One-Day/8-Hour Course

Successful completion waives all testing at the Colorado DMV for your endorsement.

This course is designed for riders who want to obtain a motorcycle endorsement or who want more practice on their own motorcycle. Topics include risk management, optimizing lane position and visibility, protective gear, rider responsibility, motorcycle inspection and care balancing the mental and physical aspects of safe riding, and the effects of alcohol and drugs on riding.

This course is for riders who already have basic skills. It is similar to the Basic RiderCourse except the speeds are higher and riders should be riding their own motorcycle. It is an excellent refresher and next step course to practice and renew basic riding skills. There is a required eCourse (approximately 2 hours on-line), a 3 hour classroom session, and 5 hour riding session.

Riders are highly encouraged to use their own street legal motorcycle (proof of insurance and registration will be checked) for this class. Practicing techniques of managing traction, stopping quickly, cornering and swerving on your own motorcycle is the best way to prepare for riding on the streets. If this is not possible, a training motorcycle may be rented for an additional $20.

The Basic RiderCourse2 is designed to result in successful completion for most riders. We will help you learn to the best of your ability. If you have significant difficulty or become a risk to yourself or others, as determined by you or your RiderCoach, you will not be permitted to continue to ride. At this point, your RiderCoach will discuss other possible options available to help you develop your riding skills.

To successfully complete the course and obtain your endorsement, you must attend and participate in all sessions and pass the written test as well as the riding-skill evaluation. Successful completion of the BRC2 is not a guarantee that you will be safe on the road. The attitude and level of safety you carry with you when ride with is your choice. We pray it is a great one, and that you continue to keep learning, ride wise, and enjoy every moment of the journey.
