Basic Rider Course (BRC) MOTORCYCLES ARE PROVIDED FOR THIS CLASS!!!!

The BRC is specifically designed for the new rider or re-entry rider.

This class includes the Permit Written Test and the Permit Skills Test. Successfully completing both tests during this class will get you your PERMIT. To obtain a full motorcycle endorsement you must then succesfully pass both the Endorsement Written Test and the Endorsement Skills test either by taking an Intermediate Rider Course, or by attending one of our Endorsement Testing Sessions. WA State requires that riders must complete all 4 tests in order to get their endorsement.

This course is about 15 hours long and is held over a weekend or two full days during the week.

Our weekend BRC is held Friday evening from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM, Saturday 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM & Sunday 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM. 

Our weekday/2 day classes are held 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM both days. The curriculum is the same as the weekend classes, just held on two full days vs the weekend class that is designed to fit around a typical Monday-Friday 9-5 employee since it starts at 6:00 PM- giving the student some time to leave work and get to the classroom.

This class will provide the rider with knowledge, confidence and riding skills practiced in a safe, controlled environment.  After successful completion of both the Permit Written Test and the Permit Skills Test- the students scores are electronically entered into the DOL system. Students then may go in person to the Driver Licensing office to obtain their motorcycle learner’s permit or electronically by visting this link https://www.dol.wa.gov/onlinesvcs.html.
