Successful completion of the MSF Basic RiderCourse qualifies you for a motorcycle license road test-waiver with the New York State DMV.  The course will provide you with the opportunities and experiences to acquire the basic knowledge and skill that enable you to continue to practice and develop your safe riding habits. Safe riding is also a matter of attitude. Successfully completing the MSF Basic RiderCourse is not a guarantee that you will be safe on the road. Only you can choose the level of safety you wish to maintain. In order for a participant to earn their NYSMSP Basic RiderCourse License Waiver Completion Card they must successfully complete the eCourse (on-line), the written test in the classroom,  and the skills evaluation on the range. We offer two training schedules for the MSF Basic RiderCourse:  2 Day,  2.5 Day,  All schedules consist of the same amount of training hours. 

3 Hours completed online (this part is done on your own time at home prior to first day of your course), Approx 5 hours of Classroom activities including a written test and Approx 10 hours of hands on training/riding exercises including a skill test on the motorcycle.
We highly recommend the 2.5 day schedule for students with little to no riding experience.

The Basic RiderCourse is conducted at a pace that results in successful completion for most novice riders. The Rider Coaches will help you learn to the best of your ability. If you have significant difficulty or become a risk to yourself or others, as determined by you or your Rider Coaches, you will not be permitted to continue to ride (other options may be available for developing your riding skills). To successfully complete the course, you must:

  • Attend all sessions
  • Achieve a minimum score on a knowledge test covering course materials
  • Achieve a passing score on a riding-skill evaluation
  • Complete the 3 hour eCourse & hand in certificate of completion
  • E-Course must be completed within 30 days of date your course begins

The riding-skill evaluation consists of five exercises that assess limited-space maneuvering skills as well as braking, cornering, and swerving competencies.

  • Ability to ride a bicycle.
  • Full protective attire is required.
  • Must be of legal age to operate a motorcycle on the street.
  • The ability to push and turn a 300-pound motorcycle repeatedly to change direction, for the first exercise of the day.

Any individual, 16 years of age or older, who wishes to take the course, must possess  a valid Driver’s License.

Junior License holders must hold a valid motorcycle permit for at least 6 months before DMV will add motorcycle endorsement to license.

Any person younger than 18 years must also have the signed and notarized permission of his/her parent(s) or legal guardian. To qualify for the Road Test waiver, the student must present a current and valid New York State driver’s license. All students must provide and wear the following personal items for all on-motorcycle instruction:

  • Over-the-ankle footwear (not cloth, canvas, etc.)
  • Long non-flare denim pants or material of equivalent or better durability.
  • Long-sleeved shirt or jacket.
  • Full-fingered gloves, preferably leather.
  • Appropriate eye protection (not needed if you are using your own DOT approved helmet with Face Shield).
