Beginner Licensing

The BRC - Basic Rider Course is a two day course intended for those with little or no riding experience, or for any rider who has missed the opportunity to take formal motorcycle rider education.  It is a TxDPS approved motorcycle safety course where Motorcycle Safety Foundation-certified instructors facilitate the activities in our classroom and coach on our dedicated range. There is also an internet based eCourse assignment required to be completed prior to your scheduled class. 

The eCourse for the BRC is a highly interactive 3-hr. online program that provides riders of all skill levels with the basics of motorcycling. With integrated graphics, photos and video to illustrate the lessons, the program allows you to control the pace of your learning. Once completed, you will print the Completion Certificate and give it to your Rider Coach at the beginning of day 1 of your scheduled class. If you do not have access to a computer or the internet, you can check with your local library. Please note that the Basic eCourse alone is NOT accepted as a license waiver by any state's department of motor vehicles, or as a license to ride a motorcycle or as a learner's permit.

The BRC has approximately 4 hours of classroom time which includes risk awareness, protective gear, motorcycle controls, riding skills, and street strategies activities. The outdoor range exercises make up approximately 10 hours of time, which are conducted on OUR training motorcycles (all 250cc or smaller) in a controlled environment, where students get hands-on experience and personal, professional coaching. Total instructional time is around 14 hours and includes a skill evaluation at the end of the course. Students meeting evaluation standards receive a completion card, which is a requirement to get your motorcycle endorsement.
