No formal classroom. Various topics include, preparing to ride, road management and advanced riding techniques.

This 7-hour course provides another option for an individual to earn their license without having to take the full 18-hour basic course.  It is only for individuals that have some riding experience and are seeking a Class “M” license.

The pre-requisites for this course include the ability to:

  • Use the clutch and throttle to get the motorcycle in motion;
  • Stop the motorcycle properly in a designated area;
  • Execute gradual and tight turns;
  • Up and downshift smoothly; and
  • Achieve a speed of at least 25 mph.

During the initial riding activities, each rider’s ability to operate a motorcycle will be evaluated by the instructors.  Riders who cannot demonstrate minimum riding proficiency will not be allowed to continue and will need to consider enrolling in the Basic Rider Course.  Riders who are not allowed to continue will not be eligible for a refund and may have to pay an additional fee to be enrolled in a Basic Rider Course.

Riders can elect to use a program training motorcycle, or they may use their personal motorcycle if it is street legal and they transport it to the training site legally.   Personal motorcycles must be in good operating condition and pass a routine pre-ride check given as a part of the course.  Riders must have the appropriate riding gear, which includes a DOT certified helmet, eye protection, long sleeve shirt or jacket, full-fingered gloves, long pants and sturdy over-the-ankle footwear.  To complete the course riders must pass a knowledge and skill test.

There is no guarantee that an individual enrolling in this course will pass, or get their license.
