Which Course Should I Take?

Basic (BRC) or Intermediate (BRC2)?

Here is an easy way to determine which MSF class is right for you. Answering these questions will help you decide.

BRCBasic (BRC)

I have NO —or very limited— experience operating a motorcycle on public roads and need to learn…

  • Controls
  • Gears
  • Shifting
  • Starting the engine
  • Stopping
  • Cornering
  • Riding
  • Clutch control

If the above is true (or if you haven’t ridden in a long time) you need to take the Basic (BRC) class for your motorcycle license.

BRC2Intermediate (BRC2)

I’ve been riding for a few years, and can answer YES to all of the following…

  • Are you an experienced rider with at least two years operating a motorcycle?
  • Do you currently ride a motorcycle on public roads?
  • Can you comfortably ride a motorcycle around a closed course without putting your feet down or worrying about tipping over?
  • Do you already have the fundamentals of starting, stopping, cornering, and shifting gears?

If this is you, then we recommend the Intermediate (BRC2) class for your motorcycle license.

Note! You are required to pass an onsite screening exercise before continuing the Intermediate (BRC2) course.  If you cannot successfully complete the first exercise you will be dropped from the entire course, and will have to pay the full fee to take the Basic (BRC) course. If you are unsure, please enroll in the Basic course.

You can ride your own motorcycle in the Intermediate BRC2 class, but not in BRC.

I’ve been riding my own motorcycles for a few years, and can answer YES to all of the following…

  • Are you a very experienced rider with at least six or more current and consistent months operating a motorcycle, or 3000 or more recent miles under varying conditions?
  • Do you currently possess an M license?
  • Are you prepared to test the limits of you and your motorcycle?…
