Basic RiderCourse (BRC) (with License Waiver Test) is the best place to start once you’ve made the decision to ride. The basic course covers the basics of operating a motorcycle and safety-oriented mental strategies. Motorcycles and helmets are provided for your use. Successful completion of this course, consisting of five hours of formal classroom activities and ten hours of on-cycle hands on instruction conducted over two or three sessions. Passing the Knowledge Test and the Skill Evaluation will waive the need for a RMV Motorcycle Road Test.  A course completion card will provide a limited 10% discount on your Massachusetts motorcycle insurance.  The cost for this course is $329.00.

The Basic RiderCourse (BRC) (with License Waiver Test) also has a “Small Group” option, which is the BRC that consists of a smaller class size with more individualized coaching and a “Tutoring” (Private BRC) option, which is one student and one RiderCoach.  Both of these options include the Motorcycle Road Test.  The cost for this course is $329.00.

Private Basic RiderCourse (One Day)

The BRC has been designed to be an effective way to learn how to ride a motorcycle over a 2 day, 15 hour course.  If your schedule does not allow for two consecutive days the BRC can be completed in one day during a one-on-one session.  Call for pricing.

Please keep in mind that the one day BRC is very demanding as we are incorporating a tremendous amount of information into a one day session.  We found that a one-day BRC is best suitable for those who are in good physical shape and have at least some motorcycle riding experience.

Basic RiderCourse – Returning Rider (RRBRC)  (with License Waiver Test)

This course combines elements of the Basic RiderCourse and the Basic RiderCourse 2 (Experience). It is designed for riders who already possess basic skills but who have not been riding for several years.  Motorcycles and helmets are provided for your use. Passing the Knowledge Test and the Skill Evaluation will waive the need for a RMV Motorcycle Road Test.  A course completion card will provide a limited 10% discount on your Massachusetts motorcycle insurance.  This course is not intended for a novice rider who is learning to ride for the first time.  This course requires completion of the MSF “e-course” prior to the start of class.  Call for pricing and schedule.

Basic RiderCourse – Skill Practice (BRC – SP) 

This course is a half-day on-cycle program consisting of BRC riding exercises. It is available for riders, who successfully or unsuccessfully completed a BRC, to practice basic skills (you must have been a former BRC student). There is no formal classroom instruction.

Basic RiderCourse  – Formal Remedial Training

Basic RiderCourse 2 (BRC2) (with License Waiver Test)

This course is designed for riders who are currently riding and already have basic skills.  Similar to the BRC except speeds are higher and you will be on your own motorcycle. It is an excellent refresher course to practice and renew riding skills.  There is a classroom component that consists of discussing behavioral safety concepts based on past riding experiences and current knowledge.    Passing the Knowledge Test and the Skill Evaluation will waive the need for a RMV Motorcycle Road Test.  A course completion card will provide a limited 10% discount on your Massachusetts motorcycle insurance.  You must bring a valid motorcycle permit/license endorsement, and an insured/registered/inspected street-legal motorcycle.  Your motorcycle must also pass a safety inspection before being allowed to ride on the range.    This course requires completion of the MSF “e-course” prior to the start of class.  Call for pricing and schedule.

 

Basic RiderCourse 2 – Skill Practice (BRC2 – SP) 

This course is similar to the BRC2 License Waiver course but it is designed for riders who have a license and want to practice basic skills. This 5 hour course consists of only riding exercises and does not include classroom-type instruction. It is a perfect way for you to reinforce basic skill on your own motorcycle.
