About The Beginner Motorcycle Rider Course

The Basic Rider Course consists of approximately 16 hours of instruction (online eCourse and eleven hours on a motorcycle). After receiving your confirmation email – with MSF link – enroll in and complete the MSF eCourse, the classroom portion of the course prior to on cycle range sessions. We provide the motorcycle and helmets. It is strongly recommended at this time you bring your own DOT helmet when attending your range sessions. If you do not have your own helmet please bring a bandana. You provide a positive, involved attitude.

This course is for everyone who now rides or is considering learning to ride. It is both mentally and physically challenging, especially in adverse weather conditions. The emphasis of the course is safety! The online eCourse and on-cycle range sessions cover everything you need to know through hands-on training and motorcycle riding experience .
