Course Details:

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.

The ARC is designed to complement and build on the skills learned and practiced in other rider courses.  Special emphasis is given to self-assessment, risk management, rider behavior, riding strategies and overall skill development, particularly in braking, cornering and swerving techniques.

During the course the student will discuss various topics in a fast-paced classroom segment with several fun interactive activities which will help improve perception and hazard awareness.

During the in-person riding the student will enhance both basic operating skills and crash avoidance skills. The course will emphasize how to improve braking and cornering finesse. Throughout the course the instructors will evaluate and coach each rider’s performance.

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 or Basic Rider Course 2 (Intermediate). 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 an alternate course.

The course concludes with a course evaluation and overall course wrap-up.

Participants in the course are required to use their own street legal motorcycle. Personal motorcycles must be in good operating condition and shall pass a routine pre-ride check before it can be used in the course. Riders must accept all liability for the use of their motorcycle in the course.  The Program will not be responsible for any damage to a rider’s motorcycle as a result of their participation.
