Course Detail

eRider Basic is an endorsement course for new riders with four to six hours of online classroom instruction and eight hours of range (on-cycle) instruction. The course takes place over two days and builds fundamental street-riding skills and strategies. Classroom is done at home on the computer. Due to COVID-19 health precautions, courses with traditional classroom are not currently available. Training motorcycles 125-250 cc and DOT helmets are provided. For individuals with no riding experience, this is the recommended course.

The online classroom is highly interactive, using video and other features to address risk management, riding strategy, roadway management, impairments and special riding situations like carrying passengers and group riding. Participants complete online Chapters 1 and 2 (riding gear and motorcycle controls) before the first riding session. Students who have not completed Chapters 1 and 2 may be dismissed from class. It is okay to save Chapters 3-6 until after your riding sessions.

Practice riding starts with basic skills, such as getting underway, turning, shifting and stopping, then moves on to the more advanced street skills of emergency braking, cornering and swerving. Riding gear is required for all riding activities.

Get your motorcycle license! This course meets Oregon’s mandatory training requirements for all new riders. Driver and Motor Vehicles (DMV) waives the state on-cycle skill test for riders who successfully complete the course.
