It’s the Law!

Effective January 1st, 2011 all applicants for a new motorcycle license must successfully complete the CT Motorcycle Rider Education Program.

The basic course, which includes six hours of classroom instruction and twelve hours of on-cycle training, is designed to help individuals with little or no riding experience achieve a better understanding of what is involved in operating a motorcycle/scooter.  You must have a driver’s license or a motorcycle permit, and be physically able to operate a motorcycle/scooter. Motorcycles will be provided. Fee: $240 non-refundable

The Experienced Rider Course is a 5 to 6 hour parking lot course designed for riders who possess the basic skills to maneuver the motorcycle, and who are currently (actively) riding. This is not a license waiver class. There is no classroom instruction in the ERC. Participants should have completed a learn-to-ride course, such as the Basic Rider Course (BRC), and  must have a minimum of 6 months or 600 miles of riding experience.
Students must use their own registered, insured, and road-worthy motorcycle that passes a safety inspection at the start of class.

Fee: $120

This course is currently available at our Fairfield location!

The Returning Rider BRC is a one-day OR two-day course for riders who have been riding for some time or who have been riding with a permit and wish to refresh their skills and/or earn a skill test license waiver. Goals include refining basic skills, increasing knowledge of risk management, and improving perception and situational awareness. You will use our training bikes in this class.

Participants must be 18 or older and must be able to:

  • Coordinate clutch lever and throttle use to control the motorcycle smoothly
  • Upshift and downshift smoothly
  • Stop the motorcycle properly at designated point
  • Negotiate typical roadway turns and curves

Fee: $150 non-refundable   Currently available at our Fairfield location!

Largest Program in Connecticut!

Locations in Farmington, Fairfield, and East Granby.

Motorcycling is one of the most exciting forms of transportation. Part of the thrill is knowing that you are totally responsible for every action taken—from timing each shift to keeping a keen eye out for other motorists. To understand these responsibilities and get the most from your experience, a Connecticut Motorcycle Rider course is the place to start. Expert instruction is offered to both the beginner and the experienced rider. Students must have the ability to balance and push a motorcycle and should have lots of enthusiasm.

Classes are offered April through October in cooperation with the state Department of Transportation’s Office of Highway Safety.
