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.
