The Basic Rider Course offers the most complete motorcycle training available. Students must complete 14.5 hours of integrated instruction: 4.5 hours in the classroom and 10 hours of practice on a training motorcycle.

This course is divided into two phases: Level 1 concentrates on motorcycle familiarization, clutch control, throttle control, riding posture, and the four basic skills: straight-line riding, turning, shifting, and stopping. Level 2 includes limited-space maneuvers, counter-steering, cornering, and swerving. Minnesota law requires motorcyclists under age 18 to pass an approved Rider Skills Training course. While no previous motorcycle riding experience is required, it can be beneficial.

Students must be able to ride a bicycle and must possess a valid driver's license or motor vehicle instruction permit. Each student must furnish his or her own protective clothing and DOT-approved helmet. One-hundred percent attendance is mandatory. If you want your motorcycle endorsement you must have your motorcycle permit before the course starts. Note: Riders who have already failed a state and/or MMSC skill test twice are not eligible for the State Skill Test Waiver. All subsequent skill tests for a motorcycle endorsement must be taken at a DVS exam station.
