Experienced Rider Course

Experienced Rider Course

Evergreen also offers the (ERC) Experienced Rider Course. The ERC is a one-day (6-hour) course designed to help riders with a minimum of 1000 miles of riding experience and/or 6-12 months riding experience to further develop the skills necessary to avoid accidents. On-range discussions will include a review of street survival skills. On Range exercises will include working on proper braking, cornering, and swerving techniques. For the ERC course students use their own motorcycles which will be subject to a safety inspection. Proof of liability insurance and ownership must also be presented before the start of class.  The successful completion of this class (passing both written and skills test) enables riders to receive a Washington Motorcycle Safety Program Completion Card which is a waiver of further testing at the Washington DOL when they go to add the 2-wheel motorcycle endorsement to their Washington Driver’s License.

You must have an endorsement or instructional permit to legally ride your motorcycle to class or a testing session.
