You will be learning to ride in a group environment. Instructors will do their best to provide individual coaching and instruction to students. However, time is limited and they must also keep the class on schedule.
The Basic Rider Course takes a building block approach to learning to ride a motorcycle. Each exercise builds on the skills, knowledge, and confidence acquired from the previous exercises.
If you are unable to consistently achieve the exercise objectives, the Instructor will counsel (remove) you from the course.
It’s natural to be nervous about learning to ride a motorcycle. While some fear is to be expected, excessive fear can lead to tension and ultimately to mistakes on the riding range.
If the Instructor perceives that you have an excessive amount of fear and are a danger to yourself or other students, the Instructor will counsel (remove) you from the course. There will be NO refund of tuition.
To obtain your Motorcycle Safety Foundation Completion Card, you will be required to pass both a written and riding test. The decision of the Instructor is final with respect to whether you have passed or failed the test. Taking this course does NOT guarantee a motorcycle license.
