Book a Basic RiderCourse (BRC)

Total-Rider-BRC-Course-in-action-at-our-Hutto-locationThe Basic RiderCourse (BRC) teaches both men and women the mental and physical skills that new, inexperienced, or return motorcyclists need for safe and enjoyable street riding, and is specifically designed for those seeking a class “M” license. We introduce the basic controls (throttle, clutch, brakes) and work up through the advanced survival skills of braking, cornering, and swerving.

TR_classroomMost of our BRC classes consist of approximately 5 hours of classroom time and 10 hours of motorcycle training on a closed course; the first night is the classroom portion, followed by two half-days of riding.  We also offer 2-day BRC classes at some of our locations.

A completed BRC class may also qualify for insurance discounts and discounts at dealerships.
