Basic RiderCourse2 (BRC2)
The BRC2 is for riders who already possess basic riding skills. This course is similar to the Basic RiderCourse (BRC) except that speeds are higher, you are allowed to ride your own motorcycle, and the course is just 1 day.
This is an excellent opportunity to save yourself the hassle of getting pulled over without an endorsement. You already know the basics, now let's make it official.
Here are the highlights:
- You'll practice skills such as shifting, low-speed control, quick stops, swerving, and more.
- You can bring your own motorcycle or use one of ours, and we will provide you with a full-face Arai helmet at no additional cost.
- The course includes a 2-hour online eCourse, 3 hours of formal classroom activities, and 5 hours of riding.
- Your successful completion of this course provides you with a completion card that you will need to take to the DMV to get the motorcycle endorsement on your license or permit. No DMV testing required.
