Course Detail

Basic 3-Wheel is a one-day course that prepares students to ride a three-wheeled vehicle on the street. No prior experience is required. Training vehicles are provided.

The course includes four hours of range (on-bike) instruction and 1.5 hours of classroom instruction. Practice riding starts with the basics and gradually adds more complex skills. By the end of the riding session, students will be able to corner, brake and swerve with confidence.

Classroom instruction focuses on handling dynamics unique to three-wheelers and provides an opportunity for open discussion with a three-wheel professional.

Team Oregon has partnered with BRP, which provides the Can-Am Ryker models used in training. These vehicles are reverse trikes (two wheels in front, one in back) and offer great stability. The techniques learned in the course will transfer to other three-wheeled vehicles, like traditional trikes, but there are handling differences that should be taken seriously. We advise additional instruction if you intend to ride a traditional trike or sidecar rig.

Basic 3-Wheel is recommended for new and experienced riders unfamiliar with three-wheeled vehicles, but does not meet state mandatory training requirements for riders to earn a motorcycle license.

Completing a training course is not required for riders of three-wheeled motorcycles in Oregon. Oregon DMV can issue a motorcycle endorsement with a three-wheel restriction after you pass the DMV motorcycle knowledge test. Before applying for an endorsement at DMV, make sure you understand the Oregon DMV licensing process.

Most participants complete the course successfully. However, there is no guarantee of course completion or graduation. Students who fail to demonstrate a minimum level of safety will be dismissed without refund.
