This beginning course is for those who have ridden very little or not at all. In this motorcycle Safety Foundation class, you will learn the location and operation of all of the motorcycle controls, and how to balance and ride easily with the most advanced techniques. Experienced riders are encouraged to attend and will find themselves learning new information and gaining new riding skills very quickly. The second day you will learn advanced braking, cornering and swerving techniques, as well as traffic survival strategies.
All students are required to successfully complete an online eCourse & test before taking the Basic Rider Course. The test is “Free” for students registered for the Basic Rider Course. Instructions on how to access the online eCourse will be mailed to you, from the college, two weeks before the class begins. It will take you approximately 3 hours to complete the eCourse and test.
Motorcycles and helmets are furnished.
After successful completion of this class, you will receive an Iowa Department of Transportation certificate of completion. Take this to the Iowa Drivers License Examiners Station to obtain your Iowa motorcycle license. Important: Illinois residents taking this class will still need to take the Illinois motorcycle riding test. The skills taught in this class will help prepare the student to take the Illinois riding test.
Under age 18, you must complete an Iowa approved Motorcycle Rider Education class and Drivers Education to be eligible for an Iowa motorcycle license.
