The Motorcycle Safety Foundation’s Basic RiderCourse (BRC-1) is a beginner motorcycle rider-training program designed for those with very little or no experience in riding a motorcycle.
This combination classroom and hands-on motorcycle training program introduces the basic knowledge and physical skills necessary to ride a motorcycle and requires physical stamina, motor coordination, and mental alertness. The ability to ride a bicycle is necessary for this program.
Classroom adult learning discussions focus on: rider responsibility, risk awareness, risk acceptance and management, riding preparation, and street strategies. At the end of the classroom session, the knowledge test is administered.
Range activities include motorcycle familiarization, mounting, friction zone, starting, stopping, straight line riding, shifting, turning, cornering, stopping quickly, limited space maneuvers, leaning, obstacles, lane changes, and avoiding hazards. Each range exercise has a specific objective that must be achieved to continue. At the end of the range activities, the riding skill evaluation is conducted.
Attendance, participation, and achieving the objectives are required throughout the entire program. You need to know that there is no guarantee of successful completion!
