Basic Rider Course
The 16-hour Basic Motorcycle Rider course is designed for beginning riders and was developed by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF). Instructors are certified by the MSF and Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT). It is taught off-street, out of traffic, and motorcycles and helmets are provided. The course consists of 6 hours of classroom and 10 hours of on-cycle instruction. The Basic Rider Course covers preparing to ride, turning, shifting and braking, street strategies, special situations, increasing riding skills, maintenance and insurance.
Almost all motorcycling groups recommend that you begin riding your motorcycle by taking a basic rider course. As an added advantage, successful completion of the basic course will qualify you for the class M (motorcycle) operators license without an additional Motorcycle in Traffic skill test. Trainees are provided with a helmet, eye protection and a motorcycle for use during the course.

Classes are offered beginning mid-April and run through mid-October at the NTC Antigo, Wausau, Spencer, Phillips and Medford campuses. For more information or to register for a class, call 715.675.3331, Ext. 5861.
