Weekend sessions begin Friday from 6:00 p.m. until 9:30 p.m. and continue through Saturday and Sunday from 7:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.(Approximately) During the summer weekday sessions are offered and begin on Tuesday from 9:00 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. and continue through Wednesday and Thursday from 7:30 am to 1:00 p.m. The courses include classroom instruction and on—motorcycle instruction under controlled range conditions. Riders will learn basic skills of motorcycle operation, effective braking and obstacle avoidance, as well as safe riding strategies. Riders will be taught skills normally learned after several years of trial and error riding. Completion of the BRC course prepares the rider for state licensing with an exemption in the skills and knowledge test at the DMV and may qualify for discounts with some motor vehicle insurance companies. The BRC program provides motorcycles (none larger than 500cc) helmets and textbooks for each rider. Area motorcycle dealers who support the program loan the motorcycles and equipment.
