Course Description

The Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) Basic RiderCourse (BRC) is designed for beginning riders, aged 14 or older with little or no prior riding experience. The course curriculum is focused on teaching the core motorcycle skills and knowledge needed to safely operate a motorcycle.

The course is comprised of a 5 hour self-paced eCourse followed by 10 hours of on-motorcycle riding training led by an MSF certified RiderCoach. Your on-motorcycle training will take place on one of our MSF approved riding ranges. Your range sessions are split over two consecutive days. Each range class is limited to 8 or less students. When you register for this course, you will be scheduling your range sessions. A motorcycle or scooter, and helmet are provided at no charge. You are welcome to use your own with the requirement that you must provide your current registration, proof of insurance and pass a T-CLOCS inspection. If you would like to use one of our scooters for your class, please contact the office in advance to confirm availability and reserve. Helmets, appropriate apparel, gloves and footwear are required on the range.

The course begins with your completion of your eCourse (your homework). The eCourse is a highly interactive online program you can complete from the comfort of your own home at your convenience. Engaging graphics, photos and video are used to illustrate the lessons. Your homework should be completed approximately one week prior to your range sessions so the information is fresh in your mind before you step onto the range for your on-motorcycle training. Successful completion of your homework is required for you to participate at the range.

During your range sessions, your RiderCoach will guide you through 14 progressive hands-on riding exercises. Your RiderCoach will provide clear direction and feedback as you progress through each of the exercises. Plenty of practice is included to allow you to develop your skills.

Exercises include:

  1. Motorcycle Familiarization

  2. Using the Friction Zone

  3. Starting & Stopping Drill

  4. Shifting & Stopping

  5. Basic Skills Practice

  6. Pressing to Initiate and Adjust Lean

  7. Stopping More Quickly & Tight Turns from a Stop

  8. Stopping Distance Demonstration

  9. Limited-Space Maneuvers

  10. Stopping in a Curve

  11. Curve Judgment

  12. Multiple Curves & Lane Changes

  13. Crossing an Obstacle & Swerving

  14. Skills Practice

The course concludes with a written knowledge test and a hands-on riding skill evaluation.  Passing both will earn you your course completion card which waives the Colorado testing requirements for your motorcycle (M) license endorsement. Successful course completion may also provide a discount on your insurance. Be sure to ask your insurance agent.

Not passing the course is a possibility and does sometimes happen. Your RiderCoach and our staff will be there to guide you with options and recommendations should that happen.
