MSF eCourse Info



Welcome!!!  You have signed up for a RiderCourse (BRC or BRC2) with Total Rider.  This is an important first step to becoming a safer, legal rider… and we congratulate you for it!

Your course includes an MSF (Motorcycle Safety Foundation) online component called the Basic eCourse.  The eCourse is a 3-hour interactive program designed to get you up to speed before the actual classroom portion by providing an introduction to the basics of motorcycling. This eCourse is also the basis of the in-classroom Knowledge Test that you must pass in order to advance to the on-range riding class… so please pay close attention to what you’re learning online!

Completion of the eCourse is required as part of both BRC and BRC2 curriculums.  Below you will find your personal link and instructions to complete the eCourse.  Good Luck!

Getting Started:

1. Now that you have scheduled your class with us, click this link to begin registration for your Basic eCourse with the Motorcycle Safety Foundation.
IMPORTANT: Do not share this link as it is a one-time use for you!  If you have any issues with the eCourse itself, first call MSF Customer Service: (949) 727-3227 before contacting Total Rider, as we are not responsible for the operation of MSF’s eCourse nor its content.

2. Enter your student information in the required fields, then click the “Enroll Student” button.

3. A green message will appear indicating you, hopefully, have successfully enrolled and providing you the opportunity to enroll another person.  Do NOT enroll anyone else!.  Just click on the “Complete Registration” button.

4. On the next page you will be asked to accept one or two liability and waiver agreements.  Click on the checkboxes or just scroll to the end of the agreements.  If you want to receive additional information from MSF fill in the form at the bottom.  Finally, enter and re-enter your email address (whew!).  Once again, click on the “Complete Registration” button.

5. You will then see a confirmation page with your unique password and eCourse link (finally!).  These will also be included in the confirmation email you receive from the MSF. We recommend you save this email to be able to easily refer back to the link and your password.

6. Upon completion of the eCourse, PRINT your completion certificate.  It is valid for 30 days, and you must bring your printed certificate to your first class!

If you have any issues with the eCourse itself, first call MSF Customer Service: (949) 727-3227 before contacting Total Rider, as we are not responsible for the operation of MSF’s eCourse nor its content.
