Motorcycle Classes

Motorcycle Safety BRC

The Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) Basic RiderCourse (updated) is a learn-to-ride education and training safety program that consists of the MSF Basic 3 hour eCourse to address basic motorcycle knowledge, 5 hours of classroom instruction with a RiderCoach to address rider perception and risk management, and then 10 hours of on-cycle, hands-on instruction.  A course completion card may provide an insurance discount.  Riders must be able to balance a bicycle to participate in the riding portion of the course, and a riding skills test must be passed for successful completion.  Space is limited in each class, so pre-registration and pre-payment is required for this class.  Each participant will be provided a unique log-in for the 3 hour eCourse portion of the class. Classes are held on the Ottumwa Campus in the Advanced Technology Center, room 112 and are instructed by V. Crabtree.
