UPDATED BASIC RIDERCOURSE (BRC)
Want to get your license to ride a motorcycle or scooter? This is THE course! Once you’ve decided that you want to pursue riding, we’ll help you get ready to get your license.

Even for people who have no prior experience with motorcycles, this course has been proven to get positive results. Once you’ve passed this course, you can receive a license with no further testing at the MVD. It’s also helpful for anyone who wants to get back into riding after a long break and people who want insurance discounts from their providers.

SKILLS PRACTICE SERIES
This series will help you refine your motorcycle handling skills. The four part series includes swerving, stopping, cornering, and maneuvering at low speeds. This series is intended for people who already have some basic skills or have just completed the Basic RiderCourse.

This course also includes night riding at our premier motorcycle rider training facilities in Gilbert and Tucson. We’ll work on these skills under the lights to become more comfortable riding even after the sun goes down. To complete this course, riders should have their own registered motorcycle, a motorcycle endorsement, and valid insurance.
CONFIDENT RIDERCOURSE (CRC, BRC2)
This course is another option for continued education if you already have some experience or have recently completed the Basic RiderCourse.
