Motorcycle Rider Education Courses

Motorcyle Safety

Since 1977, PCC has provided Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) rider training and instruction to thousands of riders of all skill levels. Lessons are taught by nationally certified trainers with riding exercises taught on a dedicated range that’s free from traffic and other hazards.  You will learn ways to reduce risk of injury, avoid crashes, and improve critical riding skills.

  • Introductory Motorcycle Experience (MC 100): A two-hour experience if you are unsure if motorcycling is for you. This is a non-licensing course.
  • Basic RiderCourse™ (MC 103): A twenty-hour class for the beginner rider. This class includes classroom and range time. This course is designed for someone who has not ridden before but can also be taken by someone who has ridden in the past and is returning to motorcycling. The class is conducted on the program’s motorcycles and covers such items as basic controls, risk in motorcycling and developing a strategy to reduce risk, street strategies and applying these on the motorcycle during class. Permit is NOT necessary for the Basic RiderCourse (MC 103).
  • Basic RiderCourse 2™ (MC 201A): A six-hour class conducted on the motorcycle range. Students provide their own motorcycle and must have a permit at minimum. Valid registration and insurance are required for student motorcycle. Class is similar to the Basic RiderCourse™ except the speeds are higher. In addition, for experienced riders, it is a great environment to become familiar with your new-to-you motorcycle!
  • Advanced RiderCourse™ (MC 201B): A nine-hour class conducted both in the classroom and on the motorcycle range. Students are required to have their motorcycle endorsement and provide their own motorcycle for class. Valid registration and insurance are required for student motorcycle. This class complements a rider’s basic skills and helps with personal risk assessment. The range includes exercises on cornering posture and braking techniques more advanced than the Basic RiderCourse™.

RiderCourse™ Requirements

  • Students must be at least 15 years and 6 months of age for any RiderCourse™. Parental permission is required for anyone under 18 years old.

  • A completion card is issued when you successfully complete the Basic RiderCourse™ or Basic RiderCourse 2™. This serves as a license waiver with the Arizona Motor Vehicle Department. A completion card is also issued with the Advanced RiderCourse to use for insurance purposes.

  • Motorcycles are provided during class.
