The BRC is designed to provide students with the skills they need to operate a motorcycle safely and competently. This 16-hour training includes comprehensive classroom instruction and a minimum of 8 hours of on-cycle training.
Students will learn the basics of controlling the motorcycle, including clutch and throttle coordination, straight-line riding, stopping, turning and shifting, quicker stops, and curves and swerves.
In order to complete the course, students must pass two written and two skills tests.
Endorsement testing is included in our Basic Rider Course! Successful completion enables riders to receive a waiver of further testing, which is accepted by the Washington DOL for motorcycle Endorsements.
The course consists of the following set of exercises. These must be completed in order and at a satisfactory level in order for students to continue with the course.
Students may be dismissed from this course at any time if they are not able to satisfactorily complete the exercises.
Students with little or no motorcycle experience are encouraged to take the Pre-BRC course before enrolling in the Basic Rider Course.
It is important not only to be healthy, but to have enough ﬁtness, strength, and coordination to learn well and manage the physical demands of riding a motorcycle.
