Although called the Basic RiderCourse, the skills developed and practiced in this class can benefit even the most seasoned riders. Successful completion of this course waives further testing with the Colorado DMV for your motorcycle endorsement.

The Basic RiderCourse (BRC) is the best place for new riders to start once you'’'ve made the decision to ride. The BRC is conducted at a pace that results in successful completion for most novice riders. Our RiderCoaches will help you learn to the best of your ability.

This is a 15-hour course; 5 hours classroom and 10 hours of riding a motorcycle. There is also now an eCourse component that must be completed prior to class.

The eCourse can be done in the comfort of your own home and at your own pace. There is no additional charge for the eCourse. The eCourse will prepare you for your first riding experience and covers topics like basic operation, preparing to ride and some more advanced topics like risk and riding, and basic street strategies. Prior to your first classroom session you must present a copy of your eCourse Completion Certificate to your Instructor/RiderCoach.

The weekend course schedule uses what is known as a 21/2 day training format. However, only a portion of each day is used to accomplish the approximate 15 hour curriculum; 3 hours Friday evening, about 6.5 hours on Saturday and 5.5 hours on Sunday. The weekday course schedule utilizes a full 2 day format running from about 8:00am - 5:00pm both days including a one hour break for lunch. Both courses contain exactly the same curriculum and include the same number of actual training hours. The only difference is that the weekend course is conducted at a slightly more relaxed pace.

    Classroom sessions will cover:
  • Crash causation factors
  • Scanning techniques
  • Risk management and street strategies
  • Reaction time and visual acuity activities
  • Intersection and curve management strategy scenario's

    During the on-cycle sessions your RiderCoaches, through a series of fourteen progressive exercises, will coach you in the following areas:
  • Familiarization of motorcycle controls and their operation
  • Clutch control
  • Slow riding skills
  • Shifting and basic braking
  • Adjusting speed and turning
  • Cornering, swerving, and countersteering
  • Stopping on a curve
  • Stopping quickly

We provide the motorcycles and helmets for this class (you may use your own DOT approved helmet if you have one). Students must provide eye protection (goggles, eye or sunglasses) full fingered gloves, long sleeve shirt or jacket, long sturdy pants, and over-the-ankle footwear. Anyone under the age of 18 is required to have at least a driving permit prior to starting the class and a signed waiver by their parent or legal guardian.

Successful completion of the BRC provides State licensing waivers for both the written and riding tests. Additionally, some insurers provide insurance premium discounts upon presentation of your completion card. You'll smile with satisfaction as your RiderCoach hands you that course completion card starting an adventure you will never forget or regret.

If you must reschedule and fail to contact us at least 48 hours before the start of your class, a $75 rescheduling fee will be applied. No shows will lose their full registration fee.
