3-Wheel Basic (3WBRC)


REQUIRED FOR ALL 3-WHEEL MOTORCYCLISTS Recognized Motorcycle Safety Training Provider by the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS)

Book a 3-Wheel Basic RiderCourse (3WBRC)

The 3-Wheel Basic RiderCourse (3WBRC) is a two-day class, consisting of approximately 4 hours of classroom the first day and 6 hours of motorcycle training the second day.  Your 3 Wheel Motorcycle will need to be on site for both days.

In the classroom, you will learn ways to minimize risk and handle special riding situations. During the riding portions of the 3WBRC you will be coached to develop the physical skills of basic control that include: clutch/throttle control, straight line riding, stopping, turning, and shifting, and then move on to more advanced skills in stopping quickly, cornering, and swerving.

As a new rider participating in education and training activities, you’re about to embark on an adventure that only three-wheel motorcycle riders can know. If you’re an experienced motorcycle rider transitioning to the world of three wheels, or a rider with some experience riding three-wheel motorcycles (3WMC), you are certain to further your knowledge and skills necessary for riding these exciting vehicles.

3WMC riding can be quite a challenge, not just in learning the controls and acquiring maneuvering skills, but also in finding a safe way through real-world traffic. Your experience and participation will lead to a better understanding of the riding maneuvers and the mental skills necessary to enjoy 3WMC riding to the fullest. Through this process, you might even decide that 3WMC riding is not right for you.
