REQUIRED FOR ALL 3-WHEEL MOTORCYCLISTS
MSF CERTIFIED & DPS APPROVED
The 3-Wheel Basic RiderCourse updated (3WBRCu) is a two or three-day long class, consisting of approximately 14 hours including the classroom portion (which is student-driven type learning) and on motorcycle training. We provide the latest 3-Wheel Motorcycles for the riding portion.
In the classroom, you will learn ways to minimize risk and handle special riding situations. During the riding portions of the 3WBRCu, 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.
Riding Day (required): DOT approved serviceable helmet (we have helmets available to borrow if necessary), eye protection, full finger gloves (leather preferred), long sleeve shirt or jacket, full-length non-flare pants, and over the ankle boots. You will not be allowed to participate without meeting these requirements. See our REQUIRED Gear page. Also, please bring lunch and/or snack, and plenty to drink, especially during hot weather.
Consider dressing in layers, bring extra shirts and/or a jacket to change into if there is a chance of rain. We ride rain or shine, hot summer to winter cold. Bring plenty of water on hot days!
All books and study materials will be provided by Total Rider.
Classroom: Please bring a snack and something to drink.
All students fill out the Total Rider Course Waiver and bring it to class to save time. Don’t forget to bring your driver’s license or photo I.D.
While students are not required to use our three wheeled vehicles it is strongly encouraged. If you plan to bring your own 3WMC you must contact our office to make sure it meets our requirements. Your 3WMC will be required to undergo a safety check before entering the range, and proof of insurance will be requested by your instructor.
