Basic Rider Course (BRC)
The BRC is specifically designed for the novice or re-entry rider. This course is held over a weekend or two full days during the week. Our weekend BRC is held Friday evening from 6:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., Saturday and Sunday approximately 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Our weekday classes vary as to time and days. In order to obtain a Course Completion Card to waive the DOL testing you must pass a written and riding evaluation.

We offer two options for the BRC: the Subsidized and Non-Subsidized Courses. The course content is the same for both courses.
The Subsidized Course costs $125 for any Washington State resident over 18 years of age and $50 for any resident under 18 years of age. This course is partially funded by the Department of Licensing and allows us to provide courses 1 or 2 times per month within our business season (typically late March through early November).
Our Non-Subsidized Courses are held once or twice a month and cost $200 per student. These courses are not funded through the Department of Licensing. Since Subsidized Courses fill quickly and we often have a waiting list, Non-Subsidized Courses are an excellent option for those who prefer not to wait.
