Motorcycle Safety Basic Rider Course

Basic Rider Course (MSF-BRC) is geared toward the novice motorcyclist or scooter operator and also provides an excellent skills update for returning riders or those with experience but no previous formal training. The course consists of classroom and on-bike instruction with furnished motorcycles or scooters (loaner scooters are limited — check availability before registering; personal scooters are also permitted). Those who successfully complete the course will be issued a completion card from the Missouri Motorcycle Safety Program that serves as a waiver for the road test portion of the Missouri license endorsement.

Students must bring a three-quarter or full helmet that meets Department of Transportation standards (loaner helmets available), over ankle boots with two-inch or lower heels, full finger gloves, long-sleeved jacket or heavy shirt, eye protection, sturdy pants and a photo ID. At the discretion of the instructors, students who are unable to safely operate the motorcycles will be dismissed from class for their own protection and the safety of the group. No refunds will be given if you are unable to complete the class for any reason. Class held rain or shine. You must arrive on time for class; late arrivals will not be admitted.

Motorcycle Skills: Basic Rider Course 2

The BRC-2 was developed to hone your skills and fine-tune the mental drills crucial to being a safe rider while using your own motorcycle. This is an excellent class as a refresher after winter storage, to update your training for insurance company discount or as an intermediate level of training after the Basic Rider Course. Put into practice the techniques of managing traction, stopping quickly, limited space maneuvers, cornering and swerving using your own bike. There’s always something left to learn! This course is for two-wheeled motorcycles only (no scooters). Must have motorcycle permit or M-endorsement on driver’s license, be 18 years of age or older, and provide own street legal and insured motorcycle. Students should have successfully completed a Basic Rider Course or have sufficient riding skills and experience to operate a motorcycle with basic proficiency. Students who cannot demonstrate basic low-speed maneuvers in the first exercise can be counseled out of the class. Students must bring DOT-approved three-quarter or full helmet (loaner helmets available), over ankle boots with two-inch or lower heels, full finger gloves, long-sleeved jacket or heavy shirt, eye protection, sturdy pants and photo ID. Passengers are permitted to accompany riders; all safety gear and rules apply. Class held rain or shine. **

Motorcycle Skills: Ultimate Bike Bonding Rider Course

Bike bonding refers to the connection and interaction of the rider and motorcycle. Good bike bonding helps riders automate their physical skills so they can devote more attention to road and traffic conditions (searching and evaluating). This is a precision riding curriculum derived from police motorcycle training courses and consists of drills and skill circuits to improve a rider’s performance. Controlled motorcycle operation and body positioning are emphasized to maximize low-speed operation and control. By the end of the course, participants should be able to handle their motorcycle in a more precise and smooth manner. There is no classroom portion to this course. Participants must provide their own motorcycle and pass an on-site safety inspection. The BRC-2 or ARC are recommended prerequisites if the student has never taken a formal class for low speed maneuvers. Must have an M-endorsement on license, use their own street-legal insured motorcycle (no scooters permitted), and be 18 years of age or older. Required items include DOT-approved three-quarter or full helmet (loaner helmets available), over ankle boots with two-inch or lower heels, full finger gloves, long-sleeved jacket or heavy shirt, eye protection, sturdy pants. **
