course is designed for someone who has little or no experience operating a motorcycle, and it focuses on the development of basic riding skills: clutch and throttle coordination, straight-line riding, braking, turning, and shifting. Training motorcycles are provided. Privately owned motorcycles are NOT permitted. This is a path-to-Endorsement course: successful completion allows a student to waive the written knowledge test and riding-skills test at the Secretary of State.

Instruction consists of approximately 18 total hours – 3 hours of online preparation to be completed prior to your class start date, 5 hours of classroom instruction, and 10 hours of hands-on training.

Weekend BRC students need to be available, but not necessarily on-site, for all of Saturday and Sunday. Students are placed into groups during classroom instruction on Friday; those in Group A will ride in the morning (8am-1pm), and those in Group B will ride in the afternoon (1pm-6pm). While we do our best to accommodate requests, please keep in mind that we cannot guarantee placement into either specified group. Please reserve any such discussions for your instructor on Friday.

Prerequisites:

  • Ability to ride a bicycle.
  • Must have a valid email address on file with the College. Must complete the online eCourse prior to your class start date and bring the completion certificate to the first class session. The link to the eCourse will be distributed by the College via email at least one week prior to the start date of your class. If you have not received an email by this time, you must contact the CEPD office at (734) 462-4448.
