basic-riderThis hands on course is for new or returning riders who want to get their license and learn to ride safely. We’ll teach you practical skills and techniques like; slow speed maneuvers, clutch control, cornering, avoiding obstacles and stopping quickly. These are lifesaving skills and by the time the two day course is complete you will have been riding for approximately 10 hours. We provide the training bikes and you just bring some basic safety gear. Please call if you have questions or need to borrow some equipment. By passing the BRC at our range you will leave with a ‘Course Completion Card’. Just head to your local DMV where they will stamp your license with the motorcycle endorsement and then you are licensed to ride!

Class Times

All classes start promptly at the time listed in your confirmation paperwork. Ending times are approximate. Class may end early or run late, depending on student needs, weather or other factors. We attempt to schedule start times to take weather conditions into account. Occasionally your instructor may ask the class to adjust the start time of the next session to accommodate unforeseen weather (usually heat!) conditions. All riders must agree to the change. If not, the published schedule will be adhered to.

Dismissal from Class

You must be on time and present for the entire time that class is conducted. It is a requirement from the State of Maine that you are present for the entire class. Therefore, late arrivals will not be allowed to participate. Your instructor cannot ‘catch you up’. You cannot ‘ sit out’ an exercise. Please respect your fellow riders by showing up on time and being ready to ride for all sessions. If you are late and denied entry into the class, a refund will not be offered.

Missing any portion of the class will be cause for dismissal. All the courses emphasize the risks involved with riding a motorcycle and these risks are present while a student practices during the course. Students who do not meet the minimum objectives, are unable to keep pace with the class or who pose a hazard to themselves or others, may be dismissed from the class by the instructor. If this happens there will be no refunds and no rescheduling without a fee. Also should you remove yourself from a class that has started you will not be given a refund. You must review our refund/cancellation policy and a class waiver that will be sent to you once you have registered and you will be required to sign these two forms prior to starting the class.
