Basic RiderCourse (BRC I for License Waiver)

This course is for students 16 years of age or older.  The Basic RiderCourse is for entry-level riders and for returning riders whose skills are a bit rusty. Learn the basics of motorcycle operation with patient, professional RiderCoaches. Motorcycles are provided, and helmets are available if needed. This class has an online E-Course component, plus classroom and riding components. Successful completion of this class entitles the student to a NYS motorcycle road test waiver — meaning that no DMV riding test is required.

A valid Driver’s License is required to take this course. Students should currently be able to ride a bicycle.

Price: $310


Basic RiderCourse II — Skills Practice (BRC II)

For graduates of the BRC I for License Waiver class, this is the next step in your riding education. This is a one-day class taken on your motorcycle. Skill drills cover braking, swerving and cornering. This course is also the perfect “first class” experience for experienced riders that have had no formal training, as well as a great option for groups.

There is no license component to this class. A motorcycle license is required for this course. Students must bring and use their own street-legal motorcycles for this class.

Price: $150


Basic RiderCourse II (BRC II for License Waiver)

A one-day course for those riders who have experience and/ or have been riding for years on a learner’s permit, this is NOT a course for beginners. Students are expected to be able to adequately control a motorcycle in a safe manner conducive to legal street riding. Completion of an online E-Course component is required prior to the classroom and riding component. Successful completion of the E-Course and the riding skills test earns a Course Completion Card, which acts as a road test waiver at the DMV. It’s a great way to finally get licensed!

Students must be 18 years of age or older, with a valid NYS driver’s license and a NYS Motorcycle Permit. Students must bring and use their own street-legal motorcycles for this class.

Price: $260


Advanced RiderCourse (ARC)

This is a one-day course for experienced riders, using their own motorcycles. This course introduces advanced riding techniques including the effects of weight placement and trail braking when cornering. Before enrolling, students should be well versed in the basic skills of cornering and swerving, and have good throttle control and braking skills. An outdoor classroom component is included.

Students must be 18 years of age or older with a valid motorcycle license and must bring their own street-legal motorcycle for this class.

Price: $175 (Call Margie at 518.668.5589 for a group rate.)
