Advanced Rider Course


The ARC may be taken by riders using any type of motorcycle. It is a one day course. There are ten riding excercises with time for discussion, breaks, and lunch. There is no formal skill test, but there is a knowledge test that may be self-scored (or may be givien as a formal, end-of-course assessment.) The overall aim is to provide rider development in the areas of risk management, decision making, riding strategies, and rider behavior and choices. This includes learner activities to foster gains in knowledge, skill, attitude, values, and habits. (Speeds are higher and maneuvers more challenging than the Basic Rider Course.) BRING YOUR OWN STREET-LEGAL MOTORCYCLE to ride in class. See online Materials List for important information.
