The Basic Rider Training is a 15 hour class for both the beginner and riders with limited experience. Even though this is a basic class, many experienced riders have benefitted from this class. The course will help develop your skills for becoming a safe and responsible motorcyclist. You will learn the physical and mental skills important for operating a 2-Wheel motorcycle, ways to minimize risk and how to handle special riding situations.
Even though a minimal amount of strength is required to ride a motorcycle, you must possess some stamina to complete this class. You will be required to "Straddle Walk" your motorcycle from one side of the range to the other, as well as turn the motorcycle around numerous times while in Neutral during the second exercise.
Please look at the What to Bring tab to see what items you are required to bring and what is nice to have with you during the class.
In order to pass this class, you must be on time, attend and successfully complete all classroom and range sessions and pass both a Skills and Knowledge test.
You are not required to take any test prior to the class, unless you choose to get your permit to legally ride before your scheduled class. If this is the case, please vist our Testing tab. You will still need to take and pass both the Knowledge and Skills Test associated with the class to get your completion card, regardless of previous test outcomes.
Successful completion of the course enables you to get your 2-Wheel motorcycle endorsement at the state driver license offices without further testing.
MTI provides the motorcycle and has a limited amount of “loaner” helmets.
