Basic RiderCourse (BRC)

The BRC consists of a 3-hour online eCourse that you complete on your own, plus 5 hours of interactive classroom learning and at least 10 hours of hands-on riding instruction. This course provides the beginning motorcyclist with the basic mental and physical riding skills necessary to minimize risk on the street. Learning is a fun, step-by-step process in a secured lot on our user-friendly training motorcycles. Motorcycles and helmets are provided.  Successful participants will receive a motorcycle road test waiver.

Basic RiderCourse 2 for License Waiver (BRC2-LW)

The BRC2-LW is designed for individuals 18 years or older that already have some street riding experience and have held a valid New York State Motorcycle Permit for at least one riding season. 

The course consists of a three-hour on-line eCourse and approximately five hours of practice riding exercises on your own street-legal motorcycle or scooter.  The riding exercises conclude with a skills evaluation.  Successful participants will receive a motorcycle road test waiver.

Introductory Motorcycle Experience (IME)

The Introductory Motorcycle Experience (IME) is just 2 hours long, and the class size is small – just 3 participants! The IME is a program to get familiar with the primary controls of a motorcycle. You'll be given the opportunity to operate the controls while astride the motorcycle as you "power-walk" on our practice range. The IME is a great way to "jump start" your BRC learning experience!  

Basic RiderCourse 2 for Skills Practice (BRC)

The BRC2 is a half-day class for experienced riders that already have their motorcycle endorsement.  The class is “range-only” - no classroom.   Using your own motorcycle, you’ll practice techniques for managing traction: stopping quickly, cornering, swerving…and the use of counterbalancing skills for slow, tight turns. Improve your ride!

MSF RiderCoach Preparation Course (RCPC)

Are you a “people person”?  Do you love motorcycling?  Are you committed to riding safely?  Maybe you’d like to join the Go Motorcycling family of MSF certified RiderCoaches.Each RCP lasts 8 days.  In addition, there are both pre-course activities (class observations/homework) and post-course mentoring (supervised teaching) before full certification is achieved.  See more at
