Intermediate Rider Training Course Detail

Intermediate Rider Training (IRT) is an eight-hour endorsement course for returning and unlicensed 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.

The course provides four hours of in-person classroom instruction and four hours of range (on-cycle) instruction. (Note that masks and social distancing may be required in the classroom. Courses with online classroom are also available – study at home instead!) Training motorcycles 125-250 cc and DOT helmets are provided, or students may use their own. For riders with previous riding experience or those who haven’t ridden in some time, intermediate 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. Riding gear is required for all range activities.

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.

Motorcycle endorsement and training laws have NOT been suspended due to the pandemic. Riding legally in Oregon still requires an endorsement or permit.

Completion Requirements


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 permit, 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 e-mailed 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. 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.

DMV Testing

DMV waives the on-cycle skill test for graduates of IRT, but riders must pass the DMV knowledge test and apply for a motorcycle endorsement to complete the licensing process. Study the Oregon Motorcycle & Moped Manual to prepare for the DMV test. You can view the manual online or pick up a printed copy at DMV. The manual is also available in audio format.
