Motorcyclist Training Course (MTC)

Now offering the new CMSP Licensing course! This 15 1/2 hour course waives the DMV riding skills portion of the motorcycle licensing process. The written test, however, still needs to be completed at the DMV. This is a pass/no pass course. Before signing up for a class, you need to be able to balance and ride a bicycle, and understand operating a clutch and manual shift vehicle. If under 18 yrs, a waiver must be signed by a parent or guardian. Graduates may qualify for insurance premium discounts with some motorcycle insurers. The course is provided through a variety of schedules to meet different needs. Two consecutive days is common, but there are also multi-day options. Motorcycles and helmets are provided for your use during the course.

As part of our half-day DirtBike course, you will learn the fundamental and technical skills needed to operate your off-road bike in a safe and smart manner. We will help you learn the functions of the controls on your motorcycle—starting, stopping, shifting, cornering, standing, proper body positions, and how to go over certain obstacles. One thing very important for young kids is; they must be able to ride and balance a bicycle.
