Basic Rider’s Course

Learn to Ride The Right Way

Learn to ride the right way by taking the Basic Rider’s Course (BRC). Rest assured, our certified RiderCoaches are dedicated to your success. The course is exciting and most educational. The BRC prepares the rider with confidence and the skills needed to ride safely. Upon succeeding, the rider’s motorcycle endorsement will be sent electronically to the Florida Division of Driver’s License. In addition, receive a discount on motorcycle insurance. Your time is valuable, therefore classes are offered nearly every weekend. Choose from a list of course dates.

No riding experience? No worries.  The BRC was designed for riders with no experience or novice riders. The course covers the basic fundamentals to becoming a safe and responsible rider. Each student learns the physical and mental skills necessary for operating a motorcycle. Students are taught in the classroom as well as on the range. Students learn ways to reduce risk and handle special riding situations. In addition, students learn basic control that includes: clutch/throttle control, straight-line riding, turning and shifting. Then move on to the more advanced skills to include stopping quickly, cornering and swerving.

Full attendance, no exceptions. Should something unexpected arise Florida Safe Rider will reschedule the time you missed up to 60 days. Unfortunately, No refund is given. Florida Safe Rider uses curriculum by the  Motorcycle Safety Foundation, a national organization dedicated to safe riding.

Our students receive 5 hours of classroom instruction in a relaxed atmosphere. Thus, the material is taught using lectures, video, written work, and open discussion to ensure comprehension.  No question goes unanswered. The knowledge test is given toward the end of class.  A passing score is 80%.

The Basic Rider’s Course consists of 10 hours of riding on the range. It’s here where our students put their knowledge to work to build skill. The riding skills evaluation (on the range) consists of four exercises that assess limited/space maneuvering skills. These skills include braking, cornering, and swerving competencies. Learn more by visiting Florida Safe Rider’s FAQ page.

What to Bring and Wear

Wear long pants and a long-sleeve shirt. Bring full-fingered gloves (leather gives the best grip), protective shatterproof eye-wear such as sunglasses or goggles. In addition, wear over-the-ankle footwear. We recommend a rain suit (we will ride in a light rain). You may bring a helmet, but not required. FSR provides you with a motorcycle and helmet.
