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

A valid driver’s license is required to take this course. Students have the option of obtaining their NYS motorcycle learner’s permit before coming to class or after they complete the course. Students should be able to ride a bicycle and must provide their own helmets.

Completion of an online component is required before the classroom and riding component. Successful completion of the online element 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!
