eRider® Basic Rider Training (BRT) is designed for the novice rider with no (or limited) street-riding experience who wants to study at home for fewer class hours.
Content: online classroom and on-cycle instruction on fundamental skills required to operate the motorcycle and progress to street-strategies and emergency situation skills.
Duration: Average of 4-6 hours to complete the online classroom + approx. 9 hours of hands-on practice on the motorcycle. Course end times are approximate and may vary due to weather or other circumstances.
Provided: Motorcycles are provided. For this course, you may choose to ride one of our motorcycles or bring your own with a size restriction of 400cc or less.
Requirements: See STAR gear requirements. A motorcycle permit or endorsement is not needed; however, a driver's license or permit is required.
You must complete BOTH the online classroom AND the two range sessions to receive a course completion card.
Additional Information: Successful completion of this course will waive ITD's skills test requirement, if the endorsement is added within two years of passing the course. More info.
