Skilled Rider Course-License Waiver

You know what it's like to feel the rumble of a motorcycle. The license waiver course is perfect for riders who are familiar with a motorcycle, are active riders and need to get their motorcycle license. This two day class will teach you advanced riding skills as well as provide approved documentation to get your motorcycle license. This course will sharpen your riding skills and your riding mindset. Successful completion earns the MSF BRC2 card and a license waiver that gets you a motorcycle endorsement on your license at your state DMV.




This version of the Skilled Rider Course is for riders who want to train on their own bike and earn their motorcycle endorsement. The License Waiver Skilled Rider Course is two days long and includes a classroom session designed to sharpen your mental riding skills and a range session to sharpen your physical riding skills. A riding test is included at the conclusion of the range session, riders successfully completing the skills evaluation earn an endorsement waiver and a Motorcycle Safety Foundation completion card.
