16 HOUR COURSE –
DMV CERTIFICATE AWARDED
(upon successful completion of course)
 
California Motorcyclist Safety Program offers the Motorcyclist Training Course (MTC), which is designed for the novice rider with no (or limited) street-riding experience. This 16 hour, two-day course includes both classroom and on-cycle instruction. Although designed for new riders, any rider that has not taken a motorcycle course will benefit from this course. You will learn fundamental skills required to operate the motorcycle and progress to street riding skills and strategies. Topics covered include fear, understanding how motorcycles turn, proper cornering strategies, and emergency crash avoidance skills. The course is based on the most current research in rider safety and utilizes modern training methods.
 
This course is mandatory for those under 21 years of age desiring a motorcycle or scooter license. For students under 18, a parent must show ID (or legal guardian proof of guardianship) and sign a waiver at the start of the first class.
 
The course runs on the weekends, Saturday from 8:00am to 4:30pm and Sunday from 8:00am to 4:50pm.  You will have 6 hours of in-class instruction and 10 hours of riding instruction.  Please bring water, snack(s) and a sack lunch, as you will be in your class all day and will not have enough time to leave campus to purchase food.  You must be on time to every part of this course – if you are late, you will be dismissed from the class. 
 
A motorcycle and helmet will be provided for you in this course (if you are wanting to complete the course on a scooter, you must notify us upon registering for the class). You need to bring either your valid (not expired) Government issued photo DMV driver’s license, permit, ID card, foreign license or passport to the first class.  Additionally, you will need to be dressed in a long sleeve shirt or jacket, full finger leather or leather like gloves, long, thick jeans or pants (no spandex/stretch pants) without rips or holes and sturdy, padded over the ankle boots (no fashion boots, high heeled boots, etc.). You must have no exposed skin showing - you need protection on every part of your body.
 
In order to be successful in this course, you are required to have physical stamina, motor-coordination, the ability to ride and balance a bicycle and mental alertness. In accordance with State safety standards, early dismissal may occur during the riding portion of the class if you do not demonstrate safe riding techniques (as determined by the instructor).  Your attendance and participation is not a guarantee that you will be able to successfully complete the course and be granted the certificate of completion.
 
Students successfully completing the class will receive the DMV completion certificate, which waives the riding portion of the DMV test.  Your certificate will be mailed to you within 10 working days of your course completion.  (Note:  you will still need to take the written test at the DMV).
