The Advanced RiderCourse is the public version of the Military SportBike RiderCourse (MSRC). The ARC is a one-day course that complements a rider's basic skills and helps with personal risk assessment. It includes a fast-paced classroom segment with several interactive activities to improve perception and hazard awareness. Range exercises enhance both basic skills and crash avoidance skills. Improving braking and cornering finesse is emphasized. The course is beneficial for riders on any type of street motorcycle.

What is taught?

This is a 7 hour, one-day course. The curriculum consists of riding exercises and classroom-type discussions. Riding exercises are designed to improve perception and hazard awareness, enhancing both basic skills and crash avoidance skills, improved braking and cornering finesse, and much more.

Do I need to bring a motorcycle?

Students are encouraged to use their own motorcycle or scooter to maximize skills development, while learning their bike's capabilities and limitations. However, a CCMT training bike may be used, for a nominal additional fee. Your vehicle must be safe to ride as determined by a pre-ride T-CLOCK inspection. We will provide a copy of the T-CLOCK inspection form to you with your enrollment confirmation letter. You will also need to show proof of current insurance coverage and a registration card for the vehicle.

What are the requirements?

There is no minimum riding experience required. However, you must have a valid motorcycle permit, license, or endorsement.

What do I need to wear?

DOT-approved 3/4 or full-face helmet (no 1/2 helmets). Long-sleeve shirt or jacket (must cover the midriff and wrists). Sturdy denim jeans (no sweat pants or dress pants). Full-fingered gloves with leather palms that cover the wrist (no skin showing). Leather or cordura boots, with sturdy soles and tops high enough to completely cover the ankle. Eye protection (glasses, goggles or face shield).

Can I just go to the class?

We accept "walk-ins" on a space available basis only. However, most classes fill in advance. It is best for everyone when you register for class early and guarantee yourself a spot.

What about discounts & rebates?

Dealers, manufacturers, and some rider clubs may offer incentive programs to encourage you to take this class. Many insurance companies offer discounts. The savings can be as much as the course tuition! Check with your insurance agent.

How much does the ARC cost?

The tuition is $170.00 for all ages. If you are under age 18, your parent or legal guardian must sign the required waiver form(s).
