Motorcycle Beginner Classes for
Corporate and Government Agency Employees

Who is a Beginner?

Beginners have little or no riding experience and need to build their confidence and skills.  Quality instruction will dramatically improve their ability to ride and their job efficiency while ensuring their safety and the safety of others with whom they come in contact.

  • Would you like to improve employee safety?
  • Would you like your employees to be more efficient when seasons, climate and riding conditions challenge their abilities?

Class Overview

This class provides the basic skills and information that employees need to safely and efficiently operate agency or company equipment.  This training involves the perfect mix of actual trail riding and off-trail education that ensures that they will be able to navigate trails appropriate for beginning motorcyclists.

Riders participate in a test of their current skill levels so that they can receive maximum benefits from the agency’s investment in the course.
