More Courses We Offer

The Basic RiderCourseSM

The MSF Basic RiderCourse is designed for beginning riders and is a good refresher course for returning riders looking to sharpen their basic skills. Five hours of classroom instruction and ten hours of practical riding exercises prepare you for operating a motorcycle safely on the street. Motorcycles, helmets and gloves are provided for your use during the course. Successful completion of the course may waive the riding skills test at the California DMV.

In the classroom, you’ll learn about the different types of motorcycles, layout and operation of the basic controls, and how to become a safer, more responsible rider. Next, you’ll move to the riding range and your RiderCoach (an experienced motorcyclist certified by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation) will be your guide leading you through step by step exercises that build your riding skills. After learning straight-line riding, stopping, shifting, and turning, you’ll gradually progress to practical skills such as lane changes and slow tight turns, cornering technique, and hazard avoidance skills such as swerving and stopping quickly.

The course concludes with a knowledge test and a riding skill evaluation. Once your RiderCoach hands you the course-completion card, you can be confident knowing that you’ve gone the extra mile to develop your safe riding techniques.
