The Basic Rider Course

The Basic Rider course is the best place for a new rider to start.  If you have been wondering if you would like to ride a motorcycle, if you haven't ridden in a while but ready to get back in, or if you have decided motorcycling is for you, this is your course! We teach you the basics of motorcycling beginning with motorcycle controls and work up to successful motorcycle operations including clutch, shifting, turning, and braking.   Successful completion of this course and its knowledge and skill tests, which consists of approximately five hours of classroom and 10 hours of on-cycle instruction (conducted over two sessions, Saturday and Sunday) waives the written and driving tests at the DMV. If this sounds like the course for you, click on the courses tab above for all the class dates and locations.

Motorcycles and helmets are provided for your use during the course. Also, a course completion card is provided to each student good for a motorcycle insurance discount as required by the State of Tennessee.

Cost of the Basic Ridercourse is $210.00 and includes the motorcycles, helmets, and all the materials. Successful completion of the Baisc RiderCourse waives the written and driving tests at the Tennessee DMV. For more information about class please call us at the office at 931-823-7744.
