The Basic Rider Course is a 16 hour curriculum for beginning riders. It begins with “This is a motorcycle.” and progresses through basic skills training, street survival strategies, and some advanced skills training. Pacific NorthWest Motorcycle Safety teaches this course in both two day and three day sessions (see schedule above). There is no difference in the classes except for class times. There is also no difference in the curriculum regardless of the price of the class.
Students must successfully pass both a written test and a skill test to pass this course for “2-wheeled only” motorcycle endorsement. If needed, the cost of one (1) retest of either the written or the skill test is included with the class fee you pay.
We cannot guarentee that you will complete or graduate this class.
In accordance with Washington state law, you must take the course on our motorcyles (see our FAQ pages for exceptions). If you are interested in taking the Basic Rider Course on one of our scooters or you want to ride your own, I need to know when you register.
If a class you’re interested in is marked FULL, please check back at a later date, “cancellations happen” and will be reflected on the schedule.
We also accept “stand-by’s”. Go to our FAQ page to see how to do this.
NOTE: A class may be canceled if there are less than 4 students. We will usually make this decision 2 business days before a class starting date.
