Basic Rider Training (BRT) is designed for the novice rider with no (or limited) street-riding experience who wants the in-person classroom experience.
Content: In-person classroom and on-cycle instruction on fundamental skills required to operate the motorcycle and progress to street-strategies and emergency situation skills.
Duration: Approximately 17 hours over three days of combined classroom instruction and hands-on practice on the motorcycle. Course end times are approximate and may vary due to weather or other circumstances. All students MUST attend the classroom AND attend both riding sessions to receive a completion card.
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.
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.
