Basic Motorcycle Rider's Course

The Basic Ridercourse introduces you to motorcycle controls, riding, basic maneuvers and traffic skills. You must be at least 16 years of age and be a licensed driver. You must have at least a 30-inch inseam to be able to ride the bikes without tipping over. You must be able to ride a bicycle and possess the necessary hand/eye coordination skills to operate the clutch, brake and accelerator safely. Attendance at all sessions is mandatory.

Upon successful completion of the course, you will receive a completion card to take to Nevada DMV to get your motorcycle endorsement. If you are five minutes late, miss a class, are dismissed from class or do not attend, your class fee is forfeited. This is a difficult program; you may be dismissed if your lack of progression endangers you or your fellow classmates or if you are not able to master the necessary hand/eye skills to operate safely. If you are dismissed from the class you will not receive a refund.
