Motorcyclist Training



Students MUST HAVE:


Due to the Corona Virus, our San Marcos and El Centro sites are shut down for March and April. CLASSES IN SAN DIEGO ARE SHUT DOWN WHILE THE DMV IS CLOSED, BUT YOU MAY CONTINUE TO SIGN UP FOR APRIL DATES. Please take precautions when scheduling classes. If you are not feeling well, contact the office and do not attend class. We will have cleaning products to wipe off tables and surfaces that are touched frequently. We highly encourage all students to bring their own gloves and helmets to minimize contact. Thank you for working with us during this situation.  

 The California Motorcyclist Safety Program Motorcyclist Training Course (CMSP MTC) is designed for the novice rider with no (or limited) street-riding experience. This course includes both classroom and on-cycle instruction. You will learn fundamental skills required to operate the motorcycle and progress to street riding skills and strategies.

Topics covered include fear, understanding how motorcycles turn, proper cornering strategies, and emergency crash avoidance skills. The course is based on the most current research in rider safety and utilizes modern training methods.

Though designed for new riders, any rider that has not taken a motorcycle course will benefit from this clinic.
