The Washington Motorcycle Safety Program, (WMSP), a division within the Department of Licensing, has implemented numerous changes which will add steps and expense to getting your full 2-Wheel motorcycle endorsement after January 1st, 2020. For more information, please visit https://www.dol.wa.gov/driverslicense/mototesting.html.
The four to five hour Additional Riding Course (ARC) assists students in refining their motorcycle skills and techniques. Classes are conducted on our ranges using our bikes.
The ARC is conducted entirely on the range. Students will ride selected exercises from the Basic Rider Course (BRC) that allow them to work on proper braking, cornering, swerving,
and low speed maneuvers. (Please note, you can request a scooter – at the Totem Lake location only – only if you used a scooter in previous courses or plan on scooter only for your
series of classes).
Who should attend?
Riders who have completed the Basic Rider Course, whether or not they have passed the skills test, who would like to receive more training before hitting
the road or retesting*.
All students MUST bring to the range:
DOT-approved helmet (ESC provides helmets at all its sites. However, students are encouraged to bring their own if they own a DOT approved helmet)
Eye protection (eyeglasses, sunglasses, face shield, or goggles)
Sturdy over-the-ankle footwear that provides ankle support and protection from heat and moving parts. Most work type boots and hiking boots work well, but canvas high-tops or slip-on-boots with elastic (only) ankle covering ARE NOT ACCEPTABLE
Full-fingered leather gloves with a sturdy palm of leather or leather like material
Long sleeve shirt or jacket
Long STURDY denim pants or jeans with NO holes or tears that allow any skin to be exposed
Rain gear if necessary (class will continue during rain)
Sun block, as needed
Snacks and/or lunch, and non-alcoholic beverages

Course Fee: $100
*Retesting is available at the end of class for ESC training students who have failed their riding skills test in the BRC or IRT.
