Due to COVID-19 precautions, all Motorcycle Rider Education classes will be postponed until after June 1, 2020.
Please check back for updates!
Students taking the BRC or RRBRC are required to successfully complete an MSF (Motorcycle Safety Foundation) online “e-course” prior to the start of class. Registered students will be provided with a unique code number to log on to the MSF website. The code enables the student to register for the online e-course at no extra charge. The student will then need to show the classroom instructor proof of completion (a printout of the completion certificate or an email with the certificate must be provided).

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: $220 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.
This course is currently available at our Fairfield location!
The Returning Rider BRC is a one-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

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.
Private classes also available! Ask us for more information.
