Required Riding Skills: There is no prerequisite for this clinic; however, all participants are expected to be fully endorsed and have riding skills sufficient to maintain control and practice safely with other riders on a closed course.

*It is the participant’s responsibility to ensure that he/she has adequate skills for participation, as no refunds are offered for dropping out of the course once the clinic begins.

You MUST provide your own motorcycle for this class. There is no size restriction for motorcycles/scooters for this class.

All personally owned motorcycles/scooters must be street legal and in safe operating condition. The Instructor will inspect your vehicle to ensure compliance. A Pre-Ride Inspection Checklist is available to help you prepare for the class. While the Instructor will not check all items, the Pre-Ride Inspection Checklist is an excellent tool to ensure your vehicle is in safe operating condition. Straight pipes or excessively loud bikes are NOT allowed and will be determined appropriate at the discretion of the Instructor. Tuition will not be refunded if your vehicle does not pass or if mechanical issues/failure prevent you from completing the course.

You must bring current proof of insurance and ownership/current registration for the motorcycle/scooter used in training. If the registration and/or insurance are not in your name, you must bring written permission from the owner allowing you to use the vehicle during the class.

If you are under 18 years of age, a waiver must be signed by your parent or guardian. Your parent or guardian can stop by the Idaho STAR main office in Boise and sign paperwork before class, OR they may come to the beginning of class to sign the necessary paperwork. Another option is for you to print the waiver and have your parent or guardian take both pages to be notarized prior to the class, then bring the notarized waiver to class with you. You will not be allowed to ride in the course until the Instructor has an acceptable waiver on file. If you are not allowed to continue for this reason, your full tuition will be forfeited.
