The course builds basic street-riding skills and strategies. The on-bike portion is done in-person, on-site. Training motorcycles 125-250cc and helmets are provided. The classroom portion is done in-person, on-site. For riders 21 and older with previous motorcycle experience, an intermediate course is recommended.

The on-bike training includes low-speed balance and control, emergency braking, countersteering, cornering and swerving. Riding gear is required for all range activities.

The classroom portion is done in-person, on-site. (Note that face masks may be required in the classroom.) The classroom prepares students for the on-bike training and for riding on the street.

Completion Requirements


Getting your endorsement is done in three steps:

  • Take the course
  • Pass the test
  • Go to DMV

Before going to DMV, make sure you understand the Oregon DMV licensing process.

You must wear boots, gloves, long pants, long sleeves, eye protection and a DOT helmet to participate in the riding sessions. See full details in What to Bring.

You must attend all classroom sessions and on-bike riding sessions and pass an on-bike skill test. Upon successful completion, you must visit DMV and apply for a motorcycle endorsement to complete the 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.
