Motorcycle 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; please check
availability before registering. Personal scooters are also permitted.) Upon successful
completion of the course, you 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. You must be at least 15 and a half years of age and able to ride a bicycle.
Those under 18 years of age must have a release form signed by a legal guardian or
parent. You 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. Visit stlcc.edu/motorcycle for detailed information.

Basic Bike Bonding Course
Bike bonding refers to the connection and interaction between a 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.) The objective
of the Basic Bike Bonding Course is to develop and practice basic skills beyond those
acquired in the Basic Rider Course. The course is designed to provide sufficient control
skills to handle a motorcycle in more challenging street situations in a low risk,
effective and enjoyable training environment. This is an excellent refresher course
for those who may not have ridden for a period of time since their Basic Rider Course
or who desire additional practice time. You must have a motorcycle endorsement or
motorcycle permit. There is no classroom portion to this course. Training motorcycles
are provided. The BRC is a recommended prerequisite for the novice rider, but it is
not required; you must have sufficient riding skills and experience to operate a motorcycle
with basic proficiency. You must have motorcycle permit or M-endorsement on driver’s
license and be 18 years of age or older. Those under 18 years of age must have a release
form signed by a legal guardian or parent. Required items include: DOT-approved three-quarter
or full helmet (loaner helmets available), over ankle boots with two-inch or lower
heels, full fingered gloves, long-sleeved jacket or heavy shirt, eye protection, sturdy
pants and a photo ID. Loaner motorcycles are provided. This is not a MO State waiver
