Do I get a motorcycle license when the course is finished?

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

Maryland: If you successfully meet all the requirements and pass the BRC or BRC2 course, your passing information will be submitted to the Maryland MVA. You will not need to take any additional “motorcycle related” testing at the MVA.

Out-of-state participants should check with the department of motor vehicles in their home state to find out if they will issue a motorcycle license for a course completed in Maryland.

Pennsylvania: If you successfully pass and meet all the requirements in the BRC or BRC2 course, a participant will get their learner’s permit stamped by a Pennsylvania certified instructor, which will become a temporary license. The passing paperwork will be processed with PennDOT and a new license will be mailed to the participant.

What are the Rider Coach Qualifications?

Each of our professional instructors have an extensive background and experience in riding motorcycles, the motorcycle industry and in providing valuable instruction. In addition, each instructor is certified and licensed by the appropriate state licensing agency and by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF), a nationally recognized curriculum provider.

To become a professional motorcycle safety trainer, these dedicated individuals undergo an intense Instructor Preparation (IP) course that takes months to complete. Once the training program is complete, each instructor is placed on a probationary period to help reinforce the techniques learned during the IP program. In addition to the IP course, some instructors have obtained specialized training including 3WBRC, SRC and others. Finally, each instructor is required to attend annual continuing professional education to update and refine their skills.

Each candidate must meet the following minimum qualifications and expectations for the position:

  • Ability to possess active listening skills, proactive evaluation and provide focused and pointed feedback to students;
  • Knowledge and experience with classroom and range site management including experience with minimal motorcycle repair issues;
  • Ability to know and understand the process to prepare and document all student training process, including preparing all the necessary training forms such as accident / incident reports, student withdrawal forms and course completion reports;

  • Ability to operate a motorcycle safely on a frequent and routine basis;

  • What is the maximum number of students in a course?
