The Learn2Ride Basic RiderCourse (BRC) is designed for those with very little or no experience riding a motorcycle. The BRC is a combination online eCourse, classroom, and hands-on riding exercises which introduces and practices the physical and mental skills necessary to ride a motorcycle.
After registering for the BRC, you will receive information on enrolling for the motorcycle safety foundation (MSF) online eCourse. You must enroll in and successfully complete the eCourse before your course start date. Your certificate of completion needs to be printed within 30 days of your course start date and brought with you to your course. The eCourse can be completed in approximately three hours and consists of 12 sections. At the end of each section, a knowledge test is administered requiring an 80% passing score.
The classroom session uses small work groups with facilitated, interactive learning activities focusing on perception development and situational awareness. At the end of classroom session two, the knowledge test is administered. A passing score of 80% is required.
Day 1 – approximately five hours
Each range exercise has a specific objective(s) that must be achieved to continue.
Day 2 – approximately five hours
At the end of the range activities, the riding skill evaluation is conducted.
Upon successful completion, you will receive a NYS specific MSF completion card. The completion card and a motorcycle learners permit (both current and valid) are required to be eligible for the road test waiver option and both are presented at a DMV office with a current, valid driver’s license for the motorcycle license upgrade.
Cost: $275 payable at the time of registration.
