There was 1 spot left for the Labor Day weekend class. It was an overall 3 minute speedy sign-up with no issue. When I... got there, there are about 5 cars in the parking lot across the street. The awkward walk to the “training” lot was weird at first but whatever. The instructors, Claudio and Kathy were extremely nice and helpful. Paperwork was signed and sorted away in a few minutes and we hopped on the motorcycles in the first 20 minutes of the class. They were SO knowledgeable. I remembered to ask a lot of questions and they were quick with great answers that made sense to me (never sat on a bike before.) I’m glad I hopped on the experience. Kudos to the team that OTRA put together. They’re doing something right!read more

The instructors at On The Road were fantastic. I had been learning with a buddy of mine for 1 week prior, highly... recommend going in with a baseline knowledge (but not at all necessary). Old or green, we all got comfortable at our own speeds. The class is smooth and does not waste time. Make sure to stay hydrated if going in the summer, you’re going to sweat (plenty of breaks). Excellent work!read more

I completed the BRC2 course this morning and could not have had a better experience. Tom is a great instructor and took... time to share a few riding tips. It was a great learning/refresher course for anyone who has been riding awhile. Highly recommendedread more

Really happy I went with OTRA School. Kat and Mike were so professional. Starting off with the basics and gradually... increased to give everyone the knowledge to ride safely and defensively. Several attendees never rode before, including my daughter and by the end of the class, I have to say, they looked like naturals on the bikes. I highly recommend the class for anyone who want to learn the right way, or just brush up on their riding skills.read more

Great experience, both instructors Omar and Patty did an amazing job teaching us. The patience both instructors had is... incredible. I went in with minimal knowledge and come out feeling confident that I can safely ride a motorcycle. Anyone considering riding should definitely take this course at this location.read more

I took the course over Father’s Day weekend with Gerry, Adam, Jerry and Kat. This was probably the most informational... course I’ve ever attended- and definitely the most fun. I’d recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn how to ride, who wants to improve, who is interested in getting their license, pretty much anyone really. Everything starts off slow so as you progress, you start to build muscle memory. I really can’t thank my instructors enough.read more

I had an awful experience at this riding school. My first issue with this place was scheduling. My group was scheduled... for Saturday and Sunday from 11 AM - 6 PM. However, there was a morning class that started around 6 or 7 AM, that was using the same bikes we were, and ran late both days, so we did not start riding until 1:30 on the first day and 1:45 on the second day! I have no idea how they could schedule so poorly, but a good chunk of our practice time was taken up literally by just standing there waiting for the first class to finish. So not only did we need to rush to finish the day out, but we finished late both days! On a freezing day, this was really not fun. By the time we actually got on the bikes, I was so freezing and tired from standing outside in cold weather just waiting, and it really interfered with my ability to practice well.I also do not like how this class mixes people of all different riding levels. I was a beginner and had never ridden a bike before, and there were several people in my group who had been riding for years, and were just taking this class to get their license and ride legally. So obviously with such a huge variation in skill level, there is no way a class like that can be productive for everyone. I did not get nearly enough practice doing basic stuff and felt very rushed along, partly because a lot of the others were so far ahead of me in skill level, and partly because we wasted two and a half hours just waiting for the other group to finish so we could mount the bikes. They had to cut a lot of our practice time, so we could finish the skills evaluation before it got dark out. The instructors did know what they were doing and had I been in a class with all beginners that moved slower and started on time, it probably would've been fine. But overall, this was a very negative experience and I would not recommend this place to anyone. Needless to say, I did not pass the skills evaluation and I was not even upset about it because I finished this course feeling nowhere near ready to ride safely on the street, and I do not fault myself for this, I fault the poor planning of this course.read more

This was surely a lifetime experience, I certainly discovered the importance of learning many valid points and advice... for riding, I must admit it wasn't easy but these coaches are absolutely top not h and unbelievably dedicated in teaching you and backing you on every aspect, they will support and help with absolute confidence and determination, I can't say enough about the coaches they are amazing and the nicest people you will ever meet. I recommend the class regardless of what you think you know, knowledge is key and will only help you gain more understanding and experience. I thank the coaches for pointing out my faults and helping me recognize them to better my self. I will eventually go for another class as they have many options for riders if all levels thank you again OTRA it's bin real and valuable!read more

Absolutely a must if you are just starting out. It's a crash course in riding the right way and instilling good habits... from the beginning. The staff is 5 star, knowledgeable, patient and most of all friendly. I recommend to everyone who wants to learn how to ride the right way.read more

I have never been on a motorcycle in my life but learned basic skill and safety with my instructors JP and Pete. It’s... okay to be nervous and ask a lot of questions, just remember to breathe and listen to your instructors advice.Even if you don’t want to own a motorcycle, taking this course is a great life experience and something I’ll never forget.Remember to be prepared with your own helmet, long sleeve shirt, gloves, and over ankle shoes/boots. Bring lots of water and quick snacks as you don’t get long breaks. Enjoy the experience, even the difficult moments. Believe in yourself and keep practicing! A lot of our class went from zero’s to heroes.Big thank you once again to JP and Pete for an amazing course.read more

Good place to learn how to ride. They keep Discipline and order - My only recommendation would be splitting people in... to 2 groups - the ones who need more attention and the ones that who need less. So there is no waiting for the slow guys who can't handle bike quite well. So more advanced group moves quicker.read more

Top Notch. Instructors were knowledgeable and had a great ability to explain things for new riders to understand. I... left the class feeling confident in myself to be a safe rider. Highly recommend. Rob and Bob were great. They conveyed a friendly demeanor but were stern enough when they needed to get points across. Safety was their number one concern and that made an impression on me as I take to the streets.read more

Excellent experience. Teachers were great. They were very knowledgeable and made the safety course practical and fun at... the same time. I recommend them to anyone who is a beginner rider and/or someone with no experience on a motorcycle. I passed the practical test yesterday and officially able to change my M class permit into a full M class license! Don’t have to bring on motorcycle, they provide one for you to use to learn on!read more

With both my sons we took the last session for the 2021 season with Peter and JP. Found it incredibly informative. The... emphasis on rider skill and slow speed balance was excellent. Peter would answer all questions asked. There is a lot to take in for new riders. Bring a clear open mind and you will learn a great deal. Thank you for your time and attention.read more

I took this class with Kathy and Jim as my instructors and it was the best decision I ever made! I personally had next... to no personal riding experience going into the course and was amazed at not only how fast I was able to learn the information from Kathy and Jim, but also how quickly I felt comfortable maneuvering the bike. They did a great job at explaining the more complex/tricky concepts and maneuvers like counter-steering and “Press Right Go Right” that were difficult to understand from the eCourse you complete on your own prior to class. Kathy and Jim were very patient, positive, and honest with their instruction and their passion for riding, and more specifically SAFE and responsible riding, certainly showed throughout the entire course. I’m very happy with my experience and think it is worthwhile for those looking to get into riding as well as those looking for a refresher. The idea of riding can be intimidating, but I definitely feel so much more confident and competent after receiving their instruction.read more

Just took my MSF Basic Rider 2 day course with Peter, Herick and Jay and passed! All three were absolutely helpful.... They answer any questions you have, make the class fun and most importantly put safety as their top priority. As all three of them say, if you listen to them and do what they say everything should work out. I can’t thank these guys enough. Stay safe out there all of you!read more

OTRA is most definitely the place to come and learn how to ride a motorcycle. I took the Basic MSF course with Nick,... Tom, Pete and Eric. All instructors were extremely helpful when it came to learning the nuances of riding a motorcycle. Their technical expertise, ability to guide you through the movements and tell you how to better them is just some of the reasons they excel at what they do. The camaraderie amongst the students and instructors is also unmatched, making it a relaxed environment where one can focus on learning how to ride.read more

I took this course with no prior experience on motorcycles. I had so much fun attending the classes. Learned a lot and... now I have the confidence to ride on the street. The instructors (Kathy, Dean, Jerry) made the whole experience fun. They were polite and respecting during the whole time and I felt comfortable learning to ride.Tip: Two days of riding for a beginner, out under the sun, inhaling fumes, plus having to wake up early is really hard on the body. I tried to eat well and drink a lot of water but I still got dehydrated on the second day.read more

Took the class about 2 months ago. Adam Wood was the best instructor I had on the first day sadly he was not present... on the second day. He had no problem taking the time to teach a person individually if you had an issue or did not understand anything. Highly recommend this course as they teach you the fundamentals. Also, Claudio was also helpful on the second day.read more

I had the best experience at Motorcycle School! My instructors were Gerry, Kat and Claudio. Gerry is the coolest 78... year old woman you will ever meet, she's been everywhere and done everything and has the photos to prove it. All of the educators were incredibly patient and helpful. You have to understand that I am a 5' blonde who had never operated a clutch anything before and I managed to pass my road test in two days. These three instructors are my heroes.read more

I had a great experience. Claudio, Jerry, and Jim were all very patient and knowledgeable. They were able to take... myself from never even having sat on a motorcycle before, to being able to do tight maneuvers with clutch control and even comfortable getting up to speed and changing gears. They helped us to improve our technique to be more successful, but also break any bad habits we would have for future riding. I’d highly recommend to anyone even thinking about it.read more

Excellent course! Both instructors Jerry and Kat were amazing. They were patient, kind (humorous at times) and they... were easy to understand and follow their instructions! We had riders at all different skill levels, and even the ones that never sat on a bike, were up and riding in no time. I was amazed how some of the riders that never rode a motorcycle before went from not knowing what a throttle is, to cruising around the parking lot later that same day. The next day was even more impressive, seeing these new riders 1 day later and they were riding with confidence and skill! I had "some" experience, but what I learned in this course has given me the tools for the rest of my riding days. I highly recommend the class no matter what your skill level. And if you're a beginner, don't be nervous, you are in great hands and they WILL get you riding a motorcycle safely!read more
