Basic Rider Course (BRC)

Because of the 2020 Covid-19 recommendations, at this time we will only be offering classes in Bismarck, West Fargo, and Williston. Seating may be limited.

This site will be updated as classes and locations become available.


The Basic Rider Course (BRC) is ideal for beginners or people that need a refresher course.  Some riders take this class several times until they feel comfortable enough for riding their own motorcycle. You do not need to have your permit or license for this class. (The permit test can be completed either before or after taking our course). The class is about 12 hours in length with approximately 4 hours spent in the class and the remainder on the range. The class portion is completed before the range portion. 

The registration fee for the class is $125.00 (non-refundable). We operate on a tight schedule. If you are not present at roll call, you will forfeit your seat in the class and your registration fee.  

Course includes classroom and on-cycle training with Motorcycle Safety Foundation Nationally Certified RiderCoaches.  You must participate in all sessions and must pass a written and riding exam to receive a Course Completion Card. 

The Basic Rider Course (BRC) includes a 25 question multiple choice test that you are required to get a grade of 80% or more to pass. The Student Handbook and instructions are mailed to the address you provide.  All participants should answer the 175 questions in the back of the Student Handbook prior to attending the classroom portion.  The classroom test questions are based on the Student Handbook information. 

If you do not receive your Student Handbook at least a week prior to class, click on 'Contact Us' located at the left hand corner of the Home Page. (please allow enough time to send in the mail) 

You are also required to pass a riding skills test on the range to receive your Certificate of Completion Card.
