Pacific NorthWest Motorcycle Safety together with Washington Motorcycle Safety Training are able to offer this unique training experience. We are proud of our commitment to offer the motorcycling public multiple levels of training for riders of all types of motorcycles, including trikes and sidecar rigs.
The On-Street Course (OSC) is an opportunity for new riders to get familiar with being on the street, as well as for more experienced riders to enhance their street riding skills. Class size is limited to no more than 4 students at a time, with 2 instructors, in order to ensure as much personal attention as possible for each rider. The general themes of this course are:
The OSC begins with approximately 2-3 hours in the classroom where students will participate in perceptual skills exercises to enhance their abilities and/or to get them thinking about looking for potential hazards.
The class then moves to the training range for a skills test to verify that students have the necessary skills to safely continue in the class. (NOTE: This test is very similar to what is used by the DoL and in our Basic RiderCourse and Intermediate Rider Training.)
Riders will be fitted with radios to use for communication with the instructors during the on-street portion, as well as hi-viz vests to make it easier to identify the group.
Then the fun begins. Students will be taken out onto public roads on 2 different routes, each of which are progressively more challenging. We begin with light traffic areas on the first route; then move to more commercial, heavier traffic areas; and finish with a freeway experience. (NOTE: if a student is uncomfortable continuing, or in the opinion of the instructors it would not be safe for a student to continue, they will be escorted back to the training site.)
NOTE: Passengers are not allowed on student’s motorcycles during this class.
DO IT YOUR WAY!! We will run this class with at least two students. If you and a friend or relative would like to take a one day ON STREET COURSE give us a call and we can take a closer look at our schedule to find a date that fits your schedule. Your group (up to 4 total students) must register and pay at the same time to guarantee the minimum number of students required. Call us at 360-779-6378.
IMPORTANT – PLEASE READ:
The OSC may be cancelled if weather conditions are unsafe. That decision will be made by the instructor at the beginning of class or any time during the class if the weather changes to an unsafe riding condition. If the class is cancelled before it begins a full refund or reschedule is available to the student. In the event the course needs to be stopped after it begins, we will reschedule the students into a later class at no extra charge, but we cannot refund any money once the class begins.
