Beginner Licensing

***  Please note, starting in July 2022, we will be transitioning from a BRC with a 3 hour online course plus 3 hours of classroom and 10 hours riding to a new version that is a 5 hour online course and 10 hours riding (no classroom).  So on the schedule, you might see 2 different schedules for different versions (it will be determined by what the instructor is certified to teach)

To get your motorcycle license in Texas, you must complete a safety course.

The process: Click on the schedule below and choose the date of class you want.  Fill out the registration online and pay at the end.  You will revieve a confirmation email with the link to the eCourse.  Complete the eCourse within 30 days of class.  Show up to class, on time.  Students meeting evaluation standards receive a completion card.  Make an appointment with DPS and turn in the completion card and they will add your motorcycle license.  For full requirements to obtain your motorcycle endorsement, please visit DPS. Be aware that there is a different requirement for minors to get their endorsement.  DPS appontments are sometimes several months out.  It is suggested that you book the appointment as you book your class, with the appointment date you select being after your class.  Choose "Service Not Listed" when booking your DPS appointment.

The BRC - Basic Rider Course is a two day course intended for those with little or no riding experience, returning riders, 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 RiderCoaches facilitate the activities 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 5 hour 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 take a screenshot or print the Completion Certificate and give it to your RiderCoach at the beginning of day 1 of your scheduled class.  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 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 11 hours and includes a skill evaluation at the end of the course.

For class, the following proper protective gear is REQUIRED:

  • A DOT approved helmet, which we can supply
  • Full fingered gloves
  • Eye protection (face shields, glasses, goggles, sunglasses)
  • Long sleeve shirt or jacket
  • Long pants with no holes (preferably jeans)
  • Boots that completely cover the ankle (Converse Classic or other canvas material shoes are not allowed) No tennis shoes! 

 

Our training motorcycles include Honda Groms, Kawasaki ZPros, Kawasaki Eliminators, Suzuki TU250X, Suzuki GZ250, Yamaha TW 200, Yamaha XT250, KTM Duke 200 and a few scooters.
