Let’s Ride.

Whether you’re a seasoned rider with years in the saddle, or someone who has only sat on a bike and made “vroom-vroom” noises, Total Rider can teach you the fine art of proper motorcycle riding.

As the largest MSF school in Central Texas, we’ve introduced more than 35,000 people —just like you!— to the joy of riding. With four convenient locations in and around Austin, TR provides both new and experienced riders the professional, top-tier coaching needed for years of safe, confident motorcycle riding. It’s what we do… and what we do best.

Please take a bit of time to explore our site. It’s full of in-depth info as to which class is better suited for you, what you need to do to prepare, and how to ensure you have a fun, rewarding experience. We are always here to help, answer any questions, and make learning to ride an experience of a lifetime!
