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 successfully 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 currently held over two days, Friday and Saturday from 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM. Future classes are expected to be added as a new range location is awaiting approval.
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 visiting this link https://www.dol.wa.gov/onlinesvcs.html.
