MSF (motorcycle safety foundation) BRC (basic rider course)

In the BRC, you will learn:

To have more fun by riding your motorcycle safely.
The basics: what to wear, how to start and stop your motorcycle, and motorcycle controls.*
Street strategies to avoid trouble and stay safe.
How to maneuver your motorcycle in tough situations.
Swerving, avoiding collisions, special situations,
lane changes, passing, and avoiding hazards.

The Basic RiderCourse is a 14 to 15 hour program, which provides classroom and actual motorcycle operator training in a controlled, off-street environment.

you will have to pass a written test as well as riding test to pass the class

at the end of class on sunday, the coaches will evaluate your riding. if you pass, you will be given a certificate that will exempt you from the riding portion of the DPS "M" licensing part. All you'll have to do is pass a DPS written test and eye exam.

No experience is necessary; a good sense of balance is required (you must be able to ride a bicycle).

What To Wear

long pants (jeans fine)

long sleeved shirt or long sleeved jacket

eye protection, eyeglasses or sunglasses fine. if you wear an open face or 1/2 helmet. most schools provide loaner helmets, but bring a do-rag as some helmets have been there for a while. your own personnal helmet is fine as long as it's DOT approved.


gloves, pretty much any glove. as long as their full finger gloves. but remember, if you take a fall, these gloves will be the first to make impact, so sturdy is a pretty good idea.

COST most places charge $180, but call and find out.

schedule: most commonly

fri night 6:30-9:00ish
sat 7:30-12:00 motorcycle range, 1:00-3:30ish classroom
sun 7:30-3:00ish


sat 7:00-5:00
sun 7:30-5:00

some places offer weekday classes and variations of that.


realize, over 90% of motorcycle deaths are people who are self-taught, or taught by family and friends the class is a great way to get into the world of motorcycling safely. some insurance co's. also give you a discount for having taken and passed the class.

if you need more info try here or trying to locate a school, nearer to you try


near bingle and long point. prolly the most centrally located place to take the class. if you wanna take it w/ me, PM me and i'll reply w/ my schedule.

all the inst. there have been doing it along time, and are very good. so i can recommend them to anybody.

the schools phone # 713-365-5660

COST: $180
