Intermediate Rider Training (IRT) is an eight-hour course for riders who already know how to get underway, turn, shift and stop a motorcycle. This one-day course builds fundamental street-riding skills and strategies. (Courses with online classroom are also available – study at home for fewer class hours!) Training motorcycles 125-250 cc and DOT helmets are provided, or students may use their own. For riders with limited riding experience or those who haven’t ridden in some time, IRT is the recommended course.
Classroom discussion includes risk management, protective gear, riding strategy, roadway management, impairments and special riding situations. Range (on-cycle) instruction includes low-speed balance and control, emergency braking, counter steering, cornering and swerving.
Get your motorcycle license! IRT meets Oregon’s mandatory training requirements for riders age 21 and older. Driver and Motor Vehicles (DMV) waives the state on-cycle skill test for any rider who successfully completes the course.
IRT is offered at 22 locations across the state. To view course dates, times and to register, click a location on the map below.

Taking an approved course is the first step toward earning a motorcycle endorsement. Before applying for an endorsement at DMV, make sure you understand the Oregon DMV licensing process.
OUT-OF-STATE RESIDENTS Washington accepts TEAM OREGON BRT for a motorcycle endorsement, but not IRT or eRider™ courses. Contact the licensing agency in your home state to verify which courses are accepted before signing up for a TEAM OREGON course.
Completion cards are awarded to graduates of IRT. To receive a completion card, you must attend all classroom and on-cycle riding sessions and pass an on-cycle skill test. DMV waives the on-cycle skill test for graduates who possess a valid completion card, but you will still be required to take the DMV knowledge test. You can study for the DMV test here. Riders who successfully complete IRT are eligible for insurance discounts under Oregon law. For additional information, see Eligibility Requirements and What to Bring.
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.
Remember: You are paying for a reserved seat in a course. Registrations are limited. If you need to reschedule your course or cancel, you must do so at least three days before the course begins to be eligible for a refund. Students who arrive late or leave early lose their reservation and payment.
