Experienced Rider Course (ERC)

Evergreen Motorcycle Training

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 all written and skills test) enables riders to receive a waiver of further testing which is accepted by the Washington DOL for motorcycle Endorsements.

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